RollerCoaster Tycoon® Classic Positive Reviews
Great game, but..I don’t leave many reviews, but something must be said. Don’t get me wrong, this game is amazing if you love tycoon style games. I have been a fan of it since it came out on PC (RCT3 is just okay. There is some kind of magic to be had in RCT, RCT2, and this one, essentially both combined.) You manage a park with finances, simply put. Game has multiple “scenarios” that require you to perform certain tasks in order to win - quite fun and interesting.
My biggest beef lately is that on the new curved iPhone screens, and especially the “null zone” near the top of the screen where the camera etc are are essentially ignored by the game. This makes selecting the “Adjust Land” option, the “Settings” option a repetitious endeavor, and spoiler: both of these are very useful and will be pressed FREQUENTLY...or at least, you will try to. The park info button in the top left is hard to press as well, but not used as frequently. Park map in top right is big enough that it is not an issue. But the other corners...and my eyes brightened when this just got a new update..!! But alas..these issues ignored.
Am I trying to deter you? Not at all. Great game, but unfortunately, probably more suited for anything less than the newest phone, or on an iPad, which to me kind of alienates a big group of players, myself included.
I will be waiting for the day I can complete the scenarios on my phone. Until that time, ride and scream, friends..Version: 1.1.9
It's the old roller coaster tycoon on computerIt's exactly the same, and has the same scenarios where you play a pre-built park. Plus extra. The person complaining about not being able to charge for admission hasn't played through all the scenarios. There's levels where you can charge admission and not for rides etc... There is no free form park so that's different. Also if you did some research about etc you'd find the tricks. The quickest way make money in any scenario is an old cheat that was on the computer version and it works on the phone and iPad too. You make the park admission price free, then for every ride you set the admission price to the excitement rating. so test rides before opening so you can set the price. Oh and you always round down to the nearest 10, so if the ride has an excitement rating of 7.87 (roller coasters are higher) you can charge $7.80 for it. If you do that, guests always ride your rides and most think it's a good value. Then you have tons of people running out of cash. When your value is dropping make sure you assign handymen to sweep their own section rather then placing a bunch randomly. Then make sure the park loops around so people can find the exit after they've gone through everything. You can even set all the guests who are saying "I wanna go home" over by the exit and they will leave and the value goes up..Version: 1.1.9
Great game! Just a couple thingsI have been searching for this for years on the App Store and couldn’t believe it when I saw it and had some doubts but after playing today it’s brought back so many memories it’s exactly like the old computer game and I agree with all the reviews saying worth every penny. Just a couple things I don’t understand why it’s free to get in the park now that was huge back in the day charge 20$ to get in your off to a good start I see some people spend 2 hours in the park spent 6$ have 60$ in their pocket and they’re leaving please change that. Also I got the game last night played all today had an awesome park going money was going up like crazy I had the loan debt paid off had 5,000$ I was set I hit fast forward and got up to let my dog out gone 10 minutes come back I had lost 800 people I was negative 2,000$ I had to take out a loan again that got eatin up and now I’m still -800 people and I am in debt of about 20,000$ including loans I have no idea how to even get back up there’s nothing I can do so I don’t know ... help? What a waste of a day. Thanks other than that I can’t find anything else wrong with it..Version: 1.1.7
Honest ReviewSo I used to play this game years ago on PC. I would always check the app store a lot to see if I could find something as close to this game as possible to play but it always ended in bad copy cat versions. I gave up looking for a while and then my sister texted me telling me to buy this app and try it. She said she had already bought it and it was amazing. I was immediately excited to give it a try myself so I bought it ASAP. Let me tell you this is the best thing I’ve ever purchased in the app store. It is THE EXACT SAME GAME as it was for PC. The only difference ive noticed is that in some maps you can charge for park fee and not for rides, in others you can only charge for rides and not entrance fees. Honestly this made it funner for me because it was more of a challenge. They also included new features that make it easier to play (such as the ‘mark all as same price’ feature so you dont have to constantly change the price of ever food stand you make). Im telling you right now if you liked the PC version have no doubts and buy this app. Not even joking everyone in my household had bought this on their IPads and weve all been addicted the last couple days..Version: 1.1.9
Fantastic, But One ComplaintTo start, if a fan of the original Rollercoaster Tycoon games, this is a wonderful experience. The visuals, sound effects, and mechanics are nearly exact, with some pains from the previous games on PC made simpler for mobile consumption. Unfortunately, every scenario in this game is solely reliant on getting a certain amount of guests in the park with a time frame, or reaching a desired park value. No other options. With that being said, there are an insane amount of scenarios, enough to last for an abundant amount of hours. However, there is no sandbox option and this is my complaint. The purchasable “Toolkit” is the only option for sandbox, and the mechanics for making it sandbox are horrendous. The park land must be set which is incredibly time consuming; when choosing rides and attractions, only a set number can be chosen, and if you’ve forgotten to pick a certain one you want, there is no way to revert back. All of this can be eliminated my adding a “Sandbox Mode,” unlimited money and the option to make the land as big as desired. If this was fixed, the game would be literal perfection..Version: 1.1.9
Please Update Hide Scenery ButtonI can’t say there is anything I regret about purchasing this near-flawless rendition, so 5 stars is a given. However, please update the hide scenery button and underground view functions and all of those checkboxes next to it, to be user enabled permanently on each map. It is beyond frustrating to try and rapidly deploy rides on a map like fungus woods, when the trees “re-sprout” as soon as I lay the foundation for a pre-built ride(then you have to “opt + hide scene” again and again and again and again, to lay entrances, paths, etc., and it becomes frustrating beyond words). Same goes for working on underground maps, which become unbearable. If you just make it so that I check the hide scenery box once to hide the trees while I build, and they remain hidden until I uncheck the box to view them again, the gameplay would improve drastically, same goes for the other checkbox functions. Also I remember getting notifications with how many people died on crashed rides in the original pc version, so please bring that back. Running on iPad, thanks!.Version: 1.1.9
Just a suggestion..I have been a fan of this game since it originally came out on the PC years ago. I would spend hours doing a park. When I found this was finally out on iOS so I could relive some great memories, I found that this is in fact not the classic. This is a combination of RCT and RCT2. There’s nothing really wrong with that as RCT2 added some great visuals and extra little things, but the thing I did not like about RCT2 is that it would block you from doing certain things that were possible in the classic RCT such as entrance fee. I get this may be part of a scenario in some instances, but if it isn’t explicitly for the scenario, we should still be able to have the option of doing an entrance fee instead of it being blocked.
