elleelle_epicrail_image2.jpgIn Epic Rail, an addictive albeit circuitous new action-puzzle, simulation game from Edit Undo, your long-postponed childhood dream of being an engineer are, well, still on hold. Instead, you sit at the railway control desk, routing trains through color-coded stations, carefully changing directions on the appropriate junctions. Send locomotives along the correct tracks toward their destinations, all the while avoiding an epic fail: screams, explosions and carnage!

Epic Rail might seem a bit prosaic at first glance but as you start to play, its charms emerge: clean design, atmospheric and entertaining special effects, ease of controls, and multitask-masterful puzzles... all engaging the fun factor. Perfectly time your reactions and employ strategic planning if you want to earn brag-worthy railroad medals. Should your color sense be unreliable or simply biased, choose symbolic "color hints" under options. As you advance through Epic Rail's 34 levels, the job grows distinctly more demanding with longer tracks and more—far more—junctions to control. The challenge is definitely enjoyable although there's a smidgeon of repetitiveness in redoing levels unless you possess skills in quick and precise clicking. Besides, living out your very own Unstoppable moment of eminent heroism is too tempting to resist. You can now forgive a certain jolly, white-bearded someone for not delivering the model train set he promised that day at the mall.

Made it through a few levels so far. Just got through one that sends in 1 train at a time. For this level, an "engines remaining" counter might be nice, though I realize it would be redundant on some other levels.

The first time I crashed, I said "oops" and then couldn't help but giggle. Good thing its not real life! ;)

Would like to put this out to the excellent gamers at JIG: My team and I were unable to fully complete the game in Gold for the official in-game walkthrough after more than 3 days of trying. If anyone wants to tackle the challenge and get some videos of levels 32, 33, and 34 done in Gold... I'll include them as part of the official in-game walkthrough. Just contact me about it through YT. -Tass

This reminds of Subway Scramble, a great game that I played on Big Fish, I think, but which I have been unable to find lately. Ever tried it?

I like this game. I would love this game if there was an unlockable option to flip the junctions with keys instead of clicks. Perhaps after achieving a gold medal. I just feel the need to be able to 'play' the junctions on some of the higher levels.

My thanks to the developers for including a colorblind-friendly option. The extra effort is appreciated.
