Fun game but eats up Data

I’ve been playing this game for a bit and it is a lot of fun. I love games that are challenging, not easy. Some levels or items can take awhile to obtain, but that’s the beauty of it. If you are looking for instant gratification or you want a game easy enough for a newborn then this is not the game for you.

The only issue I have is since the last update, you either need to be online or allow it access to your data plan. It will use up the data plan! I normally have it off but online when I am home and I normally play the game at work or when standing in a line. I cannot do that anymore and don not want to spend $100 on a data plan.

For the past 24 hours is has required me to be online so it can download content. It has done this 5 tines. This is absurd! You should not have to be online to play the game and it should not require downloading content 5 times in 24 hours! This really needs to be fixed.

Get rid of the voice

Editing this review to add : DO NOT WATCH THE VIDEOS anymore. They want us to watch a 30 second ad for 1/100 of a really tiny award. Seriously? No more crystals? Developers are discustingly greedy.
When you start the game everything comes easily. As you progress the levels become harder and harder and some especially in the ship and the cave are almost impossible without using bonuses that cost crystals.
After you have to play the same levels over and over to get collection items, you cannot find the chargers to complete the collections. Chargers cost up to 40 crystals ie several dollars each and sometimes you need several. Very, very greedy.

Fantastic Game

Love this game!!!! It's fun, challenging, and not frustrating. Developers give you enough options to win jewels, and prizes. Keep up the great job. This game far exceeds many of the other games out there. Thanks, BJ
