If Nimblebit’s Tiny Tower was an addiction for you, it’s probably better if you don’t hand over your ticket for this 8-bit free option on mobile.

If you want your very own version of a toy train set, this beautiful puzzler lets you control signals and sidings, and plan a network across the country in multiple time periods around the world. Watch where you build that track though. Start decimating villages and no one likes it much. HS2 anyone?
