United States, 1830: 'The New World' is in its ascendancy. Industry is booming, and the race is on to establish the most dominant and powerful rail empire in all of North America.

In Railway Empire, you will create an elaborate and wide-ranging rail network, purchase over 40 different trains modelled in extraordinary detail, and buy or build railway stations, maintenance buildings, factories and tourist attractions to keep your travel network ahead of the competition. You'll also need to hire and manage your workforce if you want to ensure an efficient train service, whilst also develop over 300 technologies ranging from mechanical improvements to the trains themselves to workplace infrastructures and advanced amenities as you progress through five eras of technological innovations.

However, you can't just build and research your way to the top - the competition never sleeps, and to keep your business on track you may have to resort to more cutthroat tactics as you attack and sabotage your opponents through raids and industrial espionage.

Pokemon Crystal is a real blast from the past, following on the trend of bringing vintage Pokemon games to the 3DS handhelf via a code in a box. The game's an enhanced version of Pokemon Gold and Silver a dash of different Pokedex data and new puzzles. It also offered the chance to play as a female trainer for the first time.

The main story follows the lines of the previous Pokemon titles fairly closely in as much as you have to travel around battling and catching wild Pokemon. Once you catch a Pokemon you can train it up for battle against other trainers and work your way up the Johto league.

As with previous games in the series, Crystal is a game of rewarding patience. You travel the game world collecting and training and after some time you should have an array of pretty tough little pocket monsters. You can then link up with another player to see who has the strongest deck and the best tactics.
