Let us tell you about this game, fair reader

Bookstore Dream, to be clear, has about as much book-selling realism as the Call of Duty series has to real warfare. Ultimately though, it is just a game, and this one draws much of its inspiration from a series of smartphone resource management games...

wtf? I sure hope this isn't another "Order Up!" debacle.... That game was dreadfully repetitive and dull.

At that price it's certainly worth a look. And who knows, it could be brilliant.

Man, this game just jumped to the top of my "average playing time" on the 3DS.

Played it for 4 hours straight... It's like crack. Circle nailed Kairosoft style.

Just bought this and it's exactly like Kairosoft's GameDev Story and other 'Story' games in structure.

Visually both also look similar. Surprisingly addictive. Hearing the cash register ring or having all your stock sold out is a great experience.

Inventory management is the name of the game here. You have staff but they are just units you hire, can't be trained. You need to buy shelves and racks to house your books and magazines, but placement does not affect traffic.

But if your store is reasonably popular enough, you will sell out daily, and restocking day to day won't be enough. You can buy more stock but it takes more days. In fact, 3-4 day shipments gives you the most stock, but you also run the risk of not having anything to sell for 3-4 days.

Great game and great price.
