Simulation games are always interesting and offer a great experience. The thing with these games is that there are no major stakes involved and you can easily get a good taste of what the given activity feels like. Simulation games have become greatly popular as mobile games and there is seemingly an endless list of simulator games available in the Play Store. A bus simulator game going by the name of Coach Bus Simulator is a nice option with the idea behind the game to simulate the experience of driving a big passenger bus.
The game has an interesting storyline as you basically manage a bus company. You drive the buses at different routes and have to ensure that you carry the passengers to their destination without any incident and without any traffic violation. The storyline is simple but it helps that you are the manager as well as the driver which means that both elements of a bus company are incorporated in the bus simulator game.
The best aspect of the game has to be the detailed layout and realistic graphics. Graphics are normally made or break for a simulator game as if the graphics are bad, the game is simply not worth it. Coach Bus Simulator has seemingly worked hard on the graphics and it shows while you drive the car around the beautiful exterior setups. The roads, the traffic, and the bus stops are very realistic and you get the feel of what an actual bus driver would feel while playing the game. The fact that the game also informs you of the time with its day and night cycle is great as it adds another element of realism to the game.
The controls offered in the coach bus simulator are also very good. There are three kinds of controls available with a clutch system present as well for the driving geeks. The controls are great and it's nice to see that the bus control offered is also realistic. The size of a bus is huge and therefore, it's difficult to maneuver it around. The game incorporates this in the controls and you can easily lose out on control if you are driving too fast and look to make a steep turn. These are the little things that really improve the gaming experience and it's an ode to the makers of Coach Bus Simulator that they have thought about them while designing the game.
There are different routes available where you have to drive the passengers with the mileage along with the return also shown. You must make sure that you earn the most from each route so that you can build your fleet and also hire drivers to pick up extra cash by basically having more than one bus on the roads. To ensure that you pick the most of the money available, you would have to ensure that there is not even a small incident as the smallest of crashes can impact the mood of the passengers and result in a deduction of the fares. Similarly, you also would have to keep in mind the traffic rules as one minor violation would lead to a fine as well as earn your disapproval of the passengers.
