So my work collegue has just bought to my attention to a new game that’s just been released for smart phones running the Google Android OS.
The game is by a Japanese developer called Kairosoft, and is called ‘Grand Prix Story‘.
It seems to be a cute little racing team management game, looking quite similar to the classic Theme Hospital, where you start out with a go-kart in your garage, and have to slowly build up a team, hiring mechanics, designers and engineers, as well as drivers, until you’re running a fully fledged Formula One team.
Appears to only be out on Android so far, but the company’s previous games ‘Game Dev Story’ (where you run a games developer, and have to fire and hire, and release best-selling video games) and ‘Hot Springs Story ‘run a hot sprint resort of some kind’, were also available on iPhone, so hopefully this game will make the journey across too, I’m definately hoping so.
Hell yeah it is! I’ve wasted much of the past week playing it. It’s a little piece of brillaint, although I’m struggling to win the “Formula No. One Championshp”, mainly due to not being able to get a car that works on poor quality roads and/or ice.
Does 4WD ever become availiable as a drivetrain option? I’ve only got FF, FR and MR so far.
