Yes, I loved RCT! There is some EA game called Theme Park but I can tell its a freemium...reluctant to try it.

Yeah, i've tried Theme Park, but it isn't that fun, and isn't similar to RCT; you can't build your own rides(rollercoasters), The places where the rides have to be build are already specified and you can't control the terrain.

I would love to see RCT on the iPad, and would definitely pay for it!

I forgot about RCT! It would be great on the iPad, I'd definitely pay $10 for it.
I looked at Chris Sawyers website and it says to contact hasbro for RCT, but the link is broken.

Its possible!!!

so the maker of this game "chris sayer" made a port for one of his older games openTTD so what im thinking is i plan on teaming up with a group of developers and using that same port to link RCT with IOS plus with java ports on IOS its alot easier


what we would need:
- funding (unknown)
- the rights to RCT(atari own its)
- a IOS licence

any one interested contact me

And I think it still requires the GFX and sound files from the original, which would be a problem for an app store version.

By the way - is Locomotion an updated version of Transport Tycoon, or something?
Was only looking through the thread to see if anyone mentioned this gem of a game!

I still play it sometimes heh.

It would be awesome with online gaming capabilities, so you could go head-to-head against your friends with the ability to resume games when everyone is present.

OMG! I can't believe it but Atari announced they are bringing RCT to iOS! Hope it won't be as bad as RCT3 but still excited regardless.

It's extremely unlikely we'll ever see the first two RCT games released for iPad.

Most of the code for RCT and RCT2 was written in assembly for the x86 architecture. That's why there weren't any Mac versions released. You can get the classic games to run on Intel macs with Wine, but that's about it.

What is wrong with RCT3?

I was never that keen on rct2 but 3 got me hooked and I still play it occasionally even now.

I used to love these games as a kid. I hope they would do this. Its only common sense in a newly forming tablet world. My major concern though is that they only make it for Windows Tablets like the new surface....

Probably the fact that you could run rct2 on a pentium I/II but needed a way more powerful machine for rct3. I didn't mind rct3 but there was definitely a big difference in style and gameplay. I play both occasionally. The good thing is rct2 really didn't leave anything out from rct1.

Still waiting for this to happen. I've been playing RCT3 a lot lately and would love to play a RCT game on my mini!
