Ratings and Reviews
I don't really write reviews but...
Okay first, hands down, this is a great game. Very simple to understand and a well amount of thought put into it. If you're the type of person to like interactive games, this isn't what you're looking for. This game is more like, "I'm bored and want to put my brain to work". It involves staring at your phone for a couple minutes before you can move forward, but only when you get deeper in the game. For $2 I'm satisfied, but, it's more of a dollar game.. I'm not bummed though. Maybe if they added another possible mode (not involving clips.. maybe some color) and expand from there. This game truely sparked for me and I've had fun completing it.
Fun but GAME BREAKING BUG
This game was really fun up until I got completely blocked from all progress so don’t make the same mistake.
When I went into stage 2 (released the hypnodrones) it removes the Trust counter from your interface, essentially making it impossible to improve your computing power or memory. That was fine because I had enough to continue the game... but then I accidentally clicked Xavier Reinitialization in the upgrade menu. Thus, my processors and memory are at zero and I cannot make more, making it impossible to generate ops outside of quantum computing (which is not nearly enough to get the 45,000 for upgrades and 16,000 PER yomi strategic tournament).
All in all, this game would be a lot MORE fun if I could play the rest of it. Devs, please issue a fix for this.
Just one problem
I thought things were moving a bit slower than they should, and when I timed how many clips per second there were, it showed that I was making three hundred per second. But it took me three seconds to make three hundred clips. I thought, “Oh, I’ll just close the app and re-open it.” But it was still the same. The problem has persisted throughout my entire time playing this game. I’m not sure if anyone else has experienced this, so I have an iPhone 6 that has the highest IOS update available for it. Please fix this problem if you can. Thanks for your time.
