Parking Mania is a great game from the developers of the Electronic Arts company, which will not only help you to have a great leisure time, but also teach you to park a variety of cars in parking lots and on narrow streets. Of course, the training will be figured but even this can make you understand the basic principles of parking regardless of whether you run a passenger car, bus or truck with a long semi-trailer. To obtain the desired result is important not to hurry up and figure out when and which way to turn the steering wheel.
ControllingControlling in the game is very simple and easy and thanks to the setting everyone can choose what he or she wants. The movement back and forth is anyway controlled by the slider located by default on the right side of the screen. The steering is by default performed with the accelerometer but you can set the steering wheel on the screen and choose whether you will steer it, or drag to the left and to the right. Also in the settings it is possible to change the layout of the controls in the mirror position (Wheel on left) which will appeal to all the left-handers.
Game featuresThe game provides 220 levels in total, and each of them steadily grows more and more difficult in sequence. The free version makes only 16 races available for you but they are definitely enough to understand whether you want to play Parking Mania and purchase it, or not. At first, everything is pretty easy. You will need to park your car on a fairly spacious place, and nothing but the accuracy is required on your part. With each new level it becomes more and more difficult to operate the vehicle. The streets will become narrower, sharp corners will grow in number, and after a while you will find yourself in a realistic situation with moving on the city roads cars and motorcycles.
In such situations, before you start moving you will need to make sure that you do not create an emergency situation. You should drive on the road very carefully and only if you are truly given way to do this. In the event of a collision with other road users the game will be over, and you will have to start the level from the very beginning. However, there is no need to be afraid of other drivers. They may even move up or back out if you act without rushing. The distance that you have to overcome will also increase with each next level.
ResumeIf you touch a car standing in the parking lot, you will hear the sound of the alarm and the affected car will start flashing with emergency lights. It is clear that no one will turn a blind eye to this mess even if you steer the wheel of a police car, and you will be given a ticket. Besides, you lose your a star or more. The graphics in the game are of cartoon style and designed quite accurately. The sound of the game is wonderful and consists of music, honks and the sound of a running engine.
