Valet Parking 1989 is a game set in a neon lit city where you park cars for a living, trying to please both celebrity guests and an evil boss to make enough money to buy your dream car.
The game has two main modes of play, an old-style endless play mode where you simply play until you’re dead to beat your own high-scores and a Hollywood teen movie story mode. In this return-to-basics game you can relive the old, classic gaming days of the past.
Gameplay is a unique and enticing blend of time management, strategy and map knowledge. Skill based driving with Hollywood style steering and Hollywood style screeching tires demands both concentration and good stress management while still being fun enough to play around with.

“ Valet Parking 1989 is one of those hidden gems on the Nintendo DSiWare download service that may get overlooked because of its retrospective visual style, but with any luck people will give it a chance so that they can taste what is a delightful little title that captures the essence of what made Nintendo’s Game&Watch series so enjoyable - clear-cut, simple fun.”
