If you've ever been stuck on a late-running train and thought to yourself, "I could run the railways better than this," here's your chance to prove it.
Harking back to old strategy classics like Transport
and Railroad Tycoon
, this new mobile version offers you the opportunity to be a railway magnate, transporting passengers, mail and materials.
delivers all you'd expect from a railway-based strategy game. You build tracks and bridges (reshaping the land's contours to suit your purposes), not forgetting stations, then buy trains to run on them. Once you've got the above base elements, you just have to refit your trains and expand your network to get the dollars rolling in.
There's a Free Game open-ended mode, as well as a 13-mission campaign, which starts off with tutorials and then gets more complicated as rival tycoons compete against you (you didn't think you'd have it all your own way, did you?).
