  • Over all, it’s pretty good. Mar 11, 2021

    By Trl1024
    This app could use a few changes. My Dad has this app on his Tablet and I was playing on his tablet and he’s like give it back. I said no and I’m like let me play for a few minutes. He said that I should get it on my own tablet so he downloaded it on my tablet. The app is really cool, but honestly here’s the thing. The app told us that the game was really tricky. I tried it and the levels were extremely easy. My Dad is on level, like approximately 400. I played on his tablet and it seems like when I play, the levels are even easier. I love how there’s like 90 percent game and 10 percent ads. On other games it gets us how it is completely the other way around. If you developers out there are reading this review, please just change this game by making the levels harder. Thank you for reading! 😊

    You reach a level in this engaging game, then comes Delay after Delay because " no adds available " after winning a game and you loose your reward, repetitively. There becomes no point in playing. Furthermore, once you have reached the building pause because of "coming soon ", that never happens. Time to STOP!

    I liked this game for the first 1000 levels - it was neat to see how creative they designed the different levels, but after awhile, they begin to repeat. None is too hard, and that is nice for mindless playing, and admittedly there is something satisfying about watching these pieces drop into the beaker glass. At first I liked building the city and seeing what comes next. But when the (costliest end) buildings begin to cost 232,000 then 500,000, then 1,000,000 tokens to build a house and the rent earned only increases 100 tokens, it will take a month of playing just to earn enough to build another lineup of buildings (I have 12 buildings, and it currently is 2mil tokens to upgrade all, next it will be close to 4mil). It is no longer fun, but a chore. I’ll go to the cheapest end, max out the 20 building types, and call it good and delete the app. I’ve become numb to the ads, but it just means I’ve been game-psychologically conditioned because when they don’t show (claims of No Internet - never true), I get upset because I can’t get bonus points or the rents. That is the sign that it’s time to dump this.
  • Please fix challenge level 97 Oct 22, 2021

    Okay, so there are a lot of comments about the ads in this game, and the lack of increasingly difficult levels. Yes, there are a lot of ads. Yes, the levels are pretty easy and start to repeat again. That being said, I have enjoyed this game for what it is. A simple fun easy game of pulling pins. I have played 3,090 levels. I have retrieved every puzzle piece. I’ve unlocked every ball, theme, stick, & trail. I’ve built every house to level 20, and upgraded every area to max. I’ve unlocked all 120 challenge levels and completed them all….except for one. I have one and only one complaint about this app. Challenge level 97 is impossible. You are given 5 moves to complete it, but it can’t be done in less than 6. This is very devastating for my ocd brain to be so close to completing this game in Its entirety, only to see one lone challenge in red with the word “Failed”. Thus the reason for my 3 star rating. Please fix challenge level 97 so that it can be beat, and so others like me won’t lose sleep at night thinking about the one challenge that got away. Thank you.

    The game is fun, but the levels don’t get any harder and the rewards are superficial at best, only customizing the look of the pins. There’s an entire city building function you can spend coins on or whatever, but there are already so many city building games that it feels repetitive and unnecessary to have it in a game about pulling pins and funneling balls into cups. The city building section feels like it was randomly thrown in so there was some reason to keep the players playing (and to make us keep watching ads for more coins to spend on it) but I feel like that could have been achieved simply by having a level map and making the puzzles a little trickier with each level. And players could watch ads to get access to bonuses that make difficult levels easier, though difficult puzzles should still be conquerable without those bonuses. As it is, I was having fun in the beginning but now I’m getting bored of watching the same ads over and over again just to do the same puzzles over and over again.

