    I searched the board before I made this topic so I apologize if I missed if this was already announced or not. But in case anyone didn't know, Hot Springs Story is now available in the US Android market and it's on sale for $3.99. I wanted to share this news because Game Dev Story is a fantastic game and I can't wait to dive into Hot Springs Story.

    Ah this is great to hear! Played it on my ipod, a lot more in depth than GDS, but doesn't quite have the charm.

    I wish these guys would make proper use of the touch screen. This is an improvement over Game Dev Story, but it still uses the touchscreen to simulate a D-Pad, rather than utilising it properly. To add insult to injury, it doesn't use my phone's D-Pad (optical tracker thingy).

    Aside from this, it's an interesting game and more indepth than GDS, which got repetitive too fast. There's not enough constructive games for Android (or any other platform for that matter!)

    What are you on about, Quboid? The first thing I did when I started the game was push the button that disables the virtual d-pad, then turned it to landscape mode. Have you actually tried touching the screen? For that matter, Game Dev Story had full touchscreen support as well.

    Great game, definitely recommend it.

    It uses the touchscreen to move a cursor around, like it is a port of a game designed for a D-Pad, where the concept of a cursor makes sense. It is a minor thing, but if the game had been designed for touchscreens from day 1, it would be a bit nicer to operate. If it actually was designed for touchscreens, I'm surprised by their choice of controls.

    I will prefer a simulation of hospital & clinic. Hope the team will come up with that!

    I guess there is a cursor on the screen but it doesn't do anything. The screen reacts like a normal touchscreen to me. The cursor doesn't move from the middle of the screen, I wouldn't have even noticed it except I checked before responding to Quboids post. Fun game though, have no issues with the controls. Loved Game Dev Story as well.
