|Fashion Story Mobile Game|
This is one of the mobile games I downloaded from the Android Market since I got my phone last year (year after I lost and old one haha). Since then, I got really hooked.
It's similar to typical girl games wherein you have to finish certain tasks and achieve goals and do lotsa dressing up, shopping, and loads more. For me, I enjoyed playing this game because it makes me build my own shopping mall / boutique or whatever you wanna call it. They have really cute designs and colors, matching every girl's dream boutique, I believe. I don't have my own shop but at least in a game, I get to fulfill it. LOL. My personal experience with this game is not-too-exciting for a game review, I believe but I still want to share with you my shop and maybe inspire you all to download it and play with me! Yay! Check after the cut ...

The game will require you to choose a shop name and a username. I chose a pretty basic name for me for all my games (so it can get associated with my blog and other platforms) - chenmeicai.
You can dress yourself up and style the way you want - from make up, to hair, to clothing, shoes, etc. Not everything comes for free though so you have to earn your points through money and diamonds or "gems" and that means you gotta play the game first before you get your perks. (^_^) What's good about it too is the fact that the items available (for your own get up and the stuff to sell on shop) are the ones in-style right now! Imagine how fashion-forward these folks are! From animal print shoes; to bustier top / corset; to Spring 2012 Lookbook ... name it, you have it! It's amazing! How I wish I have those clothes in real life! LOL.
Here's my look:

At first, I was frustrated because my shop doesn't look nice at all and the clothes take like "forever" to finish heheeh. Talk about being impatient now. LOL. But patience is a virtue and I got more stars and experience. Later on, I can get to purchase more stuff for my shop. Also, there are more clothes available for me to sell. The hard work paid off! Yey!
This is how my shop looks like now:
|My shop - chenmeicai - Fashion Story|
You can see three (3) icons at the bottom right - Catalog, Closet, and Design. In Catalog, this is where we choose which products to sell on shop like clothing, shoes, bags, jewelries, and other accessories. In Closet, this is where we design our own looks like my doll above. In Design, this is where we select the furnishing of our shop like the tables, racks, fitting rooms, flooring, walls, etcetera. You are really in control of how you want your shop to look like! And that makes it more fun, for me. I get to exercise my mind's fashion prowess! LOLZ. Or better yet, creative thinking! But honestly, I just get to try out the available items hehehe - so my shop looks like a hodge podge of stuff - where's creative in that? Bwahahaha!
The icons on top determine your progress in the game. You get the coins which tells you how much you earned, and this is where you get your money as well to spend in the game to buy & sell. There are certain milestones that let you earn gems which helps you purchase better items. Of course, you can buy them online too (but I don't want to spend real money just for gems so I just earn them along the way hehehe). By experience and likes that you get, you earn stars in the game. And lastly, you earn hearts if you keep your customers satisfied. It's a mixture of all these that I played all along for about a year now haha!

Of course, this is a social game so you also need to add neighbors - real people playing the game and not just bots. I have a few fashion-frenzy buddies at work who play this game too, like Erelyn and we play it together haha. Everyday, you can give gift items that your friends can sell on their shops too; and like (up to 6 items on sale for friends) stuff that your friends sell. You earn stars by doing that. Do this more and you'll be an expert! Woot! Go visit them and this increases your hearts too (as you become another customer to visit that shop).
If you are more interactive, you can also participate in the games and contests offered by the developers like - create your own clothing, take a pic and share - the best shops win something; and a lot more. It's pretty exciting! You get to win gems and coins and maybe a lot more I dunno yet hehe ... I ain't that active so I don't have the time to join 'em though I think it's great to have such contests.
This game is free on the Android Market / Google Play. You can just download it. It's also available in the Apple Store or IOS or ... iphone / ipad - whatever that is (hahaha I am not familiar!) You can play it while connected to wifi or 3G / 4G or whatever your network provider gives yah. Bottomline, you gotta be online when you play it. I ain't always online soooo ... my progress in the game is really slow haha!
CHAI'S VERDICT: ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆ (4 Stars!!!)
Other than the fact that sometimes, there are connection problems and maintenance; this game is pretty-solid and your game experience is at its best! I really enjoy playing this game. (^_^) I'm sure any fashion enthusiasts out there - who are also gamers - would love this game.
There are a number of suggestions around already, that I also support. Like lesser time to complete some clothes to be offered for selling; more chances to get diamonds / gems; etc. I know the developers are considering this too and I'm looking forward to their improvement.
Go download it now and add me: chenmeicai (^_^)
