GDC 14: Roller Coaster Tycoon 4 Mobile Has Us Thrilled

Looking to fuel an adrenaline rush? No, not by playing Titanfall or some other shoot’em up game. Who needs those wimpy games when you can be playing something filled with real steel, bloodcurdling screams and delicious cotton candy? Roller Coaster Tycoon 4 Mobile comes to us on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch and gives us a blast of fun with some amazing new additions. We had a chance to sit down with Atari to check out the game at GDC.

Roller Coaster Tycoon 4 Mobile is the re-imagined next installment of the beloved simulation game and will allow players to create and share the greatest amusement parks with endless land to build upon. There are at least 50 attractions to build including new coasters and hotels for guests to stay at and of course classics like the Ferris Wheel, a real man’s ride, and ice cream.

Being on mobile devices allows the franchise to tap into social media like never before. There are leaderboards to compete with Facebook friends over excitement rating, track length and more. Daily goals, achievements and customization features are also included and connecting to Facebook allows you to request roller coaster parts from friends.

The game is coming to iOS devices very soon and this summer for Android. Isn’t this news giving you such a thrill?
