Prep your snag list – Constructor remake is out now

After a couple of delays (builders, eh?) Constructor [official site], System 3’s remake of their estate-building strategy game from 1997, finally launched on Friday.

The announced January 29th release date for Constructor HD [official site], a remake of the ace town-building RTS from 1997, made so little impression on me that I didn't even realise it had passed.

Build ‘Em Up, Burn ‘Em Down: Constructor HD Announced

After you've bowed to a wealthy tenant's demands and blown up their neighbour's giant gnome, then sent a gang of yobs out to terrorise a rival council's estate - backed up by a hippy holding a street rave to distract their council workers - by tossing bins and jeering, other city management games can feel a little dry.
