Train Conductor World: European Railway is a friendly and welcoming puzzle game that’s a lot more difficult than it initially lets on. It’s a satisfying mixture of path-switching and trainwreck prevention with some puzzle action for players of all skill levels. But you may find that you end up needing some help when playing as it can ramp up the difficulty pretty quickly. Our Train Conductor World tips, cheats and strategies should help keep your trains on the straight and narrow… and getting to their destinations in one piece.

Stop those trains!

The trains can often come hurtling toward you pretty quickly, and it can be hard to figure out what to do next in the heat of the moment. That’s why you shouldn’t hesitate to use the “stop” ability if you need to so you can catch your breath. This will help you take some time to plan your next move. Remember, if you crash, it’s level over, and you’ll be stuck watching another video ad if you want to continue. And stopping a train is easy. All you have to do is tap on it with your finger to get it to stop and tap it once more to get things moving again. You won’t get the highest score possible if you do this, but at least you’ll be making progress.

Don’t start moving trains around all willy-nilly

You might see all the trains coming from every which way and be tempted to start handing out redirects and paths for every set of cars as soon as you see them. Don’t. And don’t automatically assume every car needs to be sent down another path. Sometimes this isn’t the case. And sometimes you can’t assume that the easiest path is going to solve all of your problems. It’s a lot like life that way. Instead, be patient. If you have to fail to succeed then sit back, stop the trains, and study the situation. You can swap the trains back and forth as much as you need to and it won’t harm your score or your game, as long as you get them to where they need to go. Then you’ve cleared your objective, you’ve played strategically, and you’re good to go.

Bend the rules

If you’re not really concerned about “fair” play and just want to keep as many stars as possible, you can keep your finger held on a train as long as you want in order to avoid a crash. It may seem like cheating, but it’s not really. It’s more of you using all of the resources at your disposal. And no one would ever fault you for that, especially no one at Gamezebo!

Ignore the numbers

The numbered trains on the sides of the tracks may seem beneficial to your cause, but they’re not really worth worrying about. They are meant as a guide to help keep you on track, so to speak, but don’t get appalled if you have to end up pulling track 1 to track 2 or something to that effect. It’ll only trip you up the longer you play, so just get in the habit of continuing along as if they weren’t even there.
