No microtransactions, no ads, no nonsense. Just a great game, done right.
The Roller Coaster Tycoon series’ fortunes have been up and down like… well, like a roller coaster, lately. After a decade long absence following the disappointing Roller Coaster Tycoon 3, Roller Coaster Tycoon saw a new disappointing 3DS release, an even more disappointing iOS release that actually had the tenacity to bill itself as the fourth mainline entry in the saga, and a new, planned PC release called Roller Coaster Tycoon World, which has already seen two developer shifts.
Meanwhile, the original developer of these games, Frontier, has decided to port the third game in the series, Roller Coaster Tycoon 3, to iOS devices. The catch? There is no catch. The game has been ported with new, optimized touch controls, no microtransactions, and no shady ads or DLC.
Pinch me too, I must be dreaming.
It’s available on the App Store right now for $3.99- you need an iPhone 5 or above, running iOS 7 or higher. If you are planning on running this on you iPad, you need, at the very least, an iPad Air.
