While previously released roller coaster simulators typically involved using an editing tool to build and modify your theme park attraction, Roller Coaster Rampage does something different: you'll create the roller coaster tracks in real time as you ride them.
As you ride your roller coaster, you might derail, slide or crash, so there's a sense of danger as you try to create a path through the 3D environments. Jewels located throughout each level let you accumulate points, allowing you to earn one of three stars for your overall performance.
A procedural engine designed specifically for the game lets you lay down tracks and supports as well as connect tracks to existing loops, barrel rolls, helix, bat wings, and cobra rolls.
The game includes a campaign mode that offers 30 distinct levels to complete, where you'll be able to experience jumps for extra hang time and perform various stunts. In addition to the campaign, Roller Coaster Rampage offers a free ride mode that has you creating your coaster within a time limit and then saving it to share with other owners of the game.
Online leaderboards let you show off your stunt-making skills as you earn points during each run, with bonuses award for destroying parts of the environment as you maintain your death-defying speeds, twists, and turns. The Steam version of the game also includes achievements and stat tracking, from vertical G's to the number of objects broken, so you can monitor your progress as well as those on your friends' list.
PerspectiveDuring the building phase, where you actively connect track segments together, the game is viewed from a third-person perspective. After the roller coaster is "complete," you'll be able to ride it from a first-person viewpoint. Roller Coaster Rampage is also designed to take advantage of 3D displays, allowing you to experience
OptionsIn-game options let you adjust the colors of rails, supports, and ties as well as toggle trees, adjust the sound effects volume, level of scenery detail, control sensitivity, and the ability to flip the Y axis.
