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.
What's the difference between Trainyard and Express? In the full game there are more than 100 more puzzles!
The full game also has splitter pieces, which are AWESOME.

It's quite challenging, but I like it.
A truly unique puzzle game. Challenging and enjoyable.
After playing railyard ex for some time, and on exiting the other phone colors look blurry.. O.o
I understand that you guys need ads to make money off of the free version, and I am perfectly willing to deal with ads, but in all honesty, I would much rather have a top or bottom bar ad constantly there than have the game freeze up and load a full screem ad every so often, that is just annoying
