This is a fun game and I’ve enjoyed making tracks as much as my son has. The layout is simple. The graphics are fun and the trains do fun little things when interacting with one another. I love all the little obstacles and what they do to the trains. But for the life of me I can’t figure out how to rotate a piece! Can the developer help? Surely you must be able to rotate a tunnel so it can go horizontally too? (EDIT: The developer has responded that there are two versions of each tunnel-like piece. I still only see one direction of each piece. For instance, the only tunnel piece is north-south.)
I’m a teenager and I still play this because it’s just FUN, and as a kid I would love watching episodes of Thomas. I don’t know if nostalgia is the word, but there’s some almost sentimental value to this game and just something about playing with toys and building stuff with them that’s calming. All without spending, what, like ~$100 on all the Mini toys? (Edit:) $20 bucks?? Not what it said a second ago... And no more tables to build on??? Hmmm.... Add, like, 20 tables or something big like that and I will put a higher star rating. It’s misleading, having the boxes on the table and also the prices displaying incorrectly. (Though the prices having difficulty displaying is easily forgivable)
My younger son is huge Thomas fan as well as trains in general. For about six months, this was his preferred game for when he was allowed screen time. And, although he hasn’t played it quite as often, he still picks it up and enjoys it. Admittedly, the overall cost of the game with its DLC is prohibitive if you buy it individually; however, we started using DLC unlocks as part of a reward system, which ended up being perfect. Long story short - the game is worth it if you have a Thomas enthusiast as it’s involving enough to go beyond the toddler years.
My 2.5 year old absolutely loves this game. We sit down and build tracks almost every night, and he loves saying the names of all the trains. However, I wish there were larger tables to build on, and we both wish you could place more than 3 trains on a table at a time. There are so many adorable trains and unfortunately you are only limited to 3 on a table at a time. The total cost of $20 is also kind of pricey, but was worth it for how much fun we have.
My toddler loves this game but even after paying full price for all of the DLC it still has a button that opens ads for other Budge games. What does this mean? I still can’t sit him down with this without him getting off onto a screen he doesn’t need to be on and getting stuck there. So he plays for a few minutes, hits the “B” button, then whines because it goes to an ad. So I have to stop what I’m doing and get it back to the game. Seriously Budge, I’ve dropped $20 for this game so remove the ads completely you greedy pieces of dirt. Think about your customers and not yourselves.
