Symmetrain, high score chase in symmetry!

Choose your train and spot all differences as quickly as you can while driving from train station to train station. But be aware, every mistake delays your train until it disappears out of view.

Relaxing and fun

This really isn't a twitch game in the way most infinite runners are. It's also not a "squint your eyes and click randomly" game like most hidden differences games are. Symmetrain is sedate and simple, challenging you to just stay focused. The music is great for getting you in the right frame of mind, too.

Such an awesome game with a unique idea!

This is my first review so I hope you all can bear with me. I haven't unlocked all the trains yet, but so far I am having an awesome time with this game. From the peaceful music to the great artwork, Symmetrain keeps me wanting to play more. The game's unique twist in the "Find the Difference" game genre is its vital component and its a hook that captures me every time I open up the app. My body tenses up when I see that my train is catching up to a bundle of trees or buildings, and I have to pull my red emergency brake to slow down and catch the differences. What is also great is that when I don't feel like having my heart race, I can choose the "Extra" train to play a more quiet, serene level and just enjoy. I think people of all ages would love this game. It's something different, something new, something relaxing, but also exciting! (Can't wait to get the "Bullet" train!)

A Great 'Eye-Hand-Brain' Coordination App!

This award winning app, apparently created by a pair of German students, is a delight-- it requires a different skill set from most of the 'solitaire' games available for iOS, has marvelous visuals (more on that in a moment), and is simply fun to play. The home screen comes complete with hidden "Easter eggs", so that as you tap on certain of the passengers in the train station you get the design and music credits (among others), and even a comment from the Blue Bird of Happiness, as well as a sound track of a station, with overhead announcements.
If I have any complaint at all, it is that the trains run too fast-- it's impossible to take the time to actually admire all that has been included in the (too often!) asymmetrical scenery through which the various trains pass.
