    Dieses Spiel wird nicht mehr hergestellt.

    Theme Park World ist der langerwartete Nachfolger des berühmten Bullfrog-Bestsellers Theme Park (1994), der über 2 Millionen Mal verkauft wurde. Bereits damals begeisterte das Spiel vor allem durch seine schöne Grafik und das fesselnde Gameplay. Bullfrog Productions Ltd., eine hundertprozentige Tochter von Electronic Arts mit Sitz in London, wurde 1987 von einer kleinen Gruppe begeisterter Gamer gegründet, die es sich zur Aufgabe gemacht hatten, Spiele zu programmieren, die sie selbst gern spielen wollten. Heute, zwölf Jahre später, gehört Bullfrog zu den erfolgreichsten Spieleschmieden der Welt, die in ihrer Firmenhistorie zahlreiche Hits zu verzeichnen hat, die sich immer durch ein ausgeklügeltes Gameplay, neue Ideen und Top-Technologie auszeichnen.

    Ganz in dieser Tradition entstand jetzt Theme Park World, eine nicht immer ganz ernst gemeinte Wirtschaftssimulation, in der der Spieler die Aufgabe hat, einen Freizeitpark zu entwerfen und erfolgreich zu betreiben. Ein einfach zu bedienendes Interface und eine fantastische Grafikengine ermöglichen einen schnellen Einstieg in das knallharte Entertainment-Geschäft. Die neue Software arbeitet mit einer erstaunlichen Echtzeit-3D-Engine und bietet als Option eine Ich-Perspektive, mit der Sie Ihre Fahrgeschäfte und Parks selbst ausprobieren können. Jederzeit steht dem Spieler ein "Berater" mit Rat und Tat zur Seite, um den oftmals kniffeligen Balanceakt zwischen Spaß und Ökonomie zu meistern. Fahrgeschäfte können nicht nur gekauft, sondern auch weiterentwickelt werden, so daß kein Freizeitpark dem anderen gleicht. Eine verbesserte KI ermöglicht intelligenteres menschliches Verhalten, mit dem Sie sich genauso auseinandersetzen müssen wie mit der Verwaltung Ihrer Gewinne. Es macht einfach nur Freude, den kleinen durch den Park wuselnden Besuchern und Angestellten zuzusehen. Aber der Spieler braucht nicht nur zuzusehen - jederzeit ist ein Wechsel in die Ich-Perspektive möglich, um einfach nur durch den Park zu laufen oder gar alle Attraktionen selbst zu erleben.

Press Release - PlayStation:

    Electronic Arts Ships SimTheme Park for the Sony PlayStation

    New "Sim" Game Allows PlayStation Players to Create, Operate and Experience Their Own Virtual Theme Parks

    REDWOOD CITY, Calif. - March 22, 2000 - Ten people just threw up on the roller coaster. There are twenty screaming kids waiting for a bathroom. On top of that the Dino Bounce just broke down! It's just another day of managing the park's front office when playing SimTheme Park . Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: ERTS), the world's leading interactive entertainment software company, and Bullfrog Productions today announced the release of SimTheme Park for the PlayStation game console system, a new 3D simulation game in the tradition of SimCity 3000 and the original Theme Park .

    In SimTheme Park, players can create and operate the most exciting, attractive and feature-packed amusement parks their imaginations can conjure. Unlike other titles in this category, SimTheme Park allows players to ride their creations and experience them from a first-person perspective. In addition, the PlayStation version offers a redesigned interface to take advantage of the PlayStation controls and several fun "mini-games" that can be enjoyed throughout the park. While building the theme park of their dreams, players can take time out and try their hand at Dino Racing, the Strength Test, Smash 'Em, Shooting Gallery, Fortune Teller, Giant Puzzle and Coconut Shy.

    Players construct their parks based on one of four different themes: Space Zone, The Lost Kingdom, Land of Wonders and Halloween. Each themed area features a variety of rides, concessions and attractions from which to choose. A simple and intuitive user interface allows players to jump right in and start building. Players can create amazing roller coasters and log flumes with the flexible track-building interface, as well as exciting go-kart tracks and water-rapids complete with crossovers, jumps and tunnels. An advisor gives instant feedback to help create a successful theme park.

    After designing the most gut-wrenching roller coasters imaginable, players can take their thrilling creations for a test drive to judge whether they need more loops, steeper drops or faster turns.

    Aside from building fun rides, players must keep their park visitors happy in a number of other ways. They need to make sure admission prices cover operating expenses, staffing is adequate, restroom facilities are sufficient and that rides aren't too intense to be enjoyed - - all while staying on budget. To supplement park income, players can build shops and kiosks and set up sideshows. Every aspect of running the park is at the player's fingertips.

    SimTheme Park carries an ESRB rating of "E" for everyone. It is available in stores now for a suggested retail price of US $39.95 or by direct order from the EA Store at http://www.eastore.ea.com or by calling 800-245-4525.
