Pixel People Review - 4/5

Overall, I really like this game. I find the design of the game quite cute and the game idea itself is quite fun. There is usually something to do while you wait for your buildings to finish or for your clones to arrive. The game is also full of terrible puns (such as the names of the clones (Bill Ding, the architect clone)) and the newscast on the bottom of the screen make the game all the more enjoyable.
However, the game does have some glitches the developers need to sort out. Sometimes when the game loads, you can not press any buttons or click on any buildings. Other times, when I attempt to log in to Facebook, it just shuts down the app.
Another issue I have with this game is the fact that it constantly asks me to connect to the online server and log in with Facebook. It would be really nice to have an option to turn this off for good.
Lastly, as your level rises, it seems like so does the time needed to complete a building or for a clone to arrive. This often leaves me a lot of empty time where I have nothing to do. It would be nice if the buildings had a constant building time.
Generally, I would recommend this game to anyone who is looking for a fun way to relax. This game is very fun to play, even possibly addicting!

Needs more attention

This is one of the few games that I really like, one of those games where I spend the most of the time. That changed because the creators of the game didn't released no update in months, long time passed since they released the christmas update. This game is one of the games that I would want to see a lot of new stuffs, but that's something I'm scared, that, now that they put this new update in April, developers won't release an update in like months, is something I'm scared of.. I would really love to see that the people who created this game, spend more time fixing stuffs and adding stuffs and updating stuffs to this game. Leaving that behind, this is a game that everybody should play at least once, they will love it.

Great, but has a few issues

This is, overall, a very well-built and well-designed tycoon game. I got caught by the eight-bit graphics an it's been a well ride from there!

However, I've noticed many problems. The lag in the game builds as you add buildings and other things to your city. That isn't unexpected, but it's led to another problem: spliced clones.

When you give a gene to a clone and it finishes loading, it messes up. What it does is it force-closes the game sometimes when you tap on the new worker. I normally have to hit Repair about 3 times before even trying to send out a new worker, and even then it isn't a guaranteed fix.

There's another thing that... bothers me. As you progress, it also becomes a longer wait for clones to appear. It isn't too bad, but I've only had about 4 total hours of gameplay and clones are arriving every 7 minutes. I don't know if the time stays constant after a certain time, but if not I suggest it does that (like once you hit 15 minutes for each clone, it stays 15 minutes).

Overall, it's a game that takes you to a sense of addiction. I showed my friend this, and he was addicted within 3 minutes. It does have some bad points, but the built-in features fixes the problems temporarily; until the next update.
