Hi all, it's been a while since I posted about Storm the train! Much has happened with the game since our initial launch. Notably that we have ownership of the game from Chillingo and are publishing it ourselves.



That's given us and the game a new lease of life. We've been updating the code behind the scenes and adding some new features. In 1.6.0 the (most recent version), we've added 12 playable characters! We plan to continue supporting the game with additional content and features for as long as we can.

It would be great to hear from new players and those of you who played first time around - remember what the world was like back in 2012?

btw I've started a new thread as the old one referred to Chillingo as the publisher which is no longer the case.
Here is a link to the original thread.

Downloading now, i used to play this years back. Giving it another chance, bit nervous as it seems to have lots of IAP's though

Just playing it now. Nice run n gun game, i know its called 'Storm the train' but be good if there was a new version with differnet types of platforms, eg a base and other things rather than just a train

Controls are good, had a quick go and to be fair theres no major IAP problem so maybe its not as bad as i thought.

I'll play this much more later, look forward to seeing the updates

I played the hell out of this game back when it released. I'll give it another go.

Anyone who hasn't played this yet. It's definitely worth a download. Even if you did play it back in the day, it's pretty much like a new game. There's been a lot added to it since I last played it. Sure, there's some F2P stuff added, but it's still one of hell of a good side scroller.

We'd like to expand the events and generally what you do on the train with different platforms etc as you mentioned. Main issues around this is enemy AI as we'd probably require a different solution, one with more robust path finding.

This has been quite a big update so we'll wait for dust to settle a bit before deciding what exactly we update next.

Really pleased you like the update and that it feels fresh again. There was a some debate to whether it should be a new game - certainly could have been - but we like the idea of keeping the game alive and changing it to a format that has more of a future.

Is there an end to this? Or do missions keep going and going?

I've redownloaded this. Can you add a coin and gem doubler IAP? I would purchase that since it would be restorable. Especially now that it's not under Chillingo
