Chris Sawyer’s original Roller-coaster Tycoon games are still my favorites in the genre, and I still get a joy out of teasing park visitors in subtle and not-so-subtle ways. Is there anyone else? Roller-coaster Tycoon Classic, an unexpected mobile release from Atari, has me overjoyed.
This iOS and Android game “combines the greatest components of both legendary titles” and appears to be a mobile adaptation dream come true. Sawyer built the app, which costs $6.
Here’s what to expect in precise terms while playing RollerCoaster Tycoon
Create fantastic roller coasters with coaster construction – Use the easy piece-by-piece building tools to design and theme your unique rides or quickly build a pre-made design.
Build mild or crazy attractions, food and drink stalls, water rides, and even transportation rides to move your guests throughout the park to keep them pleased. Build scenery, fine-tuning the landscape, and route the trails to make your park unique.
Park Management: Manage your park’s marketing and finances to increase revenue while attracting more visitors.
Build the ultimate theme park in a range of tough situations, ranging from the serenity of Forest Frontiers to the frantic commerce of Megaworld Park.
Scenarios in the Park: Play through 95 iconic Roller-coaster Tycoon and Roller-coaster Tycoon 2 park situations.
Original amusement park music and sound effects, as well as classic-style characterful isometric images.
Packed with Information: There are hundreds of various roller coasters and attractions to choose from, as well as dozens of different stores, kiosks, and facilities.
There are add-ons in Classic, even though it isn’t a free-to-play game with energy meters or indefinite buy-ins.
Long-time fans will recmetersognise the Wacky Worlds and Time Twister extensions ($2 each), which bring more park situations and content. The Toolkit ($6) enables you to design and edit scenarios, construct bespoke coasters, and import/export “saved parks, park scenarios, and ride designs.” This premium functionality can also be used to import “most” parks and scenarios created in Roller-coaster Tycoon 2 on PC.
If you spent hundreds of hours designing amusement parks on a big desktop PC as I did, the announcement of Atari’s Roller-coaster Tycoon Classic’s release for Android and iOS smartphones is one of the finest things you’ll hear all day. (It’s true; this favorite was my favorite game!)
It’s also the latest in a long line of classic game adaptations for mobile devices, which began with Pokemon Go’s rapid journey to the top of the Google Play store. Then there was Super Mario Run, which had 40 million downloads in the first four days. Capcom has already announced that the original six Mega Man games will be released on mobile devices next month, and now Atari has released RollerCoaster Tycoon.
Atari today announced that RollerCoaster Tycoon Legendary, a hybrid of the classic Windows PC game and its sequel, is now available for $5.99 for Android and iOS.
The game isn’t a compilation of the two games; rather, it’s a single product that incorporates elements from both RollerCoaster Tycoon and RollerCoaster Tycoon 2. That means you may play scenarios from the first game with new features like the option to put rides and other attractions at different heights above and below ground.
RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic was produced by London-based Origin8 Technologies and features Chris Sawyer, the original developer of both games.
In a news release, Sawyer remarked, “As the inventor of the first RollerCoaster Tycoon PC games many years ago, I have seen how much excitement and fun they have provided to people all over the world.” “Bringing the traditional game to current touch screen devices has been a long-term goal of mine because its visual style and tactile nature are so well suited to smartphones and tablets.” While the isometric view and old-school aesthetics of the original games are retained in RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic, Origin8 updated the gameplay and controls for mobile devices.
In-app purchases are available in RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic, although none of them appear to be malicious. The main game comprises 95 situations from RollerCoaster Tycoon and RollerCoaster Tycoon 2; more scenarios can be obtained by purchasing the $1.99 add-ons Wacky Worlds (17 scenarios) and Time Twister (14 scenarios), which were published in 2003 as additions to RollerCoaster Tycoon 2.
The Toolkit, which costs $5.99, is the other microtransaction. That update dramatically improves RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic’s capabilities, bringing the mobile game up to par with its PC counterparts’ feature set. It allows users to construct their own scenarios as well as design and save coasters for use in future scenarios. The Toolkit also allows users to share park designs with one another, as well as import save data from the PC version of RollerCoaster Tycoon 2
The basic gameplay in all RollerCoaster Tycoon games is the same. To begin a new game, you must first select a scenario, which has tasks for you to fulfill. Achieving a certain park grade, a certain corporate worth, or having a certain number of coasters are all examples of objectives. Most scenarios involve a deadline, such as fulfilling all objectives by the end of Year 3.
Once you’ve completed a scenario by completing all of the objectives, you’ll be able to try out more. RCT Classic features 95 situations from RCT 1 and 2, ensuring that you’ll never be bored.
