A Disappointing Mixed Bag....

I really wanted to give this five stars but the glitches are so bad. The game strategy is fun and could keep me playing for hours but every 15 minutes I get automatically backed out of the game. Also, the developers changed the stamina so your character immediately runs out of life. Like, two steps away from camp and your already in need of food. Finally, making your customers pay for game favors with real money cheapens the game. It's like I am playing one of those lame Facebook games or at a video gaming cafe. The dev team should allow people to tap into their screen money. I have nearly 86,000 chits accrued but can't purchase food in town or buy "favors" or gold with the game money.

UPDATE: After a few months of playing and really attempting to develop my town (nearly single-handedly, I might add), I finally accepted that this game is so poorly programmed, it isn't worth my time. I now get bumped out at each trail, about every 8 minutes, sometimes without completing the trail so I do the same trail over and over without going anywhere. Items have regularly disappear from my backpack and you still have to purchase gold with real dollars, not game money. In the end, it's an original and fun concept, just poorly designed in some ways and definitely poorly programmed that it's full of glitches. It has become exhausting and boring to play.

Good game, very buggy (for me?)

So, I've been playing this game for a while now (maybe a month or two?) and despite the amount of bugs I've encountered I still find it pretty engaging. It's definitely my current time-sink and the game progression keeps me engaged enough to continue playing.

I've had issues with the game crashing (both from regular play and watching the ads), throwing away items for me, and this weird issue of it heating up my phone to the point where I have to worry bc I can feel it through my fairly thick case. I felt prompted to write a review when I was forced (the camera wouldn't look away) to watch a raccoon walk the length of the trail I was on before it got to the edge of the map and continued to walk off into a white abyss.

While the premium items are kind of "pay-to-win", the game basically functions like a single-player game anyway (outside of the town mechanics, which are cooperative) so it doesn't affect anyone else. So they're more "pay to spend less time gathering stuff" And while they would be vastly more convenient, you don't have to buy them to enjoy the game (tho, do it if you can afford it since it keeps the game running, I assume lol).

Great game but some problems

I love this game because I'm into the kinda thing but like a lot of other reviews have said it does glitch a lot and it eats my battery so quick like I can have 100% and when I exit out from just ONE game play on there my battery is to 70%! Then just keeps going down every time I play but it's so ADDICTING having to survive and balance your food and resources I really do recommend this game because of the graphics and the music but also as someone else said in the reviews in the town you can buy shops and things and I have all the shops u can get expect the pet store but anyways it always says that on the other buildings COMING SOON on the signs and I have been playing the game for maybe four months now and no UPDATE has happened I really do love this game but please please please improve this game could so much more popular if u would actually make happen what is promised because even though it makes me really mad sometimes I really do love playing it but just please fix what needs to be fixed and keep improving😔
