Update: I’m deleting this game. There are so many levels that you don’t get enough customers to win without boosters, and I’m tired of trying to remember which ones they are. It completely takes the fun and challenge out of the game.
What probably happened is, some marketing manager wanted to test whether customers will spend more if some levels are unwinnable. And they will, at first, probably because they didn’t realize that it wasn’t just difficult to win, but impossible. So this was done, probably over objections by the developers, who got into this because they wanted to make fun games. But what that person doesn’t realize is, people will figure it out and quit, and your little stats and charts won’t show that.
The current strategy treats customers as disposable- get every dollar you can from someone, until they realize the levels aren’t winnable without paying and they quit. Then, on to the next sucker.
There are a limited number of people willing to spend on a game. Alienate them, and they’re gone for good. What happens when you’ve worked through everyone willing to pay? Why, make Big Fish Farming Craze, of course! But people will already know you make scam games with unwinnable levels, so good luck with that 😑 I won’t be playing it.
Well done, fun game. However, there are too many levels you don’t even get enough customers to win. That’s ridiculous- winning a level should not require using boosts. I’m taking off 3 stars from this otherwise 5 star game for that- it’s a scam. When I run out of free boosts, I will stop playing- I’m willing to spend money on games, but not when it’s rigged so you MUST pay to advance.
The difficulty level is uneven, and you end up playing many levels and wasting lives on levels that are unwinnable without using boosts. Or, you may not be able to win until you buy a bunch of upgrades. Basically, the game would benefit from a smooth progression that allows you to upgrade smoothly. As it is, you play a bunch of easy to average levels, then you get to a place where you can’t win unless you play old levels over and over until you can buy several upgrades.
