ParkingLot version 1.2 has quite the new look! The object of the game is still the same, get the yellow Bug out of the parking lot, however the app has a lot of new features. I love that the parking lot now looks like a real parking lot! There are parking spaces, handicap spaces, there are even those little yellow cement things. You know, the ones you try desperately not to hit the front of your car on when you are parking!
Once you have opened the app, you will notice that there is a new information section at the top of the screen. Here you are given information about the puzzle you are playing. The information section displays how many moves you have made, the puzzle pack you are in, which puzzle you are on in that puzzle pack, your record and the difficulty of the puzzle you are current playing. You will also notice a new lower menu bar. When you open the app the options are; Packs, Puzzles, Reset and About. If you select Packs, you can then choose to go to the Previous Pack or the Next Pack. At this time, there are two packs available, Athens and Bangkok. Each of the packs contain 40 puzzles. If you select the Puzzles options, you can then go to the Previous and Next Puzzle within the pack. You can tell which pack and puzzle you are currently on in the information at the top of the screen. I also noticed that you can only go forward five, then you will get a pop-up saying you need to solve a puzzle before you can go any further.
When you clear a puzzle (get the yellow Bug out of the parking lot) you will get a pop-up displaying which puzzle was just cleared, how many moves it took to clear the puzzle and what your record moves for that puzzle are (the lowest number of moves it has ever taken you to clear the puzzle). You are also given the following options; Next Puzzle, Play Again and Minimum Moves. The Minimum Moves option will take to you a webpage that will display the lowest number of moves that have been discovered for that puzzle. It is pretty interesting! I seriously love this app!! It is one of those that I play for like WAY too long before actually writing the article about it!! ParkingLot is available through the FreeMyiPhone source.
Note: There is also a new icon…subtle changes but still new none the less.
