Customer Reviews

Lack of Facebook friends

The game need update playing with friends and sharing cities with each other.

Also it needs update more buildings and maybe more other interesting things.

I gave it 4 stars but in future maybe 5.


Could only watch 3 videos a a day before I get the "you are limited to 10 videos a day" message defiantly need to fix that specially when the in game cash is a big part of the game

Videos need work

Videos says can only watch 10 in 24 hours. 9/15/2015 was only able to watch 6 then message showed only able to watch 10 in 24 hours. 9/16/2015 was only able to watch 2 then message showed only able to watch 10 in 24 hours. Need to fix the videos where can actually watch 10 videos.
