House Flipper is actually a game I downloaded because I thought it would be something my wife would enjoy. I have a feeling that those who enjoy the home creation side of The Sims are going to have a really awesome time with this. There are a ton of house flipping TV shows these days and I have often watched them and thought “I can do that” and now thanks to this game I have the chance to prove that.
Money, Money And More Money!
The ultimate goal of House Flipper is to become rich by flipping your properties. You buy a run-down place; you fix it up and then you sell it for hopefully a ton of profit. I know that I am making this sound incredibly easy and simplistic, but there is actually a lot of depth to what you have to do in this game. You are basically a one-person renovation crew and everything rests on you! You need to purchase your property, but at first, you have only so much money to spend. Most of the properties are kind of gross and need some major TLC and that is where your first real “job” comes into play.
Bring In The Wrecking Crew
Most of the houses that you will purchase in the game need some heavy-duty maintenance done on them before you can even think about painting walls or adding decorations. You have various tools and parts that you can use to make repairs to things like the electrics as well as more structural things like the walls.
You also have to do a lot of cleaning. Sometimes you go into a house and it is full of cockroaches and is just as filthy as the local dump. You need to roll yourselves up and get to work tidying things up.
Your House Your Way
While you can play the game any way you want. You do have the confines of a budget to work with. So, while you may want to buy the finest kitchen countertops and the nicest oak floor. You have to factor in that you are here to make a profit and the more money you spend on renovating the house the higher the risk, you will not make as much profit!
This is a bit of a risk/reward kind of thing and one that can take a while to get the hang of. I can say that the actual designing of the houses is a lot of fun and I was impressed with how many different things there were for you to use to make each house different. The game has a smart progression system. As you make more money, you can get new tools, house items, and techniques that you can use to help build your house flipping empire!
I was very impressed with House Flipper. I got this for my wife to enjoy, but I have put a ton of time into it. I was surprised at just how easy it was to get into. While you can just screw around and design house. Trying to work within a budget and make fat stacks of cash so you can buy more houses to renovate and then flip is a lot of fun indeed.
- Designing houses is fun
- Wrecking houses and cleaning them is cool too!
- Lots of different design options
- You have to work as a handyman
- It is way more addictive than you would think
- I really wish they would embrace the modding community
- Some might struggle to work within the allocated budget!
