Fresh Start Cleaning Simulator (FSCS) is a simulation game that takes inspirations from Slime Rancher, PowerWash Simulator and Chicken Launcher’s (The Developers) other game of a similar genre called No Place Like Home. FSCS is perfect for those who just want to unwind and relax in autopilot mode, the game is relatively simple in terms of its mechanics and once you’re 5 minutes in, you’re basically set to explore and complete tasks without much mental effort.
I recommend Fresh Start Cleaning Simulator as it does a very good job at making you notice your impact on the world. The game is simple, you’ve got a hoover machine and you can suck in water from various sources around the map, you then shoot water at trash so that it breaks apart the mud and leaves the recyclable content such as bottles and metal sheets, you then suck those up with your hoover and recycle them in the machine to obtain experience which you can spend to unlock perks, equipment and upgrades in the skill tree. You also use water to restore dead trees, plants, weeds, which upon restoration makes the world look beautiful.
I believe there are a total of 4 maps from what I could see. Each map will take you approximately half an hour, I played at a leisurely pace and reached the 3rd map after an hour. I appreciate the fact that the game isn’t overly complicated and is suitable for everyone, regardless of age or experience with games and computers.
Immerse yourself into the game with the intent of being a restorer and it’ll tick all of your boxes, all of your itches and you’ll be rewarded with great satisfaction from seeing the world transition from it’s initial state of brown muddiness, cluttered and disgusting environments to a beauty to marvel at with its green scenery and picturesque lans teeming with wildlife such as rabbits, ducks, birds, wolves, pandas and penguins.
Fresh Start Cleaning Simulator was a pleasure to play through, time passed very quickly and it was a relaxing and rejuvenating experience that I consider time well spent.

Helrato, or Hel for short, is your typical young gamer from Australia who grew up with an older brother that introduced him to gaming. That same older brother would give him an unplugged controller and told him that he was playing, and that's how Helrato's journey into games started - by believing he was playing something when in fact he wasn't playing anything.
Helrato's favourite game franchises include Assassin's Creed, Age of Empires, Call of Duty, Final Fantasy and Metal Gear Solid. With his old favourite games of all time being Brigandine: The Legend of Forsena, Legaia 2 and Dark Chronicle (Dark Cloud 2). If you know those games, mad respect.
