    This game is fun and all, but seems to ultimately have no point. The levels do not seem to increase in difficulty at all, and you end up with tens/hundreds of thousands of gold, but nothing to really spend it on. Too many levels required between new parts of the building aspect. Certain things say completing puzzles will unlock them, but all I ever get for finishing the puzzles is 300 gold. And way too many ads for what this game ultimately is.
  • It’s not worth it Dec 18, 2020

    I’ve been playing and playing everyday every chance I get when I’m bored and it’s all the same. I’m wondering, does the game get harder? Are there any challenges?? I’m on level 1287 & it’s been the same crap since level 20. It just repeats itself over and over and over but the levels just keep counting up. I’ve watched over 20 hours full of ads on the last few months from this stupid game in between playing and I’m no just waiting for it to go to the next level of difficulty. Does it ever or is it all the same? Did the creators make a great game but got lazy halfway through and just have it restart itself but keep the levels going higher as you play? Like this game says I win each level but I feel like a loser thinking that this just a stupid game that keeps me playing because the creator made an endless game because they were too lazy to add any challenges, difficult puzzles, increasing difficulties of even anything different that Could add an increased joy of playing to this game. Jesus you guys are terrible. Just label this game for kids and then add a cap at like 1000 so they can feel a level of accomplishment for beating this garbage off a game.

    It's ok. Yes, all the levels are essentially all the same and there's no actual challenge, but that's kind of what I enjoy sometimes so maybe mind numbing levels is what you may want if you're gonna play this. Honestly just turn on airplane mode, the presents aren't worth the ad revenue they're making most likely. My issue with the game is how some of the levels are made, there are times where I should be passing a level but due to some gravity or dumb item gets stuck somewhere I fail. Dumb.

    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.

    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! 😊

    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.

    It is a fun game that requires little skill to play, it has lot's of ad's, but that's normal for a free game. When doing challenges and boss levels, you can't scroll up and down which makes it rather annoying on specific ones. Also, on some of the boss levels, 1 or 2 of the small balls would get stuck, making you fail when you pulled the correct pins.
  • 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.

    I actually really enjoy this game for how easy it is, I can just open it and beat a few mindless levels while I’m waiting for something. However, I hate the amount of ads. I paid for no ads and all it removed were the banners and pop ups. That’s honestly ridiculous. I bought the no ads option at least a year ago so I’m not sure if the wording has changed, but I did click ‘restore purchase’ just to see what it would say and it did clearly state ‘removes banners and interstitials’. I definitely don’t remember it saying that when I bought it or I don’t think I would have. If it says that on the menu to purchase it, I recommend you steer clear, it’s honestly a waste of money. I would really like to get what I paid for, which was an ad free experience. At the very least, make the first retry of a level free for those who purchased no ads. It’s still a rip off, but one retry is generally all that’s needed.

    This is a good game to pass the time. The challenges are complete bogus though, which is a big bummer. I've had to get 100% (doing the SAME THING twice in a row, AFTER having to watch an add) at LEAST two times in order to pass each one. It seems like a simple fix, but it's really agitating. Please change this?
  • Wish I could play the game. Jun 30, 2022

    By JediMaster Daddy
    I understand that games have to earn a profit and have to use ads but when the game design has you spend substantially more time watching ads than playing the game itself, it is what I would call a major design flaw! Yes you can pay to remove ads but when I cannot even tell if this is a game I am going to enjoy playing b/c it takes 10 mins to play 5 puzzles b/c of said ads, things are out of hand. I can’t get a feel for if the puzzles get better, harder etc or they just keep using cheap tricks like making the balls randomly bounce out without anyway to control b/c of so much time spent in ads. Then when you fail and retry… guess what? -another ad! If the developers of the game have so much cost overhead to where they have to continue to show an ad with each puzzle instead of every 4-5 like reasonable games do then the company has other issues and would t want to support a failing company! I do not think this is the case though and it’s just greed, them trying to extract every penny possible out of each user. Please change the amount of ads shown, I don’t need to see one for every puzzle or if I choose to restart it b/c of failing! Heck even just do it for the first 20-30 puzzles or so that way I can tell if I would like the game. I have a feeling I would like this a lot if there is proper pacing and difficulty ramp up, but I am not giving companies like this any money when I am watching more ads than playing!

