  • Yoot tower Yoot Tower, a 1998 sequel to SimTower, confused a lot of people on release as i a lot of respects it is the same as its predecessor in all but name. Maxis owned the 'Sim' brand at the time but it was Sega who put up the money to publish this game and therefore named it after the game designer, Yutaka 'Yoot' Saitō.

  • Review 1: Yoot Tower is a much-improved sequel to Maxis' tower-building classic SimTower. Similar to the first game, Yoot Tower was much more popular on the Mac than it was on the PC, probably due to the fact that both games were coded on a Mac and released for that platform first.
  • Yoot Tower is the follow up, but not direct sequel, to SimTower and was developed by creator Yoot Saito. In December 2010, it was released for the iPad.

Yoot Tower (Sega, 1998) is an improvement over the Maxis/Electronic Arts game SimTower. The same fellow, Yutaka 'Yoot' Saito, who created that decided he could do a better one without as many restrictions as Maxis placed on him so he rewrote the game and convinced Sega to market it. Many consider Yoot Tower to be SimTower 2 because they are similar in game play and written by the same person. This game was available in both Mac or PC formats and works great in XP with 95/98 compatibility mode so no need for any other utility to emulate that ancient OS.

Yoot Tower Download Mac Download

You try to build the best tower you can with hotel rooms, offices, condos, shops, entertainment facilities and the extras to keep them clean or accessable like elevators, stairs, escalators, parking lots/ramps, trash recycliers, along with housekeeping and security rooms. Random VIP's will stop by your tower from time to time depending on your star rating. These things will vary depending on which location you build in and are based on the number of stars your building receives.
Playability is simple point & click with icons. There are three starting areas: Kegon Falls, Hawaii or Tokyo with each location having different costs, size limits and citizen or visitor tastes. You can adjust the rent of each of your shops, offices or condos to suit your needs with full zoom and color coded warnings for your hotel rooms that show status. Unlike SimTower though, you don't have to keep the time running to build. You can pause, build a few things then unpause to let people access them; this can save you cash on interest rates for loans you take out.
Sadly it appears that the official website has disappeared along with the few plugins that were made for this game. The graphics are a little dated even compared to SimCity or SimTower. And if you aren't into these types of games, you'll be bored with the amount of micromanagement you have to do on things like elevators, hotel rates, advertising, etc.
There is so little difference between Yoot Tower and SimTower that many magazine and individuals said this game was a waste of time but if you like building things or management sims, then give it a download. Of course if you search hard enough you can find a few cheats for this game if you think you need them. This game has no multiplay option.Yoot Tower Download Mac

Yoot Tower (known in Japan as The Tower II) is a 1998construction and management simulationcomputer game. It may be considered the spiritual successor to the 1994 game SimTower.

The lead designer, Yoot Saito, who also worked on SimTower, produced this game as a sequel to SimTower, adding several new features while retaining the same general interface and style. The game's premise is largely unchanged from its predecessor; players must build a profitable and unique tower block complete with various amenities and living accommodations, while balancing the needs of the occupants.

Gameplay[edit]

Exiting from basement shops to the lobby

Using the provided starting funds, players must begin to build a tower from scratch. As in SimTower, offices and food courts can be built to generate income, as well as condos that can be sold to families. There are plenty of new facilities that can be placed such as rented apartments, vending machines and public restrooms for food court patrons. There are also many changes to existing items that featured in the original game, i.e. a notable difference between the shop item in Yoot Tower and the one originally in SimTower is that it no longer functions as a rented space where the player has no control over what the shop sells; rather the player is provided with different types of shop from the start from which the income they make is part of the player's earnings. Another interesting addition is the ability for players to build two or more towers next to each other and join them with sky bridges. Other income sources also exist, such as placing billboards outside and renting them out as advertisement space.

Also new to this game is the ability to choose where the building is built. What the player can do in these locations varies, such as how many stories high the building can be, what the player is actually allowed to build, and how much money the player starts off with. The variation gives each location its own difficulty level compared to the others.

Yoot Tower includes a non-invasive form of static in-game advertising. Users can place billboards for Apple Computer (in Mac version only) and Sega, whilst there are tenants featuring real-world stores like GameWorks, Orange Julius or Air Jamaica. Some updates include more real-world tenants and billboards. The Japanese version includes a Glico store.

The Tower II is a fully 32-bit program unlike SimTower which was 16-bit. It can even run on all 64-bit Windows operating systems. The Tower II also has a resizable window that can support very high resolutions (3200 x 2160).

Expansions[edit]

A new addition of the game is the ability to expand the game using plug-ins released for download which would add new features, such as new facilities (e.g. additional shops, restaurants, and services, ranging from a Glico store to a swimming pool), new events, billboards, and movies, as well as other aspects of gameplay. Inspection of the game's official website through web archives indicates that although the American version never got any true additions, the Japanese version got several updates, including new movies and locations. However, none of these appear to have survived when the official websites relating to the game and its developer OPeNBooK9003 went offline between the years 2001 and 2002. Through translations on the Japanese downloads page, an Austin Powers movie can be downloaded.

The original Tower II game came with Tokyo and Hawaii. The American version had Tokyo, Hawaii, and Kegon Falls. However, unlike in Japan, America did not get updates. In Japan, each expansion pack was sold under the Towerkit title.

Locations[edit]

Waikiki, Hawaii[edit]

The easiest of the three scenarios, Hawaii has users building a mixed-use structure featuring condominia and hotels. After building up those plus an underground shopping mall, users can place a cathedral on the top floor (the 45th).

Tokyo, Japan[edit]

The advanced Tokyo level has users building a fast-paced tower with primarily offices and eventually other uses as well. Users place a stadium on the top level.

Kegon Falls[edit]

In this scenario, the player is required to construct mostly underground, building a vast underground tourist attraction through hotels, shops, and a museum. This was initially sold in Japan as an expansion, but is included in Yoot Tower and later The Tower II releases.

Statue of Liberty[edit]

This expansion, was released in Japan in February 1999 under the name Towerkit CD-ROM: The Statue of Liberty. It was also originally meant to be available to download from the American official website, but the English version never materialized. The expansion is rare in Japan.

Tokyo Tower[edit]

In this game, player build below Tokyo Tower. Yoot Saito also indicated the Tower team was working on another location, 'Tokyo Tower'[1], but the addition was only released in Japan as Towerkit. This is not to be confused with the 'Tokyo' location.

Kyoto Station Bldg.[edit]

The Kyoto Station was launched as a product based on the Gamera 3: Awakening of Irys movie. This version was sold as Towerkit, or bundled with the base The Tower II game.

King Naniwa Building Legend[edit]

In this add-on, player built around Tsutenkaku.

This version was sold as Towerkit, or bundled with the base The Tower II game.

Christmas Story[edit]

In this add-on, player builds a log building to collect Christmas-themed items. This version was sold as Towerkit and the rarest and most obscure of the released items.

Cancelled releases[edit]

  • Luxury cruise ship

The game was dismissed by some game review websites and magazines as being too much a rehash of the original SimTower. Many wrote the game off as being basically identical to its predecessor. Due to the average reviews and spotty distribution, the game was largely ignored by the mainstream gaming public after release, possibly contributing to its poor sales.[citation needed] This in turn is the most likely reason why none of the new locations or expansion plug-ins were ever localized for the English version.[citation needed] It sold well in Japan, however, and received several new plug-ins. Another criticism was that some in-game text was not localized effectively.[citation needed] This resulted in some minor text errors and unfamiliar items to American audiences (such as placing cigarette machines commonly).
