+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Three weeks ago RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile arrived on the App Store, bringing the beloved theme park series onto iOS. Now the game is set to get its first major update, bringing with it some improvements and new features.
Whilst the game is playable without spending a single penny on in-game coins or tickets, changes have been made regarding micro-transactions – meaning that buying in-game currencies will cost less for the next few weeks. In addition, wait times for building and construction have been reduced.
Alongside this, new attractions and features are set to arrive in the next update. Using a Flyover Plane, players will be able to send customized messages to the parks of other players. The Flyover Plane can also be used to promote your park, resulting in a bonus in coin production whilst the plane is launched. Some of the new attractions set to arrive include a Stadium, the Flying Jumbo Ride and the Gold Rush Mine.
RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile is available to purchase now for $2.99.

Editors note: Developers are bringing updated iPhone applications and whole new applications not even available on the iPhone to the iPad. All this week, leading up to the iPad launch, we’ll be looking at interesting iPad applications and iPhone app conversions.
Ziconic, developers of the iPhone app Air Coaster Pro are bringing the title to the iPad. In this version, Air Coaster XL, the developers will finally be able to realize their idea of a full featured roller coaster simulator and editor. The large screen of the iPad will be ideal for this type of application. Think of all of the apps that had editors crammed onto the small screen, here’s a great use for the expanded screen. Take a look at the impressive screen shots below for an idea of what’s to come (click any of them for full size previews).
Hit the jump for a couple more screen shots of Air Coaster XL including the excellent looking editor screens.
