This is definitely the best postal business simulator out there right now. It is, of course, the only postal business simulator out there. Clearly, if you (or your children) have a thing for running a post office buying this is the given - for those who generally enjoy sim games and are interesting in a new additional to the library - it might be worth reading on.
This is a fairly straightforward tycoon game. Build a post office, complete with staffing choices, decisions on transport types and which facilities to purchase. You also need to consider the locale, which develops over time, and in which you can build extra postal facilities to aid your blooming empire. So, plenty of choices to keep city/business builders happy. As with most tycoon games, it is a case of rinse and repeat, with growing complexity. To aid your decision making processes there are a few basic reports and graphs providing direction.
The text used is a poor choice though, A 3d shadowed font which is tough to read has been used and I found by the end of the tutorial it was tough to concentrate. Fortunately, once the the tutorial is complete there was no further blocks of text.
Whether the game offers much longevity will be down to the interest in the source material. It's a fresh business tycoon game, which is simple to get in to, yet offering plenty of scope for expansion. Relatively simple graphics and sound don't hinder the sim and ensure great compatibility with laptops and older systems. It is also available on Steam, although this review is for the physical media version.
