Monster Truck Doodle opens with images of five monster trucks; a modified VW bug, a modified VW bus, a pick-up truck, an SUV and a sports car. Players first select a truck (yes, we know these are not all trucks) and then start the building and customizing process. Stretch or shrink the body, choose the engine, suspension and then tires. Our testers' eyes widened as they inflated the tires even larger than the truck body. Paint and add decals and the truck is ready to hit the country road. The vehicle's forward motion is controlled by an arrow button on the bottom right of the screen. A stop icon is located on the bottom left. As the truck goes flying over hill and dale, the driver can work to avoid - or smash into pieces of fruit. For the fruit-stained, the next stop is the truck wash. Players use a sponge, hose and brush to clean up the mess, repaint and get back to the business of monster trucks.
