Classic Amiga/PC management sim Theme Park and Call of Duty rival Battlefield 3 heading to iOS

Sugar and spice

Two giants of EA gaming past and present will be heading to iOS later this year, the company has told Pocket Gamer - the classic Amiga / PC / console management title Theme Park and the next portable iteration of DICE’s Battlefield series.

Not too many details have been revealed about the contents of this mobile version of Battlefield 3 just yet, but given the previous release (Battlefield Bad Company 2) was set alongside the events of the home console version, we expect the action in this title to follow a similar path - setting the game in an earthquake-hit Iraq, rather than with Sweetwater and co.

But despite our love for shooting terrorists in the face (virtually, I mean), it’s the appearance of Theme Park that has the office running around like lunatics, eating chips with unhealthy levels of salt, and making motions to shake each other’s hand in a dark room before suddenly pulling away at the last minute.

They’re from the game, in case you were wondering / worried.



Running theme

One of Bullfrog’s finest creations, Theme Park tasks you with running various amusement parks across the world. You'll have to pull in punters with fun and exciting rides, make sure they’re kept happy with a decent level of staff, and extract as much cash from their sweaty palms as you can.

It’s widely regarded as one of the best management games ever made, thanks to its cheery disposition and engaging gameplay, so we’re very much looking forward to seeing it on iOS.

Both games are likely to be demonstrated next week at Gamescom, so we’ll have more concrete information for you then.

@honggyu That's the trick that EA has pulled by announcing these two games together. Youngsters will immediately ignore the majesty that is Theme Park and say, "Yay! BF3!". Meanwhile seasoned gamers who remember the days of making a theme park out of 10 skulls with excessively salty food may not even remember what the second game they announced was 'cause hell, there's always a game with guys looking at iron-sights in a warzone, there's only one Theme Park :)

I played Theme Park for hours and hours when it was ported to the original PlayStation, so I'm pretty excited about it.

I'd love Theme Hospital too.
