Mini Motorways Update Expands Each Metropolis with New Maps, Missions

Mini Motorways, the minimalist strategy simulation game where you connect facilities in a city by building roads, is getting a major update that further expands each metropolis. Since the game is quite addictive, I’m fairly certain many have already burned through everything Mini Motorways has to offer, so the new update is a great addition to an already great game.

Developer Dinosaur Polo Club is now dropping the so-called Challenge City Update, which brings new maps, missions, leaderboards, accessibility options, and much more. The update is available right now for free download on Steam via PC and macOS as well as Apple Arcade.

The Challenge City update introduces a brand-new gameplay mode, which includes handcrafted challenges for all new 12 maps included, each with its own unique features and geography in mind. Also, the new game mode comes complete with custom modifiers, achievements, and separate leaderboards.

The update also marks the return of the Seasonal Holiday photo frames in Photo Mode. New and improved colorblind options have been added too, including a color picker that allows players to select preferred colors.

Improvements to controller support have also been added, so if you play with a controller, you will now be prompted to replay the tutorial if you want to see the changes. Last but not least, current leaderboards have been revamped to include histogram graphics that show where one’s score places them among others who have played each map.

However, Challenges, Surrounding Scores, and Friends leaderboard haven’t been overhauled. Still, players will notice that the Global Top Ten display for normal maps have been removed (they will remain available on the Daily and Weekly Challenge).

Since I already reviewed Mini Motorways when it launched some months ago, here are some interesting stats from the Apple Arcade community:

  • Total Points Scored: 12,650,438,793
  • Total Concrete Tiles Placed: 1,755,660,997
  • Total Bridges Placed: 29,033,453
  • Total Tunnels Placed: 3,780,135
  • Total Motorways Placed: 27,614,920
  • Total Traffic Lights Placed: 9,759,614
  • Total Roundabouts Placed: 18,429,457
  • Total Concrete Tiles Deleted: 1,162,399,002
  • Daily Challenges Played: 1,478,989
  • Weekly Challenges Played: 793,921

Equally interesting is the fact that Mini Motorways recently hit a unit milestone of over 500,000 sold on PC and was awarded the Grand Prize at this year’s New Zealand Game Awards, as well as the Choice Award at IndieCade.
