Cargo Parking is a game about getting a truck and a trailer into some tight parking spots. You’ve got a steering wheel and two gears – forwards and reverse. With those small tools you have to park your load perfectly before moving onto the next challenge.
The game isn’t exactly difficult to get to grips with, but there are some challenges waiting for the uninitiated. Which is why we thought we’d write this guide – to get you initiated. Follow these strategies and you’re going to be the truck parking monarch in no time flat. And you’re not going to destroy too many other vehicles while you’re doing it.
It doesn’t make a difference if you’re reversing into a bay for the first time or you’ve already delivered a good few loads – there’s going to be something here that’ll take your skills to the next level. These are the best hints, tips and cheats for Cargo Parking.
The biggest mistake you can make is wrenching the steering wheel around in massive, sweeping moves. That’s almost guaranteed to end up with you in a horrible tangle – at the very least. Be gentle with your moves, and when you do need to make big ones, make them steadily and with slow bursts of acceleration.
Watch the lights
On some levels there are traffic lights between you and your goal. These will have a countdown clock on them, which shows when the next vehicle or stream of pedestrians is going to pass by. Hitting them will lose you a life, so make sure you’re not on the road when they appear.
Take your time
While there are time limits, most of them are generous enough to allow you to make, and correct, your mistakes. If you’re not happy with the angle of approach, take a moment to correct it. You should always be aiming to finish with the full complement of lives, and that sometimes means you’ll have to take a few extra seconds.
When you’re in the parking space, you’re not going to have much room to make corrections. Look at your angle as you’re moving in, and if it’s going to get you in trouble, pull out. Reposition your truck and make the approach again. Trying to fix things when you’re between two parked vehicles is asking for trouble.
What are the coins for?
You can spend the coins on new accoutrements for your cab. You’ll also unlock these as you play, so there’s not much point watching the videos to earn extra cash. Also, when you unlock a new cab, you can skip watching the video too – you’ll have the new vehicle at the start of the next level and have saved yourself some time.
