Car Characters Become Heroes
Car Toons! delivers a madcap set of car-based puzzles involving a group of anthropomorphic rescue vehicles. The Car Toons -- a police car, an ambulance, and a fire truck -- have been brought out of retirement to defeat the havoc-wreaking Gangster Cars. Filled with hilarious one-liners, hip cartoon graphics and puzzles that are Rube Goldberg-like in their solutions, the app tasks kids with figuring out ways to send the mobster cars to the junkyard.
Puzzles Filled with Crazy Contraptions
Each of the over 100 puzzles show a baddie vehicle perched in some precarious location, such as on the edge of a bridge or parked on a lot on the top of a tall building. Players help the Car Toons to dislodge the Gangster cars and send them careening into the land of used parts. It helps that each Car Toon has special powers and that the puzzles are filled with crazy contraptions. For example, in one, by double-tapping on the screen, you make the ambulance jump up on a ledge to knock into a giant wheel that then careens down a road triggering a trap door below the unsuspecting baddie car.
What Makes It Good?
With lovable hero cars and puzzles filled with wacky contraption that require experimentation to solve, this is an app that both entertains and challenges kids to think.
Car Toons is a great fit for kids who love cars and superheroes.
