Good game, I have an improvement idea

I like the game, maybe the mining section can have a third option called material refinement, where before mining, you select which metals will appear more often, a percentage chance, that increases when upgrading the refinement option, example, if one wants to craft a gold and mythril sword, the Refinement subsection have a list of all metals, the person would select Gold and Mythril, the first upgrade will increase their chances if spawning by 1 percent, the next upgrade of the refinement area will increase the metals boost chance by 1 making it 2%, more upgrades will increase the boost, you would be able to select as many metals as possible, though of course selecting an all metals at once would cancel out the effect, this could also be used to exclude a certain metal. Example, if someone doesn’t want their sword to contain Copper, the forger can go to the refinery and select all metals except copper, another mining upgrade thst would be interesting could be Ore capacity, which when upgraded could increase the size of the mining area, and the amount of ores thst can be there before you have to pick the one to mine. If you want more details, tell me and I will add the question answers to the review without editing. I would like to help you improve your gameLion Studios

We need a way to select what we want and upgrade chances

If you add something like a option to pick and choose what ores you can make it shows that I’ve 75 percent of the people playing your game will love it the other 25 will be hating it hardcore for the fact it’s less challenging so as a result for a fix you could use stuff like chance decreasing factors if you don’t make a sale or if you fail to do it correct then the factor of better ore can be increased by adding a level into it making it easier for specific objects it might also be cool for smelting down ores to be a thing like combining ores and putting it into a vault of sorts that you can later use to re smelt the ore into a shape of a sword or other objects which brings me to the last idea you should have more objects that you can pour the melted ores into so that you can make objects armor and more and also letting the player customize the shapes by drawing from a data base made by you and if you have a team to create and then after allow others to add to the data base via the game please keep this in mind while we do these comments for your best hopes of success and for our entertainment think about it.

Great game! Here’s what I have to say.

I rarely write a review on apps. But this game is fun and a time killer. What really amazed me was that ads are not constantly ruining the game for me. I also love how the game goes it’s great! I love mining it’s satisfying hoping to get best ores to make the best sword.
I get an amazing feeling when I get a great set of ores to make a amazing sword. Although I wish we had the option to buy ores I do accept the fact that to buy certain ores will be extremely expansive. I love the smelting and hammering of the sword. I do hope we can get other weapons we can make. And maybe more designs to put on the swords.
I do have idea where we can make contacts with shops or guilds where they order a certain amount of weapons and what they look like and what ores there made out of. And once we fill out that contact a certain were paid amount of money of either how fast we finish the contract or the quality of the weapons.
It’s just an idea but this game is great and stay great.
