The game is really nice. Easy to learn, entertaining in a strategic way, and you can play for a long stretch of time before the trains run out of fuel and you have to stop and wait.
I took 1 star out for two reasons. 1) It is annoying to keep getting the basic slowest trains out of the crates on my 10 lvl. Seriously, the crates should scale to level. Yes, I start getting better trains as I progress, but I don't want any more lvl 1 trains and I don't care that I can sell them. The game dollars spent on opening the crates should translate into some value. 2) The train repairs - they are so random and have no justification. They just happen, and you gotta spend on them. Why? Could at least be a story behind it, or just remove this element altogether. It doesn't add to the gameplay.
This is the kind of game that takes a bit of time to figure out the nuances, once you do though it's quite enjoyable. The game never demands your attention, but at times you will find yourself waiting to be notified when your trains have come into the station. One frustrating factor is the cost of licenses for different areas of the world. 50,000 coins per zone makes for sloooowwww progression. I like this game a lot as well as it's sister title Pocket Planes, I say get them both and become a mini- mogul!
Loved this game until the last update! It keeps flipping upside down. It'll start in landscape mode and be right, then after a couple of minutes it will flip upside down. So I'll turn the phone and after about 3 minutes it does it again. Held it for about 15 minutes to see if it would right itself but it didn't. This is on iPhone 5c with UTD iOS. I play a lot of different games in landscape mode and this is the only one with issues, so it's not the phone. Please fix it!
