Navigate miles and miles of tyre changing, fuel burning, carburettor busting, mud clattering terrain, through night and day, rain and shine. Adapt to whatever the procedurally generated world of Jalopy can throw at you. Upgrade, maintain and care for your Laika 601 Deluxe motor vehicle. Keep close attention to everything from the state of your tyres, the condition of your engine and even the space in your trunk. Repair each aspect of your scrappy little car and install unique upgrades to deal with the changing world. Everything from cargo weight to the condition of your carburettor will determine how your car performs on the open road. The rise of capitalism brings an economical conundrum. Scavenge for scraps to make a small return of investment, or become a baron of the open road and smuggle contraband under the eyes of border patrols to make a sizable profit.
Jalopy is a very interesting game. It's a, I would describe it, Survival Driving Simulator. You set out on a journey through Eastern Europe with the Laika, but you always have to make sure you have enough fuel and maintain and improve the car parts....
You drive through always newly generated, very beautiful but minimalist landscapes with villages in which you have to buy supplies and spend the night there. The atmosphere of the game is very good. Control is usually very good, mouse and keyboard, but sometimes a bit tricky, e. g. when changing and repairing engine parts. At the moment the game still suffers from several bugs, but you can play it very well and recognize the potential. A good representative for Early Access.
- Graphics, Stylish, minimalistic, good
- Idea, that's something completely new
- Atmosphere, has a great mood
- Sound, is just too boring
- Bugs, is just still in EA
For me on any case already very recommendable.
Here a video from a first day in the game:
