-Make sure you don't cut down too many trees, or you could remove your fruit source!
-Each tool will break after a certain amount of uses
-There's no real point to paying off your mortgage, it's really just there as an overall goal.

If you have any suggestions, it'd be a big help if you left them in a review!

*Fixed mortgage resetting- for those who have the medal, the mortgage should automatically go back down to 0.
* Fixed some minor bugs

The items are more expensive than what you start with. But you can get at least SOMETHING on Friday's offers. Why don't you give starter tools at least? Oh and by the way, I fell asleep in the middle of your game. Thank god you got a save feature.

I played the game for 20 minutes and cannot figure out how to earn money. I got 500 $ and every tool to make money costs $1000.

Nobody wants to buy stuff from me, everybody demands goods that require the $ 1000 tools.

If you make the player spend more then 20 minutes to make things going you are doing it wrong.

There also seems nothing useful to spend the money on, no growrth Paying off mortgage - sorry doesn't sound too fun. Neither does buying flowers or changing color of roof. Pointless game.

Ok graphics wise, but game play got a bit ho hum quite quickly. things that are pointless in this game: the flowers the flower guy sells, haven't found much of a use for them. the last two houses before the bridge, really, WHY? The fruit basket in players inventory?? Why??

I don't even have any clue how to start playing! D;

I have $500 and to buy anything that will get me more money I need $1k. And I have no idea where to sell the fruits I get from the already planted trees. :(

Anyway, I'm sure the game is fun once you start playing.

I came for the medals and stayed for the awesomely fun game. Haha. But no, really. I spent hoouurss playing around with all the little activities even after I paid off the mortgage. (It's never been so much fun to do so!!) I've never played Animal Crossing or anything like it before, but now I'm thinking it's sorta my thing. Just a couple things: it would be nice to know how many times I've mined for ores rather than how many ores I ended up finding (..just so it's easier for me to count how many more to get the medal; just like with the fishing counter). I recently got it after finding 96 ores. Also, because everything was pictured kinda small (but the backgrounds for each part of the day were beautiful. Nighttime, 9pm, and early morning, 4-ish, are my favorites.), maybe you could put in a little title that appears when the player hovers over the item in the inventory sections. I couldn't figure out what fish was which, and I had the same problem with the types of items for your Mine Quest game. (I've never played Minecraft either.) One more thing: maybe you could add in a button to easily close the menus (like Space or Enter as the "Continue" option) kinda like you have the Esc as a saving option, ..if that makes sense, so there isn't so much clicking around. I really appreciate the Space to do actions. In the end, I just really liked playing the game, earning the medals, and achieving the goal. I look forward to playing more of your games!
