Thrillville: Off The Rails

Thrillville: Off The Rails Plot

Your self-designed character is the manager of a line of very unpopular theme parks owned by your uncle, Mortimer, who is the designer of many great theme-park-related inventions. There are five parks, and each one has three sections that all tie in to the same overall theme. For example, in Thrillville Giant, the objects in the park are all very big. Sometimes, some of the rides for the park continue the same theme. During your park's rise to fame, you have to deal with many attempts to take down its popularity, mainly from Vernon Garrison, a rival character who runs another chain of theme parks called Globo-Joy.You need to keep your customers happy so that they don't go to Globo-Joy. Throughout the game, there are lots of mini games and missions to be played, and there is a separate multiplayer mini-game section, as well as another section where coasters can be created and saved to be used in the game.

Thrillville: Off The Rails Gameplay

The game contains minigames to play along with editing rollercoasters. While the DS version contains only seven minigames, the versions for other consoles contain over 40 minigames. The rollercoaster editor is similar to that of the Roller Coaster Tycoon series, but all coasters have to start in assigned areas. If the assigned missions is completed then the player receives thrill points. If enough thrill points are gained, the player can move to the next level.

The game received a mixed to positive reception. IGN gave it a 7.5, criticizing the graphics, and saying that the minigames are hit or miss.

GameInformer gave the game a 7 out of 10 verdict, again criticizing graphics and calling the game repetitive.

GameSpot gave a 7.5, again for graphics, but also occasionally unresponsive controls.

Gametrailers did not review this game, but the public were very positive towards the game giving it an 8.0 on the Wii, and a 9.4 on Xbox.
