The original RollerCoaster Tycoon (1999) and RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 (2002) have been remastered as RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic. RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic originally launched last December on mobile devices. Now it’s also…
It’s shaping up to be a fine year for theme park sims. Not long after the release of RollerCoaster Tycoon spiritual successor Planet Coaster, original RCT publisher Atari has launched RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic. RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic combines the first two classic RCT games for mobile devices.
“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 at Atari. “I believe fans of the RCT series will greatly enjoy playing the classic titles enhanced on a new platform.”
RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic was developed for iOS and Android by Origin8, and produced by original series creator Chris Sawyer.
The mobile port includes all the features of the classic theme park sims. It includes coaster construction, guest management, original music, and over 90 scenarios. The number of scenarios suggests that the port includes all the expansions released for RCT 1 and 2, which is a ton of content.
This news means that you can now play the first three RollerCoaster Tycoon games on your mobile device, as RCT 3 was released last Summer. If you’re yearning for a proper theme park follow-up on PC, look no further than Planet Coaster. It’s developed by the original team of RCT3. In my review I said it was “absolutely the RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 you’ve been waiting for.”
