Fresh off the production line from Little Chicken Game Company, REKT! High Octane Stunts is spinning to Switch eShop today. If the trailer above is anything to go by, it combines the floaty, spin-heavy physics of Rocket League with a neon skate park style and couch co-op gameplay that looks like it could be worth taking for a spin.
Advertised as running at a 'smooth 60 frames per second', it turns Tony Hawk's Pro Skater into a RC racing game as you pull off stunts and kickflip your car while building up combos. With a whole bunch of modes, from old-school High Score to Capture the Crown and another where you have to infect other players with a virus (appropriately called 'Virus' mode), it seems the game has plenty to keep you and up to three other players occupied.
Here are a few of the standout features according to the game's official blurb:
- Stunts, lots of 'em!
- Three main arenas to do stunts in
- Time-limited High Score mode with global leaderboard
- Practice mode to test skills and learn new tricks
- Over fifty customizable cars to unlock
- An almost endless amount of challenges
- Up to four players in different multiplayer modes: Score, Virus, Baja, Capture the Crown.
Available today, a 50%-off launch sale brings it down to $2.99 / £2.69 on the Switch eShop until December. For that sort of investment, it could be worth a look if you and three friends are in the mood for some couch co-op fun over the weekend. Only time will tell if it's got what it takes to make it on to our best couch co-op Switch games list, but the trailer looks promising.
