If you like riding trucks, loading cargo, food and gas once in a while, this is your game! Actually it's like an educational game, but with a simulation feel. So, what is this game all about?
You (the driver) drive a truck around Canada, loading and delivering cargo. But, as a normal truck, you can get flat tires, accidents, or run out of gas. So you have to think about shortcuts, ways to sleep less (or more, it's your choice) before going to the next city, where you have to think again. All by typing commands and stuff like "turn on truck", "eat", "get gas" and more... As players travel between the cities, they learn valuable skills such as problem solving, map reading, and decision making.
What caught my attention in this one is that you can take turns with another player on the same PC; I didn't try it but it can be good if you are going to play with a friend... or foe.
Anyway, it's like a text adventure game, but with more graphics. For CGA, good-looking ones.
The game tends to be difficult without these: the command lines. Check the Extras section for them.
Just type at the prompt "CCAN" and press Enter.
Dear Abandonia visitors: We are a small team that runs one of the largest DOS Games websites in the world. We have only 3 members of staff, but serve 450,000 users and have outgoing costs like any other top site for example: our servers, power, rent, programs, and staff. Abandonia is something special. It is a library of old games for you to download. It is like an old gaming arcade with all the old games in their original format. Abandonia is a place where you can find great old games and have fun four hours and years. To protect our independence, we are dependent of our friends using the site. We run on donations averaging around 6 USD (5 Euro). If everyone reading this gave the price of a cup of coffee, our fundraiser would be made easier. If Abandonia is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online for another year. Please help us forget fundraising and get back to Abandonia.
