Mansion Impossible is an action strategy Flash game in which the object is to make enough money to buy the millionaire's mansion and end the game, all within the quickest time possible.
To play, simply click on a house as it comes up for sale to buy it. You must have enough funds to cover the cost of the purchase. Hold onto is as long as its value increases, which is indicated by a small triangle next to its price. Sell the house to make a profit, which gives you additional funds for a more expensive property.
Begin by buying and selling the cheaper houses, which are furthest from the masion. Advance to more expensive areas as you can afford to do so. As soon as you are able to afford the millionaire's mansion at the end, click on it to end the game.
Analysis: The gameplay is simple and accessible and can be fun for an occassional diversion, though it is unlikely to hold your attention for long. The choice to have each home increase then decrease in value before being swept off the market altogether reduces the depth of the gameplay significantly. It might have been more interesting to allow the properties to increase and decrease randomly for an indeterminate period. Other influences affecting each home's market price might have also produced a richer game play experience.
Note: The high score mechanism does not function, or didn't for me at least. Post your best times in the comments.
