Voted the Mac App Store "Game of the Year" for 2016!

In Mini Metro, you take on the task of designing the subway layout for a rapidly expanding city. Your city starts with three stations. Draw routes between these stations to connect them with subway lines. Commuters travel along your lines to get around the city as fast as they can. Each station can only hold a handful of waiting commuters so your subway network will need to be well-designed to avoid delays.

The city is growing. More stations are opening, and commuters are appearing faster. The demands on your network are ever-increasing. You'll be constantly redesigning your lines to maximise efficiency. The new assets you earn every week will help immensely — as long as they're used wisely.

Eventually your network will fail. Stations will open too quickly. Commuters will crowd the platforms. How long the city keeps moving is up to you.ou.

Key Features

• Compelling, constructive, hectic, relaxed gameplay. If that makes sense. It doesn't though, aye? You just gotta play it.
• Three game modes: Normal for quick scored games, Endless for stress-free sandbox play, and Extreme for the ultimate challenge.
• Build your metro exactly how you want to with the all-new Creative mode.
• Twenty real-world cities to design subways for (London, New York City, Paris, Berlin, Melbourne, Hong Kong, Osaka, Saint Petersburg, Montréal, San Francisco, São Paulo, Seoul, Washington, D.C., Cairo, Istanbul, Shanghai, Singapore, Stockholm, Mumbai, and Auckland). Each has a unique colour theme, set of obstacles, and pace.
• Random city growth, so each game plays out differently. A strategy that proved successful last game may not help you in the next.
• Each game's map is a work of art, built by you in the classic abstract subway style of Harry Beck. If you think it's a keeper, save it, tweet it, show it off or make it your desktop background!
• Responsive soundtrack created by your metro system, engineered by Disasterpeace.
• Colorblind and night modes.
• Trains! Did we mention them yet?

What’s New

Entertaining and Different Every Time

This is an entertaining game. It starts out slowly and then out of no where, one of your stops is filling up. It's fun to connect all the stops logically and create quick commutes for the passengers. No two games are the same. You can play the same map for hours and it'll be different every time.

Very relaxing

I am picky about games, often trying one and then ruling it out and deleting it for various reasons... this one is a keeper! It challenges me but does not stress me out and I really like playing it. Seems complicated at first, but you get the hang of it very quickly.

Good game

It is very fun game. It suffers from same minor flaws as iOS version: no option to speed up boring early minutes, no way to fix small routing errors (like when 5 pixel move to the side would save you a bridge), impossible to grab trains when they are at the station, etc.

In short a very solid game, sadly dimished by many unforced errors of design and UX.
