This is not the kind of game I usually play. i.e. play ‘til you die. But I love trains, and the game is very well done. However you can’t really train harder; there needs to be a training run that allows you an extended run at a given speed.

I'm very much not a gamer* and one thing that irritates me no end is not knowing HOW the game works. Is it obvious to most of you what controls mean and how to move around games? It's not to me therefore you can't understand how happy I am to see explicit instructions. * I own scores of game apps but can't figure out so many except adorable simple (often Japanese) cat games, geography and vexillology ones.
This is a great game! Question, whats after 999999999?
by Wdgjvcff on 2021/01/21 23:08
This game really unique for its really calming music in the background and the “Find the difference” concept with the lives and the stations you pass to get more lives and speeds up every time. Its very interesting and fun to play. With all the really unique parts of the game makes it really unique and fun. Theres also one thing I’ve been wondering is whats after 999,999,999? Overall, I love this game..
Please update this app
by Mz. Terious on 2019/03/11 20:05
I loved playing on this app. But it doesn’t work anymore with iOS 11. :( Update: the app has been optimized for the latest version of iOS. Very happy to resume playing!
Needs to be fixed
by Great-Phoenix on 2019/02/09 06:08
This app does not support the full height of iPhone XS Max. It needs to be fixed to get my attention. Deleted.
Needs update
by Thomasqk on 2018/04/02 03:56
Can't play your game in the new iOS because it is "too old". will you make any updates?
Update!
by theyungbean on 2018/01/03 04:12
I really loved this game , got a new phone and wanted to install it but it’s not compatible with the new iOS updates really sad that i cannot play hoping it can get updated.
Not compatible with iOS 11
by kaceekae on 2017/11/24 01:03
If you have this app and use it, don’t update your phone to iOS11. App will no longer work 😬
Updates for iOS11!

Relaxing and beautiful graphics. Hoping to see more :)
Well made
by foocastle on 2014/10/20 20:21
Relaxing, yet stimulating. Perfect for train rides. :) The visual style is charming. I especially like the period art posters. Would love to see an update from the developer!
Amazing idea, addictive gameplay!

Such an original idea mixed with great artwork and smooth gameplay all in one. Great game!
Relaxing and fun
by Muhlakai on 2014/07/19 13:35
This really isn't a twitch game in the way most infinite runners are. It's also not a "squint your eyes and click randomly" game like most hidden differences games are. Symmetrain is sedate and simple, challenging you to just stay focused. The music is great for getting you in the right frame of mind, too.
There are better games for hand / eye coordnation

There are better games for hand / eye coordination, this is very boring and makes me wonder how this app is so well praised.
Non-responsive

Non-responsive and sloppy implementation. I keep hitting the right spot. It keeps telling me I'm not. I am. Sorry. Deleted!
Simple, Creative, and Ultimately Fun
by Ken,D on 2014/07/11 09:00
A matching game that is done in a creative and artful way. Fun too! P.S. Please add option to speed up the train in the beginning for advance players in order to save us time. Thanks!
OK For a Short Time
by Mike543210 on 2014/06/25 01:46
This game is useless on the phone. Better on the iPad. Hate that it asks me to log into Game Center each time, which I never use.
New soundtrack maybe?
by MagicBeans101 on 2014/05/24 01:25
My favorite game on my phone but i don't love the soundtrack. Other than that it's perfect. It's simple, not all those dumb boosters and powerups like in some games.
Crashes

A Great 'Eye-Hand-Brain' Coordination App!
by Seattle Portista on 2014/05/10 06:33
This award winning app, apparently created by a pair of German students, is a delight-- it requires a different skill set from most of the 'solitaire' games available for iOS, has marvelous visuals (more on that in a moment), and is simply fun to play. The home screen comes complete with hidden "Easter eggs", so that as you tap on certain of the passengers in the train station you get the design and music credits (among others), and even a comment from the Blue Bird of Happiness, as well as a sound track of a station, with overhead announcements. If I have any complaint at all, it is that the trains run too fast-- it's impossible to take the time to actually admire all that has been included in the (too often!) asymmetrical scenery through which the various trains pass.

