Reviews for "Cycle; Fourth Moon"

Why play this.

#1 the controls are stupid make it keyboard or mouse only or make it so that i can use both without switching repeatedly

#2 THE MUSIC IS JUST NOISE it's not nice to listen to

#2 the sound is too loud as well

#4 if i wanted to play this kind of game why play this when any of the animal crossing are infinity better especially when this is basically ripped off animal crossing

Oh and hurray for getting kicked out of the store before i knew what i was doing this game is pretty much wasted effort. also selecting a tool from the store takes forever if it's any of the items between two

Ahaha fair enough. I'll work on improving some of the things you mentioned. Thanks for trying it out anyway!

What is this? A game for ants?

I quite liked this, I got to past the paying of the mortgage before quitting it. I agree with the mouse thing someone mentioned. I actually did adjust fairly quick to using both but would have been nice to just use the keyboard.

I reckon the mailbox would have been pretty cool to have been updated past the start. Maybe have a letter every now and then offering tips like mentioning hints about the villagers who pay double money for fish, ores etc :)

Thanks! Yeah a lot of people seem to agree that the keyboard/mouse controls are kinda iffy. I'll work on improving them ASAP.

Great idea for the letterbox- I'll definitely add something like that in a future version :)

It is a great game, of it's kind.

The most important thing I find about it is, let us say, "coziness" of the little virtual planet,
that would very much not do without balancing aspects like [shops don't work at night], [there is one day a week that shop gives a 50% discount] yet [the player should not feel like he has "Not made it in time! aww" too much].

That balancing is an arguement, in my disagreement with some point a number of reviewers have expressed, the point that the player is moved with a keyboard, the letterbox or the other thing gets activated with a keyboard, yet the opened menu needs a mouse click to close. Well, that is actually good, cause it keeps the game experience in the line of not being a "Shift"-like skill mastery ground, but of "coziness." ':)

JackAstral responds:

Thanks! Great points- coziness is definitely what I was going for. :)

I think there might be something wrong with this. I got a medal, but then it didn't show up. It happened when I refreshed the page. I still think this is a pretty good game. I am not that interested to get too much into it, though. I don't really like these kinds of games.

It still has a lot of hard work put into it. I especially like how well detailed everything is. It's always nice to get a big open picture of everything that's going on. I'm kind of familiar with the games you mentioned. The music gives off a great feeling of outer space.

JackAstral responds:

Thanks for playing + reviewing :)

I'm not sure about the medals thing- it seems to be working properly for me. I'll look into it!
