Hello space traveler! In SPACE TOW TRUCK, you play as an astronaut that has to, after a painful car crash landing on the Moon, use the laws of mechanics and the innovative patented technologies of SPACE TOW TRUCK to get out of trouble. Besides, who is behind the awkward and mysterious SPACE TOW TRUCK customer service? And why is this "person" so motivated to help you? In story mode, the narrative of the game, which approaches a romantic comedy and addresses the Fermi paradox (are we alone in the Universe?), will surprise you! With this recreational-educational game targeted for teenagers and adults, you'll solve puzzles and master physics while discovering the Moon! With this game created by a physics teacher, physics and puzzles are intimately linked! Each world of the game covers a different physics concept like position, displacement, velocity, acceleration, etc. In story mode, the game starts smoothly with the position and displacement concepts. For a bigger challenge when starting out, use the puzzle mode or the unlocked levels mode to be able to do the 5th world directly on acceleration or the 7th world on black holes and circular motion. You will challenge your mechanics skills while using : a Spacetime Vortex to repair your car a Teleport Beam to change your position Dual Portals to make displacements an Antimatter Impulse to change your velocity an Electric Impulse to apply a delta-velocity to your car an Advanced Laser Beam to control your acceleration a Gravitational Wave Beam to control gravity a Patented Black Hole Technology to apply circular motions to your car About the lore of the game, completing each level will reveal the history of science in the level selection scene. As you progress, you will also know more about the Moon, its craters, its seas, and the space landers that dot its surface. Also, the 7th world of the game is dedicated to women in science because it was important for me to talk about the 32 women that are immortalized on the surface of the Moon (out of a total of 1600 craters named after scientists, only 32 are women!). Finally, it's important to say that few games today use REAL physics to make puzzles. In addition, few games provide an in-depth look at high school and pre-university physics. Yet, these physics puzzles can be a lot of fun, in addition to being an extremely effective way to understand abstract concepts like acceleration. In this sense, SPACE TOW TRUCK fills a void that could benefit anyone interested in science and space, but also teachers and students in high school and pre-university. I created this recreational-educational game because I believe we lack games to feel, understand and democratize high school and pre-university physics. This is why the game demo, which covers the concepts of position and displacement, is offered free of charge to anyone interested in physics (approximately 45 minutes of gameplay). FEATURES Use eight space and patented technologies Use an innovative self-service system developped by SPACE TOW TRUCK Enjoy a replay system with slow motion effect Get help from a mysterious "person" working at SPACE TOW TRUCK and find out why it is so motivated to help you Hear Soft Music Discover the Moon, with its seas, its craters and the landers that dot its surface Learn about the history of science and its evolution, with the last world dedicated to women in science Feel, understand and learn the laws of mechanics Game created by a physics teacher who worked part time for three years on this game Whatever your emergency, SPACE TOW TRUCK have the tools to get you on your way. Happy space travels.

Space Tow Truck Critic Reviews

The sad part is that I haven't seen anyone else even mention the game, so I guess it's partially up to me to spread the word now.
