Ever wanted to know what it is like to drive a bus? Ever wanted to know what it would be like to try and keep a scheduled while transporting people all over town? If so that this is going to be the game for you. Bus Driver puts you behind the wheel of your very own bus so that you can experience it for yourself. The game plays like most driving games but instead of just speed to worry about you also have real word obstacles and rules that must be followed to be able to get the job done and done right. There is traffic to deal with, red and green lights and almost impossible turns to make at times that give you a real appreciation for what a real bus driver has to deal with. This is not an easy game but it is fun to play.

I had played similar games to Farm Tribe before, and although they can become addictive once you get far along into the game, getting started can be rough. This game started off slow moving while I was trying to get my new workers into place. As Anny, the daughter of an archeologist whom is searching for some Mayan mysteries, you take over the farm in the jungle that is going to fund Father’s research. You grow crops, and gather berries to make products for the local restaurants at the resorts at the nearby beaches, but meanwhile, hold back some of your products to take care of your workers in not only foods, but using funds to make your little farming community comfortable and a great place to not only work, but live.

This is a real estate and time management game that really is fun to play. You are a real estate and building project planner that has to take and make sure that the properties are bought and sold as well as maintained. You don’t want them to fall apart while you are trying to make money. You even get to own and operate stores like that of the Pizzeria, Grocery Store and even Hotels to bring in tourists into the area. You can even buy up the houses of famous people to earn extra money. Even though you are building and buying all these places that is not everything, your cities still need beauty so make sure that you add in decorations here and there as it will raise your property values as well as the decoration value of the map that you are on.
