Great Sim. Needs more content.
This is a great Mall sim and the closest thing I'll get to playing Sim Tower again. I loved Game Dev and this title is just as amazing. However, the only problem is that for the $4 pricetag it could use more content. Here's some suggestions:
*Remove Mall Size Limits - a 12 story mall is pretty insane. But there's so many stores and only 1 horizontal upgrade that after you unlock all the stores (not including combos, in which case you need multiple of the same stores) it's almost impossible to fit it all in there.
*Include some initiative for game completion/new game+ - The only real problem I had is that even though the endgame is 15 years, with weeks going by as fast as they do the game ends very quickly. Aside from getting a high score there's no reason to do it all over again. How about a new game+ where you get to keep all your money as well as sell back your stores for money (the higher level they are the more you get) and maybe even some type of prize/special shop for getting a certain amount of clear points. This will encourage people to play it again and again.
Just some ideas. Other than that, great game!
I bought this game on a whim one night when I couldn't sleep, and ended up playing 9 hours straight! All the way through the mall's 15th year! I'm not sure if the replay will be as addicting (probably a good thing since I don't have that much free time!), but that alone was plenty of entertainment value for the price.
For a game that had so much going on, it wasn't a huge drain on my iPod touch's battery. I probably was in hour 3 or 4 before I had to plug it in (nicely, the top bar stays in portrait orientation, so I could keep an eye on battery use but not have it take up real estate in typical landscape mode play).
The only thing that got annoying were the popup windows after and during actions. You have to wait for them to type or calculate before you could dismiss them. Plus, several could have been combined to streamline things.
One improvement I would love is a store manager, where you could see all stores in a list and track leveling, upgrades, sell out times, and profit margins.
Read this review.
First off, in my humble 18 years gaming experience, I've never been hooked on a developers games such as I have with Kairosoft's line up. This isn't fanboy fodder here, I find all their games both addicting and rewarding. I think they all have replay value, including Mega Mall Story (MMS).
I've played the game for a few hours and it's a lot like the free game "Tiny Tower" but with more depth and stats. It takes a lot of the same mechanics and strategy from previous games. The UI is one of the better incarnations of what they have used in the past. Normal and landscape views are supported. As always after beating the game you can access the fast gameplay speed and carry over some bonuses to a new save allowing you to achieve even higher scores. It's a buy for any Kairosoft fan but if you haven't tried out any of their games, this may be the most accessible of them all.
And one more thing...
Stop asking for Grand Prix Story!!! We will get it soon enough. Along with GDS2!!! Chill out!!!