I have never played a game so addicting, intense, aggravating, and rewarding as this one. And I've played flappybird.
Charming little game
by Ncw808 on 2014/04/18 14:16
I enjoy this game. I want the soundtrack to be my theme music
Fun, simple game
by NJ from NYC on 2014/04/16 12:24
People who are complaining that the game is boring need to realize that not every game needs to have splashy effects and have you going in a million different directions to be enjoyable. Additionally I think people who are complaining they don't know how to play the game should *look* at the game before they write a review. It clearly states in the info all you need to know to play how to turn off the music, how to pause. Yes, you need to be precise - that's part of the game's challenge. That's what makes it fun. I think it's a fun game great for spending some time when you just want to mindlessly get away.
Peaceful yet difficult
by Abczyc on 2014/04/15 19:12
Such a fun, challenging game. Haven't tested my eye/hand coordination like this in some time. Love it!
Adorable game and soundtrack. Endless Play!
by Chris Fin on 2014/04/13 21:41
I can play this game for ages. It's simply addictive. Good music and design.
Get onboard for a great ride!
by Tonitt on 2014/04/12 18:15
Wow, do I love this game! From its exceptionally beautiful isometric graphics (which I didn't think was possible!) to the funny, relaxing music that breaks apart when you miss enough objects, this is a solid keeper! so easy to lear, yet a continual challenge; I'm thinks of gifting it to several friends. Hope I can get it for my iPad, too.
Love it!
by fur on 2014/04/12 15:41
Super fun and challenging. The music is good, but I wish there was a way to control the music and sound effects independently.

Trains get moving so fast it just becomes guitar hero for your I phone. Very inaccurate tapping zone. You'll lose interest in less than 1 hour.
Lame
by blueskyguy007 on 2014/04/11 20:02
What's not to hate about this game... Music sounds awful Gameplay is boring at best and pointless. Deduction for tapping the wrong area is too strict. Really it should only count off "lives" if you missed it completely. The game is better played just tapping the redundant fingers.
Skip it.
by bhgdkosugf;'n on 2014/04/11 15:04
Dull, tedious, and with really annoying music!
Boring
by Emily Houlis on 2014/04/11 00:28
I also got it as the Starbucks app of the week, and it was described as a game in which you had to safely deliver the train to the station while avoiding obstacles. This is not at all the case. It's very boring and slow-paced, and the music is awful. Glad I didn't pay for this.
I Love It!!!!
by Gtmor523 on 2014/04/10 05:53
Brain training in process while playing a symmetrical game. Tests your observation skills and attention. While testing it helps train you to notice more things with your eyes. And yes this is a real review and an honest opinion.
Where are the instructions on how to use this?
by Edgeplay on 2014/04/10 04:34
I've gotten it through Starbucks app of the week. That's the good part. The bad part is how do use it? At the far lest you can see instructions but you can't seem to open them. So the trains run the game ends and you don't what you did right or wrong. 1/2 star for clarity. 3 stars or of 4 for looks. Bur what good are just looks?
Needs one simple fix
by Shortyann203 on 2014/04/09 21:35
Has the potential to be an awesome game. A lot of that potential is lost trough the fact there's no way to turn the sound off without putting the whole device on silent. I'd give it 5 stars if not for its missing such a basic thing.
Kinda boring
by GaryWang13 on 2014/04/09 07:30
The range of touch point could be larger. Sometimes when you touched a correct place, it shows wrong and deducts one of your lives
Boring
by K R L on 2014/04/08 20:00
I'm glad that this one didn't cost me anything. Boring!
Full steam ahead!

