Is It Any Good?

The unique pen-and-ink graphics of PAPER TRAIN are an immediate draw -- these are fabulously different visuals that, all on their own, feel almost worth the price of admission. But this is a solid traffic control game as well, with a pretty high (but not frustratingly unbeatable) challenge level. The cows, which wander randomly, make the game a whole lot tougher, but in a good way. If one strolls too close to a track, you need to quickly tap it to turn it around. It's an extra task that can steal your attention away from conducting the trains. Being able to keep both trains and cows safe can take a lot of trial and error, but if you've got the patience to work through it, you should really enjoy the ride.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
