As this month unfolds, it gets crazier and crazier at the shopping malls. Pretty soon, it’ll end up being a suicide run. Have you ever wondered what your mall’s management team thinks of while they observe people spewing through the mall entrances? If it were me, I would only have one thing on my mind: “Dance, puppets, dance!” I would probably follow that up with some maniacal laughter. To be honest though, the pressure must be on to make sure that their customers are happy customers, because happy customers may potentially spend more money. Some of you may think you could do a much better job, but don’t have the guts, or energy to follow through. If you want to see if you have what it takes, but on a much smaller (and virtual) scale, here’s a game for you: Shopper's Paradise HD for the BlackBerry PlayBook and BlackBerry Smartphones.
It’s been called a cross between Tower Defence and Tycoon as, instead of defending a tower, you’re defending your business. You do so by constructing various types of businesses such as stores, hotels, cinemas and so on. The customers stroll through the paths, like enemies in a defence type gain. In this case, you aren’t trying to take their lives, just their money. Keep your businesses successful by hiring police, employees and maintaining your sites. You can choose from a wide selection of maps to build upon. Yes, the video above says it's coming soon, but it still gives you a look at the game play you're about to partake in. It’s amazingly quick to pick up the fundamentals and addictively fun to master them. Shoppers Paradise HD for the BlackBerry PlayBook, and BlackBerry Smartphones is available from BlackBerry App World for $2.99; but only for tablets running OS 2.0 developer beta. There is a free version available, but it’s only for BlackBerry smartphones running OS 5.0 or higher.
