Its a good game, but a slow game.
You build items, people come in and you seel them. It is a good management sim without feeling like there is too much time pressure and you still feel active all the time. The big problem is that it just wants your time and dosn't give much back (I need to explain this).
While I was playing, I keep "discovering things as I played". Example 1, if you but a wepons display to improve your shop, you will spend your money and then the game will tell you that you have to have guild members accept it before you can use it. This means setting up a guild! Example 2, If someone walks up and says hire me, you will end up firing people in duplicated jobs. I played for about an hour when example two happened (note: there are way more than just these two). I had been training my carpenter from the beginning of the game, thought "hey a second carpenter would be nice" and clicked hire. My hour of training and investement then walked out the door!

This game is like going to a resturant and ordering food. The waiter tells you that you have to pay up front. Then the waiter tells you that you have to order a starter if you want the main. So you order a starter, paying up front. Then the waiter says that that started can only come with a fish main, so you make another order and pay for the main again. Then he tells you that that main is only for people on dates and you have to leave the resturant and meet someone new.

At an hour in I quit. Not because it was bad, but because it was wasting the time I was putting into it.

Everything about the game is a 5. But you don't value the players so hello 2!

(This review may sound bitter, but I am bitter. Especially when a line of text saying "this will replace your ..." before the do you wish to contine question that is already there could make everything better).

Usually you compare games to good games because you see parallels of mechanics, aesthetics, or just because they were similar and your enjoyed them. I was going to be like " Recettear and The Guild 2", but then I got to that credit days everyone is mentioning, and now... "Zyanga monetization bullshit".

this would be a fantastic game if it didnt get greedy and want us to pay to play it! This isnt the place for such games, newgrounds is for free to play game content...its a genuine shame, because the game IS alot of fun...shame they got greedy though

Same as everyone else reviewing and commenting. Fun game play. Fun concept. But I don't think anyone on here is going to pay to play. Please just get rid of the tokens. Ruins the game.

repost this game without the waiting in-between days and i think people will give more stars. One thing to remember is that this is newgrounds, not facebook where those pay things work really well.