Overall, I love this game and happy to be able to play it again, but I would rather have the RCT classic the way it was than having a blend. At the very least if there is going to be a blend, then perhaps just pull in some of the coaster designs or graphics from the RCT2 but keep the functionality the same as RCT classic..Version: 1.1.9
Thank youI've played this game for ten years and I've loved it for so long but until now I haven't had a practical way to play it. This game combines everything that was great about the first two games and adds more. All of the parks from the first two games and new ones too. Also the addition of LSM launch track on Twister and Giga coasters. It's so great being able to make real launch coasters. There is a problem though with some parks where all my guests wouldn't be able to find the park exit and will get mad and drive my park rating from 999 to 0. Also a glitch where I can't see anything on my map or any of the ride option screens or the construction menus. These are minor things though. The one thing that is really annoying is the amount of battery this game uses however this can't be helped so I can understand. Anyway if you like this game before I can't recommend this game to you enough I've play at least 300 hours so far and don't plan on stopping anytime..Version: 1.1.7
Best. Port. Ever.This game is worth every single penny. It's a game that (surprisingly) is a pleasure to play on the iPad. I am a person who played this game ever since it came out in 1999, I was only nine years old. So I was pretty biased to the original, and roller coaster tycoon two. I knew that nothing could ever beat that game. And it's true, nothing has since. But, this port of roller coaster tycoon is absolute gold. It's worth the money paid, and more. It's easy to play, stays true to the original, and the topping on the cake is that the controls are easy and intuitive. I haven't played another game, or port to the iPad that has been as fantastic as this game. I have found that many games that have been moved over to the iPad from originally being on the computer have been hard to play, and that it almost seemed like a chore to play. But not this one. I have incredible gratitude to the developers for figuring this out and making it available to us. Thank you!!.Version: 1.1.7
Almost the samePretty awesome. Really loved the original and the two expansions. Really pumped to find all that on here. One major disappointment is that I cannot choose to make my park run by admission to the park vs admission to individual rides. I would be really happy if they took it back to the original way and let people choose how they want to do their park. I also can’t figure out how change my view to hide things like hiding scenery, hiding rides, hiding people, underground view, stuff like that. I’m already a little nervous about certain parks I like playing. Not having the ability to change views like that will make things difficult. If it is possible to do and I just can’t find it needs to be made way easier. I feel like I’ve clicked everything without finding it so... yeah. Also, if there is ever a way to make this syncable with the steam version on my Mac that would be really great too..Version: 1.1.9
6 Star! Nostalgia from before pay2playI would honestly have paid twice the cost of the app to finally be done with in-app purchase-ridden games that are really not GAMES but just SCHEMES. I spent countless hours playing this game almost a decade ago and it's a perfect stable clone of everything from the original. I almost was in disbelief when I saw it arrive to the App Store after furiously deleting the other "roller coaster tycoon" poser apps. I was INFURIATED with the "log back in every x minutes" concept that so many games are turning to in order to make any progress and the obvious walls setup only to be taken down for in-app purchase! This game may not be for everyone but it is one of the greatest sandbox games I've ever played!! You buy the game, (you can buy very reasonably priced expansions) and you pay ONE TIME to have it!
I despise the games with $$$$ restrictions to access content so it melts my heart to have this available to the world!! <3 YES!.Version: 1.1.7
Perfect besides one pointThis game is just as much fun as the original one I played on the PC. It is fantastic. The new outline of maps works so well. Each grouping works up from simple to hard.
There are a few problems with the game. The first is the size of the buttons. On an IPhone, the buttons are too small, but you get use to it after a while. The next problem is when digging holes, there is no way to make indents or slants. I doubt I am conveying this properly, but making ponds are a nightmare and a hassle. Finally, this is a personal nitpick but I wish some parks are either free park and payed rides or free rides and payed Park. I wish a few parks were both.
