  • Great game - a few suggestions... May 4, 2020

    By GameReview263
    This developer is amazing and his/her games are fun and probably my favorites in the App Store. It kind of gives a arcade Mortal Kombat/Mavel vs Capcom feel with the button layout. There are somethings to be said though. Sometimes after watching a ad, you get stuck on the MDickie logo and are forced to restart the game. Usually it’s fine but sometimes it will actually send me back to before stages of the game which is a little annoying. Two suggestions I have for the dev. One, bots should have the laws enforced on them too, cause it’s a little angering watching a npc walk around with a gun and the cops don’t care, but when you pick one up they go insane and arrest you. Last suggestion is, updates! Updates keep the game new and fun to play! I haven’t played the game long enough to be bored of it, and it’s certainly not the most new looking game out there. These are just suggestions, you don’t have to listen, but it would be great if you would!

    This is a very enjoyable game. It looks very realistic and the players can see what it feels like when someone is a prisoner. And the thing that I like that if you will do anything bad in the jail, the judge will expand your time in the jail. One other thing, after the update you can't change the character's gender. For that purpose you have to buy the VIP membership. Please remove this thing so I can edit my character's gender other wise I would recommend this game to everyone.

    I like the game a lot but this game is lagging now without us being able to customize our character without having to upgrade to the VIP version of the game I would like to edit my character so I can become a warden of the US Department of Homeland Security which is what the wardens of this game are I would like to be able to have the opportunity to arrest other inmates as an inmate or a warden or a civilian I would like this game to also have security guards that would be part of the Transportation Security Administration part of the US Department of Homeland Security and I would like to be able to have no ads the wardens should have super hero restraints like in the heros game and be able to have a leg gun holster along with a bulletproof vest or reflective vest a helmet either bulletproof or European or even a police uniform cap etc

    They have an ad at the top left of the screen taking up 1/4 of the screen. The mental health system is so horrible for example if u get in a “gunfight” with anyone u have to keep going to sleep through out the fight to keep ur “mental health” up or your character will straight up do what ever it wants leaving u powerless and ready to be killed by whoever ur fighting, and when u sleep it shows an ad that may or may not crash the game, 90% of the time the ad crashes the game for me. the gun play is the worst in history, Don’t ever count on ur shots hitting because they almost never do. The announcements drive you crazy, You’ll be trying to walk to another block to do a objective and their will be an announcement for something you do not care about, whenever somebody is let out from jail it will tell u and it’s sooooo annoying. In conclusion, I’ll enjoy the game a little bit if u don’t have as many ads and just completely dump the mental health system. but that’s just my opinion, A GAME OPINION

    Don't listen to these spoiled brats cry about ads or paying a measly 3 buck to remove them. The game is fun and the creators deserve revenue for the work they put into these silly time wasters. My only complaint is that there should be a bundle that allows you to unlock all the games at once for maybe 9.99 to 15.99 and a life time pass for 30.
  • Super great! Just a few things though. May 12, 2019

    By IIGrahamCrackers
    This is one of, if not my favorite ios game! It’s super addicting and fun! I could play it for hours, and i do. There’s not really anything bad about it, but you guys should update it more often. Suggestions: Maybe add a few more parts of the map outside of the prison. And you should be able to go in the stores just like in School Days! When i read books to get my intelligence up, i lose reputation SOO fast and it’s really annoying. Please make it so you don’t lose SOO much reputations from just reading a book. Or maybe add more things to help you get your intelligence up. This is a big one but it would be cool to be able to play with other players. Maybe add a online mode? That would be really cool. Also, you guys should make it easier to get out of someone’s hold on you. I gets really annoying, sometimes people are holding me for minutes and it’s really annoying because you can’t do ANYTHING. You should make it so if you press A (attack) fast enough, you can get out of their grab. Also, you should make less announcements, it gets pretty annoying lol. Or you should be able to skip peoples so each bubbles faster because if you have been playing this game for a while it does get super annoying because you know what people are saying already.

