Our good friends over at The Voxel Agents have been hard at work, updating the Train Conductor series to HD. Not only does this now class both the Australian and United States versions of the games as universal for the iOS, it also means you only need to purchase once and the game is available on any of the your iOS devises, ie. iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad.

The Agents have been increasing the games potential for popularity and with some amazing accolades behind it the series is only getting better. The Train Conductor series has previously been awarded Best Game Audio, was a finalist for Best Game Design at Freeplay 2010 and also won the prestigious IGF China ‘Best Mobile Game’ award in 2010. Apple featured Train Conductor in the “Highly Addictive Games” promotion, and it has been selected more than 50 countries for the “What’s Hot”, “Staff Favorites”, and “New and Noteworthy” sections.

Not only is it available across the iOS range of devices Train Conductor: AU has received a facelift with changes to the popular Barrosa Valley stage and an unlock able Easter surprise. Train Conductor 2: USA has also seen a graphic boost update and at on $1.19 is a bargain.

The first time the Agents offered theTrain Conductor as an FreeAppADay.com product over 2 million downloads were seen in the week it was on the site. This time with the updates the game has seen; it should push that figure far beyond.

I am looking forward to the updates on both my iPhone and iPad and I will follow this up with a description of both in next weeks ‘DBG App Dance’.

If you have not played either of these games you are simply must get over to the FAAD site and get this. It’s challenging and a lot of fun that you should not refuse for free. Will be the best free app you get this year.
