The review mentions a list of commands being present in the Extras section, but there's nothing there. Any chance of it being added? Might be helpful for first time players.

Apparently no such extra was submitted in the first place, but we could ask the contributor...

1. Introduction
-------------------

Cross Country Canada was a PC game released back in 1991 for elementary
schools all across Canada. You could say it's a Canadian version of
Oregon Trail, but instead of pioneers, you are a truck driver picking
up commodities across Canada and dropping them off at one of the 80
cities in this game.

4. The FAQs
--------------

1. Do I have a certain time/money limit?

Nope. You can spend all you want and go wherever you please. You may
get a bonus commodity that may give you $300 off your gas bill, or
something similar.

2. HEY! THAT HITCHHIKER STOLE MY COMMODITY!

Yeah, when you pick up a hitchhiker, there are three outcomes:

1. He waves as you drop him off (common)
2. He waves and gives you a $100 tip (rare)
3. He steals your commodity at knifepoint. (semi-common)

Outcome #3 is all the more amusing if you have customized your
commodity names to illegal substances.

3. You can customize commodities?

Yes, but you can only name 4 of them (the rest are still default), and
you have to use the file called "AUTHOR.EXE" to do it. Then you can
pick which cities to put them in. For example, I used commodity table 0
as a base, named the four custom commodities, and then added the custom
commodities to cities that don't normally have commodities. (I had
Crack in Moncton...lmao. It's funny to type "get crack" and see a box
loading into the back of the truck. But don't take my word for it...)

4. Why do I get into so many accidents?

Well, is your guy hungry? Tired? Speeding? All three? Try and keep your
guy's health up and the truck speed down, and you shouldn't have any
problems with accidents.
