Brought to us by Atari, RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic has just been released on to the Android Platform. This game is somewhat unique, in that it is a bit of a mashup of between the first two RollerCoaster Tycoon games from the franchise, that were originally released in ’99 and ’02 respectively.
We don’t get to talk about Atari too much these days, at least in regards to mobile gaming. However today marks an exception to that rule as the company has globally launched a new sim-style game called Pridefest, which is themed around celebrating equality with the LGBTQ community.
RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile is now available on Android devices, turning the classic PC franchise into a free-to-play mobile game. Just like the original, roller coaster designing is still at the forefront of the game, but 20 pre-designed tracks have been included.
The venerable video gaming staple, Atari has seemingly been around since the beginning for some of us. Yet to newer generations of current gaming youth, the company is seldom mentioned. The once giant stalwart of the gaming industry is talked of in the current gaming era as if it were some long forgotten, buried city or a mythical island lost to the sea.
Playing Pitfall, the 30th anniversary remake of the early Atari favorite (I can still hear that music that plays when you successfully jump over a pit of crocodiles) made me actually smile. So many of the games I have recently reviewed for this site have forgotten to be simple and fun.
Atari today announced their upcoming line-up of mobile games for a variety of platforms, and by variety we mean iOS and Android. Out of the five titles announced, two of them will indeed be heading our way soon. Roller Coaster Tycoon and Dungeons & Dragons: Warbands are both slated for release onto Android but don’t get excited just yet as both of these games won’t make it onto our platform until next year.
This may seem like a strange title and a strange article overall but because Android devices can easily play HTML5 games, we are reporting on it. Thanks to Atari teaming up with Microsoft, we now have a selection of classic Atari games that we can play through their new games portal on our Android devices.
Atari has officially released their second game onto the Google Play store today. Technically it could be considered their first since their initial release is actually their Greatest Hits arcade platform. Either way, if you were a fan of Centipede back in the arcade days then you’ll be wanting to check out Atari’s new release called Centipede: Origins.
Not too long ago Atari released their ‘Greatest Hits’ game package on iOS and at that time there was no mention that this would make it’s way over to Android. Well apparently Atari didn’t want to leave Android out of the retro gaming fun and have released the same package, called Atari’s Greatest Hits, onto the Android Market.