    The game is fun, but it’s not challenging enough. The bonus games are challenging, sometimes too much - where you have to figure out how to complete them in the number of moves given - but the other games are not. It becomes very repetitive. Maybe something where you earn more for the fewer moves you use (which doesn’t seem to happen now, but I’m not entirely sure)... I also just played a level (330) where it claimed I failed it, but there was no reason why the order I chose wouldn’t work. That’s very frustrating. The ads are heinous too, and they keep freezing the game. At first I was able to avoid them by clicking the top left, they’d open in the App Store, and I’d just go back and I’d be out of them. Then that stopped working. Also, sometimes they give you the option to earn more points if you watch an ad, but then even if you say no it will still send you a 30 second ad! That’s really bad, like a slap in the face.
  • Fun but annoying Oct 11, 2021

    By lilharoak
    There are extra side games in which you can purchase to play and receive enough incentive in doing so (ie-your not breaking even, your actually winning a bit more than spending to to attempt the level…)however, if there aren’t enough moves in the challenge game you’ve already wasted your coins and will be wasting a lot of time solving an impossible puzzle as well as wasting more time being required to watch ads just to retry it! Super annoying! Ads in any game are annoying, but this one seems to be so flooded, I feel I’m watching them more than playing and it’s the same 5-10 ads. *extra challenge 19 IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH 4 MOVES! It requires 5….please fix this. The first pin that holds the 3 balls already makes for an extra move to be made even if you attempt to pull pins elsewhere before letting the balls loose. It’s called physics. If 2 balls are going to be caught in a “v” another pin is required to free them in order to complete the level.
  • A fairly relaxing game to play Jul 12, 2021

    By J_fawkes_
    As others have pointed, this game is very easy and doesn’t really seem to get harder. I’m currently on level 214 and it’s been a breeze so far. Even so, it’s a nice game to fire up if you’re just relaxing and want something chill and easy to play. My main issue with it is that there are times where, as the balls are all tumbling into the container, a ball or 2 will not make it for some reason and will fall into the void, which causes the game to think you did something wrong and fails the level. This should not be the case, as I have no control over how the balls tumble. A word to the wise for the devs: you should not program your game to blame the player for something out of their control. This is the reason why I cannot give it 5 stars. Other than that, I have no issues.
  • Fun game but... Mar 22, 2020

    By gaming junkie77777777
    I actually really enjoy playing this game. It’s not like the ads that lie to you about pulling pin puzzles, those kind of games would actually seem fun to me and I finally found one. I only have a few complaints, and they’re things that I found as soon as I started playing. 1. What’s with all the ads?? Seriously, after about two-three levels, there’s a 30 second unskippable ad, or if you fail a level, you have to watch a 30 second unskippable ad. This is absolutely ridiculous and it’s not a good way to support the outlook of your game. 2. Watching 30 second unskippable ads just for a skin that I earned? It takes you about 6 levels to get the first skin in the game (which is the broom) which means about 2-3 30 second ads, then I have to watch another 30 second ad. This is so stupid, it makes me want to break my phone in half or just delete the game
  • Love this game, however..... Feb 26, 2020

    By Elmasc
    Ok, so first things first. This game is great. I love it. I do however have one major issue with this game and that is that the ads won’t load and you are left sitting thinking that maybe it will load and you will get your reward. Nope. It’s completely close the game down and restart it. Now, admittedly you have the option to watch the video again after completing the same level. Then, IF it loads you can get your rewards. I hope this is a “bug” that will soon be fixed. Also, add some new graphics or new skins or new wallpaper, something to add a splash like the ads for all these new games that “advertise” the pull pin style gameplay yet you know aren’t. Let’s fix the few bugs and add some cool features and this game will absolutely be unbeatable.

    Too many ads. Even after paying to 'remove' ads, still have to watch them to get the 'reward' after beating so many levels. Not a reward if you have to watch an ad to receive it. Can't beat challenge level 35 because the balls keep going outside of the area where they should t be going. Spots where there is a wall and no pins or open space. Have to watch ad to replay level every time for something that is not my fault.
  • Jan 20, 2022

    By Siobhan Egan
    THIS SEEMS LIKE A SCAM. I paid to make this ad free and there are still 30 second unskippable ads in between levels. I click on the "no ads" button and it says "Error, already purchased." Then a pop up says "Unable to complete purchase due to no wifi or cellular data turned on". Absolute rubbish, they are both on and work fine. I emailed developer, no reply.