    It's definitely a great game for what it is. It may be simple but it is challenging and addicting to find methods of surviving the life of an inmate, granted there are some improvements to be made with movement and such but it is overall what I expected from this game
  • Fun but needs work Nov 21, 2019

    Becoming a cop has done nothing I literally can do nothing as a cop a civilian and a cop are the same thing in this game my other problem is the fighting cops can arrest you too easily with little effort Guns do little damage and How can the AI just pop up after I smack them with a pole/knife 15 times? But for me it takes about 10 seconds to get up I Feel like as a cop you should be able to arrest people or more people will respect you Also the ability to fire other cops because cops can arrest you for doing almost nothing the announcements need a rework because in the middle of a fight one of them will pop up and you’ll loose progress and The Ai will get back up or regain health it’s Extremely annoying I have no control over my character as that happens In conclusion 1.) Being a cop needs to be more copish like arresting It just needs a rework 2.) Guns Need a rework The bullets won’t hit and they do little damage 3.) Ais get back up after 20+ Stab wounds and punch me and I’m instantly knocked over and my weapon is stolen 4.) Ais get back up almost instantly while I have to wait 10+ Seconds 5.) There needs to be an Ability to Skip an announcement all Together because they are annoying in fights because the Ai gets up steals my weapon or Regains health when I’m trying to fight them Otherwise it’s a really fun game it just needs tweaking
  • One of the better MDickie games Apr 8, 2021

    By Kevin A! ]~<€€#£+•
    I really like this game and it’s over all pretty interesting. My only problems with it are the editor not being as good as the newer editors where you can put on many different accessories. I wanted to give a guy a blue tie for his guard outfit, but I could only use red. Also it’s kinda annoying having to cycle through a bunch of characters just to get to the one you want to edit. I rather it be like the newer ones with the different tabs based on their role. Also the map is the same to school days, but you can’t go into as many buildings, so it’d be cool if you could go into those. But overall the game is pretty simple to learn and still pretty fun to play

    Hey MDickie what's up the customization, I left the game some time ago and when I left the game it was already awesome, what makes a game important to it's player is the players ability to customize it's character it's like forcing someone to buy and keep something they don't want, No wonder you haven't been getting much good reviews lately and the game is kinda boring now because the only reason I downloaded it back was because I wanted to check for any change I guess that was a bad idea 😒😒👎

    Hey MDickie what's up the customization, I left the game some time ago and when I left the game it was already awesome, what makes a game important to it's player is the players ability to customize it's character it's like forcing someone to buy and keep something they don't want, No wonder you haven't been getting much good reviews lately and the game is kinda boring now because the only reason I downloaded it back was because I wanted to check for any change I guess that was a bad idea 😒😒👎

    By Rockstar Hindustani Gamer
    This game was better a year ago at that time I was playing it straight 3 to 4 hours it was fun,but since I got to know that they made character customization paid after reading some comments i just refuse to download a game whose creator is a money lover than some love from people,this huge mistake will decrease the ammount of people downloading and playing the game like me,we have to refuse downloading so he will know that what big mistake he have done he will get no revenue from ads and then he will get to zero,so everybody review this game 1 star and don't download it at all..,before I changed the character similar to thor and named it as thor also and used to take the hammer and beat everyone it was really fun but now everything is boring and waste of time
  • Jun 19, 2021

    By Yesha
    I used to play this game and it was great. But now you can't costumize your own character even the attributes can't be changed. You'll just get a random character with a random name, attributes, etc. Can't you just get the old update back? :((
  • May 5, 2021

    By Tanu Shree Shah
    As everyone is saying that it was good before because u could customize your characters as u wanted i also played it oveer 3years and at that time it was possible to customize your character and I liked it so pls add that same feature back and at that time it was flying up in popularity as well so add the feature and yes(this is my sisters account)
  • Jun 9, 2021

    By Lewis Winstanley
    Changed from 3 star the main reason is that the customization feature isn't free now but got to pay, if you want to charge then add more things instead of making us pay for what we once had for free. Also add more roles like gang boss,and more interactions etc....then I'll take the rating to 5 star

