Go for a wild ride with heavy machinery in Extreme Forklifting for Windows Phone

Extreme Forklifting

Have you ever wondered what it's like to drive and operate a forklift? You can try with Extreme Forklifting for Windows Phone. It has been available for iOS and Android, but now it's on our favorite platform, too. Head past the break to watch some gameplay video with the Nokia Lumia Icon.

The basic idea of Extreme Forklifting is to pick up pallets from point A and then drop them off at point B. Do it quickly and without damaging the pallets to get bonus points. As you gain experience, pallets become heavier and drop-off locations become trickier.

Extreme Forklifting

Learning to control the forklift is a fun challenge itself. There's a steering wheel to the left and two levers to the right. Throttle forward or backwards with the lower lever. Move the fork up or down with the upper lever. You can change the camera view by swiping left or right on the screen.

Once you have mastered moving with the forklift, it becomes easier to transfer pallets. There's a red imaginary line in front of the forklift that helps you line up with the pallets. After every delivery, you get a message with the base pay earned, bonus points for fast delivery, and any penalties for damaging the goods. It doesn't stop there. You move on to the next pallet.

Extreme Forklifting

Extreme Forklifting is fun for the first few minutes, but it quickly becomes repetitive. There's only one shipping yard and we don't see any option to upgrade the forklift. We'd love to see upgrades to go faster or handle heavier loads. Perhaps we'll see that in an update.

Extreme Forklifiting is available at the Windows Phone Store for free, but displays ads during gameplay. We don't see an in-app purchase option to remove the ads. Have some time to kill? Check out Extreme Forklifting and let us know what you think in the comments!

DEVM games, if you are reading this: Please make your games available here in Brazil. You can use PEGI or ESRB certification to do this. I can help.

Ok, here I go, again: I dont do this for myself, I do this for the whole brazilian community of WP brazilian users that unlikely us dont know that, or dont want to do that. I do this for the third biggest WP market in the world. Just it.

This bloke provides a valuable service for the Brazilian WP scene. Devs read these articles and it helps gets apps published. It's not a case of changing regions, it's helping to educate devs when it comes to releasing their products. At the end of the day they will make more money.

You people don't deserve it, not after that 7-1 atleast xD lol jk. Just change your region, untill devs start paying attention to the 3rd largest country of WP users :(

I don't know how developing works, but surely there should be a 'check box' that a dev has to select to make an app universal. Sounds like the current system is not very intuitive, something which Microsoft needs to fix

Thanks for letting me know. I'm going to look into the certification things in the next few days.

And also fix the bug which seems to make some ads appear way to big.

Thanks.

You can use PEGI or ESRB to publish here. The submission page states that and explain how to do it. Just upload one of them in the DJCTQ place (the brazilian one), select one age rate that matches that certificate and then select Brazil. Is done. You can use PEGI to also publish in Russia.
You can instantly get a PEGI certificate in here: https://wp-rating.pegi.eu/Games/Submit
You can instantly get a ESRB certificate in here: https://autoratingtool.esrb.org/ARTclient/Windows8Metro.aspx

This seems to be a bug, I'm going to submit a new version that should fix this in the next few days. Sorry about that.

How well does the job pay? Thinking of switching careers. Do you have any idea? Would you recommend it for a fellow Windows Phone user? Please tell.

I'm self employed now. I haven't been at that job in 7 years. My take-home was around $45 000 CAD a year plus bonus'. It wasn't strictly driving either, just a part of the job. It's fun, as long as it's not constant. But I'm easily board.

Driving a real forklift was a difficult for me but I have my license. Hopefully my skills help me in this game fingers crossed

Well, I'm not too fond of propane powered sit-down forklifts.  Propanes are excessively noisy and their exhaust isn't healthy to breathe in. If it's an a/c battery powered standup fork for indoor use (preferably a Raymond), then I'd like to try the game. 

It wont start being 'extreme' until you get at least a JCB 926 on the go. Or a tele-handler or something. As it stands this should be called 'small scale, mundane forklifting' ;-)

I drove a narrow aisle Raymond (w extending forks) almost 40 years ago. Now that was a blast.
Down through the years I have also driven things up to the super mining trucks (300 ton payloads), and I would say that the Raymond took far more skill.
I would be all over this game if it had the Raymond, and did it well.
