Explosions. Screams. Carnage. These are what await the player if they fail. To succeed, they must prove their reactions, multitasking abilities, and planning skills in order to safely guide the trains in each level to their correct destinations.

Epic Rail is a fast-paced game about trains which tests players' reactions, abilities to multitask, and skills in planning ahead and staying alert. Each of the 34 levels offers a unique challenge - but the overall idea stays the same: guide all the trains to where they need to go, without losing any or crashing them into themselves or each other. Do this as fast as possible to earn medals!

The game is controlled using just the mouse. Each level has a number of train-track junctions which can be controlled by the player by clicking on them to switch the direction they send trains in. The first level has just two of these to warm the player up - later levels have over thirty of them!

PLEASE NOTE: Clicking junctions adds one second to your time, so to get the gold medals you must also try to use as few junction changes as possible!

UPDATE: Front page already! Awesome! Thanks, Newgrounds!

UPDATE 2: If you are getting a message telling you the game is not playable in your location, please try refreshing the page a couple of times. If it still doesn't work, please PM me and let me know what browser you are using, what country you are in, and link to a screenshot if possible. I don't yet know why this is happening, it's not something I have built into the game - after all, why would I want to stop anyone from playing? :)

Very good game!

This reminds me of the "Unstoppable" game I played before here. Unlike that game, I am actually fairly good at this one. What I really like about this game is how you are really able to take your time with how fast you play the game. It can be frustrating when everything's so specific. This works well because you have a lot of oppurtunities to get your stuff started on even without trying in the first place. While the graphics aren't that well detailed, they're still done nicely.

The best thing about this is how you can play it at your own pace. It's interesting to use this perspective, because you get a good view of everything. I am glad this nice little game did not go by unnoticed. The sounds are nice and fairly authentic. It's really fun to play when you start to get the hang of it as it goes on.

Great & addicting

Oh my, this is addicting as hell! I like it. A lot. But I must suck, got stuck already to the "Runaway" -level, I was nearly there when those two darned trains crashed... Not for f's sake gonna check the walkthrough. Visuals, music, sounds and the idea, all great. Definitely a game for my taste.
