RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile is a game released on 14 April 2014 for iOS, with an Android version released later in the fall. It is "village simulator" styled similarly to games like The Smurfs Village, with heavy use of micro transactions and timers (including a regular and premium currency), as well as the omission of many features from the preceding three PC games.
On 11 March 2014, Atari made a tweet using the #RCT4M hashtag. The fanbase did not know what the 'M' was for, but some speculated it could stand for 'mobile'. On 16 March, Atari released a trailer for the app (as of now the video has almost 10,000 dislikes). The following day, Atari responded with a tweet: RollerCoaster Tycoon is back and it's coming to mobile! Rest assured, there is a PC experience in production now for release this year!
At that time, the RollerCoaster Tycoon website was updated to feature the new app.
RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile was criticized by many fans due to the price of the app being $3.99 in addition to having microtransactions. Other common gripes include being unable to edit the landscape, the lack of a rotating camera, and lack of the ability to make objects transparent.