This game is a blast. Perfect for quick pick up and play sessions. Making rides is fun and designing the park enjoyable. I so love playing this game. Get it, figure out the tricks, and each park turns into an enjoyable challenge to stretch your mind..Version: 1.1.9
A truly perfect gameIf you are looking for the nostalgia from when you were a kid I promise you this is it. I’m 26 now and remember playing this game as a very young kid. I was a bit skeptic about this game now being on a touch platform but let me tell you I have put 50+ hours into this game and not 1 single issue. Game runs smooth, the touch platform is perfect, hasn’t crashed once (iPad 6th Gen running iOS 14) this game is EXACTLY the same game on PC, it’s beautifully perfect. I’m typically one to complain but I can’t come up with a single issue I have with this game. If you’re on the fence about buying it let me save u the pros and cons list BUY IT TRUST ME YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED. An absolute perfect game I can’t say it enough. I usually play Xbox one at nights after work, I haven’t touched my Xbox in weeks because I run to this game in my free time now. Act like Nike and just do it friend, buy it, buy it now..Version: 1.1.9
Just like the original!!!I was very surprised when I bought this that it worked exactly like the originals (which are incredible). I have had this game for over 2 months now and I’m still playing! However a few bugs are here and there though, but are not too major, just little things I’d like to point out for their next update. For example, when you place scenery around a ride another piece of scenery, the part of the ride or piece of scenery will slightly disappear where they meet graphically. Another thing is that when guests ride the merry-go-round, no matter how many people are on it, it appears empty with no guests. Lastly, I just want to suggest that the developers should add a multiplayer option, just like openrct2 and add the real parks from the original games. Besides that, if you are looking at this game wondering if it’s a good purchase, I say a big YES!.Version: 1.1.7
By far my favorite tablet gameI’ve played this game on computer since it was released and it’s got such a well balanced and designed gameplay, there’s just nothing quite like it in modern apps. I try other games, so many different games, but I never find myself wanting to go back to them after a few sessions. This game is different. I’ve paid far bigger money for console games that I don’t spend nearly as much time on or get nearly as much enjoyment, relaxation, and satisfaction from. And for a tablet game I absolutely love not having ads or timer countdown locks on features. Extremely worth it to pay the money (such a small amount too compared to the combo of original pc software it contains) and get a complete game free of ad and pay to win hell. Thanks again to the rtc team for making this awesome game and bringing it life again in a new format..Version: 1.1.9
Sound issuesOverall, the game tessellates better to touch controls than I would’ve thought possible. A lot of care was given to ensuring the game runs smoothly and works well with iPhone hardware, so I commend the developers for creating as authentic an experience as possible. However, I have never gotten the audio to work and believe it to be a bug, so I do hope that is fixed soon. The music and sound effects truly make the game the nostalgic experience complete and their presence is sorely missed. Furthermore, it is a bit disappointing that this version is not technically the full package, as certain expansion packs and even the coaster builder are locked behind additional paid content walls, which feels a bit greedy for such an old game. Still, this is the same game you know and love and is more than playable with touch controls..Version: 1.1.9
Better than originalThis is a must own if you like the old style Roller Coaster Tycoon Games. It perfectly replicates the original game and is well worth the money. Including the expansions. On steam and got the game cost more than it does on the App Store and Google play.
The most important seller for this version of the game is improvements. It fixes all of the original PC version glitches. On top of that they make the game easier by adding features. In scenario builder you can now place bunches of scenery instead of placing them one by one. You can now import and export saves, scenarios, tracks , ect. You can even still import mods!
I’ve put hundreds of hours into the original, Steam version, and this version. It’s by far the best of all of them . The colors are more vibrant, no more glitches, great user interface, and so much more..Version: 1.1.7
Great except unlocking levelsI love this game and it brings me such nostalgia. I played it when I was in high school on my computer. The only thing I wish would change is the opening of new color groups. I’ve beat every level except for the two in sapphire where you have to finish building the coasters. I am horrendous at building, which is why I always use the premade ones. But now, the amethyst level won’t unlock until those two levels in sapphire are completed. So now, I’m stuck. I’m not sure if this was the case on the PC game because I never got this far. But it’s very disappointing that I can’t continue onto new levels and have to repeat old levels just to continue to enjoy the game. Other than that, I’ve had no issues with the app crashing or freezing. So happy to be able to play this again!.Version: 1.1.9
Holy moly the nostalgia is over 9000!Its everything you love from your childhood brought into the smartphone age. Just as amazing as i remember. Honestly the best $6 i ever spent in the app store ever. Only 2 kinda minor things i dont like though; why is the scenario creator another $6? Would have been much better at $2 like the 2 expantions. And also i wish i was able to play any scenario i wanted instead of having to unlock them by beating levels. Seriously, why on earth would anyone want to beat the Barony Bridge or Crazy Castle scenarios?? Besides that, this game is just too much fun and still love it either way.
Edit: new third minor thing; can you get rid of the 200 employee limit somehow? Im at 10,600 guests in my custom park and cant really expand anymore because i cant hire more people. Still loving the game though.Version: 1.1.7
Amazing Port to Mobile Devices!I was quite stunned that they were able to bring this classic to mobile devices. After some thought however, it made sense they did, as the game is very doable on iPhone and iPad (and honestly more efficient over PC, in my opinion). This app provides an exorbitant amount of content, as it is a hybrid of the first and second game, providing the mechanics and design from RCT2. There is paid DLC for the app but it is entirely worth the value!
