Construct a new eatery, shop or apartment block. Spend the immediately available upgrade points on improvements. Now forget about it and move on. Tycoon games should involve some risk, some planning and some problem-solving. This one doesn't. You'll never get to manage a business empire; you just acquire one.

TCNY might not give you much of an insight into what it takes to be a real-life real-estate mogul, but it does give you a pretty good idea of what geezers like Donald Trump see when they glance out of their penthouse windows. This is the best-looking and the most evocative Tycoon City game ever.
