    Re: Roller Coaster Tycoon 4 - for Apple Devices Only

    Give it a few weeks and it will be on android as well me thinks. I'll probably get it I'd that happens, even though but looks awful. Might have my sister get it for her kids since they love playing 3.

    Thought I'd finally have to get an apple product. Then I saw the video. Nope.

    It looks just like RCT2! Won't bother with this, wonder what excessive price they're charging/going to charge.

    BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    What the hell is that :emoji_zipper_mouth:?! That is so god awful terrible that it honestly should not have the RCT moniker attatched to it in any manner.

    Its so bad it is laughable.

    "You have just built 'Old game redesigned as a cash cow 1' "

    "In game credits are too expensive"

    "I don't want to go on 'Facebook to post to get me the materials I need to build a rollercoaster 1'"

    "The queue for 'next free move' is too long"

    "'Free to play model' has broken down"

    Oh, I could go on... :lol:

    Very disappointing. If RCT4 comes out on PC, it had better be better than this. Until then, I'll stick with RCT3 and NoLimits.

    I love this... Going back over things written about RCT4.

    August 2011:
    I wrote this in December 2011:
    Sadly, I seemed to have foresight on that one - replace consoles with free-2-play mobile devices mind...

    Obviously this is CALLED RCT4, but it's not RCT, let's face it - so little to zero chance was right...

    October 2012 about Frontier's "Coaster Crazy" Game everyone was so excited about at the time:

    Re: Roller Coaster Tycoon 4 - for Apple Devices Only

    I can only apologise for my industry. Still, I'll give it a whirl to see how much I can handle.

    EDIT: I have no idea what I was even trying to say here before.

    Re: Roller Coaster Tycoon 4 - for Apple Devices Only

    According to the official RCT facebook page there is a PC version in the works too, thank god! Apparently the mobile version will come out first with the PC RCT coming out at the end of this year. Here's hoping it's not just a port, what with No Limits 2 they really need to up their game for this one.

    Re: Roller Coaster Tycoon 4 - for Apple Devices Only

    You can't apologise enough :p

    As I've been on the money so much with this so far ,I'm going to bravely go out on a limb and say that the PC version WILL just be a port of this one.

    Or if we're really lucky, a Facebook version!!! ;)

    Theme Park Media have tweeted that RCT 4 is in development but it isn't just for mobile devices. I'll tag the tweet in here later.

    Re: Roller Coaster Tycoon 4 - for Apple Devices Only

    This is what happens when a video game company doesn't think there's a big enough audience for Theme Park management. They compromise and attract a different demographic. This could work or fail horrifically. It has a greater chance to fail. Especially since THRILLVILLE was the last "RCT" game made by Atari.

    Oh and a "PC Experience" will be released in Autumn 2014.

    At least the RCT3 community is still active (perhaps not on these forums, but elsewhere) and Theme Park Studio is coming along nicely.

    And RCT2 still exists (I think someone has made a Wingrider for RCt2)

    More details in an interview here:
    http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/gaming/news ... -game.html

    Key points:

    Make of all of that what you will. The fact the PC game is coming so hot on the heels of the mobile game suggests to me that it's not going to be a great game. To be honest, I suspect that it will be RCT2 remade with 3D graphics - like almost literally. The mobile version is then a touch screen friendly casual version.

    We'll have to wait and see... Hopes are not high.

    So with the release of the game on IOS it appears that Atari have somehow made the gaming equivalent of Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull but worse.

    On top of that the CEO of Atari just game out in defense of the game and sounds like a complete arse

    I need more desktop access to address this properly and I agree the game us a travesty but...

    It's just mobile gaming. It's no different to hundreds of other popular pay to build games it there. It runs on a model which is only broken for people who don't engage in the model. Apparently the period of user investment vanishes after three days, do the publisher only need to produce a game that can be exhausted in that time as afterwards the model SP's working anyway. They're cash cow, plain and simple.

    The issue is that it's using something some people care about, but people also care about lots of things the gaming industry is ruining with this model. It's an issue with the mobile industry and not Atari as such - they're just treating the public like the mugs they are.

    In the bigger picture, don't blame Atari for making a quick buck, but the idiots who spend money on these games.

    This week make money because despite the warnings, I'll bet loads of enthusiasts will still buy this. The PC game will be identical but higher res and will be so because so many people will by into the mobile version giving it justification.

    People are stupid and there will always be business there to take their money :(
