Developed by Dapper Penguin Studios, Rise of Industry is a strategy game, which is very much in the style of classic 90s sims like Transport Tycoon or Industry Giant. As the player, you take control of a small company and try to expand it into a major industrial empire. The game provides players with complete control over various aspects of the production line, including building farms, mines or wells in order to gather raw resources. Ultimately, however, the customer is always right and the player must create products which appeal to the local community.
A strategy game in the style of Transport Tycoon
- but easy to get to grips with
- Plenty of customisation options
- Limited choice of landscaping features
- Graphics are simplistic and feel dated
