1. Skool
Why not add Tests with grades to it and a few quests for them.
2. The Bonuswindow
Please put it in a menu on the side
It has ruined a lot of Combos in Catch the Snail for me by popping up and blocking the View.
And i believe im not the only one with that problem.
3. Someone mentioned an Arcade with Games.
I think thats a nice idea, Pingy always says he loves Pingy Pong. Lets give it to him.
4.The House
We know how it looks on the inside but what about the outside.
Maybe you can add a Outsideview of the House hopefully upgradeable

the dice game shouldnt be: “get number 6 and get 5 times your bet” it should be get an even number and the amount of money u bet is multiplied buy the even number you rolled… this would be a great addition to the game.

Trying to get VIP as it says on the page.. by making up ideas!

My ideas
Be able to buy/earn a higher interest rate with the amount of money you (have in there/spend for it) For example, I put in 100,000, the interest rate rises and (says it rised) I take it out, the new interest rate is still there. or, I buy higher interest rate accounts, like, I start with a wood account, then it goes “UPGRADE TO STONE” “UPGRADE TO BRONZE” “UPGRADE TO SILVER” “UPGRADE TO GOLD” “UPGRADE TO PLATINUM” “UPGRADE TO DIAMOND” and naturally, the most important step for any penguin “UPGRADE TO FISH

I was going to say “new rods/bait” perhaps even a net. But then I noticed the new description in pingy’s store. I still say this idea is awesome, but its good to know you are already considering it.

Being an idle RPG we should be able to see pingy’s progress. Like, a profile page that shows his current items, level and stats. granted. that wouldnt DO anything, but it would add more “rpg” into it all if we could see his weaponry

Easier ways to make money would be good. or maybe more money per level for the bar filling

I believe that the interest rate does climb with higher deposits.

Sellyme’s Pro Tips

Once you reach a total amount of cash over $5000, put it all in the bank, it makes much more money than Fishing does.


While making burgers, you can gain an extra second per burger by clicking the “Make new burger” just as the previous one finishes. Note that this will cost you 10 Sea Snails per burger instead of 5, but as sea snails are so easy to get (At least if you want Snail Catcher7 – That’s 25,000 snails) it’s not a real problem. Making 2,000 burgers like this is 20,000 sea snails though, which is a good hour catching, so don’t over-do it.


In Shut the Box, always fill up the exact number shown on the die. If this is not possible, get the pair (or triplet) of numbers that will fill it and is closest together (i.e., if you have 9, click 9, if that’s not available go 4/5, if that’s not available 3/6, then 2/7, and finally 1/8. Don’t go into triplets unless absolutely necessary.)


Double or Nothing is the fairest Casino game, but if you lose you lose badly.


The High/Low 2 quest (ten combo) is very difficult, but possible. Always follow this pattern:

1-9 – Higher
10 – Your choice
11-20 – Lower

This is the statistically best strategy, don’t fall victim to the Gambler’s Fallacy.


The High / Low 3 quest is impossible, don’t bother. Statistically less likely than the Octo Jackpot, and only 14 people have earned it, many of them likely through .sol editing.

Okay, despite being a 1 in several million chance, I managed to get it through some incredible stroke of luck. And there’s a High / Low 4. That is just… No. I’m not even going to try.

Okay, I got that too. Took 12 hours non stop, but oh well. However the 50 combo quest is just to trip up hackers. There is no fucking way that is possible.


The Octo Jackpot is also extremely unlikely, but quite possible (And requires much less thought). I’d still put it off until you get some other quests though.


Goldfish eat burgers in the farm, so for every 6 burgers you get a whale! This is a good trade off as 6 burgers = 30 snails, and whales are worth much more than 30x as much as snails.


Bank interest is a 2% flat rate. It seems to be every 5 minutes, however on my game it’s varying, though this is possibly due to CPU prioritization. $15,000 in the bank will give you $1 every second, significantly more than than any profits possible with idling money elsewhere.


Maximum fish prices (May be slightly lower than true):

Small typo: The Achievement on the second column, 6th row, says it’s a rare hourly bonus, when it should be half-hourly.

Well selly, then, my request is changed to “Id like to be able to SEE the rates” :P Since otherwiseits hard to tell if the bank is even worth it… maybe higher level bank accounts would save more interest before being stuck. Like, instead of 1 round of interest, 5, or at the highest level unlimited

 
Flag Post

Anything above about $5000 is definitely worth being in the bank. But yes, more prominent interest rates would be nice.

you should be able to lower whale farm time: 500$ for two minutes, for example. additionally, like my comment, you should have a puzzle game – see my comment.

Bug Report:

I achieved a 35 combo on the (first?) version of the game and did not unlock the math achievement or complete the second math quest…

Now, no matter how well I do, they don’t unlock. D:

I suggest some sort of ninja hat In the game, Something like this I guess http://www.wholesaleforeveryone.com/Merchant2/graphics/00000001/hats/hat5485BK.jpg

I’m not sure how long this stuff takes you but yeah I don’t think It’s simple, Afterall even if u made it, you still gotta make an achievement and think of what challenge you could put on for it, but id love to see a ninja hat in the game:)

btw: did you think about costumes yet? or would that be to.. fked up?:p

You can use burgers to cut 100 seconds of the time taken.

I’d like be be able to add more hats, face items, and maybe even costumes. But, I paid for the art for the game from my own pocket, so adding more stuff like that will pretty much depend on how well the game ends up doing.

The Math Genius award isn’t for getting a high combo, btw.
