I really enjoy playing this game, it brings my wife and I great joy and a chance to bond over something in common.
I have however noticed that the ‘random number game’ and cost of creating hybrids is a bit too high. VERY often I use up 100 common DNA (50 from one critter, 50 from another), and only get 10 DNA for the hybrid. This has quickly become a huge problem.
Initially it’s not tooo bad, but now that I need many hundred, even thousands of hybrid DNA to level up my critter it’s a bit beyond reasonable/imbalanced.
I believe that the “random number game” element is okay, but the average value needs to be increased. Right now it is very inefficient, 100 DNA converts to 10-40 within 3 std deviations. I’m seeing it very often giving only 10 DNA.
I recommend that the minimum DNA awarded is 20 rather than 10.
