Amazing game!

SteamPower1830 is a great game by itself, but I'd like to see a more explanatory tutorial on how to strategize to win a game, and I'd like to see more content like upgradable trains or a dual train track on 1 hexagon or trains that are unlocked as time progresses, to put a few ideas out there. Now I'm not one of those people that asks straight up for these ideas, I know making a game that is on Mobile AND Computer can't be easy, and I don't even know if the Dev team is big or just 4 guys in a garage so I don't expect big changes. But at least the game is updated every time there's a new iOS released. One more thing. The game could be made a little easier. Like for example, food is worth almost no monetary value later in a game, same for wood, but not as much. As I said, the game is fine by itself. I appreciate the amazing game that sticks out of all the other tycoon games on the App Store and even on pc too, I think.
I wish the dev team the best of luck on this game and future projects.

Overall Rating - 9/10 - 5 stars

Great game once you get the hang of it.

Very pleasing. After a kinda slow start and tutorial, the game picks up pace and you can experiment a little and find what works, like connecting tracks between 3 cities, allowing time for resources to grow and spread them out between towns. Focus one resource at least per town so there is always something to ship out. The game stalled a couple times. There’s no explanation at the beginning, but don’t waste time trying to figure out how to make an account. After the tutorial, you can set up an account. A couple of glitches will be taken of in future updates, surely.

Great game but late is a bit too hard. Also some suggestions.

This is a great game but the late game stages are too hard and should be made easier. The game stops becoming fun in late game because you are forced to work at an extremely fast pace and race the clock to the point that the game becomes less about actually playing the game and more about rushing the clock and usually failing. HOWEVER, if you like that kind of play style during the end of a game then you will love the game throughout the entire time you play it. If we could get free premium currency, say 1 gold every 1 or 2 days that we login, that would be very helpful. Also the wheels on the train engines do not rotate or move, so please make them animated. Also if valleys were added to the game with bridges being required to build over them and oil being a cargo available in 1920 would be great. This is one of the best transport games on the iPad. One last thing. Tunnels through mountain ranges please?
