Our Mobile Mini “Movers Who Care” is a mobile 2D driving game that enhances the company’s friendly image by focusing on children during a move. Moving can be a difficult and often times boring process for a child, so this mobile application serves as the perfect distraction.

Game users drive a moving truck, playing through five levels, each with different terrain, and three difficulties, each with different box types. The objective of the game is to deliver as many boxes to the house as possible. Points are earned based on the time taken to complete the level, the selected difficulty and the number of boxes kept intact.

Players collect coins in each level. Collecting and saving coins enables players to purchase one-time use items and permanent truck upgrades from the store. These upgrades help them complete more challenging levels and difficulties.

Mobile Mini “Movers Who Care” works on both Apple iPhones and iPads (iOS) and Google Android devices. Players have the option to compete by posting scores to a leaderboard via Facebook. The game is written in Unity’s version of Microsoft Visual Studio using C#.
