App description: This is a classic board game of late USSR. The russian "Monopoly" of 80s -90s, and it calls "BusinessMan".
"Russian Monopoly?"-you may ask-"What's the nonsense!" and you'll be wrong. Soviet people has spent lots of their free time playing it. This is much funny and venturous game thanks to additional features we created. Now we want to show you this bestseller of USSR!

*** Would you like to try it first? Check out a free version "BusinessMan - Free"! ***

Your feedback is greatly appreciated! Love!

This looks good. I like the way it all works with the board auto-rotating and zooming. Interesting to see the Russian companies on the board, though there are some familiar names there. The instructions are in Russian language but not a problem if familiar with Monopoly. The board and most other things are in English. Not everything though. Every so often the screen gets smashed and an urgent notice appears in Russian. Something major is happening but I don't know what. Wasn't obvious how to start the game at first - press the bar between the two dice to get them rolling. After that it was intuitive. The description says this is more complex but it's not clear how. There needs to be some English narrative explaing any differences.

Stronsay, Thank you very much for this review! Well, instructions and rest of other messages will be translated soon, i apologize for that.
Smashed screen and picture of invoice means you stopped on a Penalty Section and must pay 20 000.
This game has a bit complex rules than original American Monopoly. There are buildings, loans, selling rules and so on.
iPhone version coming soon with new features of course.

Thanks for the prompt reply. Useful to know about the 20,000 penalty! I'm picking up on the additional rules as I go along. Some interesting variations on the American version; and I'm doing better after realising I have to tap on the coins outside of the board to collect any income due.

Update 2.5

Hello!
The game is updated to version 2.5!

Lots of bugs were fixed and may be added some new
But a happy moment is that the game contains now a new mode called "Campaign".
There are some levels, each of them has its own task to complete to start next one.
Collected money and some part of logic moves from level to level.
Nice game.
