Cost of Game/Time Spent Playing easily makes this one of the best deals you will find on Steam. I've had a lot of fun experimenting with different layouts and mixes of employees. If you like tower builders or business simulators, it's a fun light hearted game that will keep you challenged the whole way through. How high can you build before the nearly unescapable death spiral brings you crashing back down? Easy to pause and save at pretty much any point in the game, which is great for someone like myself who usually plays turn based strategy games or slower city building games.

Computer techs kicking computers until they start working again is quite possibly the best example of IT work I've ever seen in a video game. Watching managers storm around freaking out for no reason will make any call center, retail, or food service worker feel right at home.

This is one of those ones you buy that make you angry you spent $60 on some AAA title you got bored of in 20 minutes.

If you have ever worked in a call center, this game may bring back those horrible memories (especially if you were a supervisor and had to deal with those awful productivity reports LOL), but this is a fun and unique building game in the same vein as SimTower. You have to make sure you have enough agents to answer the call volumes of the contracts you choose to accept and you must keep those agents happy and productive.

PROS
+ Fun balancing multiple agent types and IT Support, Housekeeping, and building amenities
+ Lots of things to build and upgrade
+ Realistic sound effects that make you feel like you're back in the call center
+ Cartoony but attractive graphics

CONS
- Low income per call means slow pace of building upgrades
- Satisfying contracts AND your staff can be tough

Great simulation/management game. You take control of and construct a call center while managing employees, workloads, clients and HR issues. Features and upgrades unlock as you progress and expand your business, and the workload can become a bit of a challenge if you're not careful with the layout and transportation of your office, along with your employees moods and scheduling.

+ Fun and simplistic - quick and easy learning curve
+ Soundtrack you can tap your foot and whistle to
+ Unlocking achievements grants a cash bonus (which usually hits right when you need it)
+ Offices can be built up to 40 floors high
+ IT staff fixes PCs the way I'd like to "fix" mine
+ Most dedicated receptionists ever

- Menus would benefit from sortable columns when evaluating employees, along with viewable past reports; would be nice to schedule/educate employees by building
- Can't zoom out wide enough to see entire building
- Adam Demamp, Blake Henderson and Anders Holmvik not included

Overall, this is probably the best deal among the sim/tycoon genre on steam.

8/10

Honestly I bought this game for fun and to see how bad it was.
I was actually surprised when I booted it up how quickly I was jamming out to the soundtrack. The gameplay is actually really entertaining too.

Terrible review is terrible.

ORIGINAL--I really, really, REALLY hate to downvote games. But this one the gameplay is GREAT, the graphics are very nice, and the controlls and interface is pretty easy to understand, but one issue I have trumps everything else, the game doesn't save. Now, I'm not seeing many other people with this with problem, but after a big update, nothing would save, which sucks. I was really loving the game. But this could just be a bug on my client end and may be working just fine for everyone else, if this is so, you only have $3 to lose, but definitly give it a try incase it really does work. Like a said, I would give this game a 10/10 for gameplay, but the saving issue trumps that in my opinion. I hope this is just an issue for me.
----------------------------------------------------------------

I really love this game, as you probably read above. I was having some issues, but re-installing seemed to fix the problem. Definately worth the money if you enjoy this job area, if you don't find call centers very interesting, it may not be the game for you. 10/10

For this small game and its cheap price it is really good. I have to say this game is really good. The concept is you have a call center. You have a certian amount of calls. You hire staff to answer/make calls. You also build new offices and other buildings to keep up with the increasing amount of calls to make/ answer. You have to manage the budget so you cant go too crazy. You can also find special codes for special features in the game. Overall this game is great and will give you a lot options to fill up your hours.

Like, I would assume, most people who bought this game, I picked this up as kind of a joke purchase. I thought it'd be something I maybe fired up for ten minutes and then dropped; something I could mention off-hand to the guys at work who think it's hilarious that I have played more than 50 hours of Euro Truck Simulator. However, it was surprisingly engaging - my first 40 minute session felt like a third of that and I only stopped as I was interrupted, and to my surprise I've since returned to the game.

It's a fairly straightforward management game, but so far seems well-balanced, introducing mechanics over time and neither too challenging to feel like good results are attainable, nor so easy that you feel like you're just coasting.

