Car Mania from Origin8 - Submitted!

While plenty of you are still wrapped up in Sentinel 2: Earth Defense, here's something a little different from us at Origin8. Not an alien in sight! We couldn't bring ourselves to leave out the explosions, though...

Oh !@*?*! It's rush hour and tempers are flaring as the city heads towards gridlock.

Take control of the traffic with a touch in Car Mania, a game that's jammed full of finger-twisting casual action.

Steer the drivers to their destinations while avoiding road rage - or set up a spate of 'accidents' that'll be sure to clear the streets!

•Intuitive controls - draw each vehicle's path with your finger; tap to stop and go.
•Keep commuters moving and in one piece - delays and crashes cause the road rage meter to rise!
•Juggle a variety of cars, trucks and motorbikes, each with different speeds and capabilities.
•Watch out for road works or you'll get in a jam!
•Play across three gorgeous maps with distinct layouts and unique challenges.
•Go for the top score in a fast and furious round of Time Attack, or play Survival mode and see how long you can keep the city moving.
•Want to let off some stream? Try Road Rage mode where pile ups mean points. Happy wrecking!
•With full online high scores and unlockable achievements using OpenFeint, there's always an excuse for just one more go.
•Music & sound effects by Earcom
•Ipod Music Library access (for OS3.0+ users only)
Car Mania has been in submission for a couple of days now, so expect it soon at the $0.99/£0.59 price point. We'll have a gameplay video for you as soon as our art guy isn't drowning under [classified]; in the mean time, here's a couple of shots of explosions that didn't make it onto our website. Enjoy!

Edit: video's out!

I've been playing Car Mania, and it's really fun casual game. It's a nicely produced game that should appeal to people.

Looks similar to the delivery missions in Fruit Juice Tycoon. Is it like that at all?

I just played it today and it is really addictive. From what it seems, it's like Flight Control (I think. I've never actually played that game).
