Place Your Bets: Kairosoft's Pocket Stables Launches For iPhone, iPad
Kairosoft has brought a new game to the App Store. This time, Pocket Stables - the racehorse-themed game in which players must build up a ranch, train horses, and race to win - has launched for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, and is available to download for $3.99. As Kairosoft indeed explains, horse racing is the name of the game in this most recent iOS application. However, far from offering users a simple racing gaming experience, users of the app are instead charged with the task of caring for their horses, training them, and running a ranch at the same time. "Manage your very own ranch while training your racehorses to win big in exciting races!," the developer notes. In this sense, Pocket Stables is not dissimilar to Kairosoft's other iOS applications, which include Dungeon Village, Dream House Days, Cafeteria Nipponica, and The Sushi Spinnery, and all offer simulated environments.

Build training facilities like dirt courses and pools amidst the beautiful natural surroundings of your ranch. Increase your ranch's fame and entice visitors to spend some dough at your ranch's amenities, like ice cream stands and gift shops. Find horses with the right combination of stamina and speed and intensity and train them to race. Keep winning races to earn bigger and better prizes, as well as the ability to compete in even bigger and more exciting races on an international scale. Send once-great racehorses out to stud. Find effective pedigree combinations and breed a new generation of talented colts.The developer adds, "Can you train a Triple Crown winner and bring fame and glory to your ranch?" As of this writing, Pocket Stables has a solid rating of four and a half stars from users in the App Store, and judging from the comments, it seems that fans of the developer's simulation games are pleased with this latest addition. Pocket Stables can be downloaded for $3.99, and is optimized for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
