Movie biz tycoon

Anyone downloaded or tried Movie Biz Tycoon? Looks like it could be similar to a kairosoft title but the devs other apps are not rated too high.

(sorry for not providing the link, don't know how but also couldn't find a thread for this game)

As I love to support movie connected apps, a game with movie theme is an insta-buy for me! I'll check it out and gives my impression later.

Impressions...

- No Auto save? hit the facebook link on my first movie revenue and app shut down wo saving progress
- More FAQ or tutorial - how to get more staff etc
- improve filmmaking minigame please, the stars movement is a mess
- Ranking screen shows my movie as number 1 but it had less revenue than the second third and fourth movie, break this down per week? month? lifetime?
- Instead people emailing you for jobs, shouldnt it have a pool of available people you can hire?
- what are the differences between shooting in a park vs green screen? aside from budget of course. how do they impact movie eval - green screen better for scifi/effects heavy movies for example

Hi Kiven, how does this game actually play? Meaning what game is it similar to. You've given lots of feedback, but I can't tell if you recommend it or not. Thanks.

Look out for Pixely People: Making Movies then, it's still currently in beta. I played and enjoyed it very much.

Looks a lot like Game Dev Story in terms of its formula. Love the visual style, though. At that price, I might have to give it a try. There's just so many games to get to at this point.
