Monster Truck Rally was a monster truck racing game brought to us by the INTV Corp. The game is an unknown title for the NES. It's probably a good thing that the game was unknown, because it's a very low-quality game, as it's hard to control your truck, and most of the time, you'll either be crashing into obstacles or other cars, making it really tough to finish first. To be fair, barely anybody worked on the game, but they probably could have had a bigger development team. The graphics are pretty good considering they're all done by one person.

The music in the game composed by the infamous George "The Fat Man" Sanger is pretty good. You get uptempo rock tunes that go along with the game quite nicely. The only problem is that there is no in-game music, just sound effects. The Monster Menu song sounds similar to the in-game tune from Tecmo NBA Basketball which Sanger also worked on. George Sanger wrote MIDI files on Performer for the Macintosh, which he then gave to David Warhol to arrange and convert to the NES using his MIDI conversion tool and his sound driver.
