Hope you like this one. I’ve put quite a lot of effort into it. I thought I’d post the theme to give you an idea of what it’s about. Even if the type of game doesn’t appeal, it’s worth checking out just for the scene. I think it looks quite realistic. It also shows how much you can get out of a 77k image.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR EXPLOSIVES EXPRESS
You are the driver of a Skidoo Train selling and delivering explosives tothe mining community on the Island of Goldigun. The owner of the local explosives factory is aware of your reputation for being a little reckless when it comes to handling dangerous cargos (such as just tossing them over the miners fences and hoping for the best!) therefore he has taken to making you pay for the merchandise upfront.(No cash, no Merchandise!) It costs you 50 dollars for each case, this can be turned into 200 dollars per case when delivered. He has been generous enough to start you off with 4 cases. The rest is up to you!
The minors also don’t trust you very much either, they won’t hang around when a delivery is due, instead they leave an illuminated sign on their buildings when they require some explosives, this will go out when the delivery is complete. The cases are colour coded so you don’t get mixed up. (The wrong consignment will result in disaster!) They have a very good credit transfer system on the Island, the payment is transferred to your account immediately.
Unfortunately your life is no bed of roses, for not only are there many bumpy roads(which can cause the explosives to blow up), swamps, quicksand etc, there are also many outlaws in the hills waiting to ambush you. The good news is, you have a large gun to defend yourself and unlimited ammunition. There’s 100 dollars reward on the head of each outlaw so it can be quite profitable if you manage to get the better of them.
You are lucky in the fact you have 5 lives, but these only apply to being struck by exploding shells. If you drive into rocks, buildings, snow drifts, swamps, quicksand or any other such hazard, you die immediately!
The cases of explosives have to be placed inside the perimeter fences of the miners properties.There are 12 delivery points. The game is finished when you have completed all 12.(that’s when you’ve found them of course, it’s a very large Island!) The scenery is quite breath taking, especially when seen from the top of a mountain.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I have!
