A local co-op game for Switch about managing traffic of low-poly cars in a low-poly world.
Urban Flow is a local co-op game for 1-4 players developed and published by Baltoro Games for Nintendo Switch.
The goal of the game is to direct traffic by switching traffic lights.
Each level consists of an arrangement of streets with cars moving through them. Traffic lights are present, but they have to be changed manually by the player - otherwise mindless drivers will quickly cause a disaster. The player has to manage that and avoid any collisions, while also trying to maintain a certain throughput, as letting enough cars pass within the time limit is required to win.
The task is often made difficult by special vehicles (ambulances, garbage trucks, broken cars or even tanks) which require special attention as their behavior differs from other cars in the game. The player might also have to deal with bad weather or malfunctioning equipment.
There are 100 levels in the main campaign as well as an endless mode.
The game supports local multiplayer for up to 4 people - who can join or leave the game at any time, even in the middle of a level. The control over various traffic lights is either split between the players, or in some cases - it’s shared between them, requiring extra level of coordination.
The game uses low-poly 3D graphics to represent the game world and all gameplay elements.The music is mostly slow and calm, reinforcing the relaxing aspect of the campaign.
