‘Trucker: Parking Simulator’ is an actual thing

Few activities in life earn as many man points as nailing a reverse L park into a narrow alley at the wheel of an articulated truck. Well, now all the man points can be yours, thanks to Trucker: Parking Simulator. GTA V's got nothing on this bad boy...

Boasting an improbable 72-level career mode, Parking Simulator tests your precision, accuracy and skill at parking a truck (either the European oil tanker, or ShortList's personal favourite, the plough-wielding American monster truck) amongst an assortment of cones and crates. It's harder than the professionals make it look.

While we might scoff at the niche appeal of such a title, it's worth noting that Parking Simulator has received over one million App Store downloads. There's even a fiercely competitive international leader board (which we are currently bottom of).

Check out the video for a demonstration of the "Realistic physics for exciting driving!", in a world that looks remarkably similar to Milton Keynes. But with more trees.
