Description:

Have you ever been stuck in traffic and wished you could do something to fix it? In Mini Motorways, the city’s traffic problems are in your hands. 

From the makers of Mini Metro, Mini Motorways is a game about drawing the roads that drive a growing city. Build a road network, one road at a time, to create a bustling metropolis. Redesign your city to keep the traffic flowing, and carefully manage upgrades to meet the changing demands. How long can you keep the cities of the world moving?

History:

Mini Motorways is the second game from Dinosaur Polo Club and it’s taking the passengers of Mini Metro to the roads! We were thrilled by how much our fans enjoyed redesigning subway maps from all around the world in Mini Metro, so for our next game we wanted to explore how we could bring this minimalist approach to other familiar transportation challenges. Traffic congestion is something that many people experience daily, and road network design is a complex and ever-changing problem as cities continue to grow. Mini Motorways puts this problem in the hands of the player, and lets them use their creativity to build a better road network.

Features:

  • Dynamically growing cities that make every game unique!
  • Stunning maps visually inspired by cities all around the world for you to explore and a photo mode that lets you share GIFs and snapshots of the cities you design.
  • A variety of upgrades help you meet the demands of your ever-expanding road network.
  • Different colour modes to choose from, including colourblind and night modes.
  • Daily and weekly challenges that put a refreshing spin on gameplay and let you compete with your friends on the leaderboards.
  • Responsive, relaxing soundtrack that grows with your city, created by the wonderful Disasterpeace.
