RollerCoaster Tycoon® Classic for Negative User Reviews

Not optimizedGame is good in general. But not optimized for iPhone 12 Pro Max. The screens super zoomed in so I can’t see what’s on the edges, the sound randomly stops working so I have to reset the app. I hope they fix this..Version: 1.1.9

Update neededCan you please update?!.Version: 1.1.9

Wonderful game, now having issuesGreat game! I was really enjoying it until it kept freezing on start up. As the “upload to iCloud” button was checked I thought it was safe to reinstall. I was wrong! Lost all of my progress and now quite annoyed. Tried to contact app support but the page won’t even open. Such a shame guys!.Version: 1.1.9

Glitches in game would like a refund...I’ve found a few glitches so far, such as sometimes if you place an object or a ride you can’t click on it to delete it. You also can’t change the fee for entering the park from free. And now have found that you sometimes can’t edit the price on a ride..Version: 1.1.9

Not suitable for iPhone XRenders things behind the notch. When text I put was requested, keyboard took up the entire screen and couldn’t see what text was input, nor exit the screen.Version: 1.1.9

Why does it look so bad on newer iPhones?I just upgraded to an iPhone 13 from an 8 and I played so much of this game over the years. Switching over, the UI is huge! I makes the game look way worse. It also seems so much more pixelated. Please I wish there was a way to make it more playable, I’ve literally bought this game four or five times now on different platforms and I thought it would be so much better with a higher resolution display..Version: 1.1.9

Can’t unpause game!!!I downloaded the game because it is my entire childhood in mobile form, but it won’t let me build anything or make any changes because it says the game is paused! How do I unpause it??.Version: 1.1.9

Not optimized for new iPhonesThe notch of the screen on iPhones makes the game very hard to play. Hides useful information..Version: 1.1.9

Love the game but has bugsLove the game and play for hours on end but some of the bugs have really effected the game play for me Guests will get stuck walking around in the same spot and get *lost* brining down my park rating. It has caused me to lose levels multiple times. Also, would be great if when you can’t reach the objective the game isn’t over completely..Version: 1.1.9

Buggy and no sandbox modeScenery tabs randomly disappeared. I couldn’t place anymore trees or statues. Also, I bought this for sandbox years ago and it doesn’t even have the mode!.Version: 1.1.9

A great nostalgic classic with a few missing featuresIf you're going to recreate a classic make sure you keep every feature. You can't charge admission to the park and any custom rides that are built cannot be modified to be elevated or lowered (they must remain on the ground)..Version: 1.1.9

It’s Great, just buggy on the iPhone X and iPhone 11I have an iPhone 11, and when playing, if I accidentally slide down into the control center or into a menu on my phone, the game mutes/pauses itself and when I unpause the game, there is no sound! This means that every time I accidentally slide into a menu on my phone, I have to restart the game if I want to play with sound. (Which I do.) I also wish that there was a way to make the user interface larger for those of us with bigger screens, and have it configured for iPhone X and 11 so that some of the buttons aren’t cut off. It is very difficult to press many of the buttons because of this issue, and the game is sometimes unplayable. I hope that these issues get fixed soon so that I can actually enjoy this game in all of its glory!.Version: 1.1.9

Update Needed due to Several Bugs• Guests have been caught line jumping, missing the rides completely! • Mechanics are stuck on fixing rides when entrance and exit stations are separated! • Staff have been caught wandering outside their patrol area, lollygaging infinitely! • Staff sometimes "wrong warp" outside of their patrol area, trapping them and preventing them from doing their jobs! This most commonly occurs from loaded save data, which can easily become corrupted because of these bugs! • Rides sometimes do not resume normal operation, resulting in consecutive breakdowns! • Park Value Plummets -$200,000+ in less than a week! • Also experienced issues explained by newmanix, CODYCORE, rock&rollruinedmylife, and Poot-Sin! • The Original RollerCoaster Tycoon Expansion Packs contain parks exclusive to that title, and should be brought back via in-app purchase! • The Original RollerCoaster Tycoon allowed you to freely choose the price of both park and ride admission! RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 limited you to either the park or rides must be FREE! The limitation from RCT2 should be dropped for this version, as some parks do charge for certain rides! Not dropping that limitation makes the entire game experience extremely unrealistic! • The six-seater style wooden coasters in real life have five cars per train! With an in-game limitation of four cars per train, this makes it impossible to re-create certain coasters!.Version: 1.1.7

