I love this game and it is a lot of fun to play again and again. The graphics are great, gameplay is super and it is definitely worth checking out. Unfortunately, the traffic light is not helpful and I wish there were more of a variety of power ups instead like ‘eminent domain’ where you could remove a house that has spawned in a spot that gums up traffic/blocks the ability to have a straight path and ‘renovation’ that would allow a rotation of a building/change of entrance into the buildings or to add a second entry. ‘Clown car’ that magically clears all the waiting pawns in one car pickup. Color zone where you could pick a few squares that would populate with one specific color when it would be time to spawn a house in that that color. Finally ‘work from home’ where there would be a pause on new workers for a span of 1 to a few days. I think those kinds of power ups would increase the ability to create different strategies and salvage a great game that too often falls apart with no solutions with the current power ups on hand - my best scores often seem to come from luck than strategy. And so some ways to bring in more strategy would keep me playing for many more hours.

I think the game is pretty entertaining and interesting. I love games where you get to build and design things, and it’s even better when those things are actually used! The one major change I’d make is to add some sort of free play mode. You could have multiple modes for it. You could have a mode where it’s just the base game but you have unlimited resources to play with, the ability to turn on and off the game over function, and a mode where you can place your own buildings. Heck, you could even have a high score for unlimited resource base game. Other than that, it would be better if the game just had more content. You can quickly “beat” all the levels in a day, then it’s just a game of high scores, and maybe some people like that, but it just gets old for me. Maybe you could unlock new levels that have different things? You could add train tracks as an obstacle, a train could pass through a predesignated path and vehicles have to wait for it. Idk, the point is the game lacks content. Idk how much money these games make, but I pay for Apple Arcade, so is like the games to be a little more than the normal free to play games. It feels like a free to play game that’s just not riddled with ads.

As Mini Metro’s successor I worried this game would either feel too similar or not similar enough. I didn’t want a fresh coat of paint on Mini Metro, nor did I want for the developers to reinvent the wheel. Mini Motorways is a fantastic middle ground between the mechanics I knew from Mini Metro and fresh ideas. With future updates this game could improve drastically. As it stands now, there are a few glitchy malfunctions or missing features to be wary of- sometimes traffic in my city ground to a standstill regardless of how many roads I added, modified, or deleted. The cars seem stuck in “shortest route” mode, rather than “fastest route” mode leading to pileups. I also found myself forgoing the traffic lights as they caused more problems than they solved. The game is also sorely lacking in a speed up time button- I have no doubt this will be solved in a future update but for now it makes the start of a game feel incredibly slow. The game feels in need of new goals or game modes to keep things feeling fresh, but for now the graphics and audio come off as very crisp and clean, the controls are intuitive and that’s enough to keep me playing over and over.

I found this game highly addictive especially as someone who loves city building games like simcity. Managing the traffic has a kind of zen quality that I find super calming. The visual language of the game is spot on with each location feeling different through thoughtful color selection without being too pastiche. I do wish there were just a few more options like one way streets or roundabouts(rotaries). I also miss the time lapse feature from mini metro to watch the growth of the city. Finally, the navigation logic of the cars is a bit tough to work with as it seems like they all go for the shortest route regardless of traffic. This I’m sure is the most processor intensive aspect of the game and is maybe why my battery drops 20% after playing it for 10 minutes... :) hopefully there’s a way to improve this too. Regardless, someone has been destroying the high scores and I would love to see what their strategies are (hopefully not cheating). Looking forward to playing this game over and over as they provide updates and improvements. In the meantime still a great time waster.

I enjoy this game a lot , coming from mini metro I actually enjoy this more. It has great potential to be 5 stars. The biggest issue with this game is how it goes out of its way to make things difficult/unbearable, I’ve had buildings pop up in tight corners and then houses pop up behind those buildings that become unreachable. Further into a game the traffic even if flowing is not fast enough to accommodate the supply being dropped not to mention how houses for buildings ends up on the far side of the map. Traffic light I’ve tried to accommodate but is useless, and when you need a motorway it mostly never is one of the two options. A sandbox mode with objectives would be great and then a free play mode with no risks would be too just like mini metro has, hopefully this is coming. A new road type would also be nice with a 4 lanes, one way roads and also a 3 and 5 lane with middle lane left turns. Maybe stop signs instead of traffic lights. This is a game about roads, transportation and logistics so hopefully the devs incorporate those things. Thanks for a great game with amazing potential.
