It is our endeavor to offer our consumers exciting and engaging opportunities such as gaming and staying socially connected anytime, anywhere”.

In Great Indian Parking Wars, users role play as owners of a street and they are encouraged to role play and do tasks along with their friends. Tasks further drive points for the users and hence a leader board that drives competition amongst friends.

The game dynamics allow the users to add friends to their network, buy new cars, issue challans to cars parked on their street, block parking areas on others’ streets and lots of such interesting in-game activities which keep the user glued to the game at all times. The games do not require any downloads, and are Free-to-play for the users where there are no subscription charges involved.
