  1. Interesting take on genre; gets repetitive
    by green_knight, United Kingdom - Dec 4th 2015

    I loved this when I started playing it, and it definitely has the 'just one more turn' factor. But while you move into bigger offices and learn better engines, each turn is pretty much like the last, and in order to nderstand what consequences your choices have, you have to play far beyond my boredom threshhold. (At some point, I just asked myself why I wasn't coding instead and stopped, and I've not felt any urge to pick it up again.) But if you want a taste of what being a developer is like, this is not the worst introduction.

  2. I love it, JUST MY TYPE OF GAMES
    by Capt_zero, Saudi Arabia - Nov 12th 2015

    Very creative and smart. I like it so much and I'm happy that 9.99 was good deal for it.

  3. Really Enjoyable
    by Andrewyeah, United Kingdom - Jul 4th 2015

    This is a well balanced and fun tycoon.
    Live out your Game Dev dreams, make that game you never got, and create your own titles and franchises and even engines and consoles.

    Charming visuals
    Simple to pick up
    Only downside is perhaps the main game could continue longer until it gets into Sandbox mode
