Candy Train [Free] is one of PopCap's old and forgotten titles that originally appeared as a Flash game back in 2003. It's since been resurrected as free universal app through their new game development division 4th and Battery.

The premise of Candy Train is quite simple, an engineer has screwed up the train tracks in Candytown and it's up to you to fix them. Accomplishing this task involves tapping on the various tiles filled with train track on the screen to change their direction in order to route the train around. You'll be picking up candy that appears, as well as extra train cars.

After connecting enough cars, you'll head to a station, which both frees you of the extra cars as well as starts the next level. If your train derails, it's game over.

For a simple puzzle game, it doesn't get much better than this. The graphics are both bright and colorful, and as expected, gameplay is a ton of fun. PopCap's 4th and Battery was originally started with the idea being that they'd be releasing smaller games based on strange and edgy game ideas. While I'm not entirely sure that Candy Train is strange or edgy, it's hard to argue with yet another fun and free game. Don't miss Candy Train.

     Reminds me of Loco Motion, which I used to like on Intellivision! (Oops, I just dated myself.)

    I had to say this game is damn HARD! I not sure if i'm the only one who feel that way, but it was damn hard for me. The game play is only 25secs at most!

      Yes. It took me a long time but I finally got past level 1. (Then died right away.) 

      It's really fun though. My 3 year old loves to watch it. He loves candy, and he especially loves trains! 🙂

    It's a fun, challenging game, but what happened to 4th & Battery being the experimental division? They released a port of an old Astraware/PopCap game. Umm.

    How come I can't find that game for download anymore?
