Alawar Entertainment releases Hotel Mogul

ALEXANDRIA, June 26 -- Alawar Entertainment, one of the world's leading publishers of casual games, has released Hotel Mogul, an exciting new casual business sim. The addictive time management game combines the best qualities of an action-packed arcade title with intelligent economic strategy.

In Hotel Mogul, the player takes the role of the business savvy Lynette, who sets out to reclaim her family business from her conniving husband. In order to earn enough money to accomplish her goal, she must learn to manage a global business empire. In the beginning, the player is given only a few campsites and cafés to run. In time, he or she is tasked with managing a worldwide network of luxury hotels, restaurants and amusement parks.

Experience comes gradually in Hotel Mogul. Advancing from level to level, the player learns the nuts and bolts of business management, constructs and renovates buildings, handles real estate transactions and develops lightning-quick reflexes. Good multitasking skills and reaction times are essential, as the player must complete each level within a limited amount of time.

Hotel Mogul features over 30 challenging levels, 12 trophies, five massive locations in different climates and four hidden object mini-games. The player can also purchase nine types of buildings, some of which appear only in special bonus levels.

"More and more people are becoming addicted to business sims," says Kirill Plotnikov, vice president of publishing at Alawar. "We wanted to give casual gamers a chance to become successful entrepreneurs by building their own hotel network in differentparts of the world -- from arid deserts to a winter wonderland. Now everyone can become a Donald Trump!"
