If you are a fan of casual games with micromanaging gameplay, you may be waiting for G5 Entertainment to release Supermarket Mania 2. It’s the sequel to the very popular iDevice supermarket-managing game. We’ve got great news for you fans because the release date for this second title has been set by G5 Entertainment, and it’s May 12.

Looking at G5′s Web site, it appears that separate iPhone and iPad releases are planned, rather than a universal app. There is a release countdown for both versions, along with a little bit of info on what to expect. The iPad version also has “HD” in the title.

The gameplay consists of opening a store and managing it while progressing through various levels. If you ever wanted to know what it feels like to manage a business like a supermarket, you’ll appreciate the hard work involved after playing this game.

The Web pages for Supermarket Mania 2 HD and Supermarket Mania 2 both offer a list of features to expect from the final release:
