As reported by Touch Arcade, the Train Conductor itself is a chaotic game that sees up to five parallel, numbered train tracks running horizontally across the iPhone’s screen. Numbered trains are set loose on these tracks (but, of course, not in matching numbers), and you’ll have to hand-draw connecting pieces of railway in order to match up each train with the correctly numbered track. To put it simply, if a number 2 train starts on the number 5 track, you’d need to get the train up to the number 2 track. While that sounds easy enough, trains enter the screen from both directions, so the possibility of becoming overwhelmed is a real one.
The game’s upcoming update will see even more chaotic action being brought to the game, with the addition of two new American maps (the game’s previous maps are set in Australian locations): the Grand Canyon, and the New York City subway system. A newly formed Endless/Survival mode will also be released in the update, allowing users to test their skills without any set time limit or goal.
The update will be hitting towards the end of April, and will be free to users who have picked up the full title at its $1.99 price tag. If you’d like to try the game for yourself, before the update hits, head over to
