RollerCoaster Tycoon® Classic Reviews

Would love the controls on the right side. Maybe optional.

Great game still and is very much the original. Would definetly reccomend.

This game is great and it takes us back in time. We just had one comment, we remember in the PC game being able to see thru supports? Is this no longer an option for IOS or am we just missing it? It would be very helpful if it still is an option.

Im in our late 20s and grew up playing this game on the PC. Its almost exactly like the PC version, even down to the hidden Easter eggs of changing guests names. The gameplay is smooth and feels natural on a phone or iPad. Building/terraforming is exactly the same and as fun as ever, although a stylus definitely comes in handy. Theres TONS of levels, honestly more than we remember on the PC version from years ago. Simply put, if you loved the original PC version, youll love this. Easily the best game we’ve bought through the App Store.

You dont know how many time we’ve come to the App Store looking for this game or similar. We loved playing this game when we were a kid. Thank you for finally porting it to the App Store.

Remember running into the computer room, booting up your old family computer, and playing for hours and hours? That same feeling has been encapsulated on your iPhone. Take this timeless game with you anywhere and feel like a kid once more! Fabulous game, now on to the sims classic…

Best game on the App Store by far. Throws us right back into 1999! Great functionality, still challenging to play, a complete classic! Thank you so much for giving iPhones a perfect rendering of a pc game! Please give us an update! Id love to love this game again. Its been a year or so since we’ve picked it up and Im bored :,(

Addicting and amazing!! Just like the original version we loved as a kid. We spend hours a day on each level we give this app a 10/10.

This game seems expensive at first but you get everything – no in app purchases. We recommend watching a tutorial because the mechanics are more for a desktop. But its such a fun game and addicting.

Story time: when we were a freshman in high school we tried to download roller coaster tycoon to our Mac from a third party because we wanted it so bad. It ended up only downloading malware and we were so mad we couldnt play this game on our Mac. This app CHANGED THE GAME for us, such a blessing to finally be able to get it on our Mac devices!!! We love how it is the exact same game as the originals. Its exactly what we wanted it to be!!!!

This is a reaction its a classic its not meant to be changed so please stop asking for updates the only updates that may occur are iOS updates or better controls that should be all tho this is a classic not a brand new game that needs lots of updates its a classic.

We love this game its just like the original we used to play as a kid on the computer! All the sounds and rides and little quirks are still there and we love it. But one thing we used to love was to rename stuff/people/rides/etc. Now we know you can in this version too but on the iPhone 10 x the screen cuts off the typing so you cant see what youre typing. Super minor we know but we thought Id throw in our two cents. Other than that its virtually perfect replica and a little more! Thanks! Edit: it would be cool to be able to play this version on MacBook! We dont know if thats possible but we would spend wayyyy to much time if we could haha ! Great game.

Hi there. IPhone XR. Main menu needs the option to adjust screen size, or adjust the location of interface buttons along edges. Unable to tap on them makes it difficult to play our favorite mobile game. The 4 corners need to scoot inward towards center. During game: the adjust land button, the pause game button, the globe button, & the park menu button – are all inaccessible & cant be used. Please fix.

This game is the best! Much easier to control compared to the cold computer version. Only issue is, our ride cameras/views disappear and if we get a notification while we play the sound stops working until we exit the game and reload it.

Its so good but can we have Chinese translation ?

Awesome game just wish the A. We were Better with the Guests like not complaining so much and not breaking park benches but overall really fun game!.

This game is EXACTLY like the the classic roller coaster tycoon and its amazingg. Addicted to say the least :)

This game is EXACTLY like the old version! Just wish there was a sandbox mode.

The game is the greatest will be played forever just wish you can updated it to like the full game actually when u can build your own park set your entrance prices and etc but overall greatest game and Smartest idea to bring it to ios.

Im so sick of all these new sims and tycoons with all the busywork … Tap this, tap that, check back after some time, pay real money to speed up the waiting… F that s! This game goes back to the way things used to be, when developers had respect for the player. Thanks for porting it, worth a buy!

So we’ve played this game for along time and well wen are we. Gonna get rct2 or the other RCT games for iOS?

Just like how we remembered! Can you guys make zoo tycoon too?

