Do you like TV shows like "Lizard Lick" and "Miami Tow"?
Then you'll like this ... since this game sucks as bad as those shows.

Boring, slow, bad controls, iffy graphics and it's just not fun.

Why would you play a game if it's not fun?
If you are thinking about going into the tow business, then maybe this game is for you.
If you get it free and want to find out more about tow trucks, maybe.
If you want to see if you can just randomly town people, like a worst version of GTA, maybe.

Otherwise, just move on to the next game in your "to play" que.

If you see UIE you know you have a STI (of a game).

This Game is not worth the money, and is a true example of pure lazyness and lack of effort from the DEVELOPERS!

This 2015 version of Towtruck Simulator seems to only have marginal additions over Astragon's 2010 version of Tow Truck Simulator, but at the price of some things that made the older version fun. It makes you wonder why UIG even bothered.
In the past you could drive like a maniac with your car hanging off the side, rushing around to get all the cars back to your lot, just left to your own devices to do as you please. This time you must do everything prim and proper until you're even allowed to drive the truck away. I never got that as far as to drive away with the car on the back as I couldn't figure out how to get the truck moving again and in that time the car I had put on the truck had somehow slid it's way off. They focused so much on the physics of the hydraulic stabilizers it seems they didn't have time for much else.

There is no tutorial to guide you through each bit, you're merely given a control screen (controls cannot be customized) and you just have to figure out what to do from there. It doesn't explain things such as what you have to do for the game to trigger to allow you to do the next bit. It's a pretty big thing to overlook really considering the linearity of the game. You're wrapped up in cotton wool to avoid you being silly but doesn't really tell you how to be a great tow truck guy either.

This game is graphics glitches galore. As you view cars in the distance it looks like a scene out of Tokyo Drift as they seem to be sliding down the road at an angle until they come into your draw distance and dissolve away revealing the car that's meant to be there. Everyone on the roads drives at 2mph, yet the sounds in the game would make you believe you were in the middle of Manhattan. It's not uncommon to see the same car several times in one scene, in fact you can even see that in the screenshots! The only thing that differs between them is some cars have shadows and some do not. Spooky!

This game has a star style wanted level system taken straight from GTA. I don't know why it's there or what it does though. It just made a police siren sound and that was it. Not a cop in sight.

I can't tell you if it has replay value or what the rest of the game is like as I couldn't figure out how to get that far. It feels rushed and hastily put together. If you want a tow truck simulator game just find the older version made by Astragon in your local charity shop or on ebay.
