Amazing game !! But ....

This in its self is an absolute stunning games the idea and the graphic style is fantastic but I feel there’s a couple of things that would add a whole new drastic feel to the game and even could potentially make it the best game on this App Store and that is conflict between the different Races in the game and interaction for example between the orc warriors and the human warriors and would be soo fun to be able to build a orc castle and a human castle then have the orca try to seige it !!! And humans defend this would add a whole new feel to the game !! The weapons are even already implemented under vehicle already and this would slow you to have all out wars would be amazing !! Also think that the buildings should all use wood and materials to build as well as implementing stone as another material to build castle walls and that sort of stuff with then the people in the game having to mine . But even at the stage the game is at now it’s outstanding if your looking for a game we’re you can build your own worlds but that’s all it is at this time there’s no missions or things like having to deal with plagues or having the food go down with the amount of people you have this would make it extremely more playable as I’ve only just bourght the game a day ago and I’ve already started to get alittle board of it as there’s no clear aim or plan would love to hear from the developers thank you !

Those ideas are brilliant, Tommie653! We are currently adding more fun features to the game and may take these ideas onboard. Thank you for playing Pocket Build! :)

I love your game and its simple mechanics that make you wander why nobody has done them before. You took something done so many times and somehow made it unique by not focusing it too much on a battle or level based element. Despite this, I understand that a review with no criticism is pointless so my few thoughts are these. I think that you should be able to change the name of you world. When I got the game I spent all my time making the default “Pocket world” a great world and now my city is stuck being called “Pocket world”. I could be being ignorant though so tell me if there is a way that you can change your world name after creation. Also, the placement of value is odd, elaborate houses are free but grass is 15 wood. This is not really a problem though, just a query, and perhaps there is a good reason to it. One more thing, I think, even though your system for placing items are great, maybe you could make it so you could drag out a fence post, for example, to construct a fence as long as you want, or drag out a piece of land, in order to eliminate the rare issues that items like these have. Also, maybe a quick toolbar of commonly used items could be better. But these are all silly, and I think you game is probably my favourite game I have ever played on an iPad, great developing.

Hi :) I'm glad you like the game. I will look into the issues you have mentioned. Also you can create a new Pocket Town with a different name by creating a new world using the Populated template option.

No clue

I bought this game not really sure what to expect. I looked at the trailer, read reviews and then bought the game. It’s an amazing idea. I love the big open spaces and possibility to expand into something far larger then the imagination however I have no clue what I’m doing. Now you’re probably going to say “ there’s a tutorial which is easy to follow” well unfortunately I clicked off that and have no clue what I’m doing. Now If I place myself in the shoes of let’s say an illiterate Neanderthal then this game would appear to be an enigma inside of an enigma wrapped in some really puzzling yet dull brown wrapping paper. I’d like to interact with people and go to war however that’s my inner archaic lord speaking and I feel like that’s just to large of an update. Overall I’d just like to say the effort put in with the art style is noted and I specifically like the atmospheric audio however in order for me, a simple millennial to process something so large I’d need a video specifically detailing how far I could go so I could “imagine” however this would then cause me to get bored. It’s all a vicious cycle. It’s really a 5/5 because who am I to bash your hard work. The inner bitter and cynical me wants to express my discern but the joyful 23 year old wants to praise it. On a side note I’m not a millennial. 10/10
