    this is a good game, played this a year ago, played a lot of other games but none of them is fun / impresse me. this is the only one.

  2. Justsomeguy-avatar

    mod apk Needs a tutorial to explain how the staff impacts output. gameplay doesn't seems fun. a lot of waiting around to fail, selecting something in a menu and game picking something else, not being able to go back to hire screen, etc. one good thing was this demo let me avoid paying for the full game!

  3. G. David Hanna-avatar

    apk Is Not Responding...over and over. I have not been able to take even a look inside this game. I have tried it on multiple devices. Fix your game. I'd give it a big fat zero but that is not an option. Uninstalling game forever.

  4. Kristine Kuhn-avatar

    download I love this game. It is developed and no bugs to speak of. If I were you I would try the game out and see if you like it.

    its good my bigfest issue is the reviews, they seem overtly/unfairly negative for the combinations. I get the logic but for combinations like High School and Life shouldve been a bit better in perspective.

  34. A Google user-avatar

    It's garbage

  35. ZW Wong-avatar

    A very simple concept for a game but extremely fun. My only issue with the game is that because I didn't know how to activate the buttons on the bottom I was very confused as to how to select your game type. I love the indie style graphics. It gives off Pokémon vibes and that's a winning formula in my book. Overall, this is an extremely simple game but also extremely fun. Definitely buying it when I have the money. If you're looking for a good game developer tycoon, look no further this game will give you everything you want. It even has an option to change your game title which some other games don't have.

  36. Derrick Becking-avatar

    Derrick Becking


    I like games, so I thought maybe a game about making games would be fun. It is fun. If you were looking for an in depth simulator where you have to deal with HR and the nuances of video game development, you won't get that here. This game is easy to learn and is pretty fun. My puzzle game that featured pirates didn't do so well, but it was still fun. My biggest issue with this game is the 14 character limit for naming the studio and the titles of the games. All the titles I cook up are too long and it really hamstrings my creativity. Otherwise this game is excellent and I'll consider buying the full edition.

  37. ShadowOfSkills-avatar

    The fact that we have reached a point where there is a videogame about making videogames is an amazing one. And this game captures that with its whimsical sprite-based pixel art. And cute in-game jokes. Lots of them. Overall, the game plays out really fun, and cute, with lots of creative freedom. But it could be better. My biggest complaint is that you have to wait for the item guy to come to you. And he only shows up so often. Usually, when you don't have the money you need to buy items. Still, good game.

  38. Ruth Ross-avatar

    Its ironic that the game has the same problem as one of the games your trying to make. First leveling up seemed to just cost you more. Leveled staff neither produced more of say "fun" nor did they succeed more often on boosting a stat on a game. Neither contractors or staff seem willing/able to produce more than one game. It would be nice to have a better indicator for when pay was due. Also i agree with another reviewer you should be able to buy the boosts from a shop. Maybe be able to buy a single use one? Also a major oversite is being able to take a game already produced and port it to another platform or make a part 2.

  39. Lathryn Peach-avatar

    I like this game, only the problem is, they should extend the time a lot more, not in just four game years, and they tell us to just buy the full version. Im not gonna spend $2.50 bucks for a game that allows me to play it forever. In other words, about the game... the game is simple, addictive, fun, smooth, and good graphics. But, please extend the time, just about 30 mins of fun isnt worth it. Next time, think of the gamers that dont pay to play.

  40. Benjamin James-avatar

    I started with the Lite version, and I got hooked pretty quickly, so I don't have any complaints with it except for this one minor detail: When I decided to buy the full version, My progress didn't transfer, and I had to start all over again. It was pretty disappointing. Other than that, I think this is a fun and entertaining concept for an app!

  41. João Ciocca-avatar

    Played through all the demo, and loved it. Nice little one. Except for not having landscape mode - and from what I read on the internet, this isn't the only game from Kairo that has this problem - aside from Beastie Bay, and even so you need to purcahse landscape. I'd buy a full version of this one if it had landscape mode - it really gets to me to play on portrait on my Shield Tablet =/

  42. Thomas Andre Saldaña-avatar

    Thomas Andre Saldaña


    Woah! I wish that I could be a very responsible video game director in time, with this Pre-made game (DEMO Version). So much really challenging that you need to work hard and maintain its current situations in the game development. But it's better to play in the FULL Version of this game as well as, more and more features should be available anytime soon.

