Crazy Courier icon Crazy Courier

Crazy Courier is a puzzle-based strategy game. It is available for purchase on the iPhone and the iPod Touch via the iTunes App Store. In Crazy Courier your goal is to pick up packages and make deliveries around the city. The city consists of 9 districts, each with its own particular strategy required. You move your car throughout the city by moving road segments around the screen in order to make a route to your destination. Similar to a number-sliding puzzle, road segments act like little sliding tiles. The difference however, is that these tiles are roads that vehicles will be traveling down, all while you are trying to slide them to the right place.
