Game Vortex writes: "Create-A-Mall has a crisp and colorful appearance. Although it does look good at first glance, there isn't all that much movement to go with it. Your character, the super-attractive mall-manager something or other, and others in the game don't have any animation. About the only things that do move are the tiny mall patrons that walk through your mall. While they do walk through the mall and into stores, they don't have any other idle animations. What's worse is that you'll spend a lot of your time upgrading your stores in your mall, but you won't see a pixel worth of change when the upgrade is complete."
