"Lemonade Tycoon 2 New York Edition" is a simulation game in which the player runs a lemonade business on the streets of New York City. The player makes decisions about purchasing supplies and ingredients, marketing, staffing, pricing, stand locations, equipment and many other aspects of the business. As the result of these decisions is played out in state-of-the art graphic quality, other factors such as weather conditions and changing crowds are added to the mix for a real-life business experience. Players can then tweak their decisions based on the performance of their business and try to achieve refreshment dominance in the city that never sleeps.
"Following our success with the first ‘Lemonade Tycoon,' we are anticipating a strong response to this title," said Dan Hart, general manager of Yahoo! Games. "We expect both casual and hardcore gamers will really get into this sim, which offers many new enhancements and scenarios."
