Cosmic Express is a puzzle game about planning the train route for the world's most awkward space colony, from the minds behind A Good Snowman Is Hard To Build and the art of Tyu from Klondike. It's cute, harder than it looks, and guaranteed to give you hours of frustrating fun across hundreds of levels.

Coal? Where these trains are going, they don’t need…coal.
I absolutely love puzzle games. They’re my preference when searching for mobile games. This one came highly reviewed, although, I sort of regret purchasing it. It’s better than a 1 star game for sure. The first world is very entertaining and proves this to be a great concept for a game, but by the end of the first world, it becomes brutally difficult. As in not fun. Be seriously prepared to spend an hour or more on a single puzzle. You’ll be staring, guessing, and trying all sorts of solutions to route a train that gets adorable alien riders to their home. Then, when you think it can’t be harder, they throw in stuff like certain aliens have to ride a clean train before the slimy aliens can ride. Ugh. It’s just so tough. No hints either - not that those help because every single level would require hints. Less of a puzzle game and more of an exercise in futility. This coming from an electrical engineer who loves to game and solve problems. I may come back and try harder at a later time. For now, this lands well behind King Rabbit and Slayaway Camp, among other choices for me.
a real head scratcher
This game is difficult but not complex, which is how puzzle games should be if you ask me. No paragraphs of tutorial to read and remember. No timers. No hints. No filler levels. Good game. Not to spoil too much, but try to catch yourself making the same mistakes and rethink your first assumptions about which boxes the little guys should go in. It's really satisfying when the solution to a level clicks in your brain. I give Cosmic Express 5 aliens out of a possible 5 aliens. Highly recommend.
