Ever wanted to be Mayor? Ever wanted to run a town, develop the land, and see a metropolis grow? Well, look no further than Merge Town!, the newest title from Gram Games. The concept of the game is simple - you have a plot of land, and it’s your job to turn it into a town. Every so often, you’ll be gifted with a house. Each house can be merged with other houses of the same variety to form a bigger home. Every house built on the land will earn you money - the bigger the home, the more you will earn. The more you earn, the more houses you can purchase, and the more you can push the clock to develop faster. Use your spoils to discover new homes, and to expand into all new towns.
You have a singular goal: make your towns the best they can be. The bar at the top of the screen measures development - Merge buildings to earn XP and level up. Higher levels will unlock more space in your plot for you to develop, which will only allow you to develop your town to even further greatness. Once you develop into new towns, keep an eye on all your land, ensuring that you’re merging and developing to your full potential.
Merge, build, and develop your very own towns with Merge Town!

Watch ads to play.
I love those little zen games, the ones where you can just fidget with an app without worrying about timers or points or lives. This is set up to be one of them, but it quickly becomes nothing more than an ad-intensive experience.
You start off easy enough, get a crate every 10 seconds which gives you a house, which you merge with another house to get a slightly bigger house. Merge two slightly bigger houses to get even bigger house. That's pretty much the entirety of the game, but unless you really are willing to drop cash on the developers for this, you're going to hit a very real issue. Since the starting blocks never increase, each consecutively larger building takes twice as long to make as the previous. Forcing you to spend the in-game currency that your houses have been generating, or die of old age as exponential growth takes over. No problem so far, but opening the buy menu triggers an advert 50% of the time. Menu options should not be gated behind ads.
Ads to get bigger houses, ads to get a few 'free' houses, ads to increase the size of those houses, banner ads while you play. Ads while you change town. Ads when you open up the buy menu. Ads when you bring the game back to the foreground. This is more ad than game, and while I'm very tolerant of ads and the need for them in a free-to-play game, this title is over the top.
Ads are an integral part of the gameplay
I purchased several upgrades for this game and the way this game works is if you were to try to merge buildings to create the top tier buildings you need you would have to make millions and millions of merges making it humanly impossible to win without making purchases of higher tier buildings from the shop unfortunately the money comes so slowly that the only way to reasonably get higher tier buildings is to “upgrade” which means to watch an ad. And so after a certain level, even after buying virtually every reasonable upgrade, you must watch ads to progress. It isn’t a viable strategy to upgrade your basic box drops because it would still take millions of them to get the top tier ones you really need. Also the boost that splits the box drop in half on the sunset world is broken since the last update and takes 10 seconds regardless...the game is a very fun concept but they should look more to AdCap for inspiration on how to make money. It’s one thing for people who don’t pay to watch ads but to make ads an integral part of the gameplay is ridiculous.
I like it but there’s lotta ads and and it’s timed of boring sometimes because because there’s no levels there is just the one thing and when you get to a new level you have to start all over again it be better if you just start on the same level in a different thing like when you have the houses and then go to the beach I had to start all over again which was kind of sad and I think that maybe like in the dragons there to be a camp in different levels that you can go to that level one level two and level III because when you’re doing it now it’s kind of just like you just do it over and over again and there’s really not that much new exciting stuff and you think that you can learn it so that’s what I think about the damage there but maybe there could be something yeah and maybe to be a little bit more entertaining so thanks for making it
