Editors’ Choice

Another marvelous simulation from the creators of the widely acclaimed Tiny Tower, Pocket Trains expertly condenses the complex mechanics of large-scale rail transport into compelling gameplay. Starting with just a few rail lines, you’ll slowly add cars, tracks, and licenses until you’re delivering goods to major cities across Europe—and eventually around the world. A charming presentation imparts plenty of personality while helping make the experience of growing your empire thoroughly satisfying.

Player Experience

Dear developers

I have been playing the game for awhile and everything is quite perfect, although I really think that the game would be even better if added different time setting, some may agree as well. I have always thought that the afternoon setting was cool but became a boring setting after awhile; not trying to be unappreciative. Now I know there are limits to what you developers can do. However I think adding elements like different time or weather setting like nighttime, dawn, dusk can really add something special to your game. In addition headlights for the trains would be fantastic to give that aesthetic feel at night. I’m not sure if the team had abandoned the game. Surely not, but I would love to see some updates. Not only to improve your player experience but your game infinitely. Feel free to reply, as I want and wish the best for your games. As a genuine player, I thank you.

Its a little like being trapped in an unhealthy relationship...

I love playing this game, but it has several issues that I find so frustrating that at times I am tempted to delete it and just move on to something else. 1) You work like crazy to earn crates that contain engine parts so you can get more capable engines. But, about 40% of the crates turn out to be parts for the “steamers” which are the least capable engines and since you don’t need them, you either just stack them up in a yard or sell them off for peanuts. 2) I have also lost many crates just dropping them in a switching yard only to have them disappear when another train tries to recover them. 3) The map does not scroll. So, although you can build a track across the entire Atlantic Ocean from Lisbon, Portugal to New York City in the United States, you cannot go across narrow distance from Alaska to Siberia.

This game has been out since 2013 and I’ve been playing it since 2014. About two years ago it just disappeared and I lost everything - including lots of engines and routes that I paid real money for. The customer service folks tried to help, but I could not get the game restored. After a year off, I reinstalled and started over - because it really is fun, but although there are some new features, it still is kind of basic and glitchy. I’m still playing, and occasionally paying real money to improve my rail empire, but you might think twice before getting involved in this.
