Pretty fun game. I was able to play for a good hour or so, but then it crashed, and attempting to reopen it results in an immediate crash after it opens.

one issue I keep running into is that sometimes when I tap on options my focus gets jumped to the status bar and I have to try several times before I can activate options, does anyone else get this? hopefully the developer will chime in on this entry.

I am also having the problem where the game crashes on me. I tried deleting and reinstalling but the game crashed after awhile. I am using an Iphone 6 running IOS 9.3. I like this game but I wish there were some sound effects, I think it would enhance the game play.

I downloaded this game just this morning, and I have to say, it's quite good, I mean for a game with no inapt purchases and no ads, even the price is very good, as usually a game like this would either be flooded with adverts and inapt purchases, or just simply cost a lot in the first place.
As for the crashing issue, I also had that, and after restarting my phone, the issue is still there, I can't play this game quite simply until the update is released to fix this issue, as the game crashes constantly before I could even do one gesture to explore the screen.
However, it's definitely a good game, once this issue is fixed I'd say go buy it if you like games like this.

the game crashed on me only one time when I was trying to create something. Ios 9.3 on an iphone 4s

Submitted by Nolly on Friday, March 25, 2016

I've noticed that the games I've played with timers or games that constantly need to refresh every few seconds causes the focus to jump around the screen.

Clearly I am more lucky than anyone else here because my game hasn't crashed ... yet, and I'm at level 3. In my opinion, the game takes too long for things to get done though, even when you compare it to games like A Dark Room.

Reposting here from the other thread:

When VoiceOver is on, the Fight button stays selected briefly after the victory or defeat message pops up. If you tap fast enough, you will tap the Fight button again after combat has ended, which is never supposed to happen and can cause you to have negative defense, which causes the crash the next time you fight.

I will submit a fix to Apple, and hopefully the update will be ready in a few days. Until then, it still should be possible to avoid the crash and finish the game (after redownloading) if you follow these instructions very carefully:


Thank you for all of your help in this process; I couldn't have done it without you!

Beat the game in a few hours last night without too much difficulty. The game only takes some time to get anything done in the very beginning, once you get some tracktion though it becomes lightening fast paced.

Submitted by jsenter on Monday, March 28, 2016

The update is live! I really hope the game will be completely playable now, but if you have any more trouble please let me know. If your game is currently crashing, you will need to delete and redownload to clear your save file.

If you are so inclined, would you please leave a review in the App Store? Reviews are hidden after every new update, and positive reviews can have a big impact on the success of the game.

I cannot begin to thank this community enough. Not only did you help me fix the bug quickly, but you also helped my game reach the top charts and have exponentially more downloads than before! This has given me hope where there was none.

I will remember the rest of your feedback as I plan more extensive updates in the future. Meanwhile, I'm working on a new text-based strategy game, this time about exploring a dream world, that should be ready near the end of this year!

I would like to wish you the best of luck! I'm very happy about how successful the game has become. I'm looking forward to your upcoming app. It sounds like a fun and interesting new game.

Submitted by Nolly on Tuesday, March 29, 2016

Has anyone figured out what to type in as your answer? I didn't see anything in the text at the end of the game, and the question only has three question marks.

First of all, I want to say that I love this game, and I'd like to thank the developer for creating such a fun, accessible game. Unfortunately, there is still one problem that, at least for myself and one of my friends, seriously detracts from the game's fun factor. I don't know if this is something in the developer's control, or if it's an IOS issue, but nearly every time I double-tap on anything in the game, focus is moved to the status bar. Even when this doesn't happen, I don't always end up getting the option I *thought* I was tapping on. For example, if I want to do something in the creater's academy, it will often select my capital city or crystal fortress instead. So, I guess I'm saying that in general, there are some major focusing issues. I really hope it will be possible for them to be fixed, and if anyone knows of ways to prevent, or even just reduce the focus jumping to the status bar thing, I would really, really appreciate it.

Resources are updated every four seconds causing the screen to refresh, so try tapping something between refreshes for best results.

