great game

Yeah very good game, very very hard to put down. I got it for this price a while ago and actually couldnt stop playing lol

Great game and price heat added

WARNING WARNING SUPER ADDICTIVE

Banned

Heard a fair bit about this game, I'm intrigued, this seems as good a price as any to get it.

very addictive, thankfully it sort of ends after year 20 so that gave me a reason to stop playing!

heat added - good price, great game

Really really really good game! Such a shame it 'ends' so quicly though.

First game I got into when I got my Desire HD. Brilliant! Tried explaining it to my mate and he said "zzzzz"...

Can't go wrong for 59p, heat added!

Yeah this game is super addictive but a damn fine great price

Such an excellent game, *really* addictive

Anyone ever been able to employ the engineer to make a console?

I have tried literally everything, used every way of advertising a million times and with no success.

It is addictive, but repetitive after 20 years is reached. It is insanely addictive though

Purchased this one last time, lost three days of my life to it.

Excellent game for 59p.

Heard nothing but good things about this game so I'll check it out heat added

you make an engineer by changing peoples job types, level them up to 5 and then change them again. THe final thing you can change them to is Hardware Eng. I just made my own console, sold 7 million units and grabbed 18% market share. Got two games in the hall of fame and just won the runner up GOTY award.

Not been this addicted to a game since Civ

got it good deal heat added

Very addictive game, it's very difficult to put down once you start playing. It's got a certain 80's retro style about it that you used to get from Spectrum and C64 games. Similarly it also has the same lack of depth and repetitiveness that games of that generation had too. The main game itself lasts for 20 years, after that you can carry on playing but any future research gained won't be carried over for when you start a new game. In all honestly you'll see everything the game has to offer in the first 10 years but that doesn't make it any easier to put down.

It's more than worth it's usual £2.39, at 59p I can't think of any reason not to recommend this to anyone who is slightly intrigued by it.

super addictive, but once you reach 20 years, you just stop. No further reason to play. So about 30 hours of gameplay for your 59p!

After around 15 years you'll be winning every award annually except for the "worst game" one. After a while even the most bizarre genre combinations are earning Hall of Fame ratings of 38, 39 and 40 and sell over 50 million units.

great game but always frustrated by no retina display

Is it on sale for android?

Fantastic game! Shame I paid £1.79 only 2 weeks ago

Still worth the money, and an absolutely steal for 59 pence!

Sounds great, thanks for the heads-up!

Stupidly addictive.

such a good game!!!

very addictive game for a good price

How realistic is it?
Do you load up your save to find your companies gone down the pan (and you have to get permission from the liquidators to pick up your stuff)?

Does the game force you to play late nights and weekends before you can save?

Do you try to laod your save, and the game informs you it's been sent to player in india or china?

Try this guide - I've developed a console and have over 3 billion in cash (the game only lasts 20 years officially) You can carry on playing..

There is a 'lite' version for Android so you can try before you buy. This was half price recently but now seems to be at the normal rate. I paid full whack a while ago, it's worth every penny. Great game.

£3 is peanuts really, but these phone games have really changed people's perceptions of how much gaming should cost.

I think Sony and Nintendo are going to have a very hard time convincing anyone to pay £39.99 for handheld games on the new 3DS & PSP2

Absolutely addictive, but i wish there was more to aspire to when you have developed your own console lol. Still an absolutely amazing game and i spent a whole 12 hour work shift on it and completed it when it was last on sale lol.

This is brilliant yet it could destroy your life. Beware!

ffs literally JUST bought this at full price

rockin game though

This **** game. Claimed me for all of christmas day.

Bloody game. If it weren't for this, it'd feel like my breaks at work lasted a lot longer.

Ah, you're making me think of the wannabe-popstar Spectrum game "The Biz" (written by Chris Sievey/Frank Sidebottom).

It's quite grim though, nearly always the game ends up with the player as a heroin addict (the screen slowly turns into gobbledygook to simulate a drug-addled brain).

In fact, thanks to an online emulator, I still play it.
