Speeding Towards The Town Are The Trucks Of War

One game that is sure to please the crowds is tug-of-war. No matter where it is played or who plays it, people find a great time when they start tugging. And so, this classic has translated into many different iterations in video games. One of these happens to be Trucks Of War.

Trucks Of War has successfully taken the arcade action genre and made a game that requires quick thinking and fast reflexes. Add to that a dose of competition, and the game easily becomes a great way to pass the time. While the game cannot boast about having a story line or exceptional character development, it does have the benefit of being a great game to play with friends.


The idea behind Trucks Of War is that two trucks have been chained together and one has to pull the other over the line. Both the trucks are equally strong and rely on some external help in order to get ahead. This comes in the form of a can of Gasoline. Players must pick the gas can as soon as it is shown on screen in order to rev up their trucks and move ahead.

The other option is to pick the can of oil, which is a folly. Players that choose the can of oil by accident will suffer a setback and be that much closer to being pulled over the line. As a two-player game, the rush of competitive spirit is quite high in Trucks Of War, which definitely translates into the players.

Trucks Of War has well designed graphics, which complement the overall theme of the game. The sound effects and music add another layer, considering how well they add to the action-packed feel of the game.


Trucks Of War has a very simple control scheme. This makes it a great game for younger children to start playing. However, the task of learning when and where to use it is what players will have to learn.

  • Player one can use the A key to drive forward.
  • Player two can use the Right arrow key for the same.
  • The M key can be used to mute the game.
  • The P key can be used to pause the game.
  • The Esc key can be used to exit the game.


Even though Trucks Of War is one of the endless games that feature the concept of tug-of-war, it does have a quality that makes it both engaging and endearing. For this, it earns three and a half stars out of five.

  • The first star is for the graphics, design and use of sound effects.
  • The second star is for the learning curve and difficulty level.
  • The third star is for the overall gameplay and game mechanics.
  • The half star is awarded for being an entertaining version that stands out amongst many other similar games.

With a little bit of work and more levels, Trucks Of War could become both an arcade and a strategy game. Even so, it remains a game that players must check out at least once.
