Traffix is a puzzle game that puts you in charge of traffic lights on different road systems. By changing the lights to red, orange and green you work to get traffic to flow on increasingly complex and busy roads. It sounds complex, but with simple visuals and a one-two tap interactions it's actually accessible to many abilities.

You control traffic flow through lights in three ways:
  • Red: All the vehicles will stop. The red traffic light will get everybody angry after a while.
  • Amber: It will allow one car to pass. After that, becomes automatically red. The yellow traffic light is the safest play.
  • Green: Click twice to make the light turn green. This will open the traffic light and allow all the cars to advance. Most of the accidents occur within the green traffic light.

The game comes to life as the cars try and work with your decisions to safely and quickly get to where you are going. For example, you might tap to set a light to amber and let one car through, but other cars may also try and sneak through as well -- just like real drivers.

You are awarded stars for each level you complete. Once you have three stars you can try the Chaos Mode. It features extra stress and madness. You need to guide the police cars to their destination safely. One crash and you lose.
