September 11, 2009 | Comments Off on Friday Fun: Train Traffic Control

Train Traffic Control: Objective of the game is to allow trains to stop at the station while preventing them from crashing into each other. Each train carries goods and you earn money as it is emptied at the station.
Simple but when more trains arrive, it gets crazy. Also, i did not like the scrolling/panning left-to-right. It would be nice if one could see the whole section.

It took a while to figure out but after the instructions when you are ready to play, click on the little red MAP icon to get rid of the overlay map and start the gameplay.
