Trainyard is a puzzle solving game unlike any that you've ever played. It's easy to learn but very tough to master. Your job is simple: get each train to a goal station. Red trains go to red stations, blue trains go to blue stations, etc. You control the trains by drawing track for them to follow. There isn't a time limit or even a score; the only thing you need to do is figure out a solution for each puzzle.
The first few puzzles are almost too easy, but as the difficulty increases you'll be thankful that you were able to practice the fundamentals of drawing track. As the game progresses, you'll have to use colour theory to combine trains of different colours, use timing to merge and split trains, and use every inch of your brain in your quest to beat the game.

Excellent and fascinating
I like this one a lot. A deceptively simple idea, but lots of (nice) puzzling to work out solutions which give the grey matter a good puzzle to work on with no shoot 'em up or time pressure. Definitely worth it - and great for a short break or some casual activity... I can spend a lot of time on this one.
I originally wondered if it might become less interesting as one progressed. Nope. And then here comes yet another release and more improvements. Plus it's now much easier to revisit instructions & tutes (thank you for that). Absolutely outstanding app and well worth getting. If only all apps were as excellent.
Best Game Ever
This has got to be the best game I've played on my iPod. My friend has this game and he showed me how to play! I downloaded TranYard Express and completed that so I got the bought TrainYard and completed that ;) The only thing though, just this week all the puzzles I made were just gone I didn't mind but I could not make anymore or solve anyone else's :/ I did everything! So I deleted it and reinstalled it xD I'm going well solving them all and making really good puzzles (I think) so yeah I really love this game! Thank you for making this game! ;)
This is a great game: the early levels progress steadily while improving the player's understanding and skill; the higher levels remain challenging; there're lots of puzzles; the puzzles are solvable by consistent logic; outcomes are not dependent on hand-eye coordination or luck hitting the right button at the right time; it's an attractive and workable board; and when stuck there is a way to find a solution if you choose to. Brilliant combination. Well done that "one person". Dave
