Gameplay Premise
The premise of the gameplay is simple. To be the best game tycoon. This is a simulator game, so some semblance to the facts are expected.

Tutorial
The tutorial is spoken, there is no subtitle, and there is no explanation on what should be done. For example : You are told to borrow $100k from the bank, but you are not told where the bank is and how to even sign the paper. You are told to manage your developer, and you are not told where is your developer office (turns out, the development office is separate from your personal office). In short, the tutorial is not helpful at all.

The UI
The UI is very bad. There is no tooltips at all. If you hover over something, there won't be any explanation. As UI is related to how information is given out to you, this game is also very bad at that. To access your game quality, you have to go to a certain object. To access your sales number, you have to click on some paper on your table. To access your financial report, you have to click on another paper on your table. There is no collated financial reports, no collated engine/game reports. Some reports have to be accessed outside your personal office, which you must travel to other place just to get a piece of report.

The notion of personal office looks like Airline Tycoon Deluxe, which are a great game. In Airline Tycoon, there are tooltips so that we know what we are going to click. To access the incoming message, just click on the paper organizer in your office. To access your plane facilities, click on the plane model. To access the fuel price and setting, click on the fuel painting on the wall. To access your route, click on the globe. To access your financial report, just a click away. This is very different with Game Tycoon 1.5.

Game Tycoon 1.5 fails to present the information needed with a good manner, information is fragmented. For tycoon games failure to present information is very bad, as those information are the key to success in these kind of games.

The Gameplay
The gameplay is horrid.

There are no clear explanation.
What is the differences between Keyboard controller and Joystick? Japanese language and English language? No explanation at all.

The game is too complex.
Not complex in a good manner. To build a game, you have to create an engine. During the creation of engine, you have to enter the features (like Game Dev Tycoon) though it's unclear which features is better than the others. During the creation of engine you are also able to set how many developers are going to develop the engine. Next, you have to print it and it is stored at your inventory. After that, you have to go to the university, and grab some developers.

After that, you have to go to the developers office (beside your office, they have darts targeting your character) and assign programmers to the project. No problem on this part.
After that, you develop the game, same thing, you have the game "cassette" on your inventory. Then, you have to go to design factory to define how much gimmicks you wanted. Then you go to factory to print out your product. Then to licensing to find a publisher. Then to factory again to sell the game.

The process is believable, but presented in such clunky manner that you will be confused in no time. While a good game will present all of those above steps in a UI that have drop-down menus, this game is not. As outlined above, because information is too fragmented. For example : After printing out your product, you go to publisher. The publisher demands your game have a specific rating. If you have printed your game, you can't know the rating anymore, the rating is known only after the game is developed. These kind of thing is very bad, information should be able to be accessed at all times!

No feedback
While the Game Dev Tycoon provides feedback to the player by giving out review scores, this game did not give any. Review scores are important to give us facts how good is our product. But no dice, no feedback, no nothing. In tycoon games it is important to have feedback. For example, if we are told that our sales drop in such areas, we should know the cause. Bad product? Bad pricing? Bad sales? We must have information. This game lacks those, so the players could not make informed decisions to make something.

Bad Game Structure
No menus. Simply horrid. You can't access functions inside the game, you have to go out to main menu to get that. You can't go to settings, you have to go to main menu to access settings. Not to mention that the game will drop to desktop for a few second if you go to main menu. That is simply unacceptable.

Look and Feel
Simply lacking. The game has some quality in drawing, but very lacking in other aspects. The music is bad.

Final Verdict
I got this game from a bundle, so it is not a bad loss to me.
STAY AWAY FROM THIS GAME.
I think this game is the Big Rigs of tycoon genre.

Looks awesome. Sounds awesome. The worst game i ever played however. Even free single-dev indie games were better than this! Lots of glitches, voice keeps talking while paused, also, 3 people talked at once one time, there are no captions, and sometimes i can't hear what the tutorial says, he repeats it OVER AND OVER AGAIN instead of placing some text on the screen, logos suck, there is a character that looks like Gordon Freeman, animations are quite bad, preety much a failed copy of Game Dev Tycoon (Unless this was first, so Game Dev Tycoon is a waaaay better version of this.) I hope it will be removed from Steam soon, because it's NOT worth 10€. I'd rather keep it up and collect more for a Valve game. Or even a PS2 game. Anything, but not this. Well, at least i got it in a giveaway, so i didn't have to spend any money. Also, it's hard to know what is clickable and what is not in that game. I give it a 3/10. Maybe a nice idea, but it was realised terribly.

This game is pretty bad. I would not waste your hard earned cash on this game. I went into buying this game (forgeting to read the reviews) thinking that it would be fun. NOPE, it was the most god awful tutorial that I have ever seen. I had to go to YouTube, and I had to watch over 5 videos to even know what I was doing. After all of that it was SOOOOOOOO boring. I would NOT recommend this game to ANYONE. Plz don't buy this game.

STAY AWAY!!!
This is a game about making other games. The same concept as Game Dev Tycoon. Before I go on I just want to say that you should get that game instead as it does a MUCH better job.

Cons:
- Extremely slow gameplay.
- Quite buggy.
- Tutorial isn't informative enough.
- The game is really hard to learn without a proper tutorial.
- At launch the .exe file wasn't there so the game wouldn't launch (says a little about the game quality as well as Steam's quality checks).
- No proper options-screen (although your computer should be able to run it considering the horrible graphics).
- Not sure about this one, but I'm pretty sure it's just an old game that's been put up on Steam. I think I read that some places.

Now to the pros:
- There are none

So please, don't buy this horrible game. Not even it's on 99% sale. You will regret it!

Game tycoon is not a game i'd want to play again, it doesn't actually work properly and i have seen other games that are a lot better, for example game dev tycoon or mad games tycoon.

3/10
