Player Comments on Candy Quest
What I am reminded of with this game is a wikipeadia stub. It is apparent that you wanted a simple game, maybe even to practice scripting.... but where is the plot? Can I get robbed working in the car lot? What is the size of this island? Who else lives here? Would there be options for keeping all this cocoa a secret? How can I be sure that the first deal I make with a big name company, that I wont get ripped off? I mean, it took me a second to realize that you don't actually start on the island. Apparently the fun is transporting it! Hrm...
Ways to improve the game:
*Have more options in the car lot, as in, "work 3 hours" or even "work all hours." Should make time go faster.
*The hours going down is a little disconcerting, also, are there no options in the editor for a 12-sided die or some such? Also, 'randomly' waking up at home is jarring, really I stoped paying attention to 'time of day' when I got into a pattern for making money. But seriously, why does it take 1 to 2 hours to buy 5 provision but not any time to get food?! I think the script is really messed up here.
*Have a message for if you actually fail the dice game in the casino. Okay, figured it out, bet 10 seems to not return anything or I am really unlucky. Bet 50 on fail has 'shops' rather than 'exit.' Heh, and bet 100 has the fail option to just 'leave.' Maybe, after the scripts are fixed, consider some more games?
*Maybe have a way back for the '"Borrow" Boat' page.
*Oh cool, game over when you run out of money.....maybe a warning in the beginning? Kinda frustrating if your are not watching that variable closely as the game does get a little mind numbing and monotonous. I ran out and had to start again as I want to give this storygame an honest review.
*The link to travel to the island only takes the provisions and not the food.
I want to like this game, and do because I am a sucker for game mechanics and numbers and appriciate what you are trying to do. Fix the scrpting, add in a few characters to interact with and throw in one more win or lose option and I think it could hold its own!

This was a great idea, and I liked how the functions worked. Sadly it was let down by the pure repetitiveness.
The beginning simply involved me waiting for the car-lot repeatedly until I made lots of money then repeated trips to the shops as buying resources took up time.
Once I had clicked the wait/car-lot buttons repeatedly and had the supplies I needed for my first trip... I then simply had to keep clicking wait/buy resources over and over again repeatedly as the first trip ensures you never need any other button due to the amount of cash you earm.
Also is the casino bugged. I decided to try it out since I had like 6,000 and after over 20 tries I never one a single time.

On a whole, this was an interesting game with decent scripting. It took me about fifteen minutes to get to $10,000, and a lot of that time was spent at the very beginning, where the only thing you can really do is waste time until the Car Lot opens and then work for ten dollars an hour.
In essence, the beginning was a little tedious and might turn some people away. I would recommend making the car lot open all the time just to save people the trouble of clicking the 'do nothing for an hour' link, because I felt it didn't really add anything to the game. The casino was a nice addition, since the temptation to speed up earning money adds an element of chance to the game, but it's apparently impossible to win with any bet less than $80, so you might want to check your scripting and make sure the dice rolls are working. Unless, of course, you never intended for those bets to be winnable in the first place, haha.
Still, this it was fun to watch the numbers climb upwards, even if the game takes a bit of patience. The writing was simple, but it doesn't need to be overly descriptive for this kind of game. What's important is that the grammar and spelling were excellent, and the setting was interesting.
All in all, a worthwhile game and a fun little diversion for anyone who's looking to waste some time.

This story is indeed fun if you were to really try hard (Which I did not) and gain money and things like that, but I never went about and did things. I don't get why you can just exit right from the start. Why would I bother clicking on the button to start it if I wanted to end it right away?

An interesting idea, but the provisions shop really needs to be open longer hours!

Extremely repetitive. I spent 30 minutes clicking the same buttons before finally reaching 10K. I like what you got going here but it could be way better

Fun but overly repetitive until you're literally working every day and just repeating the same process until you get enough money. There are better ways to implement this. I was literally just grinding for gold in this game and the "coco" part was just a bonus to get more money.

The game is very repetitive, and the idea of the car lot only being open for so many hours in the day doesn't really help. The beginning of the game goes very slowly, involving for the most part simply clicking 'do nothing' and 'car lot' over and over. I would love to see this game improved where the car lot is open all hours. I would also love to see an improved casino. I like the idea of the casino, but it could use some improvement. Better odds for one - I understand that it should not have too great of odds, but as it is the casino is pointless because winning is so rare.
Right now, as it is, this game was a waste of time to me, but I think it couod be improved.

Yeah...I meant a 1, but the description for 2 is better

The only thing that makes the game last is the fact you can only buy 10-20 provisions a day. Also there where never "mare Hershey's" to begaining with so, yeah. Other than that the work at the car lot forever strategy does work and restores chocolate to the world. If you made the days longer the game would be a lot better. In addition you could also add more features.

... You know, if all you need to do to win the game is make the money, then somebody could potentially win this game just by working at the car lot... It'd just take a hell of a long time ??

Kinda fun, but pretty repetitive. It looks like the food is never used up on trips.

It needs to be a little more detailed. :( Good job though! ;D

Waiting for Fazz to make a long, thoughtful post. Which will inevitably happen.
