Here’s a nice change from the usual endless runners of late, as a decent traffic management game is now available for Windows Phone. The company behind Traffic Frenzy, Games2Win (site) produces many short-attention-span games for iOS and Android, with this title being popular on the latter. The development house is slowly bringing over many of those games to Windows Phone, and this is one of those.
Traffic Frenzy is a free game with solid, bold graphics. Its purpose? You have to manage traffic by acting as a traffic light switcher. In theory, this sounds like the dumbest thing ever—what’s next, Teeth Brushing Frenzy? In reality, the free game is kind of a fun, no brainer.
Game setup borrows from the Angry Birds style of 1 to 3 stars for mission success and various levels of increasing complexity. Cars race back and forth and you need to regulate them by controlling the traffic light. You can also use various powerups like Speed Up, Slow Down and the most hilarious, Airstrike (that’s a little extreme).
In between levels the music is a bit obnoxious but there is something OCD and cathartic about the game. Regardless, it’s free and ad-driven with some optional in-app purchases. We’ll file it under “dumb but amusing”.
