Stunt Gal must jump, swing, and fight, all to escape a bricky death via a helicopter on the roof. In Stunt Gal:Crumblejack, players can fall to their doom, swing on pipes, or even get electrocuted while fighting ninjas, jumping on aliens, and getting a cuddle from a squirrel. Chris Kempt, founder of Kempt games, said: “ We’re really excited to release the latest game in the Magnificent Stunts series, starring everyone’s favorite stunt woman, Gail Stunt. Stunt Gal blends the art house sensibilities of The Grand Budapest Hotel with the building demolishing action of Transformers: Age of Extinction”.
