Fun, but lacks substance

I really recommend trying the lite version of the game first. I have had the game for a while, however, and this is what I think. It took me some time to get into it but here are some the pros and cons I've noticed in the game below.

-Cute retro pixel chibi-like graphics.
-No in-app purchases
-Large variety of buildings etc. to build
-Set in an interesting old Japanese era
-If you love building towns/villages especially if you like Japan/Japan's culture you'll like this
-Get to build things wherever* you want
-People in the game do their own thing
-Maps are large

-Wish the maps (average/mountain/seaside) looked more different (they are very similar)
-There could have been much more interaction with your villagers
-Warriors do not fight anything
-It is hard to earn money/really easy to get in the negative numbers
-Research and buildings are costly, particularly the further you get in the game
-Difficult to move buildings and have to remove buildings before placing new ones, which is annoying
-Paths are pricey and nature too
-Not much to do compared to other Kairosoft games
-Events are few such as travelers visiting your village, and it's not exciting when they do visit
-Slow progression
-Takes a while to figure out crafts/combos
-The in-game territory map is basically useless in my opinion

Favorite from my favorite

Kairosoft has been my favorite since their first iPhone game, game dev. This is my favorite game from them. I just honestly love the period, which draws me into the game even more. You can customize one character and keep track of them as the city grows and expands. People "rank up". It's just kairosoft at their finest!

Still the one of my favourite games ever!

Simple, basic, straightforward, cute!
