What's New in Version 1.5
New set of "stop-go" maps with signals to control the trains.
The new fast-forward button gives expert players a more challenging game early on.
Refines the scoring system.
Misses the mark
The game's concept is unique - and habit forming - for someone like me, who loves freeways and railways. The fascination is derived from the way the lanes/rails flow together and the things move.
The first two layouts were fun, and I enjoyed the struggle to "unlock" the third layout with a high score. Unfortunately, the third and most challenging layout is a total LOSE. Tracks are crossing at right angles, rather than merging (a no no), and with the sudden emergence of new trains from nowhere, the element of chance becomes more i portent then the player's skill at guiding trains onto the appropriate tracks to achieve the win.
This game needs more work.
This is a very fast action challenging logic puzzler keeps you interested and always coming back for more.
The object is to route the trains through the track switches to get them to the correct stations without colliding with other trains.
Just touch the switches to change trains direction, touch the trains to speed them up to get them through maze of tracks and stations and switches faster.
Just Another 5-Star Review
I don't write many reviews, but I had to add my 5* to this one. Within moments you're up to speed, so to speak, but chasing the high score keeps you coming back. It's surprising how a fairly simple game can get your adrenaline pumping! My daughter and I cannot put it down.
