Alpine Train 3D: Now Enjoy the Fun on Android!
[MobilePRwire] – From the studio of BAFTA nominated 3D artist Jeremy Horton, Alpine Train 3D v1.5 is now available for download on Android devices. This fantastically fun game app was well received on the premium iOS devices for which it was originally designed: the time has come to spread the joy to the Android community.
The original iOS train simulator app for all ages originally featured an alpine landscape around which you could drive your steam engine. You could take in the views of nature, the soundscape and some pretty awesome artistic graphics that many other games in the genre could only aspire to. Over time, the fun has been added to with a system of caves which are, in effect, other worlds into which you can drive the train.
The developer has been impressed by the capabilities of the newer Android devices as a platform for the game. “When we envisaged the game a year or so ago, we thought that for the relatively high-end graphics, Apple devices would be the natural choice, offering us premium hardware to get the best of the game, whilst we accepted the limiting effect of an exclusive platform on sales.”
Recent developments have forced a re-think: “the tablet and smartphone offerings of recent months have blown our mind: graphical performance and ease of programming that means that the market in true 3D apps on iOS and Android, like Alpine Train 3D, will surely rapidly increase in the near future.”
Alpine Train 3D on Android is based on the freemium model: in return for a user download, a substantial amount of playability is available for free, whilst the user gets comfortable with the game and performance on his/her device. When the time is right, the user can unlock the Orca Cave, Yeti Cave and Aqua Park as in-app purchases to extend the fun for many hours to come.
Alpine Train 3D on iOS or Android is a must for lovers of railroads, simulation games, 3D games or family fun. Available on the App Store for iPad mini, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPhone 4, iPhone 4s, iPhone 5 and iPod Touch 4th and 5th generations, and on Google Play for Android smartphone and tablet devices.
