Trucks and Skulls iPhone Game Review - Gameplay
What can I say? Trucks and Skulls is a great game that with lots of explosions and cool monster trucks that you smash into giant skulls. From the moment you fire up this game, you’ll immediately notice a striking resemblance to one of the most popular iPhone games to date - Angry Birds.
The gameplay is pretty similar. You have monster trucks to hurl from one side of the screen towards giant skulls positioned and arranged at the other end of the screen. The giant skulls are placed in various types of platforms with various structures that will be difficult for you to destroy. Monster trucks come from a platform which you can control via a finger-swipe. You can position the angle that the monster trucks will take before launching them. You can send those trucks flying into the sky before hitting the giant skulls or send them rolling onto the ground.
As you play the game, you’ll be confronted with various obstacles, including hot lava that will hamper your strategy at successfully destroying the skulls. The lower the number of trucks that you’ve used to accomplish your level goal, the higher your scores will be.

Trucks and Skulls iPhone Game Review - Graphics and Sounds
Two important features of this game which make it fun and entertaining are the excellent graphics and hard-rock type of game sound theme. The graphics look beautiful on the retina display of the iPhone 4 and I’m pretty sure it will look good on other iPhone models as well. Since this is a physics-puzzler type of game, it is important that the game physics must be pretty good - and they are actually great!
When it comes to sound, the game is equally excellent with the choice of soundtrack. Since, this is supposed to be an explosive game with lots of crashing - the game’s soundtrack should be equally loud and explosive - and yes, hard-rock music fanatics will love the game’s soundtrack.
