Middle Manager of Justice

As the Middle Manager of Justice, train and manage superheroes to thwart crime!


Wow. Just wow. I loved the game. This was my favorite game since forever. The only reason I took off one star is that the game needs an update. It needs more bosses and you should add a way to put more than four heroes in the base and on missions at once. I am fully leveled and maxed out on all my characters. Now I shall sit and wait for a much needed update.Update review: still has not been updated three months after my request and suggestions on an update. I took another star from my review.

    This is one of the best mobile games I’ve ever played. It has a great story, witty writing and solid mechanics. You can play the entire game without being nagged for cash or with ads. This should be the future of mobile gaming, not the plethora of nagware games that try to weasel into your Facebook and Twitter accounts. Seriously spend money in this app and vote for high quality games like this.

    This game gives you plenty of gameplay to keep you busy. I never feel like I have to check up on it unlike so many other good RTS titles on the market (such as the Simpsons: Tapped Out). It’s funny when you take the time to read the text and has a certain persona about it. In-app purchases are not necessary at all. I highly recommend MMoJ!

    Went to open it. Save gone. 3 months into it… (casual player). Thankfully I had Titanium backup. Midnight back up was dead too, I guess it happened around midnight, for no good reason. Thankfully I had an older backup from the 3rd sitting there and when I restored the data… save was back! But this SHOULDNT ever be happening… this needs a built in save backup to the cloud/Google + or something even every two days or once a week… something so players don’t lose all their work. Short n good otherwise.

    Innovative and addictive and entertaining.No in-your-face payment hassle.If this had more play time i would spend mainstream game money on it, easy.There is loads of content but ultimately gameplay dries up after maybe 24 hours of play.If this gets expanded without adding hassle and reliance on paid content then I’d play it probably for life, and I have never said that about a game before.

    As a Middle Manager it is your job to train rookie heroes and buy facilities that will help improve the heroes strength and moral. You also have to face crime whenever they surface. Money gathering is so generous that you don’t feel the need to buy extra credits to get better equipments and the humor in the game is funny too. The only down side is the little waiting time when training your heroes and getting more money are a bit long. If you like time patient games then this one is for you

    It was pretty entertaining and well put together. I did however experience a technical issue with what I assume to be data corruption.Short story: I lost all of my progress/saveLong story: I was playing when my battery died (while plugged in) and the next time I went to play it began downloading game data. Later when I was on WiFi I finished the game data download, booted the game and was presented with start new game ?

    Short wait times makes it continuously playable and i agreewith other reviews in thanking the devs for not slappingyou in the face with ads and in app purchases. I actually bought the plant that produces resources. (Helps a lot)but I felt no requirement to do so. Way to go devs. The game itself is fun kind of a Sims game with a super hero theme. Was never a fan of the Sims games but this game is so addictive. Only request is to add the ability to buy higher level heroes unless I’m close to the cap.

    Erik Hinrichsen July 28, 2014
    This game is really fun. The animation style is great, the dialog is witty, the gameplay is entertaining, and the in-app purchases aren’t a requirement to succeed. I’d give it five stars if it took advantage of Google Play Services to sync save data across devices. There’s just no excuse for not doing that these days.

    Manage your crew of D-List heroes with no real investment of time or effort. Most of your choices from heroes to items all seem viable, and playing smart pretty much negates any need for in-app purchases. If you like sims and office humor, this free time-waster is a no-brainer. Another strong, off-beat game from Double-Fine.

    cupiedoll August 1, 2016
    I initially gave this game 3 stars only because it was so short but coming back to this game a second time around has given me a new perspective. This game is fun with a great art style. There are no adds and despite it being kinda cheesy the dialogue is really fun and engaging. And the game play is like no other app I’ve played. One of the best apps I’ve played. I only wish it were longer

    jerry thompson September 29, 2013
    Update: cool game but its over quick. You can get new heroes but youhave to use the ones you have to beat the bosses.After you beat them all, it’ll take forever to level your new heroes. I don’t know if they’re any changes or updates but it would be cool if we can use two groups of four to fight crime. .. and to have our heroes refresh everything when they get promoted or let us add a skill.

