There’s been a lot of great games for the iPhone lately and now I have another one to add to the list. Trainyard is my latest addiction. Trainyard is a game in where you draw tracks on the screen to get the train (or trains) from Point A to Point B. It’s definitely not as easy as it sounds because a lot of different elements eventually come in to play. You can cross different color trains to combine their color, combine trains into one train, paint trains a different color by directing them through a paint square and lastly split trains into two by crossing a “scissors” square. Now put all of these elements together and the game gets really hard. The cool thing about Trainyard is that there is more than one solution for each puzzle so you can either do it the hard way or do it the intended way, it’s your choice.
Trainyard is a very difficult, mind-bending game. It makes you feel very smart when you complete a level, much in the same way Braid did. Depending on how much time you have to devote to the game you may be stuck on a level for a day, maybe longer. Another great feature is the fact that you can share your solutions with others. Even though I feel like it’s cheating and would never view someone’s solution until after I completed it, I still think it’s an awesome feature. You can share your solution via Twitter or Facebook. When you share with people a link is placed in your tweet or post that takes the person to Trainyard’s website where they can watch your solution right on the website.
Trainyard is an addictively difficult game which I recommend to all iPhone users. The difficulty progresses at an even pace so don’t feel intimidated by it. It’s a great way to test your brain. Trainyard is only $0.99 and is truly a steal at that price. Do yourself a favor and download it now.
