This game is well worth the price, I got it at 1$ but even at 3$ it is well worth the money for it, it does have no options for resolution but you can press F7 to have a windowed screen which is what I play at since in fullscreen some of the contracts are harder to click on/have to click on the oppisite one you want.

Over all a good game :D

Being a Manager of a Call Centre in the real world, I find Smooth Operators to be somewhat close to what it is I actually do. Which I'm not sure whether that surprises me.

Okay, sure, the game is very blocky and stocky, and has all the replay value of doing the dishes, but its still quite amusing.

If you are looking for a simple but challenging business simularor then look no further it's always keeping me on my toes but it never gets too much. The game has a chearful aesthetic with music to go with it. One thing I would say is that some things could be made quicker and easier, I often find hiring large amounts of staff tedious, however this is a minor blip on what is otherwise a quite enjoyable game.

Hey everyone and this is my review about the game!

This is a Simulation game.


Interface/Menu/Settings

No options or whatever. (only ingame)
Only able to choose if you want to play. Normal or Hard mode.


About the game.

You start with a small company and it needs to grow like a true business building. You are able to give your company a name that you desire. You have to complete jobs to earn some money. Completing some Challenge (achievements) will give you some extra bonus Cash. Slowly but truly you will expend and become a true hit. But more things will be unlocked and causes for trouble.

Destroying a room will only give a little bit of money back.
Upgradeable Rooms
Tutorial ingame.
There are not alot of music variety.
There is an option to change the volume of the Sound/Music with a slidebar
Able to speed up time.
There are many Save slots.

Other things.

Birds are able to enter the office floors?
Each day you get a \"tip of the day\" and able to save your game.
Reminds me of \"Sim Tower\"

-------------------

I Give this game a 7/10

The game starts out interesting. But after awhile, it gets repetative, there's no cutscenes, no character growth, no feeling of being connected to the minions. In addition moving buildings around is not easy at all. I agree with a previous review that project managers unlock higher levels when you really want ameneties (water dispenser, etc.) or other unlocks!

Mixed feelings about this one, I feel it need a bit more development before its full potential can be reached.

In its current state it is quite tough to progress.

C'est clair que graphiquement, ça pique les yeux. Heureusement dans ce genre de jeu le gameplay est l'élément le plus important et il est ici très réussi.

Pas si simple que ça à maîtriser (j'ai bien foiré mes premières parties) mais suffisant accessible pour être rapidement addictif.

Smooth Operators for sure isn't best management game I have ever played. Compared to many others, it looks really decent. Yet, I had some fun playing it. It's really hard to fail in this one, so the only thing you need to be prepared for is spend some time after building your first floor, and with every next one. This game looks nice, have some cool options BUT if this could be a little bit harder, a little bit advanced - it would for sure be more sucessful. At least it's cheap, so you don't feel like you have wasted money on simply game. Managing a call center sure is unique idea but in case of this game, it really feels like it could be done better. Too bad we don't have neutral option here because it would fit better for my review.

The wrong mix of casual gaming and simulation. It is fun for a while but the absolute lack of basic features (like the ability to reorder lists by a different column than the first) makes the strategy and micromanagement part a real chore and even impossible. I got it at discount (although the game is already cheap) and it’s great value for money. Otherwise it’s a sub mediocre game.

A ce prix, difficile de ne pas recommander Smooth Operators, un jeu de gestion très sympathique et assez original puisqu'il nous permet de gérer un Call center ! Il y a pas mal à faire pour parvenir à faire prospérer notre entreprise, il faut bien choisir ses contrats, former ses employés correctement, avoir une gestion impeccable des heures de travail et des salaires de chacun, pour qu'il ne jette pas l'éponge au bout de 3 jours, lassé de se faire insulter par les clients au téléphone !

Non vraiment, Smooth Operators ne paye pas de mine quand on regarde les screens, mais une fois qu'on a lancé une partie, on est vite plongé et on ne voit pas le temps passé. Une bonne pioche, disponible à tout petit prix !

Minimalisitic, simple, efficient and distracting Management simulator. Some pretty nice easter references & lol while playing.

