Do you remember having a wooden train set when you were little? Ri-li is a neat little amusement that will remind you of those days.
Playing Ri-li is simple: there's a wooden train set with a short train, and rail cars scattered around the track. As the train moves, you can set each switch to direct the train. You can only set the one switch in front of the train; to set other switches you must wait until the train passes the previous switch. Your goal is to collect all the rail cars, and the challenge is that each rail car you collect is added to your train, making it increasingly easy to run your train into itself.
This game is simple but very well executed. It runs in 18 different languages, has three speeds and many different levels, and has a classic simplicity (like Tetris or Same-gnome) that makes it a great way to pass time.
Note: Ri-li had an unusually high CPU utilization on a test system. If you're using this on a laptop, beware of the battery drain.
