Stuck on a puzzle? Visit http://trainyard.ca/solutions where there are over *1.5 million* player-submitted solutions.

Trainyard is a puzzle solving game unlike any that you've ever played. It's easy to learn but very tough to master. Your job is simple: get each train to a goal station. Red trains go to red stations, blue trains go to blue stations, etc. You control the trains by drawing track for them to follow. There isn't a time limit or even a score; the only thing you need to do is figure out a solution for each puzzle.

The first few puzzles are almost too easy, but as the difficulty increases you'll be thankful that you were able to practice the fundamentals of drawing track. As the game progresses, you'll have to use colour theory to combine trains of different colours, use timing to merge and split trains, and use every inch of your brain in your quest to beat the game.

Now there is yet another edit @ 7.15 centering the original price statement.
Yeah... Partly my fault I guess. I finally centered the text to make the price more obvious

AFAIK it comes out in the states @ 11 pm EDT. Dunno about the rest of the world.

And yes I'm picky about time and clocks and stuff

But yes I CBT'd this game months ago and until now it remains on my ipod, it is that awesome .

Thanks for making this thread Prab! I didn't even consider that it would come out earlier in certain places because of the time zones, but that definitely makes sense. Gives me time to fix up the screenshots and stuff like that a little bit before it comes out here

I made Trainyard and Disco Zoo. You might like them!

Starting to get emails from people in New Zealand who are enjoying the game... I guess it's only a couple hours until it comes out here.

hmm user created levels would prob do better on an iPad due to more space=more variety unless you add a scroll feature to iPod/iPhone

yeah I think eventually if I add user created levels, it'll be in the iPad version... but that's probably a long way away
