Disappointed - Advice Needed
I saw this game on the main page and it looked really cute, but I don't just buy things for the heck of it, even if they're cheap, so I tried the demo. It seemed fun enough, so then I bought it.
My enjoyment ran off almost immediately after buying it. I think the premise of the game is interesting, the art is cute, and overall it seems like it should be fun, but I keep finding myself frustrated.
I've been doing quests as I get them, but they seem to be getting harder faster than my tenants get powerful. I figured maybe I was moving ahead too quickly, but I don't know what else to do. If I'm not questing, I'll just get randomly attacked by increasingly harder enemies that only ever give me around five gold.
How do you actually progress in this game? The quests are getting too hard, and I can't imagine items being the solution, because if I'm not doing quests, I'm not getting money. My tenants don't seem to want to pay rents high enough to ever actually afford anything other than an Orange Desk.
How are you actually supposed to fight? Between the character collision and the spike damage that comes from magi and stuff, I find I'm fighting more with my tenants standing in stupid positions than I am fighting the enemy. I know my tank, my centaur, and my elemental couple can all hit a guy at the same time, but the stupid elemental husband likes attacking from his max range, leaving his wife to stand around like an idiot.
How does happiness actually work? Most of my tenants are happy, but I'm having issues with my conflicting types. I guess you're just not supposed to have both at all? What baffles me though, is that my elementals are perfectly happy, it's only the abyssal that will refuse to be happy no matter how much I pamper them.
Am I supposed to just cycle tenants and evict old ones as I get new monster types? That would really suck. I went into this game thinking it was half-sim half-tower defense, not just a tower defense with unique presentation. I don't have the heart to evict anyone. The only tenant I've lost was a Cheepy, and it was because they wanted to escape their debt.
I really hope someone can help, because right now I'm really disappointed in this game. I feel like I'm always just barely succeeding, with a gap that's getting smaller every time.
