東京都 地下鉄

by Levi D. Smith - MiniLD 70 Entry

東京都 地下鉄 is a simple simulator ( シミュレータ ) of the Tokyo Yamanote Line (山手線). I really just wanted an excuse to use the eki (駅) jingles in a game. There are options to toggle the map and toggle displaying the eki (駅) names. This was my first time using multiple viewports in a game. There is an overhead view showing the entire line, and a smaller window showing a closeup of the densha (電車).

Well done, except that Yamanote Line isn't really a subway. :P I think an English title could be added, so that people can understand what the game is about.

@euske - Thanks for checking out my game! Yes, I had originally planned to have multiple lines (including the underground ones) with multiple trains running at the same time. I still want to add those, as well as adding a train track path, instead of having the train going from one station to the next in a straight line.

Hey, that's pretty good. It isn't like any other game I have played before :p

Very interesting game! I included it in my compilation video series of all of the MiniLD #70 games, if you’d like to take a look :)
