Gameplay

Players earn points by performing jobs or taking on challenges, they can build their own garages with service bays to do more jobs, hire and interact with friends in the game and buy cars – lots and lots of cars. Showrooms offer up plenty of eye candy and the prices are just tempting enough to have them washing cars, changing spark plugs and delivering pizzas all day long to save up enough cash for their next purchase. Pretty much anything they can do in a real car they can do in Car Town. Well, almost anything. They can race, they can take road trips, they can do deliveries or they can simply putter around town. But more than anything else, they can customize their own rides.And The Champion Of The Year Goes To XI Irfan.[5]
