Resource management

Resources are a bit off. Resource buildings alone already take up a chunk of resources. When one resource is low we build a resource building to raise the amount of resources, but by the time we’ve raised that resource to 100% another one is low. Continuing this cycle of building resource buildings and never having 100% resources because each resource building requires a different resource to be built.

Developer Response ,

The latest version of Arcadia is out now and we've improved / fixed many of these issues now. Completely rebalanced, plus a host of new features that will make everything easier and more fun to play. We hope to see you back in Arcadia soon! :)

Many of these negative reviews seem to have been before the recent update. There are some crashes but restarting the game fixed the issue and I didn’t lose anything.

The potential for an amazing game is there

The concept and look of the game is fantastic, however there a quite a few bugs that make this game largely unplayable at moment. Some won’t let you upgrade or build buildings and currently I’m just stuck in the middle of one the uninhabited cities unable to leave, which is a shame because tbh is game could be amazing if it was playable.

Version 0.7.0 is now out and has fixed all these issues :) Plus added a lot more new features :) We hope to see you back in Arcadia soon!
