Playdigious and Dinosaur Polo club have released an update to their highly-acclaimed Mini Metro, adding the long-awaited Endless Mode. Covered in our App Diary and selected as our 2016 Game of the Year, Mini Metro is an addictive puzzle-strategy game with a simple premise: players are tasked with creating an efficient rail system in a growing city, connecting rail stations on a variety of different maps to ensure the smooth flow of passengers within a limited amount of time — the goal being to move the highest number of passengers before one of your stations fills up to capacity, ending the game. With Endless Mode in the latest update, players now have the option of open-ended gameplay where time is no longer a stress factor, allowing for a more zen-like gameplay experience to experiment, design, and operate the subway grid of your dreams.
The latest update also adds new music tracks by Mateo Lugo of Reigns music fame and fixes a handful of bugs; other recent updates have also expanded the number of maps in the game to a total of 15, adding additional cities like Shanghai and Seoul. Mini Metro is normally priced at $5, however it’s currently on sale on the App Store for $3 until Mar. 8.
