Stunt Dive – Are you a real stunt man?

Jumping is fun. Jumping into water is more fun. Jumping into water from an enormous height is dangerous, but the most fun as well. A game developing company called Agens had a similar thought when creating Stunt Dive.

The name says it all: it is a game about stunt diving. You have three jumps in which your task is to get as many points possible. Each jump is scored separately and the sum of all three jumps gives the end score. Each jump has three segments which are scored: tricks, style and air. If two same types of stunts are used in the same game, the second one will be scored with 0. The jury values innovation, which means that a different style of jump will give you more points than similar jumps. Another important aspect is the landing. If you enter the water vertically, as is the norm, you will be awarded more points and any other landing (for example, flat on your belly) will lower your score. After three jumps the game offers to upload your score and see how you ranked.

There are five different stunt types to perform: Type A means no flips, Type B stands for front flips, Type C for back flips, Type D means side flips and Type E stands for the hardest of all: twisted side flips. Player controls the diver with SPACE for jumping, UP arrow for spin, DOWN arrow for side flip, LEFT arrow for back flip and RIGHT arrow for front flip.

All in all, Stunt Dive is a small and simple game with no new, innovating mechanics. It may be too simple for its own good, however. With repetitive design, it is bound to make you bored fast and search for a new way to spend your free time, maybe try StrikeForce Kitty 2.
