This game is somewhat similar to Frogger. You control your Rail Runner (aka Bill Switchman) using the arrow keys. You start at the top of the screen and must cross a number of train tracks with moving trains and handcars to get to the five Herman Hobos located at the bottom of the screen. At the first level, hitting a train will cause Bill to die. Getting to Herman at the bottom of the screen will instantly score 1000 points. At level 2 you will actually have to guide Herman back to the top of the screen. At level 3, both trains and handcars will kill Bill. You start with three Bills.
