Now on sale. Tried it and find it quite good. Only a few minutes in but there's everything I would ask for in an oldskool game like Transport Tycoon. Nice is the first person view from the vehicles

You have to plan ahead and connect different cities/companies etc. with trains/roads to maximize your profit.

The only problem might be the small screen on my phone - an iPad would be better imho.

I bought this earlier too, on ipad, not far in - but if it's not ropey later on - it's clearly the best transport/economic sim on ios.

It's just someone else's version of a Transport Tycoon, interface and UI is fine.

Worth a gamble for 69p.

Purchased for .99 for the HD version on ipad - cannot believe how good this game really is! Easily worth much more. Only complaint is difficult at first to learn how to play IMO but at this price you definitely cannot go wrong! And best of all - no stupid IAPs!!
I think it is easily best simulation on iPad for this type of game.

Wow! I will try it. Is it possible to control directly the vehicles from the first person view?

You set the routes for your trains etc. and can then 'ride' them in first-person-view but you cannot control it yourself.
