Does not Commute guide - how to get to work on time

Posted by Jessica Famularo on October 26th, 2017

Does not Commute is a clever new pathfinding game that puts you in control of guiding a host of quirky characters to work in the morning. You have about a minute to ensure that each person hits the road without crashing into other cars or even houses.

Everything happens simultaneously, so the game will record you sending the first person to work, and then, when you move onto the second, will replay the first person going to work at the same time. By the time you get to the fifth character, there will be four other cars hitting the road at the same time. Needless to say, things can get a bit crazy. That's where we come in. Here's how to get everyone to work without running out that timer.

GDC 2015 - These are the 6 Best Games We Saw at This Year's Game Developers Conference

Posted by Rob Rich on March 11th, 2015

There were a lot of really cool and interesting games on display at this year's Game Developers Conference, which made narrowing down this list extremely difficult. Just because a game isn't featured here doesn't mean it didn't impress me, but if you happened to be in San Francisco last week and saw an iOS game you'd like to mention then by all means please do so in the comments below.

And so, let's take a gander at 148Apps' top picks from GDC 2015.

GDC 2015 - Does Not Commute is Definitely a Game You Should Keep an Eye on

Posted by Rob Rich on March 2nd, 2015

We were teased about Mediocre Games' (Smash Hit, Sprinkle Islands) upcoming and untitled project back in January, but now we've got more details to share - along with a name.

Does Not Commute (Ha!) is a mind-bending puzzle of a game that tasks you with guiding various vehicles to specific destinations on each of its initial eight levels. Which, at its core, is simply a matter of tapping the left or right sides of the screen to steer. It gets a lot more complicated than that, though.

Every time you successfully see a car (or boat on later levels) to the exit, you jump back in time and take control of a different vehicle that you'll need to see to a different exit. The catch is that everyone you previously controlled will be following the paths you've set them on at the same time - creating some rather hectic moments as you try to avoid crashing into these new obstacles.

We'll definitely have a review for Does Not Commute when it should be releasing in mid-April, but until then you can check out some of the madcap action in the video below.
