The original two RollerCoaster Tycoon games have come to mobile devices with RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic. Just a month after the launch of RollerCoaster Tycoon World, the team at Atari has brought Chris Sawyer’s originals to both iOS and Android devices, allowing park managers to play wherever they want!
RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic has both original games in one updated for mobile devices. Through UI tweaks and menu improvements, the game has been made to work on small-screen touch devices. Nostalgic fans need not worry though, the gameplay is still the same as it was nearly two decades ago, as is the visual style. Although published by Atari, the game was ported to the mobile platform by Origin8 Technologies, who worked in close conjunction with Chris Sawyer, the original creator of the first two RCT games. Sawyer has said that this is something he’s wanted to do for a long time.
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.
RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic is available now for iOS and Andriod devices at the cost of $5.99US. It features all of the same gameplay as the original two games in the series, updated for touchscreen mobile devices.
