Awesome Game!

I have been playing this game for a month now! I’m legit obsessed I’m pretty sure I just beat it. Reading the other reviews before I bought it I was nervous. Don’t listen to the other reviews it is a great game, people say it needs an undo button but that would make this game completely pointless and way to easy! I think this game is awesome, can’t wait for more levels!!!

One great game but one great problem

This is quite an entertaining game, but I would like to have one improvement. I, as other players, would like to have some sort of undo button. It believe it will greatly enhance gameplay, for one minor mistake can create a mess. Without an undo button. Thank you for reading this.

Great little puzzle

Very challenging at times, especially as I want to make my interchanges as efficient as possible!

Good but needs improvements

- some levels can not be solved (64, 78) - undo function would be helpful - more levels with different challenges

It has it’s quirks

It has it’s quirks like small interface and no undo but is one of the best $2.99 I’ve spent on a game. As long as you are careful and patient you’ll be fine. I’ve played many levels over and over to improve my overall score, right now over 21k.

Terrible interface, waste of time and money

It's impossible to play this game without constantly engaging the notification center. Had to turn off the control center for the same reason. Despite the terrible controls, there's only an option to clear a whole map, no undo. I don't know how much thought the developer put into the user experience, but my experience indicates that it's very little.

So much potential

This is a great game but can be very frustrating when you are trying to build something and the controls are in the wrong place and you cannot remove certain parts of the road you have to clear the entire map which is frustrating. Also for iPhone X users when you’re trying to build at the bottom because of the sensitive area it keeps thinking you want to switch apps and that is just frustrating. Plenty of potential but this game might be just better in just an iPad due to size.

Love the Idea, Hate the Execution

The idea is really good, however it is missing some key quality of life features, like an undo button.

Drive Past This One

The graphics are simple, not in a good way. It’s difficult to be precise drawing roads and bridges. Good idea but the execution here is awful. This was a wasted $3.

Almost Un-Playable

Great concept, poorly executed. I’ve never played a game that needs an “undo” button as much as this one. Do not buy unless your fingers are skeleton-skinny. Also, in what universe are right-hand-drive and left-hand drive roads mixed in the same community? “Freeway”-land is the only one I know.

Great game

Thoroughly enjoyed this game. Hope they do more like this!

Lost opportunity

There is no guidance or instruction whatsoever on how controls work in the game. There is no ability to forecast traffic patterns. The interface is clumsy and very difficult to use. This game could have been so much better.

Stuck on level 1

I emailed the maker regarding about my issue of not able to advance. Tapping map after completing and intersection have no effect. I’ve been tapping around for 30 minutes and still no luck of finding a way to move onto level 2. Will give better stars when resolved.

Undo would make it a five star

I get that not having undo is probably part of the challenge. However, at a certain point, it’s no longer fun. If there was a game out there exact same as this but had an undo and a zoom feature I’d play it over this.

Great strategy game but add an undo button

Great concept, graphics are ok but that nots the point. Add an undo button please

Where is the undo button?!!

This is an awesome premise for a game, and it would have easily gotten 5 stars if it wasn’t for one seemingly obvious flaw: THERES NO UNDO BUTTON. The pain of having to erase everything after one simple mistake creates a frustration that overshadows any fun had while playing this game, so much so that I usually just quit playing after 10 minutes. Please fix this issue.

Almost great, lacking still

I want to love this game and keep thinking maybe it’s me making mistakes. No, it’s the game development that needs to improve. There’s no way to keep straight lines and that increases your chances to screw up an otherwise great map. There is NO undo. PRETTY BASIC FEATURE. The logic is screwed up in that you could drop a route for multiple connections but it erases your previous connection and fails to allow the other traffic to connect. (Loop that would allow access to multiple routes by flow is denied.) I’m not the only one complaining about these things. They need to be fixed or the game becomes frustrating and eventually unplayable. (Soon to be deleted)

For the love of all that’s holy, the game needs an undo button

Great game, but it really needs a way to undo mistakes. Hard to draw sometimes and end up missing where I want to go. Add an undo and I’d give it five stars

Addictive and Fun

It’s frustratingly hard at times and I’ve never wished for an undo button more in my life, but the challenge is the fun part. Would love to see more levels in the future.

