Spinvilization: Build Your Civilization Spinning Reels!

By ~firefly~ Published on Dec 3rd, 2016 Last updated on Dec 9th, 2016 125

A civilization game inspired by Reeelz.
You might wanna try Reeelz (free on Kong) first as a warmup, since it shares some of the mechanics.

 

Time worked : ~3 weeks (too long, even if it was fun)
When you get to age 4 you win. I had more ideas for higher ages, but I was getting short on tokens and way past the point of diminishing returns -_-
Some combos at age 3 are pretty much here for thematic purpose and otherwise useless (like Horse).
This will change though if I eventually resume the project on another device.

Note : I am not english native speaker, so I'm interested in any error or weird text you might notice, for the sake of improvement :)

Commands :
Left / Right / Up / Down : navigate around the wheel
C : Action

UPDATE v 0.2.9.1 :
Made the instructions clearer ! Hopefully the mechanics are less confusing now. Let me know what you think ;)

Edit : added tags because they look so shiny
