News - Build-a-Lot 4 and Righteous Kill!

Get ready for more strategic building management! Today, Big Fish brings us another fun new game!


Overview

  • Your role: Real estate manager
  • Theme: Building energy-efficient neighborhoods
  • Music: not bad; works well
  • Graphics: 2D graphics made to look 3D
  • Interface: angled overhead view; easy to navigate
  • Advancement: earn more money, build better buildings
Recently, I've been realizing just how much I like economic games like Farm Frenzy, Youda Marina, and Hotel Mogul. The genre is becoming one of my favorite.

Build-a-Lot 4: Power Source is almost an exact duplicate of Hotel Mogul in the way the mechanics and interface work, so I was quickly drawn in. You are hired by various clients to help out their neighborhood by constructing attractive homes, from which you collect rent money. But the unique feature of this game is that you are required to work at making the homes and neighborhood more energy-efficient with the help of hired technicians.

This is my first time playing any of the Build-a-Lot games, and I can tell you that I like what I see. If you appreciate this kind of game, you should try this fourth entry in the series.
