Well, on everyone's recommendation I downloaded Solara and have gotten to Level 8, but somewhere along the line, I've gotten stuck and at this point the only thing I can do is collect gold from shops I've built. I have 1 quest left in the list and it requires a level 9 hero. Also, I think I may have built things slightly out of order, because whenever I try to build something by using the auto-place and build button, it says not enough space in tower to auto-build shop. I'll give you my stats, and hopefully that'll give someone a clue as to how to help.
15886 gold, 939 Esper, 130/130 food, 219 population, I'm 23 percent through level 8. Can anyone figure out where I may have gone wrong, and better yet what I can do to fix it? I'm not even sure how to start over, if I'd even have to. I just started this game yesterday I really like it but don't like being stuck not bein able to do anything.
