I like how you provide the player a summary of their actions.

Thanks! I’m done with my revision, I think it should work using the same link. Of course, the map component will not work on the web, so it’s better if you test it on your mobile/tab. I’ve also added images, and deleted the itinerary display. If there are any more features that you’d like to see, please let me know! Also, I’d love to know your end-of-the-game conditions😊

The map is a great addition. But when I start the app and tap Play, it shows me Kochi and a map but there’s nothing (obvious) to tap to move on. The die shows up for a brief second and then disappears.

Edit: Sorry! Didn’t realize I had to scroll down.

I had to make it scrollable because the map needed to be a good size.

Makes sense. You might want to put a down arrow next to the map or at the bottom of the screen to indicate there’s more to see.

Also, I noticed that the image and map don’t update if I keep clicking the die (which is what I thought I was supposed to do). It’s a better experience if I wait but you could also code that in so that the die is only active after a second or so.

I never thought of that! The map and image update when your city changes. You might have noticed that when you moved from Kochi to Bangalore.

@codeswept Here are screenshots of the trip details (and thanks for demonstrating how to use the [details] [/details] code in Discourse!):

Wow! I ended each game with around 15000, but you’re at 24535!

I guess I got lucky!

I can’t get enough of your app @catsarisky! It is so much fun, and the disabled buttons before clicked monuments add an element of nervousness to the game😂

I’m so glad you like it! I’ve been thinking I should polish it up the rest of the way and publish it. :slight_smile: I’m enjoying playing it, too!

Once you do publish it(and you should), I’m going to recommend it to all my friends!

I finally got the “play again” button set up. If you notice anything glitchy, please let me know? thunkablecompanion

Next up: Travel insurance! (Because sometimes, you just don’t WANT to choose a trip.) And maybe some pictures for the tutorial.

Just a question: how did you get the tutorial column overlay?
Also, some feedback: I’ve played this game a lot of times and by now know how to play. You should probably use a stored variable to check whether the instructions have been displayed before, and display them accordingly. But you can keep an instructions button incase people forget how to play. I’m suggesting this because everything I opened the app, I had to go through the tutorial and there was no way to exit it.

Click the poodle. :). But you’re right - I could not display them and offer a help button instead.

The instructions are in a column with absolute position and a high Z. That allows the big cloning mess to happen while you’re reading. :slight_smile:
