I'll post some feedback and images once I've had chance to play and possibly compare it with Taiga Car Driver 2, which I decided to keep.

In Brief:
Yeah! Another Taiga car driver. The previous version given away last month on the 5th of September was an improvement on the original given away back in February and August this year.

After comparing Taiga Car Driver 2 with the video, I've linked to below; I found the mission map is exactly the same in both games (and the same as the original release) plus the mission being completed in the video I've linked to below of this latest game is exactly the same as one of the missions I completed in Taiga Car Driver 2; so, I'm assuming this latest version is more an update on last month's version rather than a completely new game.

Please see my additional comment below this one, thank you.. :)

You can see a video of game play HERE.



The Game:

I highly recommend you check this one out, especially if you enjoyed the two previously given away. It's basically the same game with some minor adjustments to the game, removing some of the upgrades that to be honest seemed pointless anyway. The game involves you delivering various items for cash and experience, which can be spent on various upgrades and paint jobs 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'll leave those for you to discover. Because the game play is basically using the same mechanic, as the two previous giveaways, I've reposted the applicable part of my last review below. Hopefully the descriptions should give you a sense of what to expect with this game.

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 yourself 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 campfire symbol. If you have no wood, this will be red in colour and cannot be lit, but you can still place the campfire 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

Notes on Security
Unfortunately, the installed game is almost 1 GB in size, so is too large to upload to Virus Total for a scan.

Whiterabbit-uk,

Apart from a few minor changes with some of the menus, for example in the garage upgrade section a few of the changes such as the rear and front protection and the trunk have been removed. So, from the limited game play I've had so far this appears to be just an upgraded version of the last two versions we were given.

I've reposted the applicable parts of my last review with some editing to take account of the small changes from the previous versions. Once I've completed a few missions and taken some more screen captures I may add more information if it adds anything extra to the review. I have another dental appointment mid-morning to continue with the root canal treatment started two weeks ago. So, any additional information may be late coming.

Overall, a thumbs up from me.

Like Taiga 2, won't work on my Win XP, SP3, 32 bit (didn't try the original Taiga).

On other thing, I did find a virus scanner that could handle large files, up to 1GB. Called Internxt. It's from a cloud storage company which touts it's privacy, so I assume it's the companies in house anti-virus scanner. No tests of it's effectiveness I could find, so it could be good, adequate, mediocre or worthless. No problems reported, anyway. Just to make sure we're on the same page, WR, I'm sure you realize that all of the scanners can test the setup file, or even unpack the zip. I submitted the setup executable. I just mentioned because you mentioned the installed size is nearly 1GB. And, your right, of course, all the other online scanners accept files larger than, I think, 260 MB, so they wouldn't have accepted this setup or zip, either. So, Internxt may be of no help at all, but I thought I'd let you know, just in case.

watcher13,

Thanks for the heads-up, I'll check it out to see if it agrees with Virus Total. If the results marry up regularly, I'll consider using it for files over 650 to 1GB :)

I checked a game we will be getting next Monday, Virus Total found 1 hit (Dr Web), the Internxt scanner found zero hits. This was the zipped executable we usually download from the giveaway project. I then installed then tested it again, this time, both scanners gave a thumbs up. It's one you may like, judging by your last but one comment you made earlier today.

;)

Although this was given away 3 times in such a short time this year, the first one I was not able to play due to the framerate issues the game had. The graphics options screen did not work.

The second build of this that was given away was vastly improved and the options worked properly, I was actually able to play this game.

I've not tested this build yet but I am going to assume that this version also improves on the playability of the second build given away. There are some developers that will build a major game and charge for major upgrades to the game and so forth.

It's an indie game so I am not expecting that here.

Hopefully, this version will go past a few deliveries. The last one was fine, but eventually you got to a point where it refused to unload your cargo, no matter how many times you delivered it. The game could be improved by improving the steering. When you press to go left or right, it is full on or full off, and it can jerk the cargo around. If you could use a different key pair that would only give a half Left/Right in addition to the original, it would improve the game.
