The video reminds me of Subway Scramble, a great game that was published by Playfirst for the PC years ago. I can't remember whether or not Gamelab created the game.

Does anyone have any impressions for Mini Metro?

Wondering if there is any Game Center integration as well.

The newer games often do not display the GC icon but it still happens to be integrated.

It's like a guessing game with game center at the minute. Always delighted when it turns it is. Leaderboards for every city (plus city extreme) and days here with plenty of achievements. I picked this up as AndyC83 tweeted about it. What better endorsement!!

The tutorial isn't great. Have no idea how to switch the line I'm using or how to delete lines.
