Pocket Academy Review By An Androtie
Pocket Academy is a game which allows you to make your own personal academy. Androites now have a chance to create a school according to their own liking and also manage the school in the way they want.
Androites who have played Dungeon Village would see the style of this management is similar. You have an isometric view of the school, and you put down different building to strengthen the number of students who will be attending the school. The tutorial you get is a short one, however, has hints and suggestions that youíll be provided throughout the game. While playing the game, you will get messages that will help you in managements, and you will also get messages which are misleading and will put the school in difficulty. The basic aim is simple, keep the school functioning and polish the students to achieve their dream jobs.
The game is very realistic and you have to start slow and find your way to the tap. Androites who like to play fast games will be stuck with undesirable options in the game. Itís a tough simulation game, and you have to sit through the academic term and earn money slowly. The decisions have to be made thoughtfully. You have to go through the pros and cons of things which youíre going to purchase and think about how they can be useful.
While playing the game, youíll see students interacting with each other like real people. Students will be fighting, talking and even going out on dates. Youíll get a message upon every interaction. For example, you get a message upon a dating interaction and whether the courtship is accepted or not. This brings something extra to the game.
Music and sound effects
The game brings a gentle kind of music, which is non-distracting and fun at the same time. I think you canít call the music Ďiconicí. Nevertheless, its gentle and fun, and suits the pace of the game.
The interface isnít a simple one and it will take time before you get used to it. Youíll have options which allow you to see how the school is doing monthly as well as annually. These options need to be located as they are hidden among many other options. The financial and statistical aspects have to be kept in mind while playing the game, and you need to have a bit know-how to be better at the game.
The graphics of Pocket Academy are bright and colorful. Not much attention has been given to the little characters that will be populating on your screen as everything is all pixilated. However, when you look at everything, you will see that the graphics which the game has are sufficient for a game of such a level.
After going through this game, I can say the game is well-suited for Androites who want to create a school of their own liking. If you like fast-paced games, then you may not like it. However, players who appreciate a good challenge should definitely try it out. Itís available on Google Play for $5.06.
