Wild Wild Train Review
- Excellent artwork.
- Quick and responsive controls.
- Music is limited.
- Difficulty significantly increases early on.
There's a kind of beauty in managing to solve a puzzle while your trains are running at full-tilt around a track, yet manage to miss each other (if only barely). Wild Wild Train is almost a love-song to the model train hobby.

Model train hobbyists would understand that there's a certain poetry to getting their trains to run on time. In particular, getting all of the trains on their stretch of track to smoothly and without delay manage complex paths without creating collisions is sometimes frighteningly hard. This is where Wild Wild Train by Promo Ideas steps in and creates a puzzle game that by its very nature will always be harder than it looks.
Managing your trains involves several steps; Firstly you can control the individual speed of trains on the track by selecting them and dragging a bar to adjust how fast they go; Secondly you need to switch the direction a train takes by flipping switches on the tracks; And lastly, if you can do all of this while picking up color coded cargoes, avoiding or rescuing damsels tied up on the track and avoiding bombs that are nefariously laid down, then you can move on to the next dastardly challenge.
Each of the levels are colorful and vibrant, though fairly similar in design, but the attention to detail in their layout that matches a hobbyist's table-top creation. Puzzle elements are easily identifiable for quick selection, though the fillagreed buttons in the menu can be slightly confusing at times.
Wild Wild Train is a complex and unique puzzle game that quickly challenges players to think quickly and act even quicker. Puzzle enthusiasts should definitely add this to their collection.

Wild Wild Train is an action-puzzle-strategy game that allows you to manage up to 3 trains while try to avoid crashes as you pickup several kinds of different color-coded cargo which then needs to be delivered to the station with the corresponding color before time runs out.
First levels are kind of easy, but don't let this fool you; sooner than later you'll be dealing with up to 3 trains, bombs and damsels popping up everywhere, and enough track switches on screen to make your head spin.
Wild Wild Train quickly adds more trains as well as bombs to be disarmed and damsels in distress to be rescued by the special hero train. But don't run over the damsel in distress with any other train 'cause this will take to replay the level.
Beating a level unlocks a cutscene that tells one more part of the story, that will reveal the fate of the damsel in distress.
