Excellent!!! - I've been a fan of the Trainz series for years and spent many hours designing my own network on the pc. This is excellent value for money and really enjoyable to play, the track builder is simple to use but anyone new to this might find it tricky but well worth the time. Re live your childhood moments and enjoy it all on the iPhone, brilliant :-D

Brilliant - Very good game! Very detailed trains. There's a track builder and it's really good, but takes a bit of getting used to.

Fantasty railroading - Stunning, ridiculous, creative, graphically beautiful , open to design your own layout, for the young in heart, highly detailed trains and locomotives.This is a fantasy world in which you can plan the layout of a lifetime. It is unlike any app on the market, and well worth the modest price. Go for it .

Wow, this one has better graphics, than the full blown Trainz 2012 version and that really says something.

Auran is known for updating their games marginally and then putting them out as new versions for full price.

Trainz is way behind Railworks, who give out their new versions as free upgrades.

So a Railworks fanboi interrupts a thread about a kids game on Ipad. Just go away and play with your graphics and lack of content. Free upgrades lol ... sure but you need to pay $30 for every new route .. only $800 bucks to get what i get in Trainz for free.

Anwyay.. isn't this an ipad/iphone forum .. how well does railworks work on ipad? oh.. it doesn;t

*bashers annoy me.

MFTS is a simple piece of fun. I'm way too old for it but if my nephews come around 'll show it to them for sure. It nearly captures the feeling of playing with a model train, but you can see they took a tran sim and wedged it into a kids game.

How about making the trackside camera the default position .. i.e. you are the kid in the room. Then you get a better perspective of the environment.

THe grphics are indeed a notch up on the Trainz for iPad .. hopefull that means there's an upgrade around the corner....
