Gaming App Of The Day: Run Your Very Own RPG Village

A lot of role-playing games let you visit villages. Not a lot let you run them. Dungeon Village, a new simulation game for mobile devices, does just that. It turns you into the mayor, zoning planner, and landlord of your very own medieval fantasy town.

Your job: to make money and keep your people satisfied. In this case, your people are adventurers: little sprites with class archetypes like Archer and Merchant who run around buying things and killing the monsters outside your gates.

You won't get to control these adventurers, but you will have to make them happy. To do so, you can build shops, homes, and various decorations. You can send them out on quests. You can give them equipment and other gifts. And you can try not to let them die.

If you've played one of Kairosoft's other games, like Game Dev Story or Hot Springs Story, you probably know what you're getting here: adorable simulated sprites, broken English, and fiendishly addictive money-mongering gameplay.

In other words, it's a game well worth your time.

Warning: Although the iTunes link says it's compatible with iPad, the version I bought and downloaded would only work on iPhone and iPod Touch.

    It's been out on Android for ages. Very fun and addictive game but once I clocked it, I had no desire to go back (unlike a lot of other Kairosoft games where you have to play through multiple times to get the best ending). Fun while it lasts though.

    Same, I did everything on my first playthrough.

    I'm pretty sure I got this 2 months ago when it was GAOTD then....

    All in all, game dev story still the best and stole my heart long tine ago