Let me make one thing clear from the get-go: Smooth Operators is super difficult. It's a call center simulator which has so many balls to juggle, that you'll no doubt need to restart a few times before you finally get the balance right. People answering the calls, computers exploding, walls cracking, contracts to fulfil... and while it's all a bit overwhelming and ridiculous at times, there's something about it that really makes me want to crack on and keep trying. Overcoming Smooth Operators is quite the achievement, and it's sort of refreshing to play a management game that wants to destroy you constantly, rather than hand you a victory on a platter.

$2.99? I bought this game not expecting much from it. And now it's 2am in the morning. Low price for hours of fun, where a pizza costs more and lasts 5 minutes? I recommend this game for people that enjoy tower simulation games :) very well made.

At the moment I'm some 5.5 hours into the game. Turns out it's not really a "simulation" nor a "strategy" game (as implied by the Steam tags) but a "click-and-wait" game. Luckily I got it at a decent discount.

The premise is promising and could make for a very interesting game. Thus it's a real shame it's almost not a game at all. Your business runs on its own and you just have to keep adding new rooms and people when you have the money -- and usually you don't have the money, so most of your time is spent waiting for money to accumulate. There's also not much to stop the money from accumulating, except for the random message dialogs that randomly pop up and require you to click "OK". The game is literally unable to advance a single in-game day without you being present clicking something. Forget about SimCity and the like where you could leave the game to run for an hour and come back. This game runs a minute or two and after that it need you to click a button.

Building a new room into your call center costs $3000 or more. At least in the beginning (for the first couple of hours) you won't make more than a few hundred dollars a day, so you wait. And wait. And wait. Occasionally someone quits and you need to replace him or her, and that of course takes away from the small pile of money you had accumulated.

Upgrading rooms costs $5000 or more, so your money seems much more well spent just adding rooms than upgrading them. Or at least I think so. The game lacks proper statistics so it's difficult to get an overview of your situation. Sure, you can read the thoughts of all of your employees and you can see a list of your clients (up to a whopping number of two (2) within my first 5.5 hours, or two in-game months), and you can click on all of your rooms and get to know some stats about them. But there's no list of rooms, or heat maps of any kind. There is a list of employees, but it appears that you cannot sort it, and the filter system (for choosing which types of employees you want to see) is really clumsy, requiring multiple clicks on a different screen from the actual list! So while you can get the details of a detail, there's no real big picture available.

Talking about your employees, you can hire different kind of people: inbound (IB) agents to receive calls, outbound (OB) agents to make calls, managers, janitors, etc. The different professions are very stereotypical. They might've been true in the 1960s or funny in the 1990s, but seriously, it's 2016 now. When a manager's work description is "putting fear in the agents" and you see him running around and shouting at people, I don't even. Similarly, a "Coach" turned out to be a cheerleader girl waving pom-poms. Seriously??

You can also educate your employees (just a click of a button and ta-dah, they are instantly smarter!). The education levels are very sketchy too, like a manager learning a class "Management By Fear" or another person learning "Lying 101".

Yet another profession is the Project Manager. They unlock new things for you to do. However, you cannot decide what, so most of the time they unlock the possibility of building an even taller building (10 floors, 15 floors, ..., 50 floors, ...) when your building is still less than 5 floors tall and you'd much rather have, say, some better education levels or some new room types. (Not that it'd matter, you wouldn't have the money to buy those things anyway, until after waiting for quite some time.)

All in all this game seems to waste its potential really badly. It's not a game that you play intensively, but a game that you put into the background or on your second screen while facebooking or something, and just check out occasionally to click "OK" on that dialog. I believe I'll still give this game a chance for a couple of more hours to see if the money would start pouring in a little faster and if that would make it funnier, but I have my doubts.

+ Casual fun
+ Plenty to unlock and play with
+ Addictive

+/- Controls don't always make sense, lots of misclicking/unintuitive clicking
+/- Time ocassionally moves too slowly (even on the fastest speed)
+/- Stuff can cost a lot of money

- Unlocking things takes too much time
- Too much micromanaging 10> virtual days into the game
- I couldn't find a way to generate any more money once you get less and less income (mainly because of people quiting because their PC is broken (among other things) and IT guys quiting because they can't keep up = endless loop)

When I catch someone stealing from me--instead of firing them--I put them in an office on the top floor with three managers, to crush their spirit. 10/10