    The game will intentionally glitch/drop a ball so you have to watch an ad to re-try a level. You'll also be bombarded with ads, even if you pay to remove them. The normal levels have basically 0 challenge to them, the only thing that's fun is the challenge levels. I regret paying to remove the ads for this game because it doesn't actually remove them, it just reduces them. This game is a scam, do not pay for ad removal because you'll still get ads forced onto you.
  • Too many ads Jan 27, 2022

    By urlocalcorndogaddict
    I really like this game but it has way too many ads to the point that I’m gonna delete this game. Every single time I’m done with a level, it shows a ad and it’s so annoying. Yes, the ads have a skip button but the first time that I click it the skip button when it shows, it has links behind it and it takes me to the App Store which is beyond annoying. The amount of time I have to close out the ad is about a minute because I click the skip button but then it makes me wait 10 seconds to actually exit the ad. It also shows the same game every single time. The thing is, I already downloaded one of those games (clash royal) but I deleted it because it had way too many ads. And the other thing is that when it shows a ad of a game, that’s not what even happens in the game, they are trying to make you download the game because of something. They make the level look so hard when literally you have to do one move it’s so annoying. We’re not dumb. That’s the problem with all of these games nowadays- they have WAY TOO MANY ADS. This is why no one wants to play these games! And no I’m not paying money to stop showing ads, I should be able to play the game with no ads whatsoever and be happy about it. I was on level30 in a matter of 10 minutes. Yes I like this game but it would be better if all you can do it get rid of the ads without us PAYING MONEY to basically PLAY A VIDEO GAME ! 🙄

    Fun but way too many ads. I paid for"no ads" but still have to wait through them at every turn. In addition, it freezes often. In the puzzles that are longer than the screen, there is no scrolling to see what's coming. The "rewards" one gets for successfully passing levels are pointless. For example, you can get a puzzle piece, but it changes the puzzle sort of randomly. There is no clear way to navigate through the various levels. It's too bad because some of the levels are challenging and fun.
  • It’s a game made to make you watch ads Feb 2, 2022

    By PitneyBlows
    This is what some might call a “relaxing”, where as I might tend toward the word “mindless”. There is little to no challenge to the regular levels, like four to six pins in the puzzle and literally the only way to lose is to not pull any pins at all, or the other more insidious way, which I will come to in just a minute. The other type of levels are “challenge levels” that become available after about every 25 or so regular levels beaten, and you pay with coins earned to open these levels and then you get ONE chance to beat that level, if you don’t succeed, you are then forced to watch a full ad to try it again. Here the insidious part that I mentioned earlier, the physics can be broken so that sometimes a ball will just miss the goal and you have to watch another ad to play the level again and hope it doesn’t just miss again, but it gets even worse, during the challenge levels sometimes a ball will just phase through a solid wall and fall and you don’t even know that you lost for another 15 to 20 seconds because its still falling or something? And it becomes a far too common event the further you get into the game. It’s almost as if its purposeful and not a bug to make you watch more ads. So if you love watching ads, boy is this the game for you!

    This is a fun game so far but I wish I was able to enjoy it fully. I spend more time trying to close ads, or having to restart the app than actually playing the game. I don't mind a commercial here and there but I don't need one after every level played in addition to all the extra stuff. Some ads have the x or >> to close pass the ads but it automatically take you to Google store to download instead of closing and returning me back to the game. There are definitely some improvements needed.
  • Popcore games are all the same Mar 7, 2022

    By PlotePalooza
    The main levels of the game never really increase in challenge, but you have to play them to unlock the challenge levels which are more like the ads for the game you see elsewhere. There are always a ridiculous number of other things you’re “collecting” in this game, puzzle pieces, unlocking different backgrounds, etc and then you have this whole weird side hustle of building these beachfront coin-making investments? Those Max out and then you’re getting lots of coins and have nothing really to spend them on? It just seems like something to make you think this is part of the game but nothing comes of it. My #1 complaint of all popcore games is the RIDICULOUS amount of ads. Won a level that took 5 seconds? ad. Lost a level and want to retry? Retry by watching this ad. Choose not to? Still have to watch an ad. We gave you this prize for completing 5 levels! In order to claim it, you have to watch this ad. The levels take mere seconds to complete, you will spend 5x as much time per level just watching the ad to get to the next level. This is the third popcore game I’ve downloaded and they’re all the same, and it grows boring/old very quickly. I would skip.

