I love this game!

Addictive, fun, Endless Replay value! If you want to be a video game developer but don't have the skills, buy this game and have fun pretending!

A good port

A fun game, if a tad expensive for what you get. Playing on my Venue Pro 8 I had a few slowdowns of text fields and navigating the games history and other side swiping menus wasn't very well optimized. All in all, its a fun time waster that you could sink a more than expected amount of time into.

Great Game

Game is fun and the lack of micro transactions is amazing. However, it is very fast paced. It would be nice if you could slow down the game speed to have it as more of a background game (needs input every 15-30 minutes). Or simply allow you time to research the game dynamics more in depth.

Really enjoyable.

Although one might think that this game would get boring after a while, it's still a bunch of fun looking at all the different possibilities you have with your games and all the things you can achieve in the game. I really really enjoyed it.

Extremely repetitive

Not sure how others like this "game" (and I use the term lightly) as it's so repetitive. I guess if you enjoy browser or facebook style games then you might like this. But if you enjoy real PC gaming (or console for that matter) then you may want to think twice about purchasing this. It's simple, it's repetitive and it hides info from you to try to make it more complex than it really is when all that does is to frustrate the player overall. Imagine the murder mystery novel when Agatha keeps certain information from you so that you can't possibly figure out the ending without guessing.... Well, there you have Game Dev Tycoon in a nutshell... Hide the info from you so that you can't be certain to add in some faux complexity that doesn't really exist. 2/10

Amazing! 6 STARS

This game is art. They should build on to it way more! Smash hit! I'd really like them to add a walking animation. Also add a map and stats of what states and countries that like your game the most!

Great Game about Game Making

I've been playing this since highschool, which I have been out of for two years now, and I always love replaying it to see how much better I can do. I especially love getting so much money I can leave it running for a month, not release a single game, and still have a ton of freaking money. 15/10 would recommend, purchase again, then re-recommend.
