Railroad Tycoon is a game that reaches both to strategic gamers due to the vast amount of tactics involved and to folks who simply want a fun, social time. The International English Edition has the English language box, rules and cards. The game board, shares and engine cards are in a European language (this does not effect game play).
SteamPower1830 is an engaging strategy game for iPad and iPhone. Lay the tracks to build a thriving railroad and business empire.
As the Golden Age of the steam train dawns, you create your own dynamic world of railway lines, cities and steam locomotives. With superb HD graphics, great gaming depth and intuitive control, this game is an absolute must-have for strategy and train fans. EastCoastFrom, Amazing game!SteamPower1830 is a great game by itself, but I'd like to see a more explanatory tutorial on how to strategize to win a game, and I'd like to see more content like upgradable trains or a dual train track on 1 hexagon or trains that are unlocked as time progresses, to put a few ideas out there.
Now I'm not one of those people that asks straight up for these ideas, I know making a game that is on Mobile AND Computer can't be easy, and I don't even know if the Dev team is big or just 4 guys in a garage so I don't expect big changes. But at least the game is updated every time there's a new iOS released. One more thing. The game could be made a little easier.
Like for example, food is worth almost no monetary value later in a game, same for wood, but not as much. As I said, the game is fine by itself.
I appreciate the amazing game that sticks out of all the other tycoon games on the App Store and even on pc too, I think.I wish the dev team the best of luck on this game and future projects.Overall Rating - 9/10 - 5 stars. IAPyrodoc67, Great game but late is a bit too hard. Also some suggestions.This is a great game but the late game stages are too hard and should be made easier. The game stops becoming fun in late game because you are forced to work at an extremely fast pace and race the clock to the point that the game becomes less about actually playing the game and more about rushing the clock and usually failing. HOWEVER, if you like that kind of play style during the end of a game then you will love the game throughout the entire time you play it.
If we could get free premium currency, say 1 gold every 1 or 2 days that we login, that would be very helpful. Rising world download. Also the wheels on the train engines do not rotate or move, so please make them animated. Also if valleys were added to the game with bridges being required to build over them and oil being a cargo available in 1920 would be great. This is one of the best transport games on the iPad. One last thing.
Tunnels through mountain ranges please? ColtonSuperGame, Pretty Good GameThis game is a pretty good game to play and makes for a fun experience. However there a few things that I feel restrict the game from five stars. The game is a hexagon based game, which—while making controls easier—causes there to be very limited building and creativity in a round. There is some limitations for the game from the micro transactions.
Sure these games allow the game to be ad free, but the micro transactions block about a 3rd (on average) of the things you can get in a game.However the goods outweigh the bad on this game as, while there may be some hindering, the way the game is played and how all of the money and monopolies work make it an absolutely great game to play.
Dear Abandonia visitors: We are a small team that runs one of the largest DOS Games websites in the world. We have only 3 members of staff, but serve 450,000 users and have outgoing costs like any other top site for example: our servers, power, rent, programs, and staff. Abandonia is something special. It is a library of old games for you to download. It is like an old gaming arcade with all the old games in their original format.
Abandonia is a place where you can find great old games and have fun four hours and years. To protect our independence, we are dependent of our friends using the site. We run on donations averaging around 6 USD (5 Euro).
If everyone reading this gave the price of a cup of coffee, our fundraiser would be made easier. If Abandonia is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online for another year. Please help us forget fundraising and get back to Abandonia. This is a Sid Meier game and it's one of those that put this genius on the pedestal he is on now.
Along with Pirates and Civilization this has got to be one of his best games. Off course there were many follow ups and clones of this game, but if you ask me, nothing, and I do mean nothing, comes close to this game!!!So what's it about? Bounty hunter video game.
You are an industrious and ambitious businessman trying your skill in railroad business. And this game really has it all. You can play on many different levels and I'll explain what I mean by that.First off you chose the map on which you'll play. You can start building in either England, eastern part of North America, western part of North America or in continental Europe. Depending on which map you choose, you'll start in different years. England built its rail network first, so that map will take you in the first half of the 19th century. And the further back you go in time, less choices of engines you'll have.Next you choose the difficulty level of AI.
And this really does make a difference, because every level will get tougher. You have four to choose from and the toughest one will be almost impossible to beat!But that's not all. Each difficulty level presumes you'll chose different reality levels, but you can modify those at the beginning or during the game. What's a reality level?
You can chose to do your own dispatching (holding the trains on the station, forcing them to wait, so they don't crash), having complex economy (if you don't chose this one, every city will accept all goods you'll deliver to them, if you chose this one, then you'll get a list of goods a certain city or some industry not placed in a city will accept), and last but not least is the cut-throat choice (if ticked then other tycoons will try to get you out of business by taking over your lines). So you have many choices from the beginning on and that certainly adds to re-playability.But what do you do in the game? Well there are many things you can do. The basic income is from the profit your railroad is making, but that's by far not all. You can buy and sell stocks of other companies, speculating with their stock.
Running others out of business or taking over their lines. You can expand the stations by building post offices, hotels, restaurants, which can bring some money and increase the number of passengers and mail (and also freight).
You'll see some priority deliveries that will show up random and will demand you to howl freight from one station to another (earning extra money). Basically you must connect as many cities as you can and build as much industry (unless playing without complex economy) as you can. Don't forget to build some maintenance facilities along the way, so trains don't give out on you.There are also two ways of fighting the opponents.
You can either try to take over their business or disrupt their lines. The stock market depends on your wealth. If you have enough money, you'll be able to buy more then 50% of their stocks and take over their company. But disrupting their lines depends on your railroad building skills. If you connect your railroad to a city that is a part of somebody else's net then this city will decide for one of the companies. Their decision will be based on performance. The one who can bring most goods and passengers to the city and deliver most of their supplies to other cities will win.
The looser will have to redraw from the city. This can even cut a line in half. On the other hand if you connect to a city owned by a company you took over that will increase the net worth of your company.There are simply so many things to say about this game, that I could go on for pages and still wouldn't say enough. The game play would score a 10 on a scale from 1 to 5. The game play gives you 200% of everything. But what about the graphics and the sound?
Well they are good too! The sound consists of a pleasant adlib tunes and some sound effects. There are also some animated scenes that are quite funny. You get VGA graphics that more then effectively do the job.I'll only mention one other thing (for everything else read the ). You build by holding down shift and using the numeric part of the keyboard.
Function keys from F1 to F10 all have a certain function. First 4 will zoom in and out on parts of the map; others will bring out different reports. F9 will get you in touch with the stock broker.In the end, when you either retire, are kicked out of business or have been in charge of the company so long you'll go into peaceful retreat you'll see how good you've done. Every time you really improve your performance you're offered a better job (meaning if you left the railroad business you would have all the qualifications to do that job). It's a nice way to end a game and enter the hall of fame.So what are you still waiting for DOWNLOAD; DOWNLOAD, DOWNLOAD and PLAY, PLAY, PLAY!!!There were some problems with the link to the manual.
To get the real manual either click the PDF manual link in the extras, the bold word saying MANUAL within the text, or clickThis game works fine in WinXP, but you must select MCGA graphics. You'll get the same amount of colors as with VGA, but no animation. If you select VGA under WinXP the game won't start. The best way to run the game however is still the DOSBox.
