Great scenery, fun game!
In case you might be thinking this is a port of the iOS game, you are wrong. The iOS version was inspired by this original Mac version which includes a lot more levels. (Developers: the description should really have the level count and maybe even include how this game came before the iOS version). My favorite thing about this game is the graphics. Sometimes I crash because I've started looking at the background instead of the truck! There are a few levels that are tough to get gold on, but still possible. I'd love to see new levels added, but I'm doubtful it will happen. I would like to see it possible to get a boost after landing a flip. Also, customer support was very responsive and helpful when I contacted them about a problem. Recommended!!!
Best monster truck game
I have a monster-truck-obsessed preschooler and I can tell you with authority that THIS is the best monster truck game in the store right now…I find it fun enough to play with him (and psst, sometimes without him). We tried some others and they were all disappointing; this one delivered. I just wish there were more levels. Hope the sequel ports to the Mac OS the way the first one did.
BTW I recommend googling the cheats to unlock the Piggy car and the Formula Racer — kid loves them (he calls the racer the “Batmobile”)
It's very fun and addicting. I got stuck on a few levels, but eventually got past them. A help or tip menu that is more informative then the signs would be more helpful because I found in a few of the really difficult sections that the truck or bus had to be in a certain position, speed, or angle to get past the obstacles. Overall a fun game, but needs room for improvements.
