    I already searched and read some random posts here about this game. Since it has been out for a while I was wondering A) Is it worth getting and B) Does anyone still play it, or is it one of those apps you forget about after a few days?

    I messed around with the free web app and it seems pretty addictive and fun. Any feedback on this game is appreciated.

    played with it for a couple of days, downloaded a few other tracks, and forgot all about it until i saw your post. Some people get really into this app as you'll see if you download some of their tracks, but for me, it was fun for a few days...

    I played it on Windows Mobile and I liked it. However, like nickels I wonder how the iPhone / iPod Touch implementation is.

    I'm guessing that it's less precise than on Windows Mobile because there you could use a stylus instead of having to work with a finger.

    Also, does the iPod Touch / iPhone version include 'puzzles' in which you have to build a track, collect orange lines and stop on a finish line? This entertained me on Windows Mobile for quite some time, and would add a lot of value to the iPhone / iPod Touch version.

    @nickels - thanks for starting this topic. :)

    I find it a bit hard to draw but still fun. One of those thing I just pick up and mess with every now and then. Worth the three bucks if you like that kind of game.

    I personally never got into it, but I know lots of people have.
    maybe I'm just not good at it.
    I tried,and quickly lost interest in the web version, but I still splurged on the iphone version with the same results.

    If you tried the web version and liked it, than you will like this. It isn't a game at all really, but more of a sandbox toy. I have loved it from day one, and still pick up and doodle some tracks. But I can see how it gets old for some people.

    I would say get it.

    I am building a mega-track.. takes about 20 minutes to complete right now. Usually, I'll work on it like once a week. It's a fun game. :)

    The free web version is really fun - I guess it's time to "splurge" and pay for another app...

    Thanks for the info!
