  • Crashes instantly - seems to be a temp issue Nov 4, 2015

    By Jeff near fantasyflightgames
    Game is unplayable. It attempts to download your initial map but gets an http404 error and then quits. Wherever they are storing their map is down. 1 star for crappy delivery and inability to play. It is my hope this is just temporary and will be resolved soon. Update. Next day, map downloaded in 3 seconds. No issues, no crashes. This app just had a very bad first day. Don't let the first day reviews scare you. I changed my rating from 1 star to four. It is now working great.

    good game, but app is weird. track laying very wonky - trying to get the tile to set will often rotate it, or vice versa. if you need to undo that last track you laid - well the undo button undoes all your tracks that turn rather than just the last one. looking up rules is painful. they haven't put rules clarifications on the app where they'd be needed, they've just done the lazy thing of scanning the boardgame manual. except it isn't even in the app - it's a separate download. map charges stingy

    I cannot progress in tutorial. I’ve now restarted it twice, but it requires me to perform an action that I cannot do. I also found a spelling error in the tutorial text. I want to like this game, but I still don’t know how to play because of the broken tutorial.

    Was good. Now buggy. Website no longer exists. A.I. has delivered wrong color freight to city (red box to purple city). 'Track out of bounds' message doesn't go away. Locks up at start of A.I. turn after I go. I don't know if this game is still supported, I have my doubts. Too bad, its a great game, when it works.

    How do I get the app to let me take multiple turns moving goods in the move goods phase? It always ends the phase after I move one good instead of cycling through all the players’ turns repeatedly. Very annoying

    A very good implementation of the board game. The UI is a bit idiosyncratic and rotating track is a bit fiddly but not too bad once you get used to it. The AI responds quickly and plays decently. One of the better board game implementations I have played.

    The game doesn't place a yellow good on Einhoven, then tells you to transport one yellow good to Njinmegen. It won't let me progress past that. I really want to give this game a higher review, but the tutorial is a dumpster fire.

    Was broken, is now fixed – thank you! Steam is an abstract, puzzle-y, strategy game where you move cubes along your tracks to the appropriate city. I really enjoy the puzzle and the AI is actually almost challenging. However it is quite abstract so probably not for everyone.

    A good game, but the mechanics around dragging everything are just wrong. Everyone else let's you get close, it's sad that in a game mainly about dragging its so much work to do this here.

    Great implementation of the board game. Like TTR but with deeper strategy. Everything works perfect and i have a lot of fun playing it. My only suggestion is can you make the undo work per step not all step that the player take so we can just correct the last wrong step.
  • May 16, 2020

    By Jeppe Kirk Bonde
    Not a well made app. You can't undo your last action, only the whole turn. Also for some actions, there is no undo at all (e.g. upgrade locomotive) and it just instantly ends your turn. There is no tips or keywords when clicking things, so you just have to know the rules to play. I think it is a good game, that has not been done justice by the app developer. I suggest the app developers play some other mobile board games, e.g. Through the Ages, to see how it should be done.

    Needs internet/4G on to play, which I hate and is ridiculous. *Awful* tutorial, that shows just a tiny bit and then asks you to download a PDF rulebook (with fuzzy pictures) to learn the game (most digital boardgames include rulebook). No pop-up descriptions either so don't even know what some action cards do without outside research. "Undo" also resets whole turn, not just last action. Otherwise app seems fine.
  • Multiplayer needs improvement Mar 31, 2019

    By Denis_bda
    You cant invite friends so you need to leave a game open for them to join. The turn notifications also dont work. I was very encouraged when the multiplayer was first rolled out but have struggled to complete any games as friends need to be messaged in another medium that it is their turn

    This kind of deep strategy requiring mastery is right up my alley. This game however is rather long form and I strongly suspect it's better on the table. Anyway it has a distinguished pedigree so I'm glad I've tried it.

  • Broken Tutorial Beware Jun 17, 2018

    This may be a decent game if you know how to play the board game. The tutorial however is broken and does not allow you to progress after a couple of turns.

