Editors’ Notes

Rome wasn’t built in a day, thank goodness—where would the fun be in that? Build Away! doesn’t require your constant attention, but this captivating cartoon city might keep you coming back more often than you’d expect, as you check on your construction creations and rake in all that sweet, virtual cash. Adorable interactions, cool surprises, and a neverending stream of clinking coins make it an urban architect’s delight.

Game is great; I miss the complexity pre-update

I have loved this game since the day I downloaded it, but I really really miss the electricity and population features that the latest update removed. I get it: the data says that you will get a lift in downloads and revenue if you simplify the game, but there is a niche for the more complex games that aren’t necessarily full RPG or strategy games. This was a happy medium; kind of like a “Clicker Plus” if you will, but now it just falls right in line with the dozens of other successful clicker games, so I just wanted to share my disappointment and hope that this studio makes another great game that is more complex. Thanks for reading! :)

Developer Response ,

Hey! Thanks so much for the 5-star review and taking the time to provide your valuable feedback - that really means a lot to us. As you rightly point out we made some changes to the recent update. After extensive user feedback and testing, we took out population and power. We think this has helped to make progression more linear, and the game's now a lot easier to understand. In doing so it may well have lost some of the complexity as you say, but we felt population and power were restricting most players from being able to enjoy the game as was intended. The best thing about this update is that you get to unlock a tonne of awesome buildings instead of just building the same ones all the time! Hopefully you can give it a bit more of a chance - we're sure you'll love it before too long :) Thank you! <3

Good but stuck

This is an addicting idle game and I enjoy it. But recently I’ve become stuck - the income I have to make to reach the next city is high, which I understand, but what my buildings make in a day barely make a difference. Rewards from ufos, moose etc. don’t give anything near the current amount needed to help at all. At one time opening briefcases helped a little in moving forward, but now they offer basically nothing income wise and only the very occasional building upgrade. I watch ads for the bonuses and always fill the train but it makes no difference. I’ve spent money on gems and packages but again, I can’t move forward. I hesitate to spend any more money since it seems it doesn’t make a difference. It’s really disappointing because I think the game has a lot of potential- adding new locations and events would be great. At least in farming empire there’s always something to do. But unless the creators of the game can tell me what I’m doing wrong sadly I can’t recommend this game.
