I have a very mixed experience with games on the iPhone. I think I’ve downloaded about ten of the silly things and, until recently, only two held my attention for any length of Civilization Revolution and GodVille. While the latter is more of a spectator affair you check along with your news feeds, Civilization Revolution is the only iPhone game I can confidently say I’ve lost hours to. That’s because is fucking Civilization and, even then, it was mostly on long rides in a car or train where I didn’t have my DS. With the arrival of the quirky Game Dev Story, however, I can now in all honestly say I am truly addicted to an iPhone game.
If you’re currently looking at your screen with a WTF expression, wait until you download it and find yourself playing it at 2 in the morning.
