[Qoo Review] RollerCoaster Tycoon® Classic First Impressions


Forest Frontiers, Dynamite Dunes and Evergreen Gardens are names that RollerCoaster Tycoon fans would certainly be familiar with and with the new RollerCoaster Tycoon® Classic now available for purchase on the app store, fans can re-kindle their spark of creativity and build their own dream park in old school graphics! The original RollerCoaster Tycoon classic amusement park simulator was released back in 1999, and easily became an iconic age of its generation. With the newer versions of the game receiving decent scores on the app stores, Atari tugs at our nostalgia by brining back the unique flavors of the original game.


Just like the original game, players can choose where they want to build their park. Different maps features different backgrounds to give players a theme to follow (if they wish), and create a completely unique park with different rides. With realistic goals for players to achieve, the game motivates players to really pay attention to every little detail in order to fulfill their given objectives.


If you’re one of those who are objective driven, fixed designs for various rides are available to save you the time and energy of creating your very own ride, but let’s be honest making insane rides is where the fun is at! Crazy bends and insane steep drops lets you build unrealistic rides as abstract as you want, but just like real life, what you want may not always be possible. To build your ride requires an incredible amount of gold, and if you try to build something too grandeur…


You just might not be able to afford it. Some say desperate time calls for desperate measures and in RollerCoaster Tycoon® Classic, players can really go through with ‘desperate measures’.


The game gives player a great amount of freedom with the park from its rides to even its facilities no matter how important they may be for your park’s visitors!

Unlike modern games which constantly provides hints and reminds for assist players in reaching their goal, RollerCoaster Tycoon® Classic stays true to its origins in which players must pay attention to feedback given by visitors as well as their desires and concerns. Through modifications to suit your visitor’s needs, you too can feel the sense of satisfaction when cash starts rolling in, or when you finally recover form all the money you lost trying to build that crazy ride you had in your mind.



Of course, leaving you with the final choice of whether or not you put these comments into consideration when developing your park is what makes RollerCoaster Tycoon® Classic such an addictive game.
