The graphics are cute. The idea of the game is to build a tourist trap in the little town. Too funny! There are various citizens who have ideas to make the town the best and most attractive to a variety of vistor types *families, truckers, etc* There is normal play and free play. This is a cute game and well worth the Daily Deal.

This game is a B.

I cannot believe there is only ONE review! I unfortunately wasn't able to play but it sounds like my kind of game. A modern Road of Rome perchance?

I don't think I am really stupid, but I never could figure out what the heck I was supposed to be doing after first building a bunch of stuff it told me to build. After that, it seemed like all I did was keep repairing the same silly things one after another. And they were silly "attractions." Anyhow, it soon bored me to tears and I couldn't even spend an hour on it.

 

Great game, but needs algorithm tweaking

Hi All,

This is a cute game with a funny concept. There is a tutorial to it, so I'm not sure what happened to the person who says they couldn't figure out what to do after the first building. You have the chance to build different kinds of buildings to attract various populations (truckers, families, college students, senior citizens, etc.).

The problem with the algorithm begins with the introduction of the firehouse. All the sudden, you are wasting at least $1000 per turn, because EVERY turn something burns and something needs repair, plus what you just extinguished will also need to be repaired. You are investing so much time with damage control, that you do not have time to focus on other matters.

The land expansion is a good idea, but you cannot keep an eye on all buildings and expand. You hear that something is burning or in need of repair, but have to scroll back and forth to figure out where it is. It might be helpful to add a button that will zoom to the property in need of your attention.

The graphics are fine for me. This isn't a game that you've paid $80 for.

Please fix this problem to significantly improve game play.

Without this problem, this game is easily probably 4 to 4.5 stars. With this problem, it drags the game down to 2.5 to 3 stars, tops.

Thanks for a great game! Hope you can address this issue.

Heather Ceana
