Description of S.T.U.N. Runner
STUN Runner is PC conversion of Atari's excellent futuristic arcade racing game from 1989, a mixture of rollercoaster racing, bobsled and a shoot'em up game.
The game uses polygonal 3D graphics which are fairly fast but sadly not very smooth. The game is quite fun and very challenging as you almost always have to take a perfect route over the extras to stay in the time limit. Not an arcade perfect conversion, but above average considering its time. Not as innovative or offering as much longevity as other futuristic racing classics (e.g. Powerdrome), but still way ahead of most others in that period.

I love games like this, seems to be few modern equivalents that are as fun to play. Does anyone have any suggestions? WipeOut and its clones are ok, but I never quite liked the control mechanics. Trench Racer on android and iOS is ok, but more of a shooter. Found little else though that are as fun to play. On reflection I think I prefer more of the shooter type, I hate hitting the side of the track all the time - just want to shoot stuff.

I had the joy of playing this at an arcade in the 90's. I was instantly addicted! Yes, the graphics are dated now, but it was an exciting adrenaline rush at the original cabinet game. It was the only arcade version I ever saw, and sadly the arcade close soon after. I am glad to find it again. I hope others enjoy it as much as I did!
