Train Sim is a free simulation game developed by 3583 Bytes. In this game, you’ll be commanding trains across different tracks in a similar vein to Indian Train Simulator and Mountain Train Simulator 2016. Because it’s a simulation game, you’ll also be able to perform other tasks, such as picking up passengers and carrying freight.
Even if it sounds complex, it isn’t. This app provides a lot of hassle-free entertainment thanks to its regular updates. It also boasts simple but effective controls, making it suitable for children. However, both children and adults can enjoy its many features, including building your own 3D terrain.
Lots of content
One of the highlights of Train Sim is the incredible amount of content it has for an Android game. It offers over 50 trains to choose from, from various eras. You can find steam locomotives and modern, ultra-fast trains. There are also over 40 train car types.
It has no shortage of tracks, either. You can travel through Southern England, India, and California, and there are mountains, deserts and various scenarios to pick. You have the ability to control the weather to create different situations so tracks never feel the same.
Tiny details make a difference
Even though it’s easy to understand that a train game would have many trains and tracks, that doesn’t mean it will be a “true” simulator. Train Sim understands this, and that’s why it’s filled with tiny details that enhance the sense of immersion.
For example, there are realistic train sounds that make you feel you’re really inside such vehicles. There are train derailments you’ve got to be wary of. You can also sit in passenger cars and observe the 3D interiors of all trains and much more.
A nice way to spend your time
Train Sim is a perfect game to sink some time into, especially in long commutes where you can simply sit and relax watching your train move along the tracks. However, it’s not simply a zen-like experience. There are lots of things to do which are well-implemented and fun.
It has enough content so it never gets old, and even if it does, you can create a 3D terrain to your liking or get achievements that allow you to unlock more features. It’s an interesting game overall that can be as realistic or simple as you like.
