In the last post we introduce you some challenging time-based management games for Android. Although that’s a fashion-type of management games, we can also find on the market Classic-like management games that fit with some of us, the nostalgic players of Sim City, Civilization and the 90’s tycoon games. Given that we don’t like showing you just packs of similar or identical games, this time, we’ve chosen four games that can be tagged as “classic” in three different ways: regarding graphics, gameplay, theme and business.
Game Dev Story: classic graphics, new business project
This is specially for nostalgic of 2D ultra-pixelated games. Actually, it reminds Habbo graphics, which isn’t that old, although it has been taking advantage of this simple isometric graphics for a long time. However, what you will have to manage is a Videogame developing startup, what goes beyond the typical restaurant or theme park management game. You will be the responsible of taking care of hiring your programmers, graphic designers and sound technicians in order to create a videogame able to sell one million copies. Thus, you will have to go deep even in marketing strategies while you try to build a kind environment in the office to avoid stress. Despite its 8bit-like graphics, there are lots of things to be taken into account. Challenging, addictive and inspiring. And that lovely NES-feeling.
Rock The Vegas: classic plot, new gameplay Building a city is a recurrent theme for management games. We’ve played dozens of them. We’ve even built a city of gambling and vice like Vegas several times. However, what we face here is a new gameplay. Actually, Rock The Vegas is a mix of a tycoon, city builder, gambling and social game for Android. Since the purpose is building a Vegas prototype, you don’t have to focus just on how it looks like and how inhabitable the city is. You have to have a comprehensive control over every single detail of what’s going on in there. What’s more, the game is social, what means you can add friends, visit their city to catch some ideas about how to manage your own Vegas. Rock The Vegas is backed by Paradise Island, My Country and other great management games, which makes it even more reliable. .
Smurfs’ Village: classic theme for a new platform
What if we rescue Smurfs from our childhood? Better, what if we start to interact with them instead of only watch them on TV? That’s what makes Smurf’s Village for Android so charming. The cartoon-based graphics are really good. You will feel like you really are surrounded by smurfs and afraid of Gargamel. You can control well known characters and resolve some quest. Most of this quest are mini-games that make the game even funnier. Build, collect wood, fruit and other supplies. Decorate it to your liking and be ready for a Gargamel’s visit. You can share your achievements via Facebook and also play offline. Despite the theme, Smurf’s village is for all audiences. You will get caught by it, we promise.
