Good for gamers

After Dungeon Village and zero Towns, I regretted buying this Kairosoft game at first. But that was before I really gave it a chance. After playing for a decent bit, here are some pros and cons.

-Cute retro-chibi pixel graphics
-No in-app purchases
-Great concept/idea
-Get to name/customize your game/chose genre/console etc.
-Are able to chose your staff and move their seats
-There are gaming events going on such as new console reveals, game award shows etc.
-Staff gets fired up which is neat to watch
-Feels almost like you're really a game developer, which is exactly how it should feel

-Everything is pricey in-game and only gets higher, especially a new contract, hiring good people, some game genres, boosts and much more
-Hard to get a good score from the critics, win an award etc.
-Some game genres the game considers as 'bizarre' combinations, which many times aren't bizarre
-Time goes by too fast (years/months) in the game
-Why lose fans when you don't put out games for a while, especially when you're doing a contract instead?

Pretty good for a firstie.

It doesn't crash and it was their first game, surprisingly. It is one of the best games I have. I bought a bunch of their games and decided to name it all the same thing and put it into a folder and made that my company. If you are crashing the check the phone... I use an iPhone 5c and an iPad mini 4 all on version 9.0.2 or whatever number it is. I just update it when it notifies me. The only downside is that it stops a bit early. Why not add in the PS4 and the Wii U? There are so many new consoles that they could put in the game. So, listen to this one request. Add more consoles that appear further on in the game

All patched up and amazing!

Updated review- They released an update today and it is back to all its old glory! Once again, my favorite mobile game ever made! Hands down! Thank you!

Old review- Ssjraj is right on. This game is so much fun. This is the first mobile game I have really lost myself in. But I am stuck with the same bug raj is seeing. I can't get it to go any further without crashing. As of now, not worth the money I spent.
