Ratings and Reviews
Great game, but it could be the best.
Tiny rails has not failed to astound me. I’m not usually a huge fan of these types of management games but the art style reeled me in and the gameplay has kept me hooked. This game has some of the best game references I’ve ever seen and the gameplay itself is a diamond in the rough. Despite my countless hours in the game there are some issues and annoyances but that’s to be expected. First, checklists once you get out of the U.S. These checklists simply become icons and have no way to see what it is that you have to do unless you look it up. Second, taking optional photos is rendered useless when important monuments are crowded by simple houses and buildings. Third, the storing of goods into warehouses is almost completely useless. Unless I can sell to stations directly from the warehouse they serve no purpose. Fourth, there needs to be a way to set a course or at least a waypoint from the cargo menu to places that have a demand for that good. Finally, there needs to be a way to set an infinite loop in an area as I’m trying to obtain miles in Asia while being offline but the train goes to Australia and loops there instead. Once those are fixed there will only be a perfect game left over.
Good potential, lots of bugs
The game is neat and can be entertaining if a number of bugs is resolved. Not in order of importance, 1) notifications that the train arrived, while the train has just left a station. Consequently, no notifications when the train actually arrives, so I miss all waypoints. 2) Little transparency as to how to earn money. When I started, every time I logged there were credits coming. Then at some point the bank suddenly dried out and now I can’t even afford the whatchacallit machine to get new cars. 3) What is the deal with the car weight? My train is always 10-30% over, and continuous improvement of weight doesn’t seem to have any impact whatsoever. 4) Got a bonus mission to clear snowmen from the tracks. Having played for a couple weeks now, not a single snowman to be seen. 5) Just a side note, is it supposed to inform some action that passengers say “jerk” and some such? I don’t see any functionality to interact with the passengers or improve their morale other then adding food and game cars. 6) If removing obstacles is an important part of the game, it should not be taking several minutes of watching the screen to get one.
All I currently do is check in at destination station to trade goods and advance the mission. I was hoping to have some interaction while the train is running, but it’s just landscape watching and nothing is happening.
Different than others and a little buggy but overall great game
It’s a great game and what I love is that it is different than other train sims out there. This game is definitely one of a kind. Also each play is different. What I mean by this is that this game is very forgiving. I have seen some games that if you run out of money or gas etc. you lose the game. I have been playing since beta (I have seen pictures of the alpha)and I can definitely say that the alpha&beta stages of the game are beautiful because that we have seen a lot in this game and, remember back to when the upgrades and the engines/cabooses were on the same screen! That was a long time back! Anyway, I also wanted to talk about the bugs as well. One of them is if you activate the secret (spoilers) full throttle than open up the edit sceeen the train will stay down instead of going up like it’s supposed to. Next if you grab 2 train cars with 2 fingers they will overlay each other and when you release them one of them will stay in place. Please fix these. Also it needs the repair and cleaning mechanics from pc as well. Adding this would definitely add to the realism already in the game.
P.S. Please update the video in the App Store!