    Not much more to say that that.
  • Looks great so far Nov 5, 2015

    By skipsizemore
    This loaded fine for me, including the map and the rules pdf, so apparently whatever issues they were having at launch have been resolved. The graphics look great and the UI is polished and intuitive. And (hooray!) they included a colorblind-friendly graphics setting, a huge improvement over the original cardboard game. It remains to be seen whether the AI plays well, and there are still a number of features waiting for a future release. But so far this seems to be a worthy addition to the IOS board game genre.

    UPDATE: I have come back to the game after a few years and acknowledge there are indeed seven maps now, well done. Why don't you say in your advertising that you have to buy most of the maps, this would have altered my decision. How do you get a refund on an app ?

    Wonderfully fun tile laying game. The idea is to lay tile rail road tracks in order to transport goods for money/points. The game itself is simple but you need to compete with the AI as well. The AI is fairly challenging and provides a good opponent as you play. They can be a little predictable in what they do sometimes. However, this does not detract from the game. A lot of fun!
  • Love it. More maps please. Aug 31, 2016

    By Theveeg
    As a board game lover and someone who appreciates a good strategy game, this one rocks. If you like Ticket to Ride, Catan, or any of the all time greats, this is for you. Only complaint is a couple of bugs but nothing major and I want more maps as soon as possible. Download this game, take the time to understand the rules, and you will not regret it. Oh, and I never do reviews so that should tell you something.

  • Updated- MUCH better. Nov 6, 2015

    By Jnm858
    Issues corrected. Plays very well now. Highly recommend. *old review* Takes several hours to download resources for the game, and if your device goes to sleep in the process, you're back to square one. Wait for an update before purchasing. Unplayable at the moment.

    The best board game app. Period. Great gameplay, easy to learn and finally a developer gets the AI just right! I dropped my rating by 1 star because after the update, the game is agonizingly slow. What happened?
  • Great, but a little rough around the edges Nov 5, 2015

    By the Spanish Inqusition
    First of all, the core experience is great. Good presentation and artwork, great gameplay with no bugs or glitches. There are a few things that could be improved though... •The initial download takes a while, and you can't exit the app while it takes place. Took an hour or so on LTE in North Atlanta. •The app doesn't even multitask on the iPhone, which is bonkers. But with the game saving your progress after every move it's an annoyance, not a deal breaker. •The game manual is a link to a PDF instead of built into the game. •Tile placement can be a little bit finicky. In summary, if you really want this game, go ahead and buy it. If you're not totally sure, waiting for the first major update is completely reasonable.
  • Love the game, iOS version has flaws Nov 15, 2015

    By amcy60
    Steam is one of my all-time favorite games. But: the iOS version has a couple flaws. The first is that track laying is fiddly. If you don’t drag the track just right, the game complains and doesn’t give you a chance to correct it. Second is that the AI is *very* disappointing.

    If you like looking at "Please wait..." and "Loading..." this game is for you. The developers did an amazing job with the graphics, animation, and loyalty to the real game play, but for some reason really dropped the ball on the biggest draw of the app: the asynchronous multiplayer. Every time you come to the game, you're met with a loading screen. If you back out while it's loading, it can get stuck at a "Please Wait..." and you must for stop and restart the app. The state information in this nearly static board game should be miniscule compared to larger richer games that have no problem playing online in real time. The developers should consider caching the last game state locally and allowing the user to interact with it while server syncing occurs in the background. It even makes me wait when I return to a game where it's my turn! device: Pixel 2 on Android 8.1.0

  • Great game, shoddy implementation Nov 5, 2015

    By SadExplorer
    I love Wallace's games, especially Steam and Age of Steam. This implementation is pretty slipshod, however. The game needs to download additional data after installation, but that only works on a solid Internet connection. If anything goes wrong it just crashes and is unplayable. Once it's working it ... is very slipshod. The UI conventions are inconsistent, inexplicable, and unintuitive. I m familiar with the board game, but get confused constantly by the UI. There's a lot of potential here but the developers need to put some real effort into user experience, especially given the price point ($10 with two maps).
