Have not faced any problems till now. One can lean a lot if I want to. Initially I built the city. But realised my mistake n started fresh. Now have a controlled development. My one learning is make your foundation strong and nothing will hamper your progress. Play for fun lots so small challenges to overcome can be overcome in sec or through proper planning. Join now and build your dream colonies


Please read

Hi, I have played this game for quite some time now, the game need to be more smooth. The graphics and interface should be more vivid and easy. The tutorial/guide should be more informative, for example When the game was guiding to build the road for very first time, I couldn't understand easily although it is easy once you notice how to build a road and others found it difficult as per reviews.
The game is very nice. Devs need to do a lot of work to improve graphics and gameplay.

Games from indie developers seem to work better than this. Can't complete the tutorial because I can't build a road between the house?and the market place.