    I used to love this game when my cousin introduced it to me but now that they updated it and u can't customize ur character like u used to it kinda sucks and call the character are males. Fix that. People are complaining do something about it. That's all I gotta say overall the game is ok
  • Jun 22, 2021

    By Aniyah drake
    Ive seen many reviews that talk about to much adds ever heard of playing without wifi or data :) but the reason i put 1 star is because you have to pay to customize, it wasn't always like that at First we used to be able to customize now we can't idk if you are a money lover or you need it for stuff :'(
  • May 2, 2021

    By Lady B
    This game was so much fun when customized your own character without any upgrades now its boring and it gives charcters that u dont like reapetedly and thats really annoying and the arrests are not fair because the wardens make the arresting noise when its your character but it doesnt when its the others in the game please change that and when your character is the warden it doesnt make the arrests and tells where its supposed to patrol at thats unfair
  • Jul 5, 2021

    By slingshot Channel
    I don't like the game no more because you have to pay change your character and customize it I wish you would bring the old update back so then it would be more funner when you do that I'll change the the Starview to a 5
  • V.I.P is crap now and it’s glitchy May 28, 2021

    By BubbaSparksBlunt
    You used to be able to customize your character any way you wanted but now it doesn’t even let you choose which territory you wanna be in, which gang you wanna be in, and etc. Now to the glitchy part. So it’s not even letting me increase my attributes. Every time I decrease it to increase the other attributes I wanna increase, it continues to say “NO ATTRIBUTES.” Developer definitely needs to fix a few glitches here and there and add a few updates, and boom. It’ll be good again. Other than that, I gave this game a one star review. And I notice that even other people are having the same problem. So the developer needs to fix this ASAP
  • Your Phone Will Crash!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Jan 29, 2020

    By Urantia Satania
    Dear fellow iPhone user, This app will crash your phone. You’ll be playing and then worrying/wondering if your phone will ever work again. PROCEED WITH CAUTION! I repeat, PROCEED WITH CAUTION. Your phone will be down about 5-10 minutes. The power button is useless. You can hold it.....but you’ll just be staring at the frozen game. The screen will dim....that’s when you can expect it to shutdown and start up again. You’ll start from your lock-screen. Everything will work but who wants to play a game that will lock your phone up randomly. Played this game 4 times and it has crashed 2 times. Signing off. Goodnight and God bless.

  • Addicting Aug 8, 2018

    By Deadpool Hard.Time
    I like this game alot. Its really fun and addicting once you start playing. When you assault a warden you go to court and the judge can decide in favor of you or the warden. My character was charged with voyeurism (57 days) and on the inside i was charged with multiple homicides. I received 199 days. Your given a certain amount of days and you really gotta survive make money join a gang if not you'll be taken advantage of. One of the complaint i have is the button glitch. The most common is the running or the taunting. I get frustrated sometimes cause it happens often i wish that could be fixed The constant adds are always get in the way of me having fun. If you cause enough damage to the population some of the inmates or wardens make your character will cry to the point where you cannot function with the buttons at all and it goes on auto pilot that really gets me upset!! That makes me not want to play. But i always find myself coming back to it. I recommend all my friends and family to play and they do. I would pay to do the multiplayer but I'm satisfied with the standard edition.
  • Better than I expected! Aug 14, 2019

    By Cieheart8
    I downloaded this app not really expecting much, but I'm having a ton of fun with it actually. Made a guy and explored the prison, and I was pleasantly surprised. There's a lot of stuff to do and get involved with, you can join gangs, get in fights, even get into a gay relationship, which is cute. Of course the game is a bit buggy, but it works well most of the time. At some point I recommend adding an actual meter for toilet needs, so it just doesn't come up randomly. Also, maybe make it easier to track quests? But overall I'm enjoying the app a lot, even with its flaws here and there. I'd say it's one of the few free games that's worth buying the VIP version of.
  • Hoodies Sep 29, 2019

