Really good, tons of potential, but incredibly tricky

I just want to reiterate another review I saw. It’s a really fun game but having no option to fire people makes things tough. Also it’s not always clear what effect certain purchases will have until after they’re made. I plan to keep trying to find the right balance to start off, and I honestly appreciate the challenge, but I think it would help to have a little more room for error early on. You can make reasonable choices but still wind up in debt after the first week and have no way to get out.

Really Fun Game

hi! i never leave reviews on stuff but i’m gonna try w this one. i really love this app, it’s addicting. my only problem is that i’ve literally started over like 300 times. please, please, please give us the option to fire people. i feel like once you start hitting negative numbers the game is pretty much over for you. the option to fire people would help get players back up and out of the negatives. this game is insanely difficult but that’s what i like so much about it. it’s realistic. it’s really good. i just suggest being able to edit your team. and also, i feel like advertising such as billboards + news papers should be longer than a week. maybe charge every week for them instead of me having to tap the ad every time a week passes. but besides that, this app is wonderful :)

Hey kayurie,

Thanks for playing and for taking a moment to leave a review. I'm planning a large update over the next month or so (not a lot of free time right now) that will include the ability to fire staff. I've heard a few players mention the marketing point being more of a recurring expense rather than weekly and I think thats a great idea!

Thanks for the support and playing the game!

Far Too Difficult

the concept is neat and i like the design/colors but the actual gameplay is way too difficult and the tutorial does absolutely nothing to help. if you're going to make a realistic business management simulator you need a realistic training course that doesn't just throw you to the wolves. i started over about 5 times and could not at any point get my daily earnings out of a deficit. i also find it dumb that you can't "fire" or reduce the amount of things/workers that you bought, if you want it to be realistic you need to give the player a chance to modify their business plans to suit the money they have. if an adult can't figure it out then a child definitely couldn't and i assume that is your target demographic. i really hope you improve the game in the future and make it less difficult to play as i would love to actually make a fancy candy on it someday.
