Before you ask, no, you won't learn how to replace your busted clutch or how to find that squeaky sound underneath your car- it's not that type of game. What you will find, however, is a great puzzle game that is a breath of fresh air compared to the thousands of other puzzle games out there.

The premise is simple: you own a mechanic shop, and people bring you cars (problems) to fix. You get a short blurb to tell you a bit of information, but the amount of information that you get can vary- going from "Hey, my battery is dead, can you fix it?" to "Something squeaks under the car. Fix it." Your goal is to find and fix the problem while trying not to run out of cash- you get an extra amount of cash for each order, and if that runs out, you can ask the bank for a loan that you have to pay back. To be honest, though, if you're careful about what you buy and aren't replacing stuff willy-nilly, you ought to be fine. Just remember- fix it if you can, or replace it outright if you need to.

And don't worry about losing parts- the game will not only make you remove items in order off the car, but it will also force you to put them back in order, as well- there's no need to worry about missing any parts- unless it's something like a starter or a plastic engine cover, but even then it won't let you mark it as done until the car is completely put back together.

Once each objective is met, you'll be able to mark the car as "fixed" and send it on its way.

There are over seventy problems in the base game alone- plus another twenty in the DLC pack that comes free with the game. There's another free DLC pack launching later this month with another pack of problems, and that will add even more value to it.

The problems I have with this game are actually somewhat slight- for one, some of the detection on th orders can be really, REALLY picky. If it tells you to replace the right front tire, then your new wheel must go on the right front- you can't just move a used wheel from the other side of the car onto there, because it's not explicitly a new wheel. It's smart to take big orders a step at a time for this reason- work on one region of the car at a time, and replace everything needed- or make notes as to what the busted parts were. There is nothing more swear-worthy in this game than completing a huge order, but being unable to continue because you didn't put some tiny part back in its right space- and then you have to pull the whole blasted thing apart to hunt for it.

The only other complaint I have is that you will want to hit the radio with a wrench and kill it dead after a half-hour of its awful music. If you need music, bust out an iPod or turn on an actual radio, because this one will make you want to take it out to the test track and drive over it a few dozen times. Would it have been too much to ask to get a simple MP3 player in there or something?

All in all, though, if you're looking for a puzzle game that isn't something about jewels, you'll enjoy this- especially if you have an interest in cars.

This game is brilliant. gives you some understanding, and lets you freeplay around the cars.
Camera is a little bad at times but you will develop your own techniques to counter that.

Also alot of good and free addons, thats a big plus!

Highly recommended!

Well it's almost more fun then doing on my own car. Realy - 30 minutes for general repair of whole car, no quirks, no broken tools and definitely no unmovable rusty screws. :)
It is not perfect, for example names of spare parts in Czech language are pretty lame and sometimes there is serious pixel hunting when you want to zoom and react with some little parts.
But it's original, cheap and don't know exactly why - but it is fun!

I like this game it show the basic understanding of mechanics and would recommend you to play it. the only thing i would like to see is an other game like this that goes more in depth. Like having to work on more different types of motor vehicles from motor cycle all the way up to over the road truck or 18 wheelers. that you can do miner repairs at the beginning of the game and as you progress in the game the more major the repairs get by doing every thing real life mechanics do. for example rebuilding an engine from the inside and out.

After reading several reviews and noticing it was on sale, I decided to give this game a try. I have a Quad Core 3.8ghz AMD, GeForce 730 2gb Graphics Card, and 8gb DDR3 RAM. As soon as I loaded up the first vehicle in the game, I experienced low framerates. I exited and changed the video settings to Quality High, Resolution 1280x720, VSync OFF, Antialiasing DISABLED (These are the same settings I use for DayZ, which gives me 40+FPS). I now have 0 drop in framerate, and the game still looks beautiful. I've been an experienced mechanic for over 10 years. I am a certified CNC Machinist, as well as a certified Mercedes-Benz Technician. I've been a gamer since the NES days. The graphics are really good, and I haven't experienced any noticeable bugs, glitches, or clipping issues. The sound is ok, but nothing to brag about. I did listen to the radio, but had turned it down 50% before I even started. I never found it to be annoying. Movement around the shop environment is pretty smooth. No issues there. The game starts every level with a worksheet that explains what the customer wants you to check for or replace. Great thing is, you can refer back to this worksheet at anytime. Most of the parts can be visually inspected without removing them, but a lot of parts can only be inspected upon removing something in front of it (i.e. a timing belt before inspecting the water pump). The electrical components must be checked using the OBD Scan Tool. You are also able to test drive vehicles in order to diagnose bad parts, and the physics are good. Right clicking the mouse opens a menu allowing you to install parts, remove parts, turn the chassis transparency off/on, and turn the parts color, such as red, yellow, and green corresponding to the condition, off/on. Some of the parts can simply be removed, others must be unbolted and bolted back on. Everything must be installed in the reverse order of removal. Yes, you can forget to install parts, but you cannot give the car back to the customer until you fix your mistakes. The game automatically checks tasks off your worksheet as you complete them. After a little over an hour of playing, I found this game to be very fun. I'm impressed that any developer would tackle a game like this, and with such detail. Don't expect it to be 100% realistic, such as every nut and bolt, accurate pricing, names of cars, etc. I don't think anyone could learn the basics of car repair from this game, but I do think someone can use this game to understand the overall concept of automotive repair. I honestly don't have anything bad to say about this game. I wish the concept of this game would've implemented on Forza, Grand Turismo, or Need For Speed a long time ago! If you're interested in automotive repair, get this game now that it's on sale.

This is a fun Mechanic themed puzzle game. The developer has added 2 free DLC packs since release and both have added to the fun as well as a few more hours of game play. When I am in between more serious games I enjoy the relaxation that I get from games like this. It is well thought out and is priced fairly. If you enjoy relaxing games, this would be one of the ones I would highly recommend.

A customer ask me to change the air filter. So I took his car out and did a little test drive but somehow turn into a crash test.

11/10 would crash again.

Great and fun game, Now that I've finished it I wish there was more to do and repair. I would like to see diesel engines in future, turbo-engines, repairing gearboxes, more complex engine diagnostics operation...

A fun game if you like to work on cars or just want to learn more about it. The game could have been more realistic and you get a little bored after a while but again if you like cars it worth checking it out 7/10

If you like to work on cars and you like puzzle games this IS for you. If you know nothing about the basics of how a car is assembled but like puzzle games this might not be for you. For instance, if you don't already know that a fuel pump is installed in the gas tank and the filter is in-line with that pump then you will be searching for days where to find a part that is supposed to be replaced.

This game will not teach you how to fix a car. However, it can give you some basic ideas into what makes a car tick as well as learning some terminoligy such as what a tie rod actually is and where you would find it on a common car. If your a mechanic (like me) it can be a little frustrating at times when you know what needs to be replaced and it makes you go through a ton of unneeded steps to make that replacement. But again, it is a puzzle game more than how a person would really work on a car.

Some things that could be added to the tutorial IMHO would be to show that you can go to the repair bench and fix some of the parts rather than buying new...

I'd also like to see controller support...WSAD in the test driving portions can make you sea sick.

Lastly, the graphic optimizations need some work. I play this on an 27" iMac; I had to turn a lot of the options off to make it playable as well as reducing the resolution. When I play it on my MacBook Pro on Windows7 I dont have to...even though my iMac has much better specs.

All that said, I am very happy with this game and look forward to the new update.
