Just an amazing and easy game to play.
This is cool and I love it
Give a lot of insight of what it was like to go through personal life periods of game changing games trying to be number one
The game has a well developed complexity to it. Quite fun and addictive, though there is a learning curve to it. Initially I didn’t like it but have since come to enjoy it.
For the nice letter I hope you make more games
It gives me a challenge to be creative into making my own game and to make them a big hit
This game is amazing I have spent way too much time on it haha. One minor thing though is when you have finished a game and everyone needs to go on vacation while getting bugs out it is super difficult to press the bottom left person when you have the hardware lab open. The button blocks them so you always press the lab. Other then that super amazing!
Worth the money, plenty of gameplay for the price.
Keep it up it’s a awesome game and take that haters
The text should be adjustable. I have perfect eyesight and still find it too small of text. This would be 5 stars, but the lack of ability to adjust the font and size of text lowers it one star.
This game plays well, has fun gameplay and very fitting graphics!
This is an amazing game. Although if getting it, you should probably go for the PC’s version.
I think updates would allow for your company to earn some more money and create the best games possible, I think that you should mainly earn fans from updates and only a tiny bit of money.👌otherwise it is perfect
I love this game! Not only is it fun but it’s also educational on gaming history. Although there are some flaws: 1. Monthly costs are too big. What are we paying for anyway (other than workers)? I often go bankrupt because of this. 2. Once bankrupt, why can’t we still be hired by other companies and continue even if not in control? 3. It’s a little too much money. 4. We can’t choose our first 4 topics Thanks for reading! :)
I was on the game for 3 days then when there was a update it would not let me play so plz can I have a refund
This game is addicting and fun at the same time! I love getting good reviews for my games. A great game and an interesting concept. Thanks GreenHeart!
Why are my games bad i spent so much and their supid thank you and pls fix it
I literally have nothing more to say, if you’re going to buy a game on the app store choose this one!!!!
Best game ever
I love this game but I do wish other players could see your games and rate them.all in all I love this 10 out of 10 game
This game was The PERFECT level of difficulty and mechanics. Very rarely there would be a bug so small it is almost unnoticed. Perfect game 11/10
BEST GAME EVER COULDENT BE BETTER
I play this game all day every day, I love it so much 😀
First of all, for all the review skimmers out there reading this, it’s definitely worth the $5.00! So, I only got this game a couple days ago, but I am absolutely addicted to this game, and my whole family knows it as well. It’s a very unique game, in a good way! For example, this game is pretty different to the other “tycoon” labeled games nowadays, which are usually idle and you don’t do too much work. This game, however, is a true tycoon. You start out in a garage, with limited money, but over the course of 30+ years, you rise to be the top dog of modern video games, and have absolutely TONS of money. Or, you go bankrupt 😄 but I think it’s a very valid part of the game. The game is a learning experience, and you will never stop learning, even after you’ve discovered all the best combos and you’ve beat the game 100 times over. For example, I don’t want to give away too much of the game, but I recently discovered that publisher deals are an amazing way to earn tons of money in a short period of time. Another thing that’s amazing about this game is that it is true my satisfying. Just imagine making 6-7 star games for a long time, then suddenly, you make a game that has a 10 star rating! Not only that, but you begin to make millions in just one month! Now imagine getting two 10 star reviews, or three, or even four! It’s an amazing way to satisfy your desire to succeed, and I think that’s the biggest reason as to why it’s so addicting. I literally have been playing this game for hours on end lately. I think that the best way to improve this game is to just keep updating it, and improving. I noticed that you haven’t been updating the actual game lately (According to the update history). You’ve just been fixing bugs, and allowing compatibility, and all that, which is totally fine, I’d prefer that my game wasn’t buggy 🙂 but I think you should update the actual video game more often, and keep things interesting. Other than that, great game! I’m looking forward to seeing this game grow and develop into something more than just a small game for a small percentage of the world. Uipyo
This is an excellent game, and it’s not easy either. You actually feel excited when your games get good ratings! Balancing research, marketing, costs, etc. is really difficult and makes the game fun. The cute shoutouts to major moments in game dev history are great as well. Quality game from a promising indie team!! I hope they make more stuff. :)
I’m only adding 1 star because I’m currently bored with it. I apologize for this but I feel that there should be more content in this game, such as more technology and being able to open up more companies
I usually don’t get mobile games because they our very bad but this game was extremely fun and probably the best mobile game I’ve ever played. This game is definitely worth the price!
Worth paying for
I don’t seem to be able to get past no matter what I do. How do you make decent money to get to the next stage? I’ve played several games and don’t know how to move on. It’s annoying and makes it hard to enjoy the game.
I have an iPad 4 (gen) and it won't download and it charged me. please help!!
Love this game I will give it 5 stars it’s the best game dev on the AppStore and it’s the only game dev game I will have on my phone please make more thx 👍🏻
Wasn’t sure if this would be my kind of thing, but I have to say I’m really pleased I took the plunge. Game Dev Tycoon is superb. It takes aspects of game development and creates a very addictive simulation.
The game refused to function on release but now it’s just as good as I remember.
Been playing this so much on my laptop. So glad it's on iOS now.
So addicting, so super fun. Absolutely love it. You gotta play it!
