Brilliant and important game

I absolutely love this game. It’s fun figuring out how each new system works as they become available, and it also remarkably illuminating in how it allows you to experience what exponential growth feels like.

The only quibble I have is that it would be useful if there was an option that would allow game time to pass while the app is in the background, because there are times when you want to leave it running while you wait for the next thing to happen. I know the app can’t run in the background on iOS, but I imagine that when it’s re-opened it could simulate the time that passed while you were away.

Great game, worth every penny

Saw this game for the last month or so and was quite apprehensive about buying it, let’s face it, it looks rubbish, but boy was a wrong, the simplistic html style layout actually makes it good, very satisfying to play, couldn’t put it down for hours, perfect for playing on the train or bus, but don’t play before bed because you might end up staying up till 5!

Can’t hold enter like PC version

On the OC you can click a button then hold enter to rapid select, without that feature you end up pressing buttons hundreds of times. I quickly sacked off the mobile app and completed it in the computer in much less time. It also meant I could leave it running in the background so less hassle again.

I failed to complete the app as it was annoying but I’ve completed the PC version more than 10 times!
