Atari is Bringing Back Our Happy Childhood Memories with ‘Roller Coaster Tycoon Classic’

Roller Coaster Tycoon Classic

Atari has released a new set of Roller Coaster Tycoon apps for iOS and Android that bring back a lot of happy childhood memories.

Roller Coaster Tycoon Classic, the $5.99 game looks to be a near perfect copy of the original PC game that was first released in 1999. Seriously.

Atari previously released Roller Coaster Tycoon 4, a more modern free-to-play version of the game and it just wasn’t the same.

Atari is now correcting that with the new “classic” version of the game, which it created with Chris Sawyer, who created the first games in the 90’s. The new app brings back the original parks, rides and sound effects from both the Roller Coaster Tycoon and Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 PC games — in all their pixelated glory

Roller Coaster Tycoon Classic has 95 different parks you can unlock and play through, along with a couple expansion packs which are available via separate in-app purchases.

Gameplay is just like the original, with you taking control of managing a theme park by clearing land, building rides, hiring staff and working to keep guests happy and reach profit goals.
