Macintosh game publisher, Aspyr Media, sent us word that tomorrow they will begin to ship Sim Theme Park pre-orders. Sim Theme Park is a 3D amusement park simulator, where you erect rides and concession stands, to attract visitors. Here is a short description:
Build the theme park of your dreams, from the ground up. Choose fromSim Theme Park's system requirements are relatively light when compared to today's more more modern games:
three distinct themes, Lost Kingdom, Halloween, Space Zone or
Wonderland, pick the rides, from kiddie rides to pukefest, it's up to
you. But it's not just about the rides, you decide where EVERYTHING
goes. Feeling a little twisted, put the only bathrooms at the South
end of the park or keep kids bouncing off the walls with plenty of
sodas and candy at concession stands. A helpful advisor is provided to
give you instant feedback but ultimately patrons are at your mercy.
