Customer Reviews

Everything we've asked for for years!

We've had a slew of newer RCT games for years now, most of them disappointments, while most series' fans begged for more of the classics. While RCT Classic isn't exactly "more", it's a chance to play the old favorites anywhere you want, even better than you remember them.

Everything is here, apart from a few minor misses (which I believe have all been fixed in the current update), and the RCT 1 scenarios in particular are improved with the new features originally added in RCT 2. The interface is well redesigned and works just as well on a touchscreen as it ever did with a mouse and keyboard. The price is impossible to argue with, and the only IAPs are full sized expansion packs for a couple dollars each, and, the only questionable one, a 5.99 ride and scenario editor. The cost on that seems a bit high compared to the rest of the content, but it's by no means necessary.

No RCT fan could go wrong, or be disappointed, with this.

I've waited forever and... FINALLY

First the negative: still cannot change the park entrance fee. It is stuck on free. This really makes the game drag out a lot longer waiting for funds to build up. I will change my stars for this app after it is fixed.

Positive: I love this game! I played RCT since the beginning when make a wish bought it for me along with my first computer back In 1998. This game for the iPhone is even better with more pre-built coasters and easy controls. They did a tremendous job making this flow perfectly for the phone. I play on an iPhone 6 plus so having a bigger screen is killer! Thanks Atari and thanks Tom Sawyer! So happy to have a great game to play without a bunch of dumb in app purchases. This game was more about the fans and bringing happiness than just making a bunch of money for themselves.

Ps: this is the only app I've ever written a review for. Figured I've waited years for this moment, Midas well share my thoughts!

Absolutely phenomenal

I was a skeptic that they could turn this phenomenal game into a successful app. Not only have they delivered but it is more fun and addicting than ever before. As a major childhood fan who was able to live through the original release and follow the series through the ages I have never not had this game available to me always. Now that it is in the palm of my hand and my pocket I find myself having the time of my life. For the love of god it's not another give us all of your money, here is a few coins.. feel special... it is a full version of an incredible game that has countless hours of entertainment... I'm about 60 hours in and not stopping! I am reliving some extremely happy moments from my childhood and would like to thank the designers for making this a reality!! 😄😄👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👍🏻👍🏻👌🏻