Fun Game

I’ve had this game about 24 hours and love it! I would like to see an “undo” button. In real life, even the best layer plans go astray. If you make an error and realize it, you should be able to correct it and move forward instead of having to restart.

Why did this download

I didn’t not authorize the download of this game. I pressed cancel when the Apple Pay popped up but it downloaded it anyways. What the heck?!?

Amazing concept, fatal flaw

I don’t often write reviews but this game compelled me to because it’s an amazing idea with an enormous flaw: It needs an undo button so badly. It’s very, very easy to make a mistake, especially because the logic of where it ends a road and where it thinks you’re still drawing is a little inconsistent. An undo button would make this game incredible fun. As it is, it’s insanely frustrating.

Great game with one fatal flaw

Very fun concept, but where’s the ‘erase’ button!? Nothing worse than finishing up a complicated map, then making one mistake and having to start over. Please fix!

Great idea, execution lacks a bit

Good concept, but the lack of an undo button (which can’t be hard to implement) and the finicky nature of connecting roads detracts from the experience

Everything I wanted from Mini Metro

Except the bugs. Oh, the bugs. A but more polish and this would be perfect

Needs Undo Button

Great game but needs an undo button. One wrong click and I have to clear my entire map.

Good concept, but poorly executed.

Like many other reviews, the concept of this app is interesting. However, the app lacks some basic features that would make the experience more enjoyable. This includes an undo button, the ability to draw road segments that snap to a grid, and a way to change the overpass/underpass hierarchy on already placed roads. It would also be good to know some scale for efficiency. I have no idea how my score ranks. The tutorial could be more thorough too and walk users through various road/interchange configurations so they understand what might work better for certain puzzles.

I will never stop

I’ve been playing for hours. Some feedback, when drawing a road from the top of the screen it always pulls down the notification page on iPhone. Sometimes my roads turn into ramps without touching the ramp button. My favorite game. Thanks

Nice idea but bad execution.

I immediately bought it as soon as I saw the concept. It’s fun to create optimal layouts. But the game suffers from so many problems which are down right annoying. 1. In iPhoneX if you try to draw a road from bottom then the ‘switcher tab’ opens. 2. No undo button for a game that requires lot of precision. 3. No erase road button. 4. No options?? Or I can’t find it so far honestly. 5. What does the stimulation tells? I have no idea if I did a good job or worth less job. Please fix these!

Needs some refinement.

I enjoy this game, but find the chunky graphics make it hard to create efficient layouts. If the roads were narrower, it would give you more room to draw in ramps, etc.

Pretty good but

Needs and undo/erasing feature that doesn’t delete everything

Defenetly worth my money

This game is so much fun! It takes serious strategy and brain power while also being so much fun! Even once you beat the game you can always go back and make your roads better! All around amazing game. The game maker should be proud :)

Really great but one issue

This game is really great and definitely worth the money but has 1 issue with tapping (don’t know if it’s the developers fault). 1. When I try to make a road from one of the entrances at the top, sometimes the dashboard will pull down from the top which can be annoying. 2. Sometimes when I go to hit the raise/lower ramp button the game will register the tap as making a road down to the bottom of the screen instead which is pretty annoying but easy to get over. Still great though. (Also undo button please thank you)

Can’t tap on map

I can not click the map to change routes but I can click the same spot for simulation. This needs to be fixed. Will delete message once fixed.

Very nice!

Very nice and innovative game. Only thing extra I would like to see is the ability to save and edit your designs. It would also be cool if there was a leaderboard for each section or some kind of ranking system so you can know how well your "total efficiency" stacks up.

So close to greatness...

Desperately needs an undo button. And the drawing controls are imprecise and frustrating on my 7 screen. Level and game design is otherwise great

One of the best games on the iPhone

This is an open-ended puzzle games. Each puzzle has multiple (infinite?) solutions. But the fun comes from optimizing your solutions, making them better and better. At times it is incredibly frustrating, but the frustration is well calibrated and frankly adds to the appeal. I’ve been scouring the Internet to read about highway engineering in order to do better at this game. That’s how well thought out it is.

