"I was shocked by the revelation of its original release date of 1994. Was Bullfrog's seminal management sim really that old?"
Considering the PS1 port is in the longbox, yes. (Thats how i remember some games.) This game was great, I wonder how Peter Molyneux would make it today....actually no I don't, it's perfect the way it is.
The game could only be worse if it was remade today. Think of all the new rides and mascots they could sell to us after the fact.
Urgh. Didn't like Theme Park World / 2 already and today it would be super horrible with microtransactions and dlc crap.
This already happened:http://www.destructoid.com/...
That's pretty fucking sad: you try to make a joke and it turns out it happened for real
Wait... people forgot EA did that already? No wonder the industry gets away with so much shit, we have the memory of goldfish.
I didn't forgot I just missed it back then. But you're right we're collectively very goldfish-like.
There is only one restroom in the park. It is at the end of the hedge maze. Also, don't ride the coaster. I created it one notch too fast so it is about to destroy those innocent people on the walkway below as it goes flying off the track into the sky.
Oh the classic death coaster.
Never gets old.
Face it, everyone would do this just for the lols! :P
Theme Park was an awesome game. Had at least 200 hours of fun with it on the Amiga, SNES, Playstation and the Sega Saturn
Aww man this brings me back to the good ol' days.
I remember wanting to like this game. Loved the everloving crap out of Rollercoaster Tycoon though. And Theme Hospital kicks ass.
Right in the childhood.
Woah another one of my childhood games is on gog.
Curse you christmas shopping and wiping me out.
One of my fav games.
I'd like to make a theme park.
Is that from Gummo?
Bacon on the walls:
Gummo was such a bad movie.
i honestly couldn't finish it. Made me feel icky inside.
It was pointless.
There was a game called "Theme Hospital?!"
I'd want to make a hospital with a "village people" theme
"It's time for your checkup!"
I wish this is what they meant by 'theme' hospital :D
Theme Hospital was utterly awesome, and I'd still recommend it now. And it's available on PSN.
Nurse required in pharmacy!
Doctor, attending psychiatry please!
The way bullfrog did graphics really made them stand the test of time.
Both theme hospital and theme park look awesome. Even Dungeon keeper still looks good
Awesome game but l always preferred Theme Hospital.
Love this game, used to come home from grade school, every crappy day and just get lost in it. I can already hear the sounds of vomiting and "ew!" as people walk past it lol
I love this game.
It amused me to no end once I realised you could rig the games... yknow, like a real theme park! :D
*Stares*Dammit, my images appeared in backwards order.
The joy of this game; was setting high salt content on the fries; and an above average caffeine in the sodas. Bathrooms? That'll cost ya, bub.
Result? Everyone drinking more often, which increases their speed and going around the park faster; using the bathrooms more often, and voila, almost no lines and quick turn around.
...and sometimes small riots at the bathroom stalls.
They were clever, those Bullfrog guys.
Sounds like piss poor management to me.*Ba dum tiss*
You win, sir. =]
man i used to play the hell out of this game
I already bought this in the 90's - they're trying to sell me the same game twice? Bah!
Well, at least it's a hell of a lot cheaper now :)
I played the shit out of this as a kid. I still play it today, on my DS!
Got it for DS as well, still very faithful to the original DOS/Amiga releases (unlike how EA tried to milk it on iOS). :D
I still hope someone brings new life in to the Roller Coaster Tycoon series, RC3 was a nice try but it didn't have the same feeling to it, even riding your own roller coasters didn't make up for it.
OMG Bullfrog.....and Westwood.....DAMN YOU EA!!!!
I want to buy this and play it a lot. I played the shit out of Theme Park on my Amiga.
I used to play the ever lovin', blue-eyed crap outta this on my Genesis!
awww yiss...mothafuckinTheme Park
