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.

Outstanding, smart, fun and addictive puzzler
Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best. On the face of it this looks pretty simple, but as you progress through the levels there's some great new challenges and the addition of new game features that keep you coming back for more. A great learning curve and hundreds of levels make this a must have game for any puzzle fans.
Superb Puzzler 5/5
Hours of entertainment in this addictive puzzle ...starts so simple and builds up to more difficult levels. Head scratching at times ... But all in many different ways The speed controller allows you to figure where you are going wrong in your track design . A must try ..you won't be sorry.
Simple yet challenging. Thanks to the Switch Player feature my 10 year old is enjoying it too.
And the new updates are a great enhancement to an already great game.