I play the game mostly on my iPad. It’s manageable on the phone, but the bigger screen is a lot easier to see everything. Additionally, the game comes with iCloud saving, and you can start a park on any device and continue building on another.
An overall fantastic game that teaches about managing an amusement park. Highly recommend..Version: 1.1.9
Just like the old days :)Loved that this game performs just like the computer version. Had to get used to not being able to set an entry fee for every park, but just making drinks/food etc. a bit higher allows for progress.
My only issue is that it kept freezing one day I decided to go back to play after a long time and nothing would fixed it ... I couldn’t get into any parks for more than 5 seconds without it freezing up. I had to reinstall and then everything was GONE, including all the progress I had made and game saves. It is linked to my Game Center account but apparently that isn’t enough to retrieve everything lost. I will still play but I know there were a few levels (making rollercoasters specifically to a certain rating) that took me forever to pass. :(
This is the only reason I am not giving 5 stars which it deserved before this happened. 👎🏼.Version: 1.1.9
Reliving my childhoodThis was my absolute favorite game growing up and had all the RTC games and expansion discs for my dad’s pc. I can’t tell you how happy I am to be able to play this again. I don’t know that an Apple version ever existed (even on Steam it’s pc only).
This game also works on the mew M1 iMacs. Can’t get full screen ratio, but plays great with a few crashes ever now and then (even if I hadn’t saved recently it will still load exactly where I left off before the crash).
My only bummer about the iPad experience is adjusting land. On the desktop PCs version you used to be able to click a land plot and drag up to make mountains or down for valleys (that could then be filled with water for water rides). I haven’t been able to figured out how to do that on a touch screen.Version: 1.1.9
Guests get lost far too easy that it doesn’t even represent real life. For example, build a chairlift leading to an elevator for access to an upper level (mountain), and guests somehow do not understand that they need to use both, getting so lost that you can end up going from a park rating above 900 to completely 0, just for building this. The guests should understand connecting 2 transport rides to get around. They also shouldn’t get completely confused by double pathing. That should just work. There is good reason to use it, after all..
In scenario builder, make it so that you can save progress when doing the tedious selecting of rides, shops, scenery items, etc etc. It should be able to be done in multiple sessions. KEEP this in the game, simply allow saves at the very beginning, or move the ride, etc selection after landscape shaping where you can save.
Allow option when beginning a scenario, to own all available land and have construction rights... This is so tedious to go through and update for the park you want. Most of us want to own all the land, not just parts.
Go back to this style of the game. Very few actually like version 3 and it is very unintuitive gameplay wise.
Otherwise, thank you for this game..Version: 1.1.9
Great game! One issue -fixed-I love roller coaster tycoon 1 and 2 on PC. The controls on this game are intuitive and work well. There are just one issue that almost ruins this game. At least 2 roller coaster types don't allow you to go up or down hill when you choose to custom build them. This is a huge flaw that makes custom coasters pointless with those particular roller coasters. Which in a game about building roller coasters is pathetic. Fix your game!!
Update: the broken roller coasters that wouldn't like you go up or down hill have been patched. Very nice to see a pay up front game care to make things right. Absolutely 5 star game. Also the hide supports/rides etc is hidden. Click pause then options. It took me a while to realize those features got ported over too..Version: 1.1.9
Still love this game, But.....I have played this game since I was little, Always liked the original version the best. I now have only apple products So I was very Happy & excited to see it offered for apple products now.
However, I Don’t know who decided for everybody That its Unfair to be able to charge an entrance fee + fees for each ride So They just took away the ability to charge an entrance fee, But whoever decided that, It is Unfair for you to make that decision for every single player.
I love this game, However Its not quite as enjoyable if U don’t have much money in the game to build your park more & more. The only reason I don’t is because I cant charge an entrance fee anymore.
The coding needs to be changed back to the original coding, so People can charge an entrance fee if they would like too. It is a game, Your not charging real people for both, so It is absolutely ridiculous that someone decided for everyone that Its not fair to charge for both. Even in real life there Are places where They charge an entrance fee & for everything in the place.
I need to be able to charge whatever I want for whatever I want too, Nobody is forced to come in my Amusement park if they don’t want too pay what I am charging!.Version: 1.1.9
Near-perfect portThis has everything I love and remember from the original game, right down to being able to pop loose balloons and making ducks quack by clicking on them. I've been enjoying the trip back into my childhood, and it is more than worth the price of the app.
My only complaints are a few glitches; some were from the original game so I don't mind those as much, but the most major is app-specific: whenever anything pops up on the screen (control panel if I'm trying to change volume or music, "20% battery remaining", etc) or if I switch out of the app, the game loses all audio. Sometimes closing the app fixes this, sometimes I have to do it 3 or 4 times before I get my audio back. I've rated it 4 stars out of 5 for this, and would re-rate if they can fix it..Version: 1.1.9
CLASSIC!!I haven’t fallen in love with any of the RCT games since the original. I was so pleasantly surprised to find this on the App Store! And it is exactly as promised - it’s the CLASSIC version! It has a couple of tweaks but in essence, it’s the exact same thing. 100 different scenarios to play. It is so fun and I am totally addicted!
