Transport Tycoon updated with new features, fixes and freebies for all to enjoy

Transport Tycoon from 31X has been out on Android for a little bit now and the developers have pushed out one of the bigger updates to the game today. This update brings with it new features as well as plenty of fixes to improve the game. There also happens to be some new freebies to snag as well for those of you who are interested.

For those of you unfamiliar with Transport Tycoon, this is the port of the original game onto mobile devices. Your goal is to become the biggest business tycoon in the transportation industry and you’ll start off with transporting good on the ground. Eventually you’ll make your way to air and water as well, improving your business along the way as you make profit on each shipment.

The new update brings a slew of fixes that were very much needed for this game. There also happens to be a new Halloween-themed title screen as well which is a rather nice touch.

In terms of freebies, these are more like extra goodies you can download separately off of the game’s website. This include three massive screenshots each showing the entire area of the UK, US East Coast and US West Coast scenarios. There is also both the original and newly revamped soundtrack for the game available for download for free as well. Lastly, if you really want to show that you’re a fan of the game, you can download a 3D printer friendly file for free as well so you can have it printing out in 3D.
