Rollercoaster Tycoon Classic now on app store

Rollercoaster Tycoon Classic now on app store

So we just found this!
Chris Sawyer's original Rollercoaster Tycoon and Rollercoaster Tycoon 2 was released on the App Store as one game, Rollercoaster Tycoon Classic, back in December (how did we miss this?).

 

The game has been rebuilt for the iPhone / iPad with touch in mind, but the main game is exactly the same, it's so similar infact it feels like a full port.
This time though, you get both original games 1 and 2 in the one app, with all the scenarios of the original two games.
The expansion packs are there too, but they are offered as in app purchases.
Mind you, that's the only in app purchase to speak of and no annoying adverts to be found, you are buying the full game here.

 

For those of you who don't remember the original, it's a theme park management game with some sweet rollercoaster building, you can fully customise pretty much everything about your park, including colour schemes, every twist and turn of the rollercoaster, the jobs each handy man does, times between ride inspections and so on.
I lost many a day / weekend playing this on my PC back in the day, and expect a few such days to pass me by on my phone now!

 

The only down side is the tabs and buttons to change ride prices and other buttons are a tad bit small and bit of a fiddle on a phone.
Having said that, it is well done and not too much of a pain to do on an iPhone 6 though I wouldn't want to bother on anything smaller than that.

The iPad fairs better, just a bit easier to tap the tiny buttons with.

 

So an overall HollettGaming rating of 5 stars: you'll be playing for ages and ages, lots of optiions and scenarios to play, graphics are retro of course but appealing all the same, and you will find it hard to put down.
