Topic: The Perfect Tower / My Blue Cubes Disappeared!

Did you just tier up in the HQ? Doing that should reset your stats and all resources.

Topic: Holyday City / Massive jump in cost between two upgrades

Upgrades come to a temporary halt, but you personal level will skyrocket there with an exp manager every 3 managers for a short time (don’t forget vortex jumps). It’s just some variation in gameplay, which is good.

Topic: Holyday City / Hard reset

You can go to a computer without a holyday city save, export the code and import it on your own machine. This way you can also make a backup of your current progress.

Topic: Holyday City / Bring vortex resets back !!!

Does it help if a vortex jump also added a resource production multiplier? x25 profit and x2 resources for every 6 PL’s seems like a great deal to me. I fully agree that x5 profit is a bit low in the higher levels, but on the lower levels the reset is a great addition to the game (which has unfortunately been stolen from me).

Topic: Holyday City / Bring vortex resets back !!!

Giving players a choice to waste progress doesn’t make the game better. As a player you always want to get the most progress as fast as possible, resetting to an earlier state without extra bonus is just silly. Resetting to an earlier state with extra bonus is what made holiday city better than other idlers. How about a x25 bonus every 6 levels instead of x5 every 3?

Topic: Holyday City / Bring vortex resets back !!!

I’ve not had a chance yet to get a vortex reset. I reached my first GL at the end of the september event, and I rushed to get it before it ended (because not resetting is a great boost). Now that resetting is entirely gone it is indeed just a shorter game. How about not resetting when claiming fee or moving to another city?
You indeed reset your progress with a reset, but you’re going through it much much faster than the last time you’ve reset. Just like how a new manager makes you skip a bit more of the first minutes of the game, a vortex reset makes you go through the game much faster. It’s not the progress that makes it fun, it’s the speed at which you get it.

Topic: General Gaming / Idle Games

I’m sometimes clicking on an idle game just to check if it has new and unique components in it. Most of the time (which is more than 90%), it doesn’t. How can these crappy simple games end up in the top games list? Because people who do watch them, keep watching them. Intentionally not using playing here. Such an idle game can usually be finished within a few minutes, where finished means unlocking all unique content. Kong should check for unique users and/or play time (per session). The only thing that idle games want is plays plays and more plays, don’t feed them.
I do play holiday city and adcap, but I deeply hate the simple built-in-2-days idlers.

Once you can get 500 investors, test it and you’ll wonder why you didn’t get them earlier.

Topic: Kongregate-Published Games / [Endless Boss Fight] BUG: Buying while scrolling

Try scrolling, the buy coins buttons will move with your finger. If it’s not a bug, I’d call it a mayor design flaw.

Topic: Kongregate-Published Games / [Endless Boss Fight] BUG: Buying while scrolling

I was looking in the regular coins shop and tried to scroll to see if there were more options. Then suddenly a purchase succesfull message popup appeared and my 100 hard-earned white milk coins turned into 10k useless regular coins. Please revert this for me and don’t allow buying coins while scrolling (and a confirm dialog would also be very handy).

Topic: Kongregate-Published Games / [Endless Boss Fight] Feedback

The controls work fine, I only have some problems with dashing (iPad), sometimes I accidentially dash (when I quickly want to collect some coins in front of me) but often it just doesn’t dash. I probably need a ‘dash’ button in a corner.
I do like the game, but it is currently too hard to level up your boss. I fought multiple bosses of other players and gained 100 DR, but nobody fought my boss. I really want to level my boss for more energy as that only unlocks one slot per levelup (it does say +2 when leveling though). And doing the missions seems useless as it only increases your multiplier and score doesn’t seem to affect anything.

//EDIT: Forgot time zones, my boss fights about 3 battles every night and that earns a nice amount of xp. I like it.
And bosses do earn 2 slots per level, just not for the first levelup.

Topic: Kongregate / New Split Test: Activity feeds *we're back!*

I have only one suggestion: bring back the recently played games on the homepage or make an option to bring it back (with the option to remove the activity feeds or recommended badges(which I also use frequently)) since it is my most used tool on kongregate.

You can get it out of the surprise (one mutation every 6 hours) and you may get some mebamoney if you help the developer (finding an important bug ect. On the official meba forums someone got 200mm for this) and buy it. I ready got 2 metabol1 out of the surprise.
