Good but annoying


It's a really addictive game, if you don't have a lot of spare time then just don't bother. However if your like me and are trying to avoid all the important stuff you should be doing then go for it. There is a lot to do, maybe to much. There are like 50 quests open at one time once you've been playing for a few hours, and nowhere near enough energy to get them done. You don't win enough energy when you complete a part of the game so you end up using gems to get more energy, gems run out fast so then of course you have to either stop playing or buy more gems. This feature could get very expensive because the game is so addictive. All the mini games start off very easy and after a while get super hard, to the point I just can't win, so end up using energy without getting any back.
This game is deffo made well for the game developers, I'm sure they will make a lot of money 😂

Constant Pressure To Puchase Is Offputting....


I have been playing for a year now and it's the onpy game I play on a daily basis. The graphics for the last Halloween event were really hard to see and the crystal thing is an utter joke. You get one each time you level up yet if you want to open a location early it can cost from 250 crystals or more. A blatant rip off. I only ever purchase the £1.99 crystal set and that is only when I find the highway robber crystal that doubles your purchases. They have some bundles of crystals for £100! For a mobile phone game. Outrageous. I really hope they go bankrupt for being so egregiously greedy. Why not offer a free and a paid for version that requires no rip off in game purchases. I hope everyone boycots purchases bigger than £2 and boycotts the game if this continues. Some people have no morals at all.

Potential to be great but nasty push - don’t waste your time on this one


This game has great graphics but the constant push to buy something is getting me to the point where I am thinking of deleting the game. There is a constant barrage of ads for in-app purchases and frankly it is a very slow and boring game if you choose not to - they do everything to get you to spend money. You are also inundated with adverts for other games - not in the way that most apps do where you can choose to click on a game for a reward, but literally by blocking what you are doing all the time. On average an ad comes up every 3-4 minutes and that is insane! So in short - unless you like spending money and enjoy constant interruptions, don’t bother...
