I don't really enjoy being negative in posts but I can safely say that you're fine without this game Bronxsta. It's your typical buy buildings with coins and gems and complete missions by tapping on objectives and using energy. I was a little disappointed as Hothead have published/developed some games I really enjoyed such as Deathspank, Penny Arcarde ORSTPOD and Swarm.

It's not a bad game if you're expecting the Facebook game style gameplay but I can't imagine that's what you're hoping for

Yup. I was really hoping for something more. I have Boom beach if I want to play a "town" building game. Deleted.

Thanks for the impressions. Those screenshots made me think it would be like Klei's Invisible Inc. or something. At least the art style looks great

Yeah, unfortunately. Though don't get me wrong - it's actually one of the more interesting games of this style. Slightly more involving gameplay and the theme, as you've seen, is more attractive. I'll probably play it for a couple of days and see if I want to keep it, though I generally decide not to once it gets grindy.

I was kind of hoping for a stealth adventure as Bronxsta suggested. I think my views on the game are more clouded by disappointment that it didn't play how I hoped than rather than the game actually being bad. I'll try to leave impressions later.

Edit: Well it's gone from my iPad. Had the server go down a few times when trying to do missions, loss of connection from the internet which reloaded old saves so had to redo certain parts and it crashed a couple of times too. Not to mention it got grindy very quicky, there's no way you could get everything done in the missions by the third storyline event so you're either struggling along getting 1 star each level or spending real money. Ah well!
