  • This game is really freaking good. Aug 22, 2019

    By iiSerpentKing
    A small fan of the TV show I found this game and thought what the heck, why nkt give it a try. The gameplay is fun and the random lockers keep you guessing, the best part is that the game has real stakes where at any moment you could either lose or gain a massive amount of money which keeps it interesting. The pawn shop update was pretty cool because it gives players the ability to target certain items while the bid on a unit because they can make more profit. The stakes get higher as the game progresses and the leagues made the game even more intense as you push yourself to be more aggressive with your bidding. Not to mention this game doesn’t need wifi connection and still adds your score to league while not online is awesome. My few complaints are that the total amount of energy you have is really small and as you progress further into the game you can only really bid at 2 locations and the cooldown on energy is so long that the next time you get to bid is like three hours down the road. Adding easier way to get energy like being able to buy upgrades to increase your max energy would be nice or at the very least shorten the time it takes you to gain energy. I understand it’s importance since without it you could blow through the entire game in a few days but I still would like energy to be a bit easier to obtain. Thanks :D

    Other versions were better, also a bit of a con that to get extras or get a better vehicle for example, it asks for REAL money at extortionate prices rather than in-game money or at the very least the gold bars you earn very slowly for doing challenges. Very repetitive, same stuff all the time but every now and again you get some Egyptian statue.
  • 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.

    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.

    Loving it at the moment, however there must be a bug with a certain advert as it keeps popping up an add stating double the car space for standard price but when I try to click it it just takes me back to game. Really disappointed as I have put money into the game with the starter pack and the most expensive car upgrade but this pop up carries on happening. Please help me to resolve this as its really ruining my game experience and also everytime it pops up I feel cheated.

    Overall a great game, but way too many ads. The in-app purchases seem to be targeted at young kids and not worth the cost. While there are less pop-up ads then some other games, I feel as though the number of pop-up ads could be reducued and the ads could be more focused giving in-game rewards. The gameplay would really benefit from this sort of change, and the game would still be profitable for the developer.

    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!!

    Very fun and only uses optional ads. My favourite part of the game is the buy for cheap and sell for more. There is lots of different choices to pick so you're always progressing. My only problem is how long to sell your items it's not unbearable but you have to wait a bit to sell them.
  • 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.

    This game has kept me on my toes for about a year now. Reading through other reviews I have notice quite few people dislike the Al but to me that’s sort of part of the challenge. The Al have unlimited money right?! So then the challenge should be to bid like the Al. Save your money. If you notice later on in the game you have to pay huge amounts of money to enter the next stage/level. So if you save double that amount then you won’t be set back as much and also can “bid like the Al in auctions.” Now when I say bid like the Al I don’t mean recklessly either I just mean wisely as if you know what everything is and how much it costs the more items you collect the more items are added to your collection right. So you have a rough idea of the prices. Don’t rush, take your time and be wise when making choices. Also remember the biggest risks result in great rewards. This game is definitely worth it and I would recommend it to anyone.

  • 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 game was decent fun when I got it. The gameplay was fine and you only needed a maximum of 15 minutes a day to get everything done. Well now? The game is completely screwed. I can't play it AT ALL. Everytime I open it, it crashes. I am using a Pixel 4a so running this game should be like breathing to this phone so I don't understand why it won't work. Uninstalling and reinstalling doesn't help either. Even if these issues were gone this game is still, at most, a three star. Don't install.

    By Storm Aki
    No ads get removed when you buy from the store. So sorry I spent money on this game, it says it'll remove ads but I haven't found a single place where ads have been removed, you still have to constantly watch ads. I don't understand why these basic mobile games are charging more for microtransactions than AAA PC and console titles. You also lose your progress in the auctions if something goes wrong at the end of the auction (like watching yet another video to spin) but you lose the money spent.
  • Jul 13, 2021

    By Regi Cide
    Game is simple enough, easy to understand and the UI is fairly clean. The main problem is the sheer amount of ads. I tap to sell 3 things from my shop and get an ad. I just opened the game?! Tone the ads down, it's fast becoming unbearable.
  • 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.

