What are tycoon games?

Tycoon games first became popular in the 1970s, when Lemonade Stand was released. This was a decision-based game where players moved through a series of levels, making decisions on their stock, prices and advertising, with profits measured after 12 rounds. The game was highly successful because it included enough variables to challenge players, while still providing an easy-to-grasp introduction to running a business. Over the years, many developers built on the success of Lemonade Stand, launching popular titles like the SimCity franchise, the Zoo Tycoon series, the RollerCoaster Tycoon series and Prison Architect, where players were put in charge of their own customized prison, including all the budgets. Much of the gameplay in tycoon games is numeric, with the games teaching people how to run a successful business. But, thanks to modern gameplay, the graphics are now beautiful, so they’re fun and realistic as well. Each game simulates a real-world event and players choose exactly how to spend their money to get the biggest profit. You can be a high roller and risk it all, or limit your risk to protect your investments.
