Summary: Out of all, this is the best addition to the series! Goods: The premier lots (Taken away from the 2 previous versions) are back. The zoned lots really help with the buildings' negative curb appeal. The stages and appraisals really help with making money. You don't have to waste money on blueprints. Harvesting tree lots really help when you are low on money and materials. A lot of time is given on the levels. Bads: I GOT NOTHING! Final Verdict: BEST. GAME. EVER! P.S.
Summary: It's nice to see Build a Lot back and good to see that the series is back on form after that irritating Elizabethan one (I got so annoyed with the fake old english that I did not finish). This one has a new twist in that you often have lots with trees that you can harvest either for money or materials and it also had a number of episodes with special projects that again make a change.
Summary: Another winner in the Build-a-Lot series - I really enjoyed this one. I couldn't get a ribbon for all the levels (some I barely finished in time) but it gives me an excuse to go back and replay those levels. :-) I liked the fact that you could harvest a tree lot to gain extra materials, and I also enjoyed the extra projects like building a boardwalk or fixing the ski-lift. All good stuff.
Summary: This is probably the best Build-a-lot game of them all! The tree lots really open up the different strategies you can use to beat the level. I also like that your best time is showed at the top of the screen when you replay a level. The special projects are fun to complete and this game has a lot of levels. Being able to "Offer Double" when you own a real estate office is also a welcomed addition. Very fun and polished game overall.
Summary: Super fun! The tree lots make earning cash a lot easier and with the new real estate office you can stage your houses to earn more rent or appraise your houses to get more money when you sell. I really like the quickplay levels too. This is easily the most fun Build-a-lot game!
Summary: I've always been a build-a-lot fool when it comes to this series and after disappointing games ( Elizabethan and Power Source-You have no idea how many times I blew a fuse after the neighborhood did) HipSoft steps up to the plate with another game that really gets to the core of real estate which is building, buying and selling. Well done with good game play and I'm really glad to power outages!
