Lay claim to real life properties in this real estate tycoon game that lets you own a piece of popular locations in your location and surrounding area as you build up your own empire of virtual property. With its sandbox design Landlord Idle Tycoon Business allows players to set your own objective although will primarily revolve around growing your wealth and stock of property.

Available for iOS and Android devices players can join in on the property fun as either a guest or link their account to a social platform to provide safety to your progress beyond your specific device. All players start on the same footing in Landlord Idle Tycoon Business and while you’ll be unlikely to compete with those that have been playing the game for years given the nature of the game a player that makes smart efficient decisions can definitely outgrow someone that starts at the same time.

This starting point in Landlord Idle Tycoon Business sees players handed 50,000 in cash and some coins (premium currency) which serves as the basis for your landlord empire. While this might seem like a small sum of money it is sufficient to start start purchasing instantly by selecting the ‘buy properties’ option which (if location services are on) will list popular locations currently near your location. Landlord Idle Tycoon Business claims there are currently 50mil venues for purchase and it’s definitely a believable number when you consider its a global game and the sheer number of familiar locations you’ll see for your area.

Purchases of property from here on are completed in percentages as small as 0.1% which can easily set you back your first 50k depending on the location that you select. Once you own a piece of a location players are charged a daily amount for holding it but also receive a daily amount for rent which is calculated based on the popularity of that location.

If a property already has been 100% purchased then players will have to acquire shares from others directly which encourages some trading between the player base and serves as a secondary method of making big dollars. This player trading mechanic is also incentivised by Landlord Idle Tycoon Business as the tax on these transactions is only 10% compared to 20% when selling your shares to the bank for funds. Interestingly Landlord Idle Tycoon Business will also start selling player properties after 28 days of inactivity which ensures that locations aren’t held by inactive players. When all of these player related marketplace mechanics combine it ensures new players are given a fighting chance to own a piece of a popular property and allows properties to have both capital growth and consistent rental income.

Further customisation is available through property upgrades that can boost income and are based on the category of that property. Player customisation is also available through skills that allow you to own more properties, reduce the time a property is with lawyers after purchase, reduce costs of owning, increase rent gained, reduce tax payable and improve valuations. While useful these skills provide minor percentage gains that reward long term play but don’t significantly impact the marketplace experience.

Landlord Idle Tycoon Business is an enjoyable idle past time although the lack of tutorial does require some trial and error to figure out how all the mechanics work. With the real gameplay centred around comparing yourself on the leader boards and watching your name rise through the local, national and global ranks it is also unfortunate to see the definite advantage to paying players with many upgrades limited to the premium coin currency.

Summary:

  • Claim a percentage of property in the real world around your location as you upgrade it and collect regular income.
  • Hire specialists for small boosts to game mechanics that reward consistent play.
  • Make offers directly to players or sell your property stakes for capital gains.
  • Compete on various leader boards to prove you are the ultimate idle tycoon.
  • Free location based idle game for iOS and Android.
