I don't want to go to the moon in AdVenture Capitalist
AdVenture Capitalist has been a fun time waster for me over the past few weeks. Something about watching those bars scroll and the numbers go up..
.. Whoops. I'm back. Got to thinking about it and had to take a look at my current earnings.
If you've been playing the game for a bit now, you probably got just as excited as I did about the Space Race update. And you probably either love it or hate it.
I hate it.
You would think that adding another layer of number-watching to a game where you already just spend all your time watching numbers would be a welcome addition. I did too! But at the moment it just feels out of place in comparison to the normal money hoarding.
I would like to point the finger at the Mega-bux conversion, but the reality is the numbers on the moon just feel like a chore to grind up. It's hard to feel excited for those tiny upgrades to my oxygen bars or cheese production when it takes so long to get to them. It feels like a grind that is not only going uphill, but at a nearly 90 degree angle.
Hyper Hippo have done a great job making AdVenture Capitalist into an engaging idle game (is that an oxymoron?), but the moon phase definitely needs some tweaking to have a more similar flow to the Earth phase. Show me some reward before you ask me to put forth this much effort into an idle game.
Here's to hoping it gets just that in the next patch, I really don't want to have to go back to Clicker Heroes for my idle fix.
