What parents need to know

Ease of play

Flinging the poor guy around and causing damage to him is incredibly easy to do.

Violence

You throw your helmeted stuntman around, battering him, burning him, electrocuting him, breaking his bones, etc. The whole point of the game is to hurt the guy as much as possible; and you watch him change over the process. There is no blood.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Stunt Junkie HD is a ragdoll game that asks players to toss a flopping human stuntman around a backyard and see how much damage they can cause to his body in two minutes. He can break bones in falls, get shocked by telephone wires, burned in a chimney, etc. There's no blood, but the man does gets visibly charred when he interacts with fiery obstacles. It's a game based entirely around the sadism of movies like Jackass, and despite its "do not try this at home" disclaimer, would be best kept away from children.

QUALITY
 

STUNT JUNKIE HD has some great technology behind it, but it's incredibly sadistic. Obviously inspired by the Jackass films, the game assumes that you will enjoy tossing around a little football-helmeted human being and seeing how many ways you can do damage to him. It's basically a sandbox game (and you can, in fact, play an endless unscored mode), and the backyard barbecue world you're given offers a whole lot of creative ways to hurt that poor guy. However, there is only the one level. An opening screen asks you to choose a level, but the backyard is the only option. The game's iTunes writeup promises updates to come (which we can assume would include more levels), but so far none have arrived. Even if you're into the extreme stunt gameplay, there's only so much you can do on one level.
