Taiga Car Driver:
This mornings download was mistakenly the one we got back in August, a repeat of the one we got back in February. On my return from the dentist, I said I would recheck, just in case the admin team had replaced the game with the new version; which thankfully they have.

The Game:






Unfortunately I don't have time to give the game a decent going over this afternoon so posting a full review is out of the question at this time as I have other duties this afternoon. Because I have other responsibilities, I don't have the time to give this game a decent going over so that I can write a factual account for this review; however, the short time I've played the game indicates that the game uses the same game mechanic as the first, I can say for sure it's definitely a new version, with some excellent improvements in the game. Some of the menus have been revamped and the initial splash screen that took over 30 seconds to disappear has been scrapped.

I highly recommend you check this one out, especially if you enjoyed the first one. It's basically the same type of game play, where you deliver various items for cash and experience, which can be spent on various upgrades to your vehicle. You've also got to consider your survival because of the extreme cold, picking up food, fuel for a fire etc. There are other tasks to complete, which I've not had time to check out yet, so I'll leave those for you to discover. I've taken a few screen captures, which I'll upload soon and then add them to this comment. Because the game play is basically using the same mechanic, check out my review for the first one, given away on the 14th August 22 them HERE; the descriptions should give you a sense of what to expect with this game.

I've take some of the text from my first review that is applicable to this game and posted it as follows:


The basics of the game are, you pick up various loads to deliver around the Taiga, enter competitions and rescue people to earn XP and cash. Which can then be used to unlock various upgrades for your truck. Because of the adverse weather you have to complete certain tasks to survive in the harsh environments. Cold, thirst and hunger are your worst enemies.

The game includes a 26 page manual explaining what you need to do to survive.

There are three bar indicators in the bottom left of the screen the top one (Red) indicates your hunger, the bottom one (Blue) how cold you are and the the middle one (Green) is your strength, which can be partially recovered by pitching your tent and sleeping. This is accomplished by opening up the inventory by pressing the Right mouse button. Then scrolling to the tent symbol. Doing this will pitch your tent. To enter move to the front of the tent where you'll see a ZZZ indicator in yellow Walk to this and press the left mouse button. This will an indeterminate amount of sleep. You can see time pass outside the tent while you are asleep. This does not restore your strength completely, plus sleep length and hunger are not controlled. To warm your self up you first need to collect wood (the manual suggests finding wood near trees, which guarantees a better supply) to pick up wood, stand near it and a hand should appear, press the enter key to pick up; you can pick up a maximum of five piles of wood. Access the inventory then scroll to the camp fire symbol. If you have no wood, this will be red in colour and cannot be lit, but you can still place the camp fire stones. Other inventory symbols include the phone, which gives you access to your route, the time and temperature as well as important points on the map, which are indicated with different coloured dots, i.e.

Green = Garage
Yellow = Place to take order
Red = Gas/Petrol Station
Sky Blue = Competition ''Climb Way''
Royal Blue = Rescue Mission
Violet = Hotel


Unfortunately the size of the installed game is too large to use the online virus checkers such as Virus Total (unless I paid for the non free version. However, we have been getting games from Falcoware every week since 2018, and I trust them.

Whiterabbit-uk,

The first mission I completed is basically the same as the one I completed in the first game, but with different items to delver. Also, the map is exactly the same. Whether this is just an upgraded version of the first or one with totally new missions I can't say at this time, but from the mission I got, it does seem that the latter is possibly true? Still, the improvements also mean a faster loading time, so hopefully no stuttering on older computers. Also, I had no issues picking up wood, petrol or food; whereas in the first version sometimes I had to move around the object before the hand appeared to be able to pick them up. This seems to have been addressed in the second version.

Whiterabbit-uk, hi .
A few minutes after my message above I've posted another message ... twice
Both times my message had vanished (deleted ?) .
the message was :

"Just noticed that it's a mobile game ( Android 5.0 and above; IOS 9.0 and above ) .
And I ask AGAIN ... why the Team put mobile games in the Windows section ??????"

Can you please tell me what is going on ???
Thank you .

JEDIGEG,

Hi G, I didn't see any other comments from you until the one I'm answering now (less than an hour before the giveaway ends. I always leave a message if I've either deleted or edited someone's comments to let them know why (this is very very rare though); so, if your comment has been removed it must have been one of the administrators or owners of the site. This however, is very unusual, especially as your comment wasn't in anyway spam or negatively biased in some way.

Whiterabbit-uk, that's why I've asked for your help .
I could not understand the reason .
Thank you very much for the quick response and help .

The first giveaway was very much plagued by a severely unplayable framerate as I mentioned in a comment from the previous one. However, the developer seems to have fixed the game and now the graphics options work within the game to reduce the detail level to make the game playable. I actually found the game quite enjoyable to be honest - It can actually compete with some games currently being sold on Steam of the first person / third person variety.

Doesn't seem to be compatible with my Win XP, SP3, 32 bit machine, just as a notice to those still using XP. Thanks, anyway, GGOTD, Falcoware/Ashoot. And thanks Whiterabbit for posting the pertinent info., screenshots, and links.

watcher13, I am not sure if you know or not but I believe there are projects by the open source software community that tricks installers into thinking that XP is supported when launching programs but it can have an adverse affect on your machine.
