RailRoad Madness - Highly Rated Traffic Management Game $.99

We at F84 Games recently launched RailRoad Madness.

For those of you that love Flight Control and Harbor Master we think you will love it!

You tap the arrows (move in clock wise direction) to ensure the trains arrive safely in the cargo or passenger stations. In no time you will be responsible for several trains and the “madness” begins.

One reviewer said, "Railroad Madness is a challenging game with an addictive nature and pretty slick graphics. A good game for the fans of traffic and time management games."

Check it out and tell us what you think, we always appreciate your ratings and feedback.

There was a thread about this game earlier but i dont think it was by the developers. Now that you guys are here i can tell you that the general vote from the other thread was that you need to remove the tap to turn mechanism. It just does not work well and makes the game harder and less fun than it could be. You should be able to either tap a track to switch instantly to it or swipe in that direction to switch to a track. I own the game and have played it a lot so i can tell you the tap method is frustrating. If it was changed i see this being a top 100 game easily. Good game but could be great. If you find the older thread you will see that most people agree with me.

Here's a link to the other thread.

I'd vote for swipe from an arrow in the track directions to set it. The current control is very cumbersome and distracting from could be a fun little game.

Thanks for your feedback. You're right we've heard this from a lot of players and we are working to make the update so you can tap or swipe the track.

Keep on the look out!

Thanks again -

It's actually quite fun. In the current state it's fun but slightly frustrating due to the direction change. It will be amazing once the swipe feature is added, can't wait.
