Lead your people as they reclaim land, sow crops, hunt beasts, gather resources, construct buildings, trade valuable resources, and expand their homes. Their success is the key to your settlement's prosperity.

Your population is the core element of production and development, but beware — plagues from other lands, an aging population, or baby booms could upend your society.

Mining, agriculture, construction, trading — each development path offers its own benefits. Choose freely and play to your strengths to build your industry step by step.

No way they tested before porting to App Store

To start off with, this game has a good concept to play with. However, the developer was super lazy with this port that it’s not worth buying. When loading up the game, it’s all in Chinese. Why in the world would you launch a game with that? That’s the first sign they didn’t test the game before launching. Secondly, the UI/buttons and pop ups all over lap with each other. Making it extremely difficult to even navigate the in game screen. I’ve also experienced multiple hard crashes that resulted in my game save being completely wiped. It’s extremely frustrating when you sink a few hours in, and save and then the game says nope no more fun for you. And lastly, why in the world is this game an online only game? It’s a single player game with no multiplayer function. So why does it need to be online? Only reason I can think of is to track the user.

Be smart and don’t buy this game. Also the developer won’t respond to any issues unless it’s about the language at the start up. If I’m Apple, I’d be removing this game from the App Store as it is an embarrassment to the store.

So close….

The gameplay is there, but the UI makes it very difficult to enjoy. So much wasted potential! I will happily rate 5 stars once some design changes are made for iOS (iPhone 14 Pro Max and iPad Pro 12.9). Many of the buttons are halfway off screen or covered by the dynamic island or Home Screen indicator. The UI looks good but takes up too much of the screen with no way to minimize most elements

Also - there is no cross-save support between iPhone and iPad

This is the City Building game I've been waiting for.

So, I'm a half hour in and my initial thoughts. All menus are loaded in English. I did not need to create a TapTap account as there is a Guest Login option. The UI seems totally functional, but I would like to be able to minimize the Task Goal prompt. Runs great with no crashes on my iPad pro.
This game looks to be amazingly deep, with none of the phony glitz of the thousands of city-building games that don't really allow much open-world freedom.
