Loco Mogul - Railway Business
Loco Mogul is one of those games that you don't see all around in different forma and shapes. This game from ApeZone Inc may not be the best game you ever played but it does have something to entertain you for a couple of hours.
You are to play as an enterpreneur who is doing his best to grow his own business ubilding new stations and supplying the customers with what they need.
Those who are familiar with every new and old release in the world of casual games may take a look at the game and think that there isn't much to look for. For example, just because the graphics are so very simple.
The story of the game isn't a blast too. But when you get into it you can actually find it quite challenging with it's own techniques and skills required.
So you start as an apprentice and then keep going as a businessman. What you do is you investigate the area, trying to find the best way of building the railroad. Your biggest priority at this stage is to make sure your customers will get your service.
You get a square board devided into a number of squares. You are to explore every small square whether there is a tree or river or plain grass. You also come across the customers that should get a railway station near them.
When the road is built, you can set the stations on it. The main principle here is the more the better. The trick here is that sometimes it takes a thought to place them where you need them.
The railway stations take up a few squares around them (they get highlited) and you can not place two stations too close because the highlited squares should not cover each other.
Once you are done with that, you run the train. You are shown the number of miles that your train can go. Then you all of the stations are given a letter index and some of them have either some materials or carriages to be taken to another station. These is also marked with letters.
So what you need to decide is what carriage you want to take, taking into consideration the distance and the cost of the cargo, and which is the best way of delivering it. That's what you do till you run out of the miles.
That is the way Loco Mogul goes encreasing the challenge level as you proceed and providing you with more upgrading opportunities.
