Some games were meant to be played and enjoyed while others should just be covered up and never seen again, Youda Camper is one of those last types of game. The controls are not very intuitive and the peeps in the game are not very, shall we say, bright. They come to the gate asking for one tent and you give it to them and then all the sudden they are saying that is not what they were wanting at all. I know the customer is always supposed to be right but with this game it is rather unreasonable the way that they are. Another aspect of the game that is not very good for the player is that all the people coming to the gate are stacked up on one another so that when you grab one car to place with a tent you might actually get the other care instead. There is no way to lengthen the cue for the vehicles so you never know if you have it right or not.

Builder games should have some form of structure to them and not just randomly plopping down tent spaces with no concept of spacing or design. You can literally make the spaces so tight that a mouse would have trouble getting between them and you will still be able to play the game. Not very realistic where that is concerned. You can crowd the tents and objects and leave no space to move and still be considered a correct placement. You can’t make a proper parking area, you cant make proper camp areas like you would actually see at a camp ground. You just place the tents as fast as you can and hope that you have everything it needs within the required space and then hope that you put the right customer in the tent. I know I would never ever want to stay at a camp that was done in this manner.

The concept of the game is great but the execution of how it is done is not. You can’t close the park and build the areas the way you want and then open to receive customers. If you just ignore the cars then you get a bad rating and cant get the customers that you need to be able to continue with the game. I would love to try something like this game that was more like RollerCoaster Tycoon then what I was forced to deal with in this game. Heck RollerCoaster Tycoon gave you a 3D view of things, this one is top down only with no other way of looking at things. I would not recommend this game to anyone! Shame on Youda GAMES for even making this have baked game, this game is SOooo getting uninstalled!
