LordGek's comments:
If a thread for this already exist, excuse me, but I couldn't find it.

This is a very cute and straight forward line drawer from Colorbox with the following simple premise, guide the trucks to their loading bays while avoiding contact with the many nasty tanks out there. The tanks all seem to have highlighted halos around themselves to indicate their weapons' ranges, so try to stay out of their circles of death (fortunately, at least with the initial tanks' machine guns, they won't kill you instantly and you might be able to get back out of their reach before you lose a life).

Also worth noting, the normal sized truck can use any ramp but the BIG TRUCK can only use the map's extra wide ramp(s).

The game, just like Tiny Wings, will give you a number of missions that, if successfully completed, will multiply the base points of all future runs and thus lead to bigger scores (as well as access to other maps).

There is also an iPhone version available (so, no, not universal). I'm not sure if the two are identical except for rescaled graphics or if the iPad folk get slightly bigger maps.

5/5