Childhood memories are welcome but controls need workWhat can I say, it’s my favourite tycoon game that I loved and played as a kid, only on a much more accessible platform these days for me. Improvements need to be made on the controls though. Tap and drag for paths would be great. Easier way of putting scenery would be great too; you’d think with the putting the mobile version on there would be some kind of recoding in the way that works in order to alleviate some of the issues that the original game had with the isometric view. Still a pain to place scenery with a lot of building and then removing. The tap and hold for magnified view is great but would be good if that could extend to scenery placement..Version: 1.1.9

Needs update for iPhone XRThe game is hard to play on my iPhone XR as the interface is unaware of the rounded corners and notch which partially blocks some buttons and interface windows. I hope Atari fixes this as I have fond memories of this game from my childhood..Version: 1.1.9

DisappointedI recently bought RCT, I enjoyed the game when it first came out on PC, so I decided to get it on my iPhone XR. When I loaded into the game I couldn’t see all the buttons I was too zoomed in, hoping someone has a solution, or they fix it. Other than that it’s a great classic.Version: 1.1.9

No sound?I love this game so much and it’s so nostalgic for me and now my son loves it but there’s no sound and for that I’d have to give it 2 stars 😓.Version: 1.1.9

UnplayableUnplayable with too many ads..Version: 1.1.9

The haven’t updated in 4 years dont playWould be great to get some optimization on alot of things. Looks like the devs gave up on this app 4 years ago. DO NOT BUY!!.Version: 1.1.9

Just like the old days :)Loved that this game performs just like the computer version. Had to get used to not being able to set an entry fee for every park, but just making drinks/food etc. a bit higher allows for progress. My only issue is that it kept freezing one day I decided to go back to play after a long time and nothing would fixed it ... I couldn’t get into any parks for more than 5 seconds without it freezing up. I had to reinstall and then everything was GONE, including all the progress I had made and game saves. It is linked to my Game Center account but apparently that isn’t enough to retrieve everything lost. I will still play but I know there were a few levels (making rollercoasters specifically to a certain rating) that took me forever to pass. :( This is the only reason I am not giving 5 stars which it deserved before this happened. 👎🏼.Version: 1.1.9

Great Game But Badly Needs IPhone Xs/X UpdateGreat game, but for heavens sake can you update this for iPhone XS Max (and the other X iPhones)? It’s been several months since the new phone is out and over a year since the X came out, but this screen doesn’t line up and you literally can’t play because the controls aren't configured for the screen. For example, when I’m making a coaster it won’t let me move the creation box because the iPhone X screen doesn’t line up, so it gets stuck! Not fully playable on iPhone XS Max or X until they update it. Love this game and would give it five stars if they just took a little bit of time to update it for the newer iPhones. If you have one of those, don’t buy this until they update it - you will love looking at the game but you’ll get frustrated quick when you realize that because the developers haven’t updated the game, the simple controls can’t all be assessed..Version: 1.1.9

A ton of nostalgia, wish the aspect ratio was proper on the iPad Pro 11One of my favourite PC games growing up, brings back tons of nostalgia and is still equally as fun. I enjoy the campaign and the bonus content. Only complaint is the aspect ratio hasn’t been updated to work on the newer all-screen iPad Pro’s, will bump up two stars if every fixed (highly doubtful due to the last update being 2+ years ago)..Version: 1.1.9

HorribleIt’s horrible. I can’t even get it to open.Version: 1.1.9

Falls short of RCT2 - no custom scenarioI remember playing RCT2 for thousands of hours as a kid (and immature adult) and one of the greatest attributes of the game was the ability to set up your own scenario. It gave you the ability to start on your own terms, including giving yourself a bit of a head start with the terrain, bankroll and how much land you own at the outset. This meant you were able to continue long after the initial scenario had been completed and genuinely run your theme park and max out all of the land and ride potential. Whilst I have taken a trip down memory lane with RCT classic, I am disappointed the custom scenario option is not designed in as it was for RCT2. If the app developers do read the reviews, please, please, please can you include a custom scenario for all of us ‘in for the long haul’ Tycoons..Version: 1.1.9

