parkAttention all thrill ride seekers and amusement park enthusiasts, Atari and On5 Games have just announced that the popular RollerCoaster Tycoon® series will be making its iOS debut this Spring.

Create and share the coolest amusement park of your dreams and construct incredible roller coasters to keep your visitors excited. Build the best park, unlock new materials, and exchange roller coaster blueprints with friends to become the ultimate RollerCoaster Tycoon®!

RollerCoaster Tycoon® 4 Mobile™ will offer players 20 pre-designed coasters and a number of new attractions that should appeal to both new and returning fans of the series to construct their own theme parks right on their mobile devices. “With Facebook and Game Center support, people can also invite and visit their friend’s parks and exchange roller coaster blueprints.”

attractions“We are thrilled to bring RollerCoaster Tycoon® 4 Mobile™ to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch for the first time and allow players to experience the game in a new channel,” said Fred Chesnais, Chief Executive Officer, Atari, Inc. “RollerCoaster Tycoon® 4 Mobile™ is a modern-age simulator with robust strategy gameplay and will also contain social features, leaderboards and achievements to provide a truly engaging experience.”

The app will launch at a price of $2.99, but (as can be see in the screenshots) will contain a good deal of “optional” IAP.
Not really a combination I like to hear, but I’m trying to keep an open mind until we get our hands on this one in the Spring.
