Relive Your Elevator Frustrations With Crazy Lift Manager
Sometimes we all just want to take a little break from the monotony of everyday life with a quick video game or two. For many, one of the irksome daily struggles is waiting for the elevator. Having been stuck in one of these evil contraptions myself for a good half hour once, I know this all too well.
Defying all logic, XDA Forum Member newTween has taken the normally tedious task of elevator usage and turned it into a surprisingly enjoyable game. Your goal in the game is to transport people out of their offices and to the ground floor as efficiently as possible.
In the words of the developer:
Crazy Lift Manager is an action strategy game. Hours of addictive gameplay.
Every day at 5pm workers leave the office after a busy day. Your task is to bring them down as soon as possible. Be fast, as people get impacient very quickly and you can lose your job anytime.
– upgrades and traps
– hundrets hours of addictive gameplay
– global highscores
HOW TO PLAY?
Touch a floor and lift goes there. Collect bonuses and watch out for traps. Lift can’t change direction when on the move.
