IN THIS TOWN ANYTHING GOES.
You can’t rise to the top without taking a few others down. If that means engaging in a workplace accidents, dodgy deals, and a shifty trick or two then so be it! You're going to need every trick in the book if you want to go from small-time slumlord
to property tycoon
, you take on the role of a budding property tycoon who must do battle with your competitors to create a thriving and profitable city...in ANY way you see fit!
Build houses and factories, cope with the incessant demands of your tenants as well as keeping a whole bunch of UNDESIRABLE characters
under control! This ‘colourful’ group of degenerates can also be used against the competition with humorous and catastrophic effect!
After all, it's time you stopped playing by the rules and did things your way, and who knows you might even get away it, too! Have you ever looked at your rival's town and thought "That's quite a nice property you've got there. Mind if I take it?" Well, stop looking and send your trusty Foreman
over to rip up the fence panels! Soon enough, you'll find yourself the proud owner of a previously used property - no deposit necessary! Sell it out from under your rival's nose for a quick profit or place your own tenant inside it for long-term gain. Of course, if you're not so interested in what the property can do for you but more about what it can do to your rival then simply let it fall into disrepair. Soon enough it'll become infested and eventually explode... hopefully taking out a few of your rival's men or properties with it!
CRIME IS YOUR GREATEST TOOL.
If all else fails, call in the Mob… Send your Gangsters
around to take out your rival's most important properties, or hit their people to thin their ranks before you move in for the finishing blow. The more they kill the better the weapons your Gangsters will be able to access including but not limited to pistols and the devastating laser! A force to be reckoned with if ever there was one.
Of course, if you've got cold feet and dealing with the Mob isn't your cup of tea you can also hire the services of various undesirables
to do your bidding. Show your rival's just how much you really care by sending Mr Fixit over to provide 'assistance' with one of your rival's properties. If you'd prefer to just watch the carnage unfold send the happy-go-lucky chainsaw wielding Psycho over to carve up your rival's investments, and maybe just about anyone who tries to stop him!
Just watch that whilst all this is happening that you don't forget about the latest nagging from the Council or it might just be closing time... for good!
Just when you thought you'd earned yourself a tea break... Boom! The Council
are on your back about some issue or another, and if you don't keep them happy you'll either lose some of your hard-earned investment properties or risk being closed down
. Permanently. Keep them happy, though, and you'll be rewarded with special marks that can be sold for a quick cash injection, or as a way of staying in good with the Council as you proceed to ignore every one of your tenant's incessant demands. Treat your tenants well, though. In Constructor they're not only your most important form of income, you're going to need them if you want to breed additional children to one day join your workforce. This is especially true if you want to stay ahead because you'll need all of the help you can get to ensure that your factories continue churning out resources, gadgets, and of course industrial pollution.
If you think you've got what it takes to be successful in the world of Constructor then put on your hard-hat and start digging. You've got tenants to please, rent to collect, and rivals to keep guessing. After all it's your town... so deal with it!

The ever-present Council will keep you hard-pressed as it periodically harasses

Law enforcement helps you protect your investments from your rivals. If you're feeling a little more unlawful then consult with the Mob and create Gangsters of your own to deal with the problems directly.

demands and quirky personalities. From slovenly Slobs up to the snobby Sloanes you'll have no shortage of unfortunate residents to charge exorbitant rental fees!
