Build-a-lot: Fairy Tales

12 June 2012
  • Summary: A little more than once upon a time...
  • Pros: Fantasy setting. Enjoyable overarching storyline. For a freemium game, refreshingly well-paced. Plenty of "non-grindy" replayability.
  • Cons: No meaningful consumables. Fairy animations lack flair. Reskinning of past Build-a-Lot games (for those craving something new).

Accessible building sim both challenging and fun.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this is a pure building sim and lacks some of the "playing God" features of the SimCity and The Sims games. (For example, here you can't destroy your town with natural disasters or force its inhabitants to become unhappy.) Children will learn about managing cash flow, resources, buying and selling in a way that is challenging but not too complex or overwhelming.
