It borrows a lot of elements from other games but as a casual game it is very easy to pick up, and very easy to set down.

Got about lots of copies to gift to friends because I was enjoying the game, but then the lack of proper polishing prevented me from gifting those copies that used to cost like 10 dollars each, because I didn't want to look like an idiot who would gift copies of poorly done games. My friends didn't diserve that.
Now it's gone f2p and I'm stuck with those copies for eternity in my inventory as shame badges.
