Mini Metro is a simplistic strategy game where you must design train lines connecting different parts of one of many major cities. You begin with three lines, three trains and some tunnels (number of tunnels depends on the city) and each week you unlock a new train to use as well as one of two other things such as a new line, more tunnels and carriages to attach to your existing trains. As time goes by new stations will open and you'll need to connect them to existing lines or create entirely new lines, managing your lines effectively is key as the game ends when a station is overcrowded for too long.
+Simple but fitting art style, it looks just like London Underground maps and I can't think of anything that would suit this game better
+The controls are nice and simple, all you have to do is drag your mouse from one station to the next in order to connect them
+Already quite a few different cities to try out
+It's incredibly relaxing to play
+If the default game is too bright for you (if you have sensitive eyes like myself you may find this) then you can turn on Night Time mode which makes everything considerably darker
+The UI is very basic and stays out of your way most of the time which really adds to the feeling that you're looking at a real map
+There's a number of different types/shapes of stations, having to connect one of each type to each line to move passengers effectively adds a nice level of challenge to the game
+As well as the normal gamemode which I briefly explained earlier there is also an endless mode where station overcrowding does not end the game and your only goal is to make your city as effecient as possible
+Station positions are different every time you play
+As is expected of such a game you can fast forward time as well as pause (pausing is very handy if you want to completely redesign all of your lines)
-At the time of writing this review there's no sound effects or music in the game which is a little odd though the developer is currently working on sound, this will be removed as soon as that update comes out
-No way to save your progress on a city, if you have to leave the game for some reason you lose all your progress
A Masterpiece in the Making (9/10)
A simplistic strategy game that has a great concept, a fitting art style, simple controls, simple gameplay and is ever so relaxing to play. If you're looking for a simple strategy game to play or you're a regular user of the trains in one of the playable cities then you really need this game.No drama, Just Reviews?
