    Roller coaster tycoon classic is absolutely worth the 6$. No micro transactions, no ads (not even ads for the expansions available!). Just a good port of a great game. It's rct 1+ expansions + rct 2 bundled as one game. The game runs smoothly, feels natural. It's better somewhat on iPad, just for screen real-estate with menus, but there's nothing wrong with the iPhone/android versions. Solid pick. Good port. Happy nostalgia!
