Lego Island may not be the most appealing of locations but it must certainly have something going for it considering that a big Hollywood filmmaker has chosen it as the setting for his latest blockbuster. Packed full of action sequences and crazy stunts, this film is in need of a decent stuntman and, funnily enough, there just so happens to be one living in the area. Pepper Roni, to be exact.

Island Xtreme Stunts sees players take on the role of Pepper, dashing from shoot to shoot as they drive, fly, jump, and skate through five extreme stunt games, which take them all over the vast Lego Island. Along the way there are a variety of sub-quests and puzzles, which involve Pepper's friends, as well as the mischievous Brickster, who can regularly be found on set, trying to spoil each scene. Nasty piece of work, that one!

Just some of the predicaments players will find themselves in include chasing the nasty Brickster through heavy traffic, riding a motorbike over a construction site, flying a plane rollercoaster style, and cloud-surfing on a sky board.

Aside from the main mode, there's also a fair bit of fun to be had with the game's customisation options, which allow players to change the colour, style and appearance of most objects on the Island. Also, completion of the sub-quests and an observant eye during the game rewards players with trading cards, which can be collected and used to unlock sub-games.

Consider this as a kind of Stuntman for the younger generation.
