View Full Version : Can't finish the last level due to unstable physics
06-25-2010, 07:27 PM
The last level, called Dropper, has a few huge mountains that must be climbed. Seems like an interesting challenge... except because of broken physics.
After a while, the car starts to turn sideways and the wheels move to weird positions... And then the gameplay is ruined. Well, see it by yourself:
It happens every time with the red car.
It happens every now and then with the blue car.
And it "almost" happens with the yellow schoolbus ("almost" because the schoolbus can climb the mountain before this bug gets in the way).

I just finished the game today (bronze medal on the last level).
That last level is a tough one, it took me one day yesterday (not all day)to study its way of functioning.
Basically I ended up knowing all the path perfectly and knowing exactly the points where the truck can go out of line.
First of all I suggest using the blue truck because the red one was useless in this level (at least for me).
There are points that are not visible where the devs put instability of the truck, like if it hit a rock or something, although as I said these points aren't drawn.
You must find them and slow down there while maybe pressing the "lower your truck" key too.
Also I found that lowering you truck while on a slope can change slightly the path you follow left or right.
Basically you can find a rock on your path by pressing "lower your truck" that you won't find if you don't press that key (second slope).
The last slope, which is not the end of the level because what follows is also difficult, you basically need a good speed to start with , then keep pushed the "lower your truck" key all time (that way preventing to go out of line, sideways) and use all "speed ups" completely but be careful at the end of the slope where the truck does a little jump and you must be quick to keep it in the right position after the jump so that when it touches ground again it can grasp the last space left.
I couldn't make the red car to act properly here, due to lack of power on the wheels so i suggest using the blue car for this level as I did (no way I could finish this level with the red car).

What do you mean by "lower your truck"? Pressing the "right arrow" key?

Yes, I personally used "wasd" and the left hand, no mouse, but it is the right arrow key, the one described as "Horizontal (+)" in the input panel at the beginning of the game.
It's a key that lower your front part of the truck when you are in air, it also keeps more easyly the truck in line when on a slope, unless you catch a rock in which case you have to slow down a bit and keep your truck a bit loose by not pressing the right arrow key too much.
Also "speed ups" are actually "nitro".
It's hard for me to describe you exactly how to pass the level being english not my language but I can tell you it can be done (I used the blue truck) although difficult.
If you experience slow downs or little stops in the framerate of the game (that compromise your precision while playing) try lowering the settings to "fastest" as I did.
If you need more help don't hesitate asking...

Don't worry, your English is good enough. Like you, English isn't my native language either. :)
I'll try to remember testing this next time I play this game, but I'm not sure if I will finish the level. It's a bit too annoying and too frustrating. It would be great if you could make a video of this level. ;)

I agree, it's an annoying level.
As for the video I don't have the means to do one right now but I will think about it.
Although there are supposed to be unlocks in this game, nothing happened to my game when I finished the level, so it doesn't really matter in that way.
I also read in another thread that this game probably has installation limits so be careful with that.

Ok, I watched your video (my youtube page is not working properly at the moment so I admit I couldn't before).
Don't know if you are still interested in the game but anyway I give you the way I personally passed the first slope.
1 - use the blue truck
2 - little after the slope has begun start keeping the right arrow key down and use the first nitro, 'till you reach the second nitro.
3 - at that point DON'T use the second nitro immediately because there is a hidden rock in the ground right after it.
Instead, maybe release the right arrow key for a little while, you can also try to slow down a bit, 'till you see the car making a little twist (that's the rock on the ground)
4 - after that press the right arrow key again and keep it pressed and use the nitro you have in store to make the last part of the slope 'till the edge.

Okay, your strategy works! However, now I can't get past the Piggy Ride part fast enough. I can't do the second jump long enough in order to land on top of the buses.

Finally I got it! This video helped me to see how to pass that Piggy Ride section: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3dm6i-lClDA

Happy to know you made it!
I personally enjoyed this game.
