  • Elegance is in simplicity
  • It shouldn't ever end.

" 'Train' your mind"

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. And, just in case you get lost, there's a kind community around submitting their solutions. It should be the last option, though: here.
