Game Dev Tycoon Reviews


Very fun but also VERY frustrating.  deyganwolf  3 star

I do keep coming back and trying again with this game, and it is admittedly addicting, but it’s also way too frustrating. It’s way too hard to figure out what development strategies work with any given game, whether you’ve done dozens of game reports on your previous games or not. Even when I’ve made highly-rated and very successful games, I was basically just guessing. I’ve been a serious gamer for years, so I tried using what I know I like in games and what I’d like to see focused on as a measure of what I should focus on, and that also seems to be a 50/50 guess at best. Given how fast the gametime moves, I don’t have enough time to really learn from any previous mistakes and/or successes, even if the game reports taught me those things, which they do not. It seems like unless I write down what the game reports say on my own, they’re pretty useless. Even when I see “+++” or “- - ?” under Graphics, or A.I., it doesn’t seem to have any effect on whether I full boost that or not, or put it on zero or not. Also, on any given phase of the three, it seems like even when I have the bar set all the way down, it will still show on the right side that 50% is being spent on that focus. It’s just way too frustrating never knowing what may work or not, even with all previous hints saved onto new games.


Great Game to pass the time!  ThatOneGamerYouKnow  5 star

I have played this game for about 2 days now and every time I play it I get better and better. The game provides so much intriguing things to unlock and everything is just overall great. There is not much more to be said but if you think you should buy the game, I highly advise you to do so!!


Great game  Raikunten  4 star

The only real draw back is the curve of difficulty getting started. The game should start easy and gradually get harder not start hard. Big fan though.


The BEST tycoon/business games ever!!  MadCow2424  5 star

By far my favorite app!! I can come back to this game anytime and thoroughly enjoy playing this game! Challenging but extremely fun and satisfying when u make a hit game that changes ur company forever! I’ve on this on pc and iPhone! Worth every penny and probably more! If this game was 30 bucks I’d prolly still buy it! No exaggeration!


Love it! A couple recommendations  Nicole45345345  5 star

Amazing! I like to keep myself up to date with new games so every week I download several (maybe 10-20) and usually end up deleting them all. Very rarely will I purchase one, and if I do, I don’t want it to have in app purchases. That, and The fact that I’m a sucker for a good simulation, I was definitely pleased from the get go. That was one of the selling points for purchasing, that there were no in app purchases. I bought this game on a whim, and I was not disappointed! I loved it immediately and have been glued to my screen! It’s so cool all the different choices you have while making games, and the upgrades for your game are a lot of fun. It’s definitely a lot at first, especially to learn at a very quick pace. After 2 bankruptcies I finally kept up on my third try. I do wish it lasted a smidge longer, I think you could have taken it a bit slower. I bought it last night and it only took me 24 hours (maybe 2-3 hours all together) to beat it. I would like the option to take it a bit slower. Before I can make the game, the trending items go away. If I’m in the middle of making a game, the “unforeseen bugs” don’t get fixed and I lose fans. It’s just a little too fast. Other recommendation is to differentiate the category’s for everything better. And the ability to tell whether something has been selected, as it’s very subtle right now. Can you put the options that will cancel each other out (basic movement, advanced movement, lifelike movement) in a row? Idk just maybe organize em a little more. Colors. Stuff. Thanks so much for the great game. Definitely my go to right now!


Amazing but some suggestions...  XxMXHYMxX  3 star

I love the game. I have had a lot of fun but I do not make enough money form the games I make. For example I will put 10 months in making a game that will only get me 19k and by then I will be bankrupt. I have replayed the game 4 times and made almost no progress at all


Great game only issue  anonplayerjd  5 star

The only issue is that the day after I bought it, it no longer will let me play. I click the app the load screen pops up goes black then poof back on my home screen.


Perfect  chihi1978  4 star

A perfect piece of art, it just needs updates and a sandbox mode


This is EPIC  Sirheatblast  5 star

I first played this on my crappy old laptop I didn’t get into it but when I played it on better newer iPad I loved it.

Thanks for making this game!  Shoares  5 star

Hi! I just want to say thanks to greenheart games for making this game. It was a little pricey but totally worth it! It’s a really fun game and I hope you make a sequel. * wink*


11/10  QuinnicusMax  5 star

Amazing game! I love it to bits!


