About

Block’hood is a neighborhood-building simulator that celebrates the diversity and experimentation of cities and the unique ecosystems within them. Budding city planners will have access to 200+ building blocks to arrange and combine and to create unique neighborhoods and discover the implications of their designs. The game will embark on a story of ecology and understanding as additional resources are always needed to unlock new blocks, configurations, and combinations to create more prosperous neighborhoods. Throughout the design process, players will need to avoid the decay of their city blocks by making sure each unit doesn’t run out of resources and become a strain on the complimentary units around them.

Envision Your Neighborhood: Consider what Blocks are necessary for your neighborhood to thrive. There are no boundaries of what you can create with an expanding library of 200+ blocks.
Generate Resources: Each Block you create has inputs and outputs and by understanding how each block is dependent on other blocks, you can create a productive network. Optimize your production and generate abundant resources for the dozens of intricate symbiotic relationships in your neighborhood

Avoid Decay: If blocks don't receive the inputs they need, they will decay over time and slowly become abandoned or destroyed. Once a block is abandoned or destroyed, you will have to remove it and avoid it from making other blocks decay further. Be careful as seeking an utopian neighborhood carelessly, can lead to dystopia.

Unique Modes: Neighborhood designers can enjoy the new Story Mode, Sandbox Mode, and Challenge Mode with modes for unique and engaging experience for players of all types.

Product received for free Early Access Review I haven't played the Game for long but I find it supper

Hmmm... I wasn't excited about the Game. Outdated Graphics, boring Story and extremely difficult Scenarios (Challanges). The pleasure quickly passes ...

Tutorial is even more or less playable ... I don't really understand the long Loading Times between Tutorials. Because graphically, the Game is not a Masterpiece. The Idea behind it was also more interesting to me. But if you Then play a Challenge, nothing works out anymore. Buildings can be built, but no People move in even though all the Specifications are in place and then the Buildings naturally expire. If the first Game I gave back is very disappointed with it and therefore can not recommend it any further. It's just not playable.

Conditional Buy recommendation It's actually quite a nice Game. However, I can't really understand that the Developer has decided to leave the Early Access Phase. It still has some Bugs that should be eliminated as well as resources that you can't use yet, there's no Production Line to do so. Map mode is also limited. Networking the different Hoods has not yet been implemented and when building on a Map you always have a Block limit of 800. Even the Storyline is still bugated. In the 5th (last) Chapter, it hangs up. What has been implemented so far is working quite well. In doing so, it is pooling various Resources to keep the Population happy. But That something that comes out of a sizeable way is rather rare unless you trick something. PRO Hübsche making complex Resource management Exciting Challanges (From easy to heavy) Good Soundtrack Tutorial (Basics), Story, Challanges and Sandbox (with and without Resource Management) CONTRA Has still some some serious Bugs developers seems Since June 17 inactive is actually still in the Early Access Stadium. Unfinished content Who is into micromanagement and Building games will certainly find This Game interesting. The Challenge here is clearly the limited Place for the Hood. Conclusion: Unfinished construction/Micromanagement game with a nice character and unique charm, which still has to contend with some Bugs and obviously has not yet been completed in terms of Content. If you want to buy this, wait for a sale Http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1155892941
