Transport Simulation

Best Free Android Apps: OpenTTD – transport tycoon business simulation game

OpenTTD is a reimplementation of the Microprose game “Transport Tycoon Deluxe” with lots of new features and enhancements. The first Transport Tycoon (TT) game was released in 1994, with the release of Transport Tycoon Deluxe (TTD) following the next year.

You play the role of president of a start-up transport company in 1950, building railway, road, air and maritime transportation systems for commodities and people. The goal of the game is to outsmart your competition and become the game’s highest-ranking transport company by the year 2050.

There are many tools available to build transport routes, including ability to fully modify the landscape. Each town has a Local Authority which tries to prevent the player from excessive terraforming.

There is support for single player games against your Android device, as well as online multiplayer games.

It’s definitely worth reading the project’s tutorial before you start playing.

There’s a real dearth of high quality open source software available for Android. That’s a real shame! Fortunately OpenTTD is open source goodness.
