Welcome to another FAQ of mine. This one covers the GameBoy game Monster Truck
Wars, which is not really a demolition-derby game as one might think, but is
just another racing game. =/

Yeah, I don't have much to say about this; not real good with this, you know.
But try to enjoy.

----------------
Playing the Game
----------------

This game is pretty simple to describe. When you start up, you'll be allowed to
choose your truck, and the difficulty of the AI.

After that, you'll begin your race. The race will begin with a time-trial heat,
in which you must have the fourth-best time out of six to be allowed into the
actual race. In general, beating your opponent will let you win. Unlike the
real race, which is four laps, you only do one lap in the time trial. If you
fail the time trial, you'll have three attempts, overall, to pass.

After that is the real race, versus three AI players. You can get any position
you can grab here - the better you do, the more points and cash you'll get. The
points determine your overall standings by the game's end; cash is used to make
some upgrades.

During the races, you'll find yourself on an extremely narrow, extremely linear
track. There is no point in me really describing each and every track, due to
the extreme linearity and repetition. On the track, you'll notice potholes,
bumps, and cars. These mostly are set to mess up your truck's suspension,
though they can also damage other things. Speaking of the cars, you'll end up
getting power-ups if you run over cars and completely crush them. These are
typically repairs, cash, or nitrous boosts.

After a race, before the next time-trial heat, you'll be allowed to repair and
upgrade parts of your car. The tires are just damaged from being used or bumped
into by enemies. The suspension is damaged by bumps, running over things, and
such. The engine is damaged by running into things. The nitrous doesn't get
damaged; just used. The chassis also seems to get damaged by running into
things.

The game ends when you've played all of the races or fail the time-trial heat
three times in a row.
