Drive Google Earth's Monster Milktruck

Monster Milk Truck
Screen Capture

Google Earth's Monster Milktruck game was originally written in 2008 to showcase the capabilities of Google Earth; that version is no longer supported by Google. It was a quick and entertaining game that enabled players to kill a little time and do some Google Earth fantasy exploring.

There was no object to this game. The browser buttons simply controlled a 3D milk truck as it zoomed around Google Earth.

The truck drove right through 3D buildings but bounced off mountains and other terrain. Every once in a while, a voice bubble popped up from the truck with comments.

The Milktruck, Relaunched

In 2015, Google resurrected Monster Milk Truck to the delight of virtual milk truck drivers everywhere. Like the original, the game requires you to download and install both Google Earth and a plugin. Simply use the buttons to accelerate and navigate. Typing a destination in the search box takes you there; a few presets whisk you off to such places as San Francisco, Whistler, Mount Everest, Tokyo, and Pismo with just a click.
