Please make a bug fix update
This is a very good mobile Amusement Park game, I think it’s the best on the App Store currently. It has many rides and coasters, and it also has many terrain and path options. I mainly play sandbox mode, but there is also a pretty good career mode where you complete objectives to make the parks profitable. The main problem with RCT3 is that is hasn’t had an update for years. This means the rollercoasters and rides aren’t up to date with the new ones coming out, and there are a few minor bugs that don’t cause many issues for me. There is one main problem that is really annoying though, which is that when you have a saved sandbox mode park, and you want to create a new park, (frame rate tends to slow down a lot when you have more than 10-13 big roller coasters and then the the game starts saying the park is full and it stops you from adding any more rides or shops) the old one gets replaced. You can create a new park, and not delete the old one, and when you go back into the save menu, your new park duplicates it self over the old one. This means you can’t keep adding onto your parks and have to fully replace them every once in a while. It’s super annoying and is a bad glitch that happens on all the devices I’ve tried to play this on. I still really like the game, but PLEASE FIX THIS BUG!!!
TLDR: Best coaster game on the AppStore, but needs a bug fix so that old sandbox mode parks don’t delete themselves after creating a new park.
Park Full notifications
Great game but I haven’t been able to do anything in sandbox mode for my save due to this Building has been disabled notification that is constantly popping up and not allowing for any further customization and or building. Idk how to solve this issue and very little or almost nothing online about it. I didn’t think this game would be limited as so. As of now, the game has been ruined as there is no fix for this and I can’t figure out the cause to it. Closing out the application doesn’t resolve the issue nor does letting real time pass. I also don’t know why the additional add ons from the game aren’t available as in game purchases? 6 going on 7 years later. Would be nice to have a complete edition. (The Switch console just recently got one) But being able to build freely to your hearts content would also be nice. I Haven’t been able to for a long time now! Would be nice if the devs can offer some fix or explanation to this bug.
The Best Phone Game So Far!
I've had an iPhone since before the App Store was available, and I can finally say the quality of games has reached the PC quality mark. The dev of this game is the original developer, not Atari. It runs silky smooth even when moving your head around to view people eating cotton candy while zooming through a loop on a roller coaster.
The controls are amazingly thought out. You can have a simple roller coaster built in 20 minutes. It's all here - the tilt of the track, the height markers, block break speed, camera locations, tunnels, choosing how many cars per train, track color, path design- wait time for the cars, price of the ride, and fixing and repairing the ride. If I left something out, trust me, it's in the game.
The career mode is the full 20+ stages, and there is a sandbox mode as well. You control the price of each ride, each booth, or the entrance fee to your park. You control the cost of ketchup and when to train or fire your employees. Each guest has unique thoughts and desires so be sure to talk to each of them as well.
Simply put, unbelievable game. It plays excellent on the iPhone 6 and even better on the iPad's screen. A complete steal at $4.99. This has made me re-think phone games.
