Already addicted all over again!

Don't let the Japanese theme scare you from playing, it is an excellent hotel/spa simulation game with lots of cute graphics and little details that keep pleasantly surprising me! Worth it if you love game dev story

What iOS games should be

Kairosoft is 2 for 2 with the release of this awesome game. I loved Game Dev Story, but was hesitant to buy this title because of the hotel/spa theme -- didn't really seem very exciting or interesting. Boy, was I wrong. There is so much depth in this game that it will take several play throughs to see/do everything. This is an easy to learn, hard to master game. You can skate by with broad strokes of management and still be very successful in the game, or you can micromanage the crap out of everything and do even better. It always suprises me on how the most basic of games can be the most entertaining. Leave it to the Japanese to make a game that may not look graphically superior, but concentrates on what matters: FUN.

BUY this game if: You appreciate a well developed, well constructed, stable game. You miss the days when gameplay trumped graphics (8-bit FTW!). You have always wanted some depth in a game on your iDevice.

DO NOT BUY this game if: You don't like to actually engage your brain to play games on your phone. You're content with flinging birds at pigs over and over again. You're looking for something "pretty" to show off to your friends.

TL:DR Great game! Easy to learn, hard to master. Always fun.

Best Onsen App there is!

★★★★★This was available before in Japanese only so I debated a long time whether to create a japanese account to buy the app but now that it's come out in English, I am sooo super happy and ecstatic. There are no other onsen (hot springs) games available that I searched at all~! Even in Japanese~ So this is by far the best and only one out there that really makes you feel like the hostess of many 'ryokan' residents who are tired from work/life and want a vacation at your inn!
    Don't be fooled by the simple, cutesy graphics too, the game is far more complex than I expected and it may make you want to restart the game from the beginning on a fresh new data file in order to make your onsen the best and efficient it can possibly be. There is no 'put into inventory' function if you want to remove something placed in your inn. You basically must destroy something first in order to refurbish the place. Which is somewhat realistic but at the same time, a loss of money. For those who enjoy these simulation strategy managing games, it is a challenge that is fun and exciting and tickles your mathmatical brain.
    And if you've never been to a japanese hot springs in real life, I highly recommend it!!  d(゚∀゚d) <two thumbs up!> すごく楽しいわ~!
