"David: A lot of developers are entering into freemium models, but we decided not to. Were going into flat rate gaming: Pay once and play as long as you want to because we believe a gamer doesnt want to pay for every single step in a game. He or she should enjoy the gameplay, the story and have fun while playing, not paying."

Ratings and Reviews
Loved the computer version of this game! Unfortunately, the iPad version lacks several of the more in depth features available in the computer version. It has also proven to be very buggy as buttons disappear randomly and such. I'm hoping that more will be added at some point and that stability will be improved as time passes, as this was once a favorite game of mine and I'd love to get back into it again. Thanks for the hard work!
Lemonade Stand for history nerds
Ideal combination of engagement and mindless relaxation. Very calm and nerdy.
Thanks for fixing the crash bug, I am finding this to be a very stable game now. I have put some hours into it, trying to see if it gets more interesting with time, but I feel this is a very bland game. There is no tension during play, there is no direct interaction with the computer opponents, there is little sensation of town growth, the difficulty is too easy with no option of making it harder, the random events are too few and uninteresting, the quests are uninspiring, and there is just not much depth. I enjoy the trading genre, and really wanted to like this game, but for me it falls flat.
