What's New in Version 2.4
Game Center Updates
What a waste of $5!! I bought this app hoping for a great game, but turned out extremely disappointed. I should have known though, the console versions were almost as bad.
The levels are ok, not very good. Nothing you can explore or anything. Such as in the newer lego games where you don't have to stick to the level, and you can just walk around and explore, in this you do exactly as the level says which most of the time is extremly boring. Like what a waste of time "learning" a spell (which is just a movement with your finger) and then spending 10 minutes "practicing" it!
The main reason i bought this was because of year 4. I lost the console version before i ever got to year 4, so i bought this hoping i could play the levels. But guess what? I couldn't because there is a glitch on the battle with Aragon in year 2, so i couldn't play it. So this app is basically $5 worth of some pretty horrible levels from the first two books and movies, which were the worst books in the series! They were still good books, but not as good. Anyway, fix this bug or delete this from the App Store to keep other innocent people from wasting a good $5 bill on this.
Unfortunate waste of time and money.
I totally loved this app at first. Now I'm stuck at the boss battle for year two. I do what the game says and nothing happens. I'm supposed to kill a giant snake and the thing isn't dying. It doesn't even have a life bar to indicate if its stuffed any damage or not. I tried everything I could think of.
*****Note the game will not allow you to progress past the last saved point until you complete the game chapter you are in. Meaningful for me that I can't get any further in the game until I kill the stupid giant snake. *****
Of course when my efforts didnt work I came back here to the App Store to contact support. "Error unable to create new ticket." The e-form to contact support won't work for me. I'm already frustrated and now I'm thinking its convient that a paying customer literally can't complain because you can't contact support. I want my $5 back. Oh wait, can't get it because I can't contact the game makers.
Maybe the game will work for you on your device, but just in case it doesn't I suggest saving your money or spending it some where else.
Worst game ever. Deserves a negative FIVE Stars!!
This app/game should be removed from the app store, and I will explain why below.
First of all you have to nuke the buttons before the game will register any input. Second, the game once sensing input seems always choose a different option then you had selected, excuse me you had "nuked". Third, it constantly changes the language of the instructions so unless you are fluent in 6-8 languages then you should not buy this app. And when you try to go back to set the language back to the one you prefer -- as stated above you are redirected to every option other than the language option. 😖😠😁.
So unless there is a major fix to the multiple major flaws in this app, it should be removed from the app store. This app is causing MAJOR headaches in me and my 6 1/2 yr old son. He refuses to delete the app but keeps on trying to play the app with extreme frustrations.
I do not take any joy in writing an extremely negative review of any app in the app store, and I would prefer to stay quiet but when the level of frustration reached all new heights, I had no option but to write this review.