    By bot4322
    Hey hard time creaters I was wondering if you could allow people to customize their characters as much as they want I love the game I just wish I could have a hat on and put a hoodie over it the the hood up it makes people feel more gangster also could you add a feature where you could make friends by allowing people to choose friends so we don’t get hit so many times as we start playing the game it would also be cool if we could create a gang and have a custom outfit for the whole gang one more thing add it so you can get pets and use them at your own advantage thanks
  • It’s really nice but has some downfalls Sep 7, 2019

    By Makayla L unicorn Miller
    This game is really fun and nice to play and it really saves my brain when I’m bored but some things kinda mess with me. Sometimes even if my character has high health falls and just lays there,another thing is that it takes you a good minute or two to get up which wouldn’t help if I was in a fight. This one doesn’t really bother me much but,if I didn’t even do anything and the officers take me to court and they win, for example when someone takes my things and I take it back. But overall this game is really fun and mat dicky did a amazing job on this game!

    Actually forget the little brats that complain about the ads, just turn on areplane mode on, and ots all fixed, also the game is really fun and funny, and theres no glich or anithing like that, so thats why I leave it a 5 star app.
  • Great game - a few suggestions... May 4, 2020

    By GameReview263
    This developer is amazing and his/her games are fun and probably my favorites in the App Store. It kind of gives a arcade Mortal Kombat/Mavel vs Capcom feel with the button layout. There are somethings to be said though. Sometimes after watching a ad, you get stuck on the MDickie logo and are forced to restart the game. Usually it’s fine but sometimes it will actually send me back to before stages of the game which is a little annoying. Two suggestions I have for the dev. One, bots should have the laws enforced on them too, cause it’s a little angering watching a npc walk around with a gun and the cops don’t care, but when you pick one up they go insane and arrest you. Last suggestion is, updates! Updates keep the game new and fun to play! I haven’t played the game long enough to be bored of it, and it’s certainly not the most new looking game out there. These are just suggestions, you don’t have to listen, but it would be great if you would!

    I like the game a lot but this game is lagging now without us being able to customize our character without having to upgrade to the VIP version of the game I would like to edit my character so I can become a warden of the US Department of Homeland Security which is what the wardens of this game are I would like to be able to have the opportunity to arrest other inmates as an inmate or a warden or a civilian I would like this game to also have security guards that would be part of the Transportation Security Administration part of the US Department of Homeland Security and I would like to be able to have no ads the wardens should have super hero restraints like in the heros game and be able to have a leg gun holster along with a bulletproof vest or reflective vest a helmet either bulletproof or European or even a police uniform cap etc

    I love the retro style graphics and the overall style of the game, the gameplay is hilarious. The character customization is pretty diverse and also cracks me up. The controls are BEYOND annoying and at certain points they disappear from the screen altogether, sometimes your character randomly runs around doing whatever they want and occasionally they randomly embrace NPCs, or when conversations occur and a choice pops up, it automatically chooses whatever it wants. Which is IRRITATING to say the least. The game would be amazing if it wasn’t for the bizarre controls.

    This games really fun but there is one thing that I don't like. It's that when you go to hit or kill someone your health and the yellow bar below it go down way to fast and way to much. But other than that it's a really fun game and you should download it👍👍
  • Fun game Jan 22, 2020

    This game is very fun but sometimes frustrating a cop came up to me and told me something about getting my strength up to 75 and I did he told me he was gonna take a day off my sentence and he did then after he was done talking to be he shots me with a gun one time I was very confused. Also a cop told me to pay him 100$ or he’ll find a way to arrest me I refused and went to east block and I was wanted for Arson or something like that then when I went to court they said I tried starting a fire and I never had anything to do with a fire and I lost the case got a 98 day sentence and a 500$ fine
  • One of the best Mobile games period Oct 26, 2019

