Great game but crash proneness

I like the concept and play but it crashes too often to get a full enjoyment. Haven’t played more than a 10min session without it crashing at least twice.

Update: it’s been about 3 days since installing and the crashes have reduced to about 1 per hour. Definitely enjoy the game, wait time to build is not ridiculous like other games where you might have to wait days if you don’t want to pay. I like the mini games, it’s a good way to keep the person involved while waiting for buildings.

Suggestion for the train delivery, I wish I can choose which materials I want to get rid of which will determine what materials I would get. Also at this point I’m running out of gold to mine, 90% of the mines I discover requires the next level, so I’m running out of gold which means I can’t play the mini games, in turn no point playing the game until the upgrade is finished.

Game crashes too much and is money pit

Game crashes almost everytime I try to play it. It is usually when clicking on the menus on the left side, but even today is crashed when just looking for mining nodes while driving.

Cost- I get that you need make money and have no issue with that. But the time sinks you have in place are extraordinary. 12hrs to level up a building? The cost... 60 pink gems to bypass? I have no problem putting a couple bucks into the game that I’m having fun with, but long term, I don’t want to be fleeced for more that $20 to $40 bucks for end game content(Which is the average price of a decent game). It feels like the dollars required is not in line with what the experience should be. Wouldn’t you rather have a million kids spending 5 bucks than 200k kids $10? Feels like a Mobilestrike fleecing where it costs you thousands of dollars just to be competitive, and more as the level cap is raised over and over.

Overall, the game is ok if you feel like killing some time. It’s annoying that the warehouse is always full with never the right amount of the required item. The time required to upgrade items is horrible and you will probably save that for bedtime and check back in the morning to see if it’s done. I’ll probably delete it in the next couple days since it feels pointless to continue. If you want to progress in the game, it costs too much or takes too long. Wasn’t this supposed to be fun?

Great game, great show!!

I’ve been playing this game for about a week now and I really like it.

A few things I’ve noticed about it.

It’s hard to figure out what needs to be done sometimes to level up. It might be nice to have somewhere to look to see what all needs to be accomplished. It also crashes quite a bit but I can usually just jump right back in. I downloaded it on my iPad (older one) and an old iPhone 5c and it wouldn’t work at all. It was just stuck on the loading screen. Pink gems are pretty rare which is a bummer considering that’s what it costs to speed things up. More workers would make it better. Sometimes I have to put my phone down for 7 hours so something can be built. We should definitely get to keep the gold from the gold challenge. Not sure why it doesn’t let us... Overall I really do like the game.
