Truck Toss Instructions

If you have played other online and flash-based truck games before, the control scheme of Truck Toss should be a piece of cake to handle for you. Just like other games within the genre, Truck Toss is played entirely with the mouse: (1) Press the up arrow key to move forward and hold it down to accelerate and reach maximum speed. (2) To back off a bit, perhaps to help gain momentum, press and hold down the down cursor key. (3) The left and right arrow keys, on the other hand, are for tilting your truck in either direction... and guess what: you don't really have to be bothered about your truck flipping. Matter of fact, flipping or pulling off a wheelie (with a TRUCK!), whether intended or accidental, bags you points! Anyway, that's about everything you need to keep in mind as far as controls go. Let's have a closer look at the game...

Truck Toss Walkthrough

This is a side-scrolling truck game you shouldn't miss! Nah, it doesn't matter if you are a huge fan of the genre or not. It doesn't matter if you are an avid internet gamer, a casual one, or somewhere in between. You just have to give this game a shot... PERIOD! This has to be one of the best FAST paced toss / distance truck games out there... coming at you with an INCREDIBLE amount of things to do. The game has just one level. BUT what's surprising is that the obstacles you encounter is different from one run to another. You may have a run where you just coast through the whole time... bagging points and Benjamins left, right, and center. On the next run, however, you may find it really hard to make progress with all of the obstacles and road hazards before you.

Just like other distance / toss truck games out there, the objective in Truck Toss is very simple: go as far as you can until your fuel runs out. Bag MORE points by covering more distance. Rinse and repeat until your eyes and hands grow weary. Sounds boring? Well, I can't really blame you. Other distance games out there just plain...well, how am I supposed to put this? They just plain SUCK! But not this one, Truck Toss came with its guns blazing - nice graphics, 37 (!) different achievements, vehicle upgrades, and those are just to name a few.

The Achievements: With 37 different achievements, this is a game that will surely keep you busy for quite some time. And they are pretty varied. Some are something as simple as finding the Achievements List page. Others require you to pull off truck stunts you sure wouldn't try in real life. Have you ever tried grinding your truck's roof (READ: running with your ride's roof!) for about 90 meters or so? What about performing 1200 degree wheelies? If that's not thrilling enough for you, what about catching missiles and bombs 5 times in a row? YES, this truck game is all about doing crazy stuff to bag those precious points and dollars which allow you to beef up your ride.

Power Ups: Along the way, you will encounter different power ups. Some are VERY helpful like the Free Gas (this one should be self explanatory) and Invincibility. The latter allows you to just race across the track without being budged by the rockets, bombs, road hazards, and all sorts of obstacles. Others are nice, BUT could be annoying like the Slow Mo and Low Gravity power ups. They are nice when you launch your truck through a ramp. When you are in mid air, Slow Mo and Low Gravity allows you to just flip your ride as much as you want... which could translate to thousands of points! HOWEVER, when you are in a cross fire, caught between cannons, bombs, etc., these two power ups are more like power downs. Imagine moving slow as a snail and getting bombarded by all sorts of explosives. While you do get points for being hammered, that means you won't cover as much distance and you waste a lot of gas as a result.

The Upgrades: The upgrades, while nice, are not as detailed as in other truck games. Nah, you can't buy new bumpers, wheels, shock absorbers, etc. for your truck in the shop. BUT you can buy new trucks. There are 4 trucks available - and each one is more expensive than the one before it. BUT forking as much as $400,000 is worth it especially when you get a truck that's lightning fast and really light. The final truck, HOWEVER, can't be bought. It can only be unlocked by completing the 37 Achievements. And man, the Moo Truck is simply the best. It's faster and lighter than the rest of the bunch. The only downside is that it flips a lot because of that. BUT no biggie. That means you can pull off wheelies a heck lot easier with the Moo Truck.

The only suggestion I have for this game is to make it a little bit longer. While addicting, there's really not much to do after completing all 37 achievements and giving the Moo Truck a shot or two. Unfortunately, that's the problem with distance / toss games. They don't have much replay value to offer. My suggestion and I hope the developer reads this, is to make the game a bit longer. There are many ways to do this. Maybe he can make the purchasable trucks 2 or 3 times more expensive. Trust me, bagging $400,000 for the next-to-last truck is a piece of cake (I wish things went that way in real life). Or, make the achievements A LOT harder. BUT aside from that caveat, this truck game is gold from top to bottom!
