Probably Needs a Better Description


Provides Examples Of:

  • Ascended Fanboy: Youtuber PopularMMOs did a series of videos on the game. This resulted in him actually being added to the game in the form of the MMOnster.
  • Adam Smith Hates Your Guts: Hatching eggs faster costs gems, building structures/removing obstacles quickly costs gems, getting more workers to build structures and remove obstacles costs gems, building certain structures costs gems, getting certain monsters costs gems, continuing on the Adventure Map after your stamina is depleted costs gems, and gems are nigh-impossible to get without paying. Luckily, it's only $2 for 25 gems, so it's not impossible. However, 100% completion is still not easy on the budget.
    • Similarly, you need gold to buy the starter eggs and most building. To level up you monster, you need food which is got by spending gold. To upgrade buildings, you need gold and food. To get access to the cooler stuff, you need to level up and thus get experience point which you obtain by spending gold. Basically, if you want to get anywhere you need gold and need a good method of producing lot of it.
