  • Summary: ClusterTruck is a chaotic physics based truckformer. Jump your way through insane levels in a game of "the floor is lava" on top of speeding trucks driven by terrible drivers. The game only gets harder when dangers such as swinging hammers, lasers and flamethrowers are added.

    Few games have been as effective as Clustertruck at making me want “just one more try”. It’s bizarre, wacky, skill intensive, tough as hell, and you could end up needing a new controller or two before you’re through.

    Above all else, Clustertruck is simply a fun game to play. Producing many laugh-out-loud moments thanks to its goofy concept, and plenty of satisfying, fast-paced platforming, Clustertruck is a trucking good time despite a couple moments of frustration.

    Despite its short run and lack of replayability, Clustertruck is a fun little title for the Nintendo Switch. The simple gameplay allows for some truly hectic moments, while varied level design keeps the action interesting from beginning to end.

    Clustertruck debuts on Switch retaining the "pure platform" vibe from the PC version, with the core mechanics working like a charm in portable mode. The "jump over trucks" seems silly at first, but all the variations make it interesting till the end. It's a shame that, as in other console versions, the leaderboards and level editor are missing.

    Clustertruck is a simple idea but a really entertaining one. What it lacks in depth or missing features, it makes up for in sheer laughter – every attempted run a mash-up of drunkenly driven trucks, unexpected situations and death-defying risks. Snappy, exciting and sometimes frustrating, Clustertruck is a welcome addition to the eShop library and has me eager to see what publisher TinyBuild has in store for Switch owners next.

    Clustertruck may be fun for short periods of time, but it's also hard and unforgivable and eventually that can grind you down.

    There is not much to Clustertruck, yet for a game with that kind of title, it is far more enjoyable than it would suggest. This is a silly, arcade-style guilty pleasure that manages to delivers a satisfying laugh and not much else. There is not much substance here, but there is enough that does put it above most Youtube-bait schlock, since it does have a thoughtful rising challenge and unlockable abilities that can offset the unpredictability of the physics engine.

You hop from truck to truck and avoidClustertruck is a silly, unique platformer made by the geniuses of Landfall Games. The game is simple. You hop from truck to truck and avoid obstacles until you get to the end of the level. This game can get challenging but in a fun way. Every level feels unique and creative. One level, you're hopping from truck to truck during a rockslide. Another level, you'll be hopping truck-to-truck to avoid a magma monster. This game's graphics are really simple but charming. I love the bright color palette and smooth textures. In conclusion, this is a fun little parkour game worth trying if you'd like a good challenge. Have a lovely day/night, folks! Expand

    The game has crashed on me a number of times, and it freezes completely if I die or reach the end of the level after level 8:4. I have otherThe game has crashed on me a number of times, and it freezes completely if I die or reach the end of the level after level 8:4. I have other complaints about the game (like the unconfigurable controls), but they all pale in comparison to the fact that the game is simply not playable beyond a certain point. I would recommend not wasting your money on this crappy port.

    Update: the 1.0.1 patch that was just released fixes the crashing issues, so I'm updating my score to 6. If they patch in customizable controls (or just better default controls), I'll change my score to an 8.

    Bare-bones port missing several things, which sucks, but not nearly as much not being able to remap the controls.

    Imagine playing Call of Duty but firing your weapon is mapped to X and you can't change it. Clustertruck wants you to use FPS controls but put jump on the A button.

    Edit: Raised to 5 for the Y-Axis fix. Too bad remapped controls never happened...
