I've spent some time with the updated version and it looks much improved. I enjoy this type of sim, usually playing more complex types on the PC, but this is a good fit for mobile, more suited to smaller screens and quicker levels.

There are a number of train routing games on the app store but this is the first one I've seen that attempts to simulate a control room.
A diagramatic panel shows states of trains, signals, switches, crossing gates etc. Plus there are phones for notifications of trains entering the section, and for track condition warnings. Individual timetables are provided for every level enabling routes to be set up in advance. The small videos of approaching trains are useful visual cues of train location and direction of approach.

Operations start off easily and gradually become busier so the pause button and varying game speeds are helpful. The first 12 free levels work as tutorials, adding one control parameter at a time, so it's a reasonable learning curve. At present there are a further two premium levels at a dollar each.

Although presented as a simulation it also plays like a puzzle so there is some replay value to each level to improve scores and obtain 3 stars. Now I'm about to start the UK scenarios.

I've reinstalled to see the latest update. It's all looking much improved, mostly. Always good to have more levels. The statistics and results display is clearer, and I like the new GUI. Simple and effective.

On the negative side, the reason I deleted after a while was due to something I previously mentioned in the development thread; namely the small size of the timetable text and its display box. Progressing through the levels requires more time scrutinising the timetable and I just find it difficult to read easily. There seems to be room for a larger font; doubling the height would help. Also dark green text against a black background doesn't offer much contrast. In addition, a taller display box would allow more future train times to be seen, helping with planning. There seems to be room on the screen for this. Even if a larger display obscured the tracks sometimes, this would not be a problem as the display can now be hidden.

We will surely take this up in next release. Is there any other feature you would love to see.

Thank you for your response.

Yes, as it happens, there is another feature I would love to see A visible indication on each train showing if it is in forward or reverse gear, as I sometimes forget. I would suggest changing the colour of the REV box when in reverse gear.

Bearing in mind there are green and blue direction buttons on the separate controller, perhaps the REV box could be green when in forward gear, and blue when in reverse to match those button colours.
