    Recently the Sounds & Music have stopped. I’ve tried toggling back and forth on the settings buttons for both but it doesn’t help. Sounds & volume are fine on everything else in my phone, it’s just my Zen Koi 1 game. It’s no huge deal & certainly doesn’t take away from my huge love for this or my Zen Koi 2. They are both in my most top favorite apps I own. I really enjoy the music though and find it very soothing. I’m kind of missing it and my fishies satisfying little snacking sounds. 😄 Thank you for these lovely games! Update: Thank you SO much! I feel so silly. I hadn’t even noticed that tiny button. ☺️ I must have switched it off when I removed my case to charge my phone. Both of these games are my absolute favorites, and you, the Developers, ROCK!!! Thank you for your time and help. 👍🏻⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    I liked this game sometimes. I can't see myself playing it anymore because all my progress was lost. BUT I would recommend it, it is a cute, easy, time killer...

    I love this game. The only problem I have is that I had this game over a year ago and I just got it back it I don’t remember much about the game. If possible I would like to be able to restart the game. If possible could you please put a restart button in settings. I know this is a weird request since most people complain about apps not saving their progress but I would rather start at the beginning of the game than start at the middle and miss out on the fun in the beginning. Other than that personal problem I think the game is great. It’s not super action packed where you have to be on the game 24/7 or else you miss something. And it’s not boring either. It’s a very fun and relaxing game. Thank you for reading my review.

    Excellent game. Calming, relaxing. Who doesn't like swimming fish, and dragons? Exemplary support staff! Unfortunately, can Gift koi only thru FB not through G friends, & cannot be played offline.
  • AVOID: Ads & IAP & constant crashing Jul 22, 2018

    By player58z
    Zen Koi has had premium currency in-app-purchases (IAP) for as long as I've had the app. A forced update added advertisements which disrupt the flow and kill the zen vibe that was the game's main selling point. Now, the fullscreen ads are making the app constantly crash to desktop. They destroyed their own game in order to bombard it with ads. It's nearly unplayable in its current state. PS: If you can't even load the game, there is no excuse for giving it a rating higher than the lowest possible. A game that can't even be played should get the lowest possible marks. UPDATE: Unfortunately, it turns out that the ads for pearls (rewarded ads) are the ones causing most of the crashing. If the game only crashed when the rewarded ads ran, you could avoid the crashing by not playing the ads and missing out on those pearls. However, the crashes seem to be caused by the game contacting the server, so when the server is flaky, the game crashes constantly whether you avoid rewarded ads or not. LandShark contacted me. "For Zen Koi, you can get rid of interstitial ads with any purchase in the game, even the cheapest but rewarded ads you can still use it to earn pearls." He does not deny that the ads are causing the crashes. He gives no indication that LandShark has any plans to fix it. His only suggestion - that I give his company money for a constantly crashing app full of ads and IAP - would not solve the problem. Caveat emptor.

    05/18: game continues to get buggier and I'm not talking about those in the pond- no consistency note speed of Koi and levels. Koi begin to move glacially slow without power ups despite advancing levels and then for a time to go and one normal speed's like when I first began playing the game I'm on able to account for the reasons for this change back-and-forth in the speed of the koi. -__--------------- Although the game is mostly intuitive and easy to figure out, there are some information gaps that it would be nice to have filled: 1. What are the dragon points for/how can they be used? 2. What is the purpose/benefit of cloning your koi? 3. Can't find purchase option for turning off ads following Zen Koi level achievements. 4. Agree with other review that variety in food collection paths would be nice. 5. 100, 200, etc. pearls to purchase new Koi or egg slots is excessive given the overall slow rates of accumulation (without purchasing, that is). consider lowering please, and/or offer other options for gaining slots (e.g. challenges, bonus or surprise prey capture, random discovery in pond, etc. ) One last note: Play started fine for first couple of weeks but lately game has been freezing up, slowing down (Koi movement/speed), and/or sometimes displaying as "jerky" film.

    It wouldn't even load in the game, i was stuck on the loading screen for hours, and the bar had only filled up half. I closed and reopened the app multiple times but no luck. Is it a bug in the game? Is it my internet? I need answers please, thank you.

    Very calm and relaxing l liked that you can ascend your koi into a dragon and that there's sooooo many koi and dragons to collect the only down side is the koi slots too expensive
  • Apr 3, 2021

    By Lauryn L
    Super calming, only complaint is size of slots for more koi, getting pearls is tedious unless you spend money. Other than that 10/10!

    I just got this game recently and I’m “hooked”-terrible pun intended. It’s very relaxing and fun, but I have just one problem-it seems like in order to even have a decent ‘collection’ of fish you need more slots-slots cost pearls-pearls cost real money, not to mention the fact that once you buy one slot the price goes up in seemingly incriminates of ten. Oh they do have videos you can watch to earn pearls if you don’t want to spend real money (like me, ballin on a budget) but you only get ONE pearl per video. I play plenty of other games that use this same video system and they give out more than just 1 of anything, making it still a bit grindy but not downright impossible. I have tons of baby fish to hatch and no slots for them, so just a suggestion-maybe give at least 3 to 5 pearls per video?

    I'm sorry to say that I've been playing this game for a long time, then suddenly I lose it altogether n have to start all over again. Not fare, and yes it had been saved.
  • Time Consuming Jan 13, 2018

    By Ghguu
    My koi are doing fine right now and I have 3 dragons at this point. Just one issue. In this time there is a zen koi 2 and I tried it out. Now I got a dragon when I expanded my pond twice for my first dragon. In this game though, I have to expand my pond 8 times per dragon. This takes about a 1 1/2 hours of work and is time consuming to get dragons. All I ask is that in the next update, can you make it to where your first koi only needs to get 4 pond expansions to ascend, and all the rest take 8? If you could I would think future players would very much enjoy this game and give it a five star rating. Please respond and thanks for the gift of this game.

    Like the concept, would like if you could design your own pond.

    Itll be easier to give us pearls more than one a day. I dont have money to purchase.

    My sister, one day, found my iPad and she played the game. I got a ton of dragons now that I didn’t have before and I just want to start over so I can get dragons on my own. I tried resetting the game, but I couldn’t because there was no reset button. I tried deleting it as well. Still, It didn’t work. Add a reset button somewhere and you’ll get five stars. Otherwise this game is the best game there is right now and is relaxing and fun. It was hard to get bored from this game - before my sister came along - and I don’t want you change anything ( except for the reset button )

    This game is really soothing, and the concept is wonderful. Breeding fish is exciting and fun to try. My only complaint is that the fish don't have an idle feeding system - so instead you have to level them up manually. It becomes tedious so quickly, and the idea that I might have to do that a hundred times over is ridiculous.

    It's a pretty good game, relaxing. But it gets very repetitive very fast, there's no variation, it just cycles, except you have a different colored fish.
