Needs updating


Keyboard freezes.

Waste of money at this stage.

Good game but still some bugs to work out


Would get a perfect score but there are some technical issues still needing to be worked out. The major one is the menu slider in the main stable menu does not scroll so if you have more than seven horses currently in work you are unable to see them without having to try and sort them out differently to try and get their names displayed.

Other than that the actual gameplay is very good.



Too many micro transactions. Should've just stuck to pc gaming as they don't do mobile gaming well.
