Hotel Mogul - Building New Life
Developed and published by Alawar Games Hotel Mogul is a new strategy game with a very interesting story of a woman who tries to fight back her own business from her husband.
The game dowsn't add anything innovative to the genre but does offer a good option when choosing a casual game.
Lynette is the character you play as. You meet her in a very difficult period of her life when everything is falling apart...
Lynette is going through a divorce process from her husband after only a month of marriage. Not only the husband unexpectedly asks for a divorce, but he also wants to take her business according to the prenuptial agreement.
But our girl is not going to get all depressed and down because of the situation but rather start a new business plus find the way to get her old company back.
As the process of new life begins you are given a certain amount of cash, and a number of
materials and workers when you start. At the top of the screen, you can
also see your bank account, income, and guests, as well as your level
So what you do is you build all kinds of properties, repair and apgrade different structures. You can buy more materials and train more workers to accomplish that.
There are three types of structures you can build - hotel,
commercial, and service.
Hotels include any buildings where guests may
lodge, ranging from cheap campgrounds to posh hotels. Commercial
buildings generally increase the value of surrounding structures, like
gardens that improve the value of whole rows, and statues which greatly
improve the two adjacent properties.
Service buildings include the
construction mill, the real estate agency, and the museum.
Another option for you is to buy property on sale or sell yours. This part requires quick decision making becuase offers don't last forever and the value of any given property can change.
To motivate you to work harder, you have a basic income goal to meet,
but also have the chance to earn the expert score and beat the expert
time goal. You can replay levels to aim for these, adding some replay
value to the game.
The locations for you to work are interesting. There is Egypt,
Hawaii, and South America among them. Despite these drastic localities, the game
play remains the same in all. The production values are good, with
suitable sound effects and music, and attractive graphics.
