    Just thought I'd let everyone know that Trainyard Express is coming soon. It's free, so it's kind of like a lite version of Trainyard, but I've created 60 brand new puzzles just for it.

    It's coming out on "Trainyard Thursday" (this Thursday, Sept 30th).

    If you haven't played Trainyard before, this will be a great chance to try it out. Trainyard has great reviews from pretty much everyone who's played it, and there have been over 6000 user solutions submitted to Here's a screenshot of the stars from every single written review worldwide:

    To get an idea of how the gameplay works, you can watch the Trainyard trailer:

    Here's the App Store description:

    + Innovative and challenging puzzle mechanic
    + Smooth difficulty curve
    + Over 60 fantastic puzzles
    + Hundreds of ways to solve each puzzle
    + Easily share your unique solutions on
    + Engineered for low battery usage
    + Color-blind mode
    + A year in the making
    + Independently developed(support indie games!)

    Trainyard Express is a puzzle solving game unlike any that you've ever played. It's easy to learn but very tough to master. Your job is simple: get each train to a goal station. Red trains go to red stations, blue trains go to blue stations, etc. You control the trains by drawing track for them to follow. There isn't a time limit or even a score; the only thing you need to do is figure out a solution for each puzzle.

    The first few puzzles are almost too easy, but as the difficulty increases you'll be thankful that you were able to practice the fundamentals of drawing track. As the game progresses, you'll have to use basic colour theory to combine trains of different colours, use timing to merge and split trains, and use every inch of your brain in your quest to beat the game.

    So yeah, hope you all like it. Watch for it this Thursday :)
