grinnypWho knew that something as boring as real estate management would make a good time management game? Hipsoft, the creators of the wildly successful Build-a-Lot series, did, and boy were they right! The latest installment in the series, Build-a-Lot 4: Power Source, has arrived, bringing with it the same balanced and challenging gameplay with a brand new theme: energy efficiency.

buildalot4a.jpgAll of the Build-a-lot games are built on the same premise: to develop a neighborhood with homes, shops, services, etc. while keeping an eye on resources like time, labor, building materials, and money. This makes for an entertaining and occasionally frantic time management game, attempting to meet all the needs of the community within a certain timeframe. Build-a-Lot 4 continues the same idea but adds something new and timely — dealing with the crumbling infrastructure of an aging and near-capacity power grid.

Gameplay in Build-a-Lot 4 is easy: you receive instructions from a mayor (or other source) in what the community needs. Simply click on a colored empty lot, select a structure, make sure you have the resources, and build. It is up to you to figure out how to provide those needs within a certain time-limit and budget. Should you concentrate on infrastructure first? Or build homes to increase your income? The permutations multiply with each level you move up as the demands from the communities become increasingly complex. Each community is a small, self-contained challenge which is kept track of in your handy-dandy day-planner (recycled from the "passport" of Build-a-Lot 3). Play one small campaign at a time or spend hours plowing through the multiple and escalating challenges.

In Build-a-Lot 4, the first and most important thing you need to track is available energy. Before you build a single thing you must assess the available power structure and add to it if necessary. This adds a layer of complication to the basic Build-a-Lot dynamic due to the fact that if you add a house or business without taking into account power needs, the entire neighborhood will black out. And since you cannot collect rent or money from businesses during a blackout, you need to fix the situation, fast!

Modern, so-called "clean" energy facilities are available to build, but watch out, like all complicated technology they can break down, causing wide-spread blackouts. Houses can be improved with up to three levels of energy efficiency, reducing the strain on the grid. The bigger the structure, the more drain on your power plants. Wind farms produce the least amount of energy but have the smallest negative footprint. Nuclear plants will produce the most energy, but have a correspondingly massive negative impact on the community. Who wants to live next to Three Mile Island?

buildalot4b.jpgAnalysis: HipSoft has wisely kept the same basic game structure as the first three games of the series. If it ain't broke, don't fix it! As always new houses, facilities, and shops have been added for variety. There's no appreciable difference in the backgrounds from the third in the series (perhaps the walking paths are an exception) but no matter. The core of the game is to develop, develop, develop. Also retained from the previous game are the weather patterns, which still affect gameplay. Rain slows down outdoor construction, such as building or painting, and if it rains a lot in your community, perhaps a solar power plant is not the way to go.

A few layers of complexity have been stripped from the series' ongoing formula, dropping some aspects introduced by Build-a-Lot 3 and leaving more basic dynamic from the first two games. This allows the complexity added by the challenges of the power grid to fit snugly in the game without destroying the casual gameplay we love so dearly. And what complexity it is! A new occupation has been added to the workforce: the energy technician. Only technicians can repair power plants, make homes energy efficient, or supercharge a plant. They need their own support structure — a Tech Center — for training. Now instead of managing one labor force (construction workers) you are managing two. Twice the fun! In a Union-approved sort of way, of course.

Build-a-Lot 4 is, like the previous games, is divided into a Main Campaign (with the tutorial blessedly broken out as a separate, skippable unit) and a Casual Campaign, with two new ones added: a Challenge and an Expert Campaign, definitely for folks who have first mastered the basic levels. Although you are on a deadline, the pacing is such that this is one of the more relaxed time-management games, at least in the early levels. Casual gameplay at it's finest.

All in all, Build-a-Lot 4 is a fast-paced, entertaining time management game. Never mind the collapsed real estate market, get out there and build!

Build a lot 4: Power Source

General

  • You can replay every level by using the"Planner", in which your current achievements are displayed.

  • The costs for energy-savers are the same as the costs for upgrading a house.

  • There are two ways, you can use the low-ball offer to make profit.

  • 1. You want to sell a house, but there is already another one of the market, which means, you will get less for your house. Make a low-ball offer, which will not be accepted (except there are two other house of the same kind for sale as well), the house goes off the market and you will get the full amount.

  • 2. A house comes on the market. You already own tow houses of the same kind. Put up your houses for sale, make a low-ball offer for the other one. It will be accepted. Unlist your houses again.

Level 4

Goal: 11 Georgians, 8 Craftsmans, +200 Appeal

  • In the moment, you build the Nuclear reactor, you need to have a side lot for it. The lot next to the Nuclear Reactor hast to be an Amphitheater before you demolish the Nuclear Reactor at the end of the level.

