Customer Reviews

Great start, weird business model

Okay, this is a good one. Great sound and music, excellent pixel art, and an oddly engaging (if somewhat short) game concept. Plus, it's free, which is always nice, and offline-friendly which is GREAT. This leads me to the "weird business model" comment. Since this game was well done and not an IAP grab-fest, I wanted to buy something IAP as a "tip" for the devs. Imagine my surprise when I was told I couldn't. Why? I wasn't logged in. Yep, they turned down a paying customer. Guys, seriously: if someone wants to give you money...YOU LET THEM. Lose this stupid login requirement (and add some more content) and this is a 5-star game. So long as this is the first step, this could be the next Bitcoin Billionaire.

Not great.

So I thought it looked interesting enough to try. Turns out it's an idle game you're not supposed to idle. You earn nothing while the app is closed.
My other problems with it are the save function and unresponsive buttons. I attempted to register, it told me my Email was already being used. News to me. Gave me no option to reset via my email. The buttons are small, and often I have to tap them four or five times for it to register that I'm clicking it.
Overall, I like the idea, but too difficult to actually play.

One of the better clickers

So far I have really enjoyed my time with this game, it's not too complicated, has a real "objective" of sorts, and the microtransactions are not needed at all so long as you have a little patience. Some of the prices down the road for upgrades get a bit ludicrous, but honestly? If you really need to get them, just leave your device on and on charge as your EP builds up haha. So as I said, it's one of the better clickers so long as you have the time and patience to play it.
