Coaster Crazy (By Frontier Developments)

Tuesday 18 th September 2012. Cambridge, UK, based Frontier Developments Ltd. (‘Frontier’) today announced a brand new free-to-play 3D rollercoaster game, ‘ Coaster Crazy’ , which will be released on iOS during the coming holiday season.

“At the heart of Coaster Crazy is an incredibly fun, easy and compelling way to build rollercoasters using a touchscreen,” said David Braben, Founder and CEO of Frontier. “ You intuitively bend, twist and thread the coaster through itself and the scenery. It’s easy to build, ride and crash any type of coaster you can think of – tall, short, long, fast, wooden, modern, crazy or classic re-creations. Frontier's made over ten million coaster-building games over the last ten years, and I think this gives the best results and has the easiest and most fun coaster-building of all .”

Other Coaster Crazy features include:

Build a coaster empire in iconic locations around the world

Share your coasters with friends and others online, download and ride others’ coasters

See how your creations stack up on the leaderboards and rate others’ coasters

Take part in daily coaster building challenges

View the Coaster Crazy trailer here:




Pocket gamer's hands on:
"Due for release on iOS platforms "this autumn" (or, fall if you're that way inclined), this freemium title brings the theme park genre to the touchscreen generation, with a wonderfully intuitive interface that lets you draw the puke-inducing tracks of your wicked dreams."

I adore the iOS version of Lost Winds (although on a nitpicky side they should replace the Lost Winds intro video (lo res) with the Melodias intro video (high-res) to perfect it. But those games were and are amazing.
Can't wait for this one. It sounds really good.

So...the question on my mind, after I've built my coaster and take it for a ride/crash it...can I really launch the riders from their seats into the air? lol

Any closer to a release date? Gameplay trailer? Will you need help with any beta testing?
