Game Dev Story is probably the best game I've played on the iPhone so far!

The first game I've truely been addicted to on my iPhone. I've bought hundreds of games since December and it's the first one but Angry Birds and Monkey Island 2 that I've enjoyed. Reminds me of like a Theme Hospital or Diner Dash but about Game development. Really kool game for gamers and it's just fun trying to be the best develoment studio.

Hope they expand on the game in the future like The Movies on the PC or something.

If the devs update this game every once in a while it could easily turn every sim game to dust and beat angry birds/cut the rope on the charts. I just bought it yesterday and I've already played it for a total of 3 hours and have made 12 games.

Isn't this just a port from another (lower-res) platform? I wouldn't expect much in the way of updates or improvements if that's the case. I'd love to be wrong though.

Really? This is THE best game you've played? Is it really better than Space Miner? Jet Car Stunts? Phoenix Wright? Super frickin' QuickHook?

If it's as good as you say, this may be my next purchase.

I downloaded the game at 1 am and ended up playing for five hours straight.

That said, having played through the game once I don't feel that motivated to play through it again, which is good since it's a major time sink...

My games of 2010: Tilt to Live, Phoenix, Carcassonne, Sword & Poker 1/2, Space Miner, Mushihimesama Bug Panic
Honorable mention: Soloman's Boneyard, Game Dev Story, Tunnel Shoot, Warblade, DoDonPachi Revolution, Kalevala