The basic mechanic is building up your building to build up your business (a la Unholy Heights), combined with a very rough sort of worker management - you can hire and fire staff, assign rooms full of them to accounts, educate them and essentially add modifiers to their mood/productivity etc. by hiring other staff. There are a variety of roles covered, so balancing the ratios is the part of the game you'll have to think about the most.

Full disclosure, you will spend a fair bit of time just waiting - I presume that will be reduced as the game progresses and you start earning more money, but I've reached a slightly uneventful plateau where I just have to wait a couple of days to add a new building, and that's a little tiresome even on the highest speed.

I like the art style - it's nothing novel, but it's well executed, and you should be able to see at a glance whether the visuals are for you.

The music is a little cheesy, but I guess that's to be expected from a game about a call centre.

Overall, I'd recommend this as a cheap purchase (I got it in a bundle), but this price seems pretty fair anyway. Don't buy it expecting an immersive cinematic experience, but for the money, it's pretty good.

Best $3 I've ever spent on Steam, by far! The game is a bit older now but I found it last night and also discoverd that a sequal is in development. If you're still not conviced after seeing the videos and screen shots here on Steam, I made a video that showcases the early gameplay. Maybe it'll help your decison. :)

So.. Yeah. I'm kind of a dictator.

Great revelation.

10/10 would bully staff again.

I got this game as part of a bundle with other games, although this game was one of the reasons I bought the bundle. The building of units reminds me of Sim Tower. The game itself is very hard and even more difficult if playing with an erection. Its probably one of those games which could get boring if it was too easy, but the difficulty is also slightly decreasing my enjoyment and I am wondering if the game might be impossible as at just 4 levels of tower block the elevator gets jammed, without enough funds to build a new one and the R&D guys just want to keep allowing more floors rather than a much needed elevator upgrade, and building stairs is not an option (which could also be a fire risk). I was also hoping more people would use the Relax Room before quitting, but it seems very few people use it and the game gets to the stage where you are either contantly giving vacations or people are quitting. I'm also wondering if there is an optimum "only one way" of beating this game when it comes to placing rooms. Its a challenge and Ive already found myself starting a new game several times, trying things in different ways in order to try and crack it. For a few quid it is worth it, and had I had known about this before seeing it in a bundle, I would have bought it for a few quid as it is worth it.

This is a great little time killer. $3.....15 hours of play and counting....good deal. If you are a tycoon/business sim junkie, this one is a little on the silly side and is a bit basic, but it is worth the few bucks!

Got all the achievements as of today in 28,2 hours.
I liked the goal-system of the game in which you must be as close of your offers:
- without exceeding them, otherwise employees complain they have nothing to do, lost in salary-efficiency and maybe having them quitting
- nor doing too little, otherwise giving you less income than you can except and even get maluses which make you lose more money
Balance is the key!!!
I simply recommend the game for the fun and simplicity, even if some improvements could have been made and some bugs should be corrected. (I listed them in the forum: "suggestions thread")

I went into this thinking ah it might be a bit of fun but nothing amazing since it was only $3 but MY GOD this game is fantastic not really sure what other games this developer has made but im loving this. It is fairly hard I will warn just cause you can screw your self by expanding to fast and stuff like that.

Who ever they got to do the music did a great job has a great sound track. For someone that loved simtower / mad tv this is hitting all the right buttons with me honestly I think its a fantastic game at $15 but for $3 (thats what it was at the time of writing) I cant think of any reason that you should not be able to get your money out of this game.

Smooth Operators is a indie game where you micro manage your call center company.

You gotta build new faciities in your company in order to allocate workers to fulfill contracts, each contract gives you a certain amount of job per day on 3 areas, OB IB and BO , outbound calls, inbound calls, and backoffice tasks, so you'll need to hire people in each specialty accordingly of how many tasks you get per day on each.
There's also the Service building where you hire your IT staff to repair broken job stations, my god they break those computers so damn often, Janitors and Engineers to keep the building clean and repaired.
Can also build toilets and kiosks around so you can avoid your workers to go home in order to get lunch and get maximum efficiency from them, office buildings where you hire Human Resource staff who help you maintain order with your employees in a better way, Project Manager to unlock upgrades faster and Account Manager in order to receive new contracts.
As you progress you can eventually train your staff and upgrade buildings in order to maximize efficiency.
You can build up to 40 floors high, and 3 different transportation methods, elevator, flow tube and teleporter.
Game is hard once you start, but once you're in about 30+ days it becomes fairly easy to keep upgrading to the point it might get boring.
