We are a UK based outfit who mainly develop horse and greyhound racing management games (hard-core sims and very niche). We have been around on the PC for seven or eight years. This is our first iPad release.

Looks interesting and the fact that it comes from a seasoned developer bodes well.

Be sure to check out the additional screens, this looks like it may redefine the term "full-featured".

It is very well put together and comprehensive one small thing though it takes a lot of working things out as the tutorial is not the best but if you persevere it's a brilliant game

I usually love in-depth sim/management games like this, regardless of the subject matter... but $10.99 is a bit too high for me to make an impulse "i hope its good" purchase. :/
