Ah, the simple joy of driving a high-powered vehicle over a ramp, through a windmill and into a oil tanker, while the driver flies through the window for a hundred-yard bonus. It’s something no one wants to experience in real life, but the Flatout series of games has allowed driving enthusiasts the vicarious thrill of a spectacular crash for years now. Developer Team6 aims to bring that thrill to Android, with a new mobile sequel titled FlatOut-Stuntman [sic]. The game will be exclusive to device with Nvidia Tegra processors. If you’re unfamiliar with Flatout, it started way back on the PlayStation 2 in 2005. Taking the old driving stunt formula and adding some much-needed black humor. Stunts are awarded points on style, destruction and cringe-inducing mayhem, often involving the driver smashing through the car windshield and onto the track. Rag doll physics make for some interesting results post-crash. It’s all played for laughs, but isn’t recommended for those with a delicate disposition. Flatout-Stuntman will be a series of short, intense tracks where the player’s goal is to maximize destruction.
Two versions of the game will be released: one that blows out the graphics for new Tegra 3 phones and tablets, and a toned down version for devices that use the older Tegra 2. While the developer hasn’t released any details so far, the driving gamer in me can’t help but be excited at the prospect. Hey Sega, aren’t we due for a Crazy Taxi port on Android?
