A simple yet awesome puzzle game.
Trainyard is one of those puzzle games designed by the Devil himself. You easily learn the basics, figure out the first ten levels or so and you may even feel like the tutorial interludes are unnecessary. In addition, you'll realize soon that there may be a bunch of solutions for each puzzle, so why not continue playing a few levels more?
Trainyard is not about graphics or music. In fact, it could be name "whatever puzzle", because it's about trains the same way it could be about boats, ships or petunias. It's all about to make a blue thing arrive to a blue goal, and red things to red goals. You can also 'crash' a red and a yellow one to create an orange one and be able to access an orange goal. There's no clock, nor score. Your mind and you are alone on this. And believe, there are a lot of levels ahead. No matter how hard was the last stage you solved, it becomes imperceptibly more difficult each time till you realize that your trains are following insane loops and combinations, merging and splitting in a perfectly timed choreography.
Trainyard is a game that everybody should try, at least, once. This is the free version to test the first levels out, though can directly go to the paid version because that's we gave it a flamboyant 5 out of 5.
And, just in case you get lost, there's a kind community around submitting their solutions. It should be the last option, though: here.

Trainyard Express is a puzzle solving game unlike any that you've ever played. It's easy to learn but very tough to master. Your job is simple: get each train to a goal station. Red trains go to red stations, blue trains go to blue stations, etc. You control the trains by drawing track for them to follow. There isn't a time limit or even a score; the only thing you need to do is figure out a solution for each puzzle.
Trainyard Express Features:
+ Innovative and challenging puzzle mechanic
+ Smooth difficulty curve
+ Over 60 fantastic puzzles
+ Hundreds of ways to solve each puzzle
+ Solutions can be found on Trainyard.ca
+ Looks GREAT on tablets!
+ Engineered for low battery usage
+ Colour-blind mode
+ A year in the making
+ Developed in one person's spare time(support indie games!)
The first few puzzles are almost too easy, but as the difficulty increases you'll be thankful that you were able to practice the fundamentals of drawing track. As the game progresses, you'll have to use basic colour theory to combine trains of different colours, use timing to merge, and use every inch of your brain in your quest to beat the game.

this was a great game. I've solved all the puzzles and am debating buying the full version. it starts out easy, but gets tricky pretty quickly. One of the best puzzle apps I've found.
One of the best games I ever played.
Brilliant logic game
What is with the popups every few levels now? Banner ad, fine; popups, deleting now. Will stick to paid version, even though I enjoyed playing the different puzzles in this.
this game requires creativity, good thinking and flexibility. It's awesome
Enjoyed it quite a bit. Took me some time to solve them, but they are achievable!
