Don't let Frontier's experience with RollerCoaster Tycoon and Thrillville throw you off. Coaster Crazy is not a management game, and it's not an amusement park simulator. It's actually a puzzle game.
In each level, you're asked to build a rollercoaster - often under some strict limitations - that satisfies the picky tastes of your passengers. You might have to make it fast, or safe, or cost effective. It might have to go through hoops, boast three drops, or have two seconds of air-time.
Coaster Crazy is clever and rewarding, but a finicky track editor and a lack of immediate feedback means only hardcore rollercoaster fanatics will stick with it for the long haul
