constructor - be the council

bigbmxdav..., Ciao
30 January 2010
  • Excerpt: "Who could have possibly imagined that a game where you essentially play the council would ever be as fun as this. You get given a patch of land and it is up to you to choose what sort of housing or amenities you build on it. You then have to choose tenants to live in the houses which come with varying attributes such as what upgrades they expect, what rent they pay and what they expect the local area to be like. It is then your task to juggle ...
  • Pros: clever, strategic
  • Cons: takes patience

Building is my hobby

  • Excerpt: "...hours, right? Your whole role in Constructor is to build a community, with factories, houses, shops, hostels and parks. As well as building you also take control of banking and finance, and a MOB squad, which offer you loans, and gangsters who can terrorise other neighbourhoods. You have a chance to play in 5 different terrains, including Greenland, townhouse and jungle. There are also around 20 patches of land to purchase during the game. There ...
  • Pros: Great fun
  • Cons: Not enough tenants or buildings

Quite a complex game but ENJOYABLE

Shammy, Ciao
14 May 2001
  • Excerpt: "This game, although quite old now, is THE game! It is quite complex, and so it takes quite a while to get into the game, but once you have the knack of playing it, you will NEVER stop playing it! I have had this game for about 2 years, and i am STILL playing it, as it is VERY obssessive and addictive! The basic aim of the game is to build up a neighbourhood of houses, earn as much money as you can, and wipe out your opponents, through running ...
  • Pros: Cheap in shops, Game play is AMAZING
  • Cons: Graphics Sound are not up to todays standards, but are good enough for me !

  • Excerpt: "I found this game fun to play. it was a resonble price and looked intresting so i brought it. when i came home i installed it and played it. the instructions in the book were easy enough to follow, bascially the hole point of the game is to build and matine houses, you have to build a neighboor hood and you have diffenet levels of people. e.g like the slobs go in2 the lower houses , and the higher class the people the better houses they get. you also ...

13 February 2001
  • Excerpt: "Constructor is a game with qualities way ahead of its time,the game has some tremendous features as well as a couple of downers. The general aim of the game is to build a huge estate of the best quality you possibly can, to stop you doing this your rival will pull all sorts of devious stunts that will stop you in your tracks from pickets by hippies and sending in a madman with a chainsaw to destroy your buildings. The game is great and has loads ...
  • Pros: Great graphics  +  Gameplay
  • Cons: Some frantic moments

Complex, but fun.

Grix_Thra..., Ciao
20 September 2000
  • Excerpt: "...point. Somewhat like its counterpart, Constructor is big, crass, very British and very expensive-looking. And, just like the Nike store, you're likely to wander away after a day's play empty-headed, muttering 'Too much. Too much.'You see, there's complicated, and there's complicated, and then there's Constructor. Well, no, not so much complicated as utterly overwhelming. At times, Constructor places so many gameplaying demands on you that it starts ...
  • Pros: Fun, but then .  .

3 September 2000
  • Excerpt: "THE WRITE UP FOR THIS GAME SOUNDS INTERESTING BUT ONCE YOU START PLAYING IT YOU'LL SEE THAT IT ISN'T REALLY ALL IT IS CRACKED UP TO BE. YOU ARE IN CHARGE OF THE BRITISH OR GERMAN AIRCRAFT FLEET DURING THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN. ALL YOU DO IS SENT FIGHTERS, BOMBERS OR RECONS FROM ONE BASE TO ANOTHER OR ACROSS TO GERMANY. AFTER A WHILE THE GERMANS ATTACK YOU AND YOU HAVE TO SEND UP MORE AIRCRAFT TO DESTROY THEM. BUT, AS STATED, ONCE YOU GET INTO IT YOU'LL ...

A classic game!

  • Excerpt: "Constructor is now an old game but it still is very enjoyable to play. The basic idea of the game is to build and maintain houses…. And oh yes to make lots and lots of money. You can play this game on a 486 and it runs perfectly. Of course the program runs from DOS, but it still can be launched from a DOS window in Windows. I found that it gave me a few error messages. If you have a TCP/IP protocal installed (you will if you can connect to the Internet,) ...
  • Pros: Can work on old PC's, very playable
  • Cons: I encountered a number of errors
