I recently downloaded each of these games. The art style, and story is good. I’m hearing from other reviewers that there are sound effects, but maybe you need earphones for those.
The main downside to these unfortunately like everyone says os the energy it takes.
1 instead of a sentence costing energy, block them in segments. End on cliffhangers if you really want people to buy energy. Not just the next normal thing to say.
This would also help people remember what was going on the next day, if they choose not to.

3 more chances at the mini game
4 supply and demand evaluation of the energy potions. I think you will find that by decreasing the price, you will get far more customers buying them. For example..
$10x600 a day
I believe halving the price would more double the second number. I bet every dollar down would be like an exponent to that current rate. Maybe not as dramatic, but still. $9-700, $8-850, $7-1,050, $6-1,300, $5-1,600
That with the additional adds would pull in much greater revenue for you. Also the Ryan story might be a little hot for 12 year olds. 21 and if I had a daughter I’d hate to catch her reading that first secret scene before she was 16. Probably going to put this on each of them..