Great Game  RivalDiamond604  4 star

This is a great game to play and is so addictive. I’ve played this for hours and can’t get enough. A few downsides is that you’re restricted to what you can do. You’ve only got limited hours of a changing enviroment until your stuck with what feels like no challengers in the industry and the console building is also really fun but your also limited with that as well. I love this game but I just hope it’ll last a bit longer than what it does.


The King of Game Dev Sims  Skyyefall  5 star

Have played this game on PC for ages, and was sooo happy to find out this was on the iPhone! If you’re looking for something to casually build up day by day, this game is ideally for you! Can’t recommend enough


Excellent game by some great people  kliaseelly  5 star

Title says it all, can tell a lot went in to this game. Enjoying every second.


Worth It?  Phoenix_Legend  5 star

If you ask yourself if this is worth it for 5 dollars I say it is.The game lets you enjoy The life of a game developer and it’s super fun I could play it for months

Lord Danks Memes

Great Game, Difficulty Options and More Stuff Maybe?  Lord Danks Memes  4 star

The game is awesome. The gameplay is smooth, and easy to understand. Well worth 5 dollars in my opinion, so I would recommend! EDIT: So, I now have a company with well over 9000 million with most of my games getting 7-8/10 reviews, I haven’t yet gotten 11/10 (unfortunately). The game is fun, really. But it’s gotten kind of boring with no new things being added. I’d love more console designs, maybe even custom deigns (you know, like drawing) instead of a premade console design. I’d also be great for more researchable things, like 3D Graphics V8 or V9, maybe even V10. Maybe new sound options, maybe new optimization options? The game is great at the beginning, hard to get going, you’ll go bankrupt at least once of twice, but once you get about 2000 million, you can usually experiment with games to your hearts content. (Just save first, just Incase.) still a good buy, I just wish there were more things for us Year 100+ players... for now I want to lower my review to 4 stars until they add more stuff. But I will update my review once more stuff is added! ORGINAL REVIEW: However, time goes by pretty quick, and your money even quicker. Not to mention that the ratings on your games are almost luck based. I think maybe there should be difficulty selections. For example, Easy difficulty being consumers are more willing to buy the games you develop, and high ratings are a little easier to obtain. Otherwise, great game. It’s worth every single penny, and the developers did a great job with this game!


You are amazing!  Omer009  5 star

Been playing it on my computer and waited years! For it to be released on iPhone


After 20+ hrs, crashes on open  rickyessenacid  5 star

UPDATE - game no longer crashes, just as inexplicably as it started. Still a joy to play. All data is safe.

Red the Tree

The Best game!!  Red the Tree  5 star

Easily the best tycoon/Simulator game ever!!


Amazing game... but...  ShayShay2023  5 star

I LOOOOOOVE THIS GAME! I BEAT THE GAME AS THE COMPANY “ICED PINES” AND I HAD EVERYTHING UNLOCKED, THEN I DELETED IT but I just wanted to say.... it was relatively quick to beat, and then I got to year 1000-something, and honedtly there isnt much else to do in the game once u get far enough. Minor complaint tho!


Super fun  krezyyyyyyyy  5 star

I beat this game in 3 hours.. I made myself a billionaire in just 3 hours. I thought this game could bring a complexity type but I guess it is what it is.. this game is fun but after u beat the game it’s nothing tbh..

Forsaken reviews

Great game could add a thing or two  Forsaken reviews  5 star

So I just need to say this is one of the best games I have ever bought, definitely worth 5 bucks. But I wish there was a sandbox mode where you would get unlimited cash, I also wish the were different difficulties.


Great game lots more potential  Mackhands  5 star

Dunno if the devs read these but this game can be so much bigger, maybe the game expands to players running publishing companies, allow players to remaster their old games and port old games, manage multiple teams etc


Pls make moar games like this  DBS and DBZ LOVER  5 star

This game I hands down best game I have ever played well on mobile please add more stuff to the game and as well as make a game like this like a movie creating one cause you have made a game that makes me have a new respect for game developers
