GrinnypWho knew that real estate development could be so entertaining? It must be so, otherwise we wouldn't be celebrating the release of yet another time management game that involves building, renting, and demolishing houses. Well, sort of houses, the kind you hear about in bedtime stories or Disney movies. The Build-a-Lot empire just keeps rolling along, doesn't it, even in imaginary lands. Brace yourself for more construction fun with Hipsoft's seventh entry into the series, Build-a-Lot: Fairy Tales.

grinnyp_buildalotfairytales_screenshot1.pngThe basics of the build-a-lot series are simple: you begin with a location that is in need of development. The local mayor (whether that mayor be human or a big, bad wolf) lets you know what needs to be done, i.e. they need cottages. You then manage resources (building materials), workforce (construction fairies!), and time to get the needed construction done before the clock runs out. Houses you build bring in rent or can be sold outright, and the money can be spent for more materials or labor in order to get the job done. Each scenario has its own unique requirements and there are a lot of scenarios to work through with five main sections: a tutorial, the storybook levels, the expert levels, the quickplay levels, and the casual levels.

Rather than being grounded in basic construction as all the rest of the Build-a-lot games have been, Build-a-lot: Fairy Tales is, well, set inside the world of fairytales. The mayors of each location come right out of children's stories such as the big bad wolf, the nutcracker, the frog prince, etc. The residences to be constructed are equally fantastic, featuring dens, gingerbread houses, fantasy manors and the like. Buildings to help alleviate materials or labor costs are also available, a dwarves foundry to help lower the cost of building materials, and a toadstool to incite the fairies to work faster for lower wages. Town improvements such as wishing wells show up to enhance real estate value and appeal.

grinnyp_buildalotfairytales_screenshot2.pngAnalysis: Yes, Build-a-Lot: Fairy Tales is basically Build-a-Lot: On Vacation (the sixth in the series) with a fairy-tale skin, but what a fantastical skin it is. Unlike Build-a-Lot: Elizabethan Era, which was the Build-a-lot standard with slightly different visuals, this world takes the basic time management of the series and elevates it to a new level with actual storylines and the delightful graphics, characters, and animations.

HipSoft has jettisoned the now somewhat stale backgrounds of basic grass, trees, and streets, and created a cornucopia of visual delights, from the meadows to the mountains, from the fantasy town of the nutcracker to the deep forest. Each area has amusing supporting characters gracing the sides of the screen, along with incidental sounds that perfectly match the location (love the bleating goats and sheep of the mountains). Each of the mayors has been given true personality as well (why precisely is the big bad wolf fixing up the meadows? why does the nutcracker want to escape the town so badly?) making the experience richer and more satisfying. Simple things like the construction workers, represented by hard hats in the rest of the series, have been upgraded to beautiful butterfly-fairies. Even the now standard build-a-lot music has been upgraded, meaning that everywhere in the game is a feast for the eyes and ears. Best yet, houses no longer just fall into disrepair. No, a flipping FIRE BREATHING DRAGON appears and torches your property instead, one of many delights to be found as play continues.

grinnyp_buildalotfairytales_screenshot3.pngThe gameplay is completely in line with Build-a-lot: On Vacation, with the wooded lots, the ability to "enchant" (i.e. stage) the homes, and the like. For those who loved the sixth in the series here are a multitude of new levels of gameplay. The enchanting graphics and storyline are tailor-made to help introduce the younger set to the series, all the while maintaining the high levels of gameplay we've come to expect from HipSoft's flagship series. There's even more of a story through line as you go from one area to the next, with call-backs to previous mayors (for instance the delightful flying ship you built for the nutcracker has a habit of flying through later scenes).

For those who have been complaining that the series never seems to update their backgrounds, well, here you go. With the intricate and challenging gameplay, fantastical backgrounds, and most importantly an actual story Build-a-lot: Fairy Tales may be the best of the bunch, rather than a stale re-skinning of something we've seen before. For those who love the series and those who've never tried it, here's an imaginative gift from HipSoft wrapped in bright shiny paper and an elaborate bow.

