This game definitely has potential, but it is still too early to judge. What bothers me the most is how off the numbers are. I managed to miss 3 times in a row once at 100% attack success, double misses are quite more common. Maybe just cap the hit chance at 95% and tell the truth. Also I think the progress is quite hard when changing the area, the increased risk is not worth the slightly increased loot in my oppinion - but maybe I didn't play long enough.

Thanks for the feedback, yeh i think theres a slight bug with the success rate as ive noticed this with the run away success rate too... 100% sometimes still brings you into a fight and it shouldnt so ill look over it :)

This is pretty cool. I'm wondering why the dog can't eat mutated food though. If you stumbled across some wasteland mutt that survived this long you'd think he's been eating whatever. Buddy, I've seen dogs eat some crazy stuff and shrug it off like nothing. If a human can choke it down, a dog is going to have no problem.

xD yeh i suppose... ill add it in the next update :D was keeping it simple for now i didnt want to add a radiation meter for the dog though which mutated food would do im guessing?

Nice Idea.

The text in the encounters seems to overlap after the first one...

A cool idea, but being able to keep your character on life support... by watching ads, of all things... really takes away from this game.

JmPrsh153 responds:

Watching ads and/or tokens aren't forced or on the web version, they are just my way to ask for support from player if they wish to do so, otherwise i wouldn't be able to support it for as long as i'd hoped due to financial issues.

Any feedback to improve the game though i'm all ears!

There's a slight bug/annoyance in this game. Whenever I start it up to continue playing again, it saves everything BUT my Max HP, so I go from 350 HP to 140

Wow yeh i realised i hadnt saved the MAXHP when using the energy drinks :/ ... i had it save when upgrading your strength... fixed now so will be updated soon