    Boringly, stupidly, easy. Looking for a mildly challenging game to pass the time and give you a small bump of accomplishment? Do NOT download this game. So easy it's dumb. If you want lots of ads that are designed to make you accidentally click them when you're trying to skip or end them, and "puzzles" that are difficult to get wrong and only require near-thoughtless tapping on the screen, then go for this game.
  • A few notable issues May 12, 2022

    By Dumb_BitchJuice
    I really like the game, and think it's entertaining, but it could do with some fixes. I've played the game Parking Jam by this app studio too, and found it to be nothing exceptional as well, but still a very pleasant game that's a notch above most awful clickbait crap apps. However, I've noticed that I can complete a challenge level perfectly, but still fail because at the end some of the pieces fly out of the cup under the game's own physics engine. Which is incredibly frustrating, considering that you have to watch an ad every time you retry the level? Sometimes these flukes happen when bombs are added to the mix in the challenge levels too. I feel those levels could do to be a little tighter. Just found a challenge level bug too, where there's a few with so many ball pieces in such a narrow space the camera won't pan far enough to see the pin under the ad? That's absolutely ridiculous. Knocking down the star rating further. :^/ A personal gripe of mine is aesthetic, and means very little, it doesn't affect the star rating I gave at all, it's just- the designs for the ball pieces that are available are so boring? Compared to parking jam's designs I dislike them a lot.

  • 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.
  • Needs more challenging levels. Glitches Jun 5, 2022

    By Bany12
    Play this game all the time and the levels keep repeating. Would like new and more challenging levels. When building, all become the same building when finished. They should have different types of buildings. Could keep them part way finished to have different buildings but can build more if you do that. Also glitches, doing challenge levels and boss levels the game will glitch which causes you to pull the wrong pin and/or close out of the game. Has happened when trying to get a gift in the beginning and lost the chance to get a background. Gets annoying. Only really great part is you do not have to pay with your own money to play this game, that is a huge plus.

    This game is fun and all, but seems to ultimately have no point. The levels do not seem to increase in difficulty at all, and you end up with tens/hundreds of thousands of gold, but nothing to really spend it on. Too many levels required between new parts of the building aspect. Certain things say completing puzzles will unlock them, but all I ever get for finishing the puzzles is 300 gold. And way too many ads for what this game ultimately is.

    It's ok. Yes, all the levels are essentially all the same and there's no actual challenge, but that's kind of what I enjoy sometimes so maybe mind numbing levels is what you may want if you're gonna play this. Honestly just turn on airplane mode, the presents aren't worth the ad revenue they're making most likely. My issue with the game is how some of the levels are made, there are times where I should be passing a level but due to some gravity or dumb item gets stuck somewhere I fail. Dumb.
  • I’m throwing in the towel Oct 12, 2020

    By Eebs99
    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.

    It is a fun game that requires little skill to play, it has lot's of ad's, but that's normal for a free game. When doing challenges and boss levels, you can't scroll up and down which makes it rather annoying on specific ones. Also, on some of the boss levels, 1 or 2 of the small balls would get stuck, making you fail when you pulled the correct pins.
  • 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.
  • Please Improve Jun 24, 2022

    By Lilith646
    I actually really enjoy this game for how easy it is, I can just open it and beat a few mindless levels while I’m waiting for something. However, I hate the amount of ads. I paid for no ads and all it removed were the banners and pop ups. That’s honestly ridiculous. I bought the no ads option at least a year ago so I’m not sure if the wording has changed, but I did click ‘restore purchase’ just to see what it would say and it did clearly state ‘removes banners and interstitials’. I definitely don’t remember it saying that when I bought it or I don’t think I would have. If it says that on the menu to purchase it, I recommend you steer clear, it’s honestly a waste of money. I would really like to get what I paid for, which was an ad free experience. At the very least, make the first retry of a level free for those who purchased no ads. It’s still a rip off, but one retry is generally all that’s needed.

