Mini Metro: the perfect iOS game for nerds and engineers (or nerdy engineers!)

I don’t usually play games on my phone, but when I found Mini Metro, which let me build my own subway system and improve it, I found a treasure.

I just came across a new game for iOS which has me embarrassingly addicted.

Let’s be clear: I don’t play games on my phone. The only exception is Chess. However, as a big old nerd with autistic tendencies, building my own Metro/Subway/Tube system, refining it, expanding it, making it more efficient and watching it run makes me happier than it should. So when I came across Mini Metro, I found a new pastime.

There’s a few different modes to play. For instance, in the Classic mode, you have to build your system and move trains and carriages around so as to not let stations get overloaded. By comparison, the Endless mode doesn’t let stations get overcrowded and you have to keep refining and adjusting your system to make it as efficient as possible and as see how many passengers you can move per day.

If you’re a nerd, or an engineer, OR BOTH (like me), you’ll find this a lot of fun.

Get Mini Metro
