Customer Reviews

Needs work, but good time killer.

First, game glitches and freezes from time to time. Save often if you are playing in long stretches.

Second, there are no directions or hints. You just get tossed in to figure it out for yourself. There is no help, no idea what your eventual score is based on.

Third, there is no action whatsoever. You travel instantly from town to town and just buy goods in one place, sell in another. There are (pretty) painted scenes for each place but it's a very simple game. Not an rpg or anything of the sort.

That said, if you like setting up trade routes in games you might enjoy this one. It took me 3 days to beat it, and the game does end as soon as you hit $1 mil. There are a few screens that basically say you beat the evil merchant, and that's it. I never did find any way to access the seemingly secret part of the map. Not worth more than $1.

Don't waste your money!! Believe me!!

I love games and am always more then willing to pay for a game. Do not waste your money!! One of my favorite games is tradewinds and it is no longer in the App Store and this game tried to be like it. It's too bad this game had potential but fell way short. I could not find a town to buy my goods for anything over what I paid for them until I traveled to over ten towns. This is after paying all my money to get there. I finally sold my goods for less and kept traveling to see how long it would take to get to a town that would pay more. Very disappointing game.

Impossible Game

The goal of this game is to buy things and sell them for profit.

How is that even possible when you buy something for 85 coins and no one will buy it above that price. Instead they want to buy it for 18, 20, or some other really low price. This happens every single time, with everything you buy!!!!

I restarted this game so many times to try and give it another shot. Maybe I am missing something here? Each time I try though, I buy things and it sells for very low prices and soon I am at 0 coins. I don't get it.

How is it possible to make money when you can't sell anything you buy at a higher price, but instead a much much lower price? Logic only tells you that the game won't let you win that way.

I really wanted to like this game and if I am missing something then maybe you need instructions.

I wish I could get my money back.
