3.0 out of 5 stars New Game - Same Old Issues 8 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase
Well, I've gone ahead and bought this game because I liked the premise. I like these management simulator games quite a lot, and this one seemed right up my alley. Now, I freely admit, I have not clocked up much game-time with this game, because there keeps popping up with an error message during game-play, with some kind of memory exception. You hit 'okay', and the box keeps appearing to the point you are forced to Alt-F4 out of the game.

It does auto-save each 'day', so you don't loose all that much when it happens. Its just annoying.

Beyond basic programming glitching, which is true to form for Excalibur Games, the game isn't utterly awful. That being said, its not brilliant either. Its very basic, very rudimentary, and very easy to go "Okay, done that, now what?" 99% of the game is actually sitting there watching little bikes/vans zoom around the city, doing automated tasks, and bringing in money. You need Rep Stars to actually unlock things, which you get from doing priority deliveries, being the best company of the week, and 'achievement' style missions. Again, its very repetitive, and very dull. You will spend an inordinate amount of time just watching the ticker go by.

Graphics wise, its not that advanced. They're not hideous, but they're stuck in the late 90's early 00's. Any fans of Capitalism or Industry Giant will feel a sense of de-ja-vu looking at your 'city'. The 'strategic view' is reasonably helpful, but not in any real way that can help you with strategic planning.

In terms of gameplay, what little of it I've actually done before I got fed up of the constant crashes, its not bad at all. Its certainly educational in the realms of how the Postal system works.

1.0 out of 5 stars Complete Letdown 11 Mar 2014
By BeRo
I was so looking forward to this game, one of those titles that you keep an eye on the release date and get.

Unfortunately this game really disappointed me. Not so much the pathetic tutorial which was very hard to follow and required too much reading of text, or the graphics which are not very pleasing on the eyes, but the actual game mechanics were just so bizarre and very unintuitive. It made me think this game was made by a single person learning how to program a computer rather than be a realistic contender for a title that cost nearly ten quid to buy.

If you're looking for some kind of game for delivery of products, maybe a simulation of the big names like TNT, DHL or Royal Mail, or an updated version of Road to Riches, sadly this game isn't it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing simulation 24 July 2014
By Lucy Hargrave VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Disclaimer up front I love simulation games, seriously I may have a slight addiction, this one however was just dull. To be fair to the product there were some positives it loaded quickly and there weren’t any problems playing it on my macbook pro, apart from the fact a mouse is need because the right click button is essential to play the game.
So why didn’t I like this game?
Well for starters the tutorial was extremely long and completely unnecessary, the Post Master is hardly a complex game to play and yet the tutorial felt the need to tell you everything in microscopic detail, there were over a hundred stages and trust me they weren’t fun to play.
Therefore when I did start playing the game probably I was already disenchanted and really wasn’t in the mood. Since having received the game over a month okay I have only played it a couple of times. Also I know it is a cheap simulation game but I honestly felt the graphics could have been better. Just don’t buy this game, there are definitely better simulations out there and this should be avoided.

2 stars and mainly for ease of installation.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hum drum 27 Jun 2014
By Fiona Massey VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Same old sims based type game, the only difference is, this drove me absolutely mad with the slow, long winded, round the block and over the hill, play...even on the pc that is used for gaming, it's s.l.o.w....
seriously save your money, it's one of those games that even played on a rainy day, you'd go out in the rain to avoid playing it any longer

2.0 out of 5 stars Just ... awful ... 15 Jun 2014
By A. Cresswell TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
don't really know how to say this but it's just awful.
It's 82Mb in size and the graphics are very basic. It's a throwback to 15 years ago in terms of game play and graphics.
Originally I thought that perhaps this was a children's game but you realise quite quickly that there are many variable you need to manage and simply put there's no way anyone could succeed in this if not an adult.
I guess if I were looking for a really cheap game and wanted something I would spend weeks mastering and I didn't care about graphics , then this might be for me but to be fair at this price there are loads of games on STEAM that you can play to your hearts content. Although Steam does normally require an internet connection.
All in all it's too much of a time sink for very little reward. It's a shame really as someone spent a lot of time getting this to work well and the variables and things to line up ... but a POST OFFICE simulator? Really?

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun and charming 30 Jun 2014
By Zipster Zeus VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Well I've said in other reviews that I'm a bit of a sucker for Excalibur games. I actually like their off-the-wall simulation subjects and find the good value, pushing-the envelope-against-all-the-budget-constraints nature of their games charming.

So I'm one of those strange people willing to take the rough with the smooth when it comes to Excalibur and the daft premise of do you want to be a Post Master of a large town with a little red van...? well I think why the heck not it makes a change from shooting zombies, and so many hours of harmless fun ensue.

I know some people have playback and memory issues with some Excalibur games but I must say I have been lucky to escape them and for me, anyway, this games play well. I think you get a lot for your money and the graphics may be a bit 'retro' but again, that's all part of the charm. So if you fancy trying your hand as a postie [and finding out it's not as easy as you may first imagine] this is a great, fun way for the family to see if it can get the post delivered on time.
