Another classic game has arrived on iOS today, with Atari releasing RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic for iPhone and iPad with immediate download just in time for the holidays.

The game is an amalgamation of the original RollerCoaster Tycoon game launched way back in the years 1999 and 2002s RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 for PC and Xbox, and is aimed at ticking all the right boxes for long time fans of the franchise.

Gamers who set about building their parks will be able to take part in 95 different scenarios whilst enjoying the graphics of the original games in all their glory. If we can call it that!

Create and run amazing parks complete with the most outrageous rides imaginable. RCT Classic includes a mixture of authentic playability, depth of gameplay and unique graphical style of Chris Sawyer’s original best-selling RollerCoaster Tycoon PC Games, now enhanced for handheld devices.

Of course this will involve all that classic gameplay including putting your own designer skills to the test, and well of course, your management skills as well. You are business man after all, be it a tycoon.

Packed with content, players can enjoy designing and building roller coasters and rides, landscaping parks and managing the staff and finances to keep their guests happy and the money flowing in.

Anyone looking for a healthy dose of nostalgia this Christmas can pick RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic up from the App Store for $5.99, but they will need to fork out additional money for the in-app purchases required to unlock the game’s three expansion packs; Wacky Worlds, Time Twister, and Toolkit.

Apple’s iPhone and iPad have become something of a safe haven for classic games, with some of yesteryear’s best titles arriving on the iOS platform. There are updated classics too, with the newly released Super Mario Run proving to hugely popular amongst iPhone and iPad owners.

Whether you like the old or modern classics, iOS has become quite the platform for some excellent mobile gaming. Our only concern? That the low prices of the App Store will prevent the next level of games being produced, and that would be a crying shame.

Update: The game is now available on Android as well.
