Free Version of Transport Tycoon – the Legendary Simulation Game – Available Now on the App Store
Game developers 31X and Origin8 have announced that the popular paid app Transport Tycoon is now available to “test drive” with a free Lite version. Available in the App Store, Transport Tycoon Lite allows potential transportation entrepreneurs to fully enjoy three tutorials along with additional abbreviated scenarios, all featuring same rich simulation and challenges as the full game. When players decide they’d like to continue building their transport empire, or they’d like additional challenges, the full version of Transport Tycoon is available for most iOS and Android devices in the App Store, Google Play, and on Amazon for £4.99 GBP / $6.99 USD / €5.99 Euro.
The official Transport Tycoon Player’s Guide is also now available at no cost at http://guide.transporttycoon.com/ (mobile site). This guide features basic gameplay information, advice, tips and tricks that will be valuable to both new and experienced players. This companion to Transport Tycoon can be used in conjunction with either the full game or the new Lite version.
In Transport Tycoon, players become entrepreneurs in control of a transportation company, competing against rivals to make as much profit as possible by moving passengers and various goods by road, rail, sea and air. Created by legendary game designer Chris Sawyer and heralded as the new standard in management simulation games upon its original release on PC nearly 20 years ago, Transport Tycoon remains one of the best-selling PC games of all time.
“We’d always intended to release a Lite version of Transport Tycoon as we know it’s far and away the best game of its ilk on any platform, and this is a prime opportunity for fans – both old and new – to explore the Transport Tycoon world and the huge variety of scenarios available,” says Chris Sawyer. “It’s just a taste of a rich cake, so I hope they come back for another slice.”
Praise for the mobile version of Transport Tycoon includes:

“Transport Tycoon is in many ways the precursor of world-building games like Minecraft that have conquered the gaming world in recent years.”- Wired
