Since I currently live in what can be considered "The City," I haven't had much need for a car in the past 6+ years. However, I still remember how extensive a trip to the gas station could be: pump gas, check the oil levels, squeegee the windshield, check tire pressure, buy snacks and whatever else the occasion called for. Now I can relive that experience any time I want, minus the snacks (*tear*), thanks to Treat Yourself Apps' Panic At The Pump.

Panic At The Pump is a hectic, multitasking, time management game that tosses players into the roll of an over-worked gas station attendant. Cars file in one-by-one, each one with a laundry list of demands, and it's up to the player to take care of it all. They have to be quick and efficient, however, because the clock is always ticking down. Soon it won't be enough to simply fill the tank; they'll have to pump gas while refilling oil and putting air in the tires.

Weirdos like me who sometimes miss the full automotive experience, or even just the curious, can check out Panic At The Pump in the App Store right now for free.
