I enjoyed this plenty on Android when it came out. I ended up killing the phone in my battery a few times, resorting to me playing with a tiny little cord hooked up to the wall. Good times.

Is this just now coming out for iOS? Another reason to feel sooo bad for non-android users.

Anyway, Kairosoft is among the best mobile developers in the business. For those android users out there who have skipped by their games go back and give them a try. Look up, gran prix story, world cup story, hot springs story, & cruise ship story. Mega mall story and epic astro story just came out recently, though I haven't gotten to play either yet.

I'm with the others, this is an excellent game. It's probably the best couple of bucks I've spent on a mobile game.

Game Dev Story has been out for iOS for over a year.

iOS has the following exclusives: Venture Towns Oh Edo Towns and Pocket Academy

Android has the following exclusives:
World Cruise Story
Epic Astro Story

the rest (game dev story, pocket league story, mega mall story and hot spring story) are multiplatforms.

Playing the best of both world on my iphone and my girlfriend's android

I really liked the idea, the art, but I'm not a big fan of the gameplay implementation. The evolution of your company, the quality of each batch of employees, the progression... It's all a bit weird. I'd like it a lot more if they finetuned the game progression a lot better.

I thought it was a neat spin on simulation games, or at least a new theme of one. It was fun for a bit but personally, it didn't hold my attention for long, I think mainly because Kairosoft has released like ten of these games, all virtual the same with just a different theme.

I probably put more hours into this game than any other last year. I ended up with neck and shoulder cramps every night for a couple of weeks from sitting in the same position for 4-5 hours.
