    Mega Mall Story is a brilliant tycoon game that is more fun (and economical) than spending a day at the mall.

    All of its pieces fit snug and everything you do contributes to a whole package. It's also one of its most wide-reaching games, combining social and sim aspects from all over the place.

    Mega Mall Story's subject and style seem particularly suited to younger female casual gamers; after all, malls are considered the domain of teenage girls. But the game never feels like it's deliberately aiming for a female audience, which is to its credit. If a charming, happy, absorbing game about a mall appeals to you, Mega Mall Story is worth your time.

    Despite its faults, Mega Mall Story is an excellent sim game that will have fans of the genre glued to their iPhones for hours.

    With its familiar interface, simple mechanics and hummable ditty, resistance to its effortless charm is completely futile. At this stage, you might as well buy shares in Kairosoft.

    On the gameplay side I think they trimmed out a lot of the under the hood yin and yang nonsense.

    A fun simulation game with cool graphics, and a enjoyable vibe. Being on the easy and short side, and lacking online leaderboards hurt it quite a lot. Still it is worth getting if you have enjoyed the other titles from Kairosoft.

This is my first game by Kairosoft and I've heard that they are known for some fairly difficult games in this genre. However this is probably one of the more easier games I've played in awhile. It's a bit to easy to get money and a bit too hard to get different stores. However it's really entertaining while it lasts and can be quite fun for awhile. However Game Dev Story was definitely a better game and I would recommend playing that one first and then play this one. Collapse
