I like NimbleBit. I appreciate that the developer makes free-to-play iOS and Android games that you can (normally) actually enjoy for free. Which is why I was excited about Tiny Tower Vegas. Disco Zoo had me obsessed, I played Star Wars: Tiny Death Star for weeks, even though I’ve never seen a movie or played more »

Especially since Yen Press Seven Seas more »