Amazing game. Almost better than the original. However, it Needs to be optimized for the we phone XR and newer, the new iPhones have soft rounded edges, which makes hitting buttons in the four corners very difficult, or impossible. Either that or allow the customer to move the safe zone. Other than that, thats our only downside to this game, absolutely love it!

We were 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 our 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! We play the game mostly on our iPad. Its 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.

Please can we have a refund we do not like this game.

We have loved this game since childhood and its awesome we have a mobile version of it to play wherever! All the things we remember are still there. We only wish the developers would make the icons a bit bigger in an update so that we dont accidentally tap the wrong ones constantly. Other than that, thank you for porting this to mobile.

Anyone who is unsatisfied with this is honestly a toxic human being, Its literally a perfect mobile copy of the original.

Pros: Classic game. No micropayments. Very smooth and great play Intuitive on touchscreen Cons: None we only wish they either had rct2 on here, or of they could somehow add the cash machine to this classic version. But app store has rct1, and rct3, but not rct2???

Exactly what it looks like, plenty of gaming nostalgia here. Would appreciate it if the devs could add 2018 iPad Pro support.

This game is a perfect demonstration of how to port a game to mobile. We only wish more people new that this game existed.

It is our favorite game on mobile. If your gonna get it do it. Its worth it. Its is exactly like the pc version. You can import parks and export parks too. BEST GAME EVER. Edit: the game deleted all our purchases and parks. Dont buy. Dont import things. We cant restore our purchases either. Please help!!!

This game is great we play it back in the old days they should add the others too zoo tycoon and sea world tycoon.

This needs a resolution update so it can full screen on the new iPads.

We have no idea why there would be anything less than 5 stars. This game was our whole childhood & it is identical to the original. The only difference is you cant charge a fee to get into the park. Its so so much fun & its definitely time consuming. THANK YOU FOR BLESSING US WITH THIS APP. Id like to see Zoo Tycoon in the near future. PLEASE FOR THE LOVE GOD MAKE A ZOO TYCOON FOR MOBILE. We LOVE THIS GAME SO MUCH. ID PAY DOUBLE FOR IT.

We just have a suggestion, we feel like a lot of people would like it if there was a mode where you could use any park scenario,(custom or original) and you can build anything for free. Create the greatest parks, have thousands of guests, and share it with your friends. And maybe even a leaderboard with the best parks.

We really love this game, these are the OG Tycoon games and the actual good ones before these idle tap games!!! Our only request is, if possible bring the old Zoo Tycoon game to mobile!!! We remember playing Roller Coaster Tycoon & Zoo Tycoon on our old computer after school Good Times.

Loved this game as a kid and am having a great time playing it on our phone now! PLEASE BRING RCTC2 to mobile as well!!!!!!

Please update for iphone x, we cant see the whole screen on our phone :-/

We like it more than the desktop version because we find it easier to place shops/stalls and rides at the height you want. Always had a hard time in the desktop version. Also the fast forward button is fantastic. Thanks for porting! :)

We got it and we were so excited. Our brother got it to and loved it. We both got 1 roller coaster and we could almost feel being on it.

Would love to see controller support for this game.

We have been in love with this game since we were younger we used to play it on PC, that being said we think some changes should be made. When it rains it should be clean all the Throw up off the footpaths. The scenarios should change we get the same objective with almost every level. Park guests at the end of year 3. Everything else is really awesome and is nostalgic to play!!

So far we like the game but we think it would be nice if 2 things could change in the game 1 would would be if you could slow down time so you can get the money to pay for your employees and to pay for the park every month. And 2 would be that it would also be nice if you could expand your park to put more rides in your park. Besides that it has been a good game we hope you take this review into consideration.

We love playing this game just as much as we did as a kid. Can we get the other Tycoon games for here next like Zoo Tycoon, Railroad Tycoon, etc? Our inner-child would be forever grateful.

We would love to see an upgrade to make a water park!!! Please!!!

We love this game. Thank you so much for continuing to update it! This is a great game and well worth it.

This game is definitely worth the money. We have played this, RCT3, RCT4, and RCT touch, all on the phone but we find this one to be easily the best. All the scenarios are really fun and we have also bought the ride/scenario editor expansion pack and it too was awesome. The loading times are much better than RCT3 on the phone. The only negative side to this game is that you can never stop playing this game. In conclusion we dont regret buying this game and it is worth the money for sure.

We love this game, just wish there was a cheat to unlock all the levels.
