NANOO has just released Santorini: Pocket Game, a management simulation game where you take on the role of a resort manager, for iOS and Android devices. The game was previously available for pre-registration.

Santorini is based in the Aegean Sea surrounded by hotels and restaurants, and you are able to curate new ideas and designs as you build up these new hotels in the area. You can then decorate them and make them all nice and fancy for the guests who’ll come swarming in.

Considering that Santorini is a holiday spot with a beautiful beach and spectacular sea view, the resort demand is quite high and you can use this to your advantage. Capitalising on the tourists’ needs will require great use of your management skills.

Before you construct these new buildings, you need to scout the location and ensure you know the best places to build on in order to attract more customers. Since it’s the job a good manager to look after the needs of their guests, you can analyse their interests and make some changes to the resorts in order to customise it to their liking. It’s only by doing this can you expand and build better facilities to grow your empire.

If you’re successful, you can upgrade up to 200 buildings and earn large amounts of revenue from them. You must also make them more accessible by adding airports, helipads and harbours to accommodate traffic from planes, helicopters and boats. It’ll all add to your income of guests.

Santorini: Pocket Game features traditional Greek music composed by Kleopas Thanasis, which will be surely to mesmerise you. NANOO has said it has tried the imitate Santorini as close as possible to the real thing, so it should be an accurate representation of the location.

You can now download Santorini: Pocket Game from the iOS App Store and the Google Play for Android store, where it is a free to play game with adverts and in-app purchases.
