About This Game:
Your job as the architect and developer is to build world-famous skyscrapers that will be the envy of the entire city, masterpieces of art and engineering. But a skyscraper is more than just steel and glass, it's an intricate ecosystem, full of people that live and work in the building. They become a complex machine that needs your steady hand to keep it running smoothly and efficiently.
From the moment you break ground, every decision rests with you. As the architect you must coordinate the construction of everything - every wall and wire, every office and apartment. As the building owner you must keep your tenants happy - and paying rent on time. As a savvy developer you must keep an eye on the bottom line and invest in the future. Succeed and you will reap the rewards of a prestigious address where everyone will clamor to live and work. Fail and you will watch tenants leave in disgust, taking their business elsewhere and leaving your reputation in tatters.
Will you create an exclusive office highrise that attracts business leaders from around the world? Will you construct luxury apartments in the sky, penthouses for the elite and playgrounds for the famous? Perhaps greed will get the better of you and you'll build a tenement building that trades tenant happiness for loads of cash? All these choices and more are yours. Success is entirely in your hands.

Project Highrise has you managing and building your own tower and the businesses and apartments within. You will have to choose the kind of things that you want built while running different utilities such power, water, gas, etc to the new thing being built and you will need maintenance people to keep everything operating smoothly. Certain business will want to grow over time and will want other businesses in your tower to help with that. The game offers a sandbox mode as well as some objective based scenarios for you to attempt. Money is one of the most important things that you can have in the game but there are other useful things that can help you, these things are prestige, influence, and buzz. Prestige means you have a higher quality tower and will have access to more impressive features and businesses. Buzz is used for many things such as marketing campaigns and things that can improve the happiness of your tenants. Influence is probably the most interesting as it can be used to acquire consultants that will help you in various ways, they might allow for different upgrades, increasing productivity, giving you more options for expanding your building, etc. It's a fun game and it is enjoyable seeing your tower expand and become more prestigious. Downsides come down to a lack of in depth information about potential problems once demands start becoming more common and how to solve them and that the visual style can appear somewhat bland. Worth a look for anyone interested in these kinds of games.
Project Highrise is a must buy If you grew up in the 90s and played games like Yoot Tower and Sims Tower. Since then, there hasnt been any games to fill their place till now. Project Highrise is an excellent reboot of the genre and its influences are clearly derived from Yoot and Sims Tower. It has excellent gameplay, and nice graphics which are undoubtedly an ode to SimTower. Project Highrise is an excellent casual tower simulator in its own regards. The biggest problem is the balance of money management. There is no significant fail mechanic, nor are you ever penalized so heavily that you feel like you really do need to restart. Unfortunately, there is no sandbox mode so you can?t just be creative and do everything. Instead, you have to unlock everything slowly. The problem of course is that time is very slow in the game. You cant speed up time by more than 2x which can really make the waits in-between loans, etc become tedious and boring. Regardless, its an amazing game that harks back to those classic games, Yoot Tower and Sims Tower.
