Princess Alethia, 5 stars:
Put together movies and name them whatever you want! This is a great game to play if you only have a few minutes to play before you need to go to sleep, providing you have the incredible willpower to stop playing after only a few movies and actually go to sleep. It is nice each movie is timed so you have an intense few minutes and afterwards a breather between movies that also works as a signal to stop. Very fun!
I love playing my own Movie Studio after a long day of shooting or editing. I only wish this game was more like the PC game The Movies and not so much about dragging and dropping to a timer. This could be a fun movie RPG if there weren't timers and it was more turn-based production decisions. But it's the closest thing we've got. And it does look pretty rad.
