About

The year is 1885, the height of the Age of Steam in the United States of America. But something is not quite right in the land of destiny and the free market: Dirigibaus, a ruthless entrepreneur, has monopolized trade in the West with a fleet of airships! Dirigibles and zeppelins dot the skies as agents of an oppressive business regime.

Someone still fights for the little people, though. The venerable Tumbleweed Express Steam Engine, long-thought to be obsolete and scrapped, is set to saddle up and ride again. The Tumbleweed is about to spearhead a logistics campaign meant to compete with the Dirigibaus, bringing support to those who have been downtrodden and forgotten. Dirigibaus doesn't take kindly to competition, however, so the Tumbleweed has armed herself for war...

-Story is awesome -Beutiful sourounding and music -Awesome combinations of guns and weaponry -Awesome Train combat systhem I enjoyed this game, at first I was skeptic even more by the look of the low price, but when I played it all of it was gone you have a beutiful setting on tracks wile defending from evil bandits in western times, totaly awesome I would have atleast payed 5 or 7 Bucks for this came hope they put out some extra Storys and maybe bring out a 2nd and 3rd part of this game or even a mutiplayer game were 2 trains drive next to e ach other(players can controll the train speed and the train guns) and then you can fight as Driver, Marshall or Gunner the other Train and there Members, upgrade it and do awesome gun upgrades and fight of other trains and Players. Buy this game for sure and support these intellegent creators!!!

Gameplay Tumbleweed Express is a Mix of Railshooter and Tower Defense. You have a Train that you can expand with time, with which you move automatically via a Rail System and you have to defend it. At the End of each completed Level, you get updates unlocked depending on your Performance and a handful of Money to incorporate them. To upgrade the Train you have many Things like reperateurs, Automatic Cannons, damage Amplifiers, shields, marshalls, boosts, manual Weapons etc and most of them you can either raise the Level to 3 or you can, as with the Reperateurs and Place marshalls up to 5 Pieces in a Wagon. The Number of Wagons can also be increased to up to 4 Cargo Caragons. Over Time, the train gets stronger and more robust and you can master the higher Levels or additional Challenges. Positive-Matching Graphics-Funny game principle-Simple control-boss Battles-Difficulty increase without mass Grinding to cope with Neutral Achievements-Cloud Storage-Collectible Cards Negatives-A few rare Gamebreaker Bugs like that of the Train Easily from the Splint and thus stuck (happened 2 x during the play)-Game was played out after just under 3.7h with all Levels on 3 Holes, all Collectible objects and all Achievements. -Difficulty level a LITTLE too low, I hope there comes a DLC with more levels and higher Difficulty level, because creating everything to 3 Stars was already relatively easy with only about 50% of the Upgrade options. Verdict A beautiful little Railshooter With Tower Defense shares. However, because of the short Playing Time and the relatively low Level Of difficulty, I would wait for a Sale with 25 or more%.
