    ...........................................Moderator comment...................................

    There is a demo available for this gameHERE. Please only post comments about today's game giveaway; other comments either not appropriate, or not about the game will be deleted at the moderator or administrators discretion; however a little light banter among community members and with the moderator to keep this a friendly place to visit will be allowed, and will be judged by the moderator as to whether it is suitable or not to be left.
    I am posting this in light of the massive increase in negative comments not related to the game being given away, inappropriate comments and spam (Almost 700 spam comments were posted in one day a few weeks ago ) that have occurred over the past several months since the site was updated and in particular since the site started to give away games from the Steam world and since they started using Facebook.
    I truly believe that if we get lots of decent feedback about the games we get here, more developers will be happy to give away their games. Seeing lots of complaints (and spam) instead of feedback about the game given away will not persuade other developers to give their games away for free. So please bear this in mind when posting your comments. Any comment not about the game for example complaints, or if deemed unfriendly or inappropriate, will be deleted or added to the spam folder, which automatically black lists the IP address you used. Although I have enjoyed responding to many of those comments, I will no longer waste my time answering comments from community members who should have read the moderation policy.
    Negative feedback about the games given away are always welcomed because they can also be very constructive for developers, however, complaining about the way the site is operating or problems about downloading or installing the games should be directed to the giveawayoftheday contact form which I've linked to HERE; alternatively, if the problem is game related and it is late in the day (I can't moderate 24 hours a day), please also post your issue in the forums where you may get a response from the community. Often, such problems are related to your computers set up. i.e. your security may block the installation (for example quite a few game giveaways I've installed have been blocked by my copy of Zemana Anti-malware suite) Also please read the moderation policy which can be found HERE and if you do have a problem please check the FAQ's thread HERE. Thank you.



    Try Hard Parking



    In Brief

    The developer (a lone wolf developer) said this is the hardest and most rage inducing Parking Game in The World. Try Hard Parking takes the classic marble game style requirements of timing and balance then replaces the marble with a vehicle and a hazardous excuse for a city. Excellent, especially for the price. Nice one

    Suggestions:

    If you win a key for Try Hard Parking please give some feedback next week (when the keys are awarded and you've had some time to play) about your opinion of the game, for example, what you liked or disliked about it, or how it could be improved from your point of view . If you don't like this genre at all, please explain why. What, improvements, if any, would change your opinion? There are thousands of subscribers to the game giveaway of the day every weekend which makes this an ideal forum for giving developers ideas as to what their consumers (i.e you) would like to see in a game. For example, you could suggest extra content such as better or more original mini games, or a level editor that you would like to see that would make it more appealing to you. Maybe you think the graphics are a little dated and are in need of re skinning, or maybe you've just had enough of the genre and want to see something different or something with more originality?

    If you don't win a key, don't mind playing games via Steam or miss the offer totally you can get the game 24/7 via Steam HERE. It usually costs £1.59/$1.99,




    Introduction:

    Tempt fate & physics as you navigate obstacle courses in pursuit of your holy parking spot in this 80s retro environment in Try Hard Parking! . Put your driving skills to the test in this retro styled game as you jump,drop and carefully steer across levels full of obstacle to reach your holy parking lot. This is not your typical parking game. We have so many driving games these days that they are proud of their driving skills. Do a good time and throw the controller to a friend and see all his driving skills diminish.

    Installation:

    Assuming you win a Steam key for Try Hard Parking once you've found it (should be sent to the email you used to enter the giveaway - it must be the email you first used to sign into the game giveaway site. If you’ve used a throwaway email there may be problems getting a key, because the key may be sent to that email. If you have any problems use the contact form. Hopefully the giveaway team will repost the information they posted several weeks qgo explaining the email situation. ) you have to activate the game via your Steam client. Once activated it will be permanently tied to your Steam profile and you'll be able to install the game at any time, anywhere on any computer, so long as you can validate who you are (usually via emails etc.). If you don't have a Steam account you will first have to download and install the Steam client HERE



    Then create a Steam profile/account. Once that has been completed you can input the Steam code that you've received (after completing the form filling) via the game button along the top of the Steam client, (located between friends and Help - see image below). From the drop down menu select 'Activate a product on Steam'. This opens a product activation window. Just follow the prompts to complete activation. Once the Steam code has been accepted, the game will be permanently associated with your Steam account and can be installed any time you wish.