Build-a-Lot Fairy Tales Walkthrough
General info, levels 1-20

General Information

  • Always check the level goals before making your first move.

  • There will often be a "late" goal added halfway through the level, be prepared.

  • Plots that you own, empty lots, wooded lots, or houses are in color. Plots that you don't own are washed out.

  • Hovering the mouse over a construction button (either a house, building, or extra) will show the requirements to build it. This also applies to special builds like the airship.

  • Some levels have special, one-time only build requirements unique to that level, like the airship. These often require extra materials, labor, and money. Identify the requirements at the beginning of the level to save time.

  • Wooded lots are helpful for both materials and money. If you don't have a foundry they are a great source for cheap materials. If you do have a foundry for cheap materials, harvest for the money and use the vacant lot to build.

  • Buy in bulk where you can. The more materials or labor you buy in a single move, the cheaper they are (i.e. buying two fairies at once is cheaper per fairy than buying one at a time).

  • The smaller houses don't bring in a lot of rent, it is easier to build them and immediately sell for more cash, especially cottages and manors.

  • Use enchanted lots (when available) to build industrial buildings (foundry, toadstool, etc.) to alleviate the charm damage they cause.

  • Most of the later levels require a lot of materials and labor so a foundry (materials) and a toadstool (cheaper, faster labor) are often a must. If you don't have enchanted lots to build on, cluster the industrial buildings together, preferably not near anything residential, to reduce charm impact.

  • If a level requires charm, remember to paint and enchant a house before selling.

  • Watch the rent bar carefully. Start any new or upgrade construction right after the rent is paid. Houses under construction will not pay rent, so time construction between rent cycles.

  • Decorating a house adds to the rental income without using materials, so use it ruthlessly to increase income.

  • Protect houses after upgrading to prevent dragon attacks.

  • A house burning from a dragon attack will not pay rent, so extinguish as soon as possible.

  • Coveted lots pay better rent and sell for more, so buy and build on coveted lots when possible.

  • If a lot you need doesn't come up for sale, you can use the buy double option to force a sale. Make sure you have the money, this can get expensive.

  • If you want to use the "offer less" button, at least 3 houses need to be for sale. You can always put up some of your properties for sale to allow the use of the "offer less" or "low-ball" options. Just remember to refuse any offers that come in and take the properties off the market as quickly as possible, properties for sale do not bring in any rent.

  • The more properties that are up for sale, the lower the price you will get for one you want to sell. Gilding alleviates this, so use it when available.

  • Decoration and gilding are very useful in levels where a lot of money is needed, so build the witch's cauldron when you can.

  • If you protect a property to protect from dragons, then upgrade, the protection disappears after construction. Do not protect a property until you have finished upgrading. Painting, enchanting, decorating, and gilding can take place without affecting protections.

  • This walkthrough offers ONE possible solution to each level, others may be possible. Each solution in the walkthrough is for blue ribbon (expert) time.

  • Multi-tasking is key. Attack as many projects at the same time as labor and materials allow.

  • There are five types of lots in the game: (1) empty lots, which are ready to build on; (2) wooded lots, which need to be harvested before you can build on them; (3) Enchanted lots, which can be wooded or empty, and where you can place industrial buildings without effecting neighboring structures; (4) Coveted lots, which can be wooded, empty, or have housing, and which command a higher rent and sale price; and (5) Developed lots, which already have houses or other structures already present.

  • There are five different groups of levels within the game: Tutorial, Storybook, Expert, Quick Play, and Casual Play. This walkthrough will NOT cover the Tutorial levels as they are self-evident, nor will it cover the Casual Play levels as they are too free-form.

  • There are 30 levels in the Storybook, 10 levels in the Expert Play, and ? levels in Quick Play.

  • The functions of the real estate office from Build-a-Lot 6 staging (decorating) and appraisal (gilding) have been split between the Fairy toadstool (decorating) and the Witch's Cauldron (gilding).

  • There is no garden center in this game, the function has been taken over by the Witch's Cauldron (enchanting).

  • Good luck!
