Review: Train Conductor

Fast action Aussie game where you need to control the cargo trains into the right stations...avoiding a crash!

View on the App Store: Train Conductor - The Voxel Agents

Features of Train Conductor:

  • You really have to think and act fast in this game, it challenges your quick decision making skills.
  • Multitasking and strategic thinking abilities are enhanced.
  • It is so much fun trying to get the trains into the right station (numbered) within the limited time you have.
  • Watch cause and effect in action!
  • Can you manage the overall job? This game gives you the ability to see the overall picture and try to keep control.
There are 5 different Australian areas (levels) where you need to act as the train conductor.  Your job is to deliver all the trains to the correct track whilst avoiding crashes!

You see 5 train tracks with entry points on both left and right, each is numbered 1 to 5.  This means that trains come from both directions. When you see the red light light up you know that a train is coming from that direction and you have a few seconds to mentally prepare...each train is also numbered and your job is to match up the numbers...fast!

The trains speed up as you progress and you have to move them to the right tracks without them crashing.  You can stop the trains by tapping on them, but you ultimately need to keep them fast moving to win the game.

Each area provides different challenges, like the long gold trains in Sydney and the broken tracks in Melbourne!  

To add more fun and challenge to this entertaining and hands on educational app you have a NIGHT feature.  This gives you the same five areas to manage but you are moving 'ghost' and 'demon' trains.  You must deliver the demon trains to the right track to win, but the ghost trains do not crash...this allows you to practice your decisive and quick action skills without the added stress of crashing...a great add on to the game adding extra value for money!

This iPad App is recommended by: iPad Mum - Google Plus

Our RATING:

10 out of 10!

Age Group:

6-Adult

This game is for 6 plus and only for children who like challenge, my youngest boy (7) thinks it is too much pressure, whereas iPad Lad (10) thrives on the fast pace and sense of competition!

All in all a great Aussie game that we highly recommend! Adults who enjoy a challenge will enjoy it too as a quick interlude from parenting! No reading required.
