Needs Updating!

I Love RCT, and I have loved the original game for well over two decades since I was a kid, I give the game a solid 5/5. However, This mobile port hasn’t been updated in 6 years according to the version history notes, and phones have changed drastically in those 6 years, there’s so many dialog boxes/menus I can’t close or return to in game because the iPhone 15 has the floating island at the top of the phone screen (where the front camera is) I figured I could just change my screen orientation by flipping it over, but that doesn’t completely mitigate the problem. A big example is custom building the coasters, you can’t move the build menu like you can on pc, so I have to constantly back out, or delete several track pieces to make adjustments because of the floating island on my phones screen. It makes building coasters super tedious even though in the pc version it’s super simple and intuitive to freely build, even for a game that’s over 20 years old. My phone screen also encapsulates the whole screen, there’s no black bars on top of or bottom to give me the perfect scare resolution this mobile version needs, my screen edges are rounded and menu boxes can get stuck behind the boundaries of my screen since the game isn’t optimized for newer phones. I really hope developers still check back here on occasion and see some of these reviews, I know I’m not the only person to mention this issue.

Great game, but..

I don’t leave many reviews, but something must be said. Don’t get me wrong, this game is amazing if you love tycoon style games. I have been a fan of it since it came out on PC (RCT3 is just okay. There is some kind of magic to be had in RCT, RCT2, and this one, essentially both combined.) You manage a park with finances, simply put. Game has multiple “scenarios” that require you to perform certain tasks in order to win - quite fun and interesting.
My biggest beef lately is that on the new curved iPhone screens, and especially the “null zone” near the top of the screen where the camera etc are are essentially ignored by the game. This makes selecting the “Adjust Land” option, the “Settings” option a repetitious endeavor, and spoiler: both of these are very useful and will be pressed FREQUENTLY...or at least, you will try to. The park info button in the top left is hard to press as well, but not used as frequently. Park map in top right is big enough that it is not an issue. But the other corners...and my eyes brightened when this just got a new update..!! But alas..these issues ignored.
Am I trying to deter you? Not at all. Great game, but unfortunately, probably more suited for anything less than the newest phone, or on an iPad, which to me kind of alienates a big group of players, myself included.
I will be waiting for the day I can complete the scenarios on my phone. Until that time, ride and scream, friends.

It's the old roller coaster tycoon on computer

It's exactly the same, and has the same scenarios where you play a pre-built park. Plus extra. The person complaining about not being able to charge for admission hasn't played through all the scenarios. There's levels where you can charge admission and not for rides etc... There is no free form park so that's different. Also if you did some research about etc you'd find the tricks. The quickest way make money in any scenario is an old cheat that was on the computer version and it works on the phone and iPad too. You make the park admission price free, then for every ride you set the admission price to the excitement rating. so test rides before opening so you can set the price. Oh and you always round down to the nearest 10, so if the ride has an excitement rating of 7.87 (roller coasters are higher) you can charge $7.80 for it. If you do that, guests always ride your rides and most think it's a good value. Then you have tons of people running out of cash. When your value is dropping make sure you assign handymen to sweep their own section rather then placing a bunch randomly. Then make sure the park loops around so people can find the exit after they've gone through everything. You can even set all the guests who are saying "I wanna go home" over by the exit and they will leave and the value goes up.
