I can't recommend this game enough. I found it in the "New Apps" section today. It's a lot of fun. There is so much to do in the game. It's well worth the download.

This game is well worth a look. The core mechanics are different and fun. The world really seems alive almost like a sim though we are just talking about a parking AI... Nevertheless it keeps things interesting. There is also some strategy with planning a route.

With two in game currencies though I haven't decided weather the monetization is too cruel but I can say the timers are not bad at all. The graphics and overall design is also rather charming.

Hi!
I am one of the developers behind Meter Maid City. I would like to announce that we have a new update in the app store that has a new high-score game mode and a better starting flow. This it the first of several weekly-ish updates that will add new content and will culminate in a pre-holidays update in which we hope to introduce something BIG!

Meter Maid City is a pretty complex game, with a lot of freedom, and we have stuggled to introduce all of the various concepts without overwhelming players too early.

It's always tough balancing tutorials and gameplay in games with lots of new concepts like Meter Maid City, and during development the pendulum swung between tons of handholding and none at all before finally settling somewhere in the middle.

In the weeks that Meter Maid City has been out in the app store the response from players has been great. Once people get into it they seem to really enjoy it, which is fantastic! However we have noticed that a lot of players seem to stop after when they complete basic training and they never even make it to the real meat and potatoes of the game! We believe that they are getting overwhelmed with new concepts that are getting in the way of just enjoying the game.

This update is meant to rectify that and help players 'over the hump' so to speak.

So, If anyone in this forum has played Meter Maid City and quit after basic training I encourage you to download the new update and give it a spin!

And for anyone who hasn't tried Meter Maid City. It's free! Go give it a try.

by the way, I noticed that nobody has posted the Trailer, well here it is

This is great fun! It's a bit of a strange concept, but it works really well. I highly recommend it, and as the Dev said it's free so it's easy to try out.
