Fun, but ridiculously hard to progress


I enjoy this game, but I have so much frustration with it due to its difficulty to progress and most of all the minuscule inventory. I’d be okay with this detail if it weren’t 50 pearls to upgrade inventory every time (and pearls aren’t that easy to come by), or do any sort of upgrade such as leveling up fish and food stalls to sell more items at once, making it difficult to make money fast enough. Currently I FINALLY have everything I need to build Seabeard manor, but now I discover it’s 4,000 coins to do so and I only have half that. It’s difficult to complete tasks with what little storage I have considering the materials I need are tying up so much of it and clothing items are part of my inventory, which by the way I am being told to buy every day in order to complete tasks and earn exp. this not only costs me money which sets my wallet back, but it creates even less inventory space and I don’t have a merchant to sell any of it. Why is wardrobe even part of my inventory and not it’s own inventory? And why is there no long term storage system such as a cabinet in one of my crew houses that I can store things I don’t need all the time such as clothes and building materials? If these issues were remedied and I could earn cash a small bit faster, this game would skyrocket to one of my favorites. Right now I’m playing it out of determination and, admittedly because it is pretty fun. But I am getting tired of it quickly.

Great fun with a little patience


I was looking for a game to scratch that Animal Crossing sort of itch and I was pleasantly surprised by when I found Seabeard. The game has a surprising amount of depth and multiple tasks to use for income (my go-to is fishing) and a main story quest that consistently introduces new mechanics to keep the game feeling fresh. Although it relies heavily on wait timers and microcurrency you're able to earn both coins and pearls in-game so you can make progress without spending real money, especially when you collect daily rewards. The aesthetic is pleasant, has a variety of things to do and feels like a polished experience. Overall whenever I have a few minutes I find myself opening this app to do short quests, play a few mini games, and groom the appearance of my little island. If you have a little bit of patience or don't mind spending a few extra dollars then this title is worth picking up.
