Completely forgot about this one coming !

Insta-bought, I did play an hour or two on PC and found it enjoyable, and I also loved Game Dev Story, I think this type of game is the perfect type for mobile.

How is it different from Game Dev Story though? I loved GDS and would lose hours to more of that. But where does it sit on the scale from homage to ripoff?

It has quite a few different mechanics, it doesnt just feel like a ripoff.

Id say it feels more in the line of "spiritual sucession" than an homage or a ripoff.

Had no idea this existed, bought on the strength of the review and can't wait to give it a go in a bit.

Decided to take the plunge. Running iOS 11.1.1 on an iPhone X, crashes to the Home Screen after the orange splash screen. Restarted the phone and tried again, no luck.


Edit: Just updated to 11.1.2, reinstalled the game and still crashing! Hope this gets fixed asap please
