    Name: Car Mania
    Developer: Origin8
    Price: 1$/0,79€
    Size: 8,9 MB
    Version Reviewed: 1.01​
    System versyion needed: 2.2 (or later), 3.0 for in-game music selection.

    What Is Car Mania?

    Car Mania Is a game, that is simular to Flight Control and Harbour Master.
    But here you must drive cars to the garage with the same color as the car.
    There are fixed Paths for the cars to drive on. (Roads!)
    You must try not to let the cars crash each other or the train on the last map. If there is a crash, your Rage bar will get abit fuller, when it is full, you have lost the game. The Rage bar will also fill if you let a car go in the wrong garage or if you let cars stand still for a long time by tapping on them (wich will make them stand still) or letting them wait for you to finish the Road works (And icon that appears on the road that will stop cars and that you must tap on to make it slowly go away). If a car goes in the right garage, you get a happy driver! With these happy drivers you can unlock new maps and game modes.


    What has Car Mania got?

    Car Mania has got 3 Maps (4 with 1.02 update), 3 game modes (Survival,Road Rage and Time Attack ), about 5 different cars, a nice train that destroys everything in its way and Open Feint.

    The Main Menu

    Car Mania Has got a simple and smooth Main menu with:
    -Map selection
    -Gamemode selection
    -Go! button (starts new game)
    -information to the game mode
    -list of your total happy drivers number
    -Open Feint button
    -Origin 8 button (shows all of Origin8's apps)
    -scores button
    -a button to select music from your music library
    -and a help button

    all pressed into the small resolution of the iPod's screens



    The controlls

    The controlls in Car Mania are quite simple, although sometimes they don't respond the right way. (Sometimes I had problems telling the cars wich way to go).
    You only have to tap on a car and drag your finger along the road to the right colored garage. That may sound simple to you, but with about 10 cars on the screen that can get wuite hard. Unfortunatley the conrolls don't use multi touch so that makes thing abit harder.

    To stop a car, you just tap on it! You will se a small sighn on the roof of the vehicel.

    To stop the Road works, tap on the Road works sighn that will appear on the Road.

    Meet the city!


    Graphics
    Car Mania has got some nice polished comic-style 2D graphics. The animations of the Menu and in the game are just perfect! You can even see the clouds!

    Audio
    There sisn't alot of Audio, but the stuff that there is fits to the game! If you don't like the music of the game, you can always listen to your own music! (you can slect the music in the main menu! (iPhone OS 3.0 is needed))

    Final Thoughts

    Car Mania is a good game, but still has some tiny problems. If you like Flight Controll or Harbour Master, then you will probably also like this game!

    I wont show you a screenshot of the Train! That would take away the fun of unlocking all the maps in the game!
