You may well have heard of Urban Flow, as it picked up a bit of a decent acclaim on Nintendo Switch. Well, should you have been casting a jealous eye the way of Baltoro Games’ traffic-fuelled puzzler and only had an Xbox as your gaming source, you need worry no more – it’s time to feel the Urban Flow on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
Available to purchase, download and play right now on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, following on from a previous release on Nintendo Switch (80 on Metacritic sees this as one to more than consider), is Urban Flow.
It’s a game that comes out of the Baltoro Games camp as they whisk the player off to a world full of beautiful city streets; streets absolutely full of traffic. Pollution issues aside, it’s up to you to control the flow of these vehicles, giving roads and streets the go-ahead to move forward, whilst keeping others behind that red light. Pushing things green and ensuring that traffic jams are kept at a minimum is the key to finding success in Urban Flow, with the most chilled vibes kicking out from there.
It’s priced at £10.74 and means that anyone interested in a new little puzzler should well stick it on their radar. A low-poly visual style helps sell it, as do the plethora of colours. When you consider that there are more than 150 levels to take in, each with a busy intersection or two, and you can see how this one is going to go.
Gameplay is mostly centred on the solo player, but Urban Flow comes to Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S with drop-in, drop-out local cooperative play in the house. Catering for up to four players, friends can team up to keep their cities moving, or throw a spanner in the works and cause some chaos.
There is also an Endless Mode which will, well, keep you playing pretty much forever, whilst Chill Mode will let you kick back with the tunes, forgetting about scores or times. It’s this which will really get you into the flow.
Our full review of Urban Flow on Xbox is up live and ready for your perusal. Go and give it a read and then pay a visit to the Xbox Store – it will sort you out with the download you need for Xbox One or Xbox Series X|S play. You best buy it too, for there will be chaos out there if you don’t.

Urban Flow is a game about the subtle beauty of city streets filled with cars moving in perfect harmony.

Everything will run perfectly – as long as you stay focused! Immerse yourself in a beautiful, hand-crafted, low-poly world to discover the enormous satisfaction of watching the hundreds of tiny, colorful cars flowing through the streets – all while listening to the chill, urban music.