    By Hiram Abiff 1333
    I love this game and have been playing it for years. The simplicity of the controls and the fighting keep me coming back. It gets a bit repetitive sometimes because there isn’t much to do beside fight and more Rpg elements or missions or even more areas for the map would be cool but MDicke does everything himself so I don’t mind But My #1 Gripe with this game is the lack of SFX volume controls, THAT SIREN is very loud and annoying. It really ruins the game when Im fighting police. I like to listen to music and play but the siren is too loud. Please add a volume control to aleast lower the sfx volume.
  • great game May 30, 2019

    it’s a great game overall just wish it could go into more detail in some areas .theres really no point in playing a guard of you can’t make arrest , I see an online option but can’t turn it on for some reason , would like to be able to escape the law and have them investigate crimes and as a a guard would like to be able to investigate crimes and as previously stated arrest suspects . other than that it’s really fun and I highly recommend this game for people looking to just past time by or to somebody who wants a decent game to play for hours .
  • Really fun and hilarious. Few issues however. Mar 17, 2019

    By dailey spins are rigged
    I love this game. I love the silliness and randomness. I have a few problems with it though. For one, the characters say that there aren’t wardens in the bathroom, but there are usually 2 or 3. And another thing is that when someone gives me a task and I exit the game before completing the task, when I come back to it later, I can’t always remember what I was supposed to do or who to do it for. So I wish there was some sort of mission UI or menu.

    They have an ad at the top left of the screen taking up 1/4 of the screen. The mental health system is so horrible for example if u get in a “gunfight” with anyone u have to keep going to sleep through out the fight to keep ur “mental health” up or your character will straight up do what ever it wants leaving u powerless and ready to be killed by whoever ur fighting, and when u sleep it shows an ad that may or may not crash the game, 90% of the time the ad crashes the game for me. the gun play is the worst in history, Don’t ever count on ur shots hitting because they almost never do. The announcements drive you crazy, You’ll be trying to walk to another block to do a objective and their will be an announcement for something you do not care about, whenever somebody is let out from jail it will tell u and it’s sooooo annoying. In conclusion, I’ll enjoy the game a little bit if u don’t have as many ads and just completely dump the mental health system. but that’s just my opinion, A GAME OPINION
  • Fun but needs work Nov 21, 2019

    Becoming a cop has done nothing I literally can do nothing as a cop a civilian and a cop are the same thing in this game my other problem is the fighting cops can arrest you too easily with little effort Guns do little damage and How can the AI just pop up after I smack them with a pole/knife 15 times? But for me it takes about 10 seconds to get up I Feel like as a cop you should be able to arrest people or more people will respect you Also the ability to fire other cops because cops can arrest you for doing almost nothing the announcements need a rework because in the middle of a fight one of them will pop up and you’ll loose progress and The Ai will get back up or regain health it’s Extremely annoying I have no control over my character as that happens In conclusion 1.) Being a cop needs to be more copish like arresting It just needs a rework 2.) Guns Need a rework The bullets won’t hit and they do little damage 3.) Ais get back up after 20+ Stab wounds and punch me and I’m instantly knocked over and my weapon is stolen 4.) Ais get back up almost instantly while I have to wait 10+ Seconds 5.) There needs to be an Ability to Skip an announcement all Together because they are annoying in fights because the Ai gets up steals my weapon or Regains health when I’m trying to fight them Otherwise it’s a really fun game it just needs tweaking

    Hey MDickie what's up the customization, I left the game some time ago and when I left the game it was already awesome, what makes a game important to it's player is the players ability to customize it's character it's like forcing someone to buy and keep something they don't want, No wonder you haven't been getting much good reviews lately and the game is kinda boring now because the only reason I downloaded it back was because I wanted to check for any change I guess that was a bad idea 😒😒👎
  • Great game with one huge bug that ruins everything Jul 12, 2019

    By Faris B.
    Game is fun and hilarious, however, there is one bug that pops up out of no where and makes the whole game unplayable simply because you cannot proceed with the story. When the MDICKIE logo pops up before an ad/commercial, that is when the bug kicks in and your game is forever stuck. After the AD is played, the MDICKIE logo will pop up on he screen and will stay there while you hear the gameplay progressing in the background. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to get passed this issue and I’ve played this game on 2 phone with 6 different characters. I’ve had to restart every single time, I want to continue playing, but if I can’t finish my “Hard Time” sentence, and always have to restart with a new character build then it’s wasting my time. Please fix this bug of death
  • Why Oct 19, 2019

