Improved to death
I'll never understand why companies always feel like they have to continually tinker with their perfectly fine products. Here's a great example. This was a wonderful game that had a nice 3D look to it. My grandkids and I played it often. But for some unknown reason Optime decided to 'improve' it. The new version is a faded 2D version of it's former self, and, oh yeah, did I mention the ads? Now when you turn it on you have to wait twice as long while a video advertisement downloads and once you figure out which side of the screen to touch to get it to go away due to a lack of an X, you then have to endure steaming ads all through your game at the bottom of the screen. And the fact that they are so sneaky as to not even tell you that they have decided to go with an ad supported model now in their update announcement makes me think very poorly of Optime. It's their app and they can certainly do with it what they want, but I'll probably be looking for a replacement.
Give us choices.
This new version is much harder to use and, frankly much less fun to play. It would be improved if: 1) we had our choice of color schemes. Some of us with aging eyes find this version much harder to play because the colors are faint. Was that intentional?
2) The game is still too easy. When the game chooses to open a series of eight or 10 consecutive boxes for my turn when a series of two boxes is still available, it is clear the game is "dumbed down."
C'mon Optime. You can do a lot better than this. This game does not meet the quality standard you have set in other games.
My wife was playing this app with our 8-yr old child (note the app is rated 4+) and pop up ads started. The first few were simply for other games, but then a pornographic ad popped up. Completely unacceptable and disgusting. While we were right there to shut it off, I wonder how many kids have been exposed to these images while playing apps from this developer (Optime Software company). This kind of embedded stuff shouldn't be allowed.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
