Reviews

“Overall I’d have to say Train Valley is one of the more enjoyable puzzle games in recent years, combining logical thought with time management, all at a pseudo-relaxing pace.”
8.5/10 – Game Debate

“Train Valley is available from Steam for £7. I think it’s certainly worth it.”

“The gameplay is the real winner in Train Valley”

About This Game



  • Build railroads in order to connect cities, tunnels and bridges. New railways are cheap when laid across bare fields, but can be expensive when demolishing forests, villages and other existing structures.
  • Manage increasing traffic by constructing, switches, sidings and spurs so that multiple trains can run without delays, at the same time.
  • Stay accident-free by precisely controlling trains during crucial moments, using pause for planning (you can build railways and schedule trains while on pause).
  • Play through 4 seasons: Europe (1830–1980), America (1840–1960), USSR (1880–1980) and Japan (1900–2020).
  • Complete the story mode featuring such real-life events as the Gold Rush of 1849, the construction of the Florida Overseas Railroad, World War II, the Cold War, the launch of the first manned space flight Vostok 1 and more.
  • Explore the game in different game modes: in story mode (5-10 minutes), in random mode (15-20 minutes – the level looks and develops differently every time you launch) or in sandbox-like regime (can be turned on for both story and random modes. It allows to play without time and money limits).
  • Discover 15 types of trains – from early steam-powered locomotives to modern high-speed trains, driving 18 types of cars – from old-time passenger cars to hoppers and cisterns and to military-use tank and gun platforms.

Big disapointment. The only thing you build is track. Trains and stations pop up, and all you do is keep trains from crashing. I was hoping this would be another RR tycoon type game. It is not.

This is a great little game that's easy to pick up and tricky to get right. While the early levels are extremely simple, the difficulty ramps up quickly and you'll soon find yourself struggling to complete all the objectives.

There's some great polish here, everything fits together very well, and the sound adds a certain ambiance that really makes it shine.

While some more DLC and larger, more complicated levels for those that want to really test themselves would be great it's already a fun experience and totally worth the price.

Fun little game, really challenging too if ur like me and want to get the best score in each level it gets pretty hard and sometimes just really makes u almost wanna rage quit :P, but yeah im really enjoying the game love trains and this is a fun game with trains in it :D! Really worth buying, levels are challenging and fun to play, scenery of the levels is beautiful too look at, train desings are pretty cool too its fun that they have multiple train designs and not just one boring train who goes on every track. The game also has a sandbox mode haven't used it myself but there are probably some people who might find that fun too :)! Im just going to stick to the challenge mode :)!

9/10 Worth buying if u like trains :)!


Edit: Forgot to mention that this game also has different Timestamps so like for example the first few levels are like from the 1800s and the more you progress the further you get with the time, also the game has different enviroments so ur not really sticking to one place for the whole of the game, no they actually take you through alot of continents so for example the first few levels are based in countries in Europe so after you complete those levels, the next continent will be America and so on, it doesn't STICK with one level design throughout the whole game it actually CHANGES from designs, trains, continents and even countries which makes this a fun little game :)! WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS GAME!!!

First, dont have an impression you get some new railroad tycoon. Its a puzzle game. Fun little game, nicely satisfied my casual puzzle game thirst for a while. Look nice, never saw a bug/game crash and seems solid. Only negatives that frustrated me a bit was that, while maps were set, the locations of stations changes, which creates rather annoying arbitrary randomness to the game.

What is it?
Train Valley is a casual game where you must lay tracks to connect multiple stations to each other, and route trains without crashes or delays with the goal of sending trains to the correct station marked by a coloured flag. It's not a tycoon or serious transport management sim and there is no cargo or passenger quota to manage. It's more a strategy/puzzle type of game that challenges you to meet a set of goals before time or money run out.

What's to like about it?
It's silly in a fun way as the difficulty ramps up and you find yourself frantically clicking switches in the hope of avoiding crashes or wrongly-routed trains. Some trains are faster and longer than others and it soon becomes manic. Don't even think of trying a delaying tactic! Keep a train waiting long enough and it will release itself whether you're ready or not! The tutorial is somewhat scant but the game is intuitive to play with a simple interface. You are not automatically thrown out of the game if you suffer a collision (luckily) though your profits take a hit and you'll probably need to do some track repairs. You are given a set of objectives to meet for each location - of increasing difficulty with a greater number of stations to be served.

What's not to like?
Quite honestly, not much. At first, it feels a bit TOO casual (ie Facebook style) but as the difficulty and number of stations ramp up, the game becomes a real challenge of strategy and timing. The graphics are somewhat muddy and aliased (no in-game options to correct this). Station colours can be a bit obscured by train flags at times when there are a lot of things going on, and a couple of colours are a little too similar which adds unnecessarily to the level of difficulty (for example: the orange and yellow station colours look very similar). These are all minor gripes however, and don't detract from the fun of the game.

In summary...
Train Valley is no 'Sid Meier' or other type of management or tycoon sim, but it's a fun and addictive little game easily worth its low price. Recommended!