    Just a quick note for people still playing despite all of the ads, the only way I've found to complete the Museum Puzzle pieces without them disappearing is to get them from the bubble gum machine. If you've done all of the challenges and "house building" (Not sure of the purpose of that, btw) you have nothing else to use coins on anyway.
  • Jun 13, 2022

    By Rachael Brabec
    This is a free to play game and it shows. The graphics are basic and there are ads. I'm not mad that they have ads, it's how they make money cuz no one is paying for this game. I'm mad because the ads don't play right lime they don't fit my screen. I can't hit the X button to close the app cuz it's off screen. I have to close the whole game and redo the stage. That's my biggest complaint. Well that and once you get up to lvl 200+ they start to repeat stages.
  • Jun 13, 2022

    By William Chamblin
    This is a good game to pass the time. The challenges are complete bogus though, which is a big bummer. I've had to get 100% (doing the SAME THING twice in a row, AFTER having to watch an add) at LEAST two times in order to pass each one. It seems like a simple fix, but it's really agitating. Please change this?
  • May 12, 2022

    By Bil McConoughey
    Fun but way too many ads. I paid for"no ads" but still have to wait through them at every turn. In addition, it freezes often. In the puzzles that are longer than the screen, there is no scrolling to see what's coming. The "rewards" one gets for successfully passing levels are pointless. For example, you can get a puzzle piece, but it changes the puzzle sort of randomly. There is no clear way to navigate through the various levels. It's too bad because some of the levels are challenging and fun.
  • It’s a game made to make you watch ads Feb 2, 2022

    By PitneyBlows
    This is what some might call a “relaxing”, where as I might tend toward the word “mindless”. There is little to no challenge to the regular levels, like four to six pins in the puzzle and literally the only way to lose is to not pull any pins at all, or the other more insidious way, which I will come to in just a minute. The other type of levels are “challenge levels” that become available after about every 25 or so regular levels beaten, and you pay with coins earned to open these levels and then you get ONE chance to beat that level, if you don’t succeed, you are then forced to watch a full ad to try it again. Here the insidious part that I mentioned earlier, the physics can be broken so that sometimes a ball will just miss the goal and you have to watch another ad to play the level again and hope it doesn’t just miss again, but it gets even worse, during the challenge levels sometimes a ball will just phase through a solid wall and fall and you don’t even know that you lost for another 15 to 20 seconds because its still falling or something? And it becomes a far too common event the further you get into the game. It’s almost as if its purposeful and not a bug to make you watch more ads. So if you love watching ads, boy is this the game for you!

    This is a fun game so far but I wish I was able to enjoy it fully. I spend more time trying to close ads, or having to restart the app than actually playing the game. I don't mind a commercial here and there but I don't need one after every level played in addition to all the extra stuff. Some ads have the x or >> to close pass the ads but it automatically take you to Google store to download instead of closing and returning me back to the game. There are definitely some improvements needed.
  • May 12, 2022

    By Rob Long
    Sooooo ad heavy. You spend more time on ads than you do playing. Seriously, I bet the ad/play ratio is around 65%/35%. And the build houses thing is a little confusing. Other than that...I'll give a couple stars for amusing game play. I made it as far as level 29 before getting so frustrated with the constant barrage of ads that run longer than my game play that I un-installed. At that point the games were still not very challenging.
  • May 3, 2022

    By Tao 413
    Great at first, but now every 1-3 levels I get an ad that won't close out unless I restart the game and do the level over. Sometimes, I get stuck on a level for hours, not because I suck, but because the ads won't quit. Look, I get it, you need your money. But for the love of God, please fix the ads at least. They make your game nigh unplayable.
  • Jun 17, 2022

