About This Game

You're a constructer and you’ve specialized in the "bringing up" of skyscrapers. Due to your specialization over the years you constantly get new orders for higher and higher skyscrapers in town.

Exceedingly dull.

You twiddle a few sliders, buy some heavy machinery and slowly watch a very generic tower get built. Computer game equivalent of watching paint dry.
Avoid.

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

One of the worst "games" on Steam ever. Everyone who voted for this on Greenlight should be punished.

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 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.

Absolutely terrible. Its nice to indulge in all the "micro", if you can call it that, managing of the construction process, but it mostly involves finding the best people in your budget, which involves very little strategy.

Once you've built your first tower, you have to wait for quite awhile ingame to build up enough resources to attempt to build a second, bigger tower. Otherwise, you'll either end up building smaller and smaller towers or bankrupt. Literally the second you wind up with $0, the game is over.

There is very little depth, very little replayability, very little strategy, and very rough graphics. Easy pass.

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..

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.

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.

이 게임 절대 사지 마세요, 아니 'United Independent Entertainment GmbH'의 시뮬레이션 게임들은 절대 사면 안됩니다.
큰 후회와 아까운 돈만 생각날거예요.

I was expecting much more from this game. I thought it would give an accurate simulation of building a commercial building from the ground up. I thought I would get some more choices like creative design, building systems, interior floor plans. But I got so, so little from this game, and this options you do get are far from enjoyable. Stay away from this one.

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.

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!