    Crash wars! Can't play the game. When you start it up it crashes. Should be taken down. This has been a issue for months. Devs seem like they don't wanna fix it and will instead hit you with a copy and paste message that lies and tells you they are " working on it"
  • 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.

    Since the developers are begging for a rating here's my thoughts. I first played this game as a joke, expecting to instantly uninstall it, but I ended up liking the game. The game was fine and interesting for me at least, but the ability to watch ads for rewards kept the game exciting because there was less waiting to do and less money to waste. Now they've completely removed my ability to watch ads altogether, the options completely gone. Disappointed, even more boring now, might uninstall.
  • Jul 12, 2021

    By Karl Midgley
    Unremovable Ads within 1 minute of playing so you've got to sit and watch them with no choice. Stops me playing the game. Good game but way to many ads and lagging about 20% of time. Takes way to long to sell something or even research without having to use gold, which is not easy to get unless you pay real cash.

    By David Fockler
    Starts out fine but items never chang as you level up. Cant buy a car unless you spend money, and there are no secret rooms as they say to bid on. I cant give it more than 2. After a while buying the same stuff over and over gets boring.NEEDS AN UPDATE TO PLAY. NO NEW CHALLENGES,NO NEW EXPAND. I GIVE IT 3 MORE DAYS AND IM DUMPING IT. IT GETS BORING AFTER COMPLETING HOUSES AND CHALLENGES.

  • Love it BUT Jan 15, 2018

    By dj2u
    I love the game. It is so like the tv show but they need to fix one frustrating glitch! The game closes on you at different times. You lose everything you bid on and all your cash you just made. Happens quite often so it is really annoying! Need more storage places! Please fix this glitch! Also at the end and no place to go! Would be nice if there was another board!! Update: Still love the game however don’t always get your gold even when you watch the whole movie/ad and download the new game! The previous issue still happens but a lot less than before! Another update: Same glitch when you watch a movie for gold! Don’t always get your deserved gold! Still on the same board! I enjoy it still but going nowhere! I did get a new place for a short while but it was there and gone again! Also only had 2 units and had very little in them. I have enjoyed the Santa stuff.

    Fun game, surprisingly strategic, longer you play the more challenging the logistics. This game just gets better as you move through the levels... ok a couple of months later from the previous comment... even more logic is needed to play.. if you love strategic games but hate being pressured by time lines like me... that is to say, I have a life... the game is for fun.. the longer you play the more you time the game. It's a serious logistics game when you hit 10,000,000 love it
  • Really great game...but... Jul 3, 2019

    By Intellibrute
    I really enjoy playing this game, but there are three things that annoy me most: 1.) The wait times to receive an offer for an item. Some of the higher priced items you sell you have to wait over a day to get an offer for...which I kind of understand, but then if it’s a bad offer, you have to wait the same amount of time for a new offer. That inclines me not to play the game every day, which you figure the developers would want. 2.) Show me the money!: A previous review mentioned an idea where you can see how much money you’re competitors brought to the auction...I second this idea. 3.) Why do the power ups cost so many gold bars? Instead of offering a three pack every single time, why not offer a single power up for 10 gold bars apiece? Other than these three things, I LOVE this game.

    Been playing for a year,its addicting. 12 milllion in bids bucks and on level 43. Ive spent 20 in real money 9 months ago none since. They have made nice improvements. They cut down the waiting time for offers by 75 percent if you watch an add. When free gold sign blinks you can watch an add and get 3 gold bricks instead of 1. I find maybe 1new item a week not fond of that one. Really need more challenges!! Need to add on to the town. I do like the game and may spend a little more real money
  • Tbh I like this game Dec 15, 2018

    By bindisaan
    So I love auction shows they’re just fun. This game is also just that, fun. You start out strong but if you don’t think sortof smart you can drop back down to 500 bucks. But! If you do it the right way or just keep playing you build it back up, going back in the game to replay levels is an excellent way to get more money for those expensive auctions. But some of the auctions consume way too much money for such a let down, it’s understandable and I suppose that just comes with how auctions work. People thinking there’s more there so they keep bidding and you hop on at the end thinking you’re golden but you lose 1300 or something right? Maybe it’s exactly how the developers wanted it or maybe it’s evolved ;) jk great game though just wish some auctions didn’t run to 4.5K.
  • 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.

