3D Parking Mania is a parking game for those of you who are looking for something a little less frantic than the usual run of such games. The reason for the slightly more cerebral approach here is that this is more of a puzzle game than an arcade game, although there is still a time limit to contend with. Your task is to park blue and red cars on the parking spaces corresponding to their colors. That sounds easy, doesn't it? Unfortunately, that is very far from being the case! In fact, this is a game that takes real brain power.
You'll need to use both the keyboard and the mouse to play this game. The four arrow keys are used to maneuver the cars around, but to select one of them in the first place, you must click on it with the mouse. The playing area is patterned on similar lines to a chess board, but it's tilted at 45 degrees, which can make it slightly tricky to remember which arrow key corresponds with which direction of movement - especially when time is running out! There's no need to worry about damage here; all you need to do is to park all the cars in the allotted time.
3D Parking Mania is a very different type of game to most others in this genre, and it's very nicely produced, with a minimalist but insistent soundtrack and well designed graphics. It both looks and sounds very polished, and really shows what a Flash game can do. It's certainly not an easy challenge, though, with even level 1 demanding quite a high level of thought if you are to get it right first time. If you get stuck, there's a "Reset" button available next to the game board - and, at least at first, you're likely to need it!