The reason I only gave four stars instead of five is that I think there are a few things that need to change. I wish that it was updated for iPhone XS. Parts of the screen are cut off because of the layout of the iPhone XS. All the time I accidentally swipe up or down, and the sound will turn off until I restart the app. Also, sometimes the thumbnails of the rides and the people don’t show any picture but just a blank screen.
Please update this app for 2019! Thank you!!.Version: 1.1.9
Great Game, but…I found this on the Developer—Origin8’s website under the "Contact Us" link.It is with regret that we’re unable to develop or support our products any longer.
Since starting the mobile journey back in 2008 we’ve developed many titles and have been proud of the positive feedback and community created as a result!
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank our legions of fans for your valued opinions, praise and suggestions over time and hope you have enjoyed our work!
All the very best,
Origin8This explains why this app hasn’t received an update in about 3 years. I know Atari didn’t develop this game, but I really think they should take a try at managing the development of it, instead of just publishing it. Besides, Origin8 made a Windows/Mac version on Steam. So, if Atari could pick up where they left off, and combine those two versions into one compatible version across all macOS, iOS, and iPadOS with a Universal 2 binary, it would more than make up for what Origin8 left behind when they went bankrupt 3 years ago. I’m also curious to find out how Atari handles privacy with this app, so an update like this would be great..Version: 1.1.9
Playable but buggy and abandoned by the developerThis is an incredible and nearly perfect port that is worth every penny. The developer sadly has abandoned this game leaving a number of minor but frustrating bugs. Most, but not all, focus around iPhone X support. I’ve contacted them with reproduction steps only to be ignored. There are some input, UI, and sound issues but this is still a super playable game. Highly recommend the expansions. Chris Sawyer, if you are reading this, we could use some bug fixes! All said, I’ve spent countless hours playing this game and can’t recommend it enough. The controls somehow manage to be even better than the PC version. Wish there was a way you could cheat in the mobile versions but the game is so fun, as is, this is a minor complaint..Version: 1.1.9
THIS IS WHAT I’VE BEEN WAITING FORListen... any bad reviews must be coming from kids who weren’t an original RCT & RCT2 fan growing up. But for me, this is everything I could’ve asked for and more. Do you even know how long I’ve been trying to play the original RCT??? It’s been around 15 years since the last time I got to play it. Ever since then, I have been devising ways to play it that never seemed to work. When I found that it came to the iPhone, my life has finally felt like a void has been filled. My life is now complete. All the magic is still there. Whoever thought of the idea to put the original on the App Store, I wish I can hug you a million times. Whoever you are, I love you so much. Thank you for this. I can now relive my childhood..Version: 1.1.9
Great Remake, needs ImprovementRTC Classic is a remake of the original Roller Coaster Tycoons 1 and 2, and it’s pretty fun. The scenarios are almost exact to the originals, includes almost to all the features of the originals, and even introduces more stuff to make the game even better. My issues with it are as follows: Considering this is a REMAKE and not a direct port, the team could’ve introduced simple stuff that fans have wanted for years, such as testing unfinished rides and a sandbox mode. Also, the amount of vandalism in my park can get insane even though I have like 10 security guards (and the park is usually small. 4/5 because you can play a remastered one of the most iconic games of all time on the go without losing nostalgia, but not 5/5 because they didn’t add simple mechanics fans wanted for years..Version: 1.1.9
Chris Sawyer’s Game!This is THE definition of a perfect port of a perfect game. No, this is not a watered down, weaker version of the master piece Chris Sawyer released in 1999 and 2002; this is HIS mastery. Both RollerCoaster Tycoon 1 and 2, inclusive of all of the expansion packs rolled into one app that you can take on the go in your pocket is worth it in my book, even if I don’t actually build anything on the phone, I just look at my parks that I IMPORT! Yes! You can import parks you or other people have made on the PC (assuming you buy the DLC of course). Other than the expansion packs, scenario builder and import tool, there is NO DLC, no pay to win crap, not the awful Atari RCT4 mobile game, this IS the best game ever. Still prefer it on PC, but nevertheless, I love this game.
TL/DR: Fantastic, flawless port of the best PC game ever..Version: 1.1.7
JUST like the original!I am thoroughly impressed so far with how true to the original PC game this new mobile version is. It’s so addicting and nostalgic. I also appreciate that it saves your park’s progress when you switch to another app, and appears to have fixed certain bugs the PC version used to have, while still keeping many of the quirks that made RCT Classic such a beloved game. One little thing though... I’m only on Forest Frontiers, so I didn’t know if this is true for all parks, but admission is mandatorily free to all guests. Be nice if we were able to charge like in the old game, but of course, this is a tiny nit-picky thing that doesn’t detract at all from the fun of gameplay. 5/5 stars for sure... Worth every penny!.Version: 1.1.9
Great great game.I used to play on the computer, then on Xbox and now I play on my iPad. I love this game and every time this game was made for the updated game player it never disappointed. Playing on my iPad has be very awesome and reminds me of the good old days. Playing is just like I did on the computer. Everything is exactly the same.