    If you have a problem installing or activating or getting Try Hard Parking to work, please visit the problems section over in the Game Discussion forums, which I've now incorporated into the FAQ's thread, and which you can find HERE

    The Game:


    Features:

    1) ... 10 Unique Crazy Levels with Different Vehicles ranging from 80s known Cars to A-Team's Van.

    2) ... Difficult, Fun, Fast, Frustrating and Rage Inducing Gameplay with great music to keep your cool.

    3) ... Game Trophies such as "Grand ma" for slowest and "Takumi 86" for Fastest or "Super Tuber" for extreme players.

    4) ... Some Trophies can only be achieved within a limited amount of tries after that its gone (Consequence filled Score Resetting, which makes you lose all your best times)

    5) ... Steam Achievements with some levels with hidden achievement. (Do "Trial 1" in under 45 seconds and 5 Tries, to get a cool achievement)



    How to Play:



    Hit "ENTER" or "Start" on Xbox360 Controller to Quickly Reset if your vehicle is stuck(which will be a lot of times). It resets the timer too, but keeps the number of tries.

    Use pulses of Acceleration: Don't Go full throttle , use short bursts of speed.

    Use Handbrake turns in tight corners: Use brakes and handbrakes, rear wheel slides to get the car in to position. This helps to keep the vehicle in control

    Keep wheels in contact : Try to be keep your wheels in contact for traction. Watching the tires instrad of the entire car may improve the sense of direction and control

    Don't get stuck : The car gets stuck easily on corners & ledges, so it requires a bit of precision to drive.

    Navigation on Level Screen - Click on the arrows on the level selection screen to move around different Level Grids.- Mouse over Blocks too see Trophies (some are achievements).

    You can reset (enter or the Start button in controller) to the start at any point in your progress

    originally posted by Alex Avard
    Try Hard Parking is unlikely to be a cakewalk for anyone, even the most experienced drivers. One-man developer, Sayem Chaklader is looking to seriously test your patience, humility and hand-eye coordination with his first official Steam title and the experience may even justify a rage quit every now and again, albeit one which doesn’t end up with anything getting damaged (safety first, people).

    Tasked with navigating a car through a series of increasinly difficult obstacle courses, it’s more than likely that the number of retries you’ll need to complete each level will extend well into the double digits, and likely even go beyond into the hundreds. Luckily, the game features a hotkey which instantly resets the car to its starting position, encouraging a quick-fire rinse and repeat playstyle which suits the trial and error approach to mastering each course.

    At first, it may feel as though the small assortment of selectable cars in Try Hard Parking feel awkward to navigate. While this does ring true for a few of the micro-interactions; for example there's a slight delay between pressing the accelerate button and seeing it occur in-game. It becomes clear that this seemingly apparent awkwardness is instead a control scheme that begs to be learned, practiced and mastered.

    The highly precise turning mechanics provide a fine balance to make up for what the acceleration lacks in sensitivity, establishing a system of traversal which requires patient caution and thoughtful oversight. Every single touch of a button must be strategically considered before acted upon, as the decision to press one even in the slightest can represent the difference between gratifying success and total wipe-out.

    Sometimes, after failing to overcome the first hurdle of a particular level following an hour of endless attempts, it can feel as though you’ve hit a brick wall, but it is only through this dogged, repeated practice where Try Hard Parking really gets to shine. That motivation to conquer each environmental hurdle creates an addictive gameplay loop, and the familiar instinct of “one more go” can quickly take hold of your entire attention span before you even realize it.

