I like the way you took the time to explain how the game is played.

This game is pretty cool! I like when it starts being chaotic hahaha! rated! please check out my game too :D

This was so chaotic! I love it.

Super cool game. Reminds me a lot of Mini Metro. I loved being able to make my own railway systems! Super cool mix of strategy + reaction. Nice work!

Submitted(+2)

I really like the concept that you can create your own level, and by the same time, your own chaos! An easy way to improve the game would be to put the train the same color as his tracks. Overall, you really did a great game, kudos!

Chaotic and fun! Nice take on the theme, good job!

That was really fun! Love the chaos, and I like that you are active both in the puzzle element planning and with the realtime element ghosting your trains! Reminds me of the game Mini Metro...

A very nice look into the theme! I liked the use of trains out of control, because they still are today XD

Submitted(+2)

The idea is great! Really clever. Got to some intense situations there ha ha. Good job!

I would appreciate it if you'll have time to check out my game.

Submitted(+2)

Nice job! I loved the track building mechanic and the "out of control" on this one. Well done! :D

Very nice game I like the risk vs reward nature. I would like it if the amount of time a train had in ghost mode was better communicated. Also when in the tutorial It's pretty easy for a new player to click on the dialog box and accidentally start building.

I agree! Hard to test everything in a 48 hour period. But In a future update there are plenty of changes to make! Thanks for the feedback!

Really fun and addictive. I loved being really greedy and having to stop the trains really fast but also make a lot of money. The game offered a lot of strategies such as that one and it definitely got out of control! The art was probably the only part of the game letting it down a bit but that's only because the rest was so amazing! Overall the game was very creative, original and enjoyable to play, great job!

For the art we were kinda going for a subway map vibe, but im glad you enjoyed it!

Submitted(+1)

By the art I mean more how smooth and polished it was, not the art itself if you understand what I mean. Some of the curves had slightly jagged edges which looked a bit unprofessional but I liked the style itself.

this has gotten more addictive as I play.  Will continue to challenge myself with more track. Thanks

Really fun and addictive :)

Very cool to see a game like this in the jam

Submitted(+2)

Interesting idea, I initially thought you were supposed to cross the train paths for the same train line to make a station hahaha. Well done!

Submitted(+2)

Truly a fun game! I saw Mark play this on stream and it looked amazing. I'm happy to say it is great fun. I love the risk vs reward system the game creates. You should continue working on it, I could see more levels with obstacles to avoid that you could pay to destroy or rivers you have to build across or city areas where you get more people but it creates a bottle neck. I can't wait to see what you do with this. Good luck with the Jam!

Developer(+1)

I like your ideas! I wasnt planning on doing much after the jam but now everyone seems to suggest i expand on it, so I might have to do that once I have time!

Submitted(+1)

That's the best part of game jams, you can spitball an idea and see if it's good enough to continue putting effort into

Submitted(+2)

This is a very cool risk vs reward idea! You should keep developing this idea.  Congrats on submitting a cool train puzzle game to the jam.  Please check out my web browser game when you can :D

Really unique. I loved it.
