Coaster Constructinator is the second game in the Constructinator series. Unlike its predessecor, Zoo Constructinator, Coaster Constructinator is themed around building amusment parks and roller coasters. The game is inspired by games such as Roller Coaster Tycoon and Planet Coaster. The game is on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC, with the game getting free updates.
Coaster Constructinator has two viewing modes: Aerial and Guest views. Aerial View is where you do most of your stuff, managing finances, placing down scenery, manipulating the terrain, and building coasters. Guest View is a new addition, inspired by the Zoo Tycoon series. In the park, your in-game avatar, created once you start the game, will be walking around. At anytime, you can go into this avatar, walk around the park, and ride rides.
The game features 2 main modes: Campaign and Freeform. Campaign allows you to play on a pre-set park, where you must complete certain challanges. While in Freeform, you are given an empty park, where you can build the park of your dreams. The game also features an Editing Area, where players can create their own Scenarios, Coasters, and Buildings, along with options.
The game has online functionality. Players can connect to the internet, to visit and colloborate on parks, along with sharing custom Coasters and Buildings with eachother.
Guests are the things you will need to focus on in this game. They ride the rides and buy stuff from you. Each guest has multiple things they need to be happy.
Entertainment - Increased by riding rides or buying souvineers.
Hunger - Restored by eating food.
Thirst - Restored by drinking drinks
Restroom - Restored by using the restroom
Heat - Restored when under a place that gives shade, or from getting wet in a water ride.
If a guest in unhappy, they may leave the park, or even vandalise.
Staff make this stuff work. They do important things that are needed to make your park a great place. Here's a list of all of them:
Janitor - Cleans up trash and trash cans
Mechanic - Repair and inspect rides.
Security Guard - Stop vandalization
Vendor - Work and manage shops
Entertainer - Entertain park guests
Staff need to rest in staff buildings. They also want as much money as how much they work. If these requirements aren't met, they will become unhappy, and may quit their jobs.
