    A great mix of strategy and time management, Pocket Trains offers a lighthearted and awesome diversion for rail enthusiasts with a sweet tooth for cuteness.

    Overall however, I think Pocket Trains makes a lot of strides with its core gameplay, making it the sort of logistical title that I think Pocket Planes aspired to be. Suffice to say, there's really no reason not to check out Pocket Trains, and I highly recommend everyone giving it a try.

    Pocket Trains sticks close to NimbleBit’s successful Pocket Planes and Tiny Tower, but it’s not hard to understand why. This is a fun ride, and best of all, it’s free.

    Pocket Trains is yet another extremely satisfying simulation from NimbleBit.

    Like many new iPad games, Pocket Trains is a free game to play but an expensive game to be successful at. Unlike prior Nimblebit titles like Tiny Tower, getting "bux" is no longer a luxury and is basically a necessity to expand your railroad empire.

    Unfortunately, "bux" seem to be much harder to come by than in previous Nimblebit games, which practically forcing you to either buy a bunch of them, wait forever for them to randomly appear, or give up in disgust. I choose the latter option.
