3 out of 5

PROS

  • Easy to control.
  • Fun upgrade system.

VERDICT

An easy to play management game that slowly ramps up the difficulty. The upgrade system adds a level of addictiveness.

Sally is fresh out of university and wants to open her own salon. In Sally's Salon, you help Sally through each day of her business as she juggles the many wants of her customers. Based on how fast she serves them, and how well they tip, Sally can upgrade her salon and hire new employees, constantly expanding her business.

Everything in the salon is done with the touch of a finger. If an area of the salon is free, tapping a customer will send them over. Tapping them will have Sally serve them. One great aspect of the controls is the ability to queue up Sally's actions when there are multiple things that need to be handled. At the beginning of each day there is the ability to either buy upgrades to the salon or to hire staff. Most upgrades either allow more people to be served at once, or to be served faster.

Sally, her employees, and the customers have a simple, pleasing look to them. The salon is well designed, with colour queues from the customers being easy to read, even when the salon is full of people. Aside from the main mode, there is also a survival mode, to see how long you can last.

Sally's Salon is an enjoyable little management game. Trying to keep the customers happy, meeting a cash quota, and constantly being able to buy new upgrades day by day should keep people busy for a while. The art seems to try and appeal to females over males, but there is a fun game here, and is worth a play.
