Parking Panic!

alright...i took the plunge. i spent a whole dollar on this...

i like it....i dont know what it is about the idea of parking cars for a video seems fun to me...but it is.

my first impressions of the game are pretty darn good.....its not just parking cars(yes it is).....its like goin on an adventure. to a parking spot....you start out with a nice begining level where you basically do U-turn into a parking spot. in the later levels(im only on 10 right now) the levels get bigger...big enough to where it doesnt fit on the screen...it scrolls over when you reach the end of the screen. not too sure about how many levels there are tho...

it uses the accelerometer to steer with gas on the bottom right corner and brake on the bottom left. now ive said i dont like accelerometer controls before but in this case....it works really good. like it says on one of the reviews...."controls are really smooth"....they really are.

theres another game like this one called parkit...which i also liked...but this one is a nice step up from that. sorry to parkit...

so if you liked parkit er parking cars...er just a nice casual game to kill time with...you should get it!

if the developer is in the house id like to know exactly how many levels there are....AND....what kind of updates are in store for this game?

just throwin in my 2 pennies...

In fact I did.


However, I could not play it enough to write the usual details.

Anyway, I like the gameplay itself. Tilt to turn, one pedal to go forward and another one to go backward (you can see the pedals in the screenshot above).

The middle bar is your life one. If you slightly hit anything it's a crash, you lose life and you have to start the level again. Once the game is over you have to start from level 1 again.

I've played about 7 levels but I don't have any idea how much different levels are available.

One strange thing is the lack of a high score board, not a single one is recorded as far as I could see.

In resume, it's a nice game but it seems incomplete... I'll play it again ASAP.

It seems similar to Park It!. Looks more colourful though.

I thought all sane humans hate parallel parking. I could buy this game for my wife as a joke gift. Just holding the game would likely make her palms sweat. Well, ok, maybe mine too.
