So simple...yet somehow addicting

The Good
I can't quite put a finger on it, but something keeps me playing this game. Perhaps it's Santa flying across the sky on December 25th. Perhaps it's my Security prowling the building for a bomb. Maybe it's even the incessant sound of construction while putting my building up and up. All together, it's a very simple, but amusing game with very simple gameplay.

The Bad
The fact that I can never get my elevators to go above a certain point (which I forget offhand) has been a real puzzler, but that may just be me. I wish the game had a few more 'quirks' and such.

The Bottom Line
A simple hotel empire game as you struggle to make your vertical tenancy a success!

The Good
The concept of building a tower. The many different things you could build, e.g pubs, fast food places, cinemas. The challenge of the game

The Bad
The damn elevator and stair system. It was confusing

The Bottom Line
A fun game which is probably the best Sim title excluding of course Sim City(also 2000 +3000) and the Sims. Tower building for all ages
