Play OverviewPlay Overview

Tren (2023) is a traversal-puzzle game set in a hand-crafted world as a wooden train, sailing boats and helicopters. You control points, shunt trucks around, operate cranes and generally move cargo from one location to the next. Like an escape room with toy trains, once you have solved all the puzzles you can move onto the next room. Also like those challenges, you experience a story along the way.

It's a high-score chasing, track-building adventure about a wooden toy train set. Various modes shown off offered a range of gameplay, some open-world train tinkering and timed challenges. The world in which you play also tells a story through the nostalgic toys and products you find. In this way, along with the fun and puzzles, the game tells a story about a father-son relationship and the upheaval of family separation and upheaval.

It includes a track-building kit featuring over 550 elements, which you can play around with to make your own tracks. And, as part of the Play & Edit feature in the template, you can alter the provided tracks and create your own challenges for other players to sweat through.

The game offers real physics so you have to go the right speed not to lose cargo from the trucks and not to lose trucks from the track. To this end you can upgrade the power, handling and speed of your vehicles. You have to use these abilities to deal with the different track scenarios, lifts, see-saws, turntables and the like.

Age RatingsAge Ratings

Content Rating

This game has not yet been rated, but we anticipate it is likely to be rated PEGI 3.

The rating for Tren is a little strange. You will need to purchase Dreams to access the game, which is rated PEGI 12 and EVERYONE 10+. However, the content in Tren itself is likely to be at a PEGI 3 and ESRB EVERYONE level.

Skill Level

6+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Very young players may need help with the physics aspects of the play. Forward thinking is needed for the puzzles as well as dealing with multiple systems at the same time. To create your own tracks needs planning and cunning.
