Wrench is a highly detailed race car mechanic simulator that tasks you with maintaining your team's race cars. The gameplay aspect is very promising featuring a leveling system, digital racing and stat-tracking of what you've serviced, which really motivates me to continue adventuring through the car and servicing just like I would in real life. You can release objects to make them float where you drop them, and this is extraordinarily useful for disassembling parts with lots of washers and spacers, like control arms and struts. But if you take off a bad part and don't want it cluttering your space, you can quickly throw it to apply gravity, and hurl it across the room. This is awesome because after you complete your set of repairs/maintenance, it will automatically discard extra parts. At first must say i was kind of confused about a lot of the controls and mechanics of the game. Took me a few good minutes of playing around and asking a few questions to get used to it. Overall well worth the price even in its current state, though I would recommend having some technical knowledge going in or you're going to have a real rough time.
