Game starts out with a big interface and a forced text tutorial.
Two huge no no's.
It would be a great game if there was a fleshed out save system. Like the ability to export a save. There is a lot to this game, and it's just no fun playing and worrying about losing all of your progress. It was great fun but, I cant replay a game like this without being able to secure my save. And if there is a in-game mechanic to do so, i couldn't find it. Still though it's a free flash game, the developer didn't have to give us anything. And for a free game there is a good amount of playable content.
Just found out about the games you made, such as this gem
and while it has some serious issues (iron constant -7, certain buildings like casino not working at all, very,very,very slow resource gathering, did not unlock even half of the building when i defeated the game) i really loved it and its concept
I really hope you would make a third one, its a really nice game and with certain tweaks and maybe some more visual stuff, you'll easily get in the top 10 of all time games
I loved the first one and love this one. Only a few things I don't like. You can't leave it running because as soon as an event pops resource gain stops, Foundry and smelter drain iron and stops production of tin and you have to keep buying them or hunting them down in quests to maintain it. And you can only get so many resources without having to sit there which I wouldn't mind except that I have to SIT there I can't leave it running
Looking back I think I wish I had changed it to allow idling more. See, more initial idea was that it be more of a frequent checkup game. You check on if a few times an hour, every ten minutes, a kind of deal like that. Something to play while reading blogs, etc. In the future, I will make my games like this fully idleable.
This game is fun to play, unfortunately there are some treats that makes it hard: for example, when you have build the fondry, you are constantly loosing iron; moreover, you only can have mushrooms or moon pearls by questing, so you have to do the same quest ver and over to get them because they're important for magicals units.
To finish, how can you discover relics for the relic vault? Do you have to fulfil special conditions to get them?
Besides theses unpleasantness things, it's a cool game, some events are funny (scissors!) and the drawings are beatiful. I had a ton of pleasure by looking my city growing up!
