Totally Addicted!

I am hopelessly addicted to this game! I appreciate that it is relatively easy to earn the premium currency so that you don't need to spend real money to get ahead, even though I have, (I really wanted a pet)!

Please, please, please finish the game!!!!!

Oh Seabeard

I remember when I first got my phone and I was searching everywhere for a similar game like Animal Crossing. I finally came across Seabeard and it was marvelous and fun,,, until I noticed how hard it was to get any sort of currency.
The economy of the game is ridiculous and it hurts me to see such a good game have a realllllllly bad currency system. The two main sets of currency are so hard to come by and I’m just too broke to invest in games with real money.
And then the size of the bag!!!!!! Don’t even get me started on that!!!!!!! UGH it’s TOO small!!!! And guess what! To upgrade it you gotta use the really hard to come by in game currency!!! And to even progress to do anything you need items and lots of currency (sorry for the consistent usage of “currency” I cannot remember what the in game money was called whatsoever)
However the story and the style of the game is friendly and has a really good feel to it. The story isn’t too excessive and deep but enough to get you to remember it and enjoy. The style is similar to Animal Crossing but has a nice piratey-shapey look. Super cute NPCs and nice (but expensive) clothing for your character in game.
Overall a really good concept, I wish the devs would really invest their time into this lovely game and make it playable but they barely updated it to be able to play on it with the new iOS.
So until then I don’t think I could pick this game up again regrettably.

TLDR; bad economy, small bag, hard to progress but overall good happy game to play.
