Under rating threshold (show) The game isn't bad. The major thing that turns me off from playing is that the days just add up when you are doing nothing. I feel management games should be more casual and relaxing. Like when I am looking at the shop I can't take my time to read when each thing does because the days automatically add up. I think a good idea would be to increase the day after races by a set amount depending on the race.

Glad you enjoyed it! Interesting point. The clock does slow down in places like the shop - maybe we'll slow it further... (Reply from Playniac. Your rating helps us to make you more games!)

Under rating threshold (show) I have 1.109.665 acorns into the savings at level 26. Account of 33%, this means that in a month I get arround 30500 acorns of interest, while my 3 totally upgraded house cost me exatly 5544 acorns, and my 3 squirrels 4800. this means a total of 20156 of earnings without paticipating in races... I and my three squirrels, after 6 years, 3 months and 5 days, went in permanent holyday :)

Developer response from ChannelFour

Impressed that you are a master squirrel racer - not many people get to level 26! Your comments are really interesting and I'd like to talk some more to you directly about your experience in the game. I like that you went on permanent holidays ;) but perhaps we will slightly rebalance those top levels by reducing the interest rates a bit (reply from Playniac)

Under rating threshold (show) Really fun game, however, if you increased the track payouts a little bit, I think it would encourage people to play longer. IMO.

Under rating threshold (show) Game tips: If you are trying to make cash the best race isn't the latest one, its the highest level race you can do without using powerups; Those eat your profit margin. Save regularly as those 15% interest rates add up.....Make sure you have full energy before each race.I use two pairs of racers so one set is always rested...... After level 20 invest heavily in clothing! Shop items allow your racer to have over its maximum stats which is the only way to consistently win the highest possible race repeatedly and cuts down the grind to 25 by an incredible amount.... also..... never underestimate the restorative power of tea....

Under rating threshold (show) Great game, these management games always get me addicted. Although I still don't understand how did the squirrels in the 1st race all of sudden get some ultra boosts, so that I keep finishing last with my well-trained squirrel. And also the boost bonus should also pop-up when the fast forward is activated. Nevertheless, I still support you with my 5-star rating!

Developer response from ChannelFour

Thanks for your kind words and 5-star rating - much appreciated! One hint - make sure your squirrels don't have low energy when they race... (reply from Playniac)

Under rating threshold (show) Honestly have no idea what the stats do. Strength? in a race? stamina? prolly obvious; focus? well he is a squirrel, but what does that *mean* in regards to racing?? also noticed some errors while in the bank screen, between cash, current, and savings not adding up

+ - !

(20)

Developer response from ChannelFour

Hi, All the stats combined help the squirrels in races, but if you look at the specific race tracks you will see some use particular stats more than others. That's what the coloured sections of track indicate. You can also see how your opponent's stats compare. (reply from Playniac; we need your 5-star rating to continue developing this game!)

Under rating threshold (show) I always give a game time to show its stuff, but after an hour this game completely fails for me. Unexplained stats, zero training and random performance by the opponents - making the stats, items and budgeting even more unreliable... Give the stats some meaning Allow the player to train instead of race. Make a tutorial of how you expect the player to approach this game, so the player is up and running before facing the dice roll mechanics of the race. Side note: Change the driver salary to suit their stats, not how many races they win. A driver who regularly loses 4 out of 5 racers and therefore requires you spend most of the winnings on boosts to get them in a ranked position, should not get a salary increase!

+ - !

(2)

Developer response from ChannelFour

Thanks for playing our game! The salary is dependant on game level, rather than race performance. The stats are linked to different tracks... There's a walkthrough here you might find useful: http://playni.ac/irs-walkthrough (reply from Playniac)

Then I end up in a deposit jungle, withdraw and loose track of my cash because the menus suck, and suddenly I am paying interest, without ever having raced between the withdrawing and depositing.

Under rating threshold (show) I enjoy this game very much, the only thing I don't like is that towards the end it takes a long time to level up, so I'm racing the same race over and over again until I unlock the next one at the next lvl up. My stats are maxed and I'm just racing to gain the exp needed to move on. Also, shop items seem pretty pointless to me, I almost never used the shop and came in 1st most of the time. Rated 5/5 regardless of it's faults because of it's successes. Keep on making these awesome games!

Developer response from ChannelFour

Hi. Thanks for the rating!!! I'm interested to hear more about your game, and what level's you got to when those dynamics emerged. Also if you used something else instead of the shop - e.g. more training. Will message you direct. (Reply from Playniac. Your rating helps us to make you more games!)

Under rating threshold (show) I gave you your 5 stars. The interface is really good, and the idea is good as well. I like that there are pause buttons on every screen. However, as many others have said, before level 16 or so, the levelling is too fast, and after, it is way too slow. In the beginning, it is pretty brutal, as every race you level up, but you don't have enough money to pay the increase in salary and house. On top of that, there is a random event after a few days, which can break your game. Maybe adding something else as a goal would be good as well, because just making money is not really good enough, especially when you end up making more from the bank then from races. What would be nice, is that the opponents would not be random, but would be people to beat in each race and you would get a medal to be the best in each, or something like that. Also the last few races are too hard. I was level 24 and tried the last one on the easier setting, and I had to buy all the shop items to win it.

Under rating threshold (show) Not too bad, I like it and it's one of the best management games around, three things though: -levelling is too fast before level 18, then it becomes boring, it's just like farming. -having more than three squirrels is worse than useless -you should be able to buy more than one thing at a time from the shops, buying teas when you're level 20 takes daya in the game.

+ - !

Developer response from ChannelFour

Thanks so much for your kind words! One hint - level up your homes to avoid needing to buy energy drinks. Also for multiple squirrels, use training on the weaker ones. Have fun! We did slow the clock down in the shop - I'll check that is still working as expected and slow it further if necessary. (reply from Playniac; please rate game 5-star so we can make next version!)

Under rating threshold (show) I have to say I am a bit shocked so many people have given this game under a 4 star rating. This is obviously a very well polished commercial quality game, and it's so rare that one is released that doesn't constantly badger us for money every twenty seconds while playing it. Also..... Squirrels are cute...
