Werewolf Tycoon is a uniquely fun, stealth eating game.
The graphics in Werewolf tycoon are great. There is an intentional pixilation to the user Interface (UI), characters, and environments, that bring a full feeling of nostalgia. As everything is done in the same style, the graphics are cohesive throughout–nothing takes the player out of the immersive game. The animations are fluid, such as when the werewolf devours an civilian, solider, reporter, or alien, or leaps from its hiding spot in the park bush. The environment is beautifully rendered, and the intentional pixilation adds a lot to the game. In this case, less (pixels) is truly more. Ads are also kept to the menu pages, so they do not interrupt game play or detract from the graphics.
As for the game play, it is simple to play but difficult to master. It requires strategy, as players must eat at least one victim each night so as to not starve, but also avoid getting too much attention. A single reporter snapping a photo and escaping and the army is called in, meaning it’s lights out for Mr. werewolf. Overall, Werewolf Tycoon allows players to become the big bad wolf of legend, admire what small eyes the citizens have from hiding, and swallow them whole when the cameras aren’t around.
Perhaps the only thing really off about Werewolf Tycoon is its title. it makes sense as a tycoon can mean someone of great power, and werewolves are traditionally human beings who are cursed. However, using Tycoon often makes players think of games like Roller Coaster Tycoon and Zoo Tycoon, which will damage the store star rating if people go in expecting something customizable and vast, rather than a clean, responsive, endless score climber. Other than this, the game runs the risk of becoming a little repetitive, but it does offer fun and challenging achievements and a score board, so this isn’t a huge issue.
All in all, Werewolf Tycoon is a fun addition to any game library, especially those with an affinity for the horror genre.
Werewolf Tycoon – Become the Big Bad Wolf of Werewolf Park in this werewolf stealth simulation game. Eat as many people as you can, but pace yourself, try not to be seen, and do not let witnesses escape! After all, things could get tricky if too many people become aware of your existence! Happy munching!
