Great game, only one minor problem

It’s a great game, and my only problem was that when I wasn’t playing and there was an upgrade in progress, the upgraded thing was still on the same time, which means that you have to play for a long time to get the upgrade, or you’re basically forced to “rush” the upgrade. Other than that no problems, great game illumination (I play on mobile, so you’re game might be different)

Your game is broken

Okay, first things first, the rovers, are awful, you tell them to do one thing, they do the opposite. I had one go where there was not even a vain of anything and glitched our of the game itself. Happiness meter is pointless because there is no punishment if your “colony” is unhappy. Your colony populates way too fast while trying to deal with broken rovers not making you any supply and trying to upgrade and buy more habitats which cost more and take more time until your happiness is permanently down because of overpopulation however the game doesn’t even warn you of this, all it does is say watch your food and power blah blah... And there is no point overall in the game because it’s like 3 different functions you do over and over, it’s way too repetitive.

Has potential, but fail

Interesting concept but too many glitches to be enjoyable. Rovers drive off on their own. They drive “through” buildings just to go to the “front door” and drive in. Sometimes the rover tries to return to the bay, pauses in front of the bay then drives away. Colonist “happiness” meter is relatively meaningless and has no impact on the game. Have to keep tapping on food and power icons as they are produced. So it’s not like you can build a self-sustainable colony. Gotta tap every 20 seconds to keep it alive. Then, what’s it all for? What is the end goal? No real milestones other than mine more resources, go to the next colony and do it again. Way too much work, too many glitches, very little reward. Nice try, though.
