After appearing on mobile devices earlier this year, 7LEVELS and Afterburn Studios announced that the rail-train puzzle game Railbound is coming to Switch. December 1, 2022.
As far as comfort level goes, Railbound has it all. It’s a game where you help two dogs embark on a train journey by connecting tracks through various simplistic cartoon landscapes, all accompanied by relaxed tunes from the team behind cozy titles like Golf Peaks and inbento. Dogs. Trains. Cartoons. Puzzles. We can already feel the thick sweater and fluffy slippers on us.
Looking at the trailer above, it’s clear that this title was made for mobile devices. Price £11.49 / €12.99 can be somewhat off-putting in this case, as while the game has been specifically tailored to make the most of the Switch’s features, the 150+ levels can feel like short-stop stations.
That being said, there’s no denying that the game is a pleasure to look at, with puzzles sure to leave us scratching our heads as we go. For more information on the Railbound features, as well as some additional path binding screens in action, check out the following 7LEVELS article:
