Oh God...a Shopping Mall Simulator...On the iPhone...

When I was at university, I was designing a game with a friend. With The Sims making buckets of money and Theme Park being a big inspiration, we set out to make a game based on...running a shopping mall.

It didn't get very far. But that's OK! We're both going to be playing it this weekend anyway. Best part? Somebody else did all the hard work for us!

Mega Mall Story is the latest game from Japanese mobile developers Kairosoft, who most of you will know from their amazing Game Dev Story.

As with all their other games, it uses the same interface and the same basic management premise. Only you're running a giant shopping mall! It's also...ah, look, I'm going to have to finish this some other time. I'm too busy deciding where to stick the toilets.