    By imnotmakinganame
    I was being attacked by a random guy so I fought back with a gun I had. After hitting him a few times, the gun exploded and the guy I was fighting stopped attacking me for a few. Then a warden grabs me and (please note I was also a warden at the time) says I’m under arrest for attacking another warden. I was confused for a minute because the warden who arrested me was the only other warden in the room and he was far from the explosion. So I look in the corner to see who he’s talking about and the picture is ME. I was arrested for attacking myself. So I go to court and get a life sentence. I had a lot of progress with that character and a large amount of money. I also got all my stats to 100 percent. This was very frustrating for me because the whole fight was just me defending myself. So, if you could please fix this problem that would be great. Thank you for hearing me out.

    Good game but sometimes the program fails. Improve and this game will be better. It also gets very repetitive.

    This game is very good, but it now just makes you pay just to customize a character. It's like having stuff being picked for you which you don't like. I did pay for it, but I don't think it is a very good waste of money because it is just ridiculous.
  • Great game but getting old Jun 21, 2021

    By Joshua Gamer 2
    The game itself is very fun, it’s the first game I’ve played from this developer. However, it needs to be up to date with the gameplay of the newer games. There’s no ability to lose limbs, the map is very small and lots of interactions in the newer games aren’t included. Also, there are things that make it annoying at times such as the rules applying only to you and people walking up to you and attacking you for absolutely no reason. One thing that makes want to add a two star review is that he bothered to go back and force you to pay if you want to make a character but he didn’t add the things I mentioned earlier.

    I hope your game is okay but there is a problem, when the police arrest me but I'm innocent, the police are still on the side, it shouldn't be like that, fix that, there should be no more upgrades so we can play properly please
  • Poor Quality on iPhone Feb 7, 2020

    By Frankish Man
    Just recently switched from Samsung to Apple. So far, I’m overall enjoying Apple a lot better than Samsung. Games are cleaner, faster, and everything about them all is just better than on Samsung. When I re-downloaded my all time favorite game Hard Time, I was extremely unhappy with the poor quality of the game. On top of which, a bug appears at the beginning cutscene every single time I try to customize my own character! So far, my taste in this game has went down extremely. Better optimization for iPhone is needed for a successful game!

    I used to play this game and it was great. But now you can't costumize your own character even the attributes can't be changed. You'll just get a random character with a random name, attributes, etc. Can't you just get the old update back? :((

    By Tanu Shree Shah
    As everyone is saying that it was good before because u could customize your characters as u wanted i also played it oveer 3years and at that time it was possible to customize your character and I liked it so pls add that same feature back and at that time it was flying up in popularity as well so add the feature and yes(this is my sisters account)

    I used to love this game when my cousin introduced it to me but now that they updated it and u can't customize ur character like u used to it kinda sucks and call the character are males. Fix that. People are complaining do something about it. That's all I gotta say overall the game is ok

    By Lady B
    This game was so much fun when customized your own character without any upgrades now its boring and it gives charcters that u dont like reapetedly and thats really annoying and the arrests are not fair because the wardens make the arresting noise when its your character but it doesnt when its the others in the game please change that and when your character is the warden it doesnt make the arrests and tells where its supposed to patrol at thats unfair
  • “Upgrading” Feb 19, 2021

    By userq504
    I’ve been playing this game since I was a little kid with no money playing on their moms phone and I’ve just re downloaded it for the nostalgia and because it’s fun. But now you just can’t create a person to play and as I try to generate a character that’s some what of what I want I can only seem to get white men so please fix this give me African American women, men, white women etc. I shouldn’t have to pay for representation and if that is the case the I’m sorry to say then you’ve lost a long time player.
  • I had to literally repost. Jun 10, 2019

    By Dumdumwannabe
    The rating I made a few days or maybe even a week ago is applied to all of your games. I have realized this over time and I figure you do not like to respond. You may be busy but it is kind of annoying. It has been within a span of a week or so, I would think you would have time unless you really don’t work on your games anymore. It’s fine though, I think you should really fix all the bugs people are telling you to fix though.

