Late this afternoon, Eli and I spied a true App Store find: Trainz Driver [$2.99]. Don't let that ridiculous "z" in its name pull a fast one on you -- this is a train sim game that seems to take conducting as seriously as X-Planes takes piloting. In the game, you can control different trains across a wide variety of environments that feature realistic terrain. A free roam mode lets you conduct at your leisure, while a mission-based arcade mode gives the game a bit of oomph, as it introduces various scenarios that test your mad skills.

Speaking of skills, you should check out ours just below. Watch me as I break all sorts of laws, risking the wrath of the train police in the process.

We're definitely planning on giving the proper Trainz game, Trainz Simulator [$6.99 (HD)], a go at some point this week, so buckle up for that if this video is something you enjoy.

    If you kept messing up the tutorials, you probably needed more TRAINing.

        Don't apologize guys. At least your puns are enterTRAINing! Get it?... Because the game is about trains... Wordplay is fun!

        Restrain yourselves... *sigh* ..Okay, the novelty is officially gone.

    I saw this yesterday and even though I have no interest in trains, I'm thinking about buying it just for the lulz.
