Urban Flow on Nintendo Switch is a game about the subtle beauty of city streets filled with cars moving in perfect harmony. But such order does not happen all by itself – the city needs YOU to control the traffic lights and to make sure everything goes smoothly. That means no crashes, no jams. Everything will run perfectly – as long as you stay focused!

The premise is simple and should be family to a lot of you. You have a section of town, and you control the flow of traffic using the face buttons to turn traffic lights red or green.
This simple premise is thrown into disarray when things like emergency vehicles get involved, they have timers and can only wait on red for so long. Tanks will ignore the lights entirely and just go through traffic. The camera can fog up and have to be cleaned, and things like train tracks and broken down cars will also interrupt your flow of traffic.
Power-ups can be used in the last case scenario, with my favourite being the slow time option. This meant I could make a couple of changes to avoid collisions.
The multiplayer aspect is a nice touch and makes the game a lot easier. Each player has their own set of lights to control. This is local multiplayer, as I think online wouldn’t work as well.
The look of the game reminds me of a lot of newer mobile games. Its got a blocky cartoon look to it, and this fits in with the game. Everything is clear and easy to spot, which is a must for this kind of game. The music is pretty standard loop music, which plays well with the monotonous traffic. The gameplay is smooth, playing in docked or handheld mode I didn’t experience any issues.
Overall, Urban Flow on Nintendo Switch is a fun game to have on the Switch. It’s perfect for a grab and play, and also for long term playing. Finally, check out Jabba Reviews. Also, follow us on Twitter or Facebook.
