Railbound is a track-bending puzzle game where you lay track, switch points, and use tunnels to get the carriages to the engine in the right order. Although it's the puzzles that keep you playing, there's also a real joy in connecting tracks and seeing the hand-drawn world respond visually and audibly (a little like Townscaper).

Our accessibility examiner, Andy Robertson, first checked Railbound accessibility 18 months ago.