  • Try restart, till you get a scene, where you already own one of the 6 side lots.

  • Its hard to reach the Speedy time here. So make sure, you know exactly what you do and do not waste time. Also you do not have much money. Make sure to buy what you need, not more, not less.

  • Sell each of the three A-Frames you own as quickly as you can, for full price.

  • While selling the A-Frames, build a Condo. Sell it, as soon as you sold all A-Frames. Do not paint the Condo.

  • Keep the Georgians inspected to avoid repairs.

  • Once you have at least 5 Georgians collecting rent, build the Garden Center and start landscaping everything.

  • You also have enough cash to buy all properties coming up on the market.

  • Once you have 10 Georgians, start on the Craftsmans. Just build them as quickly as you can. Just remember you still need to build the 11th Georgian also.

  • Paint the first 3 Craftsman, but you don't need to paint the last 3.

Goal: 1 Hydro Turbine, 1 Fancy Grocery Store, $10.000.000, 12 painted A-Frames

  • Have a look at the scene while building the first house. You will build 2 Nuclear Reactors, Recycling Center and Workshop first. As more of this you can place next to expensive houses as better for you. You will be pretty short in cash and every dime you can save while buying all buildings will be helpful.

  • In this level, you need to have at the beginning the right possibilities: On the top are 1 single lot and two double lots. The single lot, you will need for a Solar Tower, one of the double lots for a workshop and the Boutique.

  • As you want to have the Solar Tower and at least the Workshop early in the level, the single lot should be owned by you and at least one of lot of one of the double lots. The other one shouldn't be bigger than an A-Frame or Duplex. Without this constellation you will not be able to make the level in Speedy.

  • Also: To reach the appeal goal it is necessary, that you will have the middle and the low row build as followed:

Level 7

Goal: 2 Solar Towers, 9 Apartments, Appeal 100+, Rent $500,000

  • There are three very important things in this level: The first is, that you will have to place during the level three Solar Towers next to each other, in a way, that you start on a side lot. The third Solar Tower will be removed later and you have to build a house instead. But because of the appeal goal, you can only afford one house getting a negative appeal because of the Towers.

  • Second: You will keep the Workshop nearly to the end of the level and replace it by a Amphitheater. So make sure, that you place the Workshop between two houses.

  • Third: Do things in the right order - You can't afford to demolish one of the buildings to earlier, that will cost you speedy. And you can't afford to be in the beginning or middle of the level to long without energy. At the end, it is ok, as you have more than enough cash and only need to add Energy Savers to get the power back and win the level.

I like this game but I find it more difficult then the other 3 versions simply because you have to use both power sources and buildings which add up to a lot of negative points. So if you have to maintain a nice village with a 90+ rating along with over 100,000 rent you really are going to have problems. Because you have to build recreation plots and more then a few condos or housing that is more expensive, which need more power. So you are going to run out of plots to build on. There is a lot of buying selling and demolishing. I am stuck on level 29. Where you need 8 duplexes, along with three supercharged turbines which means you have to buy houses on the the water and knock them down, to build the power sources. Then build a tech center to train the techs. And at the last moment you have to make the duplexes landscaped. I already built a condo and sold it. Duplexes generate little money so it is hard to pay for the houses you have to buy to make space for the 3 turbines and the tech center and now the garden center. Plus the houses you have to buy to knockdown to make some of the duplexes. So I love this game but it is very difficult halfway through.

Do you know about the low-ball trick, you should use as often as possible?

A house comes on the market. You already own two houses of the same kind. Put up your 2 houses for sale, make a low-ball offer for the other one. It will be accepted. Unlist your houses again. Now you can sell the purchased one for the full price. Or having a cheaper house. As bigger the house, as higher the profit.

For level 29 try this solution:

Level 29

Goal: 3 supercharged Hydro Turbines, 8 Duplexes, 8 landscaped Duplexes

  • Train a worker.

  • Build a Hydro Turbine and buy in the meanwhile the max. at material.

  • Build two Georgians and sell them.

  • Build a Tech Center.

  • Buy the other two lots where you can build a Hydro Turbine and build them.

  • Train one technicians and supercharge your three Hydro Turbines (2 Technicians each)

  • If one of the Hydro Turbines do need to be repaired, you will have to train to more Technicians, but I played three times, it never happened. So save the money unless it is really needed.

  • Buy the Duplexes, coming up on the market.

  • Buy A-Frames, demolish them and build Duplexes instead.

  • Demolish your Tech Center and build a Gartencenter instead.

  • Landscape all 8 Duplexes.

Greetings, Kayleigh

Hello, I'm really enjoying the build-a-lot series.
Pls help me get enough money at level 34....

