Great with some frustration
I bought on Mac as well so I’m well versed in it and replaying it again I have similar frustrations which are: 1) time goes really fast. By the time you finish a game and start developing one for a new platform it seems like another platform comes out and that one is out of date. 2). Topics which bear no relation to gaming. Why can’t they be more real things so you know what should be done. Is level design important in a hospital game? No idea until you get a 2 star score and wasted 11 months. 3). Need to rename games. How many Game #XX do I have to have lol. 4). Replayability. Yes I’m playing again but it’s not really something you play for a long time over and over. You know Dreamcast is gonna come out and its going to bomb. You know pretty much what will happen. 5). The research lab doesn’t produce research points? 6). Timeline gets way off - xbox 0ne is released yet no one knows multiplayer? But still - great game.
Wow, great job, Greenheart. This port is ridiculously good! As many people before me have said, you even managed to improve on the original pretty significantly. Really well done! The only reason I gave you four stars instead of five is because I think I found a bug. I’ve just reached the point where I can create specialists and so I assigned a few people. However, I can’t seem to see anywhere who is a specialist in what. In the original you can see someone’s specialization next to their name on the floor and in the development stage menus. I couldn’t find it in either place. This is problematic for a couple reasons: I would like to assign more specialists, but I can’t tell which specializations I already have; I want my specialists to work on the appropriate task during development, but I can’t remember who does what. Any chance this is a quick fix so I can change my rating to five stars? I love you guys.
Better than PC version
The message spam filters were worth buying this game a second time all by itself. This is a solid, highly addictive game on the PC. Recreating that level of appeal on a mobile platform is rare enough, but doing it without the in-app purchase-game-design-tactics, and at the same time doing it better than the PC version is remarkable. The topics available and much better than PC version also.
I have to add that this game has a very clever evil: if you're one of the millions of aspiring game designers out there, you will find it especially addictive and not spend as much time as you should developing your own game and put that time into playing this game, which will lead to less competition for Greenheart Games (GDT's developer).
That's just brilliant.
