Ratings and Reviews
I deleted game, but it's not what you think...
Yes, I did delete this game (at level 35 😳) but I immediately reinstalled it because I realized what I was doing wrong. If you don't want to get stuck like I did (unable to hire a manager because I lacked cards and pies to upgrade), do NOT move on to the next town until you've completed ALL objectives. Ignore that flashing green bar and just stay put. I'm starting over from the beginning with the new strategy of staying in each town and upgrading businesses to at least 200 (possibly 300) before I move on so I can earn pies and obtain the cards from the objectives that take longer (like earning huge amounts of $$$). I like this game enough to get the most out of it and if that means not advancing as fast as I did the first time around, so be it. The graphics and characters are great and I LOVE that I can walk away from it and still earn. I can actively play and get bonuses from bird drops but I don't HAVE to. I like that. 😃
So much potential
I wanted to love this game so much. The regular gameplay flowed ok as far as being able to level up my managers and still meet the goals to be able to move to the next town. I play TPB and Bud Farm so I compared it to those. I feel like those games are on the right track to finding balance. This game wasn’t quite on that level but with some tweaks and updates it could be. However, after starting the 2nd event this week I was officially turned off and deleted the app from my phone. I understand that you can’t make these events so easy that everyone will conquer them but to make them so challenging to the point where you really make no progress after the first milestone is ridiculous. Keep in mind that you aren’t collecting a lot of food and cards to level up/hire your managers to work while you’re offline. When you begin your 2nd journey your manager now needs to be level 3 or 4 in order to work automatically or else you need to sit there and manually collect everything. You need at least 3 managers working at all times to continue making progress while offline. No one has that much time to dedicate to a game. And I hate having to spend money off the bat to make progress on something. That was going to be the only way to get at least get all of the required managers leveled up so that I still made progress while the app was closed. I’ll pass. There are other games that have the algorithm right and are not stressful so I will stick with those.
Developer Response ,
Hey there, thank you so much for taking the time to provide your feedback on the game! We're sorry to hear that this has been so frustrating for you, and we will be passing your feedback on to the dev team at this time for their review and consideration going forward.
It's a good game to kill time and even earn currency while away while offering the choice of ads to keep up with needed currency. What is conflicting is an aspect where you "move on" from your town every time you reach a new level/unlock a new shop. When this happens, you essentially start all over again but in a different season and im not sure why they included this aspect rather than just continuously progressing your town. It isnt hard to build back up but rather, repetitively annoying. If seasons Must be added, why not keep jumping between same 4 towns?? Regardless, the biggest bone i have to pick (and many will agree according to reviews), is the events. Im new to this game (only level 6) but i picked up the jist of it fairly quickly. The events work differently and they say so...and that's it. There is no tutorial on how it works so you're just doing what you would normally do (which doesnt progress you) and have all this extra confusing stuff because there is no tutorial or help menu to explain it. So for now, im not seeing the point of events either because how can you progress if you dont know what you're doing? Or why would you want to do them when you dont know these "unique rewards"? So while this game is entertaining for now, it is not one i foresee playing for an extended duration unless some changes are made.
