Better than you think!

Well this developer nailed it. This game scratches all the right spots! Its as idle as you need it to be, and i often am playing 30-60 min without needing to wait for a battle or ship delivery. Which is perfect for me! Looks like it will have great replay value too, and with the relatively low purchase cost (and no pay wall at all!), this is probably the best app ive gotten in a long time. Great work! Thoughts on things to consider: a little clearer detail on the trade route tutorial would be good, as well as a better explanation of how to grow gold supplies. Also, i think it would be helpful if when i click on higher level settlers like merchants or paragons, it would show me what buildings they open up. That would help beginners plan. Not a deal breaker at all, and i highly recommend this game :).

Glad I tried it

Okay, so I was initially very skeptical of paying for an idle game, but I’m really glad I did.

This looks cutesy and simplistic at a glance, and for the first couple of hours it is, but by the time you’ve been playing a few minutes here and there for a week you’ll realize you’re now quite busy and the game mechanics go much deeper than meets the eye. You’ll also see all the mistakes you made staring you in the face and spend the next week or two trying to correct them. For some that will be a bummer, but for the min/max and micromanaging crowd it’s an awesome experience. If you like resource management games, you can’t ask for better on mobile.

My criticisms to the dev (I see that you read these)- The tutorial needs expanded a bit. I went an embarrassing amount of time just guessing at battle results before realizing I could scroll through the attack rounds to see who hits who and for how much damage. Also, the best tools for managing input/output of tiles is hidden in the settings menu and turned off by default? Why? Lastly, I know it’s an idle game, but mid-game slows to a crawl if you didn’t get lucky and set up your starting island correctly, which I’m sure many of us did because there’s no way to anticipate just how constrained space will become pretty quickly.

Overall a great experience for the price, and the dev seems to be listening to feedback and updating. I say throw your coin at it and give it a try for yourself.

Not your normal idle game

This isn’t your basic click stare at idle game. This is a very deep and immersive idle game that will definitely keep you busy and will require you to work at it. I’ve been playing pretty regularly for just under a week now and I haven’t scratched the surface on what this game has to offer. To be completely honest there are times where all you can do is just wait until a ship gets to its destination or attack is completed ( in the game you can upgrade your ships so having to wait won’t be much of issue in the future). Overall I think the developer has done a great job with this game there is a lot to do. Anyone looking for a deeper and captivating idle game should definitely give this a try!

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your great review Ejilah :) As an idle game the waiting times are designed to make the game more relaxed to play alongside the day and I try my best to balance that it offers a lot to do and to enjoy. Best wishes, Tobias
