Customer Reviews

All Pocket Gems Games

They have the very worst customer service of ANY game developers. I played Paradise Cove, Tap Zoo and Campus Life for two years and Campus Life Holiday this year, Paradise Cove Holiday since last year, Pet Hotel, and Pet Shop for about a year. I asked them to replaced a 198 star mistake in Tap Zoo and they refused. So after spending money on their games for all that time, I took a stand and deleted all of them and highly suggest that anyone thinking about any Pocket Gems games stop and look elsewhere. Their games frequently crash or refuse to load too! Absolutely the worst gaming company out there. There are too many other companies that are responsive to the paying customers out there. Run as fast as you can. And understand that I frequently complained and wrote scathing reviews but was completely ignored. The only "response" I ever got was an automatic response that is computer generated upon receipt of any correspondence. Save your money and download a game from companies that care if their customers.

Used to be awesome, now its a waste of time

I have been playing this game for 4 years now and honestly, I'll probably delete it. The last update was in Oct 2013, and that was just bug fixes. I can't remember the last time there was an update that actually added anything new. It seems like they said to hell with this game. Once you get to a high enough level, land expansions are absurdly priced, and there isn't anything new to add unless you use stars, which are never won or given. Plus, you can spend wildlife tokens to go on a voyage to receive special rare animals and stars, and every time I go on a voyage, I spend the maximum amount of tokens for a 24 hour voyage, and I've only gotten wildlife tokens and coins, and a star a couple times, not even once have I gotten a rare animal, and I do this every day. Do yourself a favor and delete this if you have it, and run far away if you don't. Pocket gems just doesn't care about this game anymore.

Awesome But One Thing...

I played this game on my first IPod when it first came out. A few months ago I remembered it and downloaded it on my new Apple device. I have played it for a few months and have thoroughly enjoyed it. I now have over 80 animals and have mastered around 17. Up until about a week ago, I had no problems. Now every time I close off of Tap Zoo, I get a notification saying, "Your Zoo has grown! Come place new animals!" Because of this I no longer get the notifications I need such as the ones telling me when my animals are done breeding, when the captain' sark has docked etc. I have yet to discover any other problems. I give them 4 stars for this. I also wish they didn't abandon this game, it rocks!
