Looking for an old flash/shockwave puzzle game: directing traffic
November 2, 2014 12:58 AM   Subscribe

I remember playing a game ages (ten years?) ago on (now defunct) bonus.com, which involved manipulating different-coloured cars using switches and other things. I played it on a desktop computer, and it used flash or shockwave. One needed to get a certain amount of cars into specific places to pass the level. The game was played from a top-down perspective. There were many levels. I think, though I may be mistaken, that the game had a person's name in the title. Can you help me find it?

Many thanks, MeFites!

Not sure of the game itself, but you could try searching gaming sites for suitable tags, eg.

Best answer: Some images and most game pages are blocked here at work, but how about "Traffic Jammer JX"?

Here's a webpage from 2006: http://gamesdirectory.blogspot.com/2006/09/traffic-jammer-jx-cool-java-puzzle-game.html

This sounds familiar. Was it one of those gridlock-style games where you have to maneuver rectangular cars out of a crowded parking lot?

Was it I Love Traffic?

Also reminiscent of sokoban, which had the player pushing boxes around in a warehouse. 2D only, top down view.

There is a Lumosity game like this called Train of Thought.

Response by poster: It wasn't a parking/box puzzle type game.

More like Trainyards (http://trainyard.ca) if anything, though I remember having to control things in real time, and it was with cars not trains.

Response by poster: Yep! It's definitely Traffic Jammer JX.

Thanks so much themanwho! I am in awe of your game detective skills, especially since I was wrong about it being Flash or Shockwave and also kinda wrong about it being 'very 2D.' <3
