This game was really fun up until I got completely blocked from all progress so don’t make the same mistake.

When I went into stage 2 (released the hypnodrones) it removes the Trust counter from your interface, essentially making it impossible to improve your computing power or memory. That was fine because I had enough to continue the game... but then I accidentally clicked Xavier Reinitialization in the upgrade menu. Thus, my processors and memory are at zero and I cannot make more, making it impossible to generate ops outside of quantum computing (which is not nearly enough to get the 45,000 for upgrades and 16,000 PER yomi strategic tournament).

All in all, this game would be a lot MORE fun if I could play the rest of it. Devs, please issue a fix for this.

I don't really write reviews but...


Okay first, hands down, this is a great game. Very simple to understand and a well amount of thought put into it. If you're the type of person to like interactive games, this isn't what you're looking for. This game is more like, "I'm bored and want to put my brain to work". It involves staring at your phone for a couple minutes before you can move forward, but only when you get deeper in the game. For $2 I'm satisfied, but, it's more of a dollar game.. I'm not bummed though. Maybe if they added another possible mode (not involving clips.. maybe some color) and expand from there. This game truely sparked for me and I've had fun completing it.



People Frank gave you a game that will stand the test of time. Ten years of gaming under my belt should tell you all you need to know about the validity of my opinion. Growing up in the hood if something was good we would say, winner, winner chicken dinner. People trust me you have one h- LL of a tasty chicken dinner here. In all my years of gaming this is on of the best games I have played. In closing all I can say is Frank is one h- LL of a developer who deserves your support. He earned it with this game. Two bucks for this gem. Come on people your stealing from Frank and he's looking the other way so he can keep the price as low as possible.
