Wipeout racing games became very popular in the 90s' with TV programs of the likes of Takeshi's Castle. In this show, the contestants had to try to complete circuits full of stupid obstacles whilst the Japanese movie director Takeshi Kitano and Hayato Tani had fun making the poor guys suffer as much as possible.
Well, here we won't find all those stupid mini-games or any Japanese guys dressed up in weird outfits, but a competition in which we'll have to try to complete obstacle courses trying to reach the finish line as fast as possible and in one piece.
The closest thing to playing Takeshi's Castle on Android
The APK of Legendary Stuntman Run offers us an assorted selection of games for our smartphone or tablet in which we'll handle an incompetent contestant that, dressed up in an elegant bathing suit, has to reach the end of the path avoiding all sorts of obstacles on his way. The difficulty is progressive, increasing as we advance and overcome screens.
- 3D settings with fluid graphics.
- Simple controls.
- Dozens of races to be completed.
- Different game modes.
- Different characters to choose from.
How to play?
The game offers us a simple control system. On the left-hand side of the screen, we'll control the direction and speed of our athlete, and on the right when he shall jump and duck. As we mentioned above, the game gets more difficult as we make progress, demanding better reflexes and quicker thinking. But if he falls over, there's no reason to worry... it's all part of the fun of the game.
