    Used 51st code
    2)first impressions:
    Good arts and fan service:)
    Great that the game is translated into Russian.
    Lots of humor in descriptions of gnomes.
    3)Share button is way too big. I press it every time when new gnome is opened.
    To upgrade barrel you need to spend real money, I think you must add another way to upgrade it with game cash.
    Very hard to get last gnomes,you need to spend more time to do anything in the game.
    Or, ofc it can be fastened by iaps and watching ads.
    And also found a big bug or the game is not completed yet? I merged two police gnomes and got one police gnome, and one place is empty forever now (I mean it seems to be empty place for a gnome, but no gnome can be put there since it tells “No place”. How’s that? The new gnome must have appeared, but nope.
    4)what do you mean by getting further in the game? How big the level of gnome is? Anyway, here is both of my progresses.

    1. used #2

    2. this game is so much funny and addictive,i can't stop laughing when this so much funny Gnomes moving :)
    I like achievements rewards,one of the best thing is Gnomebook,there is 28 beautifully designed gnome characters( cool and funny description for every gnome)

    3. Controls -i think will be much better and easy if controls work like "tap one than tap other gnome"
    This slide controls are not bad but somethimes they are not precisely!
    Too much ads is irritating often so my advice is to reduce ads on minimum!
    There is few critical bugs on high levels:
    - no possible to marge two police gnome
    - can't buy gnomes in store with money that i have more than they cost (i have 1.1t and can't buy LilWayne for 631.7b)
    - watch free videos sometimes work sometimes not,when videos working then opening barrels not working and must restart game!

    Took 49. Will post my feedback when I get a chance later.

    Edit:
    Initial thoughts: very polished game. I think the music/sound effects are top notch and everything about the UI just seems very crisp to me. Overall, a game that I can see being successful on the app store with some changes, which I outline below.

    Some feedback:
    • Typo in the tutorial in the very beginning: I think the message said something like "repeatedly tap the to drop barrels faster", where there probably should have been an icon after "tap the" in order to signify to players that they should tap the corresponding button.
    • Another small typo/nitpick: in the shop, the second item should be "more mystery" instead of "more mistery"
    • I think overall the controls are solid; one thing that I do wish was possible was to be able to tap the barrel icon at the bottom and also match gnomes on the gameboard at the same time. When I was playing I would frequently try to do this (left thumb tapping the barrel icon, right thumb swiping on gameboard) but the controls weren't very responsive (swiping in particular wasn't working most of the time). Not sure if this is intended or not, but I think this would be a nice feature to add in terms of controls.
    • Finally, maybe add a little "help/tutorial" section under the settings in case a player forgets some aspect of the game. I know the game is very simple, but adding a small one or two screen tutorial section never hurts! ;)
    Now the following feedback may be a bit subjective, as it has to do with some of my personal preferences as to what I look for in a game:
    • At its core, Merge Gnomes is a very solid "clicker" game - all you have to do is tap on the screen and make matches to increase your production, and you can step away from the game for a bit and come back to all the gold that your gnomes have mined. I think Merge Gnomes does a great job; the graphics, sound, and controls are all very good and offer a fun gaming experience.
    • However, I think one of the things that Merge Gnomes is missing is something to keep players coming back; granted, I've only reached the 5th game board so far, but I haven't noticed much sense of progression in the game besides getting more gold and discovering newer gnomes. Giving players this sense of progress is important; for example, I think adding cosmetic upgrades in the shops (such as giving the gnomes a different color outfit, or maybe giving cosmetic enhancements to the gnome's pickaxes, or even adding various props around the gameboard) would liven up the game a lot and give players something to work towards. Right now in the shop it seems like all you can buy with gold are gnomes, so I think adding cosmetics or maybe some other features would go a long way.
    • Adding on to this sense of progression and making players want to continue playing, I think adding a daily quest feature would help. For example, there could be quests for tapping X amount of times, merging X number of gnomes, etc that are granted on a daily basis and have a small reward for the player upon completion. This keeps players engaged with the game, which is something that I think would help with adding a sense of progression.
    • One thing I do think the game does very well in terms of progression is achievements/GameCenter. I'd like to see more achievements added to the game later on, but right now the current achievements do add a lot of enjoyability to the game.
    That's all my feedback for now, and feel free to shoot me a PM if you have any questions.
