Editors' review

Designed to help kids develop logic and puzzle-solving skills, 3D Ultra TrainTown Deluxe may frustrate as much as it teaches. The program offers three basic train-based games. One lets kids lay their own track, another provides a spelling quiz, and the last tasks tykes with moving all their toys back to the box by moving them with a train. However, how you control the game isn't immediately apparent, and the help files are anemic at best. Therefore, we can see how some parents might give up in frustration before learning how to play and teaching their kids. The graphics aren't sophisticated compared to most games, but they're appropriate for younger users. The sound effects are simple and the accompanying music is jaunty, but you will find options for disabling them, as well as those for selecting difficulty level and playing in full-screen mode. Since 3D Ultra TrainTown Deluxe may be too elementary for older children yet too unintuitive for younger kids, it only seems appropriate for those who really like trains.

    "I like it, but some things could have been done better"

    May 01, 2010   |   By rickm70

    Version: 3D Ultra TrainTown Deluxe demo

    Pros

    The controls are simple once you get to know them.
    The game is fun and kind of addicting, you don't want to stop.

    Cons

    The tutorial job bin is missing, they should have made those the demo jobs.
    The graphics aren't the best.
    The train cars have impossible turning radii.
    Loading and unloading cars is often confused with selecting or decoupling the cars.

    Summary

    I liked this game as a kid, and I now I like it even more. If you get the full version, the controls are explained in a series of tutorial jobs. The throttle control depends on which way the train is facing, which seems to confuse a lot of players.
