Controls
Menu: Z to start game.

Game: Left-click on trucks to move in the direction the truck is facing. Right-click on trucks to rotate them.

Game over: Z to restart.

Mechanics
Each level ends when you have used the trucks to collect every piece of rubbish. Click on a truck to move it in the direction it's facing. It will stop when it hits the edge of the screen, or another truck.

Commentary
​Puzzle design is super difficult. But this game was a lot of fun to make! Designing the trucks and the rubbish kept me interested over the month, then in the last few days I finally figured out where I was going with it. I bumped over into November because of a number of commitments and other noisy stuff, but I'm very happy with how it came out. Maybe I will make more levels eventually? I'm sorry if it's very boring to people who do lots of puzzles!

Needs a bit of work. If the truck is in a corner and you tap on him, the number of moves increases greatly.

Also RIGHT-CLICK is not friendly game key for most internet browsers. Going full-screen the mouse pointer seems trapped in the top-left-hand corner for Firefox.

Suggest you make it a key like (O) for last selected truck. Either that or create a selector with arrow keys and use (O) and (X) normally.

@dw817 Thanks for the feedback! You're right, I forgot how right-click would not be too usable in browsers. :/

Dunno about the Firefox mouse compatibility, that is probably not something I can fix. I can confirm it happens for me as well, though. Probably I should just stop using unsupported features, to be fair!

I had a keys-based selector implemented, and then took it out because it was too confusing to explain two ways to do everything. But I can put it back pretty easily. Perhaps if I have time in the next few weeks.

Thanks again for playing!

This was a cool little puzzle game! I'd love to know what's considered "par" for each level... 50 moves is fine, right? Yeah, it's probably fine.

@nextlevelbanana I think I got the last ones in <15 but to be fair I did design them. :D Hope you enjoyed it! Thanks for playing!
