DescriptionThe Train game is a railway set simulator with a top down view perspective.
The main goal of the game is to pick the passengers which are waiting for the trains at the several stations distributed on the railway. To do this the player has to manage the changing of the points of the tracks by pressing the respective letters of the connections. If a point is not properly changed a train will be derailed and a life will be lost. Depending on the colour of the passenger he may only be picked up by the train with the respective colour.
The player has to avoid delays otherwise passengers waiting at the stations will become so furious for the waiting that they'll prevent the train from carrying anyone else except them. If the delay becomes too long, there's the possibility of someone being pushed onto the rails because the station platform has become full. In this case the player loses a life too.
There are two track layouts to be played which can be loaded separately. Each one may be played at 7 different levels and except for the 7th level which has 9 sub-levels, every other has 7 sub-levels. When all sub-levels are complete the player is taken to the next level.