    Loving it at the moment, however there must be a bug with a certain advert as it keeps popping up an add stating double the car space for standard price but when I try to click it it just takes me back to game. Really disappointed as I have put money into the game with the starter pack and the most expensive car upgrade but this pop up carries on happening. Please help me to resolve this as its really ruining my game experience and also everytime it pops up I feel cheated.

    Very fun and only uses optional ads. My favourite part of the game is the buy for cheap and sell for more. There is lots of different choices to pick so you're always progressing. My only problem is how long to sell your items it's not unbearable but you have to wait a bit to sell them.
  • 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.

    It truly is one of the closest game of a real life pawn broker, well done and ty. But after a few months plus I play offline I can't play the storage with the 1 2 3 stars only the weekly. The game just freezes I hope u can fix this as it will be a waste of time and space to have this game

    Highly addictive but the map doesn't expand past what you see from the very beginning of the game. I've put about 100$ into it thinking once I completed the map another would open up, but sadly that is not the case. It's a shame cuz now are their is to do is what seems like an unlimited amount of mundane tasks.
  • Great game but has its downfalls Feb 18, 2019

    By gjfdfjmmvvnnjyrdvbdgn
    Overall the game is great! Is fun, addicting and requires you to think about what to bid on. Great layout and spectacular gameplay. Now on to the downfalls. The content plays way to fast for the amount the developer is putting out, once you get to the end it can get boring and redundant. The second is the amount of energy it takes to play a level. It takes forever to build up energy and it takes just a few minutes to run it back out again. Without spending a ton of money to keep playing you can’t play more that 3-4 auctions in 6-7 hours. Last but certainly not least, the AI grossly overbidding. In a lot of cases the computer will bit 3-4 thousand dollars over what the auction is worth and you may go 8-10 auctions before you get to purchase a locker, much less make any money on one. That being said, I can’t wait for more content to drop. Fun and addicting game!
  • Lots of fun....but.... Nov 16, 2018

    By Ol_Whatsisname
    Most of the people here have said everything that needs to be said. This is a fun game, but the progression doesn’t make much sense. As you go further in the game the bids start becoming crazy...overbidding 6K on a locker and that’s between two AI. I understand that as you progress the game should get harder. The AI should get more savvy and have more advantages...but overbidding on lockers and blowing 5-10K each bidding session is not savvy. It’s idiotic. Perhaps they should each have a chance to use a power up each locker to give the corresponding AI an advantage...but just letting them bid without any regard to the value of the room is stupid...and yes it doesn’t tend to match the value since I’ve also seen them underbid 2-3K on lockers. Complaints aside though this is a very fun game. I think it’d be cool to add a barter system between players to allow them to trade items from their store...kind of like a bazaar maybe.

    The game started off pretty good but after you've earned enough money to buy all the houses, what else is there to do. It doesn't open the map further so that there are more challenges. To be honest, after weeks of playing it, it starts to become boring. You have to wait hours from listing your items until they are finally sold. You can bypass the wait time by using gold. However, this can work out really expensive. This game is just not worth the time and money.
  • Jul 20, 2021

    By paulmartin2k7
    Other versions were better, also a bit of a con that to get extras or get a better vehicle for example, it asks for REAL money at extortionate prices rather than in-game money or at the very least the gold bars you earn very slowly for doing challenges. Very repetitive, same stuff all the time but every now and again you get some Egyptian statue.

    Overall a great game, but way too many ads. The in-app purchases seem to be targeted at young kids and not worth the cost. While there are less pop-up ads then some other games, I feel as though the number of pop-up ads could be reducued and the ads could be more focused giving in-game rewards. The gameplay would really benefit from this sort of change, and the game would still be profitable for the developer.
  • 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.

