Trainyard is a puzzle solving game unlike any that you've ever played. It's easy to learn but very tough to master. Your job is simple: get each train to a goal station. Red trains go to red stations, blue trains go to blue stations, etc. You control the trains by drawing track for them to follow. There isn't a time limit or even a score; the only thing you need to do is figure out a solution for each puzzle.

The first few puzzles are almost too easy, but as the difficulty increases you'll be thankful that you were able to practice the fundamentals of drawing track. As the game progresses, you'll have to use colour theory to combine trains of different colours, use timing to merge and split trains, and use every inch of your brain in your quest to beat the game.

Awesome Game 👍🏆👍🏆👍🏆👍

Just finished Trainyard Express this evening and although I have another great freebie game I'm playing right now............. I had to go ahead and buy the full version Trainyard!!!! It's not often I find games that get me hooked but this is one 😜that I find hard to put down!!!
I highly recommend it to puzzle lovers and everyone👍🎉🏆!!!!!!!
I am very impressed at how long I can play it without killing my phone battery!! It's very visually pleasing as well as challenging had nice audio effects to go with it!!! I can't say enough great things about this game!!!
Although I just started the full, paid version I'm already loving it and have not had one single problem with it!! I just wanted to mention that after noticing that other posters complained about it freezing etc!!
PI sure hope Matt Rix comes up with another great game to keep us busy after Trainyard.......kudos 👏🏆to you Matt and all who were involved in the creation and development of this fantastic game!!! Thank you for Trainyard❗🎈😉👌

Best Game .

Fun to learn, fun to play, very challenging and it gets quite complex. The trial and error of figuring out the hard ones is more fun albeit a bit frustrating.

The game fails after each puzzle, so you have to close the app and reopen. But from what I can tell, this is an Apple upgrade issue more than a game issue.... The game should be fixed, but it's such a good game, I couldn't doc it a star over it.

Really lots of fun. Hours and hours and hours of fun. There's also a free extension; or perhaps is a free learning app -- but play the other app before or after this app; it doesn't matter. I've playing both twice -- not quite done yet.

Phenomenal Puzzle Game

This is a great way to pass the time and give yourself a brain aneurysm at the same time! The puzzles start out deceptively easy but get progressively insane! But with each new addition to the puzzle, your sense of pride and accomplishment increase with each success!

I've beaten the game (finally) and I can honestly say there was only one puzzle (the second the last - Cooksville Creek) that completely stumped me. I had to look it up online. But every other solution was my own!

If you're into puzzles or trains, you've got to try this app and before you know it, you'll be encouraging your friends and family to give it a try!
