Please fix the problems

I've. Optics that there are more goals to do the having space to do them and since you need to use diamonds to expand this is a problem you should look into fixing the games is fantastic but you should be able to use money for expansion this way you can keep up with the goals. Making diamonds easier to get is a big part of the problem in this game, that should be eaiser to get instead of watching a video and only getting one diamond per video, so please look into and fix these small problems every review that I read everyone loves the games do if these problems gets fixed this. Oiled be the best building game out there hands down thank you 🍻🍻✌

I enjoy playing it but...

I really enjoy playing this game. It’s not like a lot of games where your not really “building” the stuff. You know the ones where it’s covered with a sheet and you have to wait like eight hours for it to be ready. I also like that it doesn’t take long for my energy to restore. But there are a couple of problems. It’s really hard to get enough diamonds to build and expand. I don’t have a Facebook or anything that I can get extra diamonds for. And I definitely don’t want to watch TEN videos for ONE diamond.
Also the game takes a lot out of my iPad. It drains my battery life rapidly. I can only play on the game for two hours before I have to plug it back up again. My iPad gets very hot when I’m playing it also, where as it’s usually pretty cool when I’m playing games.

Need a help function and expanded menus

This is the best G5 game I’ve tried so far. From the beginning there is plenty to do, and the goals help direct players through the game in an orderly way.

But a help feature would be nice in case of questions. Also, an ‘undo last action’ button. Finally, the build menus should include all options available. I accidentally deleted my glass factory while trying to remove a single piece of road next to the building, and the factories aren’t available on any menu so I can rebuild it. The goal for the glass factory is gone, so I’m just stuck. It’s holding up many of my other goals because I couldn’t undo my mistake or replace the glass factory. I’m not even sure I can keep going with the game without it.

So be VERY careful when bulldozing, and read the prompts that verify your action. This is totally my own fault, not a failure in the game, but not being able to recover is hard.

Finally, it would be really helpful to have a feature that can rotate the view of the city so that we could see and manipulate smaller objects which are out of sight behind larger items.
