* Broken houses, cursed houses and houses for sale do NOT generate
* Repair and exorcise houses as soon as possible.
* The value of the houses in this game are somewhat construed. You
ALWAYS purchase a house for what it is worth...but...you can NEVER
sell a house for what it is worth; usually a minimum of 20% lower
than the worth.
* It is generally better to reject the first offer on a house when
trying to sell as generally the second offer is better. The game
likes to catch you off guard and second guessing because this doesn't
always hold true.
* Be quick in deciding if you want to purchase a property as they are
not up for sale long.
* The costs to strengthen, exorcise, repair and obtain a permit are
based on the value of the house. The higher the value, the higher
* Strengthened and Charmed houses lose that protection when the house
is upgraded...it keeps that protection if sold.
* You can sell a strengthened or charmed house and have it count towards
a goal objective.
* It is generally better to build the most expensive house available
then sell to gain capital for purchasing properties.
* There will be added goals on some levels that generally appear after
the primary goals have been accomplished.
* On levels where you have to "zap" characters to finish the level;
it's best to try to zap them as close to the edges of the scene as
possible to avoid them cursing houses.
* It's best not to strengthen houses when you have to make repairs on
houses as part of the goals until the goal has been met.
* You will only build or have available some "special" buildings one
time. These buildings are always part of the goals. i.e. mill, tavern,
market, florist, castle, etc. and are significant to the story-line.
* There are bonus levels available after receiving the gold medal on all
levels within a section. The bonus levels are not timed with a monetary
goal to finish the level.
There are 3 spells that can be bought and used multiple times after building
