 - Train Yard, Matt Rix, iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch

Angry Birds is so yesterday, and even Cut the Rope is falling out with the cooler kids. Nope, these days it's all about Train Yard, a simple train management puzzler on the iPhone / iPod Touch / iPad.

Along with its little (lite) brother, Train Yard Express, Train Yard is selling like hot cakes and the author, Matt Rix, has been sharing some insights into his own brand of peculiar genius when it comes to game design.

Here then is a picture of Rix's original notebook scribblings for Train Yard. From such small acorns did a mighty oak of a game spring. Train Yard is both addictive and absolutely polished to perfection, gameplay wise, and perfect for the platform (oh I'm so sorry) it's running on.
