my game crashed once i tried to microwave the 4th item

(+1)

Play button barely works most of the time for me. Have to click like 6 times just to get it to go

I just got 666 coins.

Nice Concept but I am 5 minutes in and it's already grindy but good job tho

I think you guys are right, the game gets repetitive after a while. I will think about how the gameplay can be modified or added to, so that the final game will not be as grindy. Thanks for trying the game out and the feedback!๐Ÿ™‚

Yeah, I have to agree with some of the other comments. There is a bit of a grind.

It has a good idea, though! :)

Thanks for trying the game out! I think I agree with you guys, it does get grindy, I should probably modify the gameplay or somehow add to it to make it less grindy. Thanks again for the video and the feedback!๐Ÿ™‚

You updated this to be a little less hard? I like it and it seems like it could turn out to be something really cool and interesting but it still seems REALLY grindy, and it doesn't seem like more expensive items do a whole lot more "damage." I'd say maybe make it a teensy bit easier? I'll be interested to see how it turns out when it's finished. Keep it up! :)

I agree with you guys, the game does get really grindy.๐Ÿ˜†

I think I should modify the gameplay too so it won't be as grindy in the finished game.

Thank you once again for the feedback and for trying the game out!๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Hey I checked out your game! It's a good simulation game of the microwave! Just sitting there and trying to get that thing open!

Btw up to you if you want to listen but I think you should let the player get more gold. Every time you blow up the chest in the microwave you get about 4~15 normally but I rarely got any jackpot which was 40+ gold. You have the light bulb unlocked at $200, it took me 10mins to get $200, after that you have another item after the light bulb costing $1000. I thought the light bulb would get me more gold but it seems like the same result of the  batteries. Plus you have to spend $500 to put more stuff in the microwave capacity. All I'm just saying that, I don't think much people will enjoy this if it's like this. If you want to get to the good part of the game, it's like saying you have to spend at least 1hour on playing the game.

I' m just being honest but I started getting bored of Microwave Story. All I did was just click batteries over and over til i can unlock the next thing. If it says "microwave story" judging from the title, it shouldn't take to long to open the chest. It's like dragging the game out to dam long. It's a story, people might want to know what's in that chest but they can't, they have to invest a good amount of time into the game to get to that part. I feel like I'm repeating myself, all i'm just saying is that let the player get more gold or any bonuses.
Like I can imagine myself getting $1000+ gold in 30minutes. But it's just rinse and repeat. 


I probably did not make sense and sorry for making you read all of that, but I hope you don't mind me making a let's play on it.

I have to say Myerax is right. I like the game idea, but it takes way to long to find out what's in that chest. Maybe you can start with at least 2 or 3 objects? Just to offer some variations while trying to make gold? However, I like the idea ;)

Thank you for letting me know! I just updated the game, and it should be easier now (some items are more powerful, and game spawns way more coins). I hope it's getting closer to the right difficulty.

It would be awesome if you guys could let me know if the game is still too difficult, becomes too easy, or is okay.

I'll have a look after work ;)

Hey,

Thank you so much for the feedback! You're probably right, I have to admit I'm rather new to designing games (so feedback like yours are important in my learning process).

I have updated the game so it spawns more coins, and some items (including batteries) were made more powerful. Hopefully it's getting closer to the right amount of difficulty.

Please let me know if the game is still too difficult, or becomes too easy.

Thanks so much once again for the feedback (and the video)!

Hi. I played the game yesterday and got really close to the light bulbs, but then had to close the tab. When I came back just now, I had to restart the game! Please make it so that it saves your progress.

Oh no, it should save your progress automatically.

If you're playing the web version, are you using private browsing mode, or using any add-on or settings that could have automatically deleted your browser data? Or perhaps manually deleted your browsing data? Any of those could have deleted the game save data.

I'm using browser, Chrome, but I don't think I have any of those. Is it the Chrome that is the issue?

Iโ€™m so sorry I missed this post of yours until now.๐Ÿ˜ญ

I have tested it on a freshly installed Chrome on Windows, and the game saves properly.

It could also be caused by external cleaner programs that automatically clears your browser storage data.

If you donโ€™t have any of those, then itโ€™s probably something else that Iโ€™d have to figure out.๐Ÿ™‚
