Do you remember the old classic arcade machines from way back when? Well, Flipper Mechanic does. This mechanic simulator provides players with the perfect opportunity to discover just how those things work. With a unique complexity rarely found in games, even those of its ilk, Flipper mechanic will provide all players with a unique experience that is tough to beat. If you are of the technical mind, then you’re going to love this. Let’s crack it open.
So, the gameplay is kind of broken into two main parts here. Like most of the sim games, Car Mechanic Simulator 2015, Thief Simulator, or House Flipper, the primary goal is to take on jobs, complete them and sell on the items for profit and this title is no different. Your objective is to source broken down old machines, crack them open, find out what’s wrong with them, source parts, to fix them, put them back together and sell them on for a profit. It’s like running your own little repair shop. It’s a cool little game that actually offers a fair amount to the player in regards of satisfaction.
Aha, I bet you thought that was all there was to it but you’ll be surprised to find that there’s only one way to find out of the arcade machine is working again or not and that’s to try it. That’s right, they heard you like games so they put a game in your game so you can game while you game. You can actually play the games on the machines to make sure that all the bells and whistles are functioning properly. It’s a little touch that they definitely did not have to put in but I’m really pleased that they did because it adds so much to the experience.
There is, as you would expect from titles like this, a considerable attention to detail in every single step of the process. Be it your workshop that you operate out of to the shops that you sell to. Most importantly, its in every section of the fixing process. When you first crack open the back of the machine, you’ll be greeted by all those wires and flashing lights, it won’t make much sense. Follow the instructions and experiment, you’ll find the way eventually.
Interestingly, they seem to have put several different types of machines in the game. It’s not just a space invader rip off or pinball for every machine, it’s a selection of titles all reminiscent of the era.
Another simulation title that scratches a peculiar but prevalent itch in many curious and technology minded people. I expect this will be quite a delightful title when it drops.
- Fantastic attention to detail
