Ratings and Reviews
You download this game and think to yourself “Ah yes, another town building game that I’ll get bored of in a few hours. Cool, cool. At least I know what I’m getting into.” You sit down to play it, and - like many - realize it’s not as straightforward and simple as most other town building games, which is actually one of the greatest pros of this game. Instead of advancing to having to wait FOREVER with just a few hours of game play, the wait times are kept low because of the limitation of space. You’ll have to create workers and save up money to buy expansions to let your town grow. In the meantime, you can get coins and other special items through clever ‘mini-games’, such as finding hearts in your houses or getting coins from special trees.
It’s great if you just want a few minutes to kill, or need something to keep you occupied for hours on end. The game is great, and honestly one of the first games of its kind that I haven’t downloaded after a day or two of playing.
On top of that, the pixel art is freaking beautiful! Compliments to the artist(s) because everything looks gorgeous! Can’t wait to see how big my town can grow and how many jobs I can uncover!
Only fun at first
I’ve played this game for years, and I’ve now hit a wall. While there are plenty of jobs left to create, and I continue to be surprised by the humor, cleverness, and fun building designs in this game, there is a major flaw in later gameplay. The land usage and land expansions are laughably expensive for the money you are making, where it will cost 50+ million for a land expansion (with a discount from a high spirit level!) and be making about 1 million a day. This would mean that it would take you 50 days or more to save up for a small land expansion. Then, if you manage to actually save this up, you barely get any new land. The reason this is so problematic is because land is what allows you to play the game at all. Once you are out of land, you can’t make new jobs or splice new people, because either the job requires land, or you need more housing. If you do manage to save up and expand, you only get about 2 days of actual gameplay before the land is out again (because many jobs require a great deal of land, as does the real estate). I’m very close to deleting the game at this point, just because it is useless and boring at this later stage. It’s a bummer and something I wish they would fix, because I otherwise love the game!
First of all I never play mobile games and this is the first review I have wrote for one purely because I feel like this game deserves it. I’ve seen bad free mobile games. Some full of adds or gross amounts of in app purchases. Obviously they have to make money somehow but it seems ridiculous at times. When I downloaded this game it blew me away. First of all, you can progress very easily without spending a penny. Obviously if you want the game to go faster you can spend money but it isn’t really necessary. None of the wait times in the game are to bad. I haven’t had any over about 10 minutes in the couple hours I’ve played it. So you can easily put it down wait 5 minutes and have 20 minutes worth of things to do when you get back. The adds are here but they aren’t forced and are used only to speed up wait times. The gameplay of this game seems confusing at first but you learn very quickly. The gameplay is a fun and a refreshing change from the normal city builder games. Overall this game deserves 5 stars and if you are looking for a free game to spend some time on and get immediately hooked, I would without a doubt recommend this game.
