Thank you Atari for sending us this game to review!

RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures is an interesting game about designing your own amusement park and trying to keep it stable and fun for the people who visit it (this game calls them peeps). You will have to work on the finances of the park and make sure that everyone finds what they are looking for.

This game is fun, and it plays pretty well. Basically how it works is that you have to build a park by placing things down to make the park fun for the peeps that come over. You can design your own coasters, or just place in a premade one. There are also rides, like a nice little ferris wheel or a merry-go-round. You also need to build services, like ride maintenance centers and bathrooms. You also got to give the peeps some food, like burger stands or themed restaraunts. You also have to decorate your park and make it more attractive. Another thing you have to do is price everything that you have in your park. If your price is too high, then peeps will stop coming. If your price is too low, then you will get a lot of peeps but you won't make that much money. The goal is to make a lot of money, and make peeps happy. Peeps will complain about a lot of things, like if a ride is broken, or if there are no janitors and the place is too dirty. This game does have some bugs. For example, if you are designing a coaster and you exit the building screen, the ground still looks like the building screen, but you can't go back to finish your coaster.

RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures
Highlights:

Strong Points: Funny people, or as the game calls them, “peeps;” multiple modes to choose from.
Weak Points: Long loading screens, some bugs, no multi-player.
Moral Warnings: None!

You should always keep the peeps happy. If you don't, then they leave the park. It does tell you that happy peeps stay longer. The things that make the peeps unhappy are usually if rides are too crowded, too pricey, or if the park is missing something. You should make sure you have all four utilities (bathroom, info center, janitor, ride maintenance) in every area so they are easily accessible to the peeps.

To me, this game was fun to design roller coasters and make peeps happy. I also liked how some peeps were really funny. Other than those, There were a couple of things that I did not like too much. There were extremely long loading screens and a couple bugs with what the peeps say. A peep would be right next to a bathroom and complain that there are no bathrooms! It is pretty annoying when this happens.

There is only story in the Adventure game mode. Basically what the story is is that someone sells you some property for a very cheap price and tells you that it was a park and that you should bring it back even better. But Bernard, the failed park's financial adviser, will have to assist you because he's the only experienced person you know. But lucky for you, he also comes cheap.

This game has pretty calm music. It does not need very intense music, so the music is fitting. If you view what peeps are thinking, it plays a sound. If it is a happy kid, it might play a kid saying “Yay!” and if it is an angry adult, it might play an upset grunt.

There is very simple controls to this game. You just click, drag, and use a couple other keys to operate your park. I played the PC version, so I do not know what the Switch version is like.

There are 3 modes you can play. There are Scenarios, Adventure, and Sandbox. In Scenarios, you have to choose a scenario and it takes you to the park in that one. In Adventure, you have to build your own park from scratch, but there are certain things that happen and choices you have to make. One of these choices I encountered was about the food. Some of the food was not looking too good, and you had to choose if you wanted to keep what you think is good and throw away the rest, or you could throw away all of it and just get new food. You should learn from my mistake, and throw away the food! Sandbox mode is when you have a completely empty park and have to build it and make peeps happy. But you have to choose if you will have to earn money and buy coasters and rides or start with everything and unlimited money and just build for fun.

This game is a game for all ages, so there is not anything to be concerned about morally.

RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures was very fun to play, and I enjoyed it. I think anyone who likes rollercoasters and/or theme parks would enjoy this game.
