Give yourself a fun driving lesson in a Barrel Truck game
Sometimes being online at a computer can be a bit stressing. To help you break the monotony, you can choose to play an online game. One of the simplest games you can play is the Barrel Truck game. Forget all the complicated, racing car games where you have to know thing or two about cars; specifics like suspension, gearboxes, and all that jargon related to racing cars. Here is a simple game which tests your driving skills in the simplest way possible, and it is fun to play.
The setting of the game is in a farm. Just like in real life, the roads in a farm are not paved. So you expect to have big boulders of the road, bridges, up hills and down hills, sliding surfaces and the like. The soundtrack of the game is that of country music, with guitars and all.
objective of the game is to pass the driving skills test through the twelve
levels of the game. The game begins with you having a truck, towing two trailers
full of barrels, 20 to be exact. You are supposed to go through the course
within one minute and finish with a minimum number of barrels still intact in
the trailers. There are a few things that are against you as you drive. As
mentioned you should clear the first and subsequent levels, within one minute
per level. Failure to do this, you will have to start the level again. The other
thing is the bumpy road ahead of you. For those who know a thing or two about
trailers, you know that they don't have shock dampers. So any bump you hit, the
barrels move inside the trailer. Again you should be careful not to damage your
truck, by keeping a safe distance between the trailers and the truck. When you
clear one level, you move on to the next until you have completed all the 12
levels. You have to clear one level for you to unlock the next. The beauty about
this challenging game, is that the more levels you unlock, the lesser the
minimum number of barrels you are required to have at the end. So as the road
becomes even bumpier, you just have to be a bit more careful. The creators of
the game know that the challenge is tough, and so you are given 13 lives to
live. Every time you let the trailer hit the truck, you lose a life. But once
you finish, or fail, a level the life levels go back to 13 (not an unlucky
number after all).
You think it is easy, just try and pass the fifth level. I personally can't get past the sixth. I hope this doesn't mean I will have to go back to driving school.
All in all, I think this is a really soothing game to play. It can interest anybody, even a two year old kid can play it. My four year old son loves it so much. The best thing about it is that it is free. You can visit www.gamecr.com/barreltruck.htm and experience for yourself this fun game
