Pretty nice

This was a nice game to play, but my biggest complaint is that there is simply no sound at all and that does bother me a little. I still have to give you credit for coming up with something creative. I think this may be the first game I ever played that had you set up tracks for a train. I also like how you can get upgrades like being able to burn down trees. It has limited use, so you are able to pace yourself with its power. The graphics are good, if a little bland, and overall the game is pretty good.

Okay game

It was interesting, but the easiest way to make a game better is to add self-upgrades, such as a slowing factor, and there also needs to be something to fill the empty void. Add interesting graphics, because the same scenery gets tiring after a short period of time.

Good game

I enjoyed it enough to finish it, so I like it, simple and original, although it can be very frustrating, because of some little details that spoil the experience, and that could have been avoided: when you've selected a piece of rail but have not placed it yet, clicking on another piece from the slots should cancel the previous one (instead you can't select one until you've placed the first one). Another thing with the dynamite: I can't accept the fact that you can miss your target, this can happen because of the scrolling, very annoying, you should only allow to activate it on an object, not on the ground. Good overall

Fun game

Very addictive. I felt compelled to finish it, now matter how frustrating it got at times.

My biggest gripe is that it sometimes starts you off in an impossible situation. Twice, I started off going straight into a lake.

Also, you occasionally get a vertical line of obstacles, which can be damned near impossible to get through because of the slow recharge on the dynamite and matches. Speaking of those, sometimes the screen moves a little and you waste them on grass. Please make it so you can't activate matches or dynamite when you're not touching a tree or a mountain.

One last thing - the 90 degree track pieces are just about worthless. There aren't enough empty slots, so you almost never get lucky and receive two pieces that work together. Most of the time, you end up throwing them behind the train, just to get rid of them.

All in all, though, a great game. Some upgrades to the game play will make it very replayable.

i like this game

dont get me wrong i like this game its just that it needs music and maby a fast forword button would be nice and sum train upgrades would be cool:)
