DETOUR is a real-time strategy game developed by Sandswept Studios.


DETOUR is a competitive multiplayer game, that can either be played against AI or with three other players. The main objective of DETOUR is to get your trucks to your destination safely. The other players will prevent you from doing so by placing turrets, placing obstacles or destroying the roads.

DETOUR has several elements of tower defense games. In order to get your truck to the finish, you will have to build new roads to avoid your opponents, use shops to distract their truck drivers, blow up rocks to build tunnels through the mountains and build up your offensive turrets to destroy the enemy trucks.

The players have a wide range of weapons at their disposal: air, land, and sea turrets, electromagnetic pulses, or the basic physics objects. There is still one condition present in the game - the players can't put any turrets too close to the enemy trucks, adding to the game's difficulty.

Should the players start a solo game, five difficulty levels will be available to them. The game features a number of maps with different scenarios. How about a map, where there are four lines with each one of them belonging to a different player? How will you build your defense and offense? Who is going to take up all the available space first and deliver their cargo?

It goes considering that it is Cheap it gets Many Collectible cards. Considering, though, that you can only get half the Collectible cards.

The Menus are confusing and budged, the Multiplayer is very unbalanced and the Gameplay is just awful. In My Opinion, that's not even worth the 19 Cents for which I got it in the Sellout.

Oh one I've ekaped this game in the sale for 11 cent and feel mercilessly dragged across the Table ... The game (if you can call it that) is the purest kids time wasted with ner graphics that could look better on any old Nokia Phone. Happy thanks (not) for this absolute Pile of Scrap metal

... One of the worst Games I've ever been given. Game Principle very simple. 3/10 (build a Road and drive along it) Graphics is also bad. 4/10 Ne story doesn't exist either. 3/10 Replay value Equals zero. 0/10 Around one of the worst Games ever on my Hard Drive. (Don't buy this ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

When I first started this Game, I was a bit skeptical at first. But the Graphics are amazingly good and everything is clear and simple. After playing through the well-explained Touchtorials and understanding everything quickly, I devoted myself to Multiplayer with my Friend. After the first Round, we were both really surprised that such a simple and cheap Game is so much Fun. The Game is very tactical and you have some Ways to make the Game fun (E.g. Upset friends with Bombs). Overall, the Game surprised me positively and for the Price it is only recommended ...:)