Great but...The game is great and brings back fond memories. However, there is a catch.. There’s no sandbox mode included, only scenarios and there is no option to pause the game whilst your building your coasters. This basically means you’ll fail every scenario as you’ll spend the whole time designing your rides without being able to pause. They’ve conveniently added an in app purchase for a ‘toolkit’ which is an additional £5.99 which lets you design rides in a sandbox mode. Good game, but a bit misleading...Version: 1.1.9

Needs urgent fixingI was delighted to be able to play this again and on my iPad, having grown up with this game being an all-time favourite. There is a bug, however, that needs fixing urgently. I’ve seen reviewers complaining of it over a year ago and in April 2020 the problem of deleting/demolishing a ride and not all of the ride disappearing is still there. It hasn’t been fixed and has made the game frustrating and over-priced for one that does not work as it should. Please fix and my review will improve - before this happened, I was in RCT heaven..Version: 1.1.9

Don’t buy if you have an iPhone X or laterGreat game, originally bought this when I had an iPhone 8, loved it. However when I upgraded my phone I realised the app display doesn’t take into account that I’m playing on an 11 and parts of the screen are cut off. Considering that the X and 11 model types of phone have been out now for a couple years and this hasn’t been updated, it doesn’t seem like this is something that is a priority for the developers to fix..Version: 1.1.9

Love the game, but poorly optimizedAbsolutely love this game but it’s poorly optimized on the iPhone 13 pro. A lot of stuff is cut off with the notch and things in general don’t appear to be thought out well. Also whenever checking notifications or doing anything else on your phone the sound will randomly cut and you have to close & reopen the game. I hope this gets fixed..Version: 1.1.9

Please update for iPhone X!Menus get cutoff, text entry is completely missing. Safe to say, it doesn’t work well on the iPhone X. Loved the app on my iPhone 7 Plus though. Please update it!.Version: 1.1.9

A little frustratingI realize this game is a big piece of nostalgia for many people leaving reviews. I’m sure that eventually once I painstakingly figure out how to do anything I’ll like it too. However for first time players, this game would have greatly benefitted by having an actual tutorial built in to step-by-step guide you through the process of building and managing a basic park scenario. Instead of restarting a park over and over to try and figure the process out, I bought the toolkit thinking i’d just be able to jump into an easy sandbox mode to fiddle with until I get the basics. Nope. Still confusing. It should be clear in the product description that there is no tutorial. Again, I get that many people have played loved and enjoyed this game for years and I would love to do the same, but without any real tutorial help to get me started besides some EXTREMELY BASIC “tips” I am disappointed. I was hoping to be able to jump in and have some fun right away instead of searching for internet tutorials to help me know what to do..Version: 1.1.9

GoodThe game itself seems to be fully intact and is playable. Good fun and lots of nostalgia. The controls could use further work, however (making paths should be somehow click and drag, the "category" tabs in ride build menus should be able to be pressed, and deselected by sliding your finger without releasing, some smaller buttons need further enlargements etc) Also, it'd be nice if music playback was enabled when you turned off the in game music in the options tab - when levels take 30+ minutes to complete, it's nice to play your own stuff in the background..Version: 1.0.1

Warning - not compatible with new iOS 14/iPhone 12I just purchased this game on my iPhone , I had played it previously on a friends phone and it worked great. However it seems the game has not been correctly optimised either for the new iOS or perhaps not with iPhone 12. The ride and construction boxes open on the screen partially off the screen. And the toolbar and close window option are not visible. Have tried contacting Atari on their website but haven’t received a response..Version: 1.1.9

Latest update (December 2017) caused bugs still not fixed.In the December 2017 update, graphics on iPad Pro have been rendered unplayable. Atari have been contacted on numerous occasions and reply with a fix is being worked on. It’s now July, and their latest reply is still that there is no timeframe on the fix. Great game, purchased all in-app purchases, but now is unplayable due to the graphics issues. 11 months on, Atari support are not responsive on this issue. Absolutely disgusting treatment of their customers..Version: 1.1.9

No extra roller coaster laps!I would give a higher rating if you could make roller coaster have multiple laps!!!.Version: 1.1.9

Love it but has some bugsLove this game paid for it now it won’t load my park it keeps freezing when almost loaded . So frustrating!!!.Version: 1.1.9

