I love shop heroes, but this is a very different game. This is a port of a PC game, recommend you check out reviews to see if you'd like it.

I not yet played this until I get home so let you know on following. Pocket gamer had said the UI Clutter the screen making it hard on small screen. So where people are complaining about it not being universal it maybe only best on iPads

I was about to ask the same question... The description sounds almost identical to Shop Heroes. Only diff I can see is this one let you set up shop in multiple locations? Art style is different of course (but personally prefer shop heroes style).

Anyone played both? Would like to know some detailed comparison. I'm not interested in running 2 shops on one phone
