Weekend Sale: Save $2.00 and Get Road Mania this weekend for only $2.99 >>

The folks from Mobigloo, makers of such BlackBerry game classics as Nintaii, Next Dual Pack and Air Traffic Control, are back with a new game for BlackBerry Storm users called Road Mania. The goal of Road Mania is simple yet oh soooo challenging (and addictive and fun).... All you have to do is keep the traffic flowing! Here's the official verbage:

Road Mania puts you in charge of keeping the traffic flowing on busy junctions and preventing crashes. Vehicles approach the crossroads from all directions. Your role is to either speed them by flicking them with your finger or make them stop by simply tapping on them. For every vehicle that makes it to the other side, you score a point. But if there's a crash, the game ends. Features include:

  • 9 scenes to play (Main Street, Freeway, Downtown, Interchange, River, Rio, Tramway, New York and Roundabout)
  • Many types of vehicles: cars, convertibles, bikes, trucks, pick up, buses and even a tramway!
  • Amazing graphics and smooth animation
  • Warning: highly addictive

The graphics are really solid in this one and the game play is smooth and fun. I gave it a go and like it a lot. Two CrackBerry thumbs up! Road Mania works on both the BlackBerry Storm 9530/9500 as well as the BlackBerry Storm2. Road Mania sells for $4.99 and you can learn more and purchase from the CrackBerry App Store by following the link below.

Road Mania: New Must-Have Game for the BlackBerry Storm!

As much as that would be neat, I would think trackball/trackpad movement would not be quick enough to play this game. Just not as fast to move your cursor to a car as tapping with your finger EXACTLY where you want it to be/go....but nice game for Storm folks.....

We are actually looking at options for doing this. One is to assign a digit to each car (displayed on the top of the car). Typing the digit on your keyboard will stop the car, ALT+Digit will accelerate. We will see how fun it is implemented this way...

This is getting, as my 7 year old would say, "pasetic."

Not that there is anything wrong with this game - it may very well be alright, but we are some months in and I would have hoped at least one mobile game developer would be pushing into the 3d games.

Non opengl = any BB
opengl = Storm 2 and 8530 only

That's why. It won't sell nearly as well no matter what.

.99cent games would be appreciated! It makes no sense to have to pay 3x that of iphone games

Very smooth gameplay and very addicting. It's well worth the $4.99, but even better since it's $2 off. I'd rank it up there as one of my favorite games along with air traffic control (also from mobigloo) and bubble defense.

This games looks awesome, but I will never buy it at $4.99. I know its onsale right now but I won't have my Storm till Feb 21st. BB developers makes me want an iPhone. We need more cheaper games!

Game is very fun and the graphics are top quality(for a BB.) Well worth the $2.99, but have to agree...the price of games and apps are to high, glad I got this while it was on sale!

Great job Mobigloo!!!

Only available on the Storm. If you make if the the Curve or Tour then you have a buyer. Looks like a fun game though that I would definitly play alot.

Great game, great graphics, highly addicting, first game from Mobigloo but will look into other apps by them.

Buy it now guys, definitely worth the money especially since its on sale right now. Probably wouldn't have gotten it if it wasn't. Agreeing with everyone else, app prices suck compared to iToy!

I love Mobigloo! From Nintaii to Next Dual Pack to this. I haven't been disappointed yet, which says a lot. Keep up the great work!

I bought this game last night on my brothers storm, paid for it, never got the email link, emailed support didn't get anything back from them. WTF

Just seen this today sometime and then bought it a few hours later. Really cool game. Lots of fun!

Was wondering though, when I quit out of it and then return, I hit the "Resume" button and it gets struck at "Pause". Is there a way to resume the game?

Thanks, and great game!

EDIT: Never mind.. there's a little button at the top/left of the screen. Very easy to miss, though.
