Description

Loco-commotion is a train-based puzzle game. Players are assigned a series of locomotives that must be moved from one part of the screen to the other. There are various obstacles and challenges along the way. A series of buttons (which change based on the level) allow you to assign jobs to helper locomotives. For example, one locomotive will build a bridge, another will repair a bridge, another will explode on contact with, say, a rock-fall that is blocking the tracks. Progress from one level, and you get another, with the levels getting progressively harder. Some levels are timed, and you must get your locomotives to the end point or start the level again. As all this is going on, you get this snappy music playing in the background.

It's Lemmings! Lemmings driving trains, I tell ya!
