Published On February 24, 2017 | By Kirk Hiner | iPhone/iPad

To avoid confusion, note that this is not RollerCoaster Tycoon ClassicRollerCoaster Tycoon 3, or RollerCoaster Tycoon 4, all of which are available for touchscreen devices. This is RollerCoaster Tycoon Touch, the newest disconnected title in the RollerCoaster Tycoon franchise.

How does RollerCoaster Tycoon Touch differentiate itself from its predecessors? I’m not sure. Not to sound like an elitist, but I live a morning’s drive away from Cedar Point. And when you’re that close to the greatest roller coaster amusement park in the world, you tend to not bother with virtual simulations. It’s the same reason I never played Cooking Mama when I worked at Perkins (well, that and about 25 years of separation).

Anyway, with RollerCoaster Tycoon Touch, players can”… design, customize and share their greatest park creations in full 3D with friends from around the world.”

In searchable textual format:

Creating, building, managing and sharing imaginative parks in beautiful 3D graphics has never been this fun or easy. In RollerCoaster Tycoon Touch, players can open card packs full of coasters, rides, decorations and more to build out dream parks. Complete missions and acquire more cards to upgrade buildings, keeping peeps happy and making more money to grow your park! An innovative, touch-control coaster creator allows players to effortlessly draw coasters, and combined with intuitive pathing and building placement gives players the freedom to express their creativity.

Further explanation in handy bullet-point format:
