Park Life: Tricky Truck

By Kieron Gillen on August 2nd, 2010 at 9:48 am.

I'm quietly proud of this screenshot. The game in a grab! Go!

Thanks to Terry for bringing ESSENTIAL INFORMATION to us which we must DISSEMINATE immediately. As part of the current Assembly GameDev compo the maker of the immortal Sumotori Dreams has released a new game. Archee continues his muse (“Drunken Real Time Physics” has a certain ring) with Tricky Truck. It’s basically a micro-Stunt Car Racer with articulated Lorries, with you having to park your enormous vehicle at the end of a course. Not as funny as Sumotori Dreams, but more of a real game, I recommend giving it a try in hard mode, where you have to drive inside your truck and rely on checking out your mirrors and looking around desperately to stop yourself careening into harm. Go gets.

    The trickiest part IMHO was how the game slowed to a crawl whenever I hit anything.

    Then again, if I werte drunk and had to calculate a lot of physics stuff I would take my sweet time as well.

    Challenge 8 is pretty much what driving a lorry on Death Road must feel like.

    This is surprisingly fun. It’s the little things in life.

    This is like that game and that other game got together and made this. You know what I’m talking about, that game.

    Ah CMonster…I haven’t read about someone’s need to DISSEMINATE ESSENTIAL INFORMATION for far too many years now.

    Happy, happy memories…

    And this couldn’t have waited until after the compo? I think it’s a bit unfair to advertise a single entry like this.

    @Paol You can press Backspace to go back a few seconds which makes it much easier.

    How many wheels can you lose, but still park successfully? My current record is 3.

  9. Vylav says:

    On challenge five I landed short and pulled off the back quad of wheels, leaving 6 to park with.

  10. Simon says:

    Then I’ve got good news for you!
    The game saves like every 15 seconds. Press backspace to go back one savepoint.
