Railbound Switch NSP Free Download GAMESPACK.NET Railbound, the latest title from Polish studio Afterburner, makers of Golf Peaks and inbento, is a super-cute puzzler of polished presentation and deceptively monstrous difficulty. It starts ever so innocently, asking for a little railway line to connect a carriage to its engine, and sings with toots and chuffs as a billow of smoke from the locomotive clears to reveal the next stage. By the 100th level, however, it becomes a head-scratcher that’ll wear your nails to nubs. The goal is to couple cars to engines in numbered order. A level starts with one to four cars spaced around a grid and the engine sitting at the edge of the play area. You have a fixed number of track pieces that can go in any direction, turning and branching off each other. You connect the cars to the engine with rails such that car number one will arrive there first, followed by number two and so on. When you press go, the cars rattle along charmingly and you see if your plan worked. It’s so intuitive a concept that we’d played a good 20 levels before we realised that this is absolutely not how trains work. There are eight sets of stages, each set introducing a new mechanic, such as barriers that must be opened by running over buttons, or numbered stations to be stopped at by the appropriate car.TOP/BEST ADULT VIDEO GAMES IN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA)

It’s a bit of a shame that gimmicks from previous sets are sometimes left behind rather than expanded on and combined with new mechanics. However, the later challenges do start to tie everything together in wonderfully complex ways. We won’t pretend that we only used the hint system to test it out for you, dear reader: we’d have been completely stumped without it on the closing levels. It works by revealing the correct placement of a few track sections at a time, requiring a bit of additional trial and error before a further hint is available. It’s a good balance of making you have a proper try but not making you suffer. Controlling all this is entirely pleasurable. The small grids are swiftly navigable with the controller, and good button assignments mean there’s no fiddling through menus. It’s equally delightful to play with the touchscreen and even makes use of some satisfying HD Rumble. Switch seems like the perfect platform for the game. There’s a fair handful of hours to be spent working through over 150 puzzles, although we did have a couple of small gripes. For one, some of the cleverer tests are off the critical path, so their instructive ideas might be missed along the way.

TRAIN-INSPIRED MECHANICS.

The play grid did also feel rather limiting by the end. The small area meant there was probably only one correct answer to most, if not all, puzzles. The train-set appeal of building creatively felt like it was always just over the horizon, but we never got there. However, there’s no resisting the charm of Railbound’s chirpy cel-shaded models and, although they belie some fiendish challenges, the difficulty curve is as smooth as it is steep. Perfect for handheld play, Afterburn has laid down a great addition to Switch’s library of puzzlers. The sight of a two-carriage train is normally something that prompts a deep sigh of despair from me in real life. Nine times out of ten, it’s a sign that something’s gone wrong further up the line – that someone, somewhere, has sent out a train with half its usual number of carriages, and is therefore destined to ruin everyone’s day in the process by cramming us all in like a pack of sardines. In Afterburn’s adorable train puzzler Railbound, however, two carriages are a cause for celebration. In a game that’s about guiding numbered compartments onto the back of an engine (using a limited number of track tiles to get them there in the right order).Deponia Switch NSP

Two-carriage puzzles offer the perfect amount of cerebral head-scratching. They’ve got a bit more bite than simply guiding a single carriage to its destination, but they’re not so complicated that they’ll repeatedly make you reach for the hint button to help you fill in the gaps. Railbound has a tendency to be a bit too abstract in its later stages, but more on that in a sec. All you need to know right now is that there are plenty of smart ideas to wrap your head around here, and that you’ll be grinning from ear to ear by the time you reach the end of the line. Railbound’s handsome presentation goes a long way in creating its cosy, comforting feeling of puzzle-y cleverness. Its warm colour palette and cel-shaded visuals immediately call to mind the same kind of pastoral scenes as Dorfromantik – and heck, if you squint a bit, these jolly little steam trains could almost be the perfect facsimile of the ones that potter about in Toukana’s chill village builder. Even Railbound’s ambient soundtrack has a similarly calming, peaceful vibe, and together with its simple, clear UI and control scheme (which works just as well on a controller as it does with a mouse and keyboard), it all adds up to create an agreeable, friendly atmosphere to noodle away in with your trial-and-error track designs.

150+ PUZZLES TO COMPLETE.

