You may be forgiven for thinking that there's really nothing out there besides the SimCity games in this field, but actually this title is worthy of your time. In actuality, Build-a-Lot is far more upbeat and realistic than the usual sluggish strategy game-play associated with EA's series. With plenty of different buildings to choose from, lots and lots of environments to transform to your heart's content, and quite a few challenges to overcome, you'll be definitely challenged and stuck fast to the screen.
The gist of the game is simple, build as much as you can as fast as you can. You purchase empty plots of land, build your premises and rent or sell these for profit. Then, with the newly acquired cash, you get to buy bigger plots and develop bigger buildings for even bigger returns."
