Story:

In my hometown, there is a special competition every year.

That is "Muscle Jam: Manpower Railway 999"!

The muscle guys pull the handwheels to drive the train.

They will drive for 999 kilometers without stop to win!

After a year of training, our sextuples have very strong muscles.

I'm sure we can make it to the end this time!


Controls: 

Press and hold the left mouse button to drag the muscle guy.

How to play:

Muscle sextuples are constantly pulling the handwheels to drive the train.

When someone is worn out (hungry / sleepy / having a bathroom emergency), he cannot continue to work.


Drag him to the relevant carriage to regain the strength.

After the supplement, drag him back to continue to work.

There are 3 sets of handwheels,iu_359969_5249392.png

You need 2 guys to work together to drive per set of handwheels!

If one person is missing or worn out, the relevant set of handwheels cannot be driven! Or you can hold left mouse button at the idle handwheel to pull it by yourself! iu_360147_5249392.png

This a cute and fun way to waste five minutes!

Quite fun! Great graphics! I think you could have made the game a bit more tactical in some way, like like giving the player something to think about in terms of queues for different supplements?

this was fun, but those guys are so annoying at asking to go to the bathroom lol

WanZai responds:

I think that's humorous. However, go to bathroom frequently is a little difficult to play. So I updated 3 difficulty options here. There will be less bathroom in easy or normal mode.

I tried playing through several times and each time when I was almost to the end (about 80 -90% done) a guy would just disappear when I tried to drag him back to the wheels. Then two other guys would almost immediately need something causing the train to stop due to lack of manpower. Not sure if this is intentional and the game is some kind of a joke or if this is just a bug. Seems a bit odd that a bug involving a dragged object disappearing would happen at almost the same place each playthrough.

WanZai responds:

This may be that you put the muscle man in the wrong seat. There is already a muscle man there, so they overlap and look like someone has disappeared. However, this is a point that can be improved. I will try to modify it.

I like the theme, it's drawn well, could use some logic to how where they need to go, just so they can't get the same thing twice in a row. had one of em use the bathroom 5 times like damn you good man?
I think the main issue is there's no way to really speed up. maybe if you can click in rhythm to keep the train moving at full speed while you're down a guy? would add some complexity since you'd have to watch the other guy and try to keep up with the train instead of just waiting.
cool game though

WanZai responds:

Wow. I think you're absolutely right. Now when holding left mouse button at the idle handwheel, the train can be pulled. Thx so much for the advice.
