If I could I would give this game NO STARS. I used to love this game and the graphics but they are not worth the multiple frustrations which occur with playing the game. Quest items are not given even though they show as they would be given when one completes the indicated puzzle. One has to play multiple, multiple games (as many as 50 or 60times) to receive a "quest" item. One also receives the same useless items over and over and over (for example I now have 60 of the awls, 85 glues, 75 scorpions and on and on) and not the ones that are needed. Of course there is always the option of "buying" (at ridiculously high prices) what one needs. Seems like the developers are very greedy. Making any progress is slow and very boring. One has to play the same boards over and over again with little progress being made. EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED with this game and will be deleting it. THIS GAME IS NOT WORTH WASTING ANY MORE OF MY TIME PLAYING!!!!!!

Thank you for ruining my favorite game

Thank you for the gift of almost unlimited playing time on boards that are impossible to complete without spending money. Thank you for also reducing the bombs and helpers that you can make at one time. While the boards are harder and harder to complete the helpers and probability of finding objects lessens. Thank you for ruining my favorite game. Why do you not make this game more enjoyable. Why not at least make boards where they can be completed. I will not spend time playing something I can never complete nor will I spend money to complete every board. Come on fix this please!


This my favorite game in the world ! I am addicted . ♥️♥️♥️ however I just read some of the others posts and agree with ALL of their criticisms re energy, losing earned objects,frustrating lack of progress and being expensive to play . Today I was "blessed" with two curses . NOT fun which is what this game should be more about . I really want to keep playing forever but, even I have my limits.