How to beat level 34

Build a Solar Tower.
Train a worker.
Build a Georgian and sell it.
Build a second Solar Tower.
Buy and demolish cheaper houses.
Build four Georgians, sell one of them.
Build a third Solar Tower.
Build two more Solar Towers.
Build a Tech Center.
Supercharge the Solar Towers and train three technicians.
Demolish the Tech Center.
Build one Georgian and sell it.
Build one Grocery Store.
On the right side of the river there should be by now five Solar Towers and one empty lot. On the left side there should be a Hydro Turbine (you should built it now, by replacing the Georgian on this lot), 2 empty lots, Georgians and the Grocery Store.
Keep juggling with your three Georgians by buying and selling them with the low ball-offer option.
When you have ~$3,200,000 sell your Georgians and demolish the shop.

Why do you not have a walkthrough for this game yet?

[Edit: It's taking us longer to prepare than usual as this game is a bit more difficult than the previous games in the series. Please be patient, we'll have one up soon. -Jay]

Build a lot 4: Power Source

General

  • You can replay every level by using the"Planner", in which your current achievements are displayed.

  • The costs for energy-savers are the same as the costs for upgrading a house.

  • There are two ways, you can use the low-ball offer to make profit.

  • 1. You want to sell a house, but there is already another one of the market, which means, you will get less for your house. Make a low-ball offer, which will not be accepted (except there are two other house of the same kind for sale as well), the house goes off the market and you will get the full amount.

  • 2. A house comes on the market. You already own tow houses of the same kind. Put up your houses for sale, make a low-ball offer for the other one. It will be accepted. Unlist your houses again. Now you can sell the purchased one for the full price. As bigger the house, as higher the profit. Or having a cheap house.

  • Do not paint or landscape houses while it is raining, if it is not necessary. While rain, the workers will be much slower.

  • There is a sound that warns you when the construction of a new building will exceed the currently available amount of power.

  • Additional to the Build-a-lot 1,2 and 3 games, where you didn't get rent, when a house is up for sale, is under upgrading or repair, you will here do not receive rent, when there is a blackout.

Hello all,
I love all the installments of BAL but I am having trouble with this one!
I completed the main campaign and got a continue to the next campaign thing to click, so I continued to what I thought was the challenge campaign.
It says challenge campaign! BUT when I saved to quit for the night and started the next day, I was forced to start at that screen again and redo all I had done the night before. I tried several times to save my progress, but no luck! And the challenge campaign is locked. What did I miss or do wrong?

Level 4

Goal: 11 Georgians, 8 Craftsmans, +200 Appeal

  • In the moment, you build the Nuclear reactor, you need to have a side lot for it. The lot next to the Nuclear Reactor hast to be an Amphitheater before you demolish the Nuclear Reactor at the end of the level.

  • Try restart, till you get a scene, where you already own one of the 6 side lots.

  • Its hard to reach the Speedy time here. So make sure, you know exactly what you do and do not waste time. Also you do not have much money. Make sure to buy what you need, not more, not less.

  • Keep the Georgians inspected to avoid repairs.

  • Once you have at least 5 Georgians collecting rent, build the Garden Center and start landscaping everything.

  • You also have enough cash to buy all properties coming up on the market.

  • Once you have 10 Georgians, start on the Craftsmans. Just build them as quickly as you can. Just remember you still need to build the 11th Georgian also.

  • Paint the first 3 Craftsman, but you don't need to paint the last 3.

Goal: 1 Hydro Turbine, 1 Fancy Grocery Store, $10.000.000, 12 painted A-Frames

  • Have a look at the scene while building the first house. You will build 2 Nuclear Reactors, Recycling Center and Workshop first. As more of this you can place next to expensive houses as better for you. You will be pretty short in cash and every dime you can save while buying all buildings will be helpful.

  • As you want to have the Solar Tower and at least the Workshop early in the level, the single lot should be owned by you and at least one of lot of one of the double lots. The other one shouldn't be bigger than an A-Frame or Duplex. Without this constellation you will not be able to make the level in Speedy.

  • Also: To reach the appeal goal it is necessary, that you will have the middle and the low row build as followed:

Level 7

Goal: 2 Solar Towers, 9 Apartments, Appeal 100+, Rent $500,000

  • There are three very important things in this level: The first is, that you will have to place during the level three Solar Towers next to each other, in a way, that you start on a side lot. The third Solar Tower will be removed later and you have to build a house instead. But because of the appeal goal, you can only afford one house getting a negative appeal because of the Towers.

  • Second: You will keep the Workshop nearly to the end of the level and replace it by a Amphitheater. So make sure, that you place the Workshop between two houses.

  • Third: Do things in the right order - You can't afford to demolish one of the buildings to earlier, that will cost you speedy. And you can't afford to be in the beginning or middle of the level to long without energy. At the end, it is ok, as you have more than enough cash and only need to add Energy Savers to get the power back and win the level.

