Mini Metro Review
Posted: 18 months ago, last updated 3 months ago.
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.
Players: This is a single player game. Each round can last up to 20 minutes, depending on how well you progress. The better you do the longer it will last, although it's rare to survive over 30 minutes. Daily challenges set targets that are usually a little more difficult but shorter.
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.
