    yes it does that game is pretty fun but hard mostly due to the graphics seems like stuff blends in too much...

    This game seems to be a little different as it seemed impossible to have collisions in that game and the app desc. says its possible in the game.

    Who knows this could be the next Flight Control lol.

    Lol I was thinking the same thing. I originally had that in my OP but I edited it out when adding pics and stuff.

    Well.... it all seems a bit manic even on 'easy' but maybe it's just me??? You're right about collisions though - I have yet to have one, the cars all stop politely for each other - and then get gridlocked! No doubt I'm missing something, but there doesn't seem much scope with this game - just loads of little cars rushing about, or not, as the case may be?! :confused:

    Hey guys, this is my app :) Thanks for all the comments.

    That'd be amazing if it was the next Flight Control, haha.. but honestly Flight Control is a great game and I doubt this is anywhere near that. I really liked the concept so I thought I'd share it.

    As for collisions, they are only disabled in 'Sandbox' mode. I made the sandbox mode because I enjoyed just watching the app do its thing while I was bored at work. In Sandbox, the cars will stop politely for eachother. If they gridlock though, try clicking on the cars. It'll blow them up :) (dont you wish you had that feature when you're stuck in traffic?)

    Anyway, thanks for the feedback. If you have any tips on how to make it better please let me know.

    Edit: Oh ya, as for easy, it's really meant to be really really easy and boring. It's so people get an introduction to the game. Try Medium->Insane to get a feel for it all.

    I don't know if it's the ultimate.. it's my first foray into TM (I'm guessing that means Traffic Management?), so there are probably some features it's lacking. If you tell me what you'd like to see though I'll get it in the next couple releases.

    This looks cool, because I like TM games (Then again I guess everyone does according to the #1 paid app for about a month). Does anyone have it yet, and impressions? I might check this out later..

    Let me know what you think once you try it out.. if you guys can get me a list of features you'd like I'll make sure they're in the next builds.

    Good idea, fun/challenging, has lots of potential.

    First thing I noticed was no sounds.
    -some acceleration sounds
    -crash/explosion/skidding sounds

    Also, there is a pause button, but no way to go back to main menu/end a game.
    No way to end a sandbox game except to close the app?

    In the app description I see you said more maps and cars will be coming, very nice :)

    I'm trying to figure out where I can get sounds from.. if all else fails, I'll try and record them myself haha.

    As for the rest of your comments, I'll make sure that they're in the next release. I just put an update out last night to remove the restriction of firmware 2.2.1 (that was my mistake). I'll put another one out by the end of this weekend adding those features and I'll do my best to get some sounds.. I also have another idea for a feature you may like.

    Thanks for supporting the app! :)

    Oh man, that would be awesome.

    Off the top of my head, here's what I'm thinking of for sounds:

    background music loop
    accident crash
    car acceleration
    some type of cheering (for when the user gets a high score)
    random ambient noises

    I'd like to be able to give you some credit though if you do any of this.. do you have a webpage you'd like me to link to from the credits screen?
