The Voxel Agents’ popular locomotion-themed time management game, Train Conductor, has just received a huge update adding “complete support for the iPad and Retina Display as well as a total facelift”. Now players who own both small and larger form-factor iDevices can play Train Conductor on both their iPhone and iPad in the glory of their full resolutions with just a single purchase. To celebrate this, The Voxel Agents have actually made Train Conductor FREE for a limited time.
If you are unfamiliar with the game, the premise is fairly simple. You must use your finger to guide the numbered trains to their appropriate tracks, avoiding collisions as you make your way across Australia. As the number of trains increases, the game gets tougher and more frenetic. To add to the fun there are also day and night game modes, Plus+ Global Leaderboards and Achievements.
Existing players of Train Conductor can download the update for free in which they will also find the Sydney and Melbourne levels completely revamped and improved. The Train Conductor series has previously been awarded Best Game Audio, was a finalist for Best Game Design at Freeplay 2010 and also won the prestigious IGF China ‘Best Mobile Game’ award in 2010. Apple featured Train Conductor in the “Highly Addictive Games” promotion, and it has been selected in more than 50 countries for the “What’s Hot”, “Staff Favorites”, and “New and Noteworthy” sections.
The game has also received a special Easter-themed update as well, so if you haven’t already checked out Train Conductor, then now there is no excuse not to do so. The game will only be free for a limited time. The sequel, Train Conductor 2: USA (also a universal app and also just recently updated) is available for 99¢ from the App Store.
