PC Classic Transport Tycoon Now on iOS


The classic PC game Transport Tycoon has officially made its way to the AppStore, this past weekend. While we have seen previous attempts at an iOS release via OpenTTD, this release comes from original developer Chris Sawyer, so it won’t be pulled like the 3rd party attempts. Players will be presented with 49 scenarios to play through, as they work to build and manage their transport company, and be come the Transport Tycoon.

If you’re new to the game, Transport Tycoon puts you in charge of controlling a full fledge transportation business, in the style of SimCity. It is your goal to set up routes for buses, trains, etc. to keep your passengers happy, all while making money to keep things going. This release will put you right into the classic game, down to the original look and sounds.

Description:

Take control of your own fledgling transport company, and use your engineering skill and business acumen to keep cargo and passengers moving - and keep the money rolling in!

Transport Tycoon contains everything that made the original PC game an all-time classic, plus a whole host of brilliant new features - bigger, richer worlds, deeper simulation and a huge variety of land, sea and air vehicles. The intuitive new touch screen interface makes it easier than ever to build and maintain your transport network.

Whether you’re planning and constructing ambitious engineering projects, or simply exploring the intricately simulated workings of the game’s world, Transport Tycoon is your ticket to many hours of absorbing and rewarding entertainment.

TRANSPORT TYCOON is the definitive version of the classic simulation game, created by 31x and Origin8 Technologies in collaboration with Chris Sawyer, the original designer and developer of the TRANSPORT TYCOON and ROLLERCOASTER TYCOON franchises.

Transport Tycoon is a universal release available on the AppStore for $6.99. While reviews aren’t looking that great right now, it is a 0.1.0 release, meaning there is bound to be bugs at this time. Being as Chris Sawyer was also the man behind Rollercoaster Tycoon, here’s hoping this catches on and he brings an official Rollercoaster Tycoon to iOS next.
