Mini Motorways is a game combining strategy, puzzle and simulation game elements. This title was developed by the independent studio Dinosaur Polo Club from New Zealand's Wellington; the team is famous for its warmly received Mini Metro.

Mechanics

In Mini Motorways the action is shown in top-down view. The game offers a number of locations inspired by real cities (such as Los Angeles, Beijing, Tokyo, Munich or Moscow), and our task is to create a network of roads with as much capacity as possible. Covering the "concrete jungle" with a network of streets providing access to all the most important places and building crossroads with traffic lights is no longer enough after some time, and we have to build flyovers and bridges or collision-free crossroads, for example. In addition, metropolitan areas are constantly growing, so the key to success is also careful planning of future projects and thinking "ahead". As we progress, we unlock various improvements that enable us to meet the growing expectations and needs of motorized citizens.

Technical aspects

Mini Motorways features simple, almost minimalist graphics; the whole thing is clear, so we can quickly see the situation on our roads. The devs provide us with several image modes that enable us to adjust the appearance of the game to the needs of people affected by color blindness or even to playing at night. The fun is accompanied by calm, relaxing music by Rich Vreeland - an American composer using the pseudonym Disasterpeace, whose portfolio includes soundtracks for such productions as Hyper Light Drifter and Fez.
