Symmetrain is a puzzle videogame developed by Black Pants Studio exclusively for iOS devices. This app offers an entertaining puzzle about symmetry for the whole family, with different difficulty levels. Players have to choose a train and then spot differences in the scenario to earn points as the train gets to the next station, then you can unlock new trains and routes to play on.
The gameplay is simple: you have to tap on the screen to identify the difference in the scenario, which is divided equally by the railroad. This mechanics may seem easy at first, but the train will gradually increase its speed, so the trip becomes harder as you move forward.
How to Play
Symmetrain brings an ingenious concept with simple and responsive controls. You have to spot as many differences as you can to restore symmetry in the passing landscape. You start the game with one train available, but you are free to unlock additional trains by completing objectives such as achieving a certain score with a specific train model.
You have to spot as many differences as possible to restore symmetry in the passing landscape
When you choose your train and the trip starts, you have to find hidden differences by tapping the correct object to reveal its counterpart. Note that you have to tap exactly where the missing object should be, which can be tricky when the train starts speeding up, however there is an Emergency Brake to help you if things start going too fast. If you tap the wrong place, or miss a difference, you will lose a life. The game ends when you lose all your lives. You will find train stations from time to time which serve as checkpoints, giving you an extra life for that turn. However, you will don't restart from last checkpoint if you lose.
Each train has its own route and increasing levels of difficulty. There are easy trains such as The Rocket or The American for beginners, and faster ones such as The Pennsylvanian or The Zeppelin for advanced players. Routes are varied and hand-drawn, driving railroads through grasslands, over the sea, or deserts among many other scenarios, each one with different objects to spot such as houses, boats, rocks or trees.
