The 5 best games for iPhone and iPad of April 2018

Posted by Harry Slater on May 2nd, 2018

At the start of every month we like to take a look back at the games that have really caught our attention over the previous 30 or so days. We have a sit down, we have a long hard think, and we decide which of the interactive digital experiences we've poked our way through deserves to be included on our best of the month list.

There were some tough decisions to make about which games made it into the top five this month, let me tell you. Coffees were thrown, arguments were had. At one point there was a very real chance that a duel was about to ensue. But we got there in the end. Agree? Disagree? Fancy a duel? Let us know in the comments at the bottom of the article.

Project Highrise guide - How to get started on ground floor

Posted by Campbell Bird on April 13th, 2018

Project Highrise gives you a lot of tools and deep systems to grapple with while building the skyscraper of your dreams, but in doing so, it can be hard to know exactly where to start. As we dumped time into the game while reviewing it, we came up with this list of tips that should be good for getting you started with the game:

Builders can be finicky

The one constant in every Project Highrise building is the presence of a construction crew. These are the people that follow your directions when it comes to building new floors, installing apartments, outfitting offices, etc. They are the true key to your success in the game, but they aren’t always the easiest people to control.

Since you have no direct control over builders, they choose when to work and what to work on. The main things you need to know about their habits are that your builders generally work on projects in the order that you mark things for construction, and they won’t work tirelessly. Every once in a while they’ll want to take a break. Keeping these things in mind, make sure you build things in the order that you want them to go up and make sure you don’t wait to the last minute to build crucial additions to your building.

GDC 2015 - Project Highrise is an Interesting Idea from SomaSim

Posted by Rob Rich on March 3rd, 2015

You might know SomaSim best from their gold rush sim, 1849. Well, the developer is taking things to new heights (I apologize for nothing) with Project Highrise. It's still in the extremely early stages - as in concept sketches and not much else - but it sounds like it could be quite neat.

Project Highrise is a game about, well, managing a highrise building. You'll be taking care of businesses and residences, balancing your tenants' needs and comfort, and even taking a look at individual characters' feelings on various subjects (a-la games like RollerCoaster Tycoon). If that sounds a lot like SimTower, that's probably because the Maxis classic was a big inspiration.

Of course there's still a long road ahead for Project Highrise's development, and all sorts of stuff could be changed, added, or removed along the way. Still, the idea of it seems very interesting. We'll definitely be keeping you posted as we learn more.
