Crazy Monster Truck Escape for Mac
Crazy Monster Truck Escape is an entertaining Mac OS X game that should appeal to monster trucks enthusiasts that also enjoy a good race. The colorful design, the fast paced gameplay and the alert soundtrack work together to create a quite engaging experience.
When you launch the game, the Crazy Monster Truck Escape configuration panel enables you to adjust the graphics quality and to decide if you want to play the game in windowed mode: since you cannot adjust the screen resolution and the game window is not resizable, playing in full screen mode is a much better idea.
Once you actually launch the game, you can easily adjust the volume for both the music and the sound effects via the Settings window. The initial panel also includes a link to your personal records.
Note that Crazy Monster Truck Escape comes with a single map enabled: if you want to activate one of the others, you must either reach the performance imposed by the game or carry out in-app purchases.
However, you can choose to drive any of the included monster truck models: Blue Fire, Red Optimus, BullDog, Dragon Sword or Zonker. Once you start a race you must collect power-ups that will help you avoid obstacles, improve your speed, recharge your health and more.
In Crazy Monster Truck Escape you can control your car only via keyboard commands: space bar and the up key to jump, the Shift key enables your shields, the Control key triggers the nitro and the arrow keys allow you to change the direction.
To conclude, Crazy Monster Truck Escape delivers an enjoyable experience by allowing you to race and avoid cops from the comfort of your Mac: the environment might not be very realistic (the helicopters fly through the ground, for example) but the overall effect is quite entertaining.
