34050 was my final score.
I wish I had read the author comments before hand to avoid those black gems I kept collecting. I'd recommend a small tutorial bit explaining the point system as well as maybe some kind of punishment for dying (-500 points?). This won't necessarily wow anybody and I'm sure this will get plenty of negative comments, but it's a great start for a first game.
I don't know what people are complaining about, I complete the game 3 times and got all the medals.
-Pause when you are figuring out what to build next.
-Concentrate on one supply at a time. i.e. Collect leaves, then collect wood, then collect bark, stone, etc. Don't worry about using all of one tree.
-Use apples as apples, only worry about making the apple farm thing for the medal, collect meat and fish for easier use.
-Coconuts are useless.
I made the fortress in as quick as 5 days, could have done it quicker if I wasn't doing medals. It just takes patience and know how to play this game, which for 3 days, is an amazing achievement.
Also: Those looking for Wilson, look near the end of your adventure on the island.
It was kind of fun, but mostly too easy, I beat it and got all the medals in about 5-10 minutes. The secret medal is like russian roulette for the poor, risk it all, get busted, though I never got busted so meh. You pickpocket a repair guy on the second floor. Strategy, risk it all on the coin flip, second floor, pick the spinner on the right and click the spin button over and over and you'll see the money rack up. It'll go down and up but you can do this and win the game pretty easily. Third floor you can russian roulette I never lost, but eh go at your own risk, stock is pretty quick to grasp on the fourth floor so do it. 3/5
