This place was done on request by blaytn. If you have a place you want reviewed, feel free to PM me. I do not guarentee a raving review, nor do I promise one that makes your place sound horrible. I try and make it sound the way your place deserves (which is not necessarily the same as what you, the creator deserves) — you might have tried hard, I’m not going to say you didn’t, but if the place doesn’t show what I’m looking for, the mark will be down regardless of how many hours you spent on it.

This place is another tycoon. I’m not saying tycoons are bad, but they can get pretty dull when they all look almost EXACTLY the same… therefore I challenge anyone to make a tycoon game where you do not use conveyor belts that you upgrade, where you compete for land, customers, and profits, and you have high control over the game — creativity helps the player. Also, it would be a bonus if the tycoon enabled newcomers a chance at winning, or have 5 or 10 minute rounds.

This place is a gold tycoon. The gold is “made” and put on a conveyor belt, which is then transported across the belt, and it disappears on the other end. You can upgrade the quality of the gold, make more “producers”, and a few other things. It’s not a bad attempt.

In the server I was in, I did not detect any lag what-so-ever. I did not find any major bugs. However, it takes a long time to upgrade after you spend your few thousand, and so there is little you can do but write reviews in the mean time 😉

MARK BREAKDOWN

Scripting: 6/10. Acceptable level of scripting. I would mark higher except: more could’ve been done to make more effects or features.
Tools: n/a. No tools needed or used.
Building: 0/1. It’s not about the building, but there are also no special structures to admire.
General Enjoyment: 2/10. It’s really rather boring, because of the wait time. Otherwise it’s fine.
Originality: 0/10.
Creativity: 0/10.
Ease of Use: 9/10. It’s easy enough to use the buttons on the floor. The space is a bit cramped, but on the other hand, it reduces the time it takes to walk from one button to another.
Easy to Learn: n/a
Deals with Problems: 4/5. Appears to have had bugs (see title) and fixed them… however, there was the bug that if someone left, their door would remain as “person’s Factory” instead of the original state, “Touch to own factory”.
Deals with Lag: 10/10. No lag detected, yet a number of moving parts.
Penalty: -1 No goal or objective, and so is pointless.

Overall: 5.2/10. Not a bad score at all. In other words, this place is really good, but it has few features in which to go wrong in. To improve, I’d suggest more features, perhaps a mini-game that everyone can fiddle around with while they wait for money to “pour” in.
