Gridlock Empire is a game of timing, strategy, and low-level political corruption run amok! This version is ad-free with a one-time payment to continue development and keep me fed. There are no NO in-app purchases ever; an ad-supported free version is also available.
Now with three game modes!
- Campaign -
In Campaign mode you play through the hilariously twisted story of a newly elected traffic controller tasked with keeping traffic moving through increasingly hectic city streets. In addition to controlling traffic lights you will also earn special abilities and upgrades, deal with events in your ever-expanding territory and try to seize power while risking the wrath of your constituents.
- Puzzle -
Puzzle mode is great for a quick, casual game. The goal is simple; clear gridlocked traffic by changing as few lights as you can. Take your time and try to beat your high score on each level!
- Survival - (NEW!)
Survival mode takes elements from Campaign mode, removes any semblance of story, and cranks things up as you try to keep cars moving as quickly as possible. The levels don't end, they just get harder and harder until you just can't keep up anymore. Unlock the next level by earning at least one star, or pull your hair out trying to beat your old high scores on another play-through!

- Permissions -
Network Access: Used to log loading-time and game-screen tracking (this info will only be used to improve the game).
Phone State: Totally not as ominous as it sounds; this permission is used as a workaround for certain older devices.
- Level Selection slider was a little too sensitive; it has had some time to put things in perspective and will now learn to take things as they come.
- The final two levels of campaign mode weren't quite frustratingly difficult enough; I've increased frustration by 25%.
- Aforementioned frustration has been removed from the first level of survival mode, which is now a bit easier; please lull yourself into a false sense of security accordingly.
