“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.”

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

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.

No, I don't personally like nor recommend Train Valley but oh boy does my wife play the crap out of it. Moral of the story: this game definately appeals to some folks in a serious way.

Essentially, this title is a pure puzzle game - the train part is just a skin. If you are here because you like trains, do yourself a favor and see yourself out now. If you like puzzles in the same vein as Mini Metro, keep reading. You build tracks, and tell trains when to stop and start all while helping them get to their destination. As you play a level (which can be completely seen on one screen), a few new hubs pop up as time goes on. There are three goals per level, which each earn you a stamp in your train book. You manage money, to a certain extent. This game is difficult, so beware.

Why don't I like it? Well I find it incredibly tedious to juggle everything in my head, and often, one mistake makes you totally want to start over. Whether it was because you missed out on a stamp/goal, or because it ruined the flow of your play. I also think the track laying mechanic/controls could be substantially better. Yeah, you get used to it after a couple of hours, but c'mon this isn't rocket science.

+Although it can be quite difficult, this feels and plays like a zen puzzler; definately charming
+Music is great - BUT man they need to put some dead air in there sometimes - it's on a constant loop and you will start to go nuts after an hour or so
+Easy to learn, very difficult to master

-Out of all the puzzle games I've played, I don't really find this all that addicting, personally
-Music is great - BUT man they need to put some dead air in there sometimes - it's on a constant loop and you will start to go nuts after an hour or so
-No controller support

It's certainly a niche game. If you find yourself intrigued still, I'd go for it.

When I got this with my Humble Bundle Monthly I thought "What is this kiddy BS nonsense?" 4 hrs later I'm thinking "Choo Choo, Trains are awesome!"

Seriously, this was a pleasant suprise.

At first glance and after playing tycoon games with vast maps it’s easy to think this game is for the young. We were challenged within the third level, losing trains and going bankrupt.

The logistical nightmare is just so much fun and you’ll find the stress of managing so much lingering in your chest.

Train Valley is only $9.99 USD ($13 AUD) this game is easily worth $20 USD in our books. It’s a bargain price and you’ll re-visit this over and over. Amazing effort from the 3 man team.

Not a building strategy as it might seem on a first glance, but logic puzzle directing trains to right stations, switching track, building them so more trains can pass without coliding... it is a simple concept but very catchy, I am surprised noone thought of this before. For a few bucks, it is a great game to play for a few minutes every day.

A simple, relaxing, casual game. The goal is to build a train track that will transport trains to their designated station colors before you run out of money. More stations pop up over the course of a level, so you must modify your track to adjust while keeping the trains moving and making you money. Not very difficult, enough to be engaging without being frustrating. There is no plot here, just navigating waves of trains until the level is complete. Got this in a humble bundle, and I have to say, it's nice to play a carefree game like this on occasion.

The game was perfectly fine until the developers decided that randomly pushing out trains from random stations with barely a heads up is good game design.

Not to mention that this feels like a $4 mobile/tablet game.

(Received with the humble monthly bundle)

The train part only consists of closed scripted maps per level and the sandbox mode only shows the same closed level maps... I don't know if you can rotate the map as the trailer shows.

You have to manage yourself the train crossing and beware of trains going out of stations on their own, or else your tracks will explode everywhere, Michael Bay style.

As other said, il you like fast speed strategy games, this one will be hard enough for you. Take a first look at some let's play before buying it...

Bonus point for colorblind mode!

Oh, and the tutorial is very light : you can pause the game to better think of your strategy!

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!

Its short real time puzzle-strategy game . I kept on coming back to it and I had a lot of fun. Its addictive game, and if you have free 10-15 min for a little game break from work its for you. You can come back to it many times each day.

Great little game! Fun gameplay and very nice sound effects and music. Took me 16 hours hours to finish all content in the base game + Germany DLC. And I wish there was more content, they should do another DLC. There's a sandbox but that felt kind of pointless and offered no new challenges.
