A new mobile game aims to answer a question many drivers have today: “My car does what?”
The game, Dashboard Blitz, helps educate players about the beeps, flashing icons and technologies that are common in many of today’s cars. Dashboard Blitz players work at a virtual auto expo booth where they answer customers’ questions about crash prevention technologies like blind spot monitors and back-up cameras. The game is a part of the MyCarDoesWhat campaign, created by the National Safety Council and the University of Iowa, to educate about current and upcoming car safety technologies.
Objectives of Dashboard Blitz include:
- Selecting safety features that meet a customer’s needs
- Progressing through 30 levels to gain points and unlock upgrades – from mechanic helpers to rocket-powered roller skates
- Battling the clock while answering as many customer questions as possible
