Apartment living isn’t always the easiest thing. Between bills, managing limited physical space, and juggling a social life, ambition, and sanity, one’s existence in a hundreds-square-foot box is tough enough to maintain alone. Now imagine looking after 10, 20, or even 50 residents, all with their own faults and goals – not to mention keeping up with the maintenance and improvement of the building they live in. This is the task Dream House Days asks of you in assuming the role of apartment manager.
In the past, Kairosoft has brought us cartoonish simulations of what it's like to be a video game creator (Game Dev Story) or shopping mall proprietor (Mega Mall Story), among many others, but its latest iOS affair has you catch and train various elemental critters and then use them to explore your surroundings. While all this may sound a lot like a Pokémon game, you’ll soon realize that Beastie Bay is a civilization management game first and a monster-catching game second.
The awesome developers over at Kairosoft have revealed that their next iOS release will be a port of their Android game, Grand Prix Story. It's a fairly well regarded game, but the release will come with a catch.
As we reported last week, Kairosoft, the makers of some of the most deviously addictive simulation games on iOS, have released their latest epic. It's called Mega Mall Story and we can't wait to get our hands on it.
The makers of the insanely addictive Game Dev Story and the equally solid Hot Springs Story are back with another release. This time the theme will revolve around creating an enormous mall for consumers to roam.
Plenty of games come and go that quench the desire to be a deep space pilot who blows up aliens by the dozens. However, very few have ever tried to simulate the day-to-day operations of the ship. So if you're tired of merely blowing up aliens, and want to experience some Picard-esque politics and intrigue you need to check out Star Command.
Kairosoft is a bit of a favorite around here at Mac|Life. Their first amazing cult-hit iOS game, Game Dev Story has earned its right as a permanent fixture on several of our iPhones. Kairosoft has now officially announced the Japanese release of Pocket School Story 2, though it's still unclear as to whether the game will be released in North America.
Here at Mac|Life we're nerds for a lot of things, but rarely before have all of our nerditudes been so masterfully exploited simultaneously. Today we learned of a game that not only runs on our favorite gaming platform, but is also a mash up of one of our favorite games of 2010 and an awesome sci-fi setting that seems to be a spoof of (or direct homage to) Star Trek.
Game Dev Story was one of our favorite little-known titles from all of last year. It's wonderful blend of quirky humor and addictive gameplay grabbed us and didn't let go for days. Now, the game's developer, Kairosoft, has released a follow up to Game Dev Story titled Hot Springs Story.
One of our personal favorite games from all of 2010 has gone on sale and is now available for less than a candy bar. We listed Game Dev Story in our collection of the Top 10 Games for Avoiding Christmas Boredom, and the anti-boredom quotient has quadrupled now that the game has dropped it's price from $4 to $1.