Thank you for making this game playable on my iPad. Hours and hours and hours of wasted time playing a game that I really enjoy.
I have a request and I’m asking only because you did such a great job with Roller Coaster Tycoon could you the developer make an edition for iPad of the classic game Rampage. The one from the 80’s was fun and I didn’t mind the update one named Rampage World Tour. I would buy this game instantly. I really hope you are able to make this possible. Again you did a fantastic job with Roller Coaster Tycoon and I really hope people understand that it is worth the money. I know of Smashy City and NO it’s just not the same. I would love to play the original Rampage.
The money people pay is way worth it. The player gets to play over 65 different park themes and challenges.
Thanks again..Version: 1.1.9
Great game till it crashesI always loved this classic rollercoaster tycoon and this is where I have to complain, so far since I upgraded phones this is 2nd time ive has this issue, it loads up fine but when I went to continue or start a new game it freezes shortly after I move the screen anywhere. I’m using an iPhone X. You can hear the crowd and music but it just freezes and you have to exit out via home screen and then shut down the game to reload it, repeatedly, but even then it still continues to do this. Also the remedy that fixed this issue last time was downloading the expansions, I’ve downloaded all 3 now and still this issue.. weeks after getting the DLC for it..Version: 1.1.9
Needs something to make creating scenarios more funThis is a great game don't get me wrong but creating scenarios is a tedious and long process. If there was a way to streamline it that would be nice, like changing the use of the land from unused to owned is a small box that I wish could get to larger sizes.
One thing though is needed more than the rest in the creation area and that is being able to add rides and roller coasters to the park so that they are there when you begin the scenario. Many of the premise scenarios have these and it would be awesome to able to add them into custom scenarios to make realistic scenarios.
Again, thanks for making this top of the line game and I hop that my input is seen and taken into consideration.Version: 1.1.7
Worth every penny and more!The classic game, in all its addictive glory, is back!
Everything you loved about the original game; the sound of a cash register when patrons get on a ride, clumpy graphics, customers complaining about disgusting paths, janitors wandering off to mow the grass instead of sweeping litter, customizable roller coasters, specific rides that are extra popular when it's raining, annoyed patrons looking at their watches when they've been in line too long, and the way they all stop and cheer (and release their balloons) when you reach your goal. It's all here.
Best app ever with no pressure to buy anything else. There are so many levels to do. I will buy the expansion packs later - but for now I am having hours of fun with my original purchase.
There are a few reviews requesting an option to have a single admission park rather than costs per ride. Note that option is available in certain challenges - like everything else, you need to make it to that level to play it.
Everything about his game is true to its original PC form. A great purchase. You will love this app..Version: 1.1.7
It’s Great, just buggy on the iPhone X and iPhone 11I have an iPhone 11, and when playing, if I accidentally slide down into the control center or into a menu on my phone, the game mutes/pauses itself and when I unpause the game, there is no sound! This means that every time I accidentally slide into a menu on my phone, I have to restart the game if I want to play with sound. (Which I do.) I also wish that there was a way to make the user interface larger for those of us with bigger screens, and have it configured for iPhone X and 11 so that some of the buttons aren’t cut off. It is very difficult to press many of the buttons because of this issue, and the game is sometimes unplayable. I hope that these issues get fixed soon so that I can actually enjoy this game in all of its glory!.Version: 1.1.9
Wow....better than the original(s).I loved this game when it originally came out in 1999, 2002, and 2004 (RCT1,2,3)
But to have it on iOS is just amazing, especially the mods they added to coasters like the LSM Launch Tracks on Twister Giga, and Looping coasters.
However, they didn’t modify the scenario editor at all, and it is still just as mediocre as the first 2 games. They also did not include any of the mods that users created thru New Element, among others, to create new flat rides, coaster types (RMC, B&M Wing, intamin wing &meg-lite to name a few). This game is really good but I think that Atari could really tap into more of its potential than they have. 4/5 stars. I’ve loved it since I’ve had it, which has been over 24 months!.Version: 1.1.9
Please update for newer phonesI love this game. I used to play it as a kid and when I saw it on the App Store I knew I had to have it. It brought back the game and all the nostalgia with it. Just a few things. I bought the game back when iPhone 7 came out. However, The last update was 2 years ago. At this time the iPhones had squared screens and no dent for the cameras. The app still assumes it’s a square screen so while it does work, it cuts part of the menus off in on newer iPhones. Either way it is still worth getting as everything still works as intended, however, I would honestly be willing to even pay a small price for the UI update since it’s so old..Version: 1.1.9
Just one thing!I love this game it’s just like the original I used to play as a kid on the computer! All the sounds and rides and little quirks are still there and I love it. But one thing I used to love was to rename stuff/people/rides/etc. now I know you can in this version too but on the iPhone 10 x the screen cuts off the typing so you can’t see what you’re typing. Super minor I know but I thought I’d throw in my two cents. Other than that it’s virtually perfect replica and a little more! Thanks!
