Empire Builder Deluxe!

If you liked the old board game, or just trains and playing yard master or dispatcher, you WILL enjoy this game! Simple strategic game play to make the most out of your payloads. You can earn everything you need in game, and extra "bucks" by looking at short ads. Upgrade your trains, increase holding quantities at stations, add lines to new destinations. I started with Europe, but continued on to add North America, you buy other continent licenses with the earnable in game coins. You do not have to spend real money to play and enjoy this game (but, this is the first app that I truly enjoyed and did pay to get better engines (crates) at the beginning.)5 stars all aboard!

Pretty good

I really like this particular app thanks to the popularity of trains today. However, as a suggestion, I believe that at some point, nimble bit should try to make a compound game.

What I mean is that they should have a single app that is basically a host for Pocket Planes, Pocket Trains, and Tiny Tower, giving to the allusion that you are trying to build a shipping business. Whereas the tower is your global HQ and you could make other buildings headquarters, which could lead to you being able to ship stuff through planes, trains, ships, or even trucks in and around that area.

This would be a huge leap for nimble bit but it would be awesome!

Quite enjoyable

This is a great game for playing a few minutes here and there. Not too demanding - except when the daily event is in some out-of-the-way city. In my estimation, the in-game currency ("bux") is reasonably priced. If you're the impatient type like me, you'll probably spend a few real dollars now & then to increase your enjoyment, and I think the devs have earned that.

I have not experienced the orientation bugs reported by others. The only bug I saw was when the daily event got stuck, and was in the same city 4 days in a row. The devs suggested a phone reboot, and the problem went away.

Great game overall.
