The risk-free way to ex­press in­ner road rage in heavy traf­fic

The Washington Post Sunday - - TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION - — Hay­ley Tsukayama

Do you hate your com­mute? Con­sider let­ting out some of that road rage by play­ing Does Not Com­mute, a game that asks you to shep­herd sev­eral cars on their way through their chaotic daily com­mutes, one by one. Be care­ful how you plot each driver, how­ever, as you’ll con­tinue to cross paths with all the cars you’ve set in mo­tion. If you send one sedan down the road the wrong way, you might find your­self fac­ing down its head­lights later.

Play­ers should keep a light hand on the steer­ing, as it’s easy to make those tiny ve­hi­cles ca­reen out of con­trol. But they can han­dle them­selves in a crash, and the app may be a good out­let for those who wish, some­times, that they could just drive down the shoul­der. There is also a paid ver­sion, for $2.99, that gets you ac­cess to other check­points — just in case you haven’t found the base game cathar­tic enough.

Free, for iOS and An­droid.