  43. Diab D.-avatar

    Seems like an interesting game but it crashes after only a couple minutes of play. First, the sound cuts off. Then, the game becomes unresponsive until it eventually crashes or needs to be force closed. This happened with numerous different actions without a pattern. Nexus 5 running 4.4.4 with CM11.

  44. Chad Metcalf-avatar

    Only complaint is that lite version data doesn't transfer to the full version. Other than that it's a great time killer whether it's needed for five minutes or two hours. Can't understand people wanting the game for free though. It's $2.50 people, beside the fact that it's cheap, why can't you support a company that makes great mobile games? If anything ever teaches you about the fact that developing games costs money, it's this game right here.

  45. Alex B-avatar

    If you play and like this game, then you obviously understand the basic concept that creating games costs money. All you whiners complain that the devs don't just hand it out for free? You're retarded. My low vote coincides with other OnePlus One comments: game freezes, always after selecting a writer for a new game, so i can't play this at all at this stage. I hope devs see this comment amongst all the trash.

  46. Glen Obryon-avatar

    This is a great concept for a video game, but the fact the I have to stop playing the free version at a certain point in time makes me feel robbed. You could have in-game purchases and ads to potentially make MORE money than would be made with a paid version. Also, it is way too hard to get enough money to try to make a game on a newer console. There is a very miniscule amount of genres. Also, the player should get to choose when the game leaves the market. With a little bit of work, this game could be one of the greatest. For now, there is a lot to be desired.

  47. Shake Master-avatar

    Prices are ridiculous. Employees are terrible and apparently can't do their jobs 2 projects in a row. If an employee fails on boosting a stat you get 20 bugs immediately. That's just part of what made this game the exact opposite of fun. I like a challenge but this is just infuriating on every level

  48. Alex G.-avatar

    Unlike most free version of mobile games, you let us experience it. The only thing I don't like is button thing on the bottom, but don't take that too harshly. Overall great experience, I will buy full very soon!

  49. sam-avatar

    Love this game, I really hate the people who rate the game 1-3 star, how the hell are kairosoft supposed to earn money if the full game was free, the full game is really cheap, just pay your parents it's not hard.... My 1st kairosoft game back in 2012 ish i believe, don't listen to the haters kairosoft and certainly never put ads on any of your free games! 😀

  50. Ace 67-avatar

    They have little to no ads in the lite version. That's how these guys make their money off their time spent developing games like this. Either through ad revenue on a free game, or by selling it the old fashioned way. If you got your wish granted, there would be a lot of annoying ads. On a different note, I will compare this game to game dev tycoon. It's a little more complicated in allocating resources, but a similar concept. It needs better balancing. Too forgiving. I made 750k off a game that got a 4.5.

  51. Marc a-avatar

    Awsome additive game. More detail then ud think. Good art. For all the idiots who say full game should be free need to get some brains... why dont u spend all your time making something and give it away for free.... morons.

  52. Davide Coppola-avatar

    interesting concept, but poor implementation. I'd love to play a game like this one, but there's so little control on your games that's a waste of time. Thanks for releasing a free demo at least as this saved me the money I wanted to spend for the full version.

  53. Justin Scott-avatar

    I get that you want to make profits, but it is kind of a rip off that you can only play for so long before you have to buy it. What about the players who can't buy apps because of their parents? This concept makes some people dislike your games because it forces you to buy them to keep playing. You should at least just have one version of the app and put a price on it. I love this game but I am really disappointed that once I got really good, I have to start over and/or buy it. It is a disappointment.

  54. Oliver Dixon-avatar

    This game is absolutely flawless. And to those complaining about the graphics: One, this game was made in the 90's. And two, it doesn't matter about how the game looks, it matters about the gameplay. Kairosoft are the best game developers on the planet, and I'm happy to be part of the community.

  55. Shaun-avatar

    The gameplay is fun and cute despite not making much sense. However the UI is horrendous. Movement is very sluggish (even the menus), and there's a lot of leftover blank space. It looks like a very poor port from a console.

