Car Toons! is a physics based game where vehicles have a personality and they are fed up with all those dummies who keep parking where they shouldn’t or speeders who think they are above the law.
These police, fire and emergency vehicles are out for vengeance and they will push the bad guys over the edge, literally.
Players control fire trucks, ambulances and police cars. The goal is to park in the designated spot while getting the bad guys off the road within a limited amount of time. The faster you complete the task, the better your score. There are plenty of obstacles and plenty of tricks to help along the way.
To move a vehicle, tap it once. To make it stop, tap it again. You must be able to push the bad guys over the edge, but not go over yourself. There are platforms that disappear when you touch them, platforms that must be removed by pushing a button, gaps that must be jumped over, and various obstacles that increase in difficulty as levels get harder.
Each one of your vehicles has a special power-up that can be used to help in a crunch. The police car can make a complete 180 turn from a stand still position so he can face the opposite direction and take care of business that was previously behind him. The ambulance can jump over obstacles. The fire truck has a turbo boost that lets him zoom up ramps and across wide gaps.
There are 108 levels across nine worlds, making this a great bargain. Players of all ages will enjoy the fun and challenging puzzles on each level. The cars have humorous quotes that will put a smile on your face and make you feel a little bit of justice when you think about that guy who cut you off last week.

What I liked: The developers of this game obviously have a good sense of humor. The comments from the police car are pretty funny.
What I didn’t like: The puzzles are fairly easy to solve. This game is great for young ones, but a little too easy for grown ups.
To buy or not to buy: If you like puzzle games and are looking for something easy to play, this is an entertaining game for the whole family.
