This game is highly addicting, game progression is very good, although the leveling system is a bit too sparse.
All bux prices are extremely good, the bux are highly abundant if you just do the jobs (I had 300 the first 2 days and I usually convert any extra I get and don't spend)
The one common problem, that I share as well, is that of getting the right parts. With so many trains, especially at high levels, it takes forever to get the right parts. I would suggest adding in a system to purchase whatever regular part from a crate for a higher fee, 20-50 is probably a fair price, or it could be piece dependent.
Missions should also only show up in towns you own, I had one in Africa, which I did not own at the time, and would have cost me 50k plus to have a chance at completing the mission.
A train slowing into a station animation would be awesome
Allow us to scrap trains for most of the parts, or allow us to send whole trains.
More job types always welcome
Of course integrate all stations in a city
Allow us to see fuel to go a route, show how much fuel we use on a journey
Special crates are too sparse, they are semi-premium as it is and I have yet to finish a premium train, even trading with my friends
Everything else - epic
Can't put it down
I loved Thomas the tank as a kid and now I love this game. One of those games you can play and put down then play again. I play it at work when it's slow. Very strategic in the track layouts and what object goes where. I finally figured it out, hint: place trains vertically and horizontally.
One of my biggest pet peeves right now is the gaining and losing of coins. We all work hard and think about how to move our trains, BUT our trains shouldn't break down every other round. We gain 600 coins and we end up losing 450 meaning it takes a VERY LONG TIME to get a license, more tracks, new railroad line, and other objectives. It takes away from the fun. You need to fix this breakdown routine to about 4/10 instead of 8/10 plays. I keep losing parts to the better trains that I actually want more of when I run out of coins and that's ridiculous.
Quirky fun but deeper than appears
I have played this game daily for the last 5 months and enjoyed it tremendously. It's one of the few app games that really lends itself to an investment of time and intelligence.
Rather than just swiping daily or clicking a few tasks, the layout of your tracks takes good business investment and therefore thought. And yet it has a real quirky fun and humor to it that makes a joy to play.
The daily events keep it fresh and challenging, the scope will keep you playing for months, and the strategy will keep your mind engaged. Even the optional little in game clicking mode is pleasant an rewarding.
Great game, only the second app game I have given 5 stars.