  • Train 4 workers and build an Appartment. Sell it immediately.

  • After 3 Georgians, you should have the material stack - so demolish the Recycling Center and build a Garden Center instead.

  • Landscape all Georgians.

  • After 5 Georgians you will be in need for a lot. Demolish the Nuclear Reactor and build the next Georgian there.

  • You will run into a blackout, but you have enough money and material to go on.

  • Do always first the painting, upgrading to 3 stars and landscaping as you have the speed of Lightning Efficiency, but no Genius Training.

  • Do not forget to train workers! This can make the difference between winning speedy or not.

  • When your 6th Georgian is upgraded, painted and landscaped, demolish the Workshop and build the 7th Georgian instead.

  • Landscape it first, then do the rest.

  • As soon as the 7th Georgian is build, demolish the Garden Center and build a Nuclear Reactor instead

  • Buy materials until you have 3 Apartments and 20,000 materials in inventory, then demolish the Recycling Center.

  • Build a 4th Apartment where the Recycling Center was, paint it, and upgrade it to 3 stars.

  • Once you have started work on the 4th Apartment, sell one Apartment. Make sure, you get the full price of it.

  • Buy it back when you can do it with the low-ball offer.

  • Once you have sold 12 houses, demolish all the A-Frames as you buy them back.

  • Replace the first 3 you buy back with painted 3-Star Apartments, so you have a total of 7 Apartments.

Grinnyp

Thank you for that info. For some reason level 7 and 8 of the main campaign didn't save. I went to the planner and found those two levels locked. I completed level 6 to move on to 7 and 8. Once those were done I saved, and it worked! Wahoooooo.

Sarah - Level 10, Challenge Campaign
Beside grinnyp's tip with the walkthrough: Very important for the challenge and the expert campaign is, to see the goals as long term goals. BaL 4 is not that straight foward.
Here are some additional tips, specially for level 10, challenge campaign:

- To get the amount of money to finish the level, you will need to build 7-8 Apartments to earn money and demolish them at the end to make room for the Duplexes.
- Also: You know by now, that the mayor will ask for three fancy shop during the level. Take this knowledge as advantage: You do not have to wait, till he is telling you! Fancy Cinemas are bringing a lot of cash and that very fast. So go ahead and build them as first buildings after you have Workshop, Recycling Center and Nuclear Reactores.
- You will have to spend money to earn some. So do not forget to buy the Lightening Efficiency Training for your worker. Otherwise you do not have a chance to build everything fast enough to earn the money and demolish what you do not need.
- There is no appeal-goal in this level, Tennis Courts as recreations are fine ;). Build them at the end. Demolish the buildings you do not need anymore and place the Tenniscourts there. Remember to demolish the Workshop last, as you want to benefit as long as possible from Lightening Training.
- Do not bother with the Duplexes to upgrade. Its enough to paint them.

An update on the 9th level in the challenge round.

When building make sure you build the shop next to the power supply. Otherwise when you demolish the power supply it won't work

So, on the challenge level in part 9, when I demolish the power supply, it doesn't let me win, whether I have built the shop next to the power supply or not...any suggestions?

For challenge level 9, once you tear down your nuculear reactor you have no power, and you cannot finish the level in black out mode. How do you finish the level, I have tried your way, but like I said you have a black out then and can't finish the level.

I've been trying to complete Level 9 on the Challenge campaign but run into the same problem as others. As soon as I get to the end & demolish the Nuclear power source it goes into black out mode & I can't finish the level no matter what experiments I try. What is the solution to this??

Ummm... I followed the instrusctions in the walkthrough for level 9 in the challenge mode... but that solution doesn't work! When everything is done, and you destroy the nuclear reactor, there is NO power in the town. everything is completed but it won't let you "win" the level bc there's no power... is there another solution?

Expert 6 Tips


Again, thanks to Kayleigh!

As Kayleigh described:

  • Build and sell the Georgian

  • Build the Recycle Center and Workshop

  • Buy Efficieny Training and train 2 more Workers for a total of 9

  • Build the Nuclear Reactor on the single lot

  • Build the Technical Center and Supercharge the Nuclear Reactor

I recommend:
  • Build and sell an Apartment

  • Buy Genius Training

  • When possible, build the Boutique and Business Center, make the Boutique Fancy and demolish the Business Center

  • Buy and develop lots as they come up:

    • Build 10 3 Energy Saver, 3 Star, Landscaped and Painted Condos on appropriate lots. This way you won't need the Solar Tower.

    • Build Tennis Courts only after you have neighboring Condos. This keeps the prices down.

  • After you have all the Condos, demolish the Recycle Center and Technical Center, then the Garden Center.

  • Build the remaining Tennis Courts

  • Finally, demolish the Nuclear Reactor
