Mini Metro Review

OverviewOverview

Create an ordered, efficient underground train system. It sounds like hard work, but the simple Tube-map visuals, calm music, and streamlined interactions make this relaxing, like sudoku. Dip your toe in this strategy challenge and keep the system running smoothly as the numbers of passengers increase.

The simple premise and uncluttered interface is a strategy game perfectly laid bare for beginners. Daily challenges and different cities gently increase the challenge. It's a zen strategy game that's relaxing and frustrating in equal measure.

One difficulty setting lets you play without penalties for overcrowded stations and reduces the perceived pressure. You can select Endless if you fail a level to continue playing.

When you Pause, there is an implicitly assistance mode where you can stop the game and replan routes. You can also adjust the game speed.

You can skip transitions between levels to ease motion sickness.

There's no controller support on PC. The controls are a little hard to find on PC, as the focus is on mouse. The following keys also work:
  • Space Bar: Pause
  • Left/Right Arrow key: Controls game speed settings.
  • Up/Down Arrow key: Shows/hides tool bar.
  • Left/Right control: Highlights position of mouse cursor on screen.