Frustrating to Play!This game is fun for a couple of hours but after that, the flaws are so frustrating, its difficult to play. Firstly, you can’t fully rotate around the map, you have to use directional keys at the top right of the screen that move you 90 degrees - this is annoying when you’re trying to build queues or footpaths and you can’t see where you’re supposed to be building. Secondly, some of the prefab coasters have ride entrances and exits in ridiculous places, so the track covers the entrance meaning you cannot build a queue. I enjoy the authenticity but this has made the game unplayable. I only got to the second park and then gave up because I was getting so annoyed I was wasting my money on rides I couldn’t open because it was impossible to build a queue. Also, if you delete a coaster that has scenery, you can’t delete all this scenery with it. You can’t interact with it in any way but you can’t build over it either. I’m really sad because I wanted this game to take me back to childhood but all its done is raise my blood pressure!.Version: 1.1.9

Love it.But please fix the Three Monkeys park, it will not provide the food stalls until year 3-4 which forces you to fail due to complaints. Thankyou much..Version: 1.1.9

Admission FeePlease fix it so that we can charge for admission/entry fee. If you set to "free" you are unable to charge for it.. the original game allowed you to change this, I was hoping this new update would fix this problem, Please fix!.Version: 1.1.7

Good but...I love that the game is an app, however I downloaded the steam version before this for the iMac and it functions way better. Please consider updating to be exactly like the steam version. It has better aspecet ratio (could be a monitor thing), easier scrolling and zooming. Having trouble zooming in and out with this version. Some of the menus you need to hold to drag where as the steam version you can just scroll with your finger. Some of the menu layouts are odd compared to the steam version as well..Version: 1.1.9

Amazing game but buggyI am a huge fan of the RCT series and have played for years on my PC, so pleased to finally be able to play on the go! For months it has been amazing but as of recent the game keeps crashing and won’t even let me play for more that 30 seconds, please fix!! Update; game crashes appear to have been fixed however this game needs optimisation for the iPhone XR as the screen is cropped out and makes gameplay challenging..Version: 1.1.9

Display does not work anymore, blurryOh I miss the old rollercoaster tycoon classic. I even miss the old rollercoaster tycoon classic for iPhone. Since updating to iPhone 12 I’ve been unable to play this and found articles where other people are having the same problem with no fix. Literally cannot make out a single ride unless zoomed in, zoomed out blurs all the pixels. Tried playing regardless but got a migraine after a minute. Heart broken. Do not recommend unless you have a small iPhone 8 or older, not worth purchasing (play your old one on your windows 98).Version: 1.1.9

Love it but screen optimisation for iPhone X is badI love this game, it is exactly the same as the roller coaster tycoon games for PC and now I can play it anywhere. I have had no issues and the game runs very smooth except for the screen optimisation for iPhone X. In certain places, text is cut off and menus sometimes glitch and you are unable to quit them. Also when naming a ride the text box is completely cut off. Please fix these issues and I can give it the rating it deserves..Version: 1.1.9

Ok, Needs update for new gen iPhoneSeems like a good game. Still trying to figure out the in’s and out’s of this game but definitely needs an update for the new iPhone display….Version: 1.1.9

Needs iPhone X UpdateBeen playing this for a long while and have loved it! Upgraded to iPhone 10 and the game is now a complete headache to play. The resolution is completely out causing menus and things to go beyond the screen making some tabs unusable. From a game I highly recommended to now a game to avoid if you have an iPhone 10. Until Atari updates this, it’s useless..Version: 1.1.9

IAPs won’t activateI paid for the first expansion plus the build kit and they will not activate. Apple has processed the purchase, but the app says purchased failed. Can’t use them at all, requesting a refund. What a shame..Version: 1.1.9

Better mouse supportWith the introduction of iPads supporting mouse as an input device, it works well however it does have a quirk which I think would be an easy fix. When the mouse cursor hits any edge of the screen, it either auto pauses, cuts the audio or both. The current workaround is to return to the home screen and reopen then it is good to go til you hit the edge. As you can imagine this happens a lot. Please have a look into this as a lot of your users, especially those that grew up with this game will love the mouse support albeit this annoying bug.Version: 1.1.9

I pay for this gamesI pay for this game the least you can do it have sand box !.Version: 1.1.9

Time for an updateGreat game, great app, time for an update..Version: 1.1.9
