    It's fun. It's a good time burner. Some of the goals are hard to achieve due to item rarity. Gold bars are very hard to get with out paying for them, I feel some items if needed for a challenge could be a little more common, and gold bars were slightly easier to come by, I'd would give it 5/5.

  • Game is good but devs need to bring out more content Jan 31, 2019

    By From vrgtrgr
    This is overall a great game however there are a few things that concern and I would like to put out. First off is the developers need to release more content quicker. Once you get to the end of the game there really isn’t much to do after. All there is to look forward is the daily, weekly and monthly bids. I’m at the end of Texas and it’s very boring playing the same level over and over again. I only get on now to play the daily mission. Next is the loot drop. I get the same three expensive (when I say expensive I’m talking about an item worth $6,000 or more) items in every game I play. There is no randomness to it and it’s very frustrating. There are seven items I haven’t unlocked yet and I’ve tried to go for them but since I get the same repetitive loot I don’t play too much now. Make all the items random so everything stays fresh. Lastly are the ads. Now I don’t mind watching an ad after each game if I’m able to buy a locker. If I wasn’t able to buy a locker then I shouldn’t have to watch an ad. There was a time where I played about five games and didn’t buy a single locker because the AI was driving the price up and made it too expensive but yet I still had to watch ads after each game. That frustrated me as well. Overall though this game is good. If you’re starting out you’ll have something to do for a while as it will take you a little time to get to the end of Texas but once you hit it the game will get very boring.

    Been playing non-stop for 2 weeks. Despite what others say, gold bars and energy are easy to accumulate...just watch a 30 second video. I never run out of energy unless I want to. I have up graded my car to level 8, shelves to level 7 plus used some to speed stuff up. You get out of the game what you put in...and I haven't spent one cent of real cash. Great game, love it...don't see me putting this down anytime soon

    So I found this game while I was just looking for something to pass the time. It is a great game to play I even got my wife to play it, it is a fast pace game which allows you to move up the ranks quickly. It also has a game within its self with the leagues and even if you lose the leagues you do it have to start back at square one which is really nice. The option to sell things in your pawn shop that you get later in the game is really nice you can make some good profit there and wait for the price that you would like to see your things sold for. The power ups that you can use to gain an edge are amazing as well just wish you could get more of them more often sometimes. In playing this game an idea has come to me that it would be cool if you could see how much money your opponents have brought with them because just like in real life sometimes they just try to keep biding to make it higher for the person who ultimately buys it and at that point it makes their person buying it have less money for the next auction. Even if it was a little bar with an approximate value that went with a high of green medium of yellow and low of red just to see if you thought they were trying to put bid you or raise the price. Just a thought love the game though.

    Addicted to this game! I'm on level 30 there are now more special auctions. I like the accelerated speed options. The bugs and glitches seem to have been resolved. However im still trying to find several common and uncommon items. Been playing this game for a couple months.I rarely play games on my phone but this has me hooked!

    It would be a good game if it worked properly. After an auction stuff taken to my inventory just disappears. It is happening often meaning you are just losing money because you can't sell the items. I got to level 8 and it says I've unlocked certain auctions but they haven't been unlocked for purchase. It's a shame because it has the potential to be good but random glitches make unfair. Will be deleting.

  • To power up dependent at later levels. Sep 22, 2018

    By dominionator
    I agree with an earlier review. The game starts of really well as you are able to win lockers at reasonable prices and make sometimes ok sometimes great profit. Once you hi New York though that all goes out the window. You must have power ups to know which lockers to get and to get them at a reasonable price to where you can make more that one to two hundred on a room. I saw a room that had a total of under two hundred in profit showing start off at $325 and en up going for $750 and still making a profit of $360 for the computer player. Where I on one locker used my last free power up the calculator to get how much a room is worth and because of the ai crazy bidding only made about $135 on a room that was calculated worth of $1551. At that rate it would take forever to get to the next level. Not to mention you only get 20 energy max and each round cost 7 energy so unless you want to buy more energy you can only do three rooms every hour plus. Or you can watch an advertisement for 5 energy which if you are paying attention isn’t even enough for a round. I just played 2 rounds 3 rooms each where the computer bought all 6 rooms and every single on of the lost money most by over $200. What a waste of time. Now I have to wait over another hour just to try 3 more times to get enough money to get past lvl 8. I bought 1 room out of 9 and made $150 dollars the other 8 as I was saying before the computer bought and lost money on. Ridiculous.

    This is another game designed to get you to watch ads. I can normally tolerate these types of games, but when they make it way too easy to accidentally spend premium currency just to switch price offers and plays unskippable ads every time you go back to the main menu, even my patience wears thin. What's even more annoying is some of these ads force you to their store page before you can even press the 'x'. I'm fine with watching optional ads, but not when I can't even play the game.