    This is not a game but an ad platform. Can't comprehend the 4 star status. No challenging levels & at least 1/3 times I try to do anything I'm given an "error message" telling me that no ads are available AFTER watching an ad & I receive no reward even after enduring yet another insipid ad. Nothing is wrong with my internet nor data connections. It's a bad, boring scam & I refuse to participate. There is nothing to this "game" but a platform for shoving ads down your throat.
  • Jan 20, 2022

    By Celia Gunn-Zaboli
    Got this as a time waster. Purchased ad free version -- still has ads, you just have to click on them to trigger the ad. The problem is the game is designed so you accidentally click the ad probably 1 in 5 times. I know I'm ancient but when I pay for the ad free version, I usually want it to actually be ad free... Levels are too simple and repetitive. Nice visuals and haptic feedback. Wouldn't repurchase.
  • Ads make the game unplayable Feb 11, 2020

    By earthstars
    If you have epilepsy or something that makes you sensitive to flashing lights, it’s better to stay completely on the safe side and not play this. There’s a few recurring ads at the bottom of the screen that flash “notifications” at you very quickly, which was enough to give me a severe headache, so I feel like that would be especially terrible for someone who actually is sensitive to lights like that. I had to keep the bottom of my screen covered the whole time I was playing, since there’s no way to change the ad for something that’s less grating on your eyes. If you tap on them, they don’t actually link you anywhere, so I really don’t get the point. There’s ads between about every level, and at most these levels take ten seconds, so it feels like a constant barrage of the same advertisements. The levels don’t challenge your brain even remotely, and the difficulty of them doesn’t change. I made it to about 70 before I finally gave up on this game. This game isn’t worth your time.
  • Jan 19, 2022

    By Karla Kay
    So. Many. Ads. In a 10 minute period, I played roughly 10 levels for a total of 2 min and 40 seconds of actual game play. Over 7 minutes just in ads. I get ads are necessary but this is absolutely excessive. The game itself seems okay, not super challenging but good for just idly killing time.
  • Jan 18, 2022

    By Walter McCoy
    Creators intentionally mislead you regarding the ads-free experience. The game takes every possible opportunity to either force you to watch ads (without ads free experience) or make you tap on "watch ad" buttons (with the ada free purchase. After each level you gain progress towards a "gift" that you have to watch an ad to receive (even with ads free). There are "challenges" that you have to watch ads to access (again, even if you pay for ads free). SCAM.

    A very simple game that has an ad every other round, 5 seconds of play and 30 seconds of ads... $3.99 to remove ads ???? For what? This isn't even a good time waster. Go back to the drawing board. Not worth the download
  • Jan 22, 2022

    There is no challenge to the puzzles. I have spent twice as much time getting through the ads than actually playing the game. Gave it to level 140 before deciding the game would be a challenge if I were 6. Uninstalling now.
  • Overwhelming, Sexually Suggestive Ads Dec 4, 2021

    By Brett_Roby
    The ads are so overwhelming in this game that they supersede the actual gameplay itself. Not only are there HUGE static ads taking up large portions of the screen between rounds, but the video ads play for far longer than a round takes to play. On top of that, the video ads are very difficult — if not impossible — to skip. Sometimes that means waiting forever for the “x” to appear so it can be closed, and other times it means having an “x” that is impossible to press. Other times, it’s endless sections of video ads where the ad goes on and on and on. Another gem is the ads show very inappropriate subject matter, with nearly nude women with cleavage bursting out of their tops. This is appropriate content for a player under 16 as selected when the game started? What kind of ads would we see if we selected the older option? It’s pretty sad that this passes for acceptable these days. It’s a shame because the game has so much potential.

