- If you don't know how to read NFO's I'd HIGHLY suggest taking a look at DAMN NFO viewer. Lightweight, free app. On the other hand you could either drag a NFO file into notepad, or simply right click the NFO, 'open with'>'notepad' :) Simple simple.

Constructor is a building game in which the purpose is to build buildings, make cash, and complete a series of objectives. You have only 5 maps to play on, which is a major disadvantage. Constructor is very humorous and doesn't have a shred of seriousness, so if you dislike funny games this is not for you.
Constructor is deep and has many features, including the ability to use police, mobsters, and gadgets to help you defeat your opponents and make your residents happy. If your residents become unhappy, they will leave and stop bringing in cash and extra workers (which build buildings and convert into repairmen and gangsters) and tenants (which populate your buildings). Workers can also take over buildings and attack enemy workers. Repairmen have the sole task of repairing your buildings whereas gangsters can attack enemies much more effectively than workers, and are the only people that can attack buildings.
Constructor's AI is extremley ruthless and will not hesitate to build on your land, take over and destroy your buildings, and generally wreak havoc. The graphics are extremely well-done for such a primitive engine. The sound is well done, although it isn't the best quality. This game is fun is because it oozes charm and is surprisingly addictive once you get into it.
Constructor has several downsides as well. While the interface is generally easy to use, it has a extremely annoying obmission; you cannot use the right mouse button to move your workers, which can get very annoying when you are trying to build up an area quickly before the AI moves in. Also, the game does not have much variety, and once you exhaust the initial charm and fun, it quickly becomes boring.
Overall Constuctor is an extremely fun game while it lasts. It works well in dosbox, but make sure you disable the video animations, as some are missing.