    Reduced from 5 stars to 1 because I go to auction, win the auction, then I choose items to take to the inventory and like magic they don't go to inventory, waste of money, my time, and takes the fun out of the game, this never happened before, I'm so disappointed and disheartened, especially when I pay real money to enhance the experience, not impressed at all, I'm a long time player also, not a good way to treat a loyal customer/gamer, I hope it's not a money making racket for the developer.

  • Oh yeah!! Aug 25, 2017

    By Shorthand sassy
    This is a great game! You can basically bid your game money on auction garages against the game players, and if you outbid the other bidders, you collect the items on the garage. Each of the items you collect is worth some amount of money, and the goal is not to bid too high, or else when you collect things, the value won't reach how much you've spent, and you will have lost money! But if you play your cards, and your money, right- you will be collecting all the way to the bank! And laughing at the players your beat! It keeps you on the edge of your seat on whether or not you will make or lose money! You can collect rare items and you can play some of the toughest people to beat in the business! With nearly no ads and great features, I only wish you could have a garage for yourself to sell your own items. But even without it, this game just keeps getting better, keeps gaining my attention, and I love it!! Perhaps my favorite part of the game, other than the whole game itself, is that it doesn't make you wait to play with annoying ads. It's practically ad free!!! Please try out this game you will not regret it!!

    It's a pretty simple straight forward game, and not complicated, it's fun, as a storage wars fan it really is enjoyable and you actually have to debate if the things in the storage units are worth bidding on! I recommend it if you plan on downloading it!!

  • Great-But! Sep 2, 2018

    By -Cody
    This is a great time killer game, I love that you can choose to watch ads to help get some more energy to keep playing just a little longer. And I love that the game is not just flooded with ads. In fact there are hardly any ads. Which is a plus. But there are a few things that just drive me crazy. Like how you can only take 3 items back to the shop. “In the car” to sell at your pawn shop. Even though there is more room underneath the 3 boxes it gives you a false hope that maybe you can unlock more space for you to take more items back. But I’ve seen no sign of this being a possibility. I also wish that there was less cool down time for clients or that there were more clients, instead of just the 3 you get every so often. So like maybe 5-6 in the same time span. Because not every client is a buy. In some cases I might only get 1-2 clients each time because they want too much for there item and won’t come down. Is a great game however and have spent real money. Because the game is fun enough to make me want to do so. Which says a lot compared to other games who make it impossible to play without spending real money. GREAT JOB!

  • Almost perfect! Jul 18, 2017

    By gggggggggggggggggggggeasy
    This game is very fun if you like watching auction TV shows or shows like "Pawn Stars", and it may even give you an advantage to the game. I think the game is easy to learn for people who haven't seen those shows as well, however. The guide is helpful and takes you through every aspect. The pawn shop you unlock later adds a lot more to the game and it kept me playing weeks after I finished the career part of the game. Now I focus on making my pawn shop the best it can be. Since I play a lot of games with energy, and I also have other things to do, I don't really care about the energy problem. After you clear a facility, it shaves off 2 energy anyhow, which is cool and allows you to accumulate items for your shop faster or allows you to earn more money just from seling the items immediately. My only problem is the constant ads after every bid war. If it was shortened to after every other war, I might not have a problem with it, but it's just so repetitive and frustrating.

    I play this game a lot and I haven't experienced any glitches, losing money or gold bars like other reviewers have said. I think it's really enjoyable! My only suggestion would be to let players expand. Maybe allow buying other properties. I have about $120,000 and have nothing to do now but buy and sell merch. But overall, a super fun game with great graphics!

    I'm adding possible improvement to the game. I've noticed that you don't get offers in the pawn shop of +100% and more on expensive items from the special auction sections. My shelves are full and now I've reached stalemate, because I won't accept insulting offers or offers under 100% for valuable items. Should be able to take items off shelves and not be stuck with them until sold. What kind of a shop owner cannot rotate his stocks or remove items from the shop shelves to put other items up?

  • Fun game, But... Jul 22, 2019

    By genral 651
    Really enjoyed for a while as a time killer but gets really repetitive and lacks the risk-reward aspect which would make it more fun. It’s basically a slow grind after a while and you never get a big score. The computer bidders basically “know” what’s in the boxes so you never get a big win, it’s just $400 gains at a time once you figure out the logic of how much to pay. Would be nice to occasionally have the big win or big loss, but basically if there is an expensive item in the box, the computer bids it up to where there’s minimal profit so you never get that big profit. It will be one room with 4 large crates and get bid to $2000 then the next with the same crates the bidding goes crazy to $8000. And guess what - the second room has good hidden items. And it’s not like there are clues in the room that would make it more likely in one room than the other. You know there are or are not good hidden items based on the starting bid price and the computer bidding. Would be a lot more fun if there were some rooms where you get that crazy big win or others with big losses or - surprise it turns out that scooter doesn’t work so you lost. Or surprise - that painting is actually rare. Anyway, good time killer but gets repetitive and not as much fun after a few days.

