Lucky Luke: Transcontinental Railroad

In the sprawling plains of the Great Basin in the American West, construction of the Transcontinental Railroad has been forging ahead after overcoming the challenge of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The railroad has been plagued by attacks from the infamous Dalton brothers, workers are terrified and construction is in danger of slipping behind schedule.

I like a bit of challenge in a game as it goes along, but I mainly play for relaxation and fun, and when The Trials of Olympus game becomes unwinnable at a certain point, I just get frustrated and mad. Date published: Lucky Luke: Transcontinental Railroad 3 out of 5 by zownder from A cute game, but didn't make me want to play the whole demo I love time management games, especially those that have a strategy aspect too. Here is what I didn't like: I'm getting really tired of hearing the same voiceovers in these games. It's challenging, but not impossible, and very fun. There didn't seem to be an option. It makes you waste some precious seconds. This game SHOULD have been fun, but the continual pop-up instructions with no way to opt out really got on my nerves AND made me lose a star a few times on the first few levels. There are a few cons, though. Workers can be hired at the local saloon how funny is that Banks are built to receive gold, grocery stores provide food and the Undertakers provide wood that's funny too and the good ole Post Office is where you order supplies by clicking on the desired materials of Stone, Iron, RR ties etc, and you will need to click on the supply horse when the load is ready to deliver to the Post Office. This is such a fun game. As in MB, you must collect resources, construct production buildings, produce and buy goods and tools, and knock down bandits. This one looked good, but didn't quite live up to my expectations. The Railroad Tracks need constant Lucky Luke: Transcontinental Railroad, and Bandits are constantly trying to derail the train with dynamite that Detective Solitaire: Inspector Magic And The Forbidden Magic diffusing before Mystery P.I.: The Vegas Heist explodes! I have found the later iterations of the Monument Builders games too difficult to achieve three stars on higher levels.

This one looked good, but didn't quite live up to my expectations. I didn't even play the whole time on the demo. Can't the developers come up with some new ones? The tutorial pops up and obscures your screen and I couldn't work out how to get rid of it. This game is educational as well, as Lucky Luke and Jolly Jumper explain some pretty interesting factoids about the Transcontinental Railway. As in MB, you must collect resources, construct production buildings, produce and buy goods and tools, and knock down bandits. I do have just one teensy complaint however. A good thing as half the time you CAN'T because LL's tutorial head is in the way , and you don't have to click on them, just mouseover. However, I have gotten stuck on one level or another when trying for 3 stars. This is such a fun game. The pictures are so very teensy. I like a bit of challenge in a game as it goes along, but I mainly play for relaxation and fun, and when a game becomes unwinnable at a certain point, I just get frustrated and mad.

I think this would be a fun game for Western enthusiasts who don't mind the non-PC of the game. What I liked about it: The resources accumulate even if you don't collect them straight away. The usual tasks are given, clear the roadway, fill in the holes, 5 Star Rio Resort down wood, and gather food by clicking on the available unblocked item. Otherwise, I like the game and find some levels quite The Enchanted Kingdom: Elisas Adventure. The Dalton Transconttinental are troublemakers and you'll have to have a wild wild west fistfight with them and the bandits from time to time. And when Luke finally says he's going to leave us alone to play the levels - big sigh of relief - his horse, Jolly Jumper, jumps right in with more instructions.


Now you just need to wave your mouse at it. It is a great little game just to pass the time, but not something that you would want to sit and play until you beat it. It's challenging, but not impossible, and very fun. This is from the makers of the Monument Builders series which I love, I feel like those are very educational and fun. He's a cardboard figure and certainly non representative of any true Native culture. It makes you waste some precious seconds. Right, that's it.

I am an experienced TM player and have played hundreds of TM games and this one I just found lacking both in directions, helpful hints and even the graphics were lame. This is one of those games that I will play repeatedly when I just need to relax after a hard day of fulfilling my crafts orders. The screen is just annoyingly messy and confusing, with or without the stupidly enormous pop-up tutorial. The usual tasks are given, clear the roadway, fill in the holes, chop down wood, and gather food by clicking on the available unblocked item. Also I got stuck in level 2 and didn't know what I had to do to get the resources I needed.

If you don't have enough resources for example to build a grocery store, it's extremely difficult to figure out what resources you lack because when you hover over the icon the resources you lack are shown in red, BUT the pictures are so teeny tiny and I have a 27' screen I ended up guessing at what the resources were. This game SHOULD have been fun, but the continual pop-up instructions with no way to opt out really got on my nerves AND made me lose a star a few times on the first few levels.

I have found the later iterations of the Monument Builders games too difficult to achieve three stars on higher levels. I'm not familiar with Lucky Luke or the infamous Dalton brothers, are they some sort of historical figures? In the end I had to destroy the bank to get the stone and then I was able to order more.

I've just played the 1-hour trial, but I intend to buy it. The dynamite blows and you cannot repair the hole for the same reason.

If you enjoy the MB games, then you'll enjoy this one. A good thing as half the time you CAN'T because LL's tutorial head is in the way , and you don't have to click on them, just mouseover. Doesn't make sense. Luckily you don't need to fill the hole to complete the level, but the workers trip on it every time which slows them down.

  1. No big deal, except I can't find my usual help from the game forums or walkthroughs. Literary figure? Because of all the interesting facts Lucky Luke tells us, this game is perfect for Railroad and Train lovers, and Wild West buffs as well, enjoy!

  2. In fact, I'm already bored and I'm only half way through. However, there are two major improvements that really made the gameplay run more smoothly: 1 - You don't have to click on a building when the resource is ready and then wait until the cart reaches your main office. This game is educational as well, as Lucky Luke and Jolly Jumper explain some pretty interesting factoids about the Transcontinental Railway.

  3. You buy the resources from the post office so you don't want to purchase a bunch of stone when you need iron. Granted I'm over the hill, but I could not tell the difference between iron and rock a few times. Right, that's it.

  4. The tutorial pops up and obscures your screen and I couldn't work out how to get rid of it. I now have the game and started over from the beginning. There is also a glitch on Level 14 West. All in all, for me, Lucky Luke is Monument Builders like it used to be - fun, relaxing, immersive, and not so challenging that you want to throw a rock at it. For example, Level 15 East: The last set of bandits don't show up until you are already past time to receive 3 stars and even if the rest of the goals are met, 2 stars is the best you can do.

  6. The Railroad Tracks need constant repair, and Bandits are constantly trying to derail the train with dynamite that needs diffusing before it explodes! And, just as I ordered the right one, clicked on my stagecoach to have it delivered, and got all set to build, up popped Luke again with another message!
