What is it?

As mentioned, Fix-it-up 80s: Meet Kate’s Parents is a time management game. The main objective of the game is for you to turn a series of car lots into successful car trading/car repair outlets.

The ultimate goal is, of course, to showcase the cars and sell them at profitable prices.

How does it work?

The gameplay is pretty simple. You buy cars as cheap as possible, send the cars to various areas in your shops to do the necessary work, sell the cars, hire new employees from your earnings ,and eventually turn your car repair/car trading shops into a profitable business.

These include raising specific amounts of money, buying a number of cars, and so on. Each level also has a time limit to fulfill specific objectives. Once objectives are complete and done, that’s when you complete a level and proceed to the next.

Is it contagious?

For a time management game, Fix-it-up ’80s: Meet Kate’s Parents certainly has all the bells and whistles, two of which will get you hooked into this game: 45 levels of varying difficulty and objectives, and excellent graphics. The game has everything you’ll look for in a time management game.
