Microsoft Train Simulator is a cool train driver simulator released exclusively for the Windows operating system back in the early noughties.
The player adjusts the parameters of the ride:
- Chooses a track
- Selects the train
- Chooses a task
The user finds himself in the cabin of a multi-ton transport. In front of the player's eyes is the train control panel: several levers, several buttons, and various sensors. On the sensors you can see the speed, the distance traveled and the state of the doors (closed / open). The driver must know what each button on the panel is responsible for, otherwise he will make trouble and quickly get out of work.
The player must move from the starting platform on time, to do this, do a few simple operations: start the train, turn off a couple of toggle switches and slowly twist the throttle. During the race you need to stick to the speed designated by the boss, otherwise you can be late or come too fast. This option is not necessary for anyone, because the trains run on a schedule. Safety precautions must be observed on the trip:
- Skip other trains if necessary
- Wait for passengers to get on
- Don't brake too fast - it's better to brake smoothly
- Watch the temperature inside the engine
For people who like extreme and hardcore (or just plain nerdy) there is a steamroller mode. It takes real skill to get the train started. And you have to constantly monitor the amount of pressure and water inside the engine.
To make it harder, the developers have introduced different landscapes, weather conditions and times of day. The luckiest will be lucky to roll at night, under a wild rainstorm or start correctly in the hill that the train did not roll down and did not come off the rails.
The driver will visit different places of the world: America, Russia and Europe. The driver will go to big cities, will drive through mountains and beautiful plains.
The game, released in 2001, evokes a sense of nostalgia in thousands of men who spent thousands of hours on it as children. We recommend it to fans of Microsoft Train Simulator 2 and Railworks.