  • Good at first then gets hard. Aug 5, 2019

    By keithbrad80
    This game is pretty good. At least it was in the beginning. In the start of the game prices were low for the lockers so you could make a good amount of money off each locker bought which helped you progress through the game quickly. An example would be they start the bid for 250 you end up buying for 600 and make 1000 which is pretty good. After the third or fourth section of the game the other NPCs bid up the prices so high its nearly impossible to progress through the game without power ups which cost in game gold which you have to buy. An example of this would be the bid starts at 1900 you end up buying for 4000 because the NPCs won’t stop biding then you open the locker and best case scenario get 2500 so you lost money. You can not buy these this and never progress because you have to take a chance and buy some. Every now and then you get one for 1500 and it makes a tiny profit of maybe 100 bucks. The only way to progress in these later levels is to use power ups. Over all a pretty decent game but this mechanic of the game makes it difficult to enjoy in the later levels.

    Fun game but there are way to many ads that play especially when you have the option to choose to watch ads to gain various rewards & sometimes when you win an auction (especially the special ones) the items don't show up in your inventory but you definitely lose the gold bars --- those issues need to be fixed asap

  • Starts out great but quickly becomes a bore! Dec 13, 2018

    By Scubascotty77
    The game started out great and was quite addicting at first but once you get to the higher levels it is almost impossible to profit from the regular unit auctions. AI players the majority of the time run up bids of each unit well over the value of each locker, even when all items in an individual locker are visible and the value of those items are known. The Game generated opponents have no limit of money they can use like in a real auction and the dollar amount of each bid increases as the total value of the bid amount goes up. There is no way to adjust the amount of each bid per unit and you were forced to bid the amount the game requires which increases as the total bid of each unit also increases. In other words there is nothing realistic about this game. Also the game has not been updated to add a new city in almost a year and has become too boring since 9 out of 10 times you lose money at each auction because the AI players run up the value of each locker.

    The game itself is enjoyable but there's way too many advertisements and it kills the experience. You have to watch adverts to do anything, they pop up from nowhere and sometimes freeze then I have to restart the app. Also gold bars should be given out every hour as free bonuses instead of me having to watch more adverts to get some. I've recently reinstalled this game and don't remember this many ads. Please fix it as you have a good game that's being ruined.

  • Game is fun... in the beginning Jan 9, 2019

    By Mamba24boi
    They really push for you to use power ups which can be purchased for real money (surprise surprise) in the later stages of the game as that becomes the only viable way to consistently make money. Once you hit NY the AI will consistently overbid on units and take massive losses (to their AI money.. if you catch my drift) causing you yourself to just completely guess which bid you want to overpay for yourself. Fun game for the first 7 levels and has a lot of potential that is squandered away by this glaring problem along with others like seeing the same items with the exact same value over and over, seeing $600 worth of items outright with two small random boxes only to have the bidding START at $750, pawn shop being almost pointless as no one wants to sell anything for any worthwhile profit while if you try to buy it for that they instantly leave and the ability to really only play three times then having to come back later to restore energy. Fun for the first 7 stages or so so if you are interested in that I’d say go for it, otherwise you’d be better off leaving this alone.

  • Fun but technical ‘bugs’ need work Apr 24, 2019

    By A0687
    This is a fun, addicting game but the technical glitches need attention. It costs 7 energy points to play 1 bidding round, yet at a full recharge your max energy is 20 - why not 21? You also only redeem 1 energy point per 6 minute interval. So, once you have used up your full energy bars (about 10 mins) it takes 42 mins just to play ONE additional round (7/20 versus 3; 20/20), that’s a bit ridiculous IMO. Also, my energy regenerates inconsistently. I went to work at 8am this morning and got home at 6:30 pm (10.5 hrs) and my energy level is at 3/20. I leave my iPad at home connected to WiFi yet I never, ever get full energy regeneration after long periods of being idle. So I haven’t played a single round since 7 am (it’s now 6:45 PM) and I still can’t play because I’m only at 3 energies. This is beyond frustrating. The insane amount of video ads would be forgivable if the game was worth the time. If these issues aren’t fixed soon, this will be an uninstall. I’ve read through the reviews and I just cannot believe that no one else is having these types of frustrations, that’s what’s leading me to believe majority of the 5 star reviews are inaccurate. I hope this review helped someone.

    Too slow to earn gold bars and energy to play. Would like it to be a little faster and give you more time to play. Way too much trying to sell you stuff that costs real cash. Reducing to 1 star. Came back after days and could only do 2 auctions before having to stop and wait. App wants you to spend $ too much. Deleting.

    You have to spend gold on special auctions, and when you win, you don't get the damn items! FOUR times now it did that. The third time happened this morning, so I emailed support. Few hours later I play the game again, go to auto auction and none of the items I won went into my inventory! Deleting game
