    Atari has released RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic on iPhone and iPad, combining the best features of the popular PC and Xbox titles RollerCoaster Tycoon (1999) and RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 (2002) to create "a new RCT experience" for long-time fans.

    The game includes hundreds of pre-made designs and classic building tools for bespoke coaster construction, a fully featured park designer and park management tools, 95 classic park scenarios from the two games, and the original graphics, park music and sound effects.

    RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic costs $5.99 and is available on the App Store for iPad and iPhone, with the expansion packs Wacky Worlds, Time Twister and Toolkit available as in-app purchases. [Direct Link]

    Took them this long? Now bring it on Mac App Store with iCloud sync so I could be consumed again.

    Wow. I used to love this game! Definitely going to buy it! The young kids may not like this because of the graphics but this is exactly how it look back in '99.

    Theme Park was so much better! The original. There would be sick everywhere and the cleaners would be on a fag break or stuck in a loop walking in circles!

    The engineers would all sit and eat their lunch whilst the rides were burning down and people were screaming!!

    I wish they would bring this game back!

    If you wanna play a similar game, but updated for 2016. Download Planet Coaster. Same creators who left Atari and made another studio. it is incredible.

    I always liked a lot of the older games. I was always hoping for a recent port of Sim Tower for the Mac and iOS.

    That game was so addicting. I know there is a Sim Tower knock off on the app store, but it is ruined with the IAP.

    Aaaand the magic is ruined a little bit. The game is $5.99, which I'm pefectly ok with.

    Wacky Worlds and Time Twister are $1.99 each (...ok.....) but the editor toolkit is another $5.99!! What?! Nope. You can't charge the same price as the full game for an expansion pack. Not cool with that.

    How is this different from Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 (from Frontier Development) that has been available on the app store for a few years?

    I may have to make a resurrection of the Roller Coaster of Death with the open ended jump into the concession stand.

    Games like this need upgraded graphics or its a non starter.

    Aaah, the old good times. Getting this for sure! Now only Microsoft has to release Age of Empires 2!

    That iAP-crap "Castle Siege" version is a shame to the originals.
