Stunts, a game released in 1990, is a racing game that stands out for its unique and highly engaging track-building feature. This aspect of the game, where players can design and construct their own race tracks, is what sets Stunts apart from other racing games of its time. The ability to create corkscrews, loops, jumps, and a variety of other stunt-worthy obstacles allows for a highly personalized and creative gaming experience.

In addition to the track-building element, Stunts offers the core experience of a racing game, with players competing to achieve the fastest times on various tracks. The driving mechanics are typical of the era, providing a solid and enjoyable racing experience. While the game's sounds and controls align with the standards of the early '90s, they contribute to an authentic retro gaming feel that can be particularly appealing to fans of classic games.

However, it's the track construction that truly shines in Stunts. Players have the freedom to create wildly imaginative tracks, which can range from realistically challenging to outrageously impossible. This creative freedom not only adds an extra layer of fun but also introduces strategic elements to the gameplay. For instance, players can design tracks that are particularly difficult for the computer-controlled opponents to navigate, giving them a strategic edge in races.

Moreover, the game allows for inventive shortcuts and unconventional routes, adding an element of surprise and innovation to the racing experience. This aspect encourages players to think outside the box, both in terms of track design and racing strategy.

While Stunts may not have groundbreaking graphics or the advanced features of modern racing games, its charm lies in its simplicity and the creative potential of the track-building feature. It's a game that appeals to both racing enthusiasts and those who enjoy a touch of creativity and customization in their gaming experience.

In summary, Stunts is more than just an average racing game. Its standout track-building feature, combined with the solid racing mechanics of its time, offers a unique and enjoyable experience. The game's ability to blend traditional racing with creative construction makes it a memorable title and a must-try for fans of classic racing games and those who enjoy a blend of creativity and competition.