Very fun, yet relaxing. Awesome art style.
Beautiful hand drawn art tests your pairing ability
by Riptide360 on 2014/01/22 14:16
As the train travels the countryside you try to mirror the objects on both sides of the track by clicking on the spot that is missing it's mirrored pair (tree, field, house, etc). Fast speed and touch sensitivity ultimately makes this idyllic game stressful so maybe an option for meandering train would be good for those of us that want a non-competitive game to relax by.
Excellent game

Great Way To Pass The Time
by Jam976 on 2014/01/02 21:54
This game is a great twist on the classic game of spotting the difference. Its really fun, it speeds up to keep you entertained and its a great way to pass time. The music to the game is also very soothing to listen to while playing. I would recommend this game to anyone. I also love the title just because its quite corny haha.
BOOOORING!!!
by Moosennyc on 2014/01/02 13:20
This game is a snooze fest. Don't waste your time.

Such an awesome game with a unique idea!
by Gsquared22 on 2013/12/14 03:45
This is my first review so I hope you all can bear with me. I haven't unlocked all the trains yet, but so far I am having an awesome time with this game. From the peaceful music to the great artwork, Symmetrain keeps me wanting to play more. The game's unique twist in the "Find the Difference" game genre is its vital component and its a hook that captures me every time I open up the app. My body tenses up when I see that my train is catching up to a bundle of trees or buildings, and I have to pull my red emergency brake to slow down and catch the differences. What is also great is that when I don't feel like having my heart race, I can choose the "Extra" train to play a more quiet, serene level and just enjoy. I think people of all ages would love this game. It's something different, something new, something relaxing, but also exciting! (Can't wait to get the "Bullet" train!)
Awesome Game
by alejandroh123 on 2013/12/08 18:12
Pretty cool game. Kinda addictive :-)
Well, it looks fun...
by Waveharp on 2013/11/12 03:47
...but I haven't gotten to play the game at all. The menu loads, I click start and get the 'departing' message, but after that the game crashes every single time.
Slow it down
by The Bieg Deal on 2013/11/11 15:53
Great game beautiful art, I want to play it so much more, but the speed and how fast it ramps up is not fun.
Wonderfully designed casual game
by DannoOno on 2013/11/09 13:35
I've never liked endless runners, until this one. The gameplay mechanics are fun on their own, but the art and music style make this a classic
Thx

Dull, tedious, and with really annoying music!
Wonderfully designed casual game

I've never liked endless runners, until this one. The gameplay mechanics are fun on their own, but the art and music style make this a classic
BOOOORING!!!

Charming

This is not the kind of game I usually play. i.e. play ‘til you die. But I love trains, and the game is very well done. However you can’t really train harder; there needs to be a training run that allows you an extended run at a given speed.

I'm very much not a gamer* and one thing that irritates me no end is not knowing HOW the game works. Is it obvious to most of you what controls mean and how to move around games? It's not to me therefore you can't understand how happy I am to see explicit instructions. * I own scores of game apps but can't figure out so many except adorable simple (often Japanese) cat games, geography and vexillology ones.
This is a great game! Question, whats after 999999999?
by Wdgjvcff on 2021/01/21 23:08
This game really unique for its really calming music in the background and the “Find the difference” concept with the lives and the stations you pass to get more lives and speeds up every time. Its very interesting and fun to play. With all the really unique parts of the game makes it really unique and fun. Theres also one thing I’ve been wondering is whats after 999,999,999? Overall, I love this game..
Please update this app
by Mz. Terious on 2019/03/11 20:05

Can't play your game in the new iOS because it is "too old". will you make any updates?
Update!

I really loved this game , got a new phone and wanted to install it but it’s not compatible with the new iOS updates really sad that i cannot play hoping it can get updated.
Not compatible with iOS 11

If you have this app and use it, don’t update your phone to iOS11. App will no longer work 😬
Updates for iOS11!

Relaxing, yet stimulating. Perfect for train rides. :) The visual style is charming. I especially like the period art posters. Would love to see an update from the developer!

by Muhlakai on 2014/07/19 13:35
This really isn't a twitch game in the way most infinite runners are. It's also not a "squint your eyes and click randomly" game like most hidden differences games are. Symmetrain is sedate and simple, challenging you to just stay focused. The music is great for getting you in the right frame of mind, too.
There are better games for hand / eye coordnation

There are better games for hand / eye coordination, this is very boring and makes me wonder how this app is so well praised.

