Parking Frenzy 2.0 review

Free

Manufacturer: Games2Win

Our Rating: We rate this 3 out of 5

Prarking Frenzy 2.0 is a game that is exactly like it sounds. The challenge is to park your car into increasingly difficult spaces as quick as you can. Sound boring? Well it is…sort of!

Parking Frenzy 2.0 is a free parking game (yes, parking!) that is designed to work on your Android smartphone or tablet. Your left thumb controls the accelerator and you move your right thumb in a circular motion to steer the car. See Stick Cricket for Android review.

The idea behind Parking Frenzy is cute: turn something mundane that no one particularly enjoys, but everyone can do, into a game that's easy to understand - much like that silly window condensation game that people played on Playstation 2's Eye camera. The only problem is that it's pretty repetitive and ultimately, parking is pretty boring. Initially the game was fun, but that didn't last very long. Like pretty much every gaming app that has ever existed, Parking Frenzy starts off by going easy on you, providing a parking space that in real life, your nan could negotiate herself into...without her glasses on. Parking Frenzy isn't real life though and controlling the car it proves to be as tricky as Paul Daniels in a particularly tricky mood. See also Top ten Android apps.

The game isn't completely ruthless with you. You're allowed to bump your car three times while attempted to park your car. Bump it a forth time though and it's 'wrecked' and you have to restart the level. See also Samsung Galaxy S3 release date, specs and rumour round-up.

Again, like most other gaming apps, your score is determined by how quick you complete each level and how well you do on each level. In Parking Frenzy's case, this means how few times you bumped your car. Don't be too hard on yourself, if you do have a little prang, it's a tricky game!

Parking Frenzy 2.0 review

If you were getting excited; thinking this is the best thing ever, now it's time to stop. It really isn't. It's pretty basic and not overly challenging if you take your time. There are only 16 levels and if you're a real keeno you can finish this game and delete it off your tablet or smartphone within 45 mins. In fact, that's the exact thing that you should do. Download this game, challenge yourself to try and finish it in under 45 mins, then delete it off your Android and part ways with only happy memories. Its heart's in the right place after all.

    At the end of this month, after nearly 16 years of mostly good service (not all with me, I might add), my pride and joy will be meeting its maker. Yes, my beloved Pug is about to become a keyring. Since I'm far too lazy to walk anywhere, I need a new car. I'm pinning all hope on the Auto Trader mobile app for Android tablets and smartphones coming to my rescue.
