Fun to play but the time scale needs work.
I don't know much about how they scale the times for new customers or floor items, but some items you can sell take only 2 minutes to get a new offer, while some take too long (2 hours or longer) I like the customer refresh rate of 1 every 5 minutes. That keeps you in the game longer because you get 12 customers an hour. The problem is, that those huge purchases leave you with little money to negotiate with, and that means for the items you want to sell for big $$$ can take 2 or more hours to get an offer, and the offers are usually way low or just over what you paid. So my question is what is the point of buying a value on the item if you can't list it at a set price? You quickly find yourself with little money to play with while waiting for offers on items which will probably be well below value and in the mean time you can't buy anything new from customers making the great idea of 12 customers an hour basically meaningless unless you want to pay the app company for more pawn bucks. This game would be perfect if you could haggle a sale price as well as haggle a buy price and if auctions were free. I think the auctions are one of the most fun parts of this game but they cost 2 pawn chips each. Always loan an item if they want too much for the item they are selling.
Pretty good game
Let me say first and foremost that this game is a lot of fun! I'm crazy about it, and I love pawn store sims.. However this game needs major tweeks. There is not a whole lot of content.. There is not much of an endgame seeing as how there's only a few upgrades you can give your shop and they don't do very much. On top of that half of the upgrades are for the premium currency. The biggest complaint that I have about this game is that the waiting times for everything in it are far far too long. I only check the game once every hour or so just to check the minor things that happened while gone. Should they cut the wait times for everything in half, this game would have 4 stars. With more content, 5 stars easily.
Decent App, But Needs Improvement
I've been playing this app for a couple weeks and it's a decent game compared to the rest of "pawn shop" games, however it could use some improvement. The over all concept is good, but most of the time after you buy something and list it, you go a long time before you get offered anything more than you paid for an item. If you use the option to see how much it's worth before buying the item, you're lucky if you make any profit. The bidding scale slider is very hard to use with any precise number. It takes forever to get an even number, so I usually just get close and leave it at that. Good app that definitely needs improvement.
