Adequate Strategy Game I think its quite easy/quick to complete for a strategy game as you only have 6 bosses to defeat. The higher the level the more time consuming it is. You are basically trying to create sales and you are trying out 'chance cards' to improve your performance. Its a lot like the "My Life Story" reward cards in idea and the game is made by the same company! The strategy is balancing these on top of arranging the different characters and their abilities, you can train them up to be better at something and assign them anything from research, sales, advertising to motivating other members, which is important, because they all stop working if they arent happy! It becomes a busy game like some of the typical time management ones, as you are multi-tasking various jobs and also trying to make the most of the extra chance features you have. As you hit the sales target you defeat a boss and the sales amount gets higher, but you can research and buy in different products so your income is rising and obviously making this achievable. If you think you are waiting a long time for someone to do a job in the first level or two, dont worry... it wont seem like very long in later levels. Actually, it will go very fast and there are bonuses to make them go faster! The graphics are very plain, the storyline is small, but that in my opinion seems to be a trend for this specific field of gaming. I'd recommend it to any strategy game lover, its the sort of game you could play several times and complete it in different ways. The music is, again, typical, I like it, but like anything... turn it off if its annoying? It took me about ten minutes to get into it, the tutorial is quite clear, but it can take a few minutes to work out your personal strategy. So: Boosting with chances, studying really hard, careful task designation - etc. November 5, 2013
Simple Fun Not exactly a challenging game but I actually had a good time playing it. You begin as a lowly boss in a small warehouse. You can hire two employees and your goal is to take the job of the boss over you. It appears that there are 6 bosses you need to outsell one for each new level. As you move up you get a bigger office with more desks to hire additional employees. There are multiple tasks your employees can do from find products to sell to motivate other employees. Each employee has certain strengths like sells or advertising. You can also have your employees study to increase certain skills but as you do their monthly salary will also increase. When you assign a task to an employee it takes a period of time to finish which is indicated by a bar over their head. If your employees are happy, which is indicated by a happy green face above their heads, their tasks are completed faster. You get use to the momentum of the game pretty quickly as you assign one employee to advertise and another to sell and so on. The only thing that concerned me is that I finished 3 bosses and was well on my way through the fourth boss within the demo time. The level of challenge does increase with each boss I just wonder how long the game is or if it can be beat in two hours or less. Other than that it was a fun game and I enjoyed the simple fun of it. There was also a good level of actual business sense that goes into the game play which I like. The demo is certainly worth trying. November 5, 2013
A silly little game that gets challenging I played the demo version and was shocked when the one hour was over, meaning time rushed by. At first glance, there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of substance to this game, but looks can be deceiving. As you advance through the game, and as more employees become available, things start to get tricky. Certainly you can always work slowly, allowing your employees to sit at their desks and do nothing, but if you want to make money fast (or train your employees# you want to constantly keep them busy, which is where things can get tricky. And dictating what each employee should do at any given time #whether to sell products, advertise products, develop new skills, or research new products or bonuses# is where things can get interesting. I've restarted the game once in order to change "tactics" on what I would have each employee do #have one concentrate on selling, another on motivating, another on advertising, etc., or when to train them or do research, etc.#. The few negative aspects #in my eyes# are the lack of a non-tutorial mode #when restarting the game it would be nice to skip over the tutorial parts of the opening levels#. Also, the boss #you# sits at his/her desk and does nothing. It would have been nice for the hero character to grow in some manner #like the employees can learn more and more# as opposed to just having him/her being there as nothing more than a figurehead. In some respects, this game reminds me a bit of a Kairosoft game, similar in nature to Game Dev. Story, where you improve employee skills and make your company bigger and bigger and bigger. So any fans of Game Dev. Story may also like this game. Overall, it's not the best game I've ever played, and I can picture a "meatier" version of the game #having even more options, especially for the "hero/boss" character#, but it's generally enjoyable and offers some challenges and alternate tactics, which increases the replay value.

Far too short I really liked the game but it was way too short. Not near enough game time for the value. Otherwise it was fun, though it could have been a tad more challenging. November 5, 2013
Something a little different Stayed engaged though entire trial period. Think it has potential November 9, 2013
Im the boss game was fun, will do again so November 4, 2013
Awful bosses but great employees I like the variety of tasks that can be assigned to each employee in order to increase sales. You can also let them study to improve their skills so I made each employee an expert in a different skill. I also liked how the office got more sophisticated after each promotion. Each level had a larger sales target, more products and employees to add which made it challenging. However, the game could have included some more challenges like employees on sick leave or product out of stock to increase the challenges. In the last boss section, glitches came up in the game. Sometimes the employees would stay indefinitely on a task or a product would not show up for certain employees. As a result you should restart the game and avoid using the employees or products that had the glitches. Regardless of these bugs I still won and it felt great. I hope they bring out a sequel.

Nothing special, but it teaches one things or two about work... The game itself is nothing special. Average level graphics, mild storyline, average level of challenge. But I appreciated the game dynamic that reproduces a model very simplified, yet rather faithful, of how a company can be run. In the end, the best strategy is to spend a large part of your gain to hire the best employees, train them and develop their skills, and invest in R&D. This is exactly what you should do in the real world :-) December 21, 2013
Really Enjoyed it I really enjoyed this game. It's very easy to pick up and play.. My only 2 complaints are 1) Way too short and 2) No replay value December 9, 2013
Way too Short As many of people have stated before, this game was way too short! The goal of the game is to defeat the 6 'Dreaded Bosses', which is not a challenge at all. There's no time limit or bonus so eventually you will beat each of the 'Dreaded Bosses'. The gameplay does get repetitive and boring; with some down time in between while waiting for your workers to finish their current assign tasks. If you want a change of pace from the fast-paced time management games, this will be a nice filler for casual playtime. There are some great ideas that developers could have expanded on, which I hope they do if they decide to make another one. Overall the game is only worth getting if it's a Daily Deal for $2.99, otherwise the short play time is not worth anything more. December 5, 2013
