Fun but can become expensive to play

I like this game a lot, it is the only game that has caught me to become addicted. I played it years ago, then stopped due to life changes, then now got the time again to play, I was very happy to play it again, but now it wasn’t like I remember it. I started to figure out that now, in order to expand and evolve in the game you have to pay money to buy those diamonds, diamonds is really what you need to advance in the game. You earn diamonds here and there but maybe just a few, this is not enought to do the things you have to do to grow the city, to take real steps to grow your city you need diamonds, and a lot of them, and you have to pay cash for them, over and over and over and over and over…. at the end you can be easily paying a couple $100 or more to play this game to its limits. I stopped at $7 … I think I’ll keep looking for other games to play that don't need to make me spend money carelessly. Oh! and one more problem, unistalling doesn’t erase your old city’s data. I tried many tricks to start over with a new tactic for my city but the game doesn’t let you reset. - Boring.

good game but could use some improvements

its a good game but the social network quests are annoying especially when you dont use some of the social networks. I enjoy the game but it needs to offer an easier way of reseting the game if you get stuck.

also make gems easier to obtain, i will never pay cash to advance in a game, and make the energy bar refill faster i dont like playing for 5 minutes then have to wait 40 mins before i can do anything else due to the really slow refill. make the refil about 30sec. for while game is open and then the 2 minutes while away from game

Cons: Energy Refill and Diamonds requirements

Look, this is a very fun game. It’s very fulfilling and a great time filler. However, No one wants to have to pay cash to fulfill goals in a game that should have goals that earn you the supplies that you need anyway. Why make upgrading buildings so energy costly if the energy doesn’t fill respectively as quick? Also, the energy SHOULD refill when a person levels up, but it doesn’t. Another problem is that land expansion should not cost both coins and diamonds. I feel that these issues are all ploys to make people pay cash for a supposedly “free” game. I am noticing that these issues are also the main complaints of all of your gamers, it would be wise to listen up.
