Be the Merchant of your very own empire! Quest, Craft, Profit, Upgrade!

As the Merchant, you are the commander of your own domain!

Blending together traditional RPG systems, tycoon mechanics, and a fantasy overworld, Merchant aims to reimagine the traditional mobile RPG. In Merchant, players take the role of a shopkeeper who must manage a team of Heroes and Crafters. Heroes are sent out on quests in order to fight enemies and gather materials. Crafters then use those materials to create weapons and armor. As the shopkeeper, players must balance their micro-economies between selling items for gold and crafting items to better ensure success for the Heroes.

I'm enjoying it, but please please


... revamp the sound system so it doesn't kill my music every time i open the app. Also, some kind of guidance on the equipment, bosses, rare bosses, and skills/rounds? would be nice. If i didn't look it up extensively, i would have been lost and long gone from the game.
I was also wondering about the drop rates from rare bosses. I can get two Terros fangs for every one Ceros horn that drops, and both are blue, and should technically have similar drop rates?
Enchanting seems a bit useless, it's expensive, and the success rates are too low.
Obviously the game grabbed me enough to merrit extensive research i put into it so i could get anywhere... that's why 4 stars.

Get this game.


It’s fun, easy, and addictive. For such a straight forward simple game it’s got just enough depth to keep you interested. I like the idea of being a greedy shopkeeper who sends of humble hero’s to gather supplies for your needs. Go peons, fetch me my s**t.
Anyways I would love to give this game 5 stars hands down... it it wasn’t for one thing. There have been age-old bugs in the game that haven’t been fixed in over a year. Also, simple intuitive game features such as changing hero orders or even there name have yet to be added. I honestly feel like support for this game has died out.
It’s a shame too because this game can be 10x better that it already is.

Small issue...


Please don’t take this the wrong way I love this game it is awesome it is epic end it is hilariously fun when I get to create items that my friends have not come across yet but on the iPad I cannot watch videos anymore and the other issue I have is that if I decide to go to a different device I have to start all over from scratch this game is awesome but it is a major pain to have to start over
