I was surprised by how much managed is needed in this game. You have to take side jobs to get a regular income and then you take on bigger jobs for the mayor. The split between management and controller a digger is around 70/30 with the main part of the game being the construction and demolition site.
Each level has a set of objects laid out. You then control various building vehicles to achieve the objective. This can range from moving sand to another location or use a crane to demolish a building. Controls are easy to pick up, the shoulder buttons accelerating and the thumbstick controlling direction.
Vehicles can be upgraded to take on harder jobs. The weather can change, but this won’t affect the game at all, it’s more visual. The jobs seem never-ending with well over 100 available to play.
I think the word simulation should be taken with a grain of salt. It very much feels like an arcade game or management game. There are no cockpit views or anything too in-depth. Jobs are quick to complete, so has a more casual feel.
There isn’t a high level of detail or technical elements to the game, so this will appeal to younger people. This won’t interest people who are interested in how the construction industry works.
Overall, Construction Machines Simulator on the Nintendo Switch is a little misleading. It doesn’t get into the nitty-gritty of the industry and is more a casual game with diggers.
