OVERVIEW
Synopsis
Truck VS Trail brings the true spirit, freedom and sense of adventure of the off-road experience to your mobile device. Build your rig and set out to challenge a variety of trail types and obstacles that will push both vehicles and drivers to their limits.

Rigs
Your Rig, Your Way: There are no pre-built trucks to buy. Start with a base rig and then purchase new parts and accessories to turn it into the ultimate 4x4. The more a rig is modified, the higher its trail rating. Trail ratings allow access to more difficult trails and tougher challenges.

Trails
Challenging Terrain: There are no tracks to guide you and no roads to follow. Whether you are racing from one GPS marker to the next or simply exploring the terrain, where you go and how you get there is up to you. Each environment is completely open allowing you to blaze your own trail.

Preservation
Trail Maintenance: You want new parts? Well, you are going to have to work for it by maintaining existing trails. Every time you do something to help preserve the trail, like collecting trash, you gain resources to purchase new parts and equipment for your vehicle.

FEATURES
Customizable vehicles

40 timed trail challenges

 40+ Achievement trophies

 20+ Treasure hunt items

 5 Unique trail environments

 Fully articulated suspensions

 Multiple play modes

 NO IAPs!

Bought. I like these type of games. I really liked Hondu's truck trials.



One request, screen orientation. Thanks.

So I've downloaded, my very quick impressions. Nice game with a lot of potential. A couple of issues for me though that hinder the experience. 1. Engine noise needs to be louder, at first I didn't realize it was there at all.
2.the game doesn't seem to save changes to the control scheme, I changed to tilt, but when it restarts it defaults back to touch. I don't mind this scheme, but the area of touch sensitivity of the screen needs to be bigger for the steering pad. I find tha it keeps dropping the input cause my finger has moved too much.
3. The buttons in the menus could do with being bigger, particularly in the upgrades section, the writing is tiny...
These are the main ones for me, otherwise so far it's pretty good, I need to play some more though.
Thanks

Thanks for the feedback guys!

Engine Sounds - This is definitely something on the radar.
Control Pref Saving - Already working on this one, it should be ready to roll with the next update.
Larger Steering Slider - Included in the 1.1.2 update (see below)
Upgrades Buttons - These will more than likely be getting an overhaul soon to open up some room for new categories.


Update 1.1.2 was submitted this morning and will include:

Updates

• Updated pause menu to include TRAILS and QUIT buttons

• New steering slider art for traditional control mechanic
• Added support for screen orientation

Bug Fixes & Adjustments
• Fixed bug causing timer display not to zero out when restarting a level
• Increased size of steering slider for better precision and usability
