Vehicle : An Exhilarating Exercise in Vehicular Navigation

In this odd little game, or toy, or puzzle, or what you will, you find yourself in charge of steering an odd little two-wheeled vehicle through a vertical landscape beset with challenges. You will use your ingenuity and a couple of grappling hooks to navigate the terrain. A bit befuddling at first, if you give it time you will find it remarkably interesting.


Once you've mastered the technique, try a more challenging version: Office Navigation

Vehicle 2 Instructions

This winsome little application lets you "drive" a very special vehicle around a twisty, craggy maze of terrain. To start driving, wait until the applet has loaded, then activate by clicking it with your mouse. Use the following keys to control it:

CURSOR LEFT: drive left
CURSOR RIGHT: drive right
CURSOR DOWN: dive (in water)
CURSOR UP: float to surface (in water)
s: rotate turret contra-clockwise
f: rotate turret clockwise
d: fire the "rope" using the turret; press again to "cut" the rope
e: shorten the rope (pull)
c: lengthen the rope
1: switch to rope #1
2: switch to rope #2

You can use the rope to pull the car up the walls and climb -- it works like a grappling hook. There are two grappling hooks (key 1 and 2 to switch between them). Use them in combination to get almost everywhere. Trying to go through the level with only one grappling hook might be a bit tricky.

You can swim and dive in watery places. Like a submarine, you can change the "density" of the vehicle to make it dive into the water or let it gently float to the surface using the CURSOR UP and CURSOR DOWN keys.

Just like life, there is no way to actually win. And just like life, the trick is to use your ingenuity to navigate a long and perplexing labyrinth of uncertain terrain for no apparent reason and toward no particular goal.
