    Great, at first, but once you get to the bombs, it goes flat. There's just no challenge. I suspect the company also has the car parking game, because you get to build the same village on both. That building side wasn't enough to keep me playing the car parking game, so it won't be enough to keep me playing this one, either. Won't bother complaining about the ads, because it's the same with all free games.

    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.

  • 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

    There is one level that can not be won. Your only love is to slide one pole; any other move results in failure. The pole drops a bomb and then it does NOTHING. The bomb interacts with nothing, never explodes, and you can’t do anything else to proceed. I have watched four ads to skip this level four times (the level comes back every so often). There’s also a level that’s so narrow that balls glitch through the walls and spew out of bounds, causing the level to fail every time. Other than that it’s fine. Just a time waster, these these two levels keep coming back and hey are un-winnable though, so one star off for them.

    Love this game. HOWEVER there are times that it tells me that its not connected to the inet especially when it comes to collecting the bonus things. It must be a glitch because I'm playing the game. I've spent several times playing the same level repeatedly & not getting any where because of this glitch.

    On my Chromebook, the game kept freezing up on me after some ads. Despite having a tethered data connection, while trying to collect "prizes" I received an error message that there was no connection. It's a cute game and fun, that I would play. Only made it to level 23 before giving up. If these issues are fixed, I would love to try it out again.

  • 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.

    I've been waiting for the new update for a while to get more building area and upgrade options and it's finally come through. Based on that, I'm deleting the game. It used to be mind numbingly boring and easy puzzles game, but I enjoyed the building part of the game. Now they just want you to spend money. My once money making hotels are now cabins that earn peanuts. Honestly, don't bother anymore. Its time we boycotted these kind of games!

    I liked the game, but I'm disappointed that I paid for the ad free version yet I still have to watch ads to unlock the upgrades. If the cost was a dollar or two I could understand, but for 3.99 that's a little steep especially since levels are repeated. The new update also deleted all the hotels I had built up to maximum which really angered me as it took a long time.

    Makes you observe, think out a problem, and the potential consequences of incorrect decisions. I have to pull back my originalrating from 5* to 2* review only because there are far too many advertising's or other games between levels. While it is a decent game, PARENTS, BEWARE! The ads are annoying, however, one advertised game is sexist and is on pornographic level. Others, try to stop them to return to the game,and you are taken to Google Play, and cannot get back to your game.

  • I’ve been enjoying this Feb 12, 2020

    By druol
    It is definitely therapeutic, some levels are a bit tricky, but most require just a moment of thought. Not as many ads as some games, but more than I would like. I might pay to remove them, if that’s an option, I forget, but I think it is. It does occasionally freeze up on the screen which is shown when an ad is trying to load. That’s about it, I recommend trying it out! I just lost 100% of the progress needed to get a new skin because of the “ad-load” screen freezing on me. That really should be fixed.

  • Great game! May 7, 2020

    By Linz_25
    Ok I love this game and everything about it! I get distracted real easy and soothes me anyways I unlocked the candy cane skin and I don't know if it's the creator who made this game and choose the ad's but why so long it's not worth it if it's going to be that long of an ad! Also when I was getting the candy cane puller or whatever y'all like to call it why does the percentage has to be slow like come on now! Like for example: 10% oh let's jump up to 12% but when I was in the 90 percents it was at 97% and I'm like really!!!!! But other than that stuff this game is amazing!!!!😊💜

  • Fun and hopefully we will see more Feb 7, 2020

    By Sybergoose
    There are a few features I would like to see such as a level select for previous levels, bonus awards for things like pins left over and blowing up the bucket after it is full (which I like to try to do) and possibly a level editor to make your own. Not to mention some new parts like pins that slide on a track but can’t be removed. The house growing thing is ok but feels like a separate game (unlocked after you play a while)

    Ok so I watched the add of this app and thought hmm looks fun so I went to the App Store and saw it was for 12year olds and higher however I am only 9 turning ten next week I think it is unfair that you people think it is ok to tell us what age this game it for I understand some games are inappropriate for kids who aren’t post to have that game but still you could at least have this game for 9 and older since this app doesn’t look like a inappropriate thingThanks again for your time!!

  • No Lies! Mar 4, 2020

    By BowMuma
    I just need to start by saying... many of these comments are rude and completely uncalled for! I have not experienced any issues! I am grateful the game is EXACTLY what it advertises and not some lame “clickbait” game that is all about building things! I would love to see a bit more background design, maybe more ball color options and of course no one likes ads but otherwise it’s a fun game! Yes I would love a little difficulty increase but nothing that gets so hard to beat that you have to start watching ads to gain boosters or anything! Please remove the bouncing exclamation marks unless something is new or important as they are distracting! Especially for the building part which I do not play! Thank you for not lying to us! Quick update... if I have the sound muted please respect that and mute the ads as well! I cannot keep my phone sound off to play the game because an ad will be loud which will make it impossible to play most of the time 😔

  • Okay, but... May 2, 2020

    By Mrs. Roxy C Moran
    This game is super fun and is a great time killer. I actually enjoy that the levels are easy because it makes gameplay more satisfying. The ads are frequent, but usually skippable after 5 or so seconds. I’m getting to a point where I can’t do anything but play the regular levels. I’ve received all rewards and am so close to finishing what the city building section has to offer. I really like that aspect and should be expanded upon. Hopefully it will be soon because I’m getting to a dead end.

  • I really like it! Feb 7, 2020

    By Maddie star28
    Before I download any games I always like to dig deep into the reviews. The ones for this game were ok, but I decided to try the game anyway. I have to say I have only been playing the game for a day and I absolutely love it! I have been playing it nonstop and it really is addicting. If you like simple yet complex logic games you should play this! My only complaint would be to cut back on the ads a little, but every game has a good share of ads.

  • One Terrible thing (DEVELOPERS, READ!) Feb 9, 2020

    By ThatGOplayer
    It satisfies my needs to play a game like the Garden/Homescapes, Fishdom, and other similar games’s ads. One thing I find infuriating is that this app shows adverts for scam sites. I clicked on one to see what it was, and only to find it was a “Congratulations, you won _____!” scam site. I will spend no money and will not play until this issue is resolved. Several of my friends will it either.

  • 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.

  • 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!💝

  • It’s okay, but.... Feb 7, 2020

    By IamButtholio
    Every 20 seconds there is an ad (it only takes 10-20 seconds to complete a level). I understand the need to generate revenue, but can you please stop spamming me with ads? Always “watch an ad to get more coins,” “watch an ad to get this cool new thing that you have no idea why it would be needed,” “watch an ad to progress to the next level,” “watch an ad to build this building.” Ads! Ads everywhere! And honestly, what’s the point of spamming with ads if the difficulty never changes? A 4 year old could make the same progress I’ve made, in the same amount of time! You want to appeal to the adults that were tired of being scammed by other apps, but you do that by giving us a game for preschoolers. That’s kinda scammy too, when you think about it. Make a game that’s dirt easy, just so you can fill it with spammy ads 🤔

  • Ultra repetitive and no real challenge. Mar 27, 2020

    By Shadowphoenix84
    I played through 300 levels of this game, and when they started super easy, I thought nothing of it, because all puzzle games start off that way, but after 300 levels, it was still just as easy. There is rarely any thought involved, and earning more money or not earning more money nets you the same thirty second ads whether you chose to watch the add or not. With no real challenge after that many levels, the game just isn’t worth playing, anymore. The ads are ultra excessive, and if the game got harder than it started, I might have considered paying to remove them, but sadly that doesn’t happen. It’s not worth going add free, and can only give you a small amount of interest for a short time before you will grow completely bored of it as well.
