  • Fun mind game in exchange for ad revenue May 1, 2020

    By LoCeeBel
    There are so many ads in this game. At the beginning, it’s 1 advertisement for approx. every 3 levels, but as you get to the tougher levels, you start getting ads after every level. The longer you spend on a level, the more likely you are to get an ad afterwards. You’d might as well just watch the ad video to get extra in-game bonuses when you get to around Level 30, because if you’re on one level for more than about 15 seconds, there’s a guaranteed ad afterwards. The first 20 levels are way too easy, totally mindless and boring. Things start picking up around level 21, and it’s pretty challenging and fun around 30. The difficulty curve is a little weird. But if you can survive all the ads on the way to level 30, then it’s a lot of fun beyond there. UPDATE: I’m now on level 90, and the ads are beyond obnoxious. Also, I’ve already earned enough coins to win every rope and background setting. You really need to add more to give players an incentive to work towards. Also, the difficulty pretty much stagnates at level 30. Once you figure out the way things work, it’s very easy. You need more than 3 ropes to a level, and it would be great if they were extremely tangled and took more than 10-15 seconds to work out.

    Repetitive, and power hungry. Interesting concept but too repetitive. And I say this having gotten too bored at level 625, so I gave it a fair go. The app uses 2.5% of my battery per minute which is insane. Yeah, the ads ever 2 or 3 levels are annoying but they're not game killing, just standard for a free game. I am uninstalling as it is too repetitive, an power usage is too high.

  • Good game Jun 13, 2020

    By Djkemskslalxkd
    This is a wonderful mind stimulating game. I love it and was honestly really happy when I found it, because it stimulates a part of the brain our species is not so good at. In genetics, we find most bacteria are actually better than humans at unzipping and re-arranging long dna strands, compounded on themselves forming many knots. Although this game does not have us decoding dna strands, it does get our brains thinking in that direction and could help bring out the future dna scientists in us, just by having a chance to think critically in this field. The only reason I’m not giving a 5 star review is because of the ads. They are generic, and take longer than each puzzle actually takes to complete. I would look for a new ad service, because the one these developers are using to make money, are probably not even paying the developers enough to completely ruin their game. I think developers should also have marketing skills, be creative, maybe create a personal website with all your games and have people advertise there when it brings lots of traffic. Then the developers are in control of the money flow, and how many ads they want in their game. Because I am sure right now there is just an ad service working with them

    First of all, a huge thank you to the developers for not falsely advertising this app! What you see is truly what you get, and nothing less. It is an amusing app good for passing the time. For those of you new to it, you really don’t need to spend extra time watching ads to triple the value of coins. The coins are mainly needed for customizing the ropes/chains or the scenery and for participating in challenges later on. I got everything I needed within the first 100 levels. A word of caution. Sometimes the app does glitch. Nothing major. I’ve had the ropes get stuck before because of a lag. If that happens, just restart the level or close out of the app. Quick easy fix. Likewise, a few times you’ll actually have one of the ropes untangled and solved, but there’s something about the programming that recognize the rope is isolated. Just pick up the rope end and wiggle it so that its lying position changes some then hook the end back into the peg. That should solve the issue.

    I was enticed by this game because the ads promoting it showed exactly what the game was about rather than something completely irrelevant. In the beginning, the game does start quite slow, but does slowly but surely ramp up in difficulty (not too much however). Roughly every three levels depending on completion speed will show an ad, but some are skippable, which is slightly enjoyable. All in all, it's a nice game if you have nothing else to do.

    The learning curve is so slow it's insulting. I played many more levels than I'd like to admit (50), but I just wanted to get to some intricate, fun puzzles. Once they started getting BARELY interesting, the rate of the ads became unbearable. I would never buy the ad free version because when without ads the game interest didn't consistently meet expectations even after 50 levels. The challenge levels are a little better. Lose half the ads and double the difficulty. Even the rewards have ads. 🤢

