    I developed games myself and I just love this one. The struggle the balancing and focusing. I own that game on several platforms now and I just love how you two guys develop games! Keep going like this. Full Review

    Game is fantastic and worth your attention. It's really a lot of fun. The only reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5.... Sadly the lack of original content giving the game a very familiar feel to another sim about making games. Im really not trying to bash anyone for it I'm just being honest and hopefully constructive 🤔 This.game does add more content in a very very easy to understand format. Thank you for this game!!! Great work! Full Review

    A wonderful time waster, and i mean time waster in the best way possible, the game is very fun and time just flies by! I'm very proud of the devs for having the integrity to not shove in microtransactions in a genre perfect for milking the consumer dry, and it doesnt even have drm either! I will continue to support this wonderful team and i give my wishes for them to go far! I hope the game will continue to add things in the future as well, such as topics and genres. One i would suggest is puzzle genre! Would recommend this to anyone whos a fan of management and games of this nature, one of the best there is! 10/10 <3 Full Review

    Despite not having mods this improves on the PC version in every way so far. I'm loving playing this again, and it's on the go! Seriously worth a buy. If you love video game history and love simulation games this is the one for you. 5 stars for sure. Full Review

    I have this game both on my computer and my phone, and i am glad they made the phone version the same with some new little things changed and it all works out. Keep up the good work guys! Both game versions give me hours of fun Full Review

    Just as great, if not better, than the PC version. I've been waiting for this to come out for mobile for so long, and this exceeds all my expectations. Definitely my favorite sim game, and now I can play it anywhere with no compromises in functionality. Full Review

    Tried it on PC a while ago but didn't like it. Now I've made a few games and I just dropped my phone and cheered because I got 8.8/10 On a game I made in my second year. Easily 10/10 Full Review

    Great management sim. Please add the ability to name the game at the end of development rather than just at the beginning. The amount of time I forget and end up with Game 55 is frustrating!😀 Full Review

    Is it wrong that i am modeling my own gaming company on what I learn here? Is it wrong that I lost my first company because I spent too much time building this one? Is it wrong that I'm stopping this review here to go make more games? I THINK NOT!+ Full Review

    I don't buy games much for phone but this one had my interest after seeing it reviewed on Flipboard. Easy to play, looks good and runs very well on my Motorola. Once I worked out best combos game did become easy and I couldn't make my programming team any better. I go back now & then just for the enjoyment. Full Review

    I dot know really what to think of it yet. But from the 1 hour ive played, I can see this game is VERY challenging, but Just as rewarding. One small slip up could leave you bankrupt, and reset days of progress, which is quite scary, but it is a great look into what it's really like to become a game developer, I love it so far, and hope to be amazed by what this game has in store for us.

    One of my wishes has come true: mobile Game Dev Tycoon. I loved it on the PC and I love it on my phone. Same timeless gameplay, smooth controls...the only thing I'll miss is mods (love my slider percentages), but once again, worth every penny and EVERY second spent. Full Review
