    Easy ability to armchair drive an uber.


    nothing material

    If you want to truly understand where the so-called 'gig economy' is going, this little simulation is for you. It's challenging and depressing all at once. Maybe people will better understand all this 'disruption' and such? Doubtful but one can hope.

    This is really well done and clearly created with empathy


    None that I can find after a day of playing.

    Step into the life of an Uber driver - what is it like - what are your fears and concerns? Can you win?

  • Pros: 

    It seemed like a good idea.


    Not enough options.

    I played for 10 mins and I had enough.
