Latest update deleted all saved progress


Last edit: Welp. The latest update deleted all my progress, and I apparently have to start all over. I’ve deleted the app.

EDIT: The latest update fixed the crashing issue and allowed us to unveil the centerpiece fountain with in-game currency instead of gems that cost real money. The second sales tank was also a nice touch. THANK YOU!!

(Old review)
I played this game with little issue over the last month and really enjoyed, but recently, I haven't been able to play my game because the app crashes as soon as my tank has loaded. It happened occasionally at first, but it has reached the point where I can't play the game any more. I'm also not a fan of the pay to play model. It's not too bad here--you can make it through the game without spending any real money. However, there are certain items, like a third tank or unveiling this awkwardly placed monument right in the middle of the store that cost so many gems (only obtainable through real money, or watching 20 second ads for 2 gems at a time to reach 1000 gems) that it's honestly not worth trying to get through watching ads. I'd give the game one star because it's unplayable now, but I did enjoy the game while it was working.

Great game most of the time

Koalabear fan

I really enjoy this game especially since being 24 fish from having all of them my game got reset ( I didn’t tell it to😤) just waiting for the fix on so much med to cure the fish it’s ridiculous that an hour after you cure fish they are sick again and I understand more than one dose to cure a fish but 12-15? Come on need to fix that. Also spend 200 gems for a feeder for the fish that spits out food every 10 seconds no wonder my fish kept dying, won’t do that again this time.

Thanks for your feedback! We're making improvements to the game so stay tuned!!

Great as always...


I hav3 been a fan of LDW since VVI. Well excluding virtual families, those were just okay. I had a problem here with the game freezing while selling items, crashing after losing connection with server. I wrote about the issue and I was happily recompensed (way above what should have been given). And the issue is gone. So, thank you LDW for being one of the very few developers that cares about the customers that spend money on their games!
