Ever wanted to be Mayor? Ever wanted to run a town, develop the land, and see a metropolis grow? Well, look no further than Merge Town!, the newest title from Gram Games. The concept of the game is simple - you have a plot of land, and it’s your job to turn it into a town. Every so often, you’ll be gifted with a house. Each house can be merged with other houses of the same variety to form a bigger home. Every house built on the land will earn you money - the bigger the home, the more you will earn. The more you earn, the more houses you can purchase, and the more you can push the clock to develop faster. Use your spoils to discover new homes, and to expand into all new towns.
You have a singular goal: make your towns the best they can be. The bar at the top of the screen measures development - Merge buildings to earn XP and level up. Higher levels will unlock more space in your plot for you to develop, which will only allow you to develop your town to even further greatness. Once you develop into new towns, keep an eye on all your land, ensuring that you’re merging and developing to your full potential.
Merge, build, and develop your very own towns with Merge Town!

Watch ads to play.
I love those little zen games, the ones where you can just fidget with an app without worrying about timers or points or lives. This is set up to be one of them, but it quickly becomes nothing more than an ad-intensive experience.
You start off easy enough, get a crate every 10 seconds which gives you a house, which you merge with another house to get a slightly bigger house. Merge two slightly bigger houses to get even bigger house. That's pretty much the entirety of the game, but unless you really are willing to drop cash on the developers for this, you're going to hit a very real issue. Since the starting blocks never increase, each consecutively larger building takes twice as long to make as the previous. Forcing you to spend the in-game currency that your houses have been generating, or die of old age as exponential growth takes over. No problem so far, but opening the buy menu triggers an advert 50% of the time. Menu options should not be gated behind ads.
Ads to get bigger houses, ads to get a few 'free' houses, ads to increase the size of those houses, banner ads while you play. Ads while you change town. Ads when you open up the buy menu. Ads when you bring the game back to the foreground. This is more ad than game, and while I'm very tolerant of ads and the need for them in a free-to-play game, this title is over the top.
Fun and addicting!
I wasn’t really expecting much from this game. I though it was going to be like 2048 but with houses but it’s more like a cross between 2048 and a very simple city builder. I could see a second version of this game where you have to manage your city like in a Simcity game. The only annoying part of this game is the ads. There’s an un-reasonable amount of ads in my opinion, you can pay to remove them, which I would recommend as supporting developers of games like this is very important or if you don’t have any money or just don’t want to pay, airplane mode seems to stop most ads. Anyways 8.5/10 in my book!
Listen up devs
The game IS fun. I genuinely mean that, BUT, you should have more upgrades a somewhat less ads. Why do I have to buy level 2 house spawns? That should be an upgrade. Take note from other games like this: don't make me start all over with the same small house just to get ONE larger one, and repeat to combine it. That takes way too long.
