Based on the stupifyingly realistic simulator Desert Bus, Desert Truck aims to bring all of the excitement of driving a truck down an endless stretch of desert highway to the palm of your hand. Feel the engine roar. Count the cacti as they fly by. Fear for your life and career as you plow over street signs and desert plant life after falling asleep at the wheel. Watch out for that slight pull to the left! Do you have what it takes to rack up the miles in this endless game of trucking excitement?

The CB radio and hula dancer have already been unlocked! What could be next?

Amazing features:
-Real time day cycle based on the actual time of day
-Accelerometer controls.
-Odometer is backed up online to track the total miles driven for every copy of Desert Truck
-Pine-scented air freshener

Coming soon, achievements, Game Center, and global distance traveled milestones that will unlock mildly interesting new features such as a hula girl bobbler, tumbleweed, a CB Radio with interesting characters to listen to, and actual goals!

Have an interesting suggestion for an unlock, or something you'd like to see improved? Leave a review. I appreciate your constructive feedback.

Disclaimer: This game is intended for novelty purposes and, while amusing, has no ending and is not challenging. The road is always straight, and it merely requires you to hold the gas and correct the steering’s slight pull to the left. In order to fully enjoy the game, it is suggested that you make up your own goals or sing travel songs. Future versions of the game will include challenges and achievements to make the game a bit more interesting.

YOU can make it nice w/ no updates!


Everybody is saying that it needs updates but I don't think! You can literally make it the game of your dreams and u won't even have to update! What I did was that I just drove for a long time and once I realized that there is nothing new to this game, I used my imagination! I pretended that I was lost with my friends and that we were trying to get out. Once I saw the big hearted Betty thing and found out that there is nothing that u can do in there, I pretended that it was a restaurant and that Betty let us stay the night there. Then I got to the second one and I pretended that THAT one was called full hearted fanny! And she is cousins with Betty. Then we got out and we celebrated. (u can't get out! I made that part up!) after that I deleted the game. Of course it was way more detailed than that cuz I had dialogue and stuff but basically the same thing. U may not like my version, but u can create your own. We also falsely got pulled over by police and told us to get home before 12 because of curfew. But anyway, just use your imagination! It's actually pretty fun! Speed limit is pretty slow though. But u can't use your imagination to Change that soooo



It's ok, but it gets old. There should be different trucks to drive, maybe upgrades that you can buy with money earned from hauling cargo. The truck doesn't sound very good, it's like it's idling high when you accelerate. It'd be cool if it had that straight six wine to it that sounds like a strong heater. You also should be able to give it different amounts of throttle and even gun it and go top speed. I would also like to see fuel consumption, thus giving the truck stops purpose. It'd be nice if you could buy snacks and drinks at the truck stops too, thus renewing your energy and allowing the truck(driver to steer better). The brakes don't make any sound at all and stop the truck much too quickly to be realistic. Also, the truck is much too slow. If these things were added I would gladly pay $5+ for the full version.

Great game!


No one seems to read the description. the point is to just drive. The game would be a lot more awesome if their was... 1st a Chance to go over the speed limit and if you get stopes by a cop twice game over first times a warning. 2nd oncoming and on going traffic so you can swerve around them. 3rd a gas limit feature and gas stations were you will have to put gas ever 10 miles or 5. 4th difficulty levels where every things more realistic(tires worn out) or just plain arcade(drive) that is all looking foward to an update possible top 10 free games :)
