Excellent and Addictive game

I originally played the PC version and became hooked! I played through it three times and found each one enjoyable. When I heard this one was out in mobile form, I had to give it a try. I have played Game Dev Story as well, and while that game is fun for a bit, it felt much more formulaic then Game Dev Tycoon, which I believe was released first. The redesign to mobile that the developers did plays well in my iPhone 6S. I can tell that thought was given to how it would look and feel as opposed to being rushed. The other part about this game that I love is Greenheart Games stance against “Pay to Play” or “In-App” purchases. When you buy it, you get the whole thing and are never pestered with advertising or nudged to buy anything additional in the game. It’s not the most profitable model of game anymore, but it makes the overall experience so much more enjoyable in my opinion. It’s an all around great game and worth the money.

Worth the work

Game consistently crashes on launch after purchase, and requires some tampering with your phone settings in order to get it working. The fix isn’t complicated, but it would be nice if the publishers put a warning or made the fix more obvious. As of now you have to navigate to their website to find it. After you get it going however, it is a great game. The mechanics in game are fun, allowing you to discover different combinations including game topic, genre, platform, etc. and the best choices to make a hit game aren’t obvious and require some logic and guesswork. If anything my only complaint is that it can get too complicated as you start to hire employees and develop larger games, but it does get simpler and easier to understand the more you play, and once you finish you can restart as it has a lot of replay value. Easily worth $5.

Time flies by when playing. Literally

I moan the same frustrations as other players; the time goes by tooooooo fast. Also the algorithm for create good games are way off. I’ll have a blockbuster then 6 straight duds using what I gained from game reports. In regards to the game reports; it’d be nice if the knowledge you gained from researching them actually applies to the next game you develop. I played a similar Game Dev Tycoon and it seems you guys expanded on some of their shortcomings but created more games in your own design. Let’s slow the time down and stop working at breakneck speed. Allow users to really study where they went wrong in the last game instead of forcing more duds into the market. Also let us develop more than 1 game at a time if you insist on the clock moving so fast. All in all a solid game but very frustrating when almost everything you develop comes down to a proverbial crap shoot.
