Discovered John Cooney’s I Love Traffic off Armor Games’ official blog back in April this year – a a short 20-level puzzler combining elements of twitch gaming, quick thinking, pattern matching and estimation skills. I Love Traffic is refreshingly addictive for a game that contains no violence and has a soothingly pleasant colour palette to boot.
Inadequate allocation and (occassionally) criminally-neglient misplacment await you in each level as you control ALL the traffic lights in an attempt to prevent congestion while maintaining a perfect 0% accident rate at the same time.
One of the more sensible road designs
By controlling when each traffic light change from red to green and vice versa, you’ll attempt to squeeze as many vehicles across one or more junctions with every change of the traffic lights to beat the time limit and complete each level. If you think that juggling multiple traffic lights and atrocious road designs was already bad enough, the random appearance of speeding police cars, slow-moving buses and long trailers will definitely drive you bonkers. But then again, there’s nothing like seeing a lumbering trailer clear the junction moments before a police car streaks past.
The first ten levels are essentially confidence-building exercises – later levels especially the final level will really test your estimation skills and multi-tasking skills.Cars Flash Games
