Subway Scramble Subway Scramble gives the player an opportunity to take control of the subway lines in five different world cities and reach the highest possible score by arranging the transportation of people between the stations. Unlike most games of this kind Subway Scramble is not a tycoon, but a blend of arcade and logical game.

Confronted by different situations the player should quickly response and think of the solution that will bring him the maximum possible score while keeping the accidents rate low. Each stage has a passenger?s quota that should be met before the stage can be considered completed. Completing the stage will award the player golden tokens (maximum of three per one stage), while gathering a sufficient number of tokens will unlock the new city for playing.

There are total of five cities in the game. They?re New York, London, Paris, Moscow and Seoul. Each city features its own designs for subway cars, stations and bonus items. The number of cars to control, complexity of the lines and the passengers? quota increase with each new city.

Apart from the Around The World mode described above the game also features a Rush Hour mode that challenge the player to compete against time in order to deliver the given amount of passengers. [source:mobygames]
