What GameHouse Players Said:

“Build-A-Lot 1 was good, but I’m glad for the improvements in Build-A-Lot 2. More to do to build houses, plus the oil refineries, recycle centers and playgrounds. It’s a challenge to get through all the levels at the top, but that’s what makes it fun and good for replay! If you like Time Management games, the Build-A-Lot series is something different and fun.”

“I found this game very interesting and fun. It requires some strategy thinking and the fact that you have more than 4 “suits” makes it even more challenging. Having the mini-games included along with the storyline makes it even more fun. It never gets boring. I would highly recommend this game.”
