It was in 1999 that the first game RollerCoaster Tycoon appeared. This is a simulation video game of managing amusement parks from a to z . An exciting game that wants innovative and differentiates from its competitors by including unparalleled realism.
It will be enriched by 2 extensions: ” Added Attractions ” and ” Loopy landscapes ” .
However, this first album is far to be perfect . It lacks a “sandbox” mode and speed control . I also remember , it was sometimes a hassle to install attraction , it was necessary that there were no obstacles.

In 2002, released the second album RollerCoaster Tycoon ( increasingly talking about RCT ) . The player can now take real theme parks reconstructions . This is also a huge success. It’s got, indeed, a scenario editor and finally a “sandbox” mode , there is also the possibility to stack the sets .
There will be also 2 extensions: ” Wacky worlds ” that allows  themes of the 5 continents and thematize attractions and “Time Twister ” whose themes are the six ages of history.

With the release of RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 in 2004, this game takes on a whole new dimension.
It now has a 3D engine , you can create , modify and manage the parks so there are no longer limits playability. We also have the ability to customize some elements and the greatest innovation with this 3D engine is obviously the possibility of testing its attractions as if you were there . Still a novelty compared to the two previous games is the ability to add their own mp3.
Always faithful , both extensions will be part : “Soaked! ” using the theme of water and ” Wild! ” for creating zoos in amusement parks.

From 2005 to now

2005 ( date on which the extensions are RCT3 outputs ) until 2012 , nothing … nada … While we all expected the next RollerCoaster Tycoon , we will be only satisfied with RollerCoaster Tycoon 3D which comes out on Nintendo 3DS. Then we will wait until 2014 to see our famous RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 out on mobile platforms . It is in 2015 that was finally planned the in PC version release…
