Game Dev Story reviews and comments

I got bored.... After 7 hours!! At the time of writing I am sick and for about 11 hours time (about 10 times last night) I Bought this and then let me in bed to play.... So Tonight I have slept 4 hours. This game is addictive and should not be tested without the consent of a physician.

Positive: Very wel designed Very playable Good genre Love simulation Please make another simulation No bugs Cons Only 20 years of playtime(!) Did complete it in one day Gets repetitive at times Price is to low for this great game Needs more functions and roads to play to make it a long term playable game.

I would put four stars well because it is really too addictive. I played it 5h non stop! And yet I'm difficult with games over time. In short, my regret is that one is perhaps a little bit lost at the beginning but we quickly take the step. P'tain selling 3 Bestsellers for about 5 to 6 million copies, I hardly get to have the license a 25.000 and I can more game dev then. They should lower the price of console licenses.

Who, in his childhood has never dreamed of opening and running one day his own Software House? Game Dev Story is a game that puts us in the shoes of the CEO of a company for the development of video games. It is a game taken care of in every respect, starting from the pixel style graphics that very reminiscent of the TV series Code Monkeys to the dynamics and elements of game, that faithfully trace all the consoles, genres and figures of the real world of video games! Finally, the factor "dependence and addiction" is very high, hypnotizing us to spend the fateful "still 5 minutes" in front of our iOS device...

But Short! Finished in one evening. I Have to admit that the idea is beautiful and the potential of this game are very high, I glued on the phone for hours, so that I could notice its biggest flaw, you get very early in endgame, change licenses and develop on consoles of last generation Not from anything extra if not more money but they do not serve fundamentally to anything. So either restart or go ahead and churns out top games to see the company's bill go up, nothing more. Too bad because it would be nice to have more facets and more goals. Also not supported is iPhonex screen. I Await an updated version with more "pulp".