  56. nathan theodorus-avatar

    nathan theodorus


    Not a bad game, simple & addictive at first. BUT.. it does not have many options, the way to make games is not really realistic, and the reviews we get is not helping at all. At the start, you'll get reviews scoring 3-5 out of 10, and IT STILL SELLS QUITE WELL WITH GROWING FANS! (wtf?) And, when we get to the top , ALMOST EVERY GAMES we make will get scores around 8-10 and becomes the top seller ALL THE TIME (unrealistic) ,and then it gets boring.. Please make this game a lot more complicated and realistic.

  57. Profezur Dinamight-avatar

    Profezur Dinamight


    Have u ever heard of GDTycoon yet? Well this is basically a ripoff of it but nonetheless as addictive as the pc game. Great job bringing a PC game to Mobile. Clap clap

  58. Mythane-avatar

    I hate the fact that when you start getting really into the game it just stops and makes buy the full game, it like when you would beat an old NES game and it would just say, "Congratulations!", super unsatisfying. What's weird is that the game is only like around $2, why not just make it free for some of us kids who aren't allowed to spend money on this type of crap. I've started to really enjoy the game and I'm debating whether or not this is better than Game Dev Tycoon.Hope you took my opinion seriously.

  59. Jess H-avatar

    I tried three different game approaches, all games produced were failures. You can create good combinations and raise the levels of your employees and open plenty of game types but it never seems to work out. I would not buy the premium, unfortunately.

  60. Aba Mi-avatar

    But the game crashes before i could really do anything. Using OnePlus One with Cyanogenmod.

  61. Christian Nicholas-avatar

    Game title is only limited into 14 characters, i like to make creative game titles but 14 characters is not enough.

  62. Jangjik Bae-avatar

    The graphics gliched a lot and it ended so quick. I would buy the full game but I might get tired of it and waste my money

  63. DustinCPlayzGamez-avatar



    It is good I like it [1 Problem: Please remove lite versions then take non-lite versions to free I want free games that's you can play as long you want PLEASE DO IT!]

  64. Earl-avatar

    I can't stop playing this game.... Definitely the most addictive game I have ever played. Great music and great ideas. Keep up the good work. 概率

    Great but why so many pay to play games? I do personally enjoy your games. But I don't spend on phone games at least can you make more free versions?

    Great game! It's really sad to fire someone though

  67. Andrew Hope-avatar

    They should just call it "roulette simulator" cause nothing you do matters at all. Would definitely not pay for the full version

  68. marxist garcia-avatar

    I really like this game, it's really really sad that the full version require's payment. We your fans would really like if you make the full version free..... thanks

  69. Joey Tocchi-avatar

    It's a really addicting game but I don't have any money to buy the full version which is sad because I wanted to sell my robot adventure game on the first portable game console but year 5 came so I can't play the game again.:(

    The game's concept and gameplay is amazing once you get the hang of it. I would rate 5 stars for the game but when we've finally reached year 4, play time is over (for real and fast) and we need restart the whole game. It's fun to play but the game's too short.

  73. Justin Teasley-avatar

    Its a great casual little game. With the lite version alone I've put in more hours than I care to admit. Its enough to have me explore other titles by the developer.

  74. Jacob Rosser-avatar

    This game is perfect for people like me. Nerdy, gamer, all around Geek!! I LOVE IT!! :D

  75. Ender Crystal-avatar

    My tablet runs games really slow but this game ran smoothly and that's not the only reason I'm gonna buy this its cool its fun this is a must buy

  76. Power Glover-avatar

    Very good. Can be better if made a free app. Just add optional microtransactions and you can run home to the bank.

  77. Alex-avatar

    Its a fun little game, can easily become addictive. Its not what I expexted but nevertheless a fun game. It is not for me, but its not a bad game!

  86. Ant Ko-avatar

    The lite version can only be played till Y4 M3 W4. I can play for full time if I have the full version.

  87. Felix de Cat-avatar

    Every time a fan letter arrives an error occur. Please fix, it's getting annoying.

  88. Kyle Maxwell-avatar

    UI is too hard to use. Also don't have a good sense of the possibility space as a player.

    I made a game and name it Call of Duty.Sold over 750k units.All in the free version mode.Polite Request to Developers:You need to find a way for players to progress with the game in free version to full game.I lost all my "call of duty" fame after buying the full game