    Theres an 80’s retro aesthetic that 'Try Hard Parking’s' visuals are steeped in, particularly the fact that game looks as though it is being played on a cassette tape of an old television. It’s a good thing this stylistic effect is on display too, since it acts as a handy filter to gloss over the otherwise low-grade models and textures, which are perhaps the game’s weakest assets. The soundtrack provides the perfect musical backdrop to try and keep you calm and composed as you navigate the potentially aggravating challenges that are set before you.

    It’s worth stressing that those who suffer from road rage may want to avoid Try Hard Parking, but for those who can muster the resolve, there’s a surprising amount of depth to be found in this tricky isometric driving game.

    Try Hard Parking 014


    Conclusion:
    With intuative controls as well as a choice of keyboard or XBox controller you'd expect this to be relatively easy, but controls are very sensitive. It took me ages to complete the first level. I won't admit to how many tries I took, lol. I love the retro graphics, the simple layout. Reminds me of those physics based motorcycle games where you have to navigate various obstacles. Well worth going for this one if you like a challenge. Very addictive. 8 out of 10. If you enjoyed playing this you'll probably also like theAndroid game Car Driver 3 (or Car Driver 2) or the flash game Red Driver 3. You can find loads more .






    I'd like to take this opportunity to thank the developer Sayem Chaklader (Gearspecs) for giving away 100 keys for this physics based parking simulator and also to the game giveaway team, as always, for securing other ways to get free games, in this case a Steam key.





    Useful Information not related to today's game giveaway:

    The problems section that used to be posted here in the Game review is now included in the Game Discussion FAQ's thread; which you can find HERE.

    I've updated the games section that used to be posted with the review. The thread is now called 'Weekly round up of game deals', formerly the games section of the weekly reviews. You can find the new thread (which I've posted in the sticky section of the game discussion forums to make it easier to find if you are perusing the game discussion forums) HERE.




    If Turtix didn't appeal, you may find other games either free or for less than the price of a cup of coffee via the 'Weekly Roundup of Game Deals' thread which I've posted a link to above, or HERE.
    .
    The free game over on Origin is still the excellent atmospheric Sci Fi RPG third person Shooter Mass Effect 2, but it will be ending soon. If you've still not got a copy, get it now, it's well worth. It usually costs £19.99/$19.99 (though I paid the pre order price of over £30 prior to it's release back in January 2010) . You can get it HERE. Please note that you do require the Origin game platform to be able to download and install the game.

    You will also find lots of deals over on Green Man Gaming and Big Fish Games usually have 70% off the first game you buy from them, plus they also have other deals occasionally. Desura was purchased from Bad Ju Ju games last year by One Play. If you already have a Desura account you can read details of what is happening HERE. As yet you can't access games you previosly purchased via Desura (I have around 1400), but One Play are working to recover everyones accounts and hope to do so by the end of March 2017. Indie Royale will also resume on a weekly basis, though at this time I don't know if previous Inde Royale Greenlight bundles will be honoured? Alawar, Gamehouse and Playrix entertainment have free games available (usually online versions) and other game houses such as the AAA distributors Ubisoft and Origin always have some games on sale. I've updated the Weekly roundup of game deals HERE to include a large list of other sites where you can find games on sale ( eg Origin, uPlay, GreenManGaming etc, as well as links to free online games as well as other game houses such as Alawar, Playrix and Gamehouse plus gaming news sites such as Rock Paper Shotgun and Game Seek, and included a list of free to play Massive Multiplayer games such as World of Tanks, world of warships, Liberators and Allegiance to name a few. For more details please go to the Weekly roundup of game deals over in the game discussion sticky section HERE.<.blockquote>


    There are 878 games on sale over on Steam at the moment, with up to 91% off. Game prices range from as little as £0.15p (Splatter: Zombie apocalypse, Airscape - The Fall of Gravity, Clones, See No Evil and Rolling Sun all with 91% off, and there are almost 200 games and dlc less than $1 and almost 300 less than £1. You can find all of the deals HERE.
    Also for this weekend only you can play Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6: Siege that was released just over a year ago on Steam totally for free until 8pm Sunday evening (GMT). You get access to the full game HERE.

    Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege invites players to master the art of destruction. Intense close quarters confrontations, high lethality, tactics, team play, and explosive action are at the center of the experience. The gameplay sets a new bar for intense firefights and expert strategy in the rich legacy of past Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six games

    Key Features include siege gameplay; where enemies now have the means to transform their environments into strongholds: they can trap, fortify, and create defensive systems to prevent breach by Rainbow teams. Counter terrorist units; (“short range” specialists, where training is concentrated on indoor environments. Operating in tight formations, they are experts of close quarter combat, demolition, and coordinated assaults plus hostage rescue). You also are able to destroy parts of the environment i.e. procedural destruction; where everything in the environment reacts realistically, dynamically, and uniquely based on the size and caliber of bullets you are using or the amount of explosives you have set. If you like First person shooters and/or team based game play (both in single player and multiplayer), I highly recommend you try this game. I played this game last year and found it extremely satisfying.


    If you spend more than $3 in the Indie Gala store you'll also get a free copy of the atmospheric point and click horror adventure game 'Between Me and the Night' worth $14.99/£9.99. There's also a sale on over on the Humble Bundle site featuring Telltale games (The walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Back to the future, Jurassic ParkPuzzle /agent 1 and 2 etc), plus lads more games on sale. If you subscribe to the Humble Monthly, which costs $12 a month you not only get a large collection of decent Steam games you will also get for the first month of the subscription total war: Warhammer, which was released last Spring and costs $59.99/£39.99. The great thing is, you can cancel at any time, so only need to receive the first bundle of games. I personally haven't bothered, but only becasue I usually have already purchased most of the games included in the monthly bundle. The usual savings on the games you get are around 90%, not counting the introductory offer. There's also lots of games on sale over on the Bundle Stars and Indie Game Stand (IGS)




    stores.

    ...........................................FREE game offer in exchange for quality feedback...................................

    I've posted a list of over 100 Steam games in the forums HERE, some of which I will giving away each week to those community members who post decent feedback for the game given away that day. It is quite an extensive list of games taken from the 10 000+ Steam keys I've collected over the last several years; all were either purchased by me, or received free for pre-ordering games on Steam, plus a few from entering competitions and other offers). There will be a limited number of other keys available, such as Origin, uPlay and Desura keys (Desura has recently been purchased following the original owners demise and should be up and running by the end of March). I will announce the winner's from the giveaway the following week. If no announcement is made, it means no one posted feedback that qualified for a free game that week. If you have won a game, I will post details in the thread I've created specifically for that purpose HERE. Once I've given a key away, the game and any comments by the winner will be removed from the list.


    Depending on the quality of the feedback, I may choose to award games to more community members for each game given away, 'at my discretion'. The feedback must be about the game, and it must include a couple of paragraphs of feedback following the guidelines I've posted in the suggestions section of my review. i.e. your opinion of the game, what you liked and/or disliked plus suggestions for improvement. If you choose a game that is very cheap I may give you a second game; so, when choosing from the list I provide, please list more than one choice. If a game is chosen by more than one community member and only one key is available the key will go to the one I deem the most useful. I do have multiple keys for quite a lot of the games I've listed, so, don't be put off if you see someone else has chosen the game you want. I haven't indicated any of the games I have multiple keys for (though for example I do have several keys for the excellent Western themed AAA game Call of Juarez, which i picked up for free for purchasing several games via the Indie Gala store several months ago. spending a few dollars got me a copy of the game, so I made several separate purchases over a couple of days while the offer was still live.
    I do own at least three community members a game from the previous giveaways that I posted several months ago. I'd totally forgotten about those. I do have a document with their names on, so they will get a game from the original list when I find the document (I'm extremely disorganized); or they can peruse the new list and choose something different. Just post a comment over in the forums in the appropriate thread. If you do post feedback with a view to getting one of the games and think you have covered the requirements, you don't have to do anything until I announce the winners the following week.
    Please remember, this comments section is mainly for feedback about today's game giveaway. If you're not sure, read the moderation policy, which you can see HERE

