A Surprise!

I like builders, but always shied away from this series for some reason... I've now tried it and I'm pleasantly surprised! It's a pure builder's game: get money & supplies & build to meet goals. The first dozen levels are fairly easy, but boy it gets tough! I'm currently on level 30 and I've had to restart it twice. It certainly makes you think - it's a true strategy game! I'm certainly a fan!

Back to Basics!

This was just an all round good game, if I could, I'd give it 4.5, but I'll have to settle for a 4. Here are my thoughts: Good Parts: Made you feel like a real builder. The game in general was really fun Goals- some were incredibly challenging and some were easy. Letters. Most of them gave you cash bonuses which really helped me in the levels I needed a cash goal. OK Parts: As with all these games, the graphics weren't great. It kind of felt like I was playing a game from 2001. Bad Parts: Some of the goals required you to buy more lots/houses. This really dragged on the game as this took a certain amount of time. Material usage. The amount of materials it cost to build some homes was ridiculous. I found myself constantly having to buy more. Lack and cost of workers. Up untill Level 6 or 7, untill you build a workshop, training another worker cost $50,000. This really annoyed me as most of the time, the buildings needed 2 or 3 workers, and then the goal needed me to upgrade, so I would have a lack of workers, which really lost time, and on occasions, levels. If you love the Build-a-lot series, you can't look past this. With so many features you'll find only in this game, it's a must have.

I've always loved this game. It is simple but addicting. I think it is a good length too. I wish there was more to updating the houses. Like seeing paint change or something but I understand that would be a bit hard to do. The dialogue is pretty lame too but storyline isn't really what the game is about. All in all I'd recommend this game to anyone who likes time management games.

My second best game series to Chocolatier

This series is my 2nd top choice of games if you love building from ground up with beautiful places to visit and a great storyline, and progressive up-grades.

My true favorid of all time management

* Clean simple but rich in detail, high quality graphics. I play this series since years and still have fun with it. * Excellent gameplay, as it is not just about clicking fast to make the goal, but you have to plan ahead and be creative. * Though the original game doesn't take all advantages, the follow up games are improved, still if one is new to this kind of games, it's the right one to get you feet wet. * simultaneous task make it a good fun for replay, as one can improve through many retries. - first version didn't allow single level reply (all follow up games do!) -- only 4 games of the series are for MAC, later games of the series only for PC :( Summary: One of the VERY few game I loved to replayed for years, and still have fun with it!

Okay Building Game
February 9, 2012

OK, if you like this sort of thing. Not particularly challenging, at least not in the free time I had. While I enjoyed it well enough, I didn't care for it enough to spend money on it. For the most part, it seemed kind of pointless to me (although it may have been better deeper into the game...).
