Great game for the price!

My son and I enjoy building together but the repetitive advertisements for more stuff does get a little annoying. A previous reviewer said they couldn’t find tunnels to go different ways (horizontal vs. vertical) that took us a while to figure out, too: lay some plain tracks pieces across the area you want to put the tunnel (or whatever) then when you carry the tunnel over that area, it will automatically flip to match the existing track. This is different than the instructions! Hey developers, you could change the game instructions to reflect this :). Overall my favorite free game for my 3 yr old. So yeah, I’m about to buy one of the expansion packs because it’s hard to say no to a 3 yr old stuck at home in a pandemic... 😆

WARNING to parents from a parent

This game would get 5 stars if it didn’t, in my opinion, have a very unethical approach to in-app content. My three and a half year old loves the game. But it is literally IMPOSSIBLE for me as a parent to give him a version that doesn’t MAKE him ask for more. And that puts me on the hook for maybe $100. There is no free version here. Maybe to an adult looking at it. But to a kid, they just see a) all locked content as a part of the main navigation and b) continuous internal ads for that content. Repeat: Paying for content does NOT remove ads that are just a part of this app. And that’s a shame, because frankly, my kid loves it and I can’t afford all of it, so I’m gunna have to delete it. To be clear, the app makes it impossible that my child will be happy with it. That is unethical and also probably not good business practice. If you buy this app your child will quickly be asking you for the rest of the content. If you can afford to throw $100 at it, maybe you get the friendly version of this app that I’d rate highly. But as is, I find the whole thing really insulting and legally suspicious.

Fun But some Ideas!

Ok so when you finish the first set (Thomas) You get the next one That was number #1 This is number #2 The platform that you put the items on could be a bit bigger. #3 (Not really a idea) I just started playing and I Realized that this Was so FUN! I would actually start watching the show since I wasn’t really a fan. #4 A suggestion box in the game so you don’t have to leave the game that’s actually kinda long That’s my opinion. #5 Making the game online,you need permission for the person to let you join it. #6 (Last one) Using your skins and racing on your track to upgrade your skin.