  • Customizable characters Jul 1, 2021

    By dolphin reveiws netflix
    Hello, I’ve been playing this game for quite some time now and I want the old game back where it was customizable. I believe that customizing characters should be free. I also, played this game since when the customization of characters were free. In conclusion making us pay for access to this game has made me not want to play it anymore please make it free, like it was before.
  • May 9, 2021

    By Rockstar Hindustani Gamer
    This game was better a year ago at that time I was playing it straight 3 to 4 hours it was fun,but since I got to know that they made character customization paid after reading some comments i just refuse to download a game whose creator is a money lover than some love from people,this huge mistake will decrease the ammount of people downloading and playing the game like me,we have to refuse downloading so he will know that what big mistake he have done he will get no revenue from ads and then he will get to zero,so everybody review this game 1 star and don't download it at all..,before I changed the character similar to thor and named it as thor also and used to take the hammer and beat everyone it was really fun but now everything is boring and waste of time
  • Jun 9, 2021

    By Lewis Winstanley
    Changed from 3 star the main reason is that the customization feature isn't free now but got to pay, if you want to charge then add more things instead of making us pay for what we once had for free. Also add more roles like gang boss,and more interactions etc....then I'll take the rating to 5 star
  • Jun 22, 2021

    By Aniyah drake
    Ive seen many reviews that talk about to much adds ever heard of playing without wifi or data :) but the reason i put 1 star is because you have to pay to customize, it wasn't always like that at First we used to be able to customize now we can't idk if you are a money lover or you need it for stuff :'(

    I don't like the game no more because you have to pay change your character and customize it I wish you would bring the old update back so then it would be more funner when you do that I'll change the the Starview to a 5
  • V.I.P is crap now and it’s glitchy May 28, 2021

    By BubbaSparksBlunt
    You used to be able to customize your character any way you wanted but now it doesn’t even let you choose which territory you wanna be in, which gang you wanna be in, and etc. Now to the glitchy part. So it’s not even letting me increase my attributes. Every time I decrease it to increase the other attributes I wanna increase, it continues to say “NO ATTRIBUTES.” Developer definitely needs to fix a few glitches here and there and add a few updates, and boom. It’ll be good again. Other than that, I gave this game a one star review. And I notice that even other people are having the same problem. So the developer needs to fix this ASAP
  • Your Phone Will Crash!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Jan 29, 2020

    By Urantia Satania
    Dear fellow iPhone user, This app will crash your phone. You’ll be playing and then worrying/wondering if your phone will ever work again. PROCEED WITH CAUTION! I repeat, PROCEED WITH CAUTION. Your phone will be down about 5-10 minutes. The power button is useless. You can hold it.....but you’ll just be staring at the frozen game. The screen will dim....that’s when you can expect it to shutdown and start up again. You’ll start from your lock-screen. Everything will work but who wants to play a game that will lock your phone up randomly. Played this game 4 times and it has crashed 2 times. Signing off. Goodnight and God bless.
  • ugh. Dec 1, 2020

    By Skittle🌈
    i used to play this game some years back and unfortunately the device i had it on went missing, but before all of that we were able to create a character without paying. why did that change? in my opinion tht makes the game fun because you can create a sim of your own and feel connected, but just handing off randoms? no thanks. Also everytime an ad finishes, the sound goes out. i always have to save game and close the application completely. The graphics are too old now and needs a touch up. The game used to be good, but now i don’t know what this is. please do better.

    I had the game before naught vip and I go to restore it says I don’t have it... the games is horrible with out every one wants to fight you and they’re always able to counter your move so you basically almost die and some random will come and finish you you spend most of your time watching adds because you need to sleep and each add is thirty seconds and with having the need to sleep every 2 min it’s just trash my biggest pet peeve is that I naught the vip when it was 5$ and for a okay game at best it’s not worth 3$ now even

    I originally played hard time around 2016 and it was addictive for a while , over the course of the year I stopped playing cause I had to focus more on school . Two years later I decide to play it again and oh boy was it a mistake . The fighter mechanics are substantial worse I’m hitting a guy in front of me and I literally get nothing but air but he hits me from the same position and my character is down and out . What happened to this game ?
