Transport Tycoon
Posted at 19:03 on 13th October 2013

For the past few months my team at AppyNation has been working with publishers 31X (Chris Sawyer’s company) and developers Origin8 Technologies to help bring Transport Tycoon to iOS and Android.

It’s available as a universal app which natively supports iPhone and iPad device configurations.
