Ladies and gentlemen, your spare time is about to evaporate: Transport Tycoon has officially arrived on mobile platforms. You can pick it up on either your iDevice or your Android phone or tablet, and enjoy the game that started the tycoon genre nearly 20 years ago.
If you’ve somehow missed what this is all about, put it this way: You run a transport company! It is your job – of course – to make as much profit as possible, by transporting people and goods across a map. Place roads, railways, docks and airports and command an empire of transportation routes. Create a monopoly, improve your speed and efficiency, design the best routes, respond to demand, and crush your rivals.
20 years ago, Transport Tycoon was labelled “the new standard” in management simulation games – and today it remains one of the best-selling PC games of all time.
Whether you’re revisiting a favourite or exploring TT for the first time, this is an opportunity too good to pass up. Origin8 Technologies have handled development duties, under the watchful eye of series creator Chris Sawyer. You can pick it up now in the iTunes App Store or Google Play.
