"If you’re not into racing and you’d rather enjoy casual rides while enjoying the scenery and delivering cargo, don’t worry! Truck Driver® is the game for you.”

2.      Haul all kinds of cargo

If you’re not into racing and you’d rather enjoy casual rides while enjoying the scenery and delivering cargo, don’t worry! Truck Driver® is the game for you. In Truck Driver, you drive through the countryside and urban environments while transporting all kinds of cargo. There are seven different characters for which you can complete jobs. The more missions you complete, the more they’ll trust you with other jobs. There are over 50 story missions in the game and an endless supply of repeatable missions. To start off a mission, you will first need to hook the trailer that’s loaded with the cargo onto your truck. The client will then give you the GPS details. Via your stat navigation, you will deliver the cargo to the correct location. Sometimes you need to finish the job within a certain amount of time. Along the way, you will also need to pay attention to several other details. To avoid trouble, it’s important to stay fueled up, get enough rest and comply with the traffic rules. Once you arrive at the right destination, you can park your truck and drop of the cargo. This means your mission is now complete. 

Completing missions means earning money, which allows you to buy new trucks and customize the ones you have. Customization takes place in the garage, where you can change the looks of your truck, buy new trucks or add new parts that help with specific kind of jobs. There are many options that affect the stats of your truck. The state of your truck will have an effect on the stats as well, so it is important to visit the garage if you’ve had an accident. Another way to increase the stats of your truck is through skills and passives, which you can unlock by acquiring more experience. These skills and passives will result in improvements and benefits such as longer stamina, longer durability of parts or discounts on truck repair.

But this time, there’ll be another monster waiting for you!

In Monstrum, there are three terrifying monsters who will hunt their pray and you only have one chance to survive. Permadeath and no save points means that once you get killed, you will have to start all over again from scratch. The procedurally generated ship not only ensures you stay lost in the labyrinth of rooms, pathways, and items that change with each new game, but it also randomizes the monster hunting you! You’re left completely defenceless against these prowling beasts, so in order to survive, you will have to distract, hide or slow the creature down before running for your life! Monstrum is available on Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One. Will you be able to survive?
