If you are a fan of puzzle solving, or a fan of model trains, you’re in luck. If you are a fan of both, you definitely want to mark May 1st on your calendar. With the launch of The House of Fables latest creation, Trains VR, we virtually get both. All wrapped up in a model train themed, casual, puzzle game!
Getting from point A to point B is only half the battle for any good conductor. The other half is usually the cleanup. With that out of the way, you can focus on solving the bigger problems of the railway. Things like, planning your track out using a limited number of tracks and avoiding any obstacles as you head for your destination. It’s all about looking ahead.
While this looks like a simple puzzle game, the difficulty is said to ramp up the further down the line you go. Puzzles involve driving your train through a set of waypoints, which require some careful planning. If the basic obstacles in your way don’t seem like a real challenge, you also have to deal with other trains on the track. If you can’t manage to get them switched over to another track in time, you might not have a train to conduct for very long.
Trains VR puts you in a nice birds’ eye view of the level and players have full control over the table your track is on. But, your inner child also gets in on the fun. You can shrink yourself down and ride your train as it makes its way through the track you laid. Sign me up, that sounds very relaxing. Be sure and look for Trains VR, for the Gear VR, May 1st.
