Kairosoft is a gaming company that has built a name for themselves on quality. Their simulation games have constantly topped many reviewers' "best of" list for Android titles, and personally they've enthralled me for many an hour.

It seems almost peculiar, though, that they've never delved too deeply into in-app payments or other models that are more prevalent on the Android platform. Kairosoft has stuck to their guns and delivered a full game for a set price, forgoing "pay to win" shortcuts in favour of good mechanics and pure fun.

Kairosoft can take 16-bit graphics and a few scripts and turn them into fun over and over again without fail. This time the Japanese mobile game developer has strayed a bit from its typical approach, though, by combining its world builder-style titles with a Pokemon-esque RPG element. Yeah, it's weird.

Kairosoft, makers of the wildly popular Game Dev Story (and a ton of other "Story" games), released Cafeteria Nipponica to the Play Store today, bringing a familiar art style and gameplay format back once again, but this time in a restaurant.

The game poses players as "chef de cuisine" at their very own restaurant, allowing for total control over every detail from tables to TVs to menus, ingredients, salary negotiation, dish development, and much more.

In the ever-expanding world of Kairosoft's Story games, another entry just made its way into the Android Market. This go around it's all about designing your own mall, complete with food court and storefronts. There are several options in place to make your mall the top-dog of them all - you can even add a helipad on top!

Once your facility hits a certain level of popularity, a "fever" will strike the patrons and your mall will be swamped with new business.

pocket league story

Kairosoft has already had you managing a race car team, a Japanese inn, and a game development studio, but their latest game, Pocket League Story, will have you training your own soccer team.

Much like the other Story games, Pocket League Story allows for total control of your team, from picking and training players, to building gyms and stadiums, and even selling merchandise. If you're already a fan of the genre, you'll probably want to pick this up in the Android Market for the usual cost of $5.18.

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.
