Junkyard Simulator is one of the many simulators published by PlayWay, known, among others, from the Vehicle Mechanic Simulator series. The app was developed by Rebelia Minigames, a Polish studio for which the Junkyard Simulator is a debut project.
We open the minigame as a fresh owner of a tiny junkyard. Our mission is to become a junk potentate. The task won’t be simple and will require a lot of difficult work.
Junkyard Simulator is a quite extensive but also forthcoming simulator. The users are tasked with the gathering of junk and preparing it to be able to sell it soon on. During the initial phases of the app, our funds are rather meagre, forcing us to perform most of the actions manually. This means tedious walks around the junkyard and having to throw the objects to the crusher one by one. However, as the time progresses, we amass funds for different machines that facilitate and speed up the process. For example, we can load the junk onto a cart and drive it to the macerator, then use a parcel machine to package it up in neat packs. Gigantic stuff (for example, vehicles) can be transported using an electromagnet.
Carrying, transporting, fragmenting, and packaging is only the beginning. Junk can be segregated, as the buyers are willing to pay more, but for a certain kind of the scrap. This task falls upon the user, as the machines cannot recognize the kind of the scrap, so we need to pay attention and divide the junk accordingly.
The app shares certain elements with Vehicle Mechanic Simulator series, mainly the graphics and design. As can be expected, during the app we are not subjected to cute sceneries, as we spent most of our time on the junkyard, among damaged vehicles and another machines.
