    House Flipper is one of those titles that you just don't expect to be as good as it is. Seriously, play this videogame.

    It seems a little silly to gush about a video game that simulates housework but given the added amount of stress and anxiety that has crept into my life lately, House Flipper is a wonderful way to shut out the noise of the world for a little bit.

    This house-renovating simulator provides a satisfying sense of progression and realism. Its focus veers away from architectural and interior design, letting handiwork steal the spotlight.

    It is a niche title, but it can be a very fun game if you don't mind spending hours remaking houses and decorating them to your heart's content.

    House Flipper manages to scratch a specific itch, but it lacks long-term incentives and just generally feels like a missed opportunity. With more content, polish, interactivity, and customization, this could become a nice sleeper hit. It's serviceable as is, but it won't hold your attention for too long.

    House Flipper seems like a killer idea for a sim game, and while your first few sales deliver some of the before-and-after magic, the game fails to capture the larger remodeling fantasy. Empyrean has been delivering a steady stream of updates and improvements to House Flipper, but it’ll take a lot more elbow grease to get this fixer-upper ready for market.

More available houses, more handyman assignments, more buy-able assets. The simplest of landscaping features would be helpful as well. Another gripe is buyers wanting me to supply their bunker and buy food or turn down a house because it lacks a TV. Buy it yourself! Expand

    Si j’ai quitté le confort de mon canapé, avec bon nombre de console, des années durant, pour m’orienter vers l’univers de l’ordinateur, c’est pour avoir enfin la possibilité de jouer aux jeux de gestions, qui regorge plutôt sur cette plateforme, ce qui est le cas présentement de House Flipper.

    Je ne sais pas pourquoi lui précisément, peut-être pour me sentir un peu dans la peau à la fois de Valérie Damidot et de Stéphane Plaza, parce que oui, il y a de ça.

    En début de partie, je me familiarise avec le clavier/souris et je lance quelques missions, un peu en guise de tuto puisque très vite, je me rends compte qu’elles n’ont pas un grand intérêt. Alors, je me tourne vers l’achat, la rénovation et la revente immobilière. Ce que je constate rapidement, c’est que l’argent coule très vite à flot, simplement, sans grand effort.

    Côté gameplay, c’est fun, on décore comme bon nous semble, on casse un mur pour agrandir une pièce, on achète et installe de nouveaux objets (avec cependant un catalogue quelque peu léger), on répare une prise électrique défectueuse, on pose un nouveau plancher tout neuf, où un revêtement mural, bref, on rénove, on embellit, et c’est vraiment cool jusqu’à ce que, finalement, la monotonie du gameplay ne finisse par tôt ou tard prendre le dessus.

    Pour la durée de vie, les développeurs ont prévu beaucoup de maisons dans lesquelles bosser, offrant une excellente durée de vie, surtout avec l’arrivé du DLC (payant) Garden Flipper, permettant de s’occuper désormais des extérieurs en plus des intérieurs...

    House Flipper's only downfall is the lack of content. Most importantly, the catalogue leaves a lot to be desired; the variety in furniture is still quite lacking, and many houses easily end up looking quite samey with the sleek, Ikea-like designs. If I were to build a cozy little cottage for my grandma, I would probably be having a harder time. When it comes to the gameplay, just expect to do the same things over and over again. The game will NOT change the further you go (apart from getting some upgrades that make you, for example, clean faster), and it will be easy to feel like you have hit a wall after selling a few houses.

    Furthermore, I don't believe this game is ready for DLC. Considering how restrictive the game is in a creative sense when it comes to the base game, I do not find having to buy DLCs to receive tiny bits and pieces that you'd imagine would've been there already too pleasant.

    House Flipper isn't visually anything to write home about nor does it have compelling gameplay, but in all of its repetitiveness it is a comfortable time sink and definitely has potential. If the game receives more content in order to create more interesting houses and lessens some of the tediousness (e.g. being able to tile only one sliver of the wall at a time), it will absolutely become a much more satisfying and addictive cleaning/interior design simulator than it is now.

    I have no idea how you can rate this 10, it is stale, for the first 30 min at least (this was when I have up) you just collecting trash. yeaI have no idea how you can rate this 10, it is stale, for the first 30 min at least (this was when I have up) you just collecting trash. yea it sounds great to renovate houses and sell them, and being creative is usually fun, but not here, at all. it is full of bugs, it is weird. the aesthetic is confusing, for the most you have this nice colourfull texture, but at some times, some realistic just jumps out of the blue. YOU SHOULD STAY FAR AWAY FROM THIS GAME. Expand
