RollerCoaster Tycoon (iOS and Android, Q1 2013)
Based on the original best-selling management simulation classic which has sold more than 13 million units, RollerCoaster Tycoon is headed to iOS for the first time. As an up-and-coming tycoon, players create their own custom theme park, designing coasters and building attractions to gain new visitors and increase revenue. Players can choose from pre-designed rollercoaster templates, or design their own wild creations from scratch with the Roller Coaster Editor. With modern features like sharing coaster designs with friends, the newest version of RollerCoaster Tycoon offers an experience both long-time fans and newcomers will enjoy.
Next we have another game that I know many of you played for hours on end, Dungeons & Dragons: Warbands. I personally never got wrapped up in the D&D world. I do know that it has an extremely large following and you guys are sure to enjoy it. The original Warbands game was apparently played with collectible figures. It should be interesting to see how they convert this one into a mobile game.
Dungeons & Dragons: Warbands (iPad – $2.99, December; Steam, Facebook and Android coming soon)
Dungeons and Dragons: Warbands is a turn-based strategy game set in the Forgotten Realms, and the first official Dungeons and Dragons title ever to hit iOS devices. Players select one of four factions; build their Warbands from hundreds of unique units, and battle other players to secure victory for their faction, and control of Zhentil Keep. A single player campaign allows gamers to practice their tactics and unlock new units.
Judging from the statements in the released information, it looks like D&D should be hitting first followed by Roller Coaster Tycoon some time in Q1 of 2013.
