In most driving games, you’re supposed to dodge stuff, and maybe (like in Mario Kart) take flying leaps off ramps and try to avoid wiping out on a turn. But what if you could jump any time you wanted? What if gravity was a nuisance rather than a requirement and you could drive upside down? Jaggy Race is a 2 dimensional track racer (kind of more like 2.5 because the camera swerves around a bit) that is smooth, responsive, with good controls, and clever tracks. The tracks are actually puzzle-like levels, so you can just try finish or you can try for a gold trophy. No nonsense car and driver, and I like that the driver wears a helmet! Very good tutorial, and a lite version is available to give it a try (which is why I did). The artwork is nearly console quality and the gameplay reminds me of another favorite, Kona’s Crate.
