  • Why the hate? Aug 26, 2014

    By Other Silhouette
    The reason this app has three stars is because a bunch of people misinterpreted this game as a kind of simulation game where you build your own business; sorry, but its your fault. Nowhere in the description does it say anything about simulation. It says that you can rise up and become rich, but the fact that they mentioned "twitchy gameplay" before that should have triggered something in your brain that this is obviously not what you wanted. Anyway, in my opinion, The Firm is great. Its an extremely fast-paced game about buying or not buying stocks. When you lose, you can buy power ups to help you in the next try. The whole thing is very fun, and while a single gameplay may not last long, you always have next time to look forward to. At its current price of a dollar (and at its future price of two) I highly recommend it as it is very fun and replayable.

  • One of my favorite games to play! Jun 12, 2015

    By CinnamonTwirl
    I was pleasantly surprised when I bought this game as I didn't expect it's atmosphere to be anything special. The graphics and music fit very well into the game and I wasn't expecting the incredible amount of detail put into it. I love the way the menu was designed and the little 'swip' of the pages when you turn them. However I wish it would save your progress mid game as sometimes I need to answer the door or phone while playing and end up losing the progress I have made. Other than that, the game is flawless and it has quickly become the only game I play. I can't wait to see what other games Sunnyside will produce!

  • Too many bad reviews! It's a good game! Aug 25, 2014

    By Devi Wolf
    Goes from near impossible to hard to somewhat hard as you get better at it but highly gratifying once you're on a roll. Okay too many people don't like the stress of thinking and reacting quickly and are giving this "challenging!" game meant for causing peoples brains to differentiate at a high rate of speed a bad name. It's something I've seen in IQ tests. It is hard yes but learning to play it and getting good is the point. NO ONE is going to be good at it right off the bat. Give it a chance and keep at it for a little while... It IS a good game and well worth 1$

    This game is amazing. Sunnyside made a game SO SIMPLE, but is extremely hard to do. I recommend you play this game. Unless you're one of those people who rage quit, then proceed carefully.

    The people who write negative reviews of this app are forgetting one thing: this is a mobile device. Considering that this is a $1 app on a mobile device, here's why this game is great: -Simplistic gameplay that requires development of the ability to quickly focus on multiple things at once -Very easy to control; there are two options (swipes): buy or short, and game modifiers (pills, phone call, stock tip, etc.) -Beautiful graphics (reminiscent of classics) and a fairly intoxicating score (mostly from the title screen) Here's why people are feel misled: -This game could have been an awesome trading simulation if it were slightly more complex, however, to even be a realistic simulation, you'd eliminate a significant number of buyers, who simply don't care or don't understand what they'd be looking at -Instead, what we've received is simply an addictive time waster, much like flappy bird, except that this app probably took one or two hundred hours to produce My verdict: -If you've got a spare buck, it's definitely worth paying for; if you're living paycheck to paycheck, (first, why do you have an iphone, get rid of your data plan) then it's a pass

    Few years ago, this was amazing game. But something wrong after patch. I see the black screen instead of fall (on game over). And glitch with special stocks which doesn't disappear. Please, rollback the patch until you fix this...
  • If Papers Please we're on iOS but not as fun Aug 24, 2014

    By C. Fidalgo
    The Firm brings the simulated stress of actually working to your device at an unreasonable cost. Whereas other life simulations like Papers Please manage to tow the line of stressful fun with lengthier play sessions, The Firm, as per its platform, has to distill the experience into a much shorter period of time. The faster play sessions end up resulting in something painful and stressful on the brain rather than something purely engaging and fun--you're really doing work during The Firm, and it's not that fun. Ultimately, the mental pain is what prevents The Firm from being something more. The game only raises the stress as you're promoted, rather than lessening your mental burden (which would be more akin to reality as a social critique and probably more fun). The Firm would do better if they cut the stack build up time in half and gave you more power as the stakes are raise, since the money making part is what's fun. The last issue is the price. This is not a 1.99 purchase, a .99 cent purchase, or a paid purchase at all--from a quality perspective in terms of art, the price is justified, but the amount of content is comparable to Sky Burger. Players and the company would do better to convert the game to a F2P game with purchasable power ups. If you want something mentally challenging, as fun as real work, and to pay for it, The Firm is a game for you.

  • Read reviews and description completely before buying Sep 18, 2014

    By Zombie Bat
    I bought the game and thought it was something completely different than it was. I just now after I bought the game read the reviews were a lot of people are rating it high and complying about all the people like me who thought it was a stock som game. They say things like it didn't ever say it was a sim game or you should have done some research on it etc. but what I have to say to them is did it ever say that all you do is swipe left or right or did it show gameplay in the pictures and by the description how can you tell that it's not a sim game? 😠it doesn't make it obvious that it's that type of game where you repeat something over and over. I'm not usually he type of person that types bad reviews or complains but they are making clear statements and your saying that they're dumb and wrong for thinking that. 😡

Installed this game again and it played normally until I got fired in game, It stayed on a black screen and wouldnt do anything, I pressed back on my phone and it took me back to the Fired screen, touched again to exit but it goes and stays in black screen, also tried playing the ad to continue and it Did but the fired paper remained on screen blocking my view. please fix and I would remove 1 star rating

    A great game. Each "round" can be as short as a minute or as long as an hour.

  • SOO MUCH POTENTIAL! Aug 23, 2014

    By That guy :^#-|--<
    Like every one els, I thought this game was gunna be a stock sim type thing. I don&#39;t know if you have herd about it, but I thought this game was gunna be a steam game calls &#34;Papers Please&#34; Unfortunately it&#39;s not. If you want a decent arcade game with some nice looks, THEN THIS IS THE GAME FOR YOU, but if you are like me and you want a puzzle sim type game, this isn&#39;t the game for you. When you actually get past the image of the game you wanted, this is a pretty fun and satisfying game, but this games biggest problem is you can&#39;t get past that image. If you got this game looking for something it&#39;s not, i fell you, but at lest try to accept it for what it is. And keep you&#39;re hopes up people, that game that we want may come out some day.

  • This game is job-related, mobs inc, and understanding of how a real job feels like. Apr 11, 2016

    By Newvan2
    When this game showed up at the App Store, I was wondering of if this game is good or not, but after a long time of playing the game, I realize that this 5-star best of my book, and I wondering if the developers can make it even more better, and add a map option for taking over different companies to become the biggest company that the world has ever known.

  • There's a reason for negative reviews Dec 12, 2014

    By Who knows who...
    Most negative reviews such as mine come from people who expected a little more depth from the game. Sure the description does not promise any strategy. But if u really want to put out a game based on fast reflex, name it something like dimple run or crappy bird. When u name it as the firm and put pictures of stock prices, u attract a certain kind of audience who expect some substance and completely loose audience who will indeed enjoy this kind of game. Swipe left and right at stock prices?!? Common. I would rather swipe left and right at ice creams or running chickens or racing cars or something fun like that...

    Paid game gone freemium - again Feels like it shouldn't be legal as it's so frustrating. The game never used to be free and never used to be called free edition. This is disrespectful and shouldn't be condoned.
