Good game, wrong format
This is Tiny Tower, the only difference is in that game you build up, in Small Street you build sideways. So yes, it's a clone, but it's well made and it looks good. Having said all that, I can't see myself playing this that much, if at all. The interface for a game like this NEEDS to be touchscreen, WAY too much clicking for a Mac game. And though time managment games are great, this kind of sim/time management works much better on a portable device; too much busywork and waiting, and though that kind of gameplay worked fine on my IPhone, on a Mac that kind of gameplay does not translate well. It does keep you busy if you're willing to play the long gaming sessions required to build your street up without spending real money. But I'm talking about LONG gaming sessions with a LOT of repetitive clicking/busywork. Like I said, well made, but I can't see playing this for long periods on a Mac. Unless you want to spend real cash.
A quick iOS port
Supports Notification Center.
You can use the keyboard for certain things:
S is for status
T is for taxi
C is for characters
M is for menu
Space take you to the far right
You can control the taxi with the arrow keys
You can use command-Q to initiate a quit but you have to use the mouse to select yes
MULTI-TASKING IS BLOCKED. You can't keep the app open in the background and while it's running, you can't even see what time it is. Inexcusable.
It's pretty ugly.
It's also visually busy, meaning game info gets lost easily.
It's very mouse-centric, so the interface is really awkward, even with the shortcut keys.
It's a rip-off of Tiny Tower.
If you quit during the tutorial, all progress is deleted.
No iCloud support, so if you actually like this and want to play on iOS, you get to start over from scratch!
I like this game because as a student it provides that short few minute break needed when burrowed in heavy studying. I'm also a fan of Tiny Tower, BUT I like this because it holds a more simple layout, and it's on Mac. My only complaint is that it is only a full screen game (not full screen app, where you can swipe to the side to multitask*) so when you open the game, the game is the only thing you can view on your screen. If the app were made to be a windowed app with a full screen app* option, I would rate it five stars.
