Make no mistake: Al･Fine is not a dungeon crawler, so any comparison to other shop management games like Reccetear is unfair. You won’t be going around and killing monsters and looting items to sell nor will you be crafting. Instead, you’ll be clicking to places on the map to visit them, which makes time pass, buying goods to sell in your shop, and managing adventurers who will go out and fight monsters in your stead.
Crazy Oafish Ultra Blocks: Big Sale is a good idea, but a poorly executed one. Lack of a tutorial and lack of controller support makes the game feel unfinished while poor controls (though re-bindable) and even poorer performance make the entire thing difficult to enjoy.