The first world acts as a brisk tutorial, introducing you to simple obstacles, track loops and multiple carriages, but each subsequent world has its own unique hook, ranging from teleporting tunnels, barriers, switches, signals, and eventually actual platforms where you can pick up passengers. Later levels will often combine several of these elements together, but not before Railbound has fully explored each individual idea on its own. It does a great job of making sure you’ve got the tools and necessary know-how to tackle these more complicated combinations, and each world’s core set of levels build and evolve in increasingly pleasing and delightful ways. From the makers of Golf Peaks and Inbento – It’s third time on the track in Afrterburn’s carriage with Railbound. This game reviewed exceptionally well on the Mobile/PC version after the release earlier this year. So, a port to Switch seems like the logical next step as indies seem to thrive on the platform. Afterburn have kept it consistent with Railbound, as it’s another cosy puzzler that can both warm your heart whilst setting a fire in your brain. There is a simple brilliance to Railbound’s puzzle solving that I don’t think my brain will ever figure out.Motorsport Manager

The basics of the game has you placing down pieces of railroad tracks for carriages to make it to the head of the train. The carriages are numbered and the puzzle is solved by arranging the carriages in the correct numerical order. In the placement of tracks you can link them together forming bends for the carriage to turn. If the bend isn’t the right way you can flip it forming an orderly line to the objective. New train inspired mechanics get added as you progress. Tunnels and gates that are opened by the triggering of buttons are amongst other additions that keep you on your toes throughout the game. They’re all meticulously placed leaving no room for a varied solution. There’s always one right path and for that I’m in two minds. In one aspect, as a puzzler there should always be one solution, as is the nature. However, I never found those eureka moments when trying to visualise the answer. Usually the more I play a game the better I can imagine how to beat the stage before actually executing – give or take a few minutes to think. But for Railbound, it never clicked. That’s not to say I didn’t have fun, because I definitely did. But every level was met with frustration and I rarely felt like I was smart when beating the stage.

BEND RAILS TO MAKE THE TRAIN GO ‘CHOO-CHOO’.

Instead it was often the case of exhausting every other variation via trial and error to brute force success. Like I said, I don’t think this is a discredit to the game, rather an issue on me on not getting along with the mechanics of the puzzle. If you like a challenge that’s varied and progressive, Railbound is for you. Railbound’s story is told through postcards you collect as you complete levels. They’re beautifully created in a hand drawn style and they all evoke emotion. They depict every location the dog conductors visit that are connected with the design of the levels. I really looked forward to unlocking a new one every time. However, this is probably the smallest portion of the game and for me, there were not enough dogs! On the basis of the cover art I was expecting more cutesy dog dialogue or customisable features. Of course, pictures, or a postcard tell a thousand words but some additional cut scenes wouldn’t have gone a miss. But it does leave a lot more room for the gameplay to be the focus, and rightfully so. As testament to this straightforward approach to gameplay there isn’t even a main menu screen; as you boot up you’re thrown straight into the first level with subtle signposting that walks you through the basics of the game.

Options to enable the Rumble Feature, Colour Blind Assist, Focus Mode are all great additions. However, the exceptionally helpful options are the ability to enable Hints and even unlock all the levels. Unlocking all the levels for those who are stuck and just want to move on or pick and choose what to play, relieves any pressure and adds to the relaxing nature the game presents. As well as hints being so helpful whilst not holding your hand through the level so you still think it’s you that’s completed it. The hint system shows you one or two pieces of track that should be placed on the map, cutting out a chunk of variations that would be wrong. There are over 150 impressive levels in Railbound. Outside of the tutorial stage the levels ramp up in difficulty quite significantly. Alongside of the mains stages, there are connecting side stages that are on the harder scale compared to the mainline levels. After you’ve beaten the game, the Switch version has a new level with a few more stages that are more of a free form way of completing. You get plenty of track pieces to play around with and it’s a really great way to experiment, it’s a shame you only get it at the end – if you don’t unlock all the levels you miss out on a great way to practice from the get-go.

The levels are simplistically designed with the surrounding areas giving you a sense of where you are without doing too much. Forests, snowy hills or by the seaside; every level has a cosy colour palette whilst never taking any focus off the puzzle at hand. The clicks and delete sounds come off in a very ASMR way. In the right setting if you don’t let the puzzles get the better of you, this is a really peaceful game. The tranquillity is bolstered with a piano lead melody with some light horns that adds depth to the charming presentation it so well executes. That’s mostly because a lot of Railbound’s best puzzles are squirrelled away into separate cul-de-sacs, requiring you to dip back into the main menu screen and peel off down a different track to complete them. These additional puzzles will often riff on the layout of a particular stage, so logically it makes sense to try and complete them at the same time, but the game’s relentless obsession with ploughing on toward the finish line runs counter to this, like its suffering from its own kind of tunnel vision. It’s a shame, as I would have loved the option to linger a little longer in these captivating offshoots, or at least have a couple more of them incorporated into the central route.MXGP 2020 The Official Motocross Videogame
