Rollercoaster Tycoon Touch is a game that puts you in charge of your very own theme park. In this game, you’ll have to build fun rides, decorate your park and earn revenues through stores and food joints. The game includes a huge variety of roller coasters that you can unlock and install in your park.
To build anything, you will need the required cards for it. You can acquire these cards by playing the game and completing its quests. You can also purchase these card packs through tickets in the match. Once you have the required card, you can buy the item and place it anywhere in your park. Buildings can also be upgraded through resources in the game.
Tips and tricks in the game
- Do not upgrade too much early on.
The first time you start the game, you will get a lot of duplicate cards from the freebie card packs you get from the tutorial missions. While it might be tempting to spend the coins to upgrade them, it costs a lot to do so. If you upgrade too much early on you are going to find yourself with no coins waiting for your shops and rides to generate revenue. Be careful! It’s better to build more shops and rides before upgrading your existing ones. Your overall net profit will be much better this way.
- Check your buildings frequently.
Your shops and rides will generate coins over time as peeps come and go. Each building has its cap, so you’ll need to keep a close eye on them to make sure they don’t cap out. If you see a bubble with coins above a building, you can tap on it at any time to collect the coins. Once you see it become a safe red icon, the building is full on coins and won’t generate anymore until you empty it. You are going to have coin problems early on even with careful spending, so you’ll need to check your buildings frequently.
- Raise your prices.
If you tap on the red tag with the $ on it, you can adjust prices for that building. By default, some of your buildings’ prices will be cheap. The worst offender will be the entrance park tickets. When we started our park, this was set very low in the “Very Cheap” category.. Do not increase your rates past “Good Value” as your customers will start to think your park is too expensive.
- Listen to feedback.
As you are deciding on what next to build, take a moment to consider your peeps’ opinions. You can tap on the smiley face at the top for a general overview of how you’re doing in the main three stats: fun, food, and hygiene. To get a closer examination, you will need to watch out for peep thoughts. Sometimes a peep will gain a thought bubble over their head with a red or blue icon inside. Blue icons mean that they had a positive experience while red means bad. Look at the red thoughts as they’ll tell you exactly where you should be improving. It’s especially important to keep an eye out for the red angry faces, as that peep was so displeased with something they’re leaving your park altogether!
- Refresh the park.
Here’s a small technical tip! The game sometimes doesn’t refresh automatically on its own, so you’ll need to wake the game up. If you do not see any coins above your buildings and you know it’s been a while, try putting down a path somewhere. The game will resync and refresh with the servers, at which point you should see the bubbles come up.
- Complete the earliest mission.
The missions you receive after you complete the tutorial vary regarding objectives. Do note that each mission is timed and if not completed will vanish. Try to do the ones that have the shortest timers first before you tackle the ones with the long expiration times.
It’s fun to mess around in and is a very good time waster, so if that’s your style of play, then you’ll love this game. It is the ability to build how you want and keep you busy is not bad for an iOS game.