  • Good game but a lot of adds Aug 11, 2021

    By idna sh
    I love this game is is so fun and challenging! It is just the right amount of tricky and hard! BUT THE ADDSSSSSS!!!!! There is a lot of adds like after every level add o another add like sometimes it feels like the whole games is just ads!!! But I love this game and it is really fun to do when you are bored! And maybe you can make the levels a lil harder! But not much! I think the only things that could make this games better is take out some of the ads and make it a lil more challenging! And I love that you have challenges and stuff but you should not have to pay to enter a challenge!!! And the different kinds of like balls should not be so much money!!! But I love this game and would give it a five out of five!
  • Here’s how to challenge yourself with this game Dec 28, 2021

    By Cshoppell
    I, like many other commentators felt like these games scenarios were too easy. The hard challenges are under the icon that looks like a ribbon. Clicking this icon brings you to at least 100 levels of larger puzzles that challenge you to make decisions with many more options on how the balls will fall with only a limited view of the entire puzzle. The downside is that you have to watch 30 second ads to add points or redo lost levels to have access to these puzzles. So you have to either watch ads or play lots of basically simple puzzles to apply points to the more complex puzzles.

  • Pretty good game Apr 9, 2021

    By martipoo
    As many have said, it doesn’t get harder as you move through the game. I’m in the 200s and still pretty easy. I paid for ads to be removed, which makes it much more enjoyable. One frustrating thing - the FAIL message comes so quickly, it’s impossible to figure out what I’ve done wrong! The message takes over as it’s failing, not after it’s failed. I’m adding this now that I’m in the high 300s - this is soooo boring. I’ve only had one (yes, one) real challenge in the entire game. PLEASE add some challenging levels. And where are the ones you showed in your ads? They looked pretty good. I don’t want to play a mindless, boring game. I’ve been going through the levels with the hope that a challenge would come along.
  • This game is very addictive! Apr 12, 2021

    By younkm1
    Game play is very simple. Takes less than 10 seconds per level. I've noticed that some levels play differently depending on which theme you have selected. Some cups hold less than others so if not all objects fit into the cup, change the theme and you will hit 100% and win. Problem: Random balls fall out of cup: sometimes a ball will fly out of the cup even if you have played perfectly. Play again the same exact same way and win without a problem. Update request: 1. Please add more building options in the town. I have reached capacity and have almost $2,000,000 coins and nothing more to buy. 2. Inconsistent play: sometimes balls fall out of the cup and cause level to fail... This is expected, but then sometimes the balls fall out of the cup and the level completes successfully. 3. Sometimes balls fall out of structure from unexpected places. Seemingly closed corners leak balls to cause level to fail. 4. It would be kind of fun of the tilt of the device helps get balls to where they need to be. Thank you!

    I liked this game for the first 1000 levels - it was neat to see how creative they designed the different levels, but after awhile, they begin to repeat. None is too hard, and that is nice for mindless playing, and admittedly there is something satisfying about watching these pieces drop into the beaker glass. At first I liked building the city and seeing what comes next. But when the (costliest end) buildings begin to cost 232,000 then 500,000, then 1,000,000 tokens to build a house and the rent earned only increases 100 tokens, it will take a month of playing just to earn enough to build another lineup of buildings (I have 12 buildings, and it currently is 2mil tokens to upgrade all, next it will be close to 4mil). It is no longer fun, but a chore. I’ll go to the cheapest end, max out the 20 building types, and call it good and delete the app. I’ve become numb to the ads, but it just means I’ve been game-psychologically conditioned because when they don’t show (claims of No Internet - never true), I get upset because I can’t get bonus points or the rents. That is the sign that it’s time to dump this.
  • Please fix challenge level 97 Oct 22, 2021