Edit: it would be cool to be able to play this version on MacBook! I don’t know if that’s possible but I would spend wayyyy to much time if I could haha ! Great game.Version: 1.1.9
The game was fantasticIt’s just reminded me when I was in my childhood sitting front computer and playing the game, the difficult of levels are perfect, however there is only one thing I don’t happy with is that rides always getting old and you must drop down the price to satisfy the guests, you know I spent lots of time to build numbers of roller coasters(due to the roller coasters are part into mountains or undergrounds, so I can’t apply saved designs) and want to build a park that I dreamt, but the guests are like greedy monsters to ask me to drop down the prices to 50 cents or less even free, it making my works flowed by the water, it’s very reduce my patience to the game..Version: 1.1.9
PerfectThis is easily the best game I’ve ever downloaded on my phone, it is exactly the same as the RCT / RCT2 games for pc. The phone controls work extremely well, I’ve seen other reviews complaining that they do not fit on newer iPhones, but everything fits and works on my 11 Pro max as of 6/21. This game is absolutely worth $4.99 it is both challenging and intuitive. The environment is timeless, elegant, and the overall gameplay is very satisfying. It is the polar opposite of the rct mobile game released years ago. It is not a “pay to win” game. There are in-app purchases, but they are only for expansion packs, just as you would see in any other game. 6/5 stars.Version: 1.1.9
I wish more Tycoon Classics were made for IOSI really hated all those ‘Tycoon’ style build your own park/house/farm where you are forced to wait forever or pay money to get the gizmos you want. I just want a fun game that I can build neat things and there are no extra charges except the occasional expansion packs.
This was one of the first tycoon style games I played on my first computer and I loved building parks. So it was a joy to see it now available for my IPad. It’s easy to use although I still have trouble building roller coasters that are not too extreme (user error!). I hope the makes of Railroad and Zoo Tycoons consider bringing their games to the 21st Century!.Version: 1.1.9
This is the kind of game I want to see on the App StoreIt seems like every game coming out these days is free to play garbage with gameplay revolving entirely around purchased consumables. And with iOS’ switch to 64 bit, many of the paid “full game” apps from the early days of the App Store no longer work. Their developers abandoned them in favor of free to play junk (RIP Simcity Deluxe)
This is the real deal, the classic game in its entirety with some nice enhancements for mobile. The in app purchases are added content and not some stupid currency, another plus. This is the only game I play on my iPad these days. Please, App Store developers, make more great games like this!.Version: 1.1.7
Best Game Ever!! Check Out My Suggestions Please!⤵️I played this game on the computer when I was younger and I was so happy to find it in the App Store. There are so many park options and everything is free!!! I love the never ending ride creations and scene setups!!! If I could ask for one thing... maybe there can be a way that we can visit other people’s parks just for fun!! I’m always so intrigued when I see the front title page showcasing top park examples, and it would truly make the gaming experience perfect if we could all check out each other’s creations just for fun!! Please consider, this is my favorite game. Thank you guys for everything you do!!.Version: 1.1.9
Just like the original. It's GREAT!This is the best classic game ported to iPad. I can remember loosing hours and staying up for days when I was younger playing this and now I'm doing the same. It's so close to the original game I feel like they didn't change anything. Which is great. What nice is any RCT2 parks, rides and scenarios work on it to. Just get the tool box expansion and you can import and export many objects.
I can think of many other games I hope they do the same with. Next I'd love to see zoo tycoon, sim city 2000, sim tower, the sims and many more. They need to do the same though as this game. Meaning keep the game play and graphics of the old game..Version: 1.1.7
AdmissionLove this game, I would give 5 stars if you would updated so we can charge an admission price like you are able to on the desktop version..Version: 1.1.7
Great game, one bug with soundAwesome game just like the old computer version. However when you have the app open and use the app switching feature (double tap home button), when you return to the app the sound/music is disabled and can't be heard unless you force close the app.Version: 1.1.7
SandboxSandbox SANDBOX MODE PLEASE PLEASE UPDATE PLEASE DON’T FORGET.Version: 1.1.9
Who’s still playing in 2020 ??Sometimes the sound cops out but I think is because I have a larger phone. Takes me back to when I was a kid. It’s like the only game I can play for hours!.Version: 1.1.9
Wish admission could be chargedGreat game! Love it!! Just wish I could change admission to the parks like on the desktop app!.Version: 1.1.9
Its fine but has a lot of flaws…This game is pretty fun and I find it awesome that we can play this classic game from the 90’s on the go.
The issue is there’s a few issues:
1) I hated the fact that you can’t charge people for the admission to come in. This will cause us to lose some potential income.
