NEW UPDATE Yes thank you so much... Long overdue
Buying this game doesn't stop the IAP. Too many in app purchases and this game plays exactly like a freemium game would play. Really slow game play and the town management is mediocre at best
In-App Purchase Greed I used to love playing this game. Really neat city sim in a compact medium. I quit for a while after switching phones only to come back to a 'premium' version being available. "No ads", it said - and I thought "fair enough, gotta make a living somehow". I open the game and suddenly get met by a mechanic called 'prestige' and it's exactly the microtransaction scum it is in other titles. So bloody greedy, sigh. Ruined.
After many, many years, I'm done. I bought a license for this game many years ago, not long after it came out. It's had its ups and downs, but the reason I paid for it was so that I wouldn't be bothered by ads. I hate ads and I refuse to play any game that has them and now, Townsman has ads. True, they are for "special offers," but guess what? THEY ARE STILL ADS.
We need an update bring the military side?! You once earn the five stars but now? No , the following is my previous opinion : "You are a good people and thank you for the update This game is great like no other I downloaded on all devices I have And I am telling my friends about this addicting game to buy it You earn the five stars please one thing : Add some military actions And a problem that still exist and that is when opening the market the merchant tab restarted."
Maybe the best game on android. This is probably the best game on android. I don't know how it's over looked by the mobile gaming community the way it is. It's the most dynamic and well balanced game I've played on android. There are adds but, you can close them and they are small. I don't mind them because, unlike 98% of mobile games, these guys are not trying to rip you off. I would buy the sequel to this in a heartbeat or any new content/dlcs.