    Jason Cameron November 20, 2013
    I love this game, great fun but max out way too fast and it doesnt really end… beat the final boss and nothing happens, just continue to get random little things to do… would be nice if there was an update to add more stuff to do, more charaters or something

    Anthony Bachmeier September 26, 2013
    Great game.Not only is it fun, but it is truely free to play. No constant spam asking you to buy things, watch their videos, or go to their website.There is no Facebook spamming either.You can play through start to finish no problem.Addicting as ever. I hope more content gets added or a second one comes out!This game is truely a gem.

    Jason K June 15, 2017
    I really enjoyed this game. The art is great and the gameplay is fun.I actually enjoyed the characters more than the management aspects. Heroes and villains are charming and funny. Combat only got repetitive fit me after the end,but your milage may vary.The powers kept it fun.My only complaint is that the game stops progressing at a certain point, but doesn’t let you know that you’ve done everything other than that you unlocked the whole map. I am fit allowing continued play,but I like an acknowledgement that I won.

    It’s fun and funny. I like the graphics and little details of the game. The humour is very good and the gameplay overall is enjoyable. Even though I’ve spent around £3 on the game I’ve learnt that you really don’t need to spend anything to progress through and there’s no ‘pay wall’. Fantastic free game.

    Radaa5 December 16, 2014
    It is fun. There are micro transactions but they do not feel necessary, or at least after a certain point. In the beginning, after the first area, micro transactions are very tempting due to difficulty, but this could also be because I was not fully using training. After the 3rd area it was smooth sailing. The game is fun and worth playing with hours of content.

    Nicholas Seemann January 20, 2014
    I haven’t put a whole lot of time into the game yet, just been playing a few days but it’s pretty fun so far. When I am bored waiting for the bus or between classes I will play for a bit. Nice little management sim..

    Gary Stargazer May 28, 2017
    Pretty fun little management game. Amusing writing and interesting characters. I was going to spend some real money on it but it looks like it’s abandoned by the developer and is just sitting here to funnel in revenue.It’s short and only has a handful of heroes, it’s in a serious need of some new content but since it’s last update was about four years ago… me thinks it’s dead Jim.

    Jordan Serson October 8, 2013
    I’m about to pump some money into this game but I’m hesitant since their is no data sync.I’m sure it’s easier said than done, so maybe in a future version?Gonna suited a few bucks on this since it’s definitely fun even though it resets on uninstall.

    Ricardo June 24, 2015
    There are quite a few bugs… I’m pretty sure this is abandonware, but it’s still fun. If the developer ever decides to come back to this game, I’ll bet that he/she could make this an editor’s choice. Give it a try! It’s a great time waster.

    Kyle Vladetich July 24, 2015
    I’vebeen digging around the Play Store for a game like this and I stumbled across this golden gem! This game is superb! The only flaw (and it’s not even that big of a flaw) is that you don’treally earn that much coin. More coin/reward should be applied as an update. This game won’t let your addictive personality down.

    Leola Terana October 22, 2014
    The in-app l purchases aren’t pushed on you and are actually reasonably priced. The game’s funny and more than likable. I just wish there was more stuff to do after maxing your heroes and defeating Beastfly (it will take you a while to get to that point! C:). Will disappoint people looking for games meant to be played in long sessions with twitchy action.

    Scott Jones October 17, 2013
    Graphics are good, game runs smoothly, and controls are responsive. Funny dialog keeps you engaged while leveling your characters. Game will keep you wanting to play for hours trying to acquire all the characters and maxing them out. My only complaint is that as the story was progressing and I was attacking aliens with my maxed out squad,I acquired three more low leven ones. Then the story quit progressing and becomes repetitiveeven after I maxed their level. Fix this then easily 5 stars.

    Jason Wells October 28, 2013
    Fantastic game. I literally played it all day when I first opened up the app. Being able to just sit back and trust your heroes to defeat the enemies or to assist them using their powers and yours really sets this game apart. Cause let’s face it,as a manager you have to trust that your employees are competent enough to take on their own tasks.

