Holiday Island

Genre: Strategy    |     Year: 1997    |     Publisher: unknown    |     Developer: unknown
Game Review (written by Mod2611) Added on: 12/18/2006
Ever wanted to own you own holiday resort on your own island? Well, you have the chance. Holiday Island! You can build up almost everything between a hot dog stand and the most expensive hotel you have ever seen, hotels, parks; sabotage the opponent players, run advertisement campaigns and more. Manage your money situation and become a rich man. I played the holiday island the first time when I surfed in he internet and I was surprised how good the graphic and sounds are.
This is a challenging game, similar to most of the Sims games.
The game was developed by sunflowers a few years ago. It was one of the best games they ever had. You install the game without problems; it already works with simple requirements.
In the beginning you can choose between different islands, where you want to build up your hotel resort. You also can choose between mountains, rivers or only hills. Your goal is to make as much money as you can and pay the credit back you took out. You can build up to 60 different buildings. Small ones (tents, bungalow), hotels, different attraction (tennis courts, beach volleyball courts), shops, parks, airports where your tourists arrive and much more things.

You should always build your buildings close to a street, otherwise your tourist wonít be able to visit or use it. If a park only has a capacity of 75, only 75 people can be there. Very important is the capacity of harbors and airports to know how many visitors arrive. Because you are on an island, your visitors want to swim. Then you have to build bay watch-towers. Always build hot dog stand or bars other places to eat or drink, your visitors are hungry.
If you have enough money, you can destroy the reputation of the other players by character assassination, bombs, or shark attacks. But be careful your opponents can do the same.
After a certain time your game ends and they submit your claim. Your money, buildings, and visitors will be added and if you did well enough you might be on the high scores.
Holiday Island is a game which isnít boring at all. There are various different opportunities to play, because it is not expensive and the fun you have it is a very good game.
I recommend holiday island for nearly everyone in any age, who likes structure games, it is great fun and easy to learn. Try it.

I really like this game! It's old, but so much fun. I just keep playing it. And it's probably so much fun to play, because it's so simple. I just like games in which you have to build cities and stuff like that.

One of the most enjoyable sim games Iíve found. I find it relatively easy to use and highly addictive. It is simpler than Sim City but still a lot of fun.