    By Jason Brown
    Would be a good time killer game while waiting for an appointment or so on. But it seems like every other AD is out of proportion and is overlapping the screen, the (X) to close the AD is not on the screen. At this point the game must be completely closed and restarted.....until the same AD shows up again.... usually within minutes.
  • Super Buggy Still Mar 18, 2022

    By NinjaKitty152
    Now, I seem to be the only person having this issue, but I downloaded this out of pure curiosity and for something mindless to do when I wanna relax. However, half the time I’m playing the game it bugs out, freezes or completely slows down everything on my phone to the point I can’t close the app. It got so bad my phone refused to even turn on after turning it off. I’ve also encountered a bug where it’s not collecting puzzle pieces anymore, but giving me the same pieces over and over without registering it was already collected or showing that the pieces are collected in the puzzles area, and this is only happening with the art museum puzzle pieces as I’ve completed all the other puzzles. I would’ve given this at least 3 stars because of the glitches, but this puzzle bug is super annoying and frustrating simply because I want to complete everything I can and it is not allowing me to.
  • Jun 22, 2022

    By Jill-Marie Jones
    Once again, the ads do not portray the actual game. No starving kids or animals you could "help" by solving the puzzles and moving up levels. Which is kinda why I downloaded it. It's basic and mindless, and not expensive to play. Just ... not really worth the effort.
  • May 6, 2022

    By B. Nails
    Easy, boring, and ads constantly. There is occasionally a boss level that provides a little bit of challenge but that's it - mindless otherwise. And you spend much more time on ads than playing. Ads are fine, it's a free game after all, but imagine watching a TV show and there's a 3 minute ad for every 1 minute of actual show.
  • Wish I could play the game. Jun 30, 2022

    By JediMaster Daddy
    I understand that games have to earn a profit and have to use ads but when the game design has you spend substantially more time watching ads than playing the game itself, it is what I would call a major design flaw! Yes you can pay to remove ads but when I cannot even tell if this is a game I am going to enjoy playing b/c it takes 10 mins to play 5 puzzles b/c of said ads, things are out of hand. I can’t get a feel for if the puzzles get better, harder etc or they just keep using cheap tricks like making the balls randomly bounce out without anyway to control b/c of so much time spent in ads. Then when you fail and retry… guess what? -another ad! If the developers of the game have so much cost overhead to where they have to continue to show an ad with each puzzle instead of every 4-5 like reasonable games do then the company has other issues and would t want to support a failing company! I do not think this is the case though and it’s just greed, them trying to extract every penny possible out of each user. Please change the amount of ads shown, I don’t need to see one for every puzzle or if I choose to restart it b/c of failing! Heck even just do it for the first 20-30 puzzles or so that way I can tell if I would like the game. I have a feeling I would like this a lot if there is proper pacing and difficulty ramp up, but I am not giving companies like this any money when I am watching more ads than playing!
  • Jun 7, 2022

    By Levi
    The game will intentionally glitch/drop a ball so you have to watch an ad to re-try a level. You'll also be bombarded with ads, even if you pay to remove them. The normal levels have basically 0 challenge to them, the only thing that's fun is the challenge levels. I regret paying to remove the ads for this game because it doesn't actually remove them, it just reduces them. This game is a scam, do not pay for ad removal because you'll still get ads forced onto you.
  • Too many ads Jan 27, 2022

    By urlocalcorndogaddict
    I really like this game but it has way too many ads to the point that I’m gonna delete this game. Every single time I’m done with a level, it shows a ad and it’s so annoying. Yes, the ads have a skip button but the first time that I click it the skip button when it shows, it has links behind it and it takes me to the App Store which is beyond annoying. The amount of time I have to close out the ad is about a minute because I click the skip button but then it makes me wait 10 seconds to actually exit the ad. It also shows the same game every single time. The thing is, I already downloaded one of those games (clash royal) but I deleted it because it had way too many ads. And the other thing is that when it shows a ad of a game, that’s not what even happens in the game, they are trying to make you download the game because of something. They make the level look so hard when literally you have to do one move it’s so annoying. We’re not dumb. That’s the problem with all of these games nowadays- they have WAY TOO MANY ADS. This is why no one wants to play these games! And no I’m not paying money to stop showing ads, I should be able to play the game with no ads whatsoever and be happy about it. I was on level30 in a matter of 10 minutes. Yes I like this game but it would be better if all you can do it get rid of the ads without us PAYING MONEY to basically PLAY A VIDEO GAME ! 🙄
  • Popcore games are all the same Mar 7, 2022

