Aspyr Readying Sym Theme Park For Release (With Pics)

by , 2:30 PM EST, December 13th, 2000

Aspyr is preparing to release Sim Theme Park, and some reports have it popping up in retailers across the country. Sim Theme Park is the latest in a long line of wildly successful Sim based games, originally developed by Maxis. The Macintosh saw the release of the smash hit, The Sims, at this past summer's MACWORLD NY conference, and Sim Theme Park looks to ride that wave of popularity. Sim Theme Park allows users to design an amusement park, full of rides and attractions, and watch the Sims enjoy your creation. According to Aspyr:

Build and manage your own theme park from the ground up. Choose bloodcurdling five-loop roller coasters, lava fountains or graveyards. You're in charge. Dare your customers to come aboard. See for yourself. Risk your own nerves as you ride your own rides. Do you think your guest would like a little salt with their fries? Too much salt gets crowds thirsty. Too much sugar -kids get twitchy. It's your job to manage every nuance of the park.

Pick from four entirely different themes: Space Zone, Lost Kingdom, Land of Wonders and Halloween. Explore fantastic rides, shops, and sideshows from the visitor's perspectives. Design your own rides using a simple and intuitive user interface. A helpful adviser will give you instant feedback to help you create a successful theme park.

Experience your park in all its glory!

Sim Theme Park is available for US$34.95. You can find more information at the Aspyr web site.
