713747_2jpgEA has released an ad-supported version of Lemonade Tycoon for free in the App Store [link].

The game originated as a Shockwave-based game and has since been ported to many platforms. The goal of Lemonade Tycoon is to sell lemonade for profit:

Lemonade Tycoon is one of the most in-depth and intensely featured business simulation games available. By applying savvy business strategies and increasing your cash reserves, you can quickly move to the top of your game. Experiment with different tactics to discover the secret recipe for success and save up to six games at once. Manage your business from every aspect imaginable ─ customize location, supplies, and even the climate!

In a break from its existing games, EA has released this game as a free version with "tastefully integrated sponsor messages". Features include:

  • Manage an entire business including pricing, inventory and supplies, marketing and advertising, and your own staff!
  • Customize weather, supplies and your secret lemonade recipe in an imaginative location, all while maximizing visibility, allure and overall profits
  • Multiple customer types with unique, interactive personalities
  • Open-ended “Career Mode” and “30-Day Challenge”

    and it's listed as Lemonade Tycoon (International)

    Have they stopped working on NFS to put out games like this? It was supposed to come out in November 2008. 8-)

    • snowy2004

      Well, If it's any indication, the game isn't listed in the "Coming Soon" section of Lemon Tycoon's description. Only Tiger Woods is there.

    • Brad Newsom

      EA isn't just one studio. Its a whole bunch of studios strewn across the world. When they release something like this, chances are its not from the same studio.

    Thanks for the article. I downloaded it this morning and have been playing it all day, but when I tried finding it again to see if it got any reviews, it wasn't there anymore. I'm glad I got it while it was there.

    I deleted it this morning! I was at a point where I got a advertise popup after every third day! That sucks!

    I would pay for a good version but this is wasting my time!

    The absolute best Honey Lemonade Recipe: 1/2 gallon warm water, 1/2 cup honey, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice. Just mix it all with your hands (their warmth will disolve the honey and sugar) and pour mixture into a gallon container filled 3/4 with ice. You can even add a sprig of lavander for an asian flare.
