Constructor Classic (1997)

 

About This Game

Constructor takes the empire building and resource management of the best simulations and adds to it a strong dose of character interaction, humour, and strategic competition.
Take the role of a real estate developer in a race to build up and manage resources, properties, environments, and human interaction, while trying to outperform and destroy rival development companies.
Start with a few workers, foremen, repairmen, and a small sum of money. Through precise resource management you’ll have to take care or your tenants’ happiness and compete against your opponents.
Would you like to be rich and ruthless or maybe you prefer to create your own Utopia?

Gameplay

The player controls a construction company, and aim to drive the other players out of business.

Using teams of workers and foremen, the player must build facilities to manufacture building materials (a sawmill, concrete works, etc.), in order to build houses (ranging from simple wooden cabins to large mansions) in which to house tenants who pay rent and thus fund the company, as well as producing new workers, tenants and other characters.

Along the way, the player can build homes for undesirables such as gangsters and hippies, who work to undermine the enemy.

Features

  • One of the most memorable city-building sims, distinguished by its cartoonish graphics and a wide range of “extra-curricular activities”
  • Take out your competition’s workers, steal their assets, burn their building and bribe city officials
  • Management and competition in a humorous setting
