“With its freeform, arcade-style gameplay that lets you build some truly insane coasters and then ride them in first-person, Roller Coaster Rampage indulges all my wildest childhood 'what ifs'...It's an inventive approach to coaster crafting that allows for some real artistry and intuition in the tracks you make”

Nathan Meunier, IGN

“If you like Indie games that offer simple and fun gameplay experience and with nice stereoscopic 3D effect on top, then you probably will not be disappointed by Roller Coaster Rampage.”

About This Game

Roller Coaster Rampage is a fast paced, high-scoring, competitive rollercoaster simulator with destructive environments!

Players compete to perform the best manual maneuvers, collect the most gems, link to the most track sections, and gain first place on the leaderboards!

Roller Coaster Rampage revolutionizes the coaster genre by introducing on-the-fly track construction and deformation. In previous games the coaster riding experience was a passive, non-interactive experience. Roller Coaster Rampage introduces an innovative approach, and a specialized procedural coaster engine that allows players to build coasters in real-time as they ride them. Players leave behind a trail of procedurally-generated coaster tracks and supports, which then become obstacles as the player circles back. While riding players can also dynamically connect to isolated track segments like loops, cobra rolls, bat wings, and barrel rolls. With these innovative game features and engine technology players can now build coasters while enjoying a fast paced, arcade style, roller coaster racing simulator.

  • Build your track rails in real-time through a specialized procedural game engine.

  • Coasters can even derail, slide, and link back to track rails again.

This game. I has its moments. To be honest, it really isn't the best.

The trailer is one of the reasons I bought this game (And it was half off). It really overhypes the gameplay. There is only one map, and some limitation to what you can do (I initally thought you could crash and destroy EVERYTHING from the ground to trees and certain buildlings).

I haven't played all the levels and havent done much free mode so maybe I can't post a real review, but this is what I have experienced so far.

I would reccomend it if it was on sale and you needed a quick little game to pass time or have some fun with something different (Just like buying DLC Quest).

(Another quick thing is that it doesn't full screen at its start menu but changes when ingame. It can be a bit of a hassle at times :P)

Roller Coaster Rampage is an interesting twist on roller coaster building. Don't expect to build amazing, realistic coasters because that is hard to do, but collecting gems and smashing through objects is a lot of fun. It's definitely a lot better using a controller. I use my xbox one controller and plug it into my PC and it works great. The graphics and scenery look pretty cool too.

This plays kind of like a magic carpet ride. Wasnt sure what I was expecting from a 3d roller coaster, but in this game you just kind of move around and it lays track as you go. You dont plan it out as in other tycoon type games. In this game you need to collect gems adn do stunts. The controller support is ok but the game is very picky if a jump says 50 mph, and your at 51 or 49 you crash. Crashing would be more fun if people were on the roller coaster screaming, but the game is mostly silent minus a muted background track. Meh, woulda been more fun to build a wild ride like Mr.Bones but there is no real building in this game just as you go. Kind of like stearing a plane but it lays roller coaster track.

Rating: 2/10 Value: $1.99

Does not work on Windows 7 x64. When I start the game it goes up to a point where I see some kind of castle and tells me to push the "A" button of my controller - but when I do so nothing happens. Can't do anything else but go for ALT+F4 on my keyboard to quit.

Don't waste your money!

If you want a good rollercoaster game, go for one of the rollercoaster tycoon games or thrillville off the rails, not this poor excuse of a game.

I really tried to compare this Game but I can't!?!

Game is starting... Check!
Click on Campaign... Check!
GameController... Check! (and needed)
Fasten Seatbelts... Check!
Gates open... Check!
Train is starting... Check!
...the Train starts forwards and the Track builds immediatly under the tires, I can see Gems that I have to Collect :)
I go left, right, left make a roll and a loop (cklick x to connect to permanent TrackParts) ohhhh to slow ahhhh crash :)
Try again... Check!

This Game is so funny and you want to even get better and better so you try and try and try and try!
You can "drive" your way thru the Scene but you have to use all permanent Parts!

OK next try... and there we go again... wait what is this a big Octopus in our Way ahhhh crash.... nothing happened... huuu we get Points for everything ;)

I can say that this is a really good "Just for Fun" Game with Steam Achievements and the Fun Factor and re-playing it Effect to get even better and better is very HIGH!!!

It's on SALE now, so give it a try and have FUN!!!

It looks like a good game right? i mean for ten dollars,its got good reviews and a good video to go along wih it,
it must be a good game or at least decent, right?


I have a good pc that DOUBLES the reqirments, when i start it up, shows the company logo, gets to the crappy looking menu,
so lets say you go to the options first, you ajust some things, you try and exit the options and BOOM! it crashes. you start up again,you get to the logo then the crappy menu you just click free ride, black screen then an error you click ok back to the black screen and it CRASHES AGAIN! i have wasted 2 hours of my life trying to get this to work, i got it to work ONE TIME,i saw the controls, it pictured an x360 controller, i had one pluged in, i had been using it for other games earlier, it was working fine, i saw the area, looked like crap. i got to the rollercoaster and gess what? the controller did went on for a while, and then it crashed, yeah. if anyone at valve is reading this. I WANT MY MONEY BACK!!!!!!

This is a fun little arcade-y game. Don't buy this and expect a fully polished game; it definitely feels cheaply produced. It certainly isn't worth $9.99, but if you can buy it in a bundle or on sale (below $5), it makes a fun and quick game

It does not run but crashes with a D3D error. Though this problem is well known (see the forums) for months, it is still not fixed.

This game has a nice change of pace concept for a coaster sim. Its not a theme park came, but very much a build as you ride coaster generator. The concept is nice and create an easy pick up and play format. However, I find there is one main flaw in this game and that is the lack of a rewind feature. It is quite frustrating to build a really long coaster and have it crash right at the end and have to start all over. Either restarting 10 seconds before the crash or just a simple rewind feature to be able to go back to any point in your build and deviate from your original plan. I would invest a lot more time in this game if this was the case. Otherwise, I see myself playing it seldomly.