2) its actually a lot harder to play this game without mouse control. Touch screen for this game actually isn’t as easy as it sounds because reflexes on your finger is a bit faster or at least for me anyways but I would not be surprised if that’s the case for many people though..Version: 1.1.9
Game is great, a few bugsGame is amazing! The resolution is lower than I thought but that’s expected from a really old game. It’s still just as fun as I remember. The sound cuts out once in a while because you went out of the app and came back..Version: 1.1.9
Certified Hood ClassicOdd bugs here and there but it’s classic Roller Coaster Tycoon not much to say. I honestly recommend it only if you have a large phone or any tablet!.Version: 1.1.9
FunCoaster building scenarios are almost impossible to beat via app, would be nice to have scenarios unlocked because otherwise you’ll never get past coral group, disappointed that the RCT fandom and RCT open scenarios generally don’t work on the app either ...Version: 1.1.9
Buggy and no sandbox modeScenery tabs randomly disappeared. I couldn’t place anymore trees or statues. Also, I bought this for sandbox years ago and it doesn’t even have the mode!.Version: 1.1.9
Needs admission price & sandboxReally good needs few things for 5 stars.Version: 1.1.9
DecentSound works, until you either leave the app, pull down the notification bar or use control center. Otherwise, great game. Also, enabling charging a park entry fee would be a nice addition..Version: 1.1.9
No extra roller coaster laps!I would give a higher rating if you could make roller coaster have multiple laps!!!.Version: 1.1.9
Great but needs update for iPhone 11 screenThe game is great but it would be better if we could get it updated for iPhone 11 screen. We cannot access..Version: 1.1.9
The Best It Can Be For A Phone Game.This version is just as good as the old computer one adding a lot of different features and WAY more maps than I remember. I will say it is a little bit too easy to accidentally pause the game by hitting the edge of the screen. A good feature I don’t think was on my old disc version is you can speed up time up to 4x the speed..Version: 1.1.9
Love!!!Works great! been playing on my iphone for years
Just needs an update to fit the screen of iphone 11.Version: 1.1.9
Just like the PC versionRoller coaster tycoon classic is just like the PC version from years ago, unlike the other apps that have a similar name and not the same game. Well worth the money if you played this for hours on a computer. You can also change the admission price after completing a few levels..Version: 1.1.9
Atari99This game is very nostalgic, but please add a sandbox game mode and allow us to charge for admission!.Version: 1.1.9
Almost perfectA couple minor glitches. For example, the sound only works half the time. But it’s otherwise perfect and exactly how I remember from childhood! I love it.Version: 1.1.9
A ton of nostalgia, wish the aspect ratio was proper on the iPad Pro 11One of my favourite PC games growing up, brings back tons of nostalgia and is still equally as fun. I enjoy the campaign and the bonus content. Only complaint is the aspect ratio hasn’t been updated to work on the newer all-screen iPad Pro’s, will bump up two stars if every fixed (highly doubtful due to the last update being 2+ years ago)..Version: 1.1.9
Best game on my phoneThey did such a great job of converting the original PC version to a version that works for iPhones. I used to play this game for hours on end on our family computer when I was a kid without getting bored and somehow the mobile version still manages to deliver the same amount of fun. Definitely worth the cost. The only thing I would change is allowing the parks to charge an admission fee, but the game is so good I wouldn’t even knock off a star for that..Version: 1.1.9
Just like the old days!!I absolutely LOVE this game! I used to play for hours as a kid! Just one thing...: THE ZOOM!!! It needs to be more HD because gurl either you zoom in or out, the quality is TERRIBLE..Version: 1.1.9
Parfait mais manque un trucTout est parfait comme avant mais, pourquoi on ne peut pas mettre de prix a l’entré du parc sa rend les partie enuillance car manque de fond....Version: 1.1.9
Plz add a sandbox modeIt would be better if there was a sandbox mode where you have unlimited space and money..Version: 1.1.9
What happened?I loved playing this game. Now all of a sudden it will not load. I can pull up the app in the App Store. I click on the open button but it will not load. Not sure why!.Version: 1.1.9
I’m 13 again!It’s not perfect, but it’s pretty freaking close. Amazing job, devs!.Version: 1.1.9
Love it!I love this game exactly like the old versions. I just wish I could charge admission to the park like on the PC versions. Makes it hard to complete some harder parks without having that extra money.Version: 1.1.9
Easy to learn and so fun!Better than tycoon touch as you can customize it much easier. Older looking, but so many scenarios too!.Version: 1.1.9
UI elements are so small!There should be an option to choose the buttons and windows sizes. It’s really small.
Otherwise, the game is as fun as the desktop version :) thanks!.Version: 1.1.9
Definitely worth the money☺️Love love love it! Just the like the classic version. Yes, you can’t charge admission in every level, but there are certain levels you can(and in those, rides are free; but you can still charge for the shops). I can spend hours with this game. For sure worth the money..Version: 1.1.9
Meilleur que les classic RCT et RCT2 sur PCMeilleur que les classic RCT et RCT2 sur PC, j'ai tellement joué d'heure sur PC que je pensais pas jouer autant sur la tablette, mais le jeu ce contrôle tellement bien que j'arrête pas de jouer encore et pour le reste c'est pareil comme les autres. Merci d'avoir conçu ce jeu.

Fantastic!Having spent a bunch of my youth playing the original game on pc this doesn’t disappoint. It’s a great game with lots of levels to play.
I remember though that the original game had an option to view through scenery, underground, through ride supports, etc. I do find it hard to see sometimes and wish that was available. Still 5/5..Version: 1.1.9
JackGreat game, but wish there was a sandbox mode, paid like 9 dollars for this.Version: 1.1.9
No iPhone X SupportLove the game. Just wish I could play it on my iPhone X.. I’ve emailed them with screenshots, most of the game works. But the most important parts (ride / build menus) overlap with the X screen features rendering them impossible to access. Please upgrade this..Version: 1.1.9
