16bit Trader reviews and comments

It's pretty, easy to access, both for the grip and the purchase of the game itself. But it doesn't catch up. On the bottom, it's a real management game with a hint of adventure. On the form, it is rather a great adventure than thinking of managing anything. The number of diamonds found thanks to a card is never the same (including thanks to the card obtained in the tutorial of the beginning of the game) we can not know how many guys work for us. They have to be counted on hiring. The travel prices are too high and do not make the gameplay enjoyable. Etc... In short, the management in this game lacks homogeneity, cohesion and balance, and therefore chilli. If the developers have the courage to release a new one, I hope they will linger on it. Good hearing.

"16bit Trader" is a very rudimentary Trading Simulation. In a pseudo-medieval World, we have a Problem: Our very successful Father is dead. So we follow in his Footsteps and also want to become a successful Trader and make 1Million. Why a Million? Why not? Is a nice Number. On the fairly clear Overview Map we can travel from an unreal Place to an unreal Place, which costs gold each time, plus if necessary Bridge Customs. In the small Villages we can trade a few Things like Food or clothes and ... Drive away again. In the few Cities, we can also trade, acquire Employees and Vehicles, or accept Quests. These usually exist: Drive me to x, or bring the Message to y or get me out of x ne bottle something and bring it back to y. Creative is different. That was essentially already the Case. Achja: In Caves we can still find Diamonds and at least the Prices of only 10 Commercial Goods are dynamic. In Summary, all the Gameplay is just simple Grinding, which is repeatedly divalved to us by far too frequent Raids by Bandits. This Complexity cripple Is only very short, at most 16 Minutes, if at all. The cuddly but high-quality Graphics and the pseudo-middle-aged Gedudel in the Background do not exactly contribute to the Impression of having a high-quality Game in front of them. Even the grossly, syntactically extremely questionable, German Translation attempt does not exactly lift the Mood. Those who like Trading Simulations will find better ones pretty much everywhere. Even the great Classics were far more complex and intelligent than this Baby porridge.
