3.5/5 This is a city management game setting story. Since I finished it in one sitting, must be quite interesting for me somehow, rite??!

So you have MC who met ML early in the story. Jointly work together and built a city in the apocalyptic era, but here's the unique part, it's totally game like and very fantasy like in a sense, eventho the story itself is a fanfic already.

The story is pretty short, you can barely feel the villains presence anywhere. No thrill or anything, almost too boring if you're... more>> not into city management type of setting. Even the managing plot is barely there, MC basically only upgrade everything and barely plan anything. Ofc that aspect also becoz MC met ML and they complimented each other with their "cheats". Nothing on character development too. Anyway, you don't need your normal three views for the story.

So I wrote the meh, but this is quite an easy read if you're not put off by the setting. It's not bad in my opinion, but yeah it's not great either. The ending has a twist, but it's actually pretty anticlimactic 🤣 the point is our CP is OP and great. I recommend to read this only for the CP. <<less

This novel is quite good if you like apocalypse novels and infrastructure novels. This focuses more on the latter, you know, slowly building up a city that can fight against the apocalypse. BUT!!! Not in the usual way. It's truly a mysterious, black-box system that works very similarly to those popular infrastructure games XD. The quality of the story itself can only be said to be subpar, the characters aren't all that interesting and the drama is petty at best. However, if the infrastructure is to your taste, this should... more>> be pretty normal for you!

_________

SUMMARY: The MC of this story, Song Xingcheng, wakes up on the day of the apocalypse with a head full of novel content. According to this novel content, he was bound to be used and abandoned by the guy that he had a crush on. Of course, he wants nothing to do with any of it. He decides to adjust himself based on the mistakes he made in his dream. Which starts with exploring his cheat first (a game panel that enables him to slowly build and upgrade a city) and then teams up with the ML (He Qiashen), who incidentally also woke up with a cheat and novel content on the first day of the apocalypse. Working together, the two slowly build a city that can act as a reprieve for the people of their country.

_________

THOUGHTS: Although fun, the story is quite flawed. The MC's cheat was too cheat-y. To the point that it restricted the future of humans rather than helped it. I thought it was cool at first, but more and more, it became evident that it blocked the progress of humans. (Actually, this reminds me of another novel, a BG one called "Apocalypse Lord", that one had the MC as a City Lord as well. I prefer that one though because the setting made more sense. It was an actual game in the end, so the city that was built without sustainability in mind was logical. As for here, I had to work hard to ignore it so that I can enjoy infrastructure T.T.) My recommendation, if you're going to read this, try to not to have expectations XD. Just go into it believing it's all a game. That way, the process may be a little smoother.

BUT OK. Enough about the cheat, there are the characters as well. TBH, I don't like the MC that much. The ML was fine, but he was also a bit boring. Their romance was also a bit bland since the ML was pretty much all in from the beginning. So yah. Don't read this thinking that the characters or the romance will make up for the world settings being flawed LOLOL. By saying all this, I make the story sound like it's very bad. But the truth of the matter is, I enjoyed it quite a bit! I looooove infrastructure stories. And no matter how flawed they get, I can't help but feel satisfied reading them. If you're the same, then there should be no problem with trying out this story. If not, then I suggest you stay far away pfft! As for my rating, the TL is currently unfinished and I read it mostly in MTL. Usually, I won't give a rating but this time, the MTL was surprisingly readable (80-85%). So my official rating is... 3.44/5!!! Looks low. That's because, content-wise, this is really a problematic story XD. Most of the points are based on personal enjoyment. <<less

I give this 4.5/5 stars. The story is cute and short and loses 0.5/5 stars because of how it ends. Making you feel like there could have been more or a better way to end. 82 of 84 chapters are actually the story and the other is like the author lost the inspiration to make more chapters and just fast past the story or gave a resume of what they wanted to write to make the novel so it really seem has ended.

It was genuinely good until around halfway through, that's when it becomes clear that the writer lost interest in their novel.

The progress speeds up, it gets a lot less detailed, plot points are glossed over, others simply repeat several times, and the initially still acceptable logic gets lost.
From chapter 60 onwards, nothing makes sense anymore, the writer rushes from point to point, finishes them in two chapters, and even starts to "explain" things by stating that no one knows why or how, so let's just move on.

Characterisation, relationship progression,... more>> all of it suffers from the "I lost interest in my own story" fate. People suddenly OOC, some characters are just never mentioned again, the CP's love develops in one chapter although they never actually progressed past the "good brothers" state, which made the sudden romance quite strange.

Zombies have never really been a danger, the story uses the classic super slow, dumb as a brick kind of zombie, mostly in small groups, while MC's group is armed with guns/rifles, drives around in trucks and off-road vehicles, etc.
Later they develop supernatural abilities, while the zombies don't, so it's basically multiple Alices from RE + hundreds of people with weapons against low numbers of TWD zombies.
There's no suspense, no thrill, coupled with the collapse of the overall plot, it's hardly worth the time.

It's a pity, the writer had a lot of good ideas, nice characters, and hints to exciting future development, but all of it fell flat due to a loss of motivation and interest on their part.
Their final words pretty much confirmed this, they were out of ideas, and likely for a very long time.

Read it if you like city building and zombies, just don't expect more than around 30-40 chapters of somewhat decent story, everything after that is just a tragic mess. <<less

Its... Ok. I dont really know how to place this novel. On one hand I sincerely enjoy urban planning and city development aspect of the novel. On the other hand, there are some parts that I couldnt stand (mostly the MC but this is a subjective opinion, the CP is unbearable to me around ch46 of the novel) the ending leaves me speechless (they really just did a jazz hands and gave a summary point for the ending huh) -- around the end, the logic chain is completely loose, although... more>> you can still enjoy it thoroughly without using your head, the carelessness in how things are handled made me really ?? Confused, amused and abit sad (not that serious dont worry)

Its still a fun novel overall for people who likes zombie apocalype + clan building... Id say if you enjoy OP CP with golden fingers then you might like it. Although some aspects are weak, I think if youre just enjoying city building it would still be a good read. <<less

A rather light-hearted city building apocalypse novel!

The relationship of our two main characters is just pure dog food. They are indeed a few annoying cannon fodders here and there but they are resolved rather quickly.

The ending twist is a rather underwhelming but it's a decent end.

Its a good novel, the setting is very focus on the development of the city ability of the MC, the romance was a little slow since they confesed the love by the middle of the novel, but it was good since it was focus more in developing the MC and ML ability and creating a city, and there was not dog blood or drama in the romance, even when the MC and ML meet they family (they family are bad guys that betrayed them) they resolved it pretty quickly, overall... more>> is a good novel. <<less
