Coop or competitive online game about making way for your railroads which you have to build fast. You control a character with basic movementsCoop or competitive online game about making way for your railroads which you have to build fast. You control a character with basic movements and you only use two tools, one for wood and one for stone. Furthermore you can equip your train with extra wagons and improvements, such as dynamite producer, extra space, ghost wagons, jet pack and such.
The game is divided by stages, so your goal in each one is to reach the final station by putting down the rails in front of your train. If you fail, the train will derail and game over. The players tend to block each other, even the terrain complicates movement. They can use predetermined icons for simple interactions.
Very simplistic, colorful and in later stage somehow confusing change of perspective. There are few models of character. There is a day and night cycle, during night each player has its own small light radius. Orientation and planning is important. The map moves slowly to the right towards the final station as the train moves, leaving the left side of the map covered but the player can wander off there. The main menu is nicely done controlled as if playing game itself.
REPLAY VALUE 5/5
The coop offers three difficulties and few modes. As you progress further, you have new fauna and flora, some is just annoying, some dangerous, some slows you down and some prevents you from advancement. You can collect some yellow things while running around. Each map is randomly generated seed.
It is soothing, little playful, good ambient sounds, not distracting from my objectives and nice at the same time.
Normal and Hard. Gets really nerving when your team does a lot of mistakes.
HOW LONG TO FINISH
Competitive mode lasts for few seconds, depending on the player skills and speed. Other mode can be endless.
Graphically: Kingdom series
Gameplay: Overcooked!, Minecraft
Original coop multiplayer with simple controls and limited maps. It is like Minecraft from a top-down view with objectives, the map keeps track of your distance so when the game is over, you will see a presentation of all your railroad through the map which is a satisfying look.
Early access game with well implemented ideas. It is what it is. Time limit is crucial factor. Communication options could be improved together with additional view options, like zooming and disabling flip screen which I personally welcome.… Expand
