Go over and under big rocks, scale entire walls of rock using the car's winch, drive through rivers and waterfalls, balance your car on tree logs and rocks. Use the terrain and different objects around the level to navigate through seemingly impossible challenges by pulling them in the right position and using their shape and weight to your advantage. Break boxes, collect traffic cones, drive fast and safe to unlock achievements. Use the arrow keys (or W,A,S,D) to drive and your mouse the position the winch's hook. Once the hook grabs on to an object it will help you pull your car towards it or pull the whole object towards the car.

Once the hook is connected engage the winch by pressing the SHIFT key.

Release the hook at any time pressing the SPACE key or just drive over (past) it. Other useful keys:

ESC - to access the settings screen or pause the game,

R - to restart a from the previous check point.

The game wouldn't start for me, after hitting the play button the screen goes black. i'm using the latest version of chrome. as far as i know my flash player and everything is up to date. it wouldn't let me submit a review without rating it so im just giving it a 3.5 to be inline with your current score.

Sorry to hear that ...Sounds like you need to enable Hardware acceleration from Flash settings ( Right click on the game, settings, choose the left most panel on the bottom of the window that pops up and tick the "Enable hardware acceleration box" ) . This option might not be available for older computers and video cards. Also having your latest video card drivers will help.

great game, difficult though!

Painful reminder of dune buggy.

A lot of these 2D "trials" style offroad games are pretty much cookie-cutter. They don't do anything new or interesting, just put a new coat of paint on an old idea. This one though does some unique new stuff--the addition of a winch is a clever and useful idea, and really helps you get out of sticky situations. The rest of the game is pretty standard fare, but it's at least well executed.

This game is actually very good. I normally don't like these 2D driving games, i think there are just too many of them out there and none are worth my time, so i was pretty reluctant about playing this. But the hook mechanics add a whole new level of challenge and fun to the game. So yeah, the controls are good,(it took me some time to understand them, but they're good once you learn) the graphics are fine, the sound cool as well. Why didn