Great

Game is great needs an undo or erase feature. And hopefully it gets more levels added soon I’ve beaten all the levels already.

Worthless without undo

I should have paid more attention to the other reviews. There is no smoothing to the drawing of freeways so if you don’t have a steady finger you’re going to be connecting freeways in all the wrong places. Since there is no undo, you have to clear the whole level and start again. I have yet to successfully create an overpass because of this problem. More frustrating than fun.

I can't stop playing this game!

Like other reviewers, I knew at first sight this game was something I'd been seeking for a long time, and that was definitely a correct impression. I play every night, by now I've only got a couple more PICs to earn. Dunno what I'll do when I earn all the max scores, probably just clear my board and start again 😝

My Calling

I love road simulators, but I was never able to find one for free. At this point I don’t care, but I found this app. Amazing concept, and I’m completely interested in the game. I love the fact that you have to build your own roads and make them fluid. It gets me all tingly inside, unlike those other edgy games that make you cringe.

Solid Gold

traffic simulator.

Amazing game, but...

Amazing game, but has some frustration factors... #1. Needs an undo button... #2. Even with a large phone, this game make me feel like I have giant fingers... impossible to draw controlled lines/routes... and without an undo button, this cause me to reset map after map, just trying to complete a single one... but other than that, an amazing game, and I hope the 1st two issues are fixed

More Levels

You should add a feature where you can create your own levels, then hit “send” and you can review them!

One of a kind! (EVEN BETTER WITH LATEST UPDATE!)

UPDATE: The newest update is GREAT. It gave us a feature we never knew we wanted, and that’s CommuterCam. You can track a random car on its way to wherever. Although I do have some suggestions though: > Maybe a car selector or arrows at the bottom to switch cars? > A fast forward button for when it’s just traveling along. Minor suggestions though, and its a great way to find what parts of the game you need to work on! —- I’ve been searching for one of these games for a long, long time. I always have loved making infrastructure and seeing how things would turn out. And this app satisfies that need perfectly. From the interchange building to the accurate simulation, this app is totally worth the $2.99. It’s frustrating, but at the same time interesting enough to keep playing, sometimes for hours to see what design is the most efficient. I’ve been on the App Store for ~4 years now, and I haven’t seen anything like it. If you like building and simulations, this is the app for you. Also, there is NO IN-APP PURCHASES and NO PAYWALLS! What a great game. Some suggestions for the developers: > maybe add an erase road tool? It’s really easy to forget where you’re placing a road, and if you’re far in, it’s annoying to start over. > Level Editor! It’d make it so much more fun to make a level and share it to see if others can get the best score. Speaking of score, > Leaderboard? A leaderboard could give you a sense of how good your interchange is compared to others, and motivates you to play more to find an even more efficient solution. That’s all, thanks for this incredible game!

Like the app but would Love an update.

This app is great. the only problem is that I finished it in a matter of days. I would love more levels. The addition of traffic lights or stop signs would be interesting and would add a lot of gameplay. but please, MORE LEVELS!

Good Idea Okay Execution

How is there not an undo button? Its almost impossible to keep my finger straight while making a road. Or at least a delete button. Really needs some work but i like the idea.

Best game!

Add undo button!

Very nice game

This is a good game. Some improvements would make it a great game. An undo button would work wonders. Mostly because even on my 7plus screen the actual construction icon is hidden below my finger tip not always where I thought it was and causing mis-connects of roads. Also touching road signs can be mistaken as an attempt to build a road there. UNDO IS A MUST. Nice to have would be an erase road function. Now for the game play. It is excellent with the exception of the above issues. I do like the expanding and increasingly difficult maps and challenges. Definitely gets you thinking out of the box. This quickly shows you it is not as simple as drawing a few lines and connecting points. Star rating is due to frustration after making an elaborate solution only to have touch mis read and causing errors. If developers make small tweaks and functional undo then this is a top notch app.

Awesome but needs undo

Super fun, unique game. Definitely needs undo or an improvement to the drawing so that you don’t have to redraw from scratch so often. Just a single undo step would be enough. Otherwise, brilliant and mesmerizing to watch. Wish I could export my “world” as a screen saver :)
