Parking isn't the most exciting thing about driving, and yet Parking Mania has managed to create an entertaining casual game out of it!
This lite version is fairly limited, but offers a reasonable amount of levels to play with little irritation. The aim of every level is to move your car into a specified parking space. You do this by tilting to steer, and sliding your thumb up and down to accelerate, brake and reverse.
The graphics are colorful and fun, and the collision detection is fair. It only takes a moment to get used to the controls, which are really well calibrated. You need a steady hand, but not the hands of a brain surgeon. The timer isn't too difficult to beat, but keeps you under pressure.
There are online scoreboards for you to upload your world beating times to, if you need to be competitive! As with all talk controlled games, it's big problem is you need to be in a relatively still environment to play it - try this on the bus, and you won't be much of a parker.
Parking Mania is a more gently game than its name suggests, but it's surprisingly compelling and fun to play.
