    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.

    Am I going mad, why on Earth would I be cleaning up virtual garbage and painting walls? Well, the mad part is debatable, but House FlipperAm I going mad, why on Earth would I be cleaning up virtual garbage and painting walls? Well, the mad part is debatable, but House Flipper being fun definitely isn't. I've spent far too many hours cleaning and selling houses, my wife reckons I should be doing it for real, on our own house. I'm disabled and spend much of the day in bed. This game has given me a great way to pass time and not having to worry about being shot or completing something by the clock.

    No time limits, plenty to do and let your imagination run free. I recommend it for anyone from 7 to 97. And I've never spilled a drop of paint on the carpet or furniture. You can go flippin' mad as well. Grab a copy of House Flipper and find your hidden talents. Just don't let your wife know you're a good painter / decorator.

    This is a great game if you're the kind of person that will enjoy it, however if you don't, you may find it incredibly boring.
    That being the satisfaction and addiction of cleaning up dirty houses, painting walls, fixing things and adding furniture into an empty house.

    + Slow paced game, you can do everything at your own speed
    + Good variety in what you can do
    + Some pretty cool houses / easter eggs you can buy
    + Good graphics
    + Kind of has a progression system
    + Addicting and very satisfying if you're into it
    + Great price, especially discounted

    - Some sound effects are a bit off / out of sync
    - Performance isn't the best

    House Flipper is a game for creative people who do not enjoy doing boring chores in real life but will gladly take out the trash or cleanHouse Flipper is a game for creative people who do not enjoy doing boring chores in real life but will gladly take out the trash or clean windows in a video game.

    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
