  • 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.

    Clustertruck does for jumping what 'SUPERHOT' does for shooting. It boils down the genre into a distilled form, with very few bells and whistles. It doesn't really need the bells and whistles, and manages to more or less avoid the tedium for a long time solely by virtue of its immaculate platforming.

    There is variety and immense replayability as you try to beat your previous score. Had the moving trucks not been a part of the core experience, Clustertruck would’ve been an average game but the fact that it incorporates such a unique element into the title elevates it considerably.

    ClusterTrack is very aptly named. At times it truly is a complete cluster &$%@, but in a good way! It’s a chaotic, yet smartly designed platformer, one of the best I’ve played it quite some time.

    I’ve not felt this challenged in a long time, and the levels do nothing but push you to the absolute pinnacle of your resolve. It’s just a shame some of the game’s bugs can ruin your progression.

    An inventive and totally nuts gameplay gets counterbalanced by inaccurate controls and some way too frustrating difficulty spikes, reaching sadistic levels near the end. That's a real pity, as when it works, Clustertruck can entertain like few other games this year.

    Clustertruck is a really unique concept, and it's one that I enjoy in doses of up to about an hour, but only very occasionally longer than that. It has a decent sized and rewarding campaign, and it can be played with pals in a pass the pad, score attack kind of approach. There is a ton of replay value because the unlockable skills which give the ability to replay levels in new ways. With all that said, there's no way that Clustertruck is going to appeal to everyone. Clustertruck is utterly bonkers, skill intensive, hard as nails and occasionally frustrating, but for me it is still compelling enough to be worth a look.

    While it's a fun for a while, the game soon becomes frustrating and repetitive.

They move around quite random and can make it difficult to not fall to your death. Maps usually have massive drop offs, ramps, Slow motion, death traps and many other ways to die. There is also a nice amount of themes to the maps, Some Retro some medieval but it helps keep the game fresh.ClusterTruck shines when you are in the middle of those "Oh crap" Moments, When your go off of a drop off or double jumping hundreds of meters ahead you get a great feeling of speed and action. ClusterTruck is at it's prime when you start to master the game and learn how to double jump just right or how to handle your speed and momentum.There are lots of upgrades to choose from like Jet pack or double jump that can completely change how you play. The game has a fair amount of levels to work your way through but they also have a level editor so the possibilities are endless. If your a fan of fast paced extremely intense action games I really Recommend ClusterTruck, It's in a league of it's own. Expand

Could have been a great game if it had some more interesting abilities, an offering of alternative game modes to utilise the mechanics, and a better control system. The only legitimate issue however, that actually detracts from the experience, is the ludicrous difficulty spike for the final level. Expand

    Les développeurs indés développent parfois de drôles d'idées... tantôt ça fonctionne (comme dans un Super Hot par exemple) tantôt ça finit enLes développeurs indés développent parfois de drôles d'idées... tantôt ça fonctionne (comme dans un Super Hot par exemple) tantôt ça finit en eau de boudin... Or Clusterfouck appartient à la seconde catégorie, celle des bonnes idées mal développées.

    L'idée ici -complètement siphonnée- est de sauter en vue subjective sur des camions conduits par des Polonais en surdose de vodka qui filent à toute allure et jouent aux bahuts tamponneurs avec de temps à autre des obstacles qui viennent ajouter encore au bordel ambiant...

    Si ça se prend en main très vite et si on subodore un potentiel prometteur dès les premiers niveaux, on se rend compte néanmoins du caractère totalement aléatoire du "jeu" en lui-même, car les camions font n'importe quoi et sont imprévisibles : en gros, ça revient à jouer à Colin-Maillard sur une autoroute allemande.

    Le "jeu" étant comme l'aiment à l'appeler nos amis anglo-saxons du type "instafail" (c'est-à-dire "crève et recommence... connaaard"), on peut passer un temps ahurissant sur un seul niveau à sauter comme un dératé en lâchant un "merde" toutes les 15 secondes.

    Nul doute que la durée de vie d'un tel produit est alors très longue mais usante pour le sang-froid et les nerfs. Je ne doute d'ailleurs pas d'une recrudescence de crises d'épilepsie chez nos amis kévins : deux heures pleines de ce truc pourraient même conduire à des dommages cérébraux.

    Les graphismes sont simples et simplets mais ont le mérite d'être très lisibles pour un "jeu" de ce genre alors que la musique assez électro rentre bien dans le crâne à force d'entendre toujours la même. Bien casse-couilles et d'une maniabilité très imprécise, Clusterprout est donc une idée qui a foiré sur toute la ligne ou presque : un beau pétard mouillé en somme.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. ClusterTruck glitches so often that the player will find themselves dying from seemingly hitting nothing. Graphics are laughably bad and offers no atmosphere apart from the same white truck and a bland background, if even a background at all.
    Not to mention the final level is broken, making the game completely unbeatable. Making the whole painstaking journey for a high number of Gamerscore useless due to crashing upon beating the final boss. Do not waste money on an experience where there is no ending.