    By PlotePalooza
    The main levels of the game never really increase in challenge, but you have to play them to unlock the challenge levels which are more like the ads for the game you see elsewhere. There are always a ridiculous number of other things you’re “collecting” in this game, puzzle pieces, unlocking different backgrounds, etc and then you have this whole weird side hustle of building these beachfront coin-making investments? Those Max out and then you’re getting lots of coins and have nothing really to spend them on? It just seems like something to make you think this is part of the game but nothing comes of it. My #1 complaint of all popcore games is the RIDICULOUS amount of ads. Won a level that took 5 seconds? ad. Lost a level and want to retry? Retry by watching this ad. Choose not to? Still have to watch an ad. We gave you this prize for completing 5 levels! In order to claim it, you have to watch this ad. The levels take mere seconds to complete, you will spend 5x as much time per level just watching the ad to get to the next level. This is the third popcore game I’ve downloaded and they’re all the same, and it grows boring/old very quickly. I would skip.

    By Elias Hilliard
    Boringly, stupidly, easy. Looking for a mildly challenging game to pass the time and give you a small bump of accomplishment? Do NOT download this game. So easy it's dumb. If you want lots of ads that are designed to make you accidentally click them when you're trying to skip or end them, and "puzzles" that are difficult to get wrong and only require near-thoughtless tapping on the screen, then go for this game.
  • A few notable issues May 12, 2022

    By Dumb_BitchJuice
    I really like the game, and think it's entertaining, but it could do with some fixes. I've played the game Parking Jam by this app studio too, and found it to be nothing exceptional as well, but still a very pleasant game that's a notch above most awful clickbait crap apps. However, I've noticed that I can complete a challenge level perfectly, but still fail because at the end some of the pieces fly out of the cup under the game's own physics engine. Which is incredibly frustrating, considering that you have to watch an ad every time you retry the level? Sometimes these flukes happen when bombs are added to the mix in the challenge levels too. I feel those levels could do to be a little tighter. Just found a challenge level bug too, where there's a few with so many ball pieces in such a narrow space the camera won't pan far enough to see the pin under the ad? That's absolutely ridiculous. Knocking down the star rating further. :^/ A personal gripe of mine is aesthetic, and means very little, it doesn't affect the star rating I gave at all, it's just- the designs for the ball pieces that are available are so boring? Compared to parking jam's designs I dislike them a lot.

    The game is stupid easy. A little common sense and you'll pass first try. The ads are over the top. Finish a level, "Want to watch an ad for a bonus?" NO. "OK. Here's an ad." Play 15 seconds, watch 45 seconds of ads. Boss Level? "Here, a puzzle several screens long, we're not going to show you enough of it to be able to get through without watching a bunch of ads." Zero challenge, overabundance of ads, and a bunch of side stuff that has no relation to anything. Don't waste your time.
  • Jun 25, 2022

    By Anthony Gazso
    Games pretty easy. Not much challenge. And the ads are ridiculous. One every other level and they're all long and either require you to sit through them or prompt you to hit about 4 different X's and navigate back to the game from the app store. Not worth the download
  • Jun 19, 2022

    By Brenda Jessie
    Edit to add: Quit playing this game for 5 weeks, just came back to see if it was better - its NOT!! I love the "idea" of this game. But the ads glitch ALL THE TIME! And when you do the challenge levels some of them are rigged so there is NO WAY to win! You can't control your screen, it scrolls by itself as you play, but then some of them just stop scrolling! You can't see the pins, the only pins available to see are ones that shouldn't be pulled! I can't stand games that cheat or are defective!!
  • 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.
