Just like all the other build-a-lots...
same game play
the only twist is the graphics
they are supposed to be scary
but no matter how they dress it up it is still the same old game as the first!
oh and u get ... achievements big woo...
i have the 1st 3 and always got stuck on a level and no matter how i would work them could not pass it...
but don't let me put u off if u love the series this will add another replica to your collection.
i gave it 3 stars because nothing special about this game
just a revamp.

I usually love the Build-a-Lot games but I feel the team has missed an opportunity to produce a top class game here. I played it through to the end but didn't find the story-line or the challenge level as enjoyable as in others from this series.. There is no 'mystery' - simply a few rather obvious characters from traditional horror stories: vampire, werewolf, witch etc. There are clues to find but they don't lead to anything other than a paragraph from one of the characters to read. The houses themselves feature 'creepy' upgrades like secret rooms and blood-stained chest freezers but this is not continued to the end; the final house - the mansion - has fairly ordinary upgrades. The building and selling challenges are very familiar although I enjoyed the new strategy of achieving minus appeal! I wouldn't recommend starting with this one but go for it if you're a die-hard fan.

Awwwwwwww DONT WRECK BUILD A LOT!!!
I liked Build A Lot just as it was, Powersource was the best. I dont like all the murder mystery theme that seems to run though the small game industry as it is so for me that was a turnoff to see that Build A Lot were trying to hook onto that theme. Yuck! Hate the music etc on this game - its just random. Wont be buying the full version

Game ok, but that's it
The "build a lot" games have not evolve since the firsts. I loved the first ones, but this one is just an ok game with not very good visuals and storyline uninteresting.

Same Bal Game, Horrible Storyline
I know that dark storylines are the "in" thing right now but I don't like them. It was such a stretch and there was no mystery. What was the point? Same old game and nice to revisit the concept but hope the next one has a more interesting storyline.

Graphics were great. Story line had amazing potential.
It wasn't very long though. when I went into casual play, it was vey limited as well.
They could have done so much more with this one!
While I don't regret getting it, it was a let down. :(

Ok Time Management
As good as the other build a lot games but way to short - expect a bit more game time for my money.

fun but the same as the original
I tried so many variations of this game but the original still the best of all ! The game is ok ..

Only Buy On Sale
I love the Build A lot Games so I bought it without demo..sorry I did because the levels get hard quick in the game and the game is very short..

It's too negative - started out as fun, but ends up being too dark and not so funny + it's close to impossible to win the last part of the game
