Have you ever wanted to control your own radio station? Sure you have. Everyone has aspired to be a big media mogul at least once. Now you can live out your fantasy with a new application called Radio Tycoon. As the name implies, you’ll be in charge of every aspect of running a radio station from choosing the music to buying equipment (microphones, antennas, etc), decorating, and attracting advertisers and listeners.
The graphics and game play hearken back to classic PC games such as Roller Coaster Tycoon, yet feel very much like some of today’s Facebook games. Speaking of which, while Radio Tycoon is free to download and play, you’ll need a Facebook account to get started. One benefit to this feature is that you’ll be able to invite your friends who can then play for or against you. An online version for Facebook will be launching in the coming weeks.
Radio Tycoon operates in real time, meaning it works when you aren’t physically playing it. Things work best when you check in on your staff to make sure they are happy. Should you leave them alone, they’ll get tired or upset and stop working. Watch what happens to your audience numbers when you have an uninspired team and no advertisers!
Radio Tycoon runs on all devices with Android 2.0 or higher.
