Valet Hero is a fast-paced path-drawing game in which you're in charge of a crowded parking lot, parking a steady stream of speedy, color-coded cars into matching colored spots.

Its touch-screen interface is a little more interesting than you'll find with similar games: as you draw the dotted path that you want each car to follow, you can actually twist the patterns so that you're pulling through or even backing into spots. You're scored ("paid" a certain number of dollars) based on how precisely you park each car--anywhere from "perfect" to "sloppy"--and the level ends once you park a certain number of cars or (hopefully not) when you crash into an obstacle or another car. Predictably, different cars move at different speeds, and parking cars more quickly will increase your "combo meter." The game also mixes things up on each of five unlockable levels (with bronze, silver, and gold difficulty settings, along with a "marathon" option), by adding hazards like police cars and a mysterious black sedan, while also providing cool extras like a speed-up button.

Valet Hero isn't groundbreaking, but it's a fun game for fans of this genre (and definitely worth picking up if it's available for free). Nice touches like great music and a color-blind setting show the care that went into this app.
