Description

With the swipe of a finger, players deliver trains to their destinations, and collect experience points to progress through four iconic Australian locations. Each level introduces different traffic conditions; such as long-haul Gold Rush trains, broken tracks, and Ghost and Demon Trains. Train Conductor also introduces new elements to the genre with a time altering Fast Forward mechanic and score multiplier system.

History

In July 2009 we sat by the riverside and brainstormed more than 50 game ideas. We spent two weeks making six of them into very dirty prototypes. The murky train connecting gameplay concept shone very brightly and it was a group favourite to play, so we explored it further for two more weeks before we knew it was going to be absolutely awesome. We built it from scratch in four months, and it launched in December 2009.
