Game

Locomotion

An early time-management, puzzle game. Originally a 1982 Konami arcade game, it was ported to the Intellivision console that same year, and then received a 1992 enhanced remake for the Amiga, PC, Atari ST and C64 computers.

Overview

Locomotion is played from a top-down perspective. The many levels in the game consist of various set-ups of railways and stations and the player has to make sure they all arrive at their destination unharmed (i.e. without crashing). At random intervals, stations will start flashing and a train will emerge with a letter on it, indicating what the train's destination is. The player can influence the path of the train(s) by switching around the railways, avoiding crashes and sending the trains to the correct stations.