A matching game that is done in a creative and artful way. Fun too! P.S. Please add option to speed up the train in the beginning for advance players in order to save us time. Thanks!
OK For a Short Time
by Mike543210 on 2014/06/25 01:46
This game is useless on the phone. Better on the iPad. Hate that it asks me to log into Game Center each time, which I never use.
New soundtrack maybe?
by MagicBeans101 on 2014/05/24 01:25
My favorite game on my phone but i don't love the soundtrack. Other than that it's perfect. It's simple, not all those dumb boosters and powerups like in some games.
Crashes
by Giselaliimon on 2014/05/20 19:46
I press on the icon and most of the time it won't even open. When it does open it crashes. I tried deleting the app and then installing it again. It doesn't work.
A Great 'Eye-Hand-Brain' Coordination App!
by Seattle Portista on 2014/05/10 06:33
This award winning app, apparently created by a pair of German students, is a delight-- it requires a different skill set from most of the 'solitaire' games available for iOS, has marvelous visuals (more on that in a moment), and is simply fun to play. The home screen comes complete with hidden "Easter eggs", so that as you tap on certain of the passengers in the train station you get the design and music credits (among others), and even a comment from the Blue Bird of Happiness, as well as a sound track of a station, with overhead announcements. If I have any complaint at all, it is that the trains run too fast-- it's impossible to take the time to actually admire all that has been included in the (too often!) asymmetrical scenery through which the various trains pass.

by Ncw808 on 2014/04/18 14:16
I enjoy this game. I want the soundtrack to be my theme music
Fun, simple game
by NJ from NYC on 2014/04/16 12:24
People who are complaining that the game is boring need to realize that not every game needs to have splashy effects and have you going in a million different directions to be enjoyable. Additionally I think people who are complaining they don't know how to play the game should *look* at the game before they write a review. It clearly states in the info all you need to know to play how to turn off the music, how to pause. Yes, you need to be precise - that's part of the game's challenge. That's what makes it fun. I think it's a fun game great for spending some time when you just want to mindlessly get away.
Peaceful yet difficult
by Abczyc on 2014/04/15 19:12

Adorable game and soundtrack. Endless Play!

I can play this game for ages. It's simply addictive. Good music and design.
Get onboard for a great ride!
by Tonitt on 2014/04/12 18:15
Wow, do I love this game! From its exceptionally beautiful isometric graphics (which I didn't think was possible!) to the funny, relaxing music that breaks apart when you miss enough objects, this is a solid keeper! so easy to lear, yet a continual challenge; I'm thinks of gifting it to several friends. Hope I can get it for my iPad, too.
Love it!
by fur on 2014/04/12 15:41
Super fun and challenging. The music is good, but I wish there was a way to control the music and sound effects independently.

Trains get moving so fast it just becomes guitar hero for your I phone. Very inaccurate tapping zone. You'll lose interest in less than 1 hour.
Lame
by blueskyguy007 on 2014/04/11 20:02
What's not to hate about this game... Music sounds awful Gameplay is boring at best and pointless. Deduction for tapping the wrong area is too strict. Really it should only count off "lives" if you missed it completely. The game is better played just tapping the redundant fingers.
Skip it.

by Emily Houlis on 2014/04/11 00:28
I also got it as the Starbucks app of the week, and it was described as a game in which you had to safely deliver the train to the station while avoiding obstacles. This is not at all the case. It's very boring and slow-paced, and the music is awful. Glad I didn't pay for this.
I Love It!!!!
by Gtmor523 on 2014/04/10 05:53
Brain training in process while playing a symmetrical game. Tests your observation skills and attention. While testing it helps train you to notice more things with your eyes. And yes this is a real review and an honest opinion.
Where are the instructions on how to use this?
by Edgeplay on 2014/04/10 04:34
I've gotten it through Starbucks app of the week. That's the good part. The bad part is how do use it? At the far lest you can see instructions but you can't seem to open them. So the trains run the game ends and you don't what you did right or wrong. 1/2 star for clarity. 3 stars or of 4 for looks. Bur what good are just looks?
Needs one simple fix
by Shortyann203 on 2014/04/09 21:35
Has the potential to be an awesome game. A lot of that potential is lost trough the fact there's no way to turn the sound off without putting the whole device on silent. I'd give it 5 stars if not for its missing such a basic thing.
Kinda boring

