yeah....i can imagine they will screw up alot.
For all we know they could just include some maps then ask money for a new map or coaster. or dont let us make coaster but only place standard stuff for the "inituive controls" or whatever.
Its a game that also probaly wont play well on iphone if it is not adapted.
I think this game will have a major "control" overhaul, wich will take alot of the original fun out of it.
On ipad it will ofcource be playable with no controls overhauled.

but....they didnt say it would be for iphone. just for iOS. i hope they only release it for ipad and dont edit or addd anything. just make it work and let us have fun ^^

Lets hope it's not freemium because I'd pay $10 for this.

Yes! This is one of the only PC games I've ever wanted on the iPad. But Q1 2013? can't wait that long.

I hate to burst everyones bubble, but i'm pretty positive Atari does not own the rights to RCT 1+2. They took over the franchise with the 3rd game, but the first 2 were by completely different publishers and developers: Infogrames and Hasbro Interactive.

I'm sure it'll be isometric and surely they won't be that stupid to cheapen a franchise by crafting it in the same vein as the drivel that is Theme Park? Ugh, that game is drek.

According to the Wikipedia article, Atari owns both Infogrames and Hasbro Interactive. No mention if they own the individual IP rights.

Atari must've read my mind!!!

I'm overjoyed at this news. Hopefully its not just a port, and they add a few elements in (w/o taking away the core gameplay) and that it is premiumly priced (freemium will just make it paytowin imho).
