I'm a sucker for AR, so I took the plunge and updated. Now for those of you holding out, if you planned on playing this app on your phone or tablet, worry not, you are missing out on absolutely nothing. If you have an Apple Watch on the other hand, this could be worth looking into, though I can't confirm as I don't own one myself. The thing about this particular idler is that it is simplified and streamlined to the most absolute basics of an idler. You have a building in front of you, after it's collected enough gold to level up you click on it and it goes up a level. Tapping on the screen will not give you currency or any bonuses, and the buildings are the only thing you level up. Level up the building enough and you can build another one next to it(Building a new one has a timer that can't be sped up, I'm waiting for six hours for my next building to finish). This continues on and is all there is to it. So what this app appears to be going for with its simplicity is the first cute little idler for your Apple watch with actual graphics. You will not enjoy this if you love idlers/clickers/tappers/incrementals on your phone or tablet, it manages to take an already simple genre and make it too simple to keep any interest.

Hi guys,

We're a little unusual dev as we focus on Apple Watch. Our target platform for Micropolis is watchOS 4, which requires iOS 11 to run. Sorry for the inconvenience if you're running on previous OS versions.

If you do have an Apple Watch please check the game. Visuals here: https://youtu.be/Wq8WQPE1UZU