The range of touch point could be larger. Sometimes when you touched a correct place, it shows wrong and deducts one of your lives

by Riptide360 on 2014/01/22 14:16
As the train travels the countryside you try to mirror the objects on both sides of the track by clicking on the spot that is missing it's mirrored pair (tree, field, house, etc). Fast speed and touch sensitivity ultimately makes this idyllic game stressful so maybe an option for meandering train would be good for those of us that want a non-competitive game to relax by.
Excellent game

Great Way To Pass The Time

This game is a great twist on the classic game of spotting the difference. Its really fun, it speeds up to keep you entertained and its a great way to pass time. The music to the game is also very soothing to listen to while playing. I would recommend this game to anyone. I also love the title just because its quite corny haha.

Such an awesome game with a unique idea!
by Gsquared22 on 2013/12/14 03:45
This is my first review so I hope you all can bear with me. I haven't unlocked all the trains yet, but so far I am having an awesome time with this game. From the peaceful music to the great artwork, Symmetrain keeps me wanting to play more. The game's unique twist in the "Find the Difference" game genre is its vital component and its a hook that captures me every time I open up the app. My body tenses up when I see that my train is catching up to a bundle of trees or buildings, and I have to pull my red emergency brake to slow down and catch the differences. What is also great is that when I don't feel like having my heart race, I can choose the "Extra" train to play a more quiet, serene level and just enjoy. I think people of all ages would love this game. It's something different, something new, something relaxing, but also exciting! (Can't wait to get the "Bullet" train!)
Awesome Game
by alejandroh123 on 2013/12/08 18:12

by Waveharp on 2013/11/12 03:47

Such a fun, challenging game. Haven't tested my eye/hand coordination like this in some time. Love it!
Adorable game and soundtrack. Endless Play!

I can play this game for ages. It's simply addictive. Good music and design.
Crashes
by Giselaliimon on 2014/05/20 19:46
I press on the icon and most of the time it won't even open. When it does open it crashes. I tried deleting the app and then installing it again. It doesn't work.

Mine just keeps going back to the home screen whenever I am done with the first level but it is fun other than
Charming little game

I enjoy this game. I want the soundtrack to be my theme music

OK For a Short Time

This game is useless on the phone. Better on the iPad. Hate that it asks me to log into Game Center each time, which I never use.
Excellent game

Beautifully rendered and fun game play. Well done!
There are better games for hand / eye coordnation

There are better games for hand / eye coordination, this is very boring and makes me wonder how this app is so well praised.

Trains get moving so fast it just becomes guitar hero for your I phone. Very inaccurate tapping zone. You'll lose interest in less than 1 hour.
Not compatible with iOS 11
by kaceekae on 2017/11/24 01:03
If you have this app and use it, don’t update your phone to iOS11. App will no longer work 😬
Full steam ahead!

Very fun, yet relaxing. Awesome art style.
Needs to be fixed
by Great-Phoenix on 2019/02/09 06:08
This app does not support the full height of iPhone XS Max. It needs to be fixed to get my attention. Deleted.
Non-responsive
by RandomNickname00 on 2014/07/11 13:29
Non-responsive and sloppy implementation. I keep hitting the right spot. It keeps telling me I'm not. I am. Sorry. Deleted!
Boring
by K R L on 2014/04/08 20:00
I'm glad that this one didn't cost me anything. Boring!
Skip it.
by bhgdkosugf;'n on 2014/04/11 15:04
Dull, tedious, and with really annoying music!
Wonderfully designed casual game
by DannoOno on 2013/11/09 13:35
I've never liked endless runners, until this one. The gameplay mechanics are fun on their own, but the art and music style make this a classic
BOOOORING!!!
by Moosennyc on 2014/01/02 13:20
This game is a snooze fest. Don't waste your time.
