Controversy!! The game that was too edgy for the App Store. The iOS bottleneck isn't nuts about potentially serious content, and as such rejected the twin brother of this runner from its shelves. Here's the very, very similar sanitized version with one letter changed, Owlchemy Labs' Snuggle Truck. Play 'em both, I say! Which brings you more utils of happiness, saving immigrants or fluffy stuffed bunnies? You'll need an Android device to find out; Smuggle Truck is exclusively available through Google Play.
The flavor of the game isn't morally questionable whatsoever, and the mechanics are strikingly within the realm of the tried-and-true. Drive like a banshee through each level, using the sides of the screen to accelerate/decelerate and tilting to angle straight and true. Obstacles, drop-offs, and flying fuzzies keep each race towards the border fresh. Earn badges for successful transportation of the maximum number of stuffed animals in your truck bed.
A really neat added value of the game: a level creator gives you the tools to easily put together your own challenges, which you can then share with friends and strangers alike. Run through other folks' custom-built levels and watch the fur fly.
The gameplay isn't super new, but it is well-done; controls are precise and graphic/audio is smooth.
Owlchemy Labs' Snuggle Truck is, from this reviewer's humble perspective, a harmlessly fun runner game, neither rocking the boat nor contributing anything revolutionary to the public sphere of gaming thought.
Would you rather be Shocked and Appalled at the subject matter? Head on over to Smuggle Truck (Android only) Are you indifferent to the plight of pixel people, but wish the devs would have taken the opportunity to teach something about our world at large rather than simply tossing babies in the air? Outta luck there, amigo.
