Game Review: Sally’s Salon Luxury EditionAugust 8, 2011 1 Comment
Sally’s Salon Luxury Edition has continuously been compared to Diner Dash. I would say that that comparison is correct, however Sally’s Salon adds a little twist. When you begin your game you are the sole worker in the salon. Therefore it is up to you to seat customers at the correct station but also to perform whatever tasks are required at each and every station. Naturally the customers feel agitated when left waiting too long and can potentially leave your salon losing you money, though I am proud to say that I haven’t lost one customer as of yet.
To add to the difficulty of the game, you not only have to wash, cut, style, and dry your customers hair, you also have to attempt to do it in the way that they want. For instance, when someone wants you to color their hair, a windows pops up when you begin with the persons face. If you press the arrow keys you can sift through different colors and their facial expression will change depending on how much they like the color. Your goal is to choose the color that they would like best.
As the game progresses, you move to more upscales settings and can purchase upgrades to your salon, which include things like magazines to entertain customers, coffee to pacify them, extra employees to help with washing and drying hair and naturally extra stations to keep business moving.
At times Sally’s Salon can feel really overwhelming, since there is a high turnaround of customers. Luckily the controls are easy to get used to and it is entertaining enough that the overwhelming feeling is easily lost in the fun.
If I could change anything from Sally’s Salon Luxury Edition I would probably put more room between customers or make the game more sensitive to touch. When there are two customers close together the game sometimes has trouble differentiating who you are trying to press on or even move to another station causing a delay in your service which could cause you to lose customers. Towards the end there aren’t any more upgrades available so at that point all you are doing is accumulating money, which to me is pointless.
Sally’s Salon also has a survival mode where you tend to your customers while trying not to lose a single one. The objective is to make the most money possible before you lose your first customer.
