A fun game!
I liked crackin' out on this one, but it is quite easy once you get the ball rolling. A few things; the skill pop-up gets quite annoying once you have already maxed out. Which in the challenging mode happened only a decade or so in, there is a bug in the saving somehow, at one point I was able to buy a mansion and retain the money I spent on it when reentering from continue. The losing of the game when running into debt kinda sucked because I was doing real well but spent too much money on repairs. It seems silly that a multiple home owner would give up because he or she is 20 dollars short. The random events like the earthquakes are okay, but it would be nice to have a beneficial random event.
Overall I like the gam. It could use some fleshing out to make it more fun.
