game release date for PS4:
Rollercoaster Tycoon Joyride is a production that allows you to build a three-dimensional rollercoaster course and then test that creations as a passenger by hand. The title is a spin-off of a popular series that started at the end of the 90s. The production has support for virtual reality technology, more specifically PlayStation VR goggles, dedicated to PlayStation 4 consoles (although we can also play without them, on TV). Nvizzio Creations is responsible for its creation and the publisher is the well-known company Atari.
Rollercoaster Tycoon Joyride game consists of two basic elements. The first one is a simplified editor that allows you to create your own tracks. We have a wide range of tools and elements to choose from which to implement our ideas. It is worth noting, however, that in comparison to other releases of the series Rollercoaster Tycoon the production discussed here is still quite a simple game in this respect. We will also not find here an extensive strategic layer typical for this cycle.
Instead, the second and very important part of the game is track testing. We get on the carriage and let ourselves be carried away by the emotions, observing the surroundings from the perspective of the first person. It is worth noting that apart from riding and admiring the views, Joyride is also an additional attraction, in the form of shooting at various obstacles and objects visible on the track. For the hits we get points, and after the game we can compare our score with the results achieved by other players.
In Rollercoaster Tycoon Joyride we can play alone or with others. While having fun on your own, you can choose the free mode - the so-called sandbox - or play within the progression system, which allows you to gradually unblock subsequent elements (e.g. different carriages).
The local multiplayer mode offered by the production of Nvizzio Creations allows us to challenge several friends (up to a maximum of four). The game consists in building a track that our rivals will try to pass, as well as passing creations made by them. We can also share the tracks we have created with others via the PSN network.
Tycoon Joyride's Rollercoaster offers attractive 3D graphics and an advanced physics engine. Graphics is maintained in a slightly comic style and extremely colorful. In addition, the game experience is enhanced by the use of PlayStation VR goggles - thanks to the virtual reality of driving a wagon on complex, detailed tracks is an unforgettable experience.
