PROS

  • Excellent conversion of the animation's intro.
  • Various powerups for madcap mayhem.
  • Great mix of 16-bit and modern pixel-art.

CONS

  • Beyond a point there's no new content or challenge to explore.

VERDICT

If you never experienced the fun of playing OutRun on an upright cabinet then you'll be missing out on some of what makes 'Truckers Delight: Episode 1' so fantastic, but the endless high-score experience still ranks as one of the most amusing even if it's not the best available.

If you haven't run in to the viral sensation of 'Truckers Delight' then it might help to quickly go watch this hilarious animation first (warning very NSFW). Now that you're back or already know about the amusing tale of Jack and his attempts to pursue the Alpha Chick you'll be prepared for the madness of Mobigame's 'Truckers Delight: Episode 1'.

Much like the start of the animation, Episode 1 takes place on an American desert highway as Jack chases down the Alpha Chick in an endless OutRun-style arcade racer. Steering is handled by tilting and is incredibly accurate, allowing you to zoom through tight squeezes with ease. Various powerups taken directly from the animation are also available and will be needed to make sure you get to the next checkpoint.

It's also no surprise that just like the arcade version of OutRun the graphics are rendered in a 16-bit style. There are plenty of sight-gags to check out and as you progress you'll unlock more obstacles like Bikies who try to kick you off the road and Cops who are ready to pull you over at gunpoint. There are online leader-boards, but there are only basic social features and no achievements to unlock.

'Truckers Delight: Episode 1' is immensely amusing and for the first few runs it's incredibly hard to put down. Unfortunately by remaining faithful to the animation Mobigame have also locked themselves in to a limited amount of available content and without more variation this is a simple (if well presented) high-score game.
