Customer Reviews

I really like the concept

Of this game, it's cute and fun and you sorta get attached to the little characters when leveling them up (boosting there polish and lyrics and all that). But there is a lot of room for improvement! Also some really annoying bugs.
Sometimes when in trying to make a solo, the tap button stops working and I lose all the bonus! Also, when the app isn't open, it's like time stops for them which is annoying because I can't have he app open at all times so they can charge.... Bugs like these make the game pretty annoying, it would also help a lot if there were more options, like making an album, or changing there clothes, things like this could improve the game. Over all I do like it and I really wish to see a good update on it...

Pretty much unplayable

I don't know if it has to do with the latest update, but the game just randomly crashes. Also, as someone else has mentioned, time freezes where royalties are not earned, energy is not replenished, and auditions don't end when they should. Once it crashed when I was training, and I lost the energy and money but didn't gain the skill points. Another time it crashed while recording a song, where I lost energy and inspirado, but had no song to show for it. Today was the worst...six times I've tried recording a song, only to have the game crash during naming the song...SIX TIMES. What is the point of playing when you can't even record a song?

Game Dev Story Sequel

This game is the monetization and spiritual successor of the hugely successful Game Dev Story. All of the original 'carrot-on-the-stick' bait is there to keep you coming back for more, but with an utterly immense amount of polish and a cool new musical theme. The tutorials are simple and organically present themselves at different intervals as you unlock new concepts. There is an energy mechanic that inhibits productive player time that can be drastically sped up with a mostly tempting but seldom invasive payment system via 'energy drinks'. Overall, quite good!
