About This Game

A true test your wits and spatial reasoning. DETOUR combines the highway building fun from the Sim City series with the addictive excitement of real-time-strategy games like Starcraft and Command & Conquer.

The goal of the game is simple: forge a path for your convoy of trucks to reach its destination, but obtaining your goal often requires a mix of smart resource allocation, clever route planning, and strategic thinking. Your AI and human enemies will try to stop your progress with routes of their own.

DETOUR sports endless amounts of unique strategies, Adaptive AI opponents, 5 distinct modes of play, dozens of singleplayer maps, unlockables, online play, an epic soundtrack, and much, much more!

Basic Information
Title: DETOUR
Developer: Sandswept Studios
Publisher: Epic Quest Games
Genre: Arcade strategy

General Impression
DETOUR is an intriguing hybrid strategy game with arcade and even a few tower defense elements. The objectives are simple and the graphics are only decent enough. And yet the game is fairly priced and features Trading Cards and some very challanging Achievements. Protecting your truck convoy through both careful planning and resource management proves to be a fun experience once you overlook a few constant bugs that don’t break the game but are a source of frustration nonetheless.

Strong Points
+ Interesting gameply mechanics.
+ Steam Trading Cards & Achievements.

Weak Points
- Random crashes and glitches.

Rating 6/10

t's pretty much dead, in the morning atleast. But it's fun. The recoil is like shooting an MG42 while running.
I got this for free, so, I cannot really comply anyway.

The game was fun for about five minutes... It's decent for passing the time. It's quite easy...

Game crashes when being minimized, mouse and graphics stutter a lot and every so often AI enemies just gain insane speed.
I like the idea of the game but it's simply not really playable for me.

Reason i have all these hours is for the 24 hour achievement
The idea of the game could had been great but its just bad. Huge bugs/crashes destroys the game. AVOID IT!

NOTE: pass the caffeine pills achievement love 24 hours is broken. Just verify cache and BAMM!!

This game is worth the 12.5c my friend paid for it, and not a penny more. Menus are confusing and bugged. Turret defense says it's multiplayer but it's a "typo". This game has potential, but it's far from it - feels like a very rough draft of a game.

Honestly i count play rust so i started this then i see ive player for 5 hours.its not bad . the tutorial is really easy then it gets hard i think thats why people dont like it its a long tutorial at the begging then after that its chanleging.yea its a litle buggy i wont lie.but you make tracks.trucks go there.missiles are shot at your trucks.rage a bit and fire back.later build roads simply to claim land to have an advantage. constatly rebuild them and defend till you get 3 trucks to the other side. i think this game could be worth $5 glad my friend bought it for me.

It's alright, but gets boring prety quickly. Worth it on a sale; otherwise, don't bother.
