Piloting a little yellow ship, load all trucks on a construction site (a level) with cargo within the working shift of 180 seconds. Cargo is picked up and hooked to the ship by flying over a so called dispenser.

Truck

A truck is loaded by releasing (ejecting) the cargo and hitting the truck with it. By proper flying the cargo can be put into rotation which allows for hurls and hammer like throws. Also the cargo can be balanced on the ships nose.

The game actually contains some physics similiar to Thrust but otherwise its different: Its kind of minigames where every level introduces some new kind of obstacles: Gravities, buoyancy, cutting cargo from pendulums, loading trucks which are on rotating meteors, racing etc. In this respect it is similiar to the Space Taxi Game.

The music tracks are from my Chiptune album "Invasion Postponed". The HTML5 version additionally utilizes the 8bitoperator font (C)GrandChaos9000 from www.dafont.com (freeware) and the mxml parser from mxml.sourceforge.net. Large portions of Schubi C++ codebase were transpiled to HTML5 utilizing emscripten (github.com/kripken/emscripten).

Remarks

The physics in the html5 and android version are not totally identical. E.g. in the android version the thrust requires longer to reach its maximum which allows for easier piloting with touch. In the android version there is no thrust sound because it was created using a second mediaplayer which caused stutter on some Android devices.

The name of the game derives from "Schub" which is german for "Thrust".
