What it is and what you do with it: a virtual construction toy / train set featuring characters from the popular TV Series Thomas and Friends.

Choose one of the pre-made sets or create your own from scratch. Run an engine (or multiple engines at the same time) and watch them race, jump, slide (or just bump into each other).

Earn golden gears to unlock more engines and accessories for your set.

What we liked: the concept. Excellent set of features, including the Augmented Reality play mode and the 'blueprint' construction mode (where you just follow instructions to complete a pre-made track). Huge amount of components to use in your set: track pieces, jumps, ramps, bridges, buildings, terrain/water pieces, fixtures and accessories. Great variety of engines (lots of fun for Thomas and Friends fans!). Fun play mode with 2 view modes: 'bird's eye' and 'first person'. Detailed illustrations/3D models based on the original characters from TV series. Intuitive controls. Overall quality of the app.

What we didn't like: it takes time to unlock all extras :)
