Railway Valley places you in the shoes of a railway manager, perhaps the most thankless job in the world. It’s up to you to build train tracks from one location to another, ensuring that all the trains can make in there in one piece. but if there are any obstacles in the way, those have to be cleared out first, and if there are multiple trains coming from multiple locations, you’ll need train tracks to connect everything together, and you’ll need control when the switches will swap between tracks to allow all the trains to run smoothly.
In this strategy game, there’s a lot to manage, but it’s easy enough to get your head around once you get used to it! Trains will spawn from special buildings and go straight toward a destination—as long as there’s a train track connecting them. You have no direct control over the trains themselves, so be sure to keep laying tracks until everything is connected and smooth. Eventually, more trains will enter the mix, and you’ll need to manage switches, and ensure that there are no collisions. Be sure to keep an eye on the tracks you’ve already laid, too. Natural disasters or other hazards may damage them, and you’ll need replace the missing pieces.