  • Ads ads and more ads Apr 25, 2020

    By DKBRLBmom
    I really enjoyed playing this game and did so through 200 levels. It’s brilliantly developed with great attention to detail. Whoever made this did superior work. Thank you. The issue I had was the incessant ads. There’s an ad after every level, there are no shortcuts out of the ads (as there were in Wordscapes), and the ads are generally 30-60 seconds long each requiring an interaction to close them. That is far longer than almost every level I played took to complete. I would read emails on my phone, let the dog out, get a glass of water, make a phone call, use the bathroom, let the dog back in, or something in between each level played. After every ten levels there’s a “prize.” An ad plays before the “prize” can be collected, and another ad plays before the next level can be played. Maybe it would be more tolerable if the levels took more time to play. I probably averaged 5-20 seconds for each level. Level 181 was the first level that was somewhat challenging. Maybe 1/4 of the levels between 180 and 200 took me 30 seconds or longer to complete (not including ads). In every game I never used the undo feature or the “SKIP” button. I plan to delete the game after completing this review although I think it’s an intriguing and well-done game. Kudos to the one(s) who made it! Too bad there’s such a brazen effort to get us to either install more games or spend more $$ over and above the high monthly phone bill and the high cost of the phone.

    The idea and simplicity is a lot of fun and is certainly an enjoyable and quick game with unique levels. Unfortunately, there are a copious amount of ads that make the game itself unenjoyable and aggravating. I tend to play the free games and accept the response of ads in a game (99% of the time, those ads are how creators generate revenue for the game from free players). The ads versus game play ratio makes this game not worth the time (for now*).

    SO. MANY. ADS!!! Also, the only challenging games are the trophy games, and you can't retry them. It has a retry button, but it seems just to be there for show. Maybe a bug? Wouldn't be surprised, as there are others: like untangling the chains, but they're still touching, so the program doesn't recognize that they are in fact, untangled.

    I would give this game zero stars but you can't put a comment about the game. Ads, ever three games (which I might add that the game lasts roughly 5 seconds long). This means by the time you've played for ten minutes you've already watched 20 ads of which you can't X out of. You either watch the full ad or back out of the game. I don't recommend this as a free game.

  • Great game for a while, then no new challenges Jul 5, 2020

    By NerdGramma
    I really enjoyed this game and find it both challenging and relaxing. I don’t mind the ads because I understand why they’re there. I never watch ads to gain extra points. The different styles of ropes were worth earning because some made it visually easier to play, but the backgrounds are not worth adding. However, I’ve gotten to level 546 and have noticed that I’m probably replaying the same 20-30 games over and over since level 100 or so. Same ones keep reappearing, so they’re not getting any more difficult. I’ve beaten 21 out of 22 challenges and there haven’t been any more new ones since...maybe level 200? Once I beat that last challenge (which was actually the 8th one, not the latest), I’ll probably stop playing. It’s losing my interest.

  • Great game, too many ads! Apr 14, 2020

    By Befferly
    This game is delightful, but i seriously doubt i will be playing it for long, because it is so ridiculously over come with one stupid ad after another. Every game is relatively short in duration, and with a 30 second ad between ever game, hell, there is much more advertising going on than gaming! I thought the customer was the one you want to please, but i doubt anyone is pleased with dozens and dozens of repetitive ads... it’s beyond logical to think your business model will survive (in spite of your obviously well funded promotional budget)with these boring, repetitive, and ill-produced ads clogging the game flow. You got too greedy on this one, better tone it down or this won’t be your only goodbye! I gave the game five stars, but whoever is in charge of these excessive ads is drowning your future.

  • Awesome, fun, and perhaps problem solving Apr 25, 2020

    By Auntychattyk
    I normally don’t enjoy reviews, but I enjoyed what “Fairer Review” explained. I play plenty of games with ads, so NO BIG DEAL! I “x” through them and play the game. I also NEVER PAY for any tokens or items that supposedly increase the play. I figure, I’m playing for enjoyment and relaxation. I already have a REAL life so if I do not “win” a particular level, so what! I play again until I win. This “tangled” chain game is great fun and , I’m my opinion, increases problem solving skills. One needs to “look” before they “do”; not just “leap in” and hope it works out. The first levels are VERY SIMPLE. Do not dismiss this. The levels do become more challenging. I’m an “oldie” at 63 so perhaps my perspective is more relaxed about achieving perfect scores and such.

  • Great game but... Apr 19, 2020

    By speed cuber
    Wonderful game. Just the kind I like. Starts off super easy, almost too easy. I know it’s to practice the game mechanics and learn the idea but it shouldn’t take that many rounds to learn it. And the ads weren’t that bad in the beginning. You could play a few rounds before the ads came around again, but then when the game started to get challenging there were ads after every round. So it made me think about paying for ad free, then I saw it was 3$... while I liked the game and it was just the sort of puzzle I enjoy I don’t see it as a 3$ value. Sorry. 1$ at best imo. I will probably end up deleting soon if these every round ads continue. It takes away from the game too much. I shouldn’t be watching ads more than I am playing the game. FYI I’m not one of those f2p players. I enjoy supporting devs when it’s a good game and I have a few that I support with monthly passes. Thank you for the effort in making a good solid game.