    By Booaloo
    Okay, so there are a lot of comments about the ads in this game, and the lack of increasingly difficult levels. Yes, there are a lot of ads. Yes, the levels are pretty easy and start to repeat again. That being said, I have enjoyed this game for what it is. A simple fun easy game of pulling pins. I have played 3,090 levels. I have retrieved every puzzle piece. I’ve unlocked every ball, theme, stick, & trail. I’ve built every house to level 20, and upgraded every area to max. I’ve unlocked all 120 challenge levels and completed them all….except for one. I have one and only one complaint about this app. Challenge level 97 is impossible. You are given 5 moves to complete it, but it can’t be done in less than 6. This is very devastating for my ocd brain to be so close to completing this game in Its entirety, only to see one lone challenge in red with the word “Failed”. Thus the reason for my 3 star rating. Please fix challenge level 97 so that it can be beat, and so others like me won’t lose sleep at night thinking about the one challenge that got away. Thank you.

    The game is fun, but the levels don’t get any harder and the rewards are superficial at best, only customizing the look of the pins. There’s an entire city building function you can spend coins on or whatever, but there are already so many city building games that it feels repetitive and unnecessary to have it in a game about pulling pins and funneling balls into cups. The city building section feels like it was randomly thrown in so there was some reason to keep the players playing (and to make us keep watching ads for more coins to spend on it) but I feel like that could have been achieved simply by having a level map and making the puzzles a little trickier with each level. And players could watch ads to get access to bonuses that make difficult levels easier, though difficult puzzles should still be conquerable without those bonuses. As it is, I was having fun in the beginning but now I’m getting bored of watching the same ads over and over again just to do the same puzzles over and over again.
  • Not challenging enough Dec 29, 2020

    By Solarbear16
    The game is fun, but it’s not challenging enough. The bonus games are challenging, sometimes too much - where you have to figure out how to complete them in the number of moves given - but the other games are not. It becomes very repetitive. Maybe something where you earn more for the fewer moves you use (which doesn’t seem to happen now, but I’m not entirely sure)... I also just played a level (330) where it claimed I failed it, but there was no reason why the order I chose wouldn’t work. That’s very frustrating. The ads are heinous too, and they keep freezing the game. At first I was able to avoid them by clicking the top left, they’d open in the App Store, and I’d just go back and I’d be out of them. Then that stopped working. Also, sometimes they give you the option to earn more points if you watch an ad, but then even if you say no it will still send you a 30 second ad! That’s really bad, like a slap in the face.
  • Fun but annoying Oct 11, 2021

    By lilharoak
    There are extra side games in which you can purchase to play and receive enough incentive in doing so (ie-your not breaking even, your actually winning a bit more than spending to to attempt the level…)however, if there aren’t enough moves in the challenge game you’ve already wasted your coins and will be wasting a lot of time solving an impossible puzzle as well as wasting more time being required to watch ads just to retry it! Super annoying! Ads in any game are annoying, but this one seems to be so flooded, I feel I’m watching them more than playing and it’s the same 5-10 ads. *extra challenge 19 IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH 4 MOVES! It requires 5….please fix this. The first pin that holds the 3 balls already makes for an extra move to be made even if you attempt to pull pins elsewhere before letting the balls loose. It’s called physics. If 2 balls are going to be caught in a “v” another pin is required to free them in order to complete the level.
  • Fun game but... Mar 22, 2020

    By gaming junkie77777777
    I actually really enjoy playing this game. It’s not like the ads that lie to you about pulling pin puzzles, those kind of games would actually seem fun to me and I finally found one. I only have a few complaints, and they’re things that I found as soon as I started playing. 1. What’s with all the ads?? Seriously, after about two-three levels, there’s a 30 second unskippable ad, or if you fail a level, you have to watch a 30 second unskippable ad. This is absolutely ridiculous and it’s not a good way to support the outlook of your game. 2. Watching 30 second unskippable ads just for a skin that I earned? It takes you about 6 levels to get the first skin in the game (which is the broom) which means about 2-3 30 second ads, then I have to watch another 30 second ad. This is so stupid, it makes me want to break my phone in half or just delete the game
  • Too easy Nov 14, 2021

