Battle Train Review (Lionel)

Battle Train
What It Is

Lionel, the company that has been creating toy trains for over 100 years, has a mobile game that combines classic Lionel trains with futuristic RoboCars in a story-driven adventure. The game is called Lionel Battle Train, and players begin with a locomotive and boxcar then hit the rails for a series of missions. Successfully completing missions will reward players with coins that can be used to upgrade the trains and add additional boxcars. Those boxcars have room for weapons, which can also be upgraded as the game progresses. All of those upgrades are necessary because while on the tracks, your train is under constant attack from RoboCars that get more difficult to defeat as the missions progress.

Is It Fun?

This is a unique mobile game with great graphics and a fun story that takes you through the missions. It also gives Lionel fans a new way to play with the trains.

Who It’s For

The game is for Lionel and train fans ages 9 and up. But we think kids as young as young as 7 should be able to play the game. We also think this has the potential to appeal to adults and be a game that parents will enjoy as much as their kids.

What To Be Aware Of

The game is available for free. It is currently available for iOS devices.
