Doritos Crash Course (originally conceived as Avatar Crash Course) is a 2.5D sidescrolling platforming advergame developed by Wanako Games for the Xbox 360's Xbox Live Arcade service. It was released on December 8, 2010 for free as one of the finalists of the Doritos-sponsored "Unlock Xbox" competition for 2010, alongside Harms Way.[1] The game's concept came from Raleigh, North Carolina gamer Jill Robertson, who was inspired by Japanese game shows such as Sasuke/Ninja Warrior and the Western game show Wipeout. On December 29, 2010, the game was announced the winner of the second "Unlock Xbox" competition.[2]

A Windows 8 version of the game, Doritos Crash Course Go!, has since been released.

Gameplay

Players must get their Xbox 360 avatars through increasingly difficult obstacle courses. The game consists of three different locales (USA, Europe, and Japan), each with five levels. In each locale, the obstacles get harder to avoid and time taken to complete each course becomes higher. Common obstacles include vertical pistons, swinging hammers, trampolines, swinging ropes, metal climbing chains, conveyor belts of varying speed and direction, collapsing floors, levitation platforms, and water balloons. Players with an Xbox Live membership may compare times with friends or play head-to-head against online opponents.

Reception

As of year-end 2010, Doritos Crash Course has been downloaded over 1.4 million times.[3] It has received an aggregated review score of 74 on Metacritic, based on five reviews.[4]

Downloadable content

On January 2, 2013, the "City Lights" DLC was made available for 160 Microsoft points. The pack contains fifteen levels spanning Las Vegas and London, along with the new Japan-Easy levels (toned-down versions of the Japan levels from the original game).

Sequel

On May 8, 2013, the sequel to Doritos Crash Course was released for free on Xbox Live Arcade.[5]
