Constructor is a unique construction game
, way different than games like SimCity
. In the game, packed with humorous undertones, the player controls a construction company
in a map split between several estates, and must deal with other teams to win the game. A sequel, Constructor: Street Wars
(known as Mob Rule in the US) was released in 1999, but failed to achieve the same success of the first game. I have found this game to be quite entertaining and fun and had a hard time leaving the computer. 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. Now tell me, in what other game can you that? These elements really make the game stand out. The graphics and sound are top-notch. Overall, Constructor is a fun little game if you're that type of guy who likes to put others out of business.
