Needs Work but Still Enjoyable

Great game but has a lot of bugs. Still one of the best gaming apps I've found, even with the flaws. It's worth the money anyway.

Placing paths with varying heights can be maddening. Placing benches/trash cans etc. doesn't always work when it should. Needs the ability to find which staff member is working highlighted area without looking through all of them. Needs a fast forward button. Needs an undo button when doing construction on paths, terrain, etc. Research doesn't work half the time and when it does, it doesn't give what you asked for. It seems that changing the amount of funding for research doesn't have an affect on how much is discovered, either. Profit doesn't add up right. Some of the buttons don't function at all. Needs to let you select an attraction straight from the news alert about it. Needs a button to select and move large groups of people (when you're taking out a path) so that you don't have to move them one by one.

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.

In rollercoaster tycoon 3 you can play 2 ways. You can play the campaign mode or you can play the sandbox mode. In the sandbox mode you have infinite money but in the campaign mode you have a limited amount of money. I usually find myself playing sandbox mode creating new worlds and trying each theme park better than the other parks. Another thing I love about this game is you can ride your rides and buy or build your rollercoasters. If you build a rollercoaster you can do many things if you get bored with the other rides. I like that it tells you if people want to go on the rollercoaster and how it tells you the max speed of the rollercoaster. I also love you can open and close your park. You also need to put food stands drink stands infamy’s and bathrooms. I really love how you can put in ride events. You can put in props and you can even change the color of your rides. Also if you think your chain lift is going to slow on your rollercoaster you can always make the chain lift go faster or slower. Overall this game is worth the money so I think you should get this game.
