Holy Potatoes! A Weapon Shop?! reviews and comments

Funny ' Little ' game with massive allusions to well-known Franchises from the game/film area. You're a Potato and take over your Grandfather's Forge. Piece by Piece, you expand your Forge, hire new Potatoes, upgrade your Equipment, level your Employees and explore new Weapons that you eventually sell in different Areas of the World. It is important to forge the ' more correct ' weapons, to provide them with ' more correct ' stats, in order to make more Money with them in Area X. At The end of the day, it is highly profitable, but it can also be done without ' Documentation '. I made the ' Mistake ' and went the Documentation route. This means that I recorded in 90s Fashion the Needs of my Clients and finally worked them off. A certain Routine and Repetivity comes in very quickly. This Means: Collect mats buy-/minerals-> Craften-> Craften-> Sell-> start all over again depending on the Mats/minerals. The Only Variety is provided By heroes who occasionally show up and claim your Craftsmanship, or that your Employees need a little Vacation. So: Jepp, it's going to be monotonous. And no, it's not a Game you can run ' by The way ' to farm without Interruption. Because the Potatoes only do what you tell them to do. If you Run it on the side, the End of the Month comes regularly and has made the Payment of salaries without a Profit. It's not a Game for everyone. Some like repetative Stuff, some don't. Fingers off when you buy a Manager'S Game and don't want to manage it. If changes are sufficient, Which are only emerging in Nuances, it is probably something more. The Beginning was great Fun for me. Over Time, the Fun Factor Ebbed a bit and the Impression is created that it is a Game that could also sell well on Smartphones. But... I just wanted to go through all The Dialogues and still don't have it all. x)

I started the game and had fun with it, but now it crashes at ALL! I try to load my score - & gt; crash I'm trying to open an ingame event - & gt; crash Collect income from sold weapons - & gt; crash In addition, various Abstrze just so in between. In addition, the game has managed to empty the battery of my iPhone 6+ in two hours from 100% to 20%. Unfortunately, the game is not playable in this state. I really wish that the problems will be fixed soon, because I found the gameplay really funny.

Very fun game to get the kairosoft feeling, but it is much clearer and easier to figure out. The only reason I gave 3 stars is im at the 2nd awards ceremony and the game keeps crashing. Its a game breaking bug for me. Works now! So Ive updated to 5 stars. I recommend this game to all kairosoft fans :) Hey Aki, thank you for your kind words and we are sorry to hear your game keeps crashing. We just want to let you know that the recent update we rolled out has fixed the crashing issue and you should be able to successfully load your games. Do let us know if the update has helped and we apologize for the inconvenience caused by the game crashing bug.

It's a fun game but there's a bug with the objectives. I moved from shop 2 to shop 3, but the objective that I have now is 'Get 2 heroes max level in Hillbilly Hollow'. But you only have Hillbilly Hollow in shop 2 and I can't go back to shop 2. So I'm stuck with this objective. Please fix this. Hey Cr3PyYt, we understand your frustration on the letterboxing of the iPhone version when played on an iPad. We have an iPad version of the game which is full screen. The only issue is that the bundle for the app is not live yet as we have run into some complications, but it should be live in the next 1 or 2 days. This means that you will be able to download the iPad version for free and you can play the game in full screen.
