    Kinda fun

    Its a simple high score app, but it's kinda fun and the presentation is very clever.

    Hi Mike! Loving the chants - great idea. I do have one problem, though. After reaching around 20000 in bids, there are increasing time delays before the next bids are displayed. Right now I have over 38k bid, and it's been at least a minute without new bids popping up. Is this a bug? Doesn't look like intentional behaviour.

    Best regards,
    P.

    Having trouble showing the full app info. What's the forum code?

    I'm using appinfo=all but it's not working.
    Code:

    This game needs more attention. It's a simple but engaging premise and the presentation is very polished.

    Yea this is a sweet little idea pulled of with great charm and balance.

    I too am getting the slow down between bids after around 20k. Each bid after that gets exponentially longer by double it seems.

    I love the theme and it has a solid foundation but I need it to add something. Like actually buying to collect items or having a currency. I quit playing high score games within minutes . This game has the most potential to be freaking Amazing

    Great fun as it is, but not much of a hook to keep playing unless you really care about high scores.

    I like the idea of adding something additional. Maybe a gallery of items sold or something else to buy with the coins. I haven't played too long so I might not have seen everything it has to offer.

    But for what it does offer, it does very well.

    This is my new favorite game ever! It's delightful and challenging and I love the variety of auctioneers. It's just really, really fun and I love the graphics, too. My only suggestion is to have even more variety in the artworks & antiques being sold (you may already have it at higher levels, but how about items like famous entertainment memorabilia and moon rocks and other highly valuable items?)

    But really, I just wanted to say great job making such a fun & original game!

    Thank you all for the feedback! Keep it coming!

    We are giving every comment thought and considering every suggestion.

    BTW. The new version 1.1.4 is free of the freeze bug described earlier - just update and it will be gone.

    Again, thanks & kind regards,
    Mike from Cherrypick Games :)

    Hi JoshW,

    Thanks for your post :)

    As for more variety - keep tapping these bids - I think you might enjoy the later auction houses once you unclock ;)

    Kind regards,
    Mike from Cherrypick Games

    I didn't realize you actually unlock more auctioneers the more you play. Are their more things to unlock . This is what I was talking about to keep me coming back and playing more. It's one of my favorite games at the moment.

    Hi Jayg2015,

    Cool to hear you like the game :)

    Yes, the more you play the more auction houses you unlock - on the end screen (after you finish an auction) you can see the total amount of coins earned compared to the amount needed for the next unlock (i.e. 80/100 - meaning you are missing 20 coins for the next unlock which requires 100 coins). This is also indicated in the auction house selection screen which you enter from the start screen.

    Each auction house has a unique auctioneer (including chants) who sells unique items. Also every next auctioneer starts his auction with a slightly higher starting bid. My personal favourite is the alien auctioneer ;) Good luck with getting legendary sales!

    Kind regards,
    Mike from Cherrypick Games

    Fun little idea, love the auction chants, happy to throw a little your way.

    That said, would be nice if ALL the auctioneers gave double coins once you purchased the coin doubling dude (er, droid). Kinda discourages playing with any others.
