Predecessor to Pocket Academy

The Japanese version had two games, this one, which is a prequel, and Pocket Academy, which is the sequel. I had Pocket Academy before and when I downloaded this I neglected to read the description and didn’t realize a lot of the features were taken out.
This is a good game but it pales in comparison to the original Pocket Academy. If you’re wondering, here’s a full list of the missing features in this game, that I could notice off the bat:
1. Student relationships don’t exist.
2. No clubs.
3. Cannot change uniforms during play through.
4. Strangely, most of the characters in this have brown hair. In the original, they had blonde hair and mainly blue eyes.
5. Less structures. In the first town at least, I feel as if there aren’t a lot of facilities. I’m only at year 6 and I’ve gone through all of them already, and I have at least one of everything.

This is a good game if you’re thinking about downloading Pocket Academy but want to try it out first. This is a full game and not at all a demo, however it’s just missing a few key components that the second covers much better. Good game for beginner Kairosoft fans! It’s free, so how can I complain?

This app is good but every time I have a classroom place one or two students can’t get in because it isn’t connected to the main gate. Doesn’t make sense especially when we can add more then one gate for them to get in the school. When I click on the classroom it doesn’t tell me it’s not connected to the gate and is fine. So why is only some students and teachers affected by this. Overall good game though.

Love Kairosoft

I have every kairosoft game that is in English. I have been playing their games for years. I was so excited for this as I have seen it in Japanese for awhile. But I’m a little disappointed. I thought it was going to be a second version to pocket academy. But it seems to be a prequel instead. The combos from the original aren’t always the same. There seem to be less buildings, combos, and features. There are no clubs? No relationships? I’m only on year 7 of the first map. So maybe it’s just not in this map as all the maps are normally different.... but still.

I love the simplicity of these games with secret intensity the further you get into them. They are highly addictive. My favorites are still Edo Town, Game Dev & Dream House.
