Ebscer first caught my attention with his game Pixelated Plus for BlackBerry PlayBook & Smartphones. I would later graduate to his Xploding Boxes game (personal favorite), and now his Runaway Trains game for BlackBerry PlayBook. Another absolute must-have.
V1.1 of Runaway Trains for BlackBerry PlayBook brings some additional levels [101 - 120] & Spanish language support. Compatibility still covers BlackBerry tablet 1.0.6 as well as NOOK tablet & color devices here.
Like Ebscer’s previous titles Runaway Trains brings with it: simple game mechanics, extremely addictive gameplay & simple graphics. All of these elements combine to make another sure fire hit.
I’ve not gotten real familiar with Ebscer yet, but I have noticed some of the cool blog posts he writes at his site like this one here. A developer with a knack for words and analytics is a welcome treat in the world of BlackBerry. He’s also featured in our next post from RIM Media thanks to his awesome developer & application successes.
Now to bring the focus back to Runaway.. I can’t stress enough that you’re going to want to check this game out. You don’t even have to fork over any cash right away because the first 25 levels are automatically free! The game plays like this – you’ve got 3, 4, 5 or more trains (each has it’s own color) and laid out in front of you are station colors that correspond to each of the trains presented at any given level. Your goal is obvious. Send the correct color train to the same color station. Things get a tad tricky in the train tracks where you’ll have to touch the screen to give the train the proper route. As you progress the game gets more difficult. At the start you’ll only see one color for each train (one red train, one green etc). Later on you’ll be surprised by more trains to route. It’s really a lot of fun.
BlackBerry PlayBook users can download Runaway Trains for FREE from your BlackBerry PlayBook at the link below. After the first 25 levels, if you like you can purchase the next 95 levels for $2.99. Pretty decent for all this gameplay.