    Moe Nay October 7, 2013
    Waste of time. I had this at a 5 star but once u reach a certain point Ithe game its impossible to beat the bosses. During battle I clearly should have won….the boss was almost dead and all my four guys had full health. …then all of a sudden my guys are dead and the boss wins. Seems like a scam to get u to use real money. Dont! It won’t change things.

    Elizabeth Baidoo June 19, 2015
    I lost all my progress as the game just randomly reset itself when I last loaded it. I can’t be asked to start from scratch, so much potential for my commuting to and from work gone! Uninstalling now. Sigh…

    Naomi Waller December 9, 2016
    Most of the heros are male and there’s no choice of gender for the manager. I know people might think this in unimportant, but it’s really not. I’m a female gamer and gender diversity is important. I like to play female characters and the lack of choice is disappointing.

    James Patterson September 24, 2013
    I really enjoyed this game, but, now, it seems the game has decided I’m done playing. It went from functioning perfectly yesterday to FC on load today.Edit: began working flawlessly again, and lasted for a good 18 hours, at which point it reverted to FC on load. My mind, it’s boggled.

    UnknownOctober 21, 2013
    This is one of the most fun management games I’ve ever played, very entertaining with cute cartoony graphics and hilarious characters (Why so glum, Gloomerang??) Please come out with a sequel, stat, or I’ll join the dark side!

    Blazej K November 17, 2013
    At first I thought the game was really great. Then I progressed and realized advanced training the characters takes crazy long times. Ridiculously long. I don’t want to play a game in which I set up training for my heroes and then have to set the game down to run for an hour or more. Stupid.

    UnknownSeptember 27, 2013
    So many reviews bragging on this game but my experience was frustrating.I started game on my Galaxy S3 and touch response was terrible. Time to upgrade my phone to S4, I thought game would play better. NOT…Bottom line is, this game freezes, bad touch response (which ruins any chance of fun game play).Dev didn’t answer back. I had spent my cash to excel at this game but gave up and will uninstall. I’ve no patience for crap.

    John Burnett March 4, 2014
    Tough to keep your neighborhoods happy and your heroes moral up and earn money all at the same time at first, but doesn’t take long and you’re on your way… It does get to a point later on where I can’t seem to get any farther, can not beat that thing with 15000 health ?

    Marky SoStrong September 26, 2013
    Tried alot of games and have always lost intrest. Felt the same way about this one….. fast forward 3 days now. I CANT STOP PLAYING. Great game! Suggestion, maybe a animated final kill at the end would be really cool!

    Terry Boxer October 3, 2013
    This game is amazing, I’ve even made a few in app purchases!I’m having trouble with my phone overheating a bit while playing and sometimes even rebooting :/

    UnknownSeptember 16, 2014
    there are some things that are annoying. on the second level sales room with maxed pcs, you make around 50 coins in 50 sec. upgrading to the 3rd level only nets you 70 coins in 70 sec, somewhat useless. other small things like that. easy way to kill several hours. the music and animations get really old. excellent time waster, but just a boring game. i spent $2 on the superium plant and i regret it EVERY DAY. even if you get some IAP you still have to grindton. there’s just no player motivation.

    Elizabeth B November 8, 2015
    Leveled out in only a few days.Looking at old message boards from 2013 it appears ppl had same issue then.You can’t get anyone higher than level 15.It appears that the game was abandoned by the developer.Too bad, it was really fun.

    UnknownFebruary 5, 2014
    Played it through to having a roster of level 6-8 heroes, only to open the so the next day and being presented with a New Game button, not a Load Game one. Played the new roster to level 5&6 for the same thing to happen again. Uninstalled now.

    threeayem September 25, 2013
    I love the developer, and the fact that this game is totally playable without spending anything makes me love them even more. BUT it falls victim to a very repetitive grind after about an hour of play. There aren’t very many things that change any of it up either.

    Jonathan Simpson October 8, 2013
    Great game to play. I am now running out of enemies to defeat as i have only 4 more wanted people to defeat and that irritating beastfly… I need 4 more characters to buy but my current ones are maxed out including my manager… Please bring more stuff out for the game ?
