Have you always dreamed of owning your own Japanese inn? If so, I've got the game for you! It's called Hot Springs Story, and it's the latest game from Kairosoft Co, the same group that brought us Game Dev Story.

The object of the game is simple: make your guests happy and work your way to the top. You have total control over the environment in this management simulator-style game - everything from building new guestrooms and restaurants to adding intricate details like azalea bushes and pine trees to the gardens is in your power. Invest in the local community, build arcades and baths - whatever it takes to get you into the number one spot.

It will set you back $5.41, but if you're into management sims, this is a must-have. Grab it from the Android Market and build the day away.

    Tested it a few minutes, not as cool as Game Dev Story in my opinion

      Probably doesn't appeal to the inner geek as much, but Market comments have been praising it quite highly. I say it appeals to a slightly different demographics.

    How's the resolution on it? One of the things I was disappointed about Game Dev Story was it was built with a fixed screen size and then a lot of blank white space on my phone.

    I enjoyed Game Dev Story for a while and it was certainly addictive for a few days but after winning the main award, it got boring and the whole development process got tedious as well. I hope this one isn't plagued by that same problem. Will give it a try soon hopefully.
