I had been looking for a game like this for a while, and finally found it! Yeah, ten dollars was a bit compared to most other apps, but that's not why I gave four stars. I hadn't bought this game at the same time as other users, so I haven't had the same issue and haven't had to pay twice - however - because of the creator's initial mistake, I'll have to give one star short of a five-star rating, and if I get a repeat performance of what the others have had, I will certainly come back with a much more aggravated review. As it is...
This game is pretty good. I liked that the farming wasn't in real time like so many other games, so I don't have to waste a ridiculous amount of time waiting to make virtual profit.
A nice update would be a detailed instruction guide. I'm a little bit into the game, but am just a little confused at the significance of certain items like the starfish and butterflies. An instructional guide would very likely solve this problem for myself and other users who may not have fully understood the tutorial or in-game text.
People should just pass over this...
Ok, I am a big fan of Animal Crossing, and I was sitting on my bed 2 days ago, when I was thinking to myself about Animal Crossing. I thought, "Dang, they should make an Animal Crossing for tablets. That would make it on the charts BIG. Ooh! What if they already have?" So I grabbed my phone and searched Animal Crossing on the App Store. I saw guides and cheats for Animal Crossing but no game. I kept looking and found this game, Astro Ranch. I looked at the photos and read the captions and it looked pretty close to Animal Crossing. I got on, and my screen went black. I heard random noises floating out of my speakers. I waited for over an hour, seeing if it would stop and I would get to play a game. But nope. Negatory. No. I tried it for 3 days and nothing. I am very frustrated with the creators. I am glad I did not get the full version or I would have wasted 10 bucks. All Animal Crossing fans, and even people who aren't, will be strongly disappointed with this. If you want to save time in the day, I strongly recommend you pass over this one.
Should be five stars
When I first installed the app, I would have given it all five stars! This game is fun to play, has an interesting concept, and is quite unique! By far, this is my favorite game; however, there are way too many annoying flaws that reduced my rating to a mere two stars. First of all, I can only play for ten minutes before I have to wait a full 24 hours before getting to play again!!! I truly hate that. Sure, I only have the free version but I have yet to read a review that says the grass gets greener when purchased. I feel like I have to rush to do my daily tasks and I don't have a chance to explore the game as I would like. Most importantly, it crashes! All the time. Usually, I can't even start the game without patiently waiting through at least three crashes. This game has SuCh potential. But is so annoying to play. Please fix these flaws! I would pay for the app if I was promised that these flaws might go away!
