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.

if i bought this game.

Man this looks fun, I hope this comes out for regular BB's!

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.

There is 1 OpenGL game for the Storm2. It's called "PBA Bowling 2"

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

stallions35

I wish we had cool games....any suggestions as to whats a good game for the Onyx?

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!

robnhl

No reason you couldn't buy it now and wait till you get the Storm to play.

rcmike

True. You could buy it now and download it when you get your storm.

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!!!

robnhl

Very fun game. I like it much better than the similar iPod game Traffic Rush.

Very good game. Very much worth it.

twthompson

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.

Plazmic Flame

Is this from the makers of Traffic Rush or did they just decided to borrow a few ideas?

quojo

I was thinking the samething, except traffic rush is fee.

live2board7

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!

bmtx

I have a game very similar to this on my iPod touch... And it was free.

quojo

Looks waaaaaaaaaaaaaay better too.

I would really like to have this game, but I'm on blood pressure medication.

xandermac

Blackberry games are so ghey.

Shay D. Life

This game kept me very occupied for awhile. Great job mobigloo.

tterpy

Works great on Storm 2. Fun, good graphics . . . and addictive. Favorite game at this time.

oldblackbeard

Not a game person but great marketing.

mundo472

This game is a total hoot! Lots of fun

Very disappointed in the poverty of open gl games, though...

tm24fan8

Just bought it today, along with Air Traffic Control...great games! Thanks for the tipoff CB!

crnz

Youtube video is better than the game itself! ;)

ishore

Well, I had ATC already. Now this kept me up all night. Great game. Addicting.

tarotmusic

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!

hoosercub

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

Mobigloo

Contact us at support@mobigloo.com with your order number and we will send you a version.

EvanTheGamer

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.

This game is addictive, the permis is simple but loads of fun.
