NotesAccessibility Notes

There is no difficulty setting, but levels start easy and get progressively harder. Before you start any level you can inspect the level to see where the parking spots are.

Vibration is used to indicate if you hit something.

You can choose the text size for menus, this also affects the size of on-screen indicators for fuel and the timer. The game has good contrast, on some levels the colour of your car may need to be selected to ensure this. You can adjust the camera to be very close which makes the interactive elements larger. Parking spots are bright and highlighted, the other interactive elements have highlights to indicate them. You can disable Grass and Snow which can aid contrast depending on car colour.

The in-game obstacles emit a sound to indicate their presence (magnet, portal, fans) that gets louder as you approach. There are audio indications when you successfully jump, speed boost and get parked.
