Truck Launch Maniac is an upgrade based game where the goal is to unlock achievements. Start off with a basic truck , with really good suspension, and drive it off a ramp into a landscape filled with bombs, signs, and coins which are placed randomly for each attempt. The bombs can be hit to increase your horizontal and vertical velocity, and the signs will slow you down. Collecting coins awards additional points at the end.
The upgrades include everything you would expect a flying monster truck to have such as wheels, rockets, and lower weight. Truck Launch Maniac does not take a lot of skill from the player, but once you start to strategically purchase upgrades, it becomes quite fun and addictive.
