Cargo Transportation: Low Poly, is a Steam game that came out on January 13th, 2021, where you, the player, have to transport cargo. Simple enough, right?

Starting off, the game is a little slow, like literally slow, because you have to purchase upgrades to make your truck faster. And those upgrades start at 200 coins, which are collected by driving though them on each course. The first course, out of 24, only has 14 coins, so to get the first upgrade to make your truck a little faster, you’d have to play the first level at least 15 times. And I recommend you do that, because the truck you start out with, seems to have some trouble making it over some of the obstacles in later levels without being upgraded a few times.

If you decide you want to buy a new truck, then start saving because that’s going to cost you 1000 coins. I’ll be honest, I haven’t even gotten to that point yet because I’m too focused on upgrading my starter truck. And the time it would take to buy a new truck, I’m not really willing to put into this game.

The level design is surprisingly varied, with different ramps and obstacles throughout, but all within the same world. There is even the occasional overpass style ramp that requires some seriously skilled driving, which this game wasn’t really made for, at least not in a speedy way. Which reminds me, I forgot to mention each level has a time limit. A time limit that serves seemingly no purpose other than to add to your final score depending on how much time is left at the end of your run. But if you’d rather focus on collecting all the coins for the upgrades, thats fine too, because if the clock runs out, you still get to finish.

The main objective of this game is to make it from the start to the finish line, and the only stipulation is that you have to have at least one piece of cargo, be it a box or a barrel, in the back of your truck when you cross the finish line. As long as you can do that, you can progress to the next level.

Beyond that, there’s not much end game to this particular title, but if you’re looking for a way to kill some time, its not a bad way to do it. And if you’re planning to buy all the trucks, and upgrades, you’re going to need a lot of time.
