People who were gaming during the late 1990s may well have fond memories of the long-dormant franchise RollerCoaster Tycoon franchise.

A series of construction and management sims that let you build and run your own theme park, developers Atari recently announced that they are creating a mobile version of the game called RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile, which is set to debut on iOS very soon.

Other than the above brief trailer there’s not a whole lot to go on so far, but Atari has mentioned that the game will feature 20 pre-designed roller coasters and other rides, and will also allow you to invite friends to visit your park, in addition to exchanging coaster blueprints with the online community.

While all looks good from the trailer, hopefully Atari doesn’t ruin a potentially classic game by bogging it down with IAPs. Sadly, at a $2.99 price point, that may be exactly the case.

RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile is set for an “early spring” release, and we’ll bring you more details (and a review) once the game arrives in App Stores.

    This would be the best iOS game to come, used to love these so much as a kid!

      Totally with you. I just hope it’s not bogged down with IAP, “wait 24 hours for building, or buy three gems to do it instantly” type stuff. Done well, this would be perfect!

    I loved this game on PC soooooo much. I am really hoping it turns out well.

    Oh come on, IOS only? They should at least have a version specifically made for OS X.
