In Bus Simulator 17's campaign mode, the player will have to fulfill objectives and missions. Most of these missions will be trips where you have to leave the bus depot, pick up passengers and take them to their destination. The first missions are easy, but later the game even includes travel between cities.
What's fun about Bus Simulator 17 is the need to do everything right. Crossed the red light? lose points! Missed the stop? more points lost. Bus Simulator 17, like other driving simulators are not racing games. So, no rush.
The game has good graphics and it is possible to adjust the look so that it works even on the most modest of smartphones. The number of commands is large, with the possibility of using flashers, mirrors and much more. However, all this ends up polluting the screen with many buttons.
The GPS on the inside of the panel is well positioned and it indicates your route. There are several camera angles and at any time the player can swipe the central part of the screen to see, for example, if all passengers have boarded.
The game is completely free and offline. However, the ads are a little annoying, as they are active throughout the game, further polluting the screen (already full of buttons). The solution is to play with the internet turned off and enjoy the game's travels. Fun for the campaign mode, Bus Simulator 17 also has a good complement, the online multiplayer mode. In this mode, players compete to see who makes the most trips without committing infractions.
