What's New in Version 1.2.1
General performance enhancements
The ol' Stoplight game in a subway?
You know you've seen them. Games in which the cars are coming from all directions in a four way stop and you need to effectively manage the stoplight so as to get the cars flowing through the intersection as painlessly as possible. Well this game takes that basic concept to a big multilne subway with multiple points where the lines cross over one another. You'll need to quickly tap the switches so as to get the subways on their way with minimal delays or else the riders will get too steamed and the game will end.
Any time a train is delayed at a switch the satisfaction meter will slowly drain and once empty the game is over. Every time a subway reaches one of the ends, you get a point and the satisfaction meter will go back up a tiny increment. While things will tend to get more hectic over time anyways, ever once in a while you'll see a flashing RUSH HOUR during which you'll have a burst of extra cars to contend with for a brief time.
The game comes with 4 different maps all accessble from the get go and ranging in difficulty from mild to insane.
How long can you keep your passengers happy?
Pretty fun, some glitches with gamecenter and stuff but on the whole it plays well. Good concept, but there's a pretty clear point where the game just tries to destroy you and there's not much you can do. The jams at switches get inevitable and your life bar just drains.
