How Coffee Tycoon ever made it into retail stores is beyond me. Next to Health and Fitness Club Tycoon, Coffee Tycoon is the worst "tycoon" game ever created. The game requires zero thought and zero strategy. All you need to know is how to click a button called "Start Day" and one called "End Day". That's how you play!
Coffee Tycoon is guided by stupid "random events" that help you or hurt you (mostly hurt you). When you click "Start Day," annoying and outright stupid comments appear that affect your business even though you had nothing to do with the events.
Here is a sampling:
And you will see these same comments hundreds of times throughout the game.
Here's how bad the game is. When you start the game you have one store. Once you have $500, you can buy another. But during the game, stores are automatically added or subtracted from you due to events beyond your direct control. After playing the game for 15 minutes, you may find you own 29 stores, even though you didn't buy any!
At the start of the game, you select what city you want your store to be in. I selected "Los Angeles". I guess the game makers haven't been to Los Angeles, because the game was showing it snowing outside while the guests inside the store were dressed for summer. And that about summarizes the game - no thought is given to anything. A two year old child could climb onto your chair and bang around the keyboard and click the mouse and create a coffee empire even though he has no idea what he is doing.
The only "control" you have over the game is to change the percentage of staff you have "workers | management | executives" and to select menu items or supposed "upgrades" for your store (none that are shown visually in your store, which is always stale). That's it! You can't control anything else. You can't hire workers, fire workers, manage your budget, design your store, control spending, monitor profits, etc. There's virtually no interactivity, making this one of the most boring tycoon games ever created.
I could create a list of a million things that are frustrating about this game, but here's the short list:
One final note. This game was created by Jamopolis Interactive. If this game is indicative of other games they produce, then turn and run... fast... whenever you see their name on a box. I'll save you some effort by naming other games the company has created so that you can avoid them at all costs: Name That Tune, National Lampoon's University Tycoon, Age of Castles.