    By GDNP
    I’ve played through about 400 levels in less than a week (most take just seconds) and have come to the conclusion they just aren’t going to get any harder. Only the challenge levels have any real difficulty. There are literally puzzles you can pull the pin in any other and still win at levels in the 300’s. 90% of them have only a single outlet at the bottom, so if you use the principle “pull the bottom pin last” you’re most of the way to winning. It’s kind of like Simon Says: conceptually easy, but if you’re not paying attention you may screw up occasionally. Kind of like avoiding the ads. (Pet peeve: even with sound turned off in the ap it still comes on in the ads, and half have no way to mute. So if you’re playing in public you need to mute your phone. A common, annoying issue.)

    A little frustrating there's too many things that interfere with the game. Like ads and the fact that you have to watch ads to spin that are lengthy. The game seems to be about how many ads you can endure.

    Fun and relaxing. I llikke the "feel" of it. While I dislike the ads, I understand why they are there. What I can't stand is that about every third one locks the game. I have to get out of it and reenter. Then I get the same puzzle to doo again.
  • Not bad but more of a ‘relaxing’ activity than a game Feb 24, 2020

    By snoogans122
    I was hoping the levels would get tougher as you go but they really don’t. I’m on level 100 something and haven’t had to redo a level or use a life or whatever. It’s not so much a challenging or brain teaser game as it should be, more of a relaxing thing to do for fun. Which isn’t a bad thing, but when you combine that with the fact there’s an ad every couple levels, it makes it seem like they made it easy on purpose so you beat more levels and ergo have to watch more ads. Sometimes I watch one cause I beat a level then I have to watch another when the I click to start the next level. If they made it more challenging and didn’t force me to watch 30 second ads every few mins, it would def be a 5/5 game.

    Got this as a time waster. Purchased ad free version -- still has ads, you just have to click on them to trigger the ad. The problem is the game is designed so you accidentally click the ad probably 1 in 5 times. I know I'm ancient but when I pay for the ad free version, I usually want it to actually be ad free... Levels are too simple and repetitive. Nice visuals and haptic feedback. Wouldn't repurchase.

    There is no challenge to the puzzles. I have spent twice as much time getting through the ads than actually playing the game. Gave it to level 140 before deciding the game would be a challenge if I were 6. Uninstalling now.
  • Gets REALLY boring👎🏻 Feb 13, 2020

    By Kitty lover 🐱❤️
    Well let’s see here………… It was about 3:45pm when I found this game in the App Store. I thought to myself, “wow, this looks really fun!!” I decided to get the game. I sat and played it until 4:00 and I absolutely LOVED it and thought it was super fun!💖💗💕 Then, I got off of my IPad and did some things until I got back onto my iPad at 7:45pm. Since I loved pull the pin SO much❤️, I got back onto it to play it. I stared at the game, not very interested in it anymore. It is just—— this game gets very boring. I think they need to create a game that gets more challenging and is not so BORING AND EASY. Doing the same thing over and over is so boring sometimes. Also, there IS WAY TOO MANY OF THESE GAMES WITH SO MANY ADDS. PLEASE QUIT THE ADDS!! I HATE IT, I HATE IT, I HATE IT!! Guys, this is just my opinion. You guys might love it!!💖💖💖 It is super fun in the beginning and this might be an awesome game for you!! Thanks for reading my opinion!💝

    Too many ads. Even after paying to 'remove' ads, still have to watch them to get the 'reward' after beating so many levels. Not a reward if you have to watch an ad to receive it. Can't beat challenge level 35 because the balls keep going outside of the area where they should t be going. Spots where there is a wall and no pins or open space. Have to watch ad to replay level every time for something that is not my fault.

