I Love Traffic

Posted by Sravan | June 26, 2009 .

Not really. But the Armor Games website has a simple game called I Love Traffic which I recommend to all the fans of the boy who never grew up. I have been playing this for more than a couple of hours and have stopped only to tell you about it.

The idea is to control traffic using a set of traffic signals that are controllable by the user. The objective in each level is to clear X cars within Y seconds. There are cars of three sizes and of a few different speeds. A simple idea but it gets more and more difficult as you go to higher levels. I reached the 20th Level and have been stuck there for more than 30 mins.

Update: I won! Proof here.

It is not a game with great graphics (though they are neat); just what we typically call a “Flash game”. The foot-tapping music often pushes you to move faster, pushes you to make an accident.

The only trouble I had was with the counters (cars and seconds left) being on the bottom right corner. I prefer them on the top right corner.

As one moves up the levels, the game is no longer in the player’s deft controls but also in his or her understanding of probability. How good do you think are the odds of clearing a level with turning all signals green and biting your nails?

I liked this game especially because it goes against the usual kinds of destroying everything within sight or pushing for greater speeds blindly. It is about controlling, averting a danger, and doing it now.

You can download the 1 MB game and play it offline from here.
