Ultra-complex, open source business and building simulator
If you adore deep, complex, and rich simulation games, you already know who you are. OpenTTD is for you. It's based on but unaffiliated with Transport Tycoon Deluxe, and is totally open source.
Like so many simulation games (à la Sim City), you're presented with an enormous open-ended world plus limited resources and seemingly unlimited menus. What kind of empire you build and/or destroy is totally up to you. It's admittedly rather overwhelming to trawl through the zillions of options in the endless menus in the beginning, but once you get the hang of what you can do, the possibilities are nearly endless. Create complex interlocking economies, trade with nearby towns, plunder the earth for her natural resources, and become filthy, filthy rich.
A tutorial can be found online at http://wiki.openttd.org/ - highly recommended if you'd like to get into this world. You can play alone, against scenarios, or even against other simulation fanatics.
Playing on a tablet is highly recommended - the buttons are too small for chubby fingers otherwise.
Online multiplayer games are available, as well as a single-player against computer.
How to play: http://wiki.openttd.org/Tutorial
If you cannot hit buttons at the screen edge - calibrate touchscreen from the Mouse emulation dialog in the Change device config dialog at startup.
Touch the screen with two fingers to cancel current action, if you misplaced a road or a station.
This game is open-source - you may find sources at http://openttd.org/ or at my website.
You can install old version from here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/libsdl-android/files/apk/OpenTTD/
This game is not affiliated with the original Transport Tycoon Deluxe game, and does not contain any content from the original game.
Touch the screen with two fingers to cancel current action, and scroll the map.
Fixed app not starting on Android 4.0 and 4.1
Hey guys. If you want to get free gifts from your phone check out (www.AndroidPrizes.net.tc) Just got myself a free $250 Visa gift card.
Pls can this game be updated with a players guide? How do I play a game without knowing what I am playing? We who r just plating for d first time don't even know objectives not to talk of what to play. Pls hellpppp!!!!!
Got the original on PC about 20 years ago and loved and this version has all the mods that have released since. Perfect port for android, just wish I had a fine point stylus also would be nice I'd one of those train Sim games could load ottd maps in and I could drive my own lines.
Its good but I don't like pixels. But still nice game!
Far to many messages I spend most of my time closing them and after changing the setting I still get the messages and now I have not got the settings icon any more!
If you don't have a phone with a large screen its really hard to play. You can change font, button and resolution size but it helps only so much. Otherwise its a fun app.
