Announcing the alpha release of A&R Monster Truck Derby for Android devices. Currently in alpha stages, and therefore not available on the Play Store yet, you will need to download it from my Google Drive (best if done on phone to enable easy install).


(Scan with phone.)

My son loves cars and monster trucks, so one day I decided to make him a game. So on July 31 I started making this game, and less than a week later it is very playable. The easiness to the gameplay is due, in part, to the fact that my son is about 3 and doesn't understand complex games, but this is perfect for him and he loves to play it.

To play you simple touch the screen whenever the title is displayed, then you touch the screen to make the monster truck go to that location. You can drag the monster truck around as well. The goal is to "crush" as many cars as you can in 100 seconds. To crush a car simple have the monster truck drive over it.

0.51 initial alpha release
0.60 Added increasing difficulty levels
0.63 Added Pause and Game Over screen. Also tweaked time gains and losses some.
0.70 Added obstacles! Auto-pausing when you get a call, hit the home or back button, or otherwise somehow hide the game (but don't kill it) works.

Currently supported and testing on Android 2.2.X. Earlier versions may become support if someone is willing to assist with testing.
Note: You will need to enable install from other sources as the apk isn't signed yet.

Bigger update this time. Obstacles have been added. When you hit one the monster truck will be paused momentarily (gets longer the higher the level).

Also added a auto-pause for when you hide the app but don't get it killed (such as home button or receiving a call).