    By Siobhan Egan
    THIS SEEMS LIKE A SCAM. I paid to make this ad free and there are still 30 second unskippable ads in between levels. I click on the "no ads" button and it says "Error, already purchased." Then a pop up says "Unable to complete purchase due to no wifi or cellular data turned on". Absolute rubbish, they are both on and work fine. I emailed developer, no reply.

    This is not a game but an ad platform. Can't comprehend the 4 star status. No challenging levels & at least 1/3 times I try to do anything I'm given an "error message" telling me that no ads are available AFTER watching an ad & I receive no reward even after enduring yet another insipid ad. Nothing is wrong with my internet nor data connections. It's a bad, boring scam & I refuse to participate. There is nothing to this "game" but a platform for shoving ads down your throat.
  • Ads make the game unplayable Feb 11, 2020

    By earthstars
    If you have epilepsy or something that makes you sensitive to flashing lights, it’s better to stay completely on the safe side and not play this. There’s a few recurring ads at the bottom of the screen that flash “notifications” at you very quickly, which was enough to give me a severe headache, so I feel like that would be especially terrible for someone who actually is sensitive to lights like that. I had to keep the bottom of my screen covered the whole time I was playing, since there’s no way to change the ad for something that’s less grating on your eyes. If you tap on them, they don’t actually link you anywhere, so I really don’t get the point. There’s ads between about every level, and at most these levels take ten seconds, so it feels like a constant barrage of the same advertisements. The levels don’t challenge your brain even remotely, and the difficulty of them doesn’t change. I made it to about 70 before I finally gave up on this game. This game isn’t worth your time.

    So. Many. Ads. In a 10 minute period, I played roughly 10 levels for a total of 2 min and 40 seconds of actual game play. Over 7 minutes just in ads. I get ads are necessary but this is absolutely excessive. The game itself seems okay, not super challenging but good for just idly killing time.
  • Jan 18, 2022

    By Walter McCoy
    Creators intentionally mislead you regarding the ads-free experience. The game takes every possible opportunity to either force you to watch ads (without ads free experience) or make you tap on "watch ad" buttons (with the ada free purchase. After each level you gain progress towards a "gift" that you have to watch an ad to receive (even with ads free). There are "challenges" that you have to watch ads to access (again, even if you pay for ads free). SCAM.
  • Jan 18, 2022

    By Ruben Clowers
    A very simple game that has an ad every other round, 5 seconds of play and 30 seconds of ads... $3.99 to remove ads ???? For what? This isn't even a good time waster. Go back to the drawing board. Not worth the download
  • Overwhelming, Sexually Suggestive Ads Dec 4, 2021

    By Brett_Roby
    The ads are so overwhelming in this game that they supersede the actual gameplay itself. Not only are there HUGE static ads taking up large portions of the screen between rounds, but the video ads play for far longer than a round takes to play. On top of that, the video ads are very difficult — if not impossible — to skip. Sometimes that means waiting forever for the “x” to appear so it can be closed, and other times it means having an “x” that is impossible to press. Other times, it’s endless sections of video ads where the ad goes on and on and on. Another gem is the ads show very inappropriate subject matter, with nearly nude women with cleavage bursting out of their tops. This is appropriate content for a player under 16 as selected when the game started? What kind of ads would we see if we selected the older option? It’s pretty sad that this passes for acceptable these days. It’s a shame because the game has so much potential.

    I really don't think it's necessary to show an ad after EVERY level. The game is OK but I am sick and tired of all the ads. I realize that ads are necessary but this is ridiculous!!! I would have given no stars but it wouldn't allow me too.
  • Jan 18, 2022

    By mark yanchik
    As plenty have mentioned, lots of ads. The game concept was neat and hoping for a challenge, but after about 30 minutes of playing (29 of which was watching ads), the game doesn't get challenging. Just a way to get you to click on ads in my opinion.
