We were a bit conservative in our November review of Storm The Train, as it's the one Chillingo title that still has us by its hooks. Now with its latest update (version 1.2), Storm The Train has given gamers a really enticing new feature.
The biggest update lies in the survival challenge, which is now integrated into the main game. You can still play under survival mode as a completely separate experience, but getting the chance to seamlessly merge it into the adventure was a much needed update. Other updates include the chance to fight multiple bosses on a given event, new weapon upgrades, improved weapon death effects and an improved spawning ramp, and an improved tutorial for players.
Storm The Train's continued appeal is the wide variety of missions, upgrades, and challenges that seem to appear out of nowhere hours into game play. We still haven't died on the Orient Express, but if a blue star is our reward, then maybe we'll let this train roll us over.
