A downloadable game for Windows and Linux


SplitTrain is a challenging reaction mini-game inspired by "Densha de Go!".

Drive a train, try to be on time and simultaneously remove obstacles from the track.

Current state:

SplitTrain is a spare time project. 

Currently it is in beta and I am adding features from time to time. 

There are are very few levels, however I added an in-game level editor, so everybody can edit and create levels.

Also, the content is not complete yet. I will add more assets to the obstacles and decoration in future updates.

You can find the changelog here: https://tom.io/splittrain/ 


I am happy to receive any feedback. If you design a new level (see "Edit levels" below) and find that it could be included in the game, make sure to send it to me! :)

How to play:

A basic tutorial is included, but reading this section  is advised.

Score points:

  • Drive the train within the speed limit
  • To increase the score multiplier
    • Pass checkpoints at the correct time
    • Complete track events before the train passes them
  • Stop the train at the terminal station (EOL) to avoid a penalty


Press Tabulator to switch between top camera (train) and bottom camera (action)

When the train camera is active:

  • Use left and right arrow key to increase / decrease power and breaking
  • Use up and down arrow key for neutral, full power or full breaks

When the action camera is active:

  • Use left and right arrow key to move the camera
  • Hold up or down arrow key to complete the track events

Press ESC to open the menu


  • The tutorial messages can be toggled in the options menu

Edit levels:

Levels can be edited with the integrated level editor. Click on a level in the main menu while holding left shift to open the level edtior. 

You can change existing levels or add your own! 

If you made a level you think is fun, let me kown! I will consider adding it to the game. :)

The levels are stored as json text files in game directory under the SplitTrain_Data\Resources\Levels subfolder.
