Critic Reviews for Clustertruck
Clustertruck just about gets everything right. The high price kind of puts me off, but the game makes up for it with creativity and the ability to share user content. Sadly, the campaign ends on such a downer that I was more frustrated than anything. At least the game was hilariously fun for 90% of it's duration.
Clustertruck debuts on Switch retaining the "pure platform" vibe from the PC version, with the core mechanics working like a charm in portable mode. The "jump over trucks" seems silly at first, but all the variations make it interesting till the end. It's a shame that, as in other console versions, the leaderboards and level editor are missing.

Clustertruck is an okay game that has the player jumping from truck to truck as a cluster of semis destroy themselves, careening through eight different worlds with increasingly difficult obstacles along the way. Abilities and utilities that are earned along the way can make the game easier, but it will still take a lot of repeating levels to make one's way through the game. While it's a fun for a while, the game soon becomes frustrating and repetitive, especially for those of us who aren't great at jumping.
Clustertruck stands as a metaphor for life itself. Where do these trucks come from? Where are these trucks going? None of that matters now that you can play this game anytime, anywhere free from the tyranny of non-portable entertainment centres. An exquisite balance of arcade first-person action and physics puzzle that leaves little but one single course of action when faced with a glimpse of its pure brilliant absurdity: Keep on (cluster)truckin', baby!
