The Big City V1.3, a remake of the fishing game!
Ov3R10rd (46)

In this game, you are a new citizen in pixel city. You start as a humble fisherman, and move your way up to mayor. Good luck! Credits to Amelia Blackwell! I have finished the fisherman part, but I am working on the next level up!

100% made by me!
Fishing idea by Amelia Blackwell!
Have fun, and be sure to share your ideas!


V1.0
Just the fishing game, there is a fish mart, shop, and fishing area to make money.


V1.3
Added a whole new building, and workers!
These little guys can help you catch more fish than usual by giving you a 2,3 or 4 fish boost, depending on the amount of workers.
You can hire workers for 5,000 gold each in the new building!


V3.5
Added the user input bait system!
This means that you can buy your own bait once instead of having to purchase multiple
packs more than once!
Fixed the price for the 3rd bait option.
Nerfed the fisherman price by 50%.

there is a problem with the prices of the baits because 5 bait = 25$ and 20 bait = 120$ and 20/5 = 4 and 4x25$ = 100$ and not 120$. except that it's a good game

This is pretty cool and fun. Fun to see different interpretations of different games.

I always catch fish
Did you make it so that you always have to?

1
Ov3R10rd (46)

@epicman702 Yes, I was thinking that you should always catch fish, the reason is if you have a chance to not catch fish, the game would take very long.

@epicman702 I guess if I made it so you didn't always catch fish, better items like the gold rod could be much more rewarding.

My biggest criticism is that, in its current state, this game is a grind simulator. You need to make the game more interactive with the player. Simply going to different locations to press numbers gets extremely tedious and boring about a minute into playing.

@DrCereal Sorry... I tried my best on the game

@Ov3R10rd Don't be sorry, man; it's just criticism.

Do something like add more things to do when walking around. Make the player think at shops. (Variable prices?) Make fishing a challenge. Just make the game less monotonous and it'd be great.

Sorry if I was a bit harsh. I'm just trying to help you out.

@DrCereal Ok I will try to fix the game, but I did try and make the game as a grinder styled game, a remake of the fishing game(by ameliaBlackwell), which was a grinder.

I am interested to in the player thinks feature you said, explain it! I think it could be a good idea for this game!

In edge, the input box covers up the shop.
Other than that, good game (but I couldn't buy anything).

1
Ov3R10rd (46)

@GameMaster1928 You could not buy anything... that is odd. It worked fine for me! What exactly happened? And I will be sure to move the gold box.

1
GameMaster1928 (40)

@Ov3R10rd, Since the input box covered the shop on edge, and as soon as I closed the input box the shop would close, I was not able to see what I could buy.

@Ov3R10rd, here is an image of the problem:

Ov3R10rd (46)

@GameMaster1928 Oh, sorry, this game was made on a chromebook, so the pop up is much smaller. Very sorry, but I do not think I can do anything to fix the game on your computer, so sorry! :(((

GameMaster1928 (40)

@Ov3R10rd Maybe if I scroll so I can still see it?
Yep I can

1
GameMaster1928 (40)

@Ov3R10rd, I made my own game for the game jam, and instead of alerts, I just draw text on the screen until the player presses a key (in this case, F1). If you want to look at my code, it's at https://repl.it/@GameMaster1928/Stuff (in the folder "Space Runner", in the file "script.js").

1
Ov3R10rd (46)

@Ov3R10rd nothing needs to be fixed?

1
GameMaster1928 (40)

@Ov3R10rd No I guess people can just scroll around
Anyway I memorized the names of the rods

1
Ov3R10rd (46)

@GameMaster1928 sweet! I will take this into consideration.

1
GameMaster1928 (40)

@Ov3R10rd Also, can you change the fish key to enter (instead of 1)?
Then I can make a python bot to spam enter!

Hmm I think a have a bot around here that presses enter and 1
shuffles around files

1
Ov3R10rd (46)

@GameMaster This, I can do. ;)
But I am currently working on a website, so I will make this change probably tomorrow.

This game is really fun! The actual fishing game and this one are about the same.
Pros:

  • Graphics make it look amazing!
  • The simple input (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
  • The shopping is simple. You can choose your own amount, as well as there being preset amounts

Cons:

  • It takes forever to fish! I got to 20100399881 bait, and I coundn't even finish the game.
  • There are less fish in this game! And no levels! How can I compete with other people? :)

Suggestions:

  • Add more fish
  • Make it so that you can just press enter, to fish once
  • When you getter a better rod, make it so that you can go through more bait faster and catch more fish. For example, with a goolden rod, I can press enter, use 100 bait, catch 100 fish. Easy
  • Make it so that you can sell back bait. For a lower price of course.

Ov3R10rd (46)

@PYer Great suggestions! I will take into account every single one!
I will add another fish,
Definitely make a newer rod with that op 100 fish idea,
and I might make a sell back bait idea!

PYer (2045)

@Ov3R10rd Cool! I think it would make the game more interesting.

ahh wow! this is so cool!! I got up to the gold rod. It works really nicely with graphics. good job on all your hard work. I'm looking forward to more fish and rods :)

1
Ov3R10rd (46)

@AmeliaBlackwell Yeah! I am going to make a thing where if you get to 5,000 dollars, you can hire workers to fish for you! Then if you make it to 50,000, you can buy a building at the factory district! Time to get to work!

Ov3R10rd (46)

@Ov3R10rd :) see you in a couple hours!

1
AmeliaBlackwell (910)

@Ov3R10rd OH thats such a good idea!!!

Ov3R10rd (46)

@AmeliaBlackwell Your goal in the game is to spread your control over the whole of New Pixel City!