    By Cristina Ioana
    It's a fun timekiller, but it's lagging sometimes in all the areas of the game. I wish the rewards were a bit more satisfying and the IAPs were not shoved down my throat every 10 minutes. Also, you should be allowed to buy the cars with gold at least, not only real money.
  • Good at first then gets hard. Aug 5, 2019

    By bskwoodworks
    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.
  • 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.

    Game is simple enough, easy to understand and the UI is fairly clean. The main problem is the sheer amount of ads. I tap to sell 3 things from my shop and get an ad. I just opened the game?! Tone the ads down, it's fast becoming unbearable.
  • 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.

    Since the developers are begging for a rating here's my thoughts. I first played this game as a joke, expecting to instantly uninstall it, but I ended up liking the game. The game was fine and interesting for me at least, but the ability to watch ads for rewards kept the game exciting because there was less waiting to do and less money to waste. Now they've completely removed my ability to watch ads altogether, the options completely gone. Disappointed, even more boring now, might uninstall.
  • Jul 12, 2021

    By Karl Midgley
    Unremovable Ads within 1 minute of playing so you've got to sit and watch them with no choice. Stops me playing the game. Good game but way to many ads and lagging about 20% of time. Takes way to long to sell something or even research without having to use gold, which is not easy to get unless you pay real cash.

    By Holder Godwin
    This game was decent fun when I got it. The gameplay was fine and you only needed a maximum of 15 minutes a day to get everything done. Well now? The game is completely screwed. I can't play it AT ALL. Everytime I open it, it crashes. I am using a Pixel 4a so running this game should be like breathing to this phone so I don't understand why it won't work. Uninstalling and reinstalling doesn't help either. Even if these issues were gone this game is still, at most, a three star. Don't install.
  • Jul 4, 2021

    By Storm Aki
    No ads get removed when you buy from the store. So sorry I spent money on this game, it says it'll remove ads but I haven't found a single place where ads have been removed, you still have to constantly watch ads. I don't understand why these basic mobile games are charging more for microtransactions than AAA PC and console titles. You also lose your progress in the auctions if something goes wrong at the end of the auction (like watching yet another video to spin) but you lose the money spent.
  • 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.

    Crash wars! Can't play the game. When you start it up it crashes. Should be taken down. This has been a issue for months. Devs seem like they don't wanna fix it and will instead hit you with a copy and paste message that lies and tells you they are " working on it"

    Starts out fine but items never chang as you level up. Cant buy a car unless you spend money, and there are no secret rooms as they say to bid on. I cant give it more than 2. After a while buying the same stuff over and over gets boring.NEEDS AN UPDATE TO PLAY. NO NEW CHALLENGES,NO NEW EXPAND. I GIVE IT 3 MORE DAYS AND IM DUMPING IT. IT GETS BORING AFTER COMPLETING HOUSES AND CHALLENGES.

    Been sitting at level 23–27 for ten days completed Miami still won’t move me to next city. Getting very bored. It understanding still another day goes by no moving to another city wasting my gold bars and the storage buildings are all over priced before you bid. Need to do find adjustments to this game. Going to find something better. Update three weeks later no new levels. Game is about as stupid now as the pawn wars it created. Al units are now overpriced before you even start bidding. Haven’t had a positive unit in three weeks. This game is lame. I found much better games from different companies and they listen when their is issues. Don’t waste your time with this game they are rigging it. End up using all your kicks in one day. Make complaints to them either they will have to pull it or do something about it. Stupid. Worst game ever. They updated new levels and said to finish Miami before moving on. I have one Miami 200 freakin Times waiting on new levels. Close the game and get better management. They don’t have a clue

    It likes to make you pay gold for things then it offers you to watch a video to double your value whitch will crash the game. And yes you do still loose the gold even tho I won the storage locker and got nothing out of it. It also forces you to play the area 51 mission for 5 gold twice where I got the same thing both times a $35 sign that both times where a replica! I demand that the developers figure out something to fix this because its completely BS i have to spend my gold when I get nothing
