Good game, no ads, some slow down
Game is pretty good. It’s similar to Simcity but not as in depth. I wish there would have been more explanation as to how to use the import/export feature for money, but I figured it out after messing with it. I did end up playing it for several hours so the play is pretty good. It’s fairly well thought out. I did have a bug where, after researching everything to the max, my wood factory disappeared from the build menu, and my vegetable factory never showed up. I do feel like the game could be a little bigger. I think I’d like some larger islands to play with. It’s fun to make different track layouts. The only negative I can give is that the game suffered a good bit of slow down after I had towns on all of the islands. i’m playing on an iPad 3.
If you’re looking for a good time killer in a city sim, this one is hard to beat.
Could be a really cool game if the kinks are worked out and has some more polish time put into it. I ran into a bug where my trains stacked up and completely stopped moving. Totally broke the game because it kept happening even after destroying and remaking the tracks.
Crashes every ten minutes
Any other game that crashed this much would get 1 star. The fact that I gave it 3 stars and continue to play it is saying something. Fix the crashing on ios8 and I'd give it 5 stars.
