Most shareware games frankly aren’t worth paying for and the demo is all you really need. Not so with Sector3’s StuntManiaPro. This game is well worth the less than 10 Aus you have to pay for it. While not a “session” game, it perfectly for those little fillups of time you get where you want to do something fun but don’t want to get into anything long and drawn out. One of the neat features is timed games where you set the amount of time you do stunts for and then try to do as well as you can.

As you would expect you can select to have your highscores ranked against the rest of the world. I am currently number one as Lagwolf, but I suspect I will lose that position this weekend. You have a variety of cars, 5 in all, ranging from a semi tractor to a dune buggy. They all have advantages and downsides, it will take you a bit of time to determine which works on which track and you own driving style. There are currently, they add more stuff which each free update, four tracks with a variety of ramps and bonuses. As this is an arcade game there are some power-ups that let you jump higher or go faster.

Not much thinking involved in this game but that is the beauty. Its runs quick, easy and painlessly. More than enough to keep you happy until EA finally gets their finger out and gets Mac users NFS: Carbon. There is a PC version of the game as well.

Inexpensive, quality fun is hard to come by…well worth supporting.
