What's New in Version 1.1.6
This update fixes a couple of minor display issues in the game, and that's it!
This is one of those games that the app store sees too infrequently these days. Fiz is an excellent business game centering on running a brewery, and it is a lot of great things -- and a couple not so great, admittedly -- in one nice package. Simple graphics and audio, which are plenty fine. Lots of detail you can ignore if you want, but you can learn about brewing if you take a few seconds here and there. Interface is a little clunky, so you'll re-enter settings sometimes, but once you get used to it, it's not bad. The only real question mark is the sales model, where customers judge what to buy on markup...which is typically invisible to customers. However, I can see why this was done: as a means to create a dynamic market. Perhaps not the best solution, but not a bad one. However, this is a pay-one, no IAP, play as long as you like, offline game, and THAT is awesome. Add in the upgradeability of you brewery and employees, varied challenges and events, ad sheer scope of detail, and this is a game I'm delighted I found! SERIOUSLY hoping for a sequel!! Total A+!!
This is a thoroughly entertaining offering in the business sim genre, and my personal favorite. The gameplay is not difficult to get the hang of, and the replay value of the game is high. It can be used easily as a quick time waster, playing off and on over a longer period of time - or by marathoning through challenges and events for hours on end.
I highly recommend this game, and it is worth every penny. Not having in-app purchases and being able to play the game in full with no internet connection or additional money spent is great.
bad interface and bad algorithms. fun tho
The game reaks of low quality. The game doesn't have much of replayablity as the interface is tedious, with interrupting popups and blocking actions making you redo your steps. Some screens lack information and there's really no good overview overall for even the most vital information.
Last but not least, the calculations are broken. this pertains mostly to the actual selling of your beer, and completely ruins the replay value. It took me a week or so to notice, before that I was having a fairly enjoyable time playing the game.
Recommended for bored people who like the idea of brewing beer.
