Yup, similar space I would say. Ofcourse Game Dev has been around for much longer - but that said, this is a nifty little game too, worth a try for £0

Please do share your feedback once you had a go. Ta!
It's surprisingly addictive. I think i finished it in a couple weeks of on off play. A bit of waiting but exciting waiting, as the 'waiting' can be influenced. Defo a toilet game.
Installing, thanks!
Cold: a game that wants to have access to allmost all data on you phone (including contacts and other privacy data); not funny... I will not install.

The only thing I got asked for was photos/media/files - which I suppose is understandable because you might want to use your saved pictures/save stuff from the game - but beyond that I didn't get asked for anything - what am I missing?

Yup - I saw that - but those aren't the permissions the app gets by default - those are the ones it can get/ask for - remember app permission handling has changed since Android 6.0. Below is the permissions I see for the app when I check it on my phone :

Now thats much better looking than the permissions something like say Mosalingua for instance has :

Now that I would say is slightly intrusive - won't you say?

I know, checked and its still the same price there That said though the hatred folks have here for Apple does make most wary to post deals for the App Store - just saying !
This game needs some serious graphics it looks dire currently

Yes the graphics can do with some work - but outside of that concept wise its a fab game.
Freebie done.
Sounded interesting when available.
Not free in Ireland unfortunately.
Not free anymore in England. No idea if it would still be free elsewhere.
Quite clear that the original poster of this works for the company who produces this game.

I have tried it in the past and it is nowhere near the level of Game Dev.

Buty i thought self promotion on this site was not allowed?
