894390_2Thanks to the encouragement of overly generous grandparents, I had a ridiculous model train set as a kid. Since then, I've always had a place in my heart for train games of all types. Promo Ideas' recently released Wild Wild Train [App Store] is an action-puzzle game that likely will have massive appeal for rails fans, but also is a good enough game to be worth looking in to even if you're not crazy about trains.

The goal of Wild Wild Train is to manage your trains and route them through the various switches on the tracks to pick up all kinds of different color-coded cargo which then needs to be delivered to the station with the corresponding color. Sounds simple enough, and the first few levels are pretty easy, but Wild Wild Train quickly adds multiple trains as well as bombs to be disarmed and damsels in distress to be saved by the special hero train. Run over the damsel in distress with any other train and it's game over, or, more appropriately in a game like this, it's CURTAINS for you!

Between each of the 24 levels the delightfully corny plot is unveiled through a mixture of HDR photography, 3D trains, and dioramas laid out like a comic book. These 24 levels take place through 11 maps, which gradually increase in complexity and the amount of trains you need to manage at once. At its peak, you'll be dealing with 3 trains, bombs and damsels popping up everywhere, and enough track switches on screen to make your head spin.

Wild Wild Trains has a look and feel that just perfectly fits the mood the game is aiming for. If you're in to fast paced puzzle games, like trains, or just so happen to have an extra dollar in your iTunes account, check out Wild Wild Train.

    Hmmm, trains aren't really my thing. But hot girls wearing leather and stockings tied and gagged on a train track are.
    Downloading now :p

    When I saw Trainz by Zagg, I didn't buy it because it looked lousy. But this on the other hand, looks fabulous in compare, with great 3D graphics, great art, and just in general, a lot of fun! Downloading! :)

    This reminds me of the really annoying mini-game door locks in Rachet and Clank.

    But I feel all burned! I bought it thinking it was a very polished version of something like Zagg's Trainz but instead it's more of a "how quickly can you solve the puzzle" game. I far prefer randomized traffic control games where it's all about getting highscores, not best times in pre-scripted scenarios no matter how well done it might be.

    I am enjoying it not only because I am a model railroader in my rare spare times. Nice graphics. Fitting old-fashioned music. Lots of the elements (track plans) are looking like a Maerklin model railroad (H0 scale).

    It does seem ridiculous that it wont install on a first gen ipod touch. The only difference I know of is I don't have an external speaker. Not exactly a biggie as I am used to silence by now. Grrrrr.

    This is a rape simulator, the girls are basically bound in sexually explicit manner. Very bad taste, I wonder how Apple approved this.

    • kikoe

      they accept anything and it's a strategy game. prick.

    I have to say I will not buy this because of the bizarrely over-sexualized imagery. For heck's sake, why?

    I understand a lot of the readers here could care less. Maybe it's a matter of age. To an old geezer like me, who needs the bulls***? Just give me the game!

      Maybe she should be wearing a Quaker outfit? I'm not sure what proper damsel in distress attire is.

      Chillaaaaaaax! It's just a bit of humour. Hardly counts as pornography.

    Hey, I'm a woman and I'm not offended by the damsel. It's such a funny cliché and what's wrong with a little bondage fun?

    I bought this game a week ago and I cant get off of it. Its so addicting since its constantly challenging you to step your game up. The story line is actually funny to. Anyways overall this game is great and for 99 cents its a steal. Dont pass up the opportunity before they realize they need to up the price.
