Simple, addicting gameplay.

  • Summary: I'm of the generation of the original Sim City. Transport Tycoon was one of my favorites, as is the RollerCoaster Tycoon 1&2 (3 got waaayyy to involved for my liking.) I like simple sim/strategy. I don't need to know where my "sims" work or what they had for breakfast. I prefer running their infrastructure. Or building an amusement park. I had downloaded Cities in Motion, but it wasn't what I wanted. Too involved, too many variables.

  • Summary: I purchased this after a free trial play & have not been disappointed. I like the more simple games sometimes. It's a challenge, but it's also fun. The more difficult and realistic games are very intense & demanding so this game is a nice change of pace.

  • Summary: Build-a-Lot is a fun game, although I did get stuck on a few levels. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a time-waster simulation game.

  • Summary: I prefer building over bombs and shooting any day. I like the how each level gets progressively more challenging. I like this and am trying the next one in this series.

Repetitive, short, but fun while it lasts

  • Summary: Overall the game is very straightforward. For anyone who has played simulation games before, this game really doesn't pose a challenge until the last couple levels. It is still fun though and I pleasantly passed a few hours playing it. There really isn't enough variety in this game to make it interesting for too long. I can see the casual play being fun for a while; however, don't expect $50 worth of entertainment with this game.

Not fantastic but Fun

  • Summary: For those who have played casual games, we know how flooded these game stores are with Match3, Hidden Object, and Dash type games. So it's a relief when something different comes along. For what it is, this is a thinkers game and i actually had fun with it. It isn't overly difficult but can get challenging as you move along.

Reallly addicting!!! :)

  • Summary: It was so hard for me to find a game I like. I love Sims but got a bit bored so needed something new. After a trial I decided to buy it, it is so much fun to build your "own" business in real estate. In this game you just make you dreams come true LOL. The graphics are not good but what would you expect from a game for 10 bucks, and really you don't need graphics in this game that much. Very simple, not much learning. Tutorial included.

  • Summary: I really like TM games... so this game was fun for me. I LOVE the Build-a-Lot games and this one was just another version of the game. I would not make this my introduction to the Build-a-Lot franchise, but I did buy as I do enjoy these games. Some of the levels are very hard and others are easy, but that makes the game fun.

Friggin' Addictive

  • Summary: While I'd like to say that when the amazon game download store opened with three or four free games I thought they'd be junk. I was wrong. I've only played this one so far and it probably sucked me in for a good 6 to 8 hours of total game play. The levels get progressively more difficult to the point that the last one is just a little absurd. Overall it's definitely fun but maddening.
