The trouble with this game is it was clearly made with a budget. "OK Developer Person, you can have 50 items for people to play with and no more." And thats a shame. It means that we have a really nice cheery row of different coloured and well constructed tents, but only one dull dusty pathway. No paving, no patios , no roads and no tarmac. We have some finely detailed booths for coffee and icecream, and a dinky little table and chair set. But we have no cafes, no chips, no hot dogs or in fact anywhere these people can eat. We have a booth selling trinkets and a smashing boat hire place, but no shops not even somewhere to buy bread and milk. The playground equipment looks cute and has some nice animation, but it looks odd plonked down on a bit of dusty path.
Every aspect of the game is nicely done but there is not ENOUGH STUFF. My park looked dull with untidy sand paths and one type of square flower bed. The little people run amusingly for cover when it rains, but there are no events or challenges just the usual run of the mill economic quests.
I know its not The Sims. I know it doesn't cost forty quid a pop and it is a simple budget game, but if they had let the Developer Person have a bit more leeway it could have been good instead of lame. Going by the finely detailed things that they have allowed in, the other things would have been good too.
Its dull, but its easy to play and younger children might enjoy it for a while but it wont take long before they get very bored.
It seems "clunky" to play, with an unusual counterintuitive gameplay interface.
I have some experience in computer programming and this feels and looks like something built in a use-at-home application, in fact I was rendering graphics similar to this on to user defined shells as complicated as this, if not more so, at least 10 years ago.
I really like the idea of this game, I love time-management, scenario based business games; so I will persevere with it, and maybe once I get the "knack" of how it handles I'll end up loving this game too, but for the time being; I'm not overly impressed.
Camping Manager is a budget game by price and by quality, but it is not the worst Tycoon game I've played. That said Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 is now costs next to nothing and is en every way a better game. With a bit more effort and content, and maybe even a little humor (like in Theme Hospital), Camping Manager could have been good-maybe even great.
I say half decent, but there are some caveats. This game is not going to keep and adult entertained for instance - but if you have a young child (and particularly if you have ever taken them on holiday to Butlins or Centre Parks etc.) it's perfect.
You're basically the manager of a campsite which you have to build up as a business. You start off with tents but eventually be able to buy caravans and chalets for your guest. You'll have to hire staff such as cleaners and gardeners and, all in all, it's just right for children around the the ages of 5-10.
I think think Excalibur's dedication may have paid off and they've maybe found their niche. They should stop with the rubbish games like Streetw Sweeper Simulator and Tow Truck simulator 3 and dedicate their time to these sort of strategy based games aimed squarely at kids. It's potentially and new area of gaming and one they seem to do quite well.
On the downside though, it is very limited. You can't do much with it and you get bored with it very quickly. I have used many apps and facebook games that are more addictive.
Overall, this is a good idea but it does not have enough in it to sustain interest.I recommend it for a child but this game needs developed to work in the adult market.

This is quite a limited game for modern expectations. It's great in it's own way, nice graphics. But very limited purchase opportunities so the levels are very, very similar. Read morePublished 17 months ago by TLM
