pocket academy

Have you ever dreamed of creating and managing your own imaginary school? No? Well Kairosoft has launched a game that lets you do just that, regardless.

Indeed, Kairosoft, who has in recent memory brought us such releases as Dungeon Village and Cafeteria Nipponica, today made available a "management simulation game" called Pocket Academy. As its name suggests, with the app, you can use your phone to create a school that matches your dreams perfectly. You'll be able to sponsor various school events (e.g. athletic meetings and art shows), create clubs, manage classrooms, and "decide this week's hot couple."

If you've seen any of Kairosoft's previous ventures into mobile gaming, you already know exactly what to expect where graphics are concerned.

The game is available today on Google Play. Sadly, Kairosoft has for whatever reason decided to price it at $4.99, which is unfortunate considering the iPhone version costs just $3.99 and has been available since last June.

Still, if you're interested, all the info you need is right here:

    As much as I loved Dungeon story, these are all so similar I can't convince myself to buy this one at $5 :/

      Yeah, that's the last straw for me. It doesn't seem that long ago when i purchased cafetaria nipponia =/

      And now i have to spend another 5 bucks for the same game with different theme. I will hold out, but i'm a sucker for their games. Damn.

    Am I the only one really tired of this series of games? I am worn out and bored of their games, now.  They keep taking the same game engine and change the story element.  I wish they'd slow down and work on a Game Story sequel, with updated features and modes, and better compatibility with newer devices.

      I plopped down for Game Story, Dungeon Story, GranPre Story, and Pocket League.. Pocket League was the last straw for me. At least with the other three the game mechanics changed enough that it kept it interesting. Pocket League had you doing way too much micro-managing (I know the whole game is micro-managing) but I could handle managing a game system or two, or a couple heroes, or cars and drivers.. but to micro-manage 10 plus players at a time for a Soccer (football) team..  too much.

      I originally got Game Story on the $0.10 Google deals.. since then, given the lack of innovation $5 is a bit much for these games at this point.

      So to sum it up - @Daniel, I agree.. I'd love to see real squeals, especially if you can pull in your saves.

      I am tired of even hearing about them, but people seem to love them, so we give people what they want. One day we'll stop.

    It's not about "buy all their games"..  Developers just want new customers to have a wide range of different settings to choose from.
