In Touch, you must purchase and open card packs to build your theme park. The game features a coaster builder and track editor, missions to complete, and the ability to collect new cards to get different "coasters, rides, scenery and missions for your park," according to the App Store description.

RollerCoaster Tycoon Touch is available now on the App Store for all devices running iOS 9.0 or later.

Series creator Matt Groening, told the developers if they wanted to create a Futurama mobile title then he's going to "sneak some more Futurama episodes in there."
