They're fun when done right, it's just unfortunate that a lot of them aren't.

I'm hoping this will support iPad retina and have a good amount of content, and of course, acceptable controls.

Yea very true. This one looks like it will be difficult to play in a way. Just because its 3D looking. Hoping the controls are top notch.
Would be neat to have a game like this that has a story to it or just like having to call in and try to get the highest bid to deliver something to some place. Makes you have to park perfectly .

Kind of like the show, bidding wars

Default Gameplay Trailer

Hi all,
Thanks Sanuku for posting the thread
Any chance you can add this gameplay trailer to the first post as well?



We've worked hard on the controls, and sure you'll find settings that you like.
I find you can get most consistent control with digital buttons, with sensitivity turned down a bit - but we're open to suggestions for tweaks which we can test out and get into a future update.

This is my first released game, after finding myself lucky enough to get into the industry, so I'm really excited right now and hope you guys like it! We have a load more exciting projects in development, but Trucker is the first out of the gate!

I'm working with a very experienced studio, so we hope you'll find the quality higher than "my first app" suggests! I've been a regular reader and member here at TA since 2009 (I'm Baracus) so it's a really weird feeling to be here posting about my own game finally!

In terms of content, you get 1 vehicle (Oil Tanker Truck) and 36 levels for free - it gets pretty challenging, especially if you are going for the top scores! You also get the free drive map, with any vehicles you have unlocked.

If you enjoy the game, you can buy IAP for an extra truck (the Armoured Monster Truck) which makes the levels a fair bit harder due to the length of the truck, and you can buy a "kids mode" to make it easier (shorter truck)
Any purchase will also remove the ads. (Oh and you can unlock all levels if you get totally stuck and want to move forwards!)

I look forward to any comments
All the best,
Mark

No pressure then

Yea we got retina visual of course!
Thankfully you can't go 150mph in these Trucks, so it's all smooth as silk

Default 24 hours

Well it's been a bit of a whirlwind 24 hours for Trucker!

I can hardly take it in, but we have already passed 40,000 downloads and in the top 10 racing games in over 30 countries!

We've got over 10 thousand players competing in GameCenter, and there are some really good close scores at the top end already.

Here's some of the very early reviews we've received from around the World…

"Fun driving app that continues to bring me back for more!
One of those games that you sink minutes into without realising, really addictive." (Munkez)

"Great game, hard but fair" (from China)

and from our beta testers: "As a betatester of this fantastic game I must say:
YEAAHA!!! Everyone must download it for its gorgeous graphics and its fantastic truck handling, and overall for its great enjoyable gameplay!!!" (Truncana)

"But dang, this is a really cool game, I haven't seen a game like this before, but it plays great and looks great. " (PocketNova)

We've taken some early feedback and pushing out an update asap. We've already reduced the frequency of ads but an update will hit soon with:-
- Increase height of in-cab camera
- Some UI polishing
- Some level tweaks

...and anything else you guys suggest that we can fit in!

I'd love to hear what you think of it

Yep it's a nice surprise. Been playing this a lot and will probably pay to get rid of the ads and unlock some extra features

Really like it. It's great when you pass level 10 you can print out a license to drive a truck legally on the roads due to the training

This sounds crazy but I've been hoping someone would develop a truck driving/parking aim for iOS - thanks for fulfulling that wish! The game is fantastic. Some requests:

iCade and iCade 8-bitty support would be fantastic (please change the button configurations based on which one is used if you do so!)

I gladly purchased the monster truck and removed ads for $2.99 but was a little disappointed the kids mode is an extra $2.99 - any chance of combining the 2 or making kids mode free?

Thanks again for the great game - definitely fills a niche that was missing on iOS!
