County Fair - Fun for All, Business for You!
The family of addictive tycoon games has been enlarged with County Fair - a carnival fair simulation which gives you really much freedom in game play and strategy of developing. Taking into consideration the festive atmosphere of the game, this one is a perfect choice for adding some mirth to your life.
Want to spend all your time at a fair? Work there!
It's a very sensible decision, especially if you are the only surviving relative of a dying businessman who wishes to leave the creation of his life - a carnival empire - to his own blood. Of course, you have nothing to do other than agree. And who wouldn't? Meet you teenage assitant, who'll teach you the basics, and start the fun!
For each level you are given a fair ground and some cash to start. And first you should do is hire some mechanics in order to assemble your rides and stands. Later you will also need sanitary workers, security and health workers who will deal with different force-majeures and prevent you from getting fined by corresponding authorities.
When you have enough staff you can start buying and building your attractions. The game offers quite a wide choice, including rides (Small, Medium and Large), food stands (whatever you would expect to find at a carnival), games (let your customers have every possible fun) and shows (indoor and outdoor for every visitor to enjoy). You have pretty much freedom in which to choose, unless you have a certain goal of acquiring a certain attraction, and you decide where you put your rides and stands in order to use your space most efficiently. of course, the more attractions you assemble, the more mechanics you'll need to assemble them, and the higher the profit!
Your work at the fair is not limited to choosing and placing attractions. You can also regulate the ticket prices for every single ride, show or item at a food stand and upgrade your stations to make them more attractive and, thus, profitable. There is also a possibility to advertise your fair or separate rides - you decide which advertising method to use and how much money to spend.
There is one very helpful option - reporting. You can track the performance of each station separately, including number of visitors, profit etc. Use the data in your management decisions - and success is guaranteed!
Besides offering a really engaging game play requiring a good portion of strategic thinking, County Fair features very pleasant and detailed visuals adding much to your game experience - you'll feel as you are at a genuine carnival! Time to go!
