Judging by the number of people that play games on Facebook, it's safe to assume that there are a lot of people who are looking for an addictive little time waster of a game to keep them occupied for a bit. And while games like Candy Crush and Angry Birds have been leaders in the genre for a while now, there is always a market out there for strategy games like this one. Ski Park for iOS and Android is a beautifully detailed game that manages to combine two hugely popular gaming genres and puts both city builder and the finding of hidden objects into one entertaining and fun game. In fact, Ski Park has proven so popular that this free theme park-style game has charted in the top ten strategy games in over twenty different countries since its release.

Ski Park combines two of the most popular gaming genres for this new game for iPhone, iPad and Android. First up there's the 'city builder' genre of game where you can create your very own environment and build anything from the local town hall to the Taj Mahal. This version of the genre lets you create the most wonderful ski resort that the world has ever seen and as soon as you build and crank up your ski lift the visitors will come. Build all sorts of great looking buildings and set your town against a glorious backdrop of scenic mountains. House your new visitors by building small chalets and luxury hotels and watch as they fill up with visitors keen for a touch of glamor amongst the mountains. Create places like entertainment centers and put on special shows so that your visitors are guaranteed plenty of fun. The second part of the fun with Ski Park begins as soon as your visitors arrive. Win interesting and unusual prizes by finding some of the mysterious looking guests and  hidden objects that are secreted all over the city. There are literally hundreds of them too, so it will take you a while to locate them all. This makes the game a long term investment - something many crave.
 
There is always something going on when you build your very own Ski Park resort. It proves itself to be one of the most entertaining and attractive looking games in the city / theme builder gaming genre and puts the icing on the cake with the extra task of hunting out hidden objects and people. There are hundreds of them too so you will never be short of things to do when playing. There's also a very useful 'helper' who is there to guide you with hints in case you lose the plot. I've seen friends play these games for hours and hours non-stop so I know how addictive and entertaining they can be and Ski Park excels because there is always something going on. You can even upgrade the buildings that you've previously built and any of your buildings can hold events to bring a profit to your park. As games go, this is a great one for iPhone, iPad and Android that give gamers a bit more longevity and turns into something that's a little more than just another addictive little time waster. There was a great line in Kevin Costner's inspirational film "Field of Dreams," - "If you build it, they will come."  Well, if you build your Ski Park resort - they will want to come and ski.
