******* WHAT THE WORLD IS SAYING *******
“Karnival is one of the best looking and deep games I’ve seen on the iPhone. It is an absolute must have for all fans of tycoon games…This game has probably the most stylish interface I’ve seen on the platform. The artwork is amazing and graphics look stunning in either day or night.” – TouchMyApps “Grab It” Award

"Karnival is a game that is a lot of fun with a surprising amount of depth. The art style and music give the game an atmosphere that's exactly what you would expect of a freaky carnival." - Touch Arcade

“The brilliance of Karnival lies in its dark inspiration…it's hard not to admire Karnival for making a bold effort to imbue a typical strategy and management game - usually the most sterile of genres - with such a tapestry of gritty ambience and slick style.” – Spanner Spencer, Bronze Award, PocketGamer


*NOTE: iPhone Classic users - please reboot if you have trouble running Karnival*
