Introducing Rails, the official remake of Shortline Railroad, one of biggest and most addictive gaming sensations of the 90s! You're controlling the railroad today! Build tracks and guide trains to their stations, keeping the rail yard collision-free. Control the railroad switches and signals to lead trains from Point A to Point B, raking in money and earning achievements along the way.
You'll be on your toes with the 12 different train types. Trains with a long line of cargo, those with time bombs, vigilante trains that won't stop, and many others!
You can also play Rails on your Mac.
● 12 types of trains
● 30 achievements
● 60 unique levels
● 3 seasons
● Compete with others in the Game Center
● Ready for the iPad with Retina display
What's New in Version 1.1.3
Fixed the problem with black screen appearing in the game process on iOS 8.
Amazingly addictive, even though nearly impossible!
Really genius complexity of grid setup so no two games are alike, nearly infinite range of setups. But also very frustrating!! The first trains come quickly, and the delay of a missed switch at any time will almost inevitably lead to a crash!! Definitely keeps your attention and hard to stop trying to improve score! I wish there were a “do-over” choice, to play the same station setup again; some are really elegant but once gone will never come again with the infinite variety. Also wish there were a way to skip the slow train (handcar) Chapters - the long waits are not fun! Music and trains are delightful, but you will curse these designers frequently with the constant crashes! But you can never go back to jewels and tetris games!
This puzzle game is not hours of mindless bliss. You become very engaged with each challenge and they are never alike. Then, not only do you have levels to try to get to, but you also have to acquire icons/rewards.
Best played on an iPad. Loads of fun, but I feel good in stating that I highly doubt anyone could pass this game on the first few times, maybe even the first 100+ times for that matter.
Yes... It's so simple to do, it's just not easy to keep track of everything and get the tracks to go the right way.
Great concept and graphics, but the music is soooo repetitive, and you cannot turn it off!! Well you can but then you don't hear the bell which is necessary for game play. Also the maps are randomly gen each level, which is bad, since some are way harder than others. So you can just keep hitting restart on each level until you get an easy one. Ch 2 maps however are gen as you go. John Henckel
