Worth 2.5 stars I had the game on the Apple phone when it first came out and never had to spend money on it but it has now been tweaked to make sure the player does! It starts off on a nice learning curve but by level 6 onwards it starts to get really tricky and shortly after real money has to be spent as you don't have enough in-game money to do anything with!
Fun but resource hungry The game itself is quite fun, offers well-balanced progress and has cute graphics. However it's the only app I've ever had draining more battery than my screen. Also makes my phone heat up to the point of killing the entire app. Code is probably sloppy, there is no reason for a simple 2d game to be this demanding on resources.
I didn't expect to feel a bit responsible for something that only exists in a game. Let me start by saying this game starts right, by showing you what could be, not in context of gameplay, but in a single cutscene. The intro writing is solid and those few sentences were all I needed to get building this city of mine. After that, it's clear that microtransactions are optional, not because they shove the optional-ness in your face, but because they don't. In fact, it's nowhere to be seen at all unless you tap the second button from the right. No ads, either. Wow. Mechanically, this game is solid, but I would like to tell the devs something - use breadth-first search on your puzzles, because if you don't have tools and you get stuck, players are going to sulk. Finally, thanks, Chillingo, this is a great game for getting through the day.
Main menu is broken I can't see anything from the main menu, its all corrupted and I'm playing the game simply by randomly pressing the screen, but the game itself is really fun.
Fix bug please Sometimes, the buildings with the "!" won't unclick. I'm unable to get more men. Also, movie clips won't play after going through 1 time. Otherwise, fun game!
Lost saves Good game, but keeps wiping out my save every few days. As it is, sadly, it's pointless to continue
