Mini Motorways by Dinosaur Polo Club is a fun game from Apple Arcade that has you building roads in a city to get cars to their destination to take a pick up people from the buildings. It’s a little more complicated than that, but that is the basic goal of the game.
During the game you start with on house and one building of the same color that you have to connect by essentially drawing the road with your finger. As you play other buildings, some the same color and some different, will pop up at random. You have to connect the buildings to roads that you create and draw. Along the way you might need a bridge to span a river, a highway, or even a traffic light to help with this task.
More and more buildings and houses will appear as you play, making the roads busier and busier. This is when the highway and or traffic light can come in handy.
The game takes place during the days of the week and every Sunday you are given more road pieces and one extra (bridge, more road, traffic light, or maybe a highway).
You goal is to get as many cars to the buildings as possible. The game ends when one of the buildings overflows with passengers for the cars.
Gameplay is very easy and addictive, once you get the hang of the game. In my first impression tweet I send out I compared the game to Lemmings. The cars are like the Lemmings and you are building the pathways for them to reach their goal.
There are 6 city “levels” to choose from. I don’t know if they are really levels, because I found no difference between them in difficulty level. Each city has a goal of 250 cars reaching their destination. Once you do that there are no additional goals and you are playing for your own personal goals. I wish there were more goals per city to add more challenge. I finished all of the city goals in a couple of hours and now I just play to see how high my score can be. Hopefully goals and more cities will be added in an update.
The graphics of the game are simple and clean. There are no details in the environment, but they aren't really needed.
Overall, I really like Mini Motorways. If you are an Apple Arcade subscriber it is worth trying it out.
