Feedback from the experts

Abiyasa Suhardi: A very good management/strategy game with very interesting concepts. It contains good elements such as resources gathering and interconnections with supporting functionalities such as game pause, save/load, or ‘cheat’ for fast-forward. Simple graphics but well-thought game design. The game has quite high learning curves since there are good complex mechanics. Maybe a tutorial, or start the game with a smaller level and introduce the concept slowly/gradually could help. Once you get it, it’s hard to stop playing :-)

Lee Reilly: Nice idea. I definitely would have benefited from more instructions...
