So much fun!!!!

I love this this game! Fun graphics, almost no ads! Completely appropriate for all ages! This game is so fudging cute! This is my favorite game I have! I would like it if you had more options of the students that attend the school though, and more uniforms and maybe some more hair styles. I would also like if you could try and set up blind dates for the characters! I love this game, definitely worth downloading! There is one thing though, every time someonr gets asked out they get rejected. Only one person has said yes!

Ok game!

I played this game around 5 years ago and started playing again. It’s refreshing but the mechanics are confusing and it seems like things happen randomly.

I’ve only had one couple this play through and it seems like the factors to have a couple make little to no sense. My students have decent popularity, but don’t want to date. The Cupid item is pretty much useless and a waste of points. I don’t think couples boost or improve your school much anyways, so I feel like the couple mechanics are pointless.

I wish there was a way to rotate facilities or even an option to move them because you have to plan way ahead of time. I also wish there was a way to get smarter transfer students and 1st year students, because I have to grind 1st semester (which should be named “trimester”, as there are 3 terms. Semester is 2 terms.) special classes so my scores and rank don’t tank.

There isn’t a lot of class rooms and the Max, regardless of map size is three, which is a bummer.

Since this game is originally from Japan, there are translation errors to the max. I’m not to bothered by it, but the text flow breaks up words which makes it harder to read. A lot of words are awkwardly abbreviated too.

It’s a good game, I wish this was updated but I highly doubt it will be. Some mechanics are wonky which you will have to figure out on your own. I used the Kairosoft wiki to help, but other than that you are 100% blind in the dark with little to no guidence.

Forever one of my favorites

This game was one of my first Kairosoft games ever. It is absolutely so much fun and a great time killer if you’re ever bored. There is so much to do and once you get a hang of the strategy it becomes a piece of cake. Each map is super unique, with their own challenges and layouts to overcome.

One thing I do hope that happens is an updated sequel. Mega Mall’s sequel looks super promising and I’m excited to play it— this game is a tad old and it would be very refreshing to see a modern version of this game. Please not F2P though… those games are typically not my favorite. More character options, make the personality traits actually matter, more class events, etc. would really give this game more depth and personalization.

I grew up playing this and Kairosoft has always been a part of my video game history. Please continue to put out great titles!! <3