  • Great game! But ads take over May 2, 2020

    By Vanillangl
    The game itself is awesome! Very mentally satisfying, and challenging!...if it weren’t for the ads. This game is taken over by 90% ads, taking away the little satisfaction from the short levels. The first levels go very quickly, with an ad in between every single level, taking much longer to watch. And they are not pleasant, they are blurry and not relevant to this type of game. You can purchase the removal of ads for a very low price, but the feeling of discouragement from waiting so long to play each level and watching so many ads already makes you not want to purchase anything. I recommend removing the ads on the first 10 levels, because these go by so fast. It is painful to play this game due to ads but the game on it’s own I imagine as highly addictive and worth paying for if the player can get a small interrupted chance to experience it. It is a very unique game, been waiting for something like this for a while!

  • This is NOT how you get me to pay for No Ads Apr 28, 2020

    By JoGraveshifter
    I love this game, but there is something wrong with their ad model. If it were fixed it'd be average for a game in this category; like any of those "___ io" games. After each level you can watch an ad for 3x gold (used to buy chain skins and backgrounds, but nothing functional as it IS a simple game). If you just want to get to the next level without the bonus, you can. Now in most games like this you then have a chance of having to wait through an ad to proceed, which is totally fair- but this game makes you watch one EVERY SINGLE STAGE. I hope it's a glitch, otherwise there is no reason not to watch the ad AND get a bonus. Choosing to skip the bonus and still having to watch the ad is just wasting my time and no way to pressure me into paying $2.99 for No Ads. If you have the time for that, just watch the video each stage for the bonus cuz you'll be waiting 30-40 seconds between levels either way.

    Well, to start, this game is fun & variably challenging. The 1st problem is ADS, countless, annoying, long-lasting ADS!!! However, as you get into higher levels, you'll be sorely disappointed even more! After every level, you have to restart your phone. By then, of course, you've lost what you earned!!!! GGGRRR!!! The alternative is to watch the cursor spin endlessly. Take your pick!! Sickening and maddening bc it real is a fun, unique game!! Oh and yes, I know ads keep it free BUT...

  • Fun at first, but the levels repeat May 6, 2020

    By The Klox
    At first this game is very entertaining. The concept is very clever and fun, and the look of this game is very nice. However, there are two main flaws: 1) ads, there are so many ads in this game. I understand this is a consequence of playing a free game, but even still these ads seem excessive compared to what I've experienced in other games. However, this doesn't ruin the game, as there are ways around this issue. 2) the bigger problem with this game, is that after a certain point, the levels start repeating. This is very frustrating, because the level numbers continue to increase. You think that you will experience new, more complex levels, but you are just playing the same levels over and over again. Some are harder than others but it's very boring. Once you catch on, it's very disappointing.

    If you want to watch ads than this game is for you. I've blown through so many levels with how easy it is. I don't want to put my phone on airplane mode just to play a game. Never made it to hard or harder puzzles before I grew tired of the ads. It's glitchy and doesn't move like regular ropes or chains actually would. It also as of late seems to not register when I've touched it. I used to be able to complete the levels quickly. Now it seems like I have to press a rope twice to drag it slowly.

  • Too many adds Jun 21, 2020

    By Barthurp
    There are adds all over the place and the levels progress really slowly. I wasted like 20 minutes on it and only got to a level that was mildly difficult. The game play is also confusing. There were offers to get coins and no explanation of why you want coins. There is a bar on the left that does something and seems to encourage you to act fast. I nearly deleted the app because I was confused on how to play it (the first several levels are the exact same thing... 2 chains, not intertwined and super easy to beat). It felt like I was stuck on a loading/home page and kept watching adds to try and play the game with no success in my efforts. Only after force quitting the app several times when adds would come up did I realize that I was playing the game and it was just progressing painfully slow and there were a crazy amount of adds... So I deleted it. I wasn’t opposed to buying the no adds version for $3, but I wasn’t convinced it would be a good game from the free version.
