About this game

Control trains: operate & drive trains through different landscapes, earning coins to spend on Driver Training runs where you qualify to upgrade your license to drive later, faster, locomotives.

Start with Britain’s 1928 steam train Morayshire, then upgrade to diesels e.g. U.S.’s Santa Fe, Britain’s Freightliner + Class 460 (Gatwick Express), & Australia’s S class (Southern Aurora). Peak with Japan’s Bullet Train! Then there’s 2 mystery locos to unlock.

You can play offline – no WiFi / no internet required – you will just miss out on Rewarded Videos offers.

FEATURES
- Addictive gameplay: simple controls, well graded difficulty, one-hand play possible
- 6 famous Locos to unlock: diesels from U.S., U.K., & Australia, & Japan’s Bullet Train!
- Two mystery locos to unlock! Hint: Steam train, & a movie-inspired one
- Realistic train sounds
- For mobile gaming: SaveGame your progress so you can play for a few minutes at a time
- Compete worldwide with Google Play Leaderboards & Achievements

GAME OVERVIEW
- Play Long Haul first, collecting Frees & earning Coins from pickups & reaching stations. Your locomotive can only travel a max of 10 stations due to the track changing size (gauge). To advance into the next 10-station map, play Time Challenge to upgrade your locomotive to a newer/faster one.
- Time Challenge: Replay each of the 8 tracks as fast as you can (swipe up+down to change your speed) to keep beating your best times. You need to lower the Total Time of all 8 tracks to upgrade your locomotive.

INSTRUCTIONS

CONTROLS BRIEF
- Prevent crashing by tapping left/right of screen to change the tracks ahead, & in Time Challenge swipe up/down to change your speed
- For Pause/Quit Game: use your device’s Back Key

LONG HAUL
- How far can you go?
- Keep train on correct track by changing the points: tap left/right of screen. Your speed is fixed
- A Dead-Man's-Switch appears top-left: tap it before 0 to avoid an emergency stop
- Earn coins for Time Challenge & MultiPlayer by completing levels & picking up coins
- Pickup FREEs for free-runs in Time Challenge
- Tap all 3 AutoPoints pickups – 10 secs of speed & Auto Points!
- Upgrade your Loco in Time Challenge. Each Loco starts at later stations (& higher score) & faster
Tip:
Use the FREEs you pickup in TimeChallenge before they overflow, by quitting LongHaul often (your game is saved)

TIME CHALLENGE
- Unlock new Locos by lowering the Total Overall Time of the 8 tracks
- Choose each track & beat your best track time
- Upgraded Locos have faster top speeds, so re-run all the tracks after you upgrade!
- Speed control: Swipe screen UP/DOWN. Since tracks change too, remember to swipe on the side of screen of required track's direction

Fun game at first but after you play a while it dead-ends fast. Can't pass to the next set of very short levels unless I pass time challenge. OK. I did do that & got the Red Diesel. Can't go back to the Steam Engine from start of game. The Red Diesel doesn't even follow the tracks through switches. REALLY? This is the same engine in all of your ads but it doesn't even follow the tracks? Advertisements non-stop, long 30 second LOUD ads too! Can't buy more routes or trains with in-game currency.

Hi Bob, thanks writing. Firstly, when you unlock all engines, all 8 become selectable for all games. Re: loud ads, I have no control over ad's vols, so suggest having the in-game vol on Max, & turning down your device's media vol. Re: the diesel not following the tracks I'm - confused, as it does? Please send more to support@chrawfish.com cheers!

I love the easy to use interface and the colours are very nice. Its a lot of fun to play, and the time trials and track variations make it fun to 0lay over and over. I wish there was a train whistle but the free auto-tracks make up for that. Well done Chrawfish.

Thanks for the great review Matthew! Glad the bugs and issues are much less now. The whistle feature is on the wish-list so hopefully you may see it shortly...

The time challenge is really hard. Instead of unlocking the different locos by completing time challenges, could we use our game coins or instead of time challenges could you unlock by completing missions? Otherwise a great game.
