'Bus Driver' - 15 New Screens

by Rainier on Oct. 15, 2007 @ 9:05 a.m. PDT

In Bus Driver, your job is to transport passengers around an attractive and realistic city. You must drive to a timetable on a planned route, whilst obeying traffic rules, and taking care not to upset or injure your passengers.

Bus Driver puts the player in the driving seat of twelve different buses, each beautifully detailed and inspired by real life buses in use from around the world. Types include: London double deckers, American-style school buses and European low-floor city buses. As you manoeuvre each of them around a realistic looking fictional American city you’ll need to keep to planned routes and to within the restrictions of a very busy timetable.

You’ll start to learn the basics of professional driving by obeying the Highway Code and treating your passengers’ safety as an absolute priority. Unlike other driving games, Bus Driver’s focus is on securing the well being of your passengers at all times and on 100% reliability of the service you provide.

You’ll get to drive around an expansive city environment featuring different suburbs and districts. Each one contains varying styles including modern, old town, residential suburbs, an airport and the local harbour.

There are 30 routes to negotiate which are staged over five tiered levels of increasing difficulty. You’ll enjoy the satisfaction of progressing up through the difficulty levels! Multiple duties include driving a school bus, transporting tourists and sightseers and even prisoners! Varying weather conditions (all realistically depicted) and set at various times throughout the day add to Bus Driver’s realism.

Bus Driver also contains ‘living roads’ with intelligent traffic controlled by a sophisticated AI system. A high replay value is guaranteed by the constant learning and improvement in knowledge of traffic rules and gameplay related bonuses.

Features :

  • tackle all kinds of weather conditions, day and night
  • find your way around in a large city with several quarters
  • handle the responsibility of collecting children for school
  • transport a basketball team to opponents' stadium
  • drive a prison bus under tight security conditions
  • make sure the city transportation system is perfectly on time

Bus Driver is coming October 26th, 2007