    Mais sorte da próxima vez. Infelizmente, muitos mais membros da comunidade estão agora entrando nessas competições, especialmente agora que a comunidade Steam está mais consciente dos brindes. Cerca de doze a quatorze milhões de membros da comunidade Steam estão on-line em qualquer ponto durante o fim de semana. Muitos dos grupos e sites do Giveaway do Steam agora anunciam esses brindes quase assim que eles vão ao vivo.

    I really wanted to give this one a try because it looks like a fun game, kinda looks like a spin off of the classic game Marble Madness only with cars.

    The reason I am not joining the giveaway is for one thing I don't have a Facebook account, and although I do have a Twitter account, rather than tweeting a tweet when you select "Tweet" a page opens up wanting you to authorize GOTD Competition to "USE MY ACCOUNT". And by that I mean it says :

    This application will be able to:
    Read Tweets from your timeline.
    See who you follow, and follow new people.
    Update your profile.
    Post Tweets for you.

    The main page of GOTD says "Game giveaway of the day" and "Proceed to download page". But it doesn't seem to be either, it seems to be a competition, and one that's finished as well!

    ...........................................Moderator comment...................................


    Try Hard Parking was a giveaway from last week, and ran until this morning at 8am this morning (UK time). It was limited to 100 licenses. The winners were announced shortly after the giveaway ended.

    I don't see any purpose in giving anyone other than me access to my account and the ability to Update MY PROFILE or POST TWEETS FOR ME.

    If it was just a simple tweet, I'd be all for that. I wonder how many people actually took the time to read the pop up window when you select the Twitter function.

    Thanks, but no thanks.

    John, I just ask for the link to be sent to my email. Then I use the link, no need to use FB or Twitter.

    Reply   |   Comment by andrea  –  7 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

    andrea, Odd that you say all you ask for is a tweet, because you OBVIOUSLY did not. I would suggest people using Twitter check their permissions. Like the old saying goes : "If it's too good to be true, then it probably is not true". I checked out your Twitter option several times, NOT JUST ONCE.

    Either way, those ARE NOT MY OPINIONS, those are FACTS.

    Like I said before THANKS, BUT NO THANKS, the only giveaway is someone giving away access to their Twitter Account depending on the person they are giving away the permissions to.

    As for your GOTD Installer, I don't trust that either. But I will get back to that at a later date.

    Like I said, THANKS, BUT NO THANKS.


    ...........................................Moderator comment...................................


    Hi John, would be interesting to hear why you don't trust the giveaway installer? Literally millions of games have been installed using the giveaway installers over the 10 years since the project started and there has never been a confirmed case of a game installing malware. The problem with the latest installer as you are probably aware of is the Themida wrapper, that was added to stop certain members of the community ripping off the executable, which once ripped could be installed at any time on any computer. Some community members even went as far as uploading the unprotected executable to peer to peer sites, where some of those games are probably still available. Also some sought 'likes' on their You Tube accounts (and elsewhere) by uploading videos of how to do rip the giveaway and/or posted written details of how to do it on various gaming sites and blogs. Developers were not happy about this as it meant their games were basically easily accessible at any time instead of the limited 24 hour period to anyone who didn't mind stealing them; so the giveaway team incorporated a Themida based wrapper to protect the executable from hacking. That has caused many community members to experience problems with installing giveaways, usually due to oversensitive security, but all have been solvable either by white-listing the giveaway installer with your anti malware suite, installing the game in safe mode or temporarily turning off your security.
    As I've said many times, the game giveaway site has been operating for over a decade now, with games being available most weekends and for over a year (between December 2006 to April 2008) every day apart from a couple of weekends when they needed to update the site).
