    But what GDS ends up proving about game development is this: making simple, fun and, yes, casual games that can keep rewarding players after that first flush of fun is so much harder than it looks.

Their recent release, Game Dev Story, has light up iOS review sites left and right, and earned high marks from players as well (it's currently the #1 player-rated iphone app). After pouring 25 hours into 2 different game companies, smashing sales records, and hardly sleeping for a week out of obsession, I can easily say this is one of the most addictive games I've ever played.

The addictive nature of producing your own games through your team of trained staff (whilst it seems that your character just loafs around calling the shots) is very rewarding. After choosing a genre (e.g. RPG, Action, Adventure etc.) a Type (e.g. Fantasy, Animal, Romance etc.), and a name for your masterpiece, users must lead their team to creating the next best-seller; constantly trying to pitch themselves for awards, earning capital, and gaining a larger fanbase. This is a must-have for anyone that loves Video Games. If you don't believe me - download Game Dev Story: Lite for free now! Full Review »
