RollerCoaster Tycoon Is Back, And Fans Aren’t Happy

RollerCoaster Tycoon Is Back, And Fans Aren’t Happy

Atari announced today that it plans to revive RollerCoaster Tycoon, a series of video games in which you invite people to a theme park and figure out how to properly murder them. But RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile, as it will be called, isn’t the proper PC game that fans might have expected.

Instead it will be on iOS in coming weeks for $2.99, and it looks a lot like FarmVille.

Rollercoaster Tycoon fans are not pleased.

RollerCoaster Tycoon Is Back, And Fans Aren’t Happy

That’s just a taste of the massive outpouring of negative reactions that hit the web today.

There’s a happy ending here though: Atari responded to the deluge of negativity by promising that yes, there’s a PC incarnation of RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 planned for later this year. Diehard fans can pretend that this mobile one doesn’t exist, and perhaps go nutty once again later this year, when we all discover that “PC experience” could mean “Facebook game”.