As far as clicking something entirely different from what you chose, this happens when what you want isn't visible on the screen because there are multiple pages of things you built. To make it visible bring your first location into focus, then use three fingers and swipe upward near the bottom just above the home button. This will cause the area with what you built focus on a page that is lower down on the screen. After you see the page you need, you can physically try to find what you want and click it. This doesn't perfectly fix the issue but it is something that a lot of apps have issues with, including the IOS app to watch videos, where you must bring what you want to watch into focus using the page swiping gesture to click anything not on the first page. Another alternative is to not build more than three or four things until you are far into the game, as there will be only one page and it won't click something you didn't want.

It honestly in my opinion is a Voice Over issue that Apple created awhile back. I don't recall if it started in IOS 8 or 9, but focusing issues happen all the time now in a lot of apps that Apple themselves create, including the App store and ITunes store. I know I didn't have this issue in IOS 7 and I hate the fact I ever upgraded to 8 and eventually 9.

Thank you for the suggestions; I just need to figure out how to be sure I'll select something between refreshes. I agree with you about IOs 7 being much better; that's the first version I ever used, and if I could do things over, I would have just stayed with it for these past 2 years. I love the Alex voice, but he's not worth all the frustration that's been around since ios 8 came out.

Submitted by Nolly on Sunday, April 3, 2016

Using the split tap gesture can also increase the chance you activate what you intended to click.

So I'm new at this game. I created a new world, how ever I don't know what to do from here. I have energy but no attack and defense. There is a create button but I dunno if I tap that or what. And the screen are slightly layered so sometimes it is a bit odd. Thanks all.

Submitted by Igna Triay on Saturday, April 9, 2016

Tap the create button, a list of things will appear that you can create. A warning though, when creating things, try not to create more than four or five things at the start if you want to stack up resources. If you create more then five, a hostile world will be discovered, meaning that you are open to attack.

I bought this game today only and it is still crashing. now I restarted my phone but still it is not loading. I think that I have to remove and reinstall it. so bug is not fixed. game is fantastic, but my advise to people who want to buy please wait till bug is not fixed. btw I am using 5s with latest ios "9.3.1"

Submitted by jsenter on Tuesday, April 12, 2016

ashish, I'm sorry to hear that! I fixed the bug that was causing the crash for most people but this must be a new one. Is there anything you can tell me about how far you had progressed in the game or what you were doing before the crash? There is a known bug that can cause this to happen if you exit the game immediately after the final campaign battle.

hi, I was in the game in the third level. and just won a battle. I was not in negative, and it crashed. then I downloaded it again and completed the campaign without crash. then I again started the game and it again crashed. the bigger problem here is that if the game crashes it no longer starts again, we have to uninstall it and download again. please try to fix it.

Submitted by ashish on Friday, April 15, 2016

hi, the app no longer crashed after the first time. and if and when you release any game I will first to buy it. thanks for a great game.

Submitted by DMNagel on Sunday, July 24, 2016

I am using an iPhone 6 Plus and the game is good. However, the game crashes right after I defeat Z. This means that I can only beat Z 4/5 times. I am running iOS 9.3.3.

OK so about this game, I’ve got some money left from the iTunes card I Purchased. I’ve got enough money to buy credits for my virtual baby in the My baby sim 2 Game, because I have to call the ambulance for him. After I get the credits I should have enough money to also get the nano Empire game. However my question is, is it worth purchasing? I want to make sure this is a game that I will not regret buying after I get it.

Submitted by Kwork on Monday, August 12, 2019

I've finished the game a few times now. I think the only option I don't get is the "secret" option in the menu. Does anyone have any clue what that is, how to activate it, and what it does when activated? Thanks, and what a fun game.
Just for fun, I'm trying an experiment. It seems that, if only the Creators Academy is created, no hostile world ever shows up, and energy can accumulate. I'm seeing how hi I can get it to go before it either maxs out, or a hostile world is discovered. So far I'm over 83 million energy. LOL!
Seriously though, I am interested in whether the "secret" option in the menu is even worth wondering about. Thanks.

Haven't played this game for ages, but when I asked the author about it he said that it would probably be a combined effort to work out how to unlock it, you could always just email and ask him, seeing as the game is so old now hopefully he might tell you.

Submitted by Lindsay Cowell on Monday, June 1, 2020

Can anyone tell me how to keep my energy defence and attack up, I find they are going down to really quite low levels, and I seem to get the same amount of defence from my neighbours, which doesn’t help with the campaigns?
