Cube Trains is a free puzzle game where you build elevated railways in a city. It features 3D puzzles, unlimited undo/redo, and smart placement of pieces. The non-linear level graph means you don't have to beat a level before unlocking the next one. The game comes with a built-in level editor, so you can build and share your own corners of the city.

This site (and game) is released under the same license as Cube Trains, which is the same license as Frogatto & Friends (whose engine is used for this project). I think it boils down to all being "It's under copyright, but we promise to share." Cube Trains, CT, and associated branding are ©2011 and all that stuff.
By using this site, we both agree to be decent, reasonable people. Also, it's not my fault if anything bad happens because of Cube Trains. Sorry, but you'll have to use it at your own risk.
Cube Trains is free.
Not just free-to-play, but free to win. There are no popups asking for credit cards to buy in-game currency with. No way to buy your way past a level. Just the game, pure and simple, as it should be. But I hear you saying, I know that if I am not the buyer I am the product. But I hear you saying, you must have an angle! I do, but it's a relatively innocent one. Below, you can buy an expansion pack for $2.00. It bumps the total number of levels to 20, and grants access to a cosmetic water tile in the editor. Nothing major, no cliffhangers resolved or anything like that. It is an expansion of the original, not a completion. You are not my product, and shall never be so. You are my customer, my supporter!
Even if you haven't bought anything.
Players tend to beget players. The more people play the game, the more people will play the game. Even if you'll never buy the expansion, you've still given me a degree of support by simply paying attention to it. It counts. Thank you.
Why is Cube Trains free, anyway?
It is free because I want to have people play it. Basically I put a ridiculous amount of time into it, and at this point I want to show it off more than I want to be paid for it. That said, I put a ridiculous amount of time into it, and I could really use some money. Hence the expansion, which tries to avoid making the original game 'not worth it' while still being fun. I did not want the original game to wind up being 'just a demo', either. To counteract the forces of capitalism pulling all the effort towards the expansion pack, I've open-sourced the game on GitHub. That way, I am accountable for my actions, and I cannot make the game into 'just a demo'.
I want to do the right thing.
