Light, digestible (indie) game reviews.
I kept getting hooked on trading and forgetting about the other aspects of the game!
*Based on updated Steam total play time.
Bounty Train's strengths lies in its mixed bag of gameplay mechanics: trading goods based on economic needs, transporting passengers, wild west gun fights while defending your train from boarding bandits, RPG character leveling up/skills/loot, and random events occurring along your travels. The mechanics are simplified to make these tasks less daunting. I specifically found the economy-trading mechanics to be addicting and lucrative, which made it easier to purchase new carriages, locomotives, crew, and upgrades.
For those who quickly play through the campaign, you have sandbox mode. This is where you strive for the best Train equipment and crew money can buy, and of course, try your hand at being the best Bounty Train Bandit in all the land, or you know, you can always stick to being a boring, law-abiding citizen.
Bounty Train has a lot to offer with miles of track to cover, and although I particularly didn't like the frequent game-flow-interrupting loading screens and I lost a bit of steam when the game started feeling repetitive, I think Bounty Train is still worthy of a ride.
