After a forest fire, people fled. To the chagrin of many animals, because they were obviously happy about the hustle and bustle and the garbage left behind. Doesn’t sound very educational, but the humor and the talking animals give this story base the necessary cartoon touch. In the mix of motel and farming simulation, in the role of Hank the bear, you can lure people back into the forest without any pressure of time or money.
To do this, you farm wood, rock and other odds and ends along the way at the push of a button and use them to build furnishings that you can then use similarly to in Two Point Campus planted in buildings. Later, the demands increase and guests need nicer rooms, towards the end there is even some micromanagement when guests in the north are cold or you have to prepare food regularly in a kitchen. Although the basic principle works well, there are unfortunately many flaws that make life difficult for you. The controls are clearly designed for the PC and are anything but intuitive. Many of the steps involved in building a room or even just preparing a meal are unnecessarily complicated. In addition, the switch is once again struggling with performance: constant jerking and a feeling of danger of falling are constant companions. After all, the little bear adventure saves regularly, so that usually only about five minutes of your valuable working and farming time are lost.
Opinion & Rating
Steffen Heller says: My tip to multi-console players: wait and see! The Switch performance takes a lot out of my Fun-O-Meter. I also sincerely hope that the developers will fix many more design issues. I had to figure out how to use the menu myself, and even after eight hours it was quite a struggle. I had hoped that, among other things, you would simply learn a lot from the Two Pointseries that works great on console. Unfortunately, the developers make even the simplest steps unnecessarily complicated, which made me increasingly lose interest in maintaining my motel empire towards the end.
Insanely likeable motel simulation that suffers from technical and design flaws.
