distracting banner through out the game, ads when using the warp system or skipping waits on fishing. two small purchases get rid of all ads, though
the order board refreshes every two minutes, so if you’re working on an urgent order you might not want to stop until it’s cleared
fishing has a two minute timer that can be skipped with an ad
It takes a long time to collect enough resources to progress.
It takes time for resources to replenish.
This whole game is about grinding and collecting resources.
If you want to quick travel it will show an ad. If you find a treasure chest you get the option to open it by watching an ad. If you want to speed up the fishing timer you have to watch an ad. If you want to enter a specific area you have to watch an ad. Bottom of the screen has an ad banner. Besides the quick travel and banner the game gives you the option to watch ads for a small reward.
Once you mined/chopped a resource down you will have to wait a minute to a couple for it to replenish itself. There is no visible timer for when something is available again so you chop down other resources on other parts of the map while you wait. It uses ads to skip the fishing timer, that is the only skippable thing.
The 100% completion reward for each map is finding a special crate that is up to random chance. Once you got the crate you can either spend in game money that is easy to collect and some resources to play a mini game, alternatively you can watch an ad to skip all that. It rewards you with a collection item that once you completed the collection for that map rewards you with faster tools to break stuff faster. It is 100% optional, but without it the game will start to feel slow in later areas.
