The Sandbox Mode enables you to construct a park on an empty plot of land with all features and rides unlocked. The Challenge Mode restricts funds and sets targets for play. The Career Mode takes you through a series of objectives to evolve and develop your park.
The enjoyment is usually found in creating ever more fantastically, and ridiculous roller coaster rides that you can then experience in the first-person perspective.
Our examiner, Andy Robertson, first checked Planet Coaster 3 years ago. It was re-examined by Jo Robertson and updated 10 months ago.
In the US, ESRB state: Players can modify landscapes, create concession stands, and build customizable roller coasters to please crowds and earn in-game currency. Unfinished coasters may cause cars to fly into crowded walkways; people are depicted hurtling into the air when struck—though they quickly get back up. One coaster ride can cause customers to get nauseous, resulting in a vomit animation; park guests leave a beige splash on the ground.
Although rated for very young children, some content packs purchased separately have higher age ratings. For example, the Planet Coaster: Ghostbusters features mild violence that lacks any apparent harm or injury to human like characters, violence that lacks any apparent harm or injury to fantasy or mythical beings and creatures and pictures or sounds likely to be scary to young children.
This expansion adds Ghostbusters’ themed rides and events, including a dark haunted house. Ghost and hellhounds are found that can be frightening to younger children. Players can shoot the ghosts who then disappear into thin air. There is also a menacing human-like character that gets shot by the Ghostbusters’ proton packs and reacts in a mild manner to this violence.
