Good car puzzle game, I really like the concept.
Got it for free but i recommand it for 2$, not 5...

+ Nice puzzle game
+ Steam Cards

- NOT a racing game
- Monotonous - there's a nice changing weather but it's really the same again and again.
- Camera control (I'd prefer the keyboard instead of the mouse)
(- One player (would be fun to play coop/vs))

only postive thing is that they took the time to add a trading card set. The game itself is a good puxxle idea, but the controls are so clunky and the levels so poorly laid out that of the few people I know who've played could barely get past the tutorial, I myself gave up even trying, the diffciculty in trying to make the poor levels work made even the tutorial a frustrating mess. If you like a block turn puzzler get "Vampires : Guide Them to Safety" That's a good game with the same mechanics but actually has a balance between challenging and rediculous

TL;DR This game is repetitive, easy and boring.

Higher levels are supposed to be harder but the clouds that occassionally block your sight and the increased speed of changing tiles is obnoxious at best. Especially since you can buy an auto pilot after about level 4 or 5.
Other than that each and every level is just like the previous one.

I'm glad that I got this game for free, and I do not recommend picking it up for any price higher than that.
Luckily, Steam lets you hide games from your library.

Are you dying for a car themed version of Pipe Dream? No? Well, that's not surprising, I doubt anyone else is either. Anyway, You click the parts of the race track to rotate them so they can turn where they need to go. The only part that is actually a challenge is that pieces of the track will frequently change to different pieces while you are playing so while you may think you actually have a connected course, nope, you don't. There seems to be powerups you can buy that make things trivially easy. You can crash and then... I am not sure if there is actually any set back to that. It says you have to buy repair but I am not sure what happens if you don't. Bottomline is, there is nothing terribly innovative or new about this Pipe Dream with a face lift. There is really no reason to get this game.
