Surprisingly there is a bit of resource management. But its non existant compared with the boredom waiting to the skyscraper to be finished.

I cannot stress this enough, please do not buy this game. It is duller than the dullest knife that has been sharpened by hitting it on a blunt rock. It is duller than anything I have ever done. Worst buyer's remorse in my life due to this game.

This game is SO not worth the time. It could have been much better. You have little to do with actually building anything, it's more of a manage heavy equipment than designing or building. Don't waste your money.

I bought this game to play with my 6 year old son, who loves construction vehicles and skyscrapers, and it's easy enough for him to play on his own. What little gameplay exists is very simple and repetitive; there is no escalation of difficulty at all, and hardly any variety. You're pretty much just going to watch skyscraper after skyscraper being built. It seems like there's potential for a much better game based on what's here, but as it is this doesn't feel complete. Still my son did get a kick out of it, so maybe a recommendation if you have small kids who love construction vehicles, but otherwise this just isn't a very good game.

Do not buy. It doesn't work, just blackscreens and minimizes to desktop for me. Looking on the forums everyone else has had trouble with it and there seems to be zero support..

Complete rip off, is it really so hard to design a simulator with some level of playability and enjoyment.

I had to dig out Sim Tower, a game by Maxis 15 years ago that is way better than this tripe. This company won't be in business long!

GmBH's simulation games are horrible include this game. No exceptions.
I'll never buy 'United Independent Entertainment GmbH's simulation games.
Save your money.

Don't buy this game. It's not like any real simulators. You just click a couple buttons and it does it. It might as well be a free flash game.

I am not one for writing reviews, but this game forces my hand.

Skyscraper Simulator bills itself as a skyscraper construction simulator. This is a blatant lie; in reality it is an "not responding" window simulator.
When you first load up the game, you are greated by a series of company logos; Developer, Publisher, etc. Then as the last logo fades to black, with much fanfair absolutly nothing happens. The screen remains blank. The Steam overlay freezes in place, and the game stops responding.

The issue lies not in my hardware. My i7-4790k, gt740, and 16GB of ram well exceed the minimum specifications. The issue lies purely in this peice of software(search online, many people suffer the same affliction).

As far as I can find, there is no fix. The game is broken and in an unplayable state. I would strongly recommend not purchasing "Skyscraper Simulator", save your $10USD for something else.

TL;DR
Pros: -A dang fine black screen before it crashes.

Cons: -Lacks any kind of depth/gameplay in its current state, because it does not work.

Other Thoughts: I am used to Early Access games being flawed, however this is beyond that. This is by-far the most broken Early Access games in my library of 400 games.

Not sure this is even a game. This is like the developers had to finish it in the last minute or fail the course they were taking in terrible game design. Awful.

There I was, as a new Steam user who couldn't afford something like SimCity. When I saw this game, thought it could be a good micromanagement simulator, but it started to drive me crazy even before the gameplay because I couldn't launch it (actually I spent more time trying to make it work than playing the game). There's no strategy in it, it's a one way road where there's a right path, and everything different will result in game over. And when the "road" is just twiddle sliders, most people will get bored within less than 10 minutes. I don't blame who greenlighted it (because I think I would too), but it's the first game which made me want my money back.

I have no idea why I bought this game.

I only have regrets and badly textured skyscrapers.

This is a very poor game because literally it is not a game. The game does not run at all past the insomnia logo and I have tried every solution presented on the steam support pages and have looked alsewhere on the internet to find a solution to this issue have had no way of fixing this game. I would not recommend this game to annoy one as I am know trying to get a refund or some exchange to rectify this problem. AGAIN do not buy this game.
