TVTower - Ein Tribut an Mad TV | A tribute to Mad TV.


Du bist Manager eines Fernsehsenders in diesem kostenlosen Spiel . Lenke was gesendet wird und wann. Verdiene Geld durch Werbeeinnahmen und treibe die Konkurrenz in den Bankrott. Hole Zuschauer vor die Flimmerkiste in dem Du brandheiße Nachrichtenstories sendest und mit spannenden Livesendungen Millionen von Mitmenschen am Einschlafen hinderst. Fertigprodukte aus Hollywood sind nicht so dein Ding? Tja, Eigenproduktionen könnten Quotenhits werden - oder aber teure Millionengräber.


TVTower is a free game where you are the manager of a television channel. Strategically schedule broadcast messages. Earn money with commercial breaks and drive your competition to bankruptcy. Broadcast breaking news stories or live shows to keep viewers from sleeping. Not interested in commercial products from hollywood? No problem, running your own products may lead to critically acclaimed ratings, or a luxury white elephant.
