This is edited review. After all most 3 years, and so many phone changes, game dev story is still and will always be in my storage. I couldn't count how many time I have repeated through it, just pure love and admiration from me to you kairosoft,or should I say "karoisoft"?get it?hah. Anyway, it would be nice if there's an update from you guys, not saying regularly or anything, just something that could spice up the game a bit. Full Review

Here's the negative that killed my experience. Your only way to make good money in game is to act quickly right from the start, or you'll be stuck doing contracts the whole game. Game licensing costs Sky rocket with each new console release and your contract payments come nowhere close enough to help you get started in the later years. Full Review

This game was quite fun, and once you get to hang, it's easy...only if you act and grow quickly in the early game. Lite version has 3 years, I don't think you'll be able to make more than 4 games with that time. The best way to grow quickly is to fill the empty spaces with employees. Full Review

This game is very good and has potential to be great! The full paid for game seems little more than double the demo as far as actual playability. But this game is sooo much fun! With no new consoles ever being made after the PS3 knock off, the challenges after making it to that era become negligable at best.. simply a slow grind to get capital to make your own console.. in which you never truly compete with any others. Needs more variety of consoles to make past 64-bit systems as well as more consoles added after the current line up. Full Review

Man, I bought this on a whim because I was kinda bored. I spent almost 7 hours in one go! It's so addicting, I love the intricate subtlety of the game industry used within. I follow the industry very close; this is really interesting and possibly revealing about what the thought process is behind some of these companies. I really enjoy it! Full Review

It's great, I've completed it at least 3 times. It's time for some new stuff. I dont want to play it anymore. Even if its with better skills its still the same. If you think about putting in some new features I'd like to share some ideas that could bring some changes - may help. Full Review

I recommended this to my cousin and she downloaded it and said "Who knew just clicking a button could be fun!" That shows that people who think this game is retarded, actually PLAY the game. This should win Game of the Year!! EDIT: Two years later, this game is still insanely fun! I'm surprised this game doesn't have that many downloads, it's really fun! Full Review

Game runs perfectly on the S7 Edge, however for the love of god and all that is holy, give us cloud saves!!! I am so sick of having to restart the game when i get a nee phone due to an upgrade or a malfunction. I have pretty much stopped playing this game due to this fact. Full Review

Brought the free version to start with out on a whim. Was bored one night and decided to try it, can honestly say I've become addicted! Honestly worth the £2.49! Great game Full Review

Very fun and addictive game which even after "completing" it multiple times still offers a challenge. It does get repetitive after a while, and the game lacks some finesse business-wise. For example: the creation of a game could use some more control. Full Review

Lots of fun and super addictive, but I really wish you could have more than one save file. I want to start again but don't want to get rid of my other, I'm over twenty-five years in. Full Review

Great game with addictive gameplay.... at least i would say this if it weren't for some of the horribly unfair luck based elements within the game. Huge blackout penaltys, expensive work contracting yielding no results, and so on really wreck the game. At least allow the user some kind of safe guard they can unlock for black outs Full Review

Great game, loose track of time when playing! Only issue i have is that when they hand out awards, the game that gets the "worst game" award is usually the one winning the "grand price" as well. Full Review

The game is fun once you learn the combos. Down the line you can get the Hardware engineer by retraining am employee and maxing out their levels in All the different job types Full Review

At first I was like "I paid $2.50 for this???" Then as I played more and understood I got hooked. You will litterally find yourself developing game after game for hours till you realize how much time has passed and unfortunately have to stop playing. I would honestly pay more for this game its just that fun. Full Review

I love this game. It's a great time killer and it's so fun. I eventually get bored and delete it, but a few weeks later I find myself downloading it again. It's really fun and I recommend it to everyone. Full Review

You make me authenticate every single time I start it. You never used to have to do that. I want to play offline but now I see you went the good ol ea way and affixed some crappy drm to it. Whatever. Glad it was a dollar. I'll just wait for greenhearts game dev story to arrive. It's much better. Full Review

Could you fix this game? Everytime I spend like 1 million dollars on a person to do graphics or sound, they end up giving me like 10 points. It's stupid and it wastes my money and makes the game bad. Full Review

One of the best Tycoon Games! This is one of the better tycoon games in Google Play, Kariosoft in general makes some of the best tycoon games in the app store. Game Dev Story is one of those games you find when your scrolling through your recommended games, and this game never gets old. The first time I purchased this, I played for a good 5 to 7 hours. I love how Kariosoft incorporated the retro graphics, those bring me back to good old days. Full Review

Even though there isn't much to do late-game, it's definitely worth $5 for the fun that I was able to get out of it. Great replayability! Full Review

It's a very good time waster, but nothing more than that. I was playing this from hours before I realised there was not purpose in playing anymore, since after year 20 everything becomes repetitive and stale. New goals or offices would be very nice, otherwise I believe it's not worth the money. Full Review

This game is fun but it's absolutely infuriating that I can make 20 "years" of games and have multiple hall of fame games with 10mil+ in sales and perfect scores and still lose out on Game of the year. Especially when it gives a game worst game of the year and next year that same game gets game of the year while my game is ignored. Full Review

Great game my only problem is that every time you make a console its the same black cube. Maby just to be able to pick what it looks like or even just to pick the colour would be great. Full Review

Great and addictive. Controls are simple to use and the learning curve is small. The game short but is designed to be played over and over to get a better score and to max out all game types. I wish there was a cloud back up for the game though. Full Review

I wish the game has a bit more depth, 20 years timeline maybe is a bit short and also why don't the players have option to expand the company whenever they want? Full Review

It is a good game but I think there can be a few more improvements like multiple saves and making things easier like getting genres and stuff. I also would love it if there could be more easter egg characters that are really good characters and even more and bigger buildings for more staff. Maybe be able to buy clothes for staff and yourself. Maybe just maybe.......... Full Review

Had this game since 2010, and not only one of the best simulation games, but one of the best games on the play store. Buy once and don't need to worry about any micro transactions or waiting 7 hours to upgrade anything. Full Review
