  • It’s not worth it Dec 18, 2020

    By Joefoolsnowbro@yahoo
    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.

  • 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.

    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.

    I like this game. It keeps me entertained for hours. For those of you complaining about the ads. Think on this: the game doesn't ask you to buy new lives or gems, and the rewards are generous. There Are places to spend your money within the game, not your wallet. I like that. Watching ads is a small price to pay compared to most other games.

    This game is mindless self indulgence. The ads are rampant. I turned on airplane mode to avoid ads and it just became repetitive. I was presented with the same levels over and over. There was no thought given to my clicks. I could not "fail" a level. The game doesn't get progressively difficult, it just loops. You are given the chance to watch ads to "unlock" new skins however, you HAVE to watch an ad to get them. Its all a sham.

    I understand the maker wants to make money from the advertisers, but the amount of ads are excessive. But the biggest problem ihave with the game is, it frezzes up every few minutes and you can't restart the game to unfreeze it, you just to wait a while before it will reset itself. With that said, it would be a good game if it didn't freeze up every few minutes and you dropped the ads by 30% to 40%.

    This game is too simple and quite annoying. There are ads everywhere! You can't go more than one turn without some ad popping up. The ads are not short and sweet ones either, oh no they're a full 30 second. Don't buy the ad blocker either, it doesn't work.

    ADS, ADS, & MORE ADS... Way too many ads after level 5. I enjoyed it for about 100 levels. Finished 500 levels easily. Once you build out 12 upgraded buildings on your island, you've watched nearly an hour of additional ads. Then nothing. It's over. Great idea, but a poor execution.

  • 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 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)

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • Two broken levels Jun 19, 2020

    By Giygus007
    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.

  • 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 😔

    This is a good game for shutting off your brain, but my main complaints come down to the advertisement for the game. It tells you it's interactive, then takes you right to the download page. It also implies that it would be Much More challenging than it is. Otherwise, good game for just chilling and making things colorful (literally). The only in game complaint I have is that you can't visit old levels, also meaning that you can only proceed to the next level if you get a perfect score

  • 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

    Not in the least bit challenging. I finished 99 levels in two hours most of which were advertisements. This was not the PUZZLE mode that was advertised when I downloaded the app. Make this the child's version. In adults version add nooks and crannies pieces can get stuck on if the wrong pins are moved, bombs that blow a hole in the wall changing the way the pins have to be removed. Add obstacles and black holes to lose pieces in. Fun and challenging. PLEASE inform me when you make a new 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!💝

    As the previous reviews wrote, there are lots of ads. The idea of the game could be potentially fun, but I played over 35 levels and they were all too easy to be interesting, and they're all basically the same . Maybe a small child cound enjoy the game at this level. After almost 40 levels, I played levels with no change or interest and lots of ads, basically I watched more ads than played

    Decent game design but a ridiculous amount of ads. It's also not programmed very well. I lost a level twice because one little dot glitched out of the walls and fell off screen. I did the level the exact same way and it happened again, then on the third time there was no glitch and I passed. So ultimately it's a decent idea that's executed really poorly.
