Fun but Super Glitchy and things that don’t make sense

Very fun game being able to build your town. A lot of tasks that allow you to stack money and resources. Fun graphics, events and themes. It’s honestly the game I play the most. However, it’s super glitchy. Errors loading or connecting. Some weekly events I’ve won I never received the award. There needs to be a better balance of supplies you get from shipments. More supplies to unlock land and less to build buildings. The ratio just doesn’t make sense when the ability to build a building is few and far between, dependent on your level. Also, it doesn’t make sense that sometimes a shipment or wagon is needing a supply that you don’t even have a building with which to make it. Like a shipment asks for a flower. Well I have to have a flower shop. But I can’t build one because I’m not at the level to even build it? Even an event where you have to harvest crops for points. The time you have to harvest is 4 hours, but the crops they ask you to make to harvest takes 7+ hours lol. So when you harvest you won’t even be able to get the points…. Just frustrating and needs to be thought through better.

Weird pacing and disappearing cash?

This game was super fun in the beginning. But as I played, things got frustrating… fast. First there’s the pacing. Super weird. It feels like I’m leveling up too fast because I’m being asked for things that will take me days to acquire on my own. I have so many wagons (the main coin makers) just sitting there with things that I feel like I’m days away from getting. You need coins and materials to make buildings to get the materials the wagons are asking for you for. How can I buy things when I’m locked away from the main coin maker? And once you have the coins, you usually don’t have enough materials (which you get from entirely luck based 4-6 hour steamboat trips). So the pacing just feels… off to me. Second, your cash will disappear. At first it was just 5 or 6 at a time, nothing tooo bad tbh. But then I lost all 76 in one go. Frustrating, right (this was my work around for the steamboat materials)? I managed to start building it back up only to lose all 30 or so AGAIN. This isn’t just me either, 3 other people in my guild have reported the same issue. So now I feel like I have to spend it as soon as I get it or lose it. I honestly wouldn’t spend real money on this game because the amount of glitches is truly astonishing for a released game.
TLDR: Your main money maker is nearly impossible to complete in a timely manner because of pacing issues and your cash will disappear. Don’t spend real money on this game.

Money grab rip off of FarmVille

This game is practically a reskinned carbon copy of FarmVille with the addition of sending supplies to wagons as an added task. Game play is super fast and guided up to about level 10 then you get a little actual game play before you hit the pay wall at lvl 15. Pretty much everything about this game is set up to make you pay real money to keep playing once you hit that level 15 pay wall. And I don’t mind throwing a little money at a developer every once in a while if the game play is good but literally half the time I’m playing the game is throwing pop ups at me to upgrade my barn cuz I’m out of space. Well yes, cuz the game is set up so you don’t ever have enough barn space to hold items so you have to pay real money to get the needed resources to upgrade the barn. And the cost for those resources is usually between $5-10 real dollars for a single barn upgrade that only gives you an additional 10 item capacity of the barn. The only other way to get those resources for upgrades is to send boats loaded with supplies but the boats take 4 hours to come back unless you pay special bucks (that are hard to get in game) and once you open the mine, the boats will bring back mining tools as well as the resources to upgrade the barn and build city buildings which further limits your barn upgrade abilities. Just everything about this game is set up to paywall you into paying and the amount of real money they want for is over the top.
