    Hoyle Casino Empire 3.5

    Any resemblance that Hoyle Casino Empire bears to other Hoyle games is incidental. It has more in common with tycoon business sims than the conventional line of game packages that Hoyle usually delivers. You get a casino, build it up, and progress up the line for more challenges at other casinos. You start at Buddy’s […]

    Chris Sawyer’s Locomotion 3.5

    Back before Roller Coaster Tycoon rumbled onto hard drives everywhere, designer Chris Sawyer was fiddling with a follow-up to Transport Tycoon, his business and transportation sim, which had garnered a loyal following.
