It's out in the us already. First impressions, basically it takes a few of the guys from serenity and a few other con stars and makes a game around collecting fans and building a con. The show is basically a exaggerated take on Alan tudyk and Nathan fillion hanging out at cons because of serenity. Then throw in Nolan north(Nathan drake from uncharted) and some other slightly famous people and you have the show.

Im sure you played a "cafe game" at some point on mobile, this kind of follows that formula but instead as another poster has said its all about running a comic con. Its bright and colourfully im not sure if you will play it for long mind you if you not into "cafe games" and like them will require to invest some time into playing con man before it opens up

Enjoying this one at least in the short term. Already muted it as the audio gets pretty repetitive. Anyone know how to launch the special moves in the fights?

So weirdly enough i just started it up and played it for a few hours straight... uhm.

Graphics:

Are pretty good. I feel like some more depth/shadows could be added to most objects cause the look a bit plain (like ambient occlusion would be off on a PC). Overall though I can't really complain. There is nothing wowing me but all elements are very clearly distinguishable the art is funny and nice looking: Above average for me.

3.6/5

Sound:

Most voices are one-voice-file-voices so they repeat themselves over and over (especially the staff) and for a game that you are supposed to play the voice sounds especially just really get on my nerves. Don't get me wrong, the ones that are there ar good and I like the music etc. But there needs to be way more variety!

2.4/5

Gameplay

Basically you build some booths to seek stuff and they produce a bubble which you need to click on to collect the resources (money/XP) you level up by XP and then unlock more staff/booths/decoration etc. Which you can purchase for ingame money.
There are also events like emptying a garbage bin, cleaning the toilet, escorting a vip and chasing nudy Judy (yup!). They repeat themselves and there are 2 more (click on a specific guy in a crowd and find some pills that are scattered around the screen).
You'r people are always happy, except if some of those events (they need to get cleared in a matter of a few minutes each time) get out of hand but the happiness is never an issue so it's not a difficult game at all.
There is also rudimentary combat in there but i won't go into detail as it is basically just a mini game inside the game with no tactic what so ever.
Overall the gameplay is very limited. You need to grind XP and money to get more stuff you can build and to purchase this stuff or enlarge the territory you can build on. That's basically it. Not much to do right?

3/5

Payment model

No Stamina! Yay! No Ads! Double yay!
Also everything you can acquire in the store you can get by just playing the games, it is all random, occasional drops. Though the rate at which you require is pretty slow. No monthly package, which I really like a lot normally, so I am sad that it is not in here.
Most of the stuff you can buy are consumables so yeah. I don't do that.

3.5/5

Conclusion

Well that's a difficult one. If you are just looking at what is offered... it's not much and most people that already do play a lot of those games would probably turn away immediately. But I don't have many experiences with those games and I like the overall presentation and package. It requires a huge amount of time though to progress so there is that. You do hear the same line of dialogues and do the same events over and over again. There is also a certain lack of polish and lack of detail (some minor bugs and some things that could have been done a little better) but nothing major. The overall package just kind of got me but the more I play (lvl 13 atm) the less fun I have as there just is way too less variety. I guess I will watchlist this and see what content is added in future updates. Check it out, it's free.

3.2/5

You need to fill up the meter in the middle then drag from the meter on the hero you want to use it with and then from that particular hero on an enemy.

Thanks! I figured I was missing something pretty simple.
