Hi everyone,

I'm the Technical Director at Three Phase Interactive. Here's some details of our debut game, Stunt Star, which is coming soon.

Relive the life of a Hollywood stuntman as it flashes before his eyes. Crash, explode, catch on fire, crash and crash again before finally you succeed... then it’s on to the next stunt until at last you come to his final leap. Failure is just as glorious as success as you flip, fly, crash and succeed.


Key features:

Genuine physics-based stunt jump game – draw the ramp and manage your speed and in-air balance to land the jump

Impressive vehicle list – master the many vehicles from bikes to monster trucks, each with its own unique characteristics

Extensive upgrade system – purchase upgrades to your vehicles and gadgets including nitrous, ejector seats and car parachutes for rapid braking

Over-the-top stunts and level design – overcome obstacles including flying helicopters, moving traffic and windmills to pull off insane stunts and please the movie director

Return to improve your score – return to levels you’ve beaten and use your upgrades and unlocked vehicles to find alternative solutions and previously unreachable collectibles

Huge amount of stunts to master – 72 levels await across three worlds with more levels, worlds, vehicles and upgrades coming soon.


Development History

Three Phase Interactive is comprised of three former Blue Tongue Entertainment employees. Paul Baker wanted to use his experience as a lead programmer in a AAA studio to create something of his own. Chris Burns approached him and they started working together, with Drew Morrow joining the fold as the studio really took flight.

Paul and Chris share a mutual love for cars and motorcycles, and they wanted to explore that with Stunt Star: The Hollywood Years. What started out as a simple idea of a 2D car going over a jump has quickly turned into a full garage of vehicles, along with a full set of customisation options that mirror their passion.

The team believes in delivering raw gameplay rather than narrative-driven experiences. By offering a large amount of player customisation, each player can enjoy a unique gameplay experience. While the team is looking to branch out with something new for their next release, they feel that player customisation is something that will always be important to them.

Stunt Star: The Hollywood Years is currently set for an Oct 2012 release on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

Looks great, thanks for the comments above from real testers (not 1 posters).

Do you have to draw the ramps on every level ?

I tested it too its a really fun game kept me laughing, I'm going to buy it still when it comes out I think it's worth supporting good products, plus I feel they deserve to have good reviews in the AppStore on day one.

I've lucky enough to have tested some excellent games these past couple of months
