Thrillville: Off the Rails Demo
Theme parks are places where people go to enjoy themselves and even experience a bit of an adrenaline rush, in case they decide to ride a roller coaster or go for a spin in any other similar attractions. However, those who build and manage these venues are always under stress, since it is hard work to keep so many people happy and avoid accidents.
Raise the popularity of your parks
Thrillville: Off the Rails is a more lightweight take on the entire situation, since it makes the job a little more bearable, by integrating a lot of humor into it and many other elements that should take the edge off. However, the main concept is relatively the same, since you are basically in charge of a theme park and you have to make sure that everything runs smoothly, while also increasing your popularity with the visitors and attracting more of them day-by-day.
There is also a background story to go along with the missions in the career mode, coupled with the fact that you can create a character at the start of the game and customize a few things about it before jumping into the action. The plot revolves around the fact that your uncle owns a bunch of theme parks all over the country, but they are not doing very well, and it is up to you to raise their popularity and make a profit.
Deconstruct the plans of your enemies
As in every other business, there are more companies out there that want to achieve the same thing, but they cannot do so if the competition is too fierce. Hence, many rivals make a move against you over the course of the game, by trying to sabotage your park and generally make life more difficult for the visitors, which can severely bring your popularity down, if you do not take the appropriate actions.
Whenever you get bored of the managerial tasks, however, you can make things more interesting and jump into one of the rides available in your park, in order to experience the thrill for yourself from a first-person point of view. Moreover, it is also possible to build your own roller coasters, using a variety of components and a simple-to-use editor to bring your ideas to fruition.
An entertaining adventure and plenty of content
In the end, Thrillville: Off the Rails does manage to provide you with a fun and exciting experience, especially if you enjoy tycoon-type games and you do not mind having to perform some repetitive tasks as well. In addition, the graphic quality is decent and the editor can be used in practically countless ways.
