Gameplay of this Windows 8 car parking game app:
Like I said above the game play of this game app is flat simple; to park vehicles! It’s one of those easy to learn but hard to master type of game. The game controls are very simple, up arrow key to accelerate, down arrow key to reverse, left arrow key to go left, and right arrow key to go right. And the main objective of the game is don’t hit any obstacles weather cars, trucks, sports cars, traffic cones etc. and park the vehicles without hitting any obstacles. So, that you can clear the level with flying stars and a medal. Along with the objectives you can also collect coins and one ups for life, which are scattered here and there in the locations.
A good thing about this Windows 8 car parking game app is, each level location is different form each other. So, the locations are not repeated at all, and hence the game gives you different difficulties, and different good environment to play. That is you’ll travel from parking lots, through city streets and highways; all with random automatically controlled traffic.
Each level comes with different objectives. Some times you have to just park one car, and at other times two or more different cars, and some times even trucks. Some times you’ll be asked to cross the road with a high rush traffic. And at times, you’ll be given specific directions that you have to follow. The game is in 2D, and is shown from top camera view. The graphics and sound are pretty good. But it’s the game controls that I liked the most. The game controls are very fluid, making the car difficult to handle. There’s a very good synchronization between the control keys and the cars movements. Also the game difficulty that does the magic for this Windows 8 car parking game.
For each level, you’ll get 5 lives. Each time you hit something; one life gets reduced. But that is only applicable if you hit the road pavements and a car in your side of lane. If you hit any car of the wrong side lane, the game ends at the very moment, even if you are having lives, and the game starts from the beginning of the current level. This is the same if you’ve used up all your lives in a particular level.
Following is a screenshot of the level results:
There’s no time limit, to complete a level, so you can take all your time and finish the level, the right way. So, try it, test it, and if you liked it then you can always unlock the higher levels by spending few bucks. Which is what I think is worth.
