Mini Motorways is a game iOS users with Apple Arcade can play. it is a simple puzzle game where you have homes and businesses randomly appearing and you have to create the road network between them to get everyone to work when required.

As the game progresses the traffic builds and you must utilise traffic lights and motorways to ease the congestion.

It’s a relaxing game with pleasant, gentle, graphics and music. It can be quite therapeutic to waste a few minutes playing the game.

My only criticism comes from the lack of AI for the cars, they travel the most direct route, so even if there is a route that would be a fraction of a second slower it can sit empty. I would have appreciated a degree choice here on the part of the cars, maybe a margin for delay from the optimal route to use alternatives. In a real-world situation, this would obviously happen.

Alternatively, the developers could add more diverse traffic measure. Such as a traffic calming system that, when placed on a road, alters the time it takes to traverse it. Some cars will, therefore, redirect to other routes with faster travel times.
