supernightshift is a minimalistic puzzle racer on the nightly streets of Hamburg. Strategically combine the different means of transportation the city has to offer to reach your destination as fast as possible. Watch your travel budget and don't dawdle on your smartphone, or you'll run out of time!
supernightshift is like a night drive: dark, atmospheric, mysterious. The eponymous nightshift in supernightshift is powered by a detailed traffic simulation, that realistically models the map of Hamburg, bus and subway lines, down to individual traffic lights. supernightshift is a racing game that challenges the player to master not merely one single vehicle but hundreds of them. Only skilful anticipation and a combination of different means of transportation will lead to a destination in time and within the tight limits of the player’s travel budget. And thanks to the complex underlying traffic simulation there will always be yet another path through the dense city traffic that is even faster, even cheaper, even more challenging than the previous one.
