Ultra-fast traffic control, but not nearly enough variety.

RAILROAD MADNESS - iPAD EDITION certainly forces you to stay on your toes with its rapid pace and insane crisscrossing of tracks. Directing trains through these maze-like boards is not easy, and fans of the "traffic control" genre looking for a challenge will find one here. There are only four different maps, though, and the lack of variety makes the app feel very slight. After playing each level a few times, you may be wondering where the rest of the game is. And the only differences between the levels are in the track layout and the background. Some sort of varying train types or different obstacles for each track would have gone a long way toward keeping the game interesting. Perhaps a future update will add more levels? We'll need to wait and see.

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.
