Totally Reliable Delivery Service Review

The characters and game world simulates (and exaggerates) real physics, that you have to work with to get around, pick up things and use the variety of vehicles on offer. Because you can grip on to anything in the world, even other players, the game often becomes a cascade of hilarious and unintended consequences.
The game is intentionally difficulty, whacky and complex to control. You will spend a lot of time falling over, dropping things, crashing and generally getting flung around the place. It's like Octodad in that some will find it just too hard to play, while others (particularly the young) will love messing around the world and pranking other players.
If kids enjoy Roblox games, and aren't worried about the odd glitch or janky controls will enjoy this. A bit like Go Vacation it's the sort of game kids love because adults don't get it.
Whether or not you progress the deliveries as you are supposed to, there is a lot of fun to be had here. Even exploring the world is enjoyable, as it's chock full of toys, vehicles, and machines that can be used for work or play.
