Game Dev Tycoon reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from French
I bought Game Dev Tycoon ds out on PC because I'm a fan of simulation game like this. I loved it on PC and my joy was endless when I saw that the game was also on iOS! I therefore bought and adored. I am often retuying to buy full games on iOS but for this game I do not hesitate for a single second more than the game is the first game of this wonderful startup! And it is with pleasure that I push and help this startup continue its dream in the video game and create other games! I know that they are going to make a new one and I look forward to seeing it! In short, stop reading and go on this game !!

Although a little boring since the principle remains the same throughout the game, I really love it, not only thanks to its addictive side and the many proofs that must be overcome that add spice and stress to the game (the game traces the history of the computer, going from the first pc to the PS5 what I find an excellent idea) the game although it remains quite short (game ended in ~ 9h but knowing that I am a great geek) we puts in the shoes of a CEO who will have to develop his video game business and lead sales, asking for a certain strategy and management! In short: BUY THE GAME IT IS REALLY WORTH

A really beautiful game, but from the best ... The more help over time, the player finds himself lost and does not know how to manage, so he ends up in a broken bank immediately (already for the 3rd time ...) Or you should add the unlimited option so as to make the player's imagination run wild, from being able to really get to the final goal of 40 years, obviously he will have to be good at developing research, etc. ... but doing so a little difficult, you have to study a little and sincerely for a game in which I should free up a little in the mind it becomes a bit ... unnerving ... I'm very happy to have helped you by buying this game, for ... that flaw always, add that option, and I never get tired of playing with it !!!

After hearing about the game, I downloaded it and played for a few days. The game is so incredibly captivating and has a high addictiveness! I subscribed to the newsletter and read the post about piracy, which really made me think. The game simply deserves to be bought. Immediately I uninstalled the old app and asked my friends to buy the game as it is definitely worth it! Thanks to the game developers for this really great game. I bought it afterwards and hope that more will come from the developer in the future! In the future, before I just download games, I'll get the demos and watch some gameplay so I can buy directly instead of being a pirate. +1 fan
