Intrigued by the name of this game and the retina graphics, I'll wait the time to download it.

Downloading! Probably the first iOS game which (visually) resembles old-school theme-park games along the likes of RCT and Theme-Park World the closest.

+1 for Universal support.

Looks wonderful, is this a proper building game (like Theme Park) or just another freemium game like WeRule & FarmVille? I didn't see any mention of in-app purchases, but there's that "Buy more tickets" link in the game.

I gave it a play for about 10 minutes and it felt very much like Farmville/Cityville even down to the point where 2 things pop out of buildings when they've finished a task which you then click on. Pretty bored of games like that now it has to be said. Always have barriers.

A Snooze Fest

The only thing this "thing" did for me was make me want a Roller Coaster Tycoon sim now more than ever. Circus City is all about dropping non animated attractions and waiting hours for them to make money. I'd rather have paid .99 - 1.99 and had a full experience without the seriously waste of life mechanics of Farmville. If you're going to do freemium games, do it right or don't do it at all.

I'll check whether what you've said is right or not.
