Product Description

Product Description

Touch Mechanic takes players into the exciting world of customs and car tuning and tasks them with learning what it takes to be a surgeon of the automobile. Gamers learn to change rims, repair damaged bumpers, replace mufflers and brakes, and aftermarket enhancements and perform paint and decal work on vehicles of all shapes and sizes while working their way to the top of the profession! Beginning as a young mechanic with an intriguing past, players find themselves under the wing of Captain Bob of Captain Bob’s Auto Repair. The Player earns money through repair work to upgrade his car and enters the new ride in custom car shows. With impressive showings in the competition, gamers gain the attention of bigger and better shops and eventually obtain a dream job with the top racing team on the circuit!

Touch Mechanic uses the unique touchscreen controls of the Nintendo DS to let you "get your hands dirty" while repairing and upgrading cars. You take control of a young mechanic, and as you work through the game's 75 episodes, you'll change oil, spray paint, replace engines and air filters, and much more.



Use the touchscreen and stylus to repair and upgrade cars.


You'll learn how to use different tools such as the welding tool.
Feel Like You're in a Real Garage
You begin as a novice at the local auto shop, where Captain Bob is your mentor and teaches you the basics of auto repair. As you look around the messy garage and all the scattered instruments and tools you need, you'll get a strong sense of the quintessential auto shop atmosphere.

You'll start with simple objectives, such as changing oil, but soon enough you'll be working on the minutiae of an engine. Speed counts: the faster you do the job, the more you get paid.

The Nintendo DS allows for unique game play control. For example, you use the stylus to control a saw. A meter on the screen shows you how fast you can saw before the blade will break. Maintaining a good speed without breaking the blade is the key to getting the job done and making as much money as possible.

Upgrade Your Own Car
As you learn more repairs and do more jobs, you can use the money you earn to buy your own car and customize it. You can choose from a classic car, race car, SUV, or a coupe, and then upgrade it with body kits, new paint, and more. Impress enough people with your ride, and you'll get a better job at a new garage.

Look At Cars from All Angles
Touch Mechanic features an intuitive interface that has portraits of characters on the top screen and the workshop at the bottom. The game has 3D models of the cars and parts, and you can rotate and look at the exterior and interiors of cars from every angle.

Hi I'm autistic adult girl gamer.

This game is awesome plus it keeps you playing for hours. See I love cars so this game is great. In the game you get to work on cars and change the fuel and the exhaust pipes and everything plus you get an old junker car of your own to fix up. You get to paint it change the air filter on it. Change the rim's and everything so you can take it to the car show to get qualified for the car show.

There's really not heck of whole lot to say about this game but that it's really fun!

If your a car lover and like to work on car's virtually then you'll really enjoy this game!

Happy Gaming!

This game is a blast. More than any other one I've ever seen, it really captures the feeling of working on a car. The DS is the perfect system for it. It plays like a spiritual successor to Street Rod and Street Rod 2. It only has two problems:

1. Apart from the turbocharger and the air filter, you're mostly unable to customize the engine.
2. There is no actual driving component.

I suppose a less serious third problem is that it's too linear...this game doesn't need a constricting, linear plot anyway. All it needs is an outsourced racing system to add some kind of track day or race day, and a very low level of customization for the central character (or save the coding by just not depicting the central character's race/gender at all).

In any case, an awesome game, and hopefully the first of a very successful franchise.

this game is great for anyone who thinks being a mechanic might be cool. use hand and power tools to disassemble and rebuild various parts of the car.
A lot of the modifications have to do with the cosmetic aspects of the cars which I kind of wish was different because I liked the internal mechanical lessons better. A weird thing in the description is that it says you'll do oil changes but there is absolutely no oil changing in this game!
Other than that, it is an original unique game and I wish they would make a sequel!

This is a cool game just because it's different and makes good use of the Nintendo DS system. It's not a perfect game by any means, but if you like cars, you'll probably enjoy it as I do. I think it'd be a great game for them to do a sequel to and add on to the concept - more cars, more parts to work on, etc.
