Addictive puzzle game

Hypnotically fun.
This is a deceptively simple game that drove me nuts until 3:30 AM on a work night. It's the love child of Tetris and Blockade, set in a railroad switching yard. The rules are easy: lay down tracks so you can drive a train to a designated station without hitting other trains. Make sure your switches are in the right positions, and make sure you can route special high-priority trains at the same time. But you can't always put tracks where you want them. And keep the slow trains, fast trains, short trains, and long trains all running.

Love It!

Coolest train game on the MAS! Hope to see more games from this developer! :D

Horrible Game

A game without purpose or reward. Total waste of time.
