But don't worry - Atari assures diehard fans that a 'PC experience' is due for release later this year, too.
Atari has announced that it will be reviving the well-recognised RollerCoaster Tycoon series this spring on mobile platforms - and fan backlash has forced the publisher to admit that this mobile version will be followed by a more traditional "PC experience" later in the year.According to the press release, RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile offers 20 pre-designed roller coasters alongside some unspecified new attractions and features.
It will also contain social integration, leaderboards, and achievements to provide a "truly engaging experience" - something which has upset fans, who worry that the inclusion of these social features also means the presence of in-game transactions. Indeed, the green buttons next to the currency indicators in the above screenshot suggest that there'll be other ways of earning in-game money than simply overcharging visitors entrance to your rides.
Atari has already assured fans that a new PC version is on the way, too. "There is a PC experience in production now for release this year," it said, responding to fans on Twitter, though it seems we'll have to wait awhile before we learn more details about either version.
RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile is being developed by On5, and will be coming to iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch for $3. It's suggested that players sign up on the RollerCoaster Tycoon website for updates and "free bonus in-game gifts."
