RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic out now iPad.JPG

RollerCoaster Tycoon is one of those classic games that you’d imagine would be just about perfect to play on the latest iOS devices, no matter how old the original game is. Clearly Atari was thinking the same thing, as it has just released RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic for iOS.

This new version of the game combines the best features of RollerCoaster Tycoon 1 and RollerCoaster Tycoon 2, as players get to create, customize, and run their own rollercoaster parks, including managing the staff and finances, as they compete to build the most outrageous roller coasters imaginable.
"As the creator of the original RollerCoaster Tycoon® PC games many years ago, I have seen how much excitement and entertainment they have brought to players all over the world," said Chris Sawyer, Producer. "It was my long term ambition to bring the classic game to modern touch screen devices as its visual style and tactile nature are so well suited to smartphones and tablets. Working with Origin8 Technologies' development team, we have been able to modernize the classic gameplay for touch screen devices while preserving the unique graphical style of the original RCT games. I believe fans of the RCT series will greatly enjoy playing the classic titles enhanced on a new platform."

"Bringing RollerCoaster Tycoon® Classic™ to handheld devices was important to us because we wanted to share the authentic playability and depth of gameplay of the original RCT games to both a new audience and long-time fans of the series," said Fred Chesnais, Chief Executive Officer, Atari. "Working with Chris Sawyer has been a wonderful experience and it has enabled us to remain faithful to the RCT games that successfully launched the RCT franchise."

Here are some of the game’s key feautures.
  • The Original RollerCoaster Sim: Experience all the fun from the original RollerCoaster Tycoon® and RollerCoaster Tycoon® 2 games, with a new app that combines the best elements of both classic titles.
  • Coaster Construction: Create incredible roller coasters – Quickly build a pre-made design or use the intuitive piece-by-piece building tools to design and theme your own unique rides.
  • Park Designer: Keep your guests happy by building gentle or wild rides, food and drink stalls, water rides, and even transport rides to take them around the park; customize your park by building scenery, fine-tuning the landscape, and routing the footpaths.
  • Park Management: Run your park's marketing and finances to make a profit while attracting more guests; organize your staff to keep the park running well and looking its best.
  • Exciting Environments: Build the ultimate theme park in a variety of challenging environments, from the tranquility of Forest Frontiers to the bustling commerce of Megaworld Park.
  • Park Scenarios: Progress through 95 classic park scenarios from RollerCoaster Tycoon® and RollerCoaster Tycoon® 2.
  • Authentic Gameplay: Classic-style characterful isometric graphics and original amusement park music and sound effects.
  • Packed with Content: Includes hundreds of types of roller coasters and rides, and dozens of different shops, stalls, and facilities.
