Storm the Train is an action platformer available for free from Chillingo. If you like running, killing, shooting, and trains...this is your game.
In storm the train you choose from three different agent characters, each with their own style, weapons, and upgrades. As you progress you can unlock new weapons, gear, and achievements for each.
Gameplay consists of platforming and shooting. You begin each game at the end of a moving train, and your goal is to progress as far as you can without dying. You'll face all sorts of hordes of enemies, including some heavy duty bosses, as you jump from train to train. All the trains are themed, such as zombie trains, sci fi trains, etc., and the enemies and bosses also change accordingly. Along the way you collect powerups, coins, and fill up your meter to use special weapons, like the drone in the video. In between missions you select characters, spend coins, and upgrade your characters and weapons.
This game looks gorgeous. Awesome backgrounds, great 2D environments, good animation, and an excellent cartoon style art style make this a joy to watch. Plenty of explosions, splatters, gunfire, and a nicely paced atmospheric soundtrack will fill your ears from start to finish. Controls are tight and responsive, no mushiness or delay. They've done a good job of making it a very competent and playable game, even if you suck at it like me.
Storm the Train is a fairly new release, and it's quite a bit of fun to play. Whether it stands the test of time with updates and new content remains to be seen, but it's a pretty unique and fun experience, and the price of entry is just right.
