Construction-Simulator is a realistic computer game released by German company Astragon, that specializes in construction-simulation software. In Construction-Simulator players are required to build a number of different structures and objects such as watercraft, bridges, airport, shopping malls, hotels, residential areas and much more. It was one of the most expensive games available on Steam at launch, costing over $70. However, the game has since been removed from the store shelves and was replaced with the Plants Vs. Zombies game, which was developed by Popcap Games and is now free to play on the web.
Construction-Simulator features the most realistic graphics and sounds available on a computer or gaming console, and uses a combination of traditional computer-game technology and the most up-to-date visualization technologies and tools, which includes the Source Engine and the Unreal Engine. The game has been enjoyed by many construction enthusiasts and professionals alike, who have been using the software for over a decade. Most people who purchase Construction-Simulator do so because they want to recreate a particular building that they have seen in their own lives. Others just enjoy playing an officially licensed construction machines game, due to the nostalgic factor that they have.
Construction-Simulator features the most advanced rendering technologies used by video games today. Although it is available for both Windows and Apple OS X, the majority of people who purchase the product are those who prefer the Apple computers due to its compatibility with the Mac hardware. The game can also be downloaded to several other computers for use on other computers, including PCs and laptops, making it a particularly accessible game. There is even a version available for Nintendo Wii consoles.
