Vomit wave hits theme park
Member Name: technoir
Advantages: Roller coasters! Haunted Houses!
Disadvantages: Vomit, gangs of bikers, trapped visitors
Theme Park is awesome! Beginning with just a field of bare grass, you envisage your ideal day out, then start building! Start with the paths, then the best placement for the rides. The first rides you get are a little tame, but as time goes by, you will have built the most extreme roller coaster that would probably kill you with the g-force! Then theres the snacks! Put too much salt in the fries and they'll be gagging for your drinks. Put more ice in the drinks and see the profits roll in, but the guests may become unhappy. This game has it all, from caretakers to entertainers, happy and sad customers and the occasional gang attack. A vomit wave can be disturbing, but as long as the janitor is on the case you should see it out.
A great game, so simple yet packed with features and fun.
This game did not rely on graphics, but on gameplay. Still as playable todayas it was in the nineties. A must for any true retro gamer.
Summary: Still as good today as it ever was
