JadeDragon's reviews and playing tips: Pocket PC games

Done in 50 Seconds, by AIM Productions $14.99 US
Reviewed March 2002


Have you seen that movie called Gone in 60 seconds with Angelina Jolie? Well, this is a game with the same concept: steal a car; get away before you get busted! Except in this game you only have 50 seconds! Done in 50 Seconds is a Pocket PC game developed by AIM Productions that combines brain rattling puzzle and time limit excitement. In the game, you are facing a puzzle filled with cars which you need to move out of the way so that you can steal a car, (a Lamborghini, forklift, SUV, Beetle and so on, you'll be told which car to steal for each puzzle) out of there. AIM Productions claim there are over 60 levels, though I haven't made it to the end yet. Done in 50 Seconds is a very smartly designed puzzle game that will haunt you in your sleep. So strap on and take a ride.

Playing Hint and Tips

When you see an empty space it usually means that you need to use it. So move the cars into the empty spaces and see where that gets you. The earlier levels are usually very straight forward, so keep it simple. Look for the door and clear your way. In the later levels you usually have to move other cars around before you can see a clear path between you the door.

Ratings (scale of 1 to 5):

Graphics Super arcade looking graphics. Very pleasant to look at.
Sound Awesome music soundtrack and funny narration when you get busted.
Fun Meter This is one of the most creative puzzle games I've played, especially if you like cars. Easy to get started, but not too easy to get to higher levels. You are in for a challenge!
Addictivity I did wake up in the middle of the night thinking how to get out of one level.
