About the game..

Loco Mania is a unique, quick thinking logical/strategy game that puts you in charge of managing an entire railway network. Players have to control switches, semaphores and train directions to get the trains through the system as quickly and efficiently as possible. Each level will put players through a multitude of tasks from getting trains to their destination on time to guiding trains with hazard laden cargo safely home. Successfully clearing the trains through the railway system improves the players score and unlocks maps to take the game through progressively challenging levels. Loco Mania will feature 12 maps each inspired by various European landscapes designed to provide a unique gameplay experience. Four gameplay modes include Time Attack, Check Point and Free Run. The faster you complete the challenges the higher you score. So stay on Track! Loco Mania is scheduled for a release in February 2006.
