It's been something of a dry spell, but at long last we have some new details on Super Mario Run, the next mobile entry from Nintendo. Nintendo has been a bit resistant in jumping into mobile games, but that's slowly been changing over the course of the year. Earlier in the spring we were treated to Miitomo, a pleasant enough social app that let you get dressed up and collect friends.

Super Mario Run was then announced in September at an Apple press conference, pushing back the anticipated release of the Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem mobile games folks were pretty excited about. We learned that the game was to be an endless runner of sorts, but apart from that, we didn't have a whole lot to go on. Until now, that is, thanks to this latest announcement from Nintendo. Let's take a look at what we can expect from Super Mario Run.

The latest title from OviLEx Software, Extreme Truck Simulator, might appear to only do exactly what it says on the tin at first glance - but take a closer look under the hood and you’ll find yourself trucking along at a mile a minute in no time.

Launched this week on Android and iOS, there hasn’t yet been a better way to truly step into the shoes of an extreme truck driver as you drive various heavy duty vehicles such as snow plows, forklifts, cement trucks, and many more across the mountains, desert, and city.

Extreme Truck Simulator tasks you with multiple heavy duty goals to complete across 80 challenging and distinct levels, presenting you with the ability to track how you compare against friends through online leaderboards and achievements. Prefer trucking alone? Feel free in the game’s free ride mode.

There’s no need to worry about reaching ‘braking’ point in terms of how each truck feels to take a control of either, with optional sliding pedals, tilt steering, and automatic & manual transmission controls all being easy to tweak. It’ll never be a chore to tow away a car, load up a lorry, or simply cruise along the country road.

Incredibly detailed vehicle interiors help to fully immerse you behind the wheel amidst the varyting weather conditions too, and as shown by the launch trailer there’s never a dull day in the life of an extreme truck driver.

Extreme Truck Simulator acts as a great way to put pedal to the metal when on the go, and is available to download on the App Store and Google Play right now.
