The only reason Transport Tycoon does not seem totally foreign to us is because it is so familiar. This is a game about creating lines of railway and road transport. I’m pretty sure there are too many people around the world who go to bed at night dreaming about train schedules and other minutiae of logistics planning.
This new version of iOS and Android in Transport Tycoon continues in this sense: as all games Sawyer, which is built directly on the foundations of its predecessor so it has a strong resemblance to locomotion, although the user interface is scratch – built for touch screens, is clearly channeling its PC ancestors.
Once up and running can place on a 3D map, you can zoom in and out using pinch gestures to zoom. The controls are pretty basic, once you get used to them. In the lower left corner is a selection of 5 icons. Each is for construction. You have an icon for each of the vehicles, roads, railways, buildings / factories and the end is to change the shape of the earth, adding trees in rivers and demolition of those things. Once you reach any of them, you get another column of icons on the left side of the screen with more options. I could list all the different options, but it’s easier just to say: There are a lot. And you get more as you progress through the game.
