Lack of explanation, Facebook required

This game is not good:

- The basic gameloop is not explained well: You have to replace existing and developed buildings with new ones. This provides you with a currency (hearts) which raises the gold income by the buildings. It is unclear which building is the best; it is unclear on which factors the amount of replacement heart currency depends. It is unclear why some replacement buildings are allowed and some others not.
- Facebook login is required to gain access to some important functionalities like friends, presents, income multipliers.
- Sometime you can activate a balloon event: After watching an ad you have 20 seconds to collect gold from your buildings which may or may not result in additional rewards. It is unclear how to influence the outcome.
- You have a kind of global experience level. It is unclear how to gain experience and it is unclear what the new experience levels are providing

I find that there is not much to do on a regular bases. Do not recommend. 3/5

This as typed in a hurry so let me elaborate:

- there is literally nothing to do once your existing building so auto collect more resources. Only things you need to do is occasionally collect those resources, watch an and to keep double resource production running, or click on a an event ballon and then swipe frantically to get bit of bonus money.
- progression is done in a way, that you replace your building with new ones, that you randomly get from chests (briefcases) which you get at random (?) or for I game money.
- so you are waiting and basically just waiting. Even nonstop knight or war tortoise have more stuff for you to do.
- visually and from the sounds the game is really well done, but the gameplay is super boring and stale.

Maybe updates will fix that. 2/5 for now. So not download unless you are really bored.

This game doesn't seem to hold my attention as much as their prior one (Farm Away). Which isn't saying much.

But I will say one unique feature of this game that I haven't run into before is that there is an icon on the screen that if you click it will open up their farming game, almost tying the two apps into one... Of course I unfortunately keep accidentally hitting it and exiting the city building game...doh!
