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.

Pocket Trains

I like the game, been playing a real long time.I let my granddaughters play, its kinda like a geography lesson and they don’t know it.I used to be world wide but then I sold everything off to consintrate just in North and Central America. I usually don’t buy much, I just keep my trains running which builds bux and coins. After reaching my goals then I might buy something. One of the things I’d like to see is the ability to double track between cities. Especially between your busiest cities. This becomes more needed since all the yard capacity can be doubled now. The two tracks could be the same company,same color even. You could label them East and West bound, North bound, South bound.A and B track whatever,like the real railroads do. You could build the second track the same way as the first track. I like to call this game a creative way to do nothing. Keep on training and thanx.

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.
