Customer Reviews

Was better before the update

While I still love this game and it's very addicting theme song, the update has ruined some aspects of the game for me. To start, I lost all of the characters in my plaza that I had previously earned. There's also no option to turn off the airplane game anymore which never worked for me in the original; the option to turn it off was very appreciated. Some games seem harder, others more fluid. You have to watch an ad after almost every play through whether you click to submit another life or not. I understand this is common in free games, but it was not something the game had prior to the update. I do appreciate that all of the characters now have games.

Latest update killed the game

This game has always been incredibly fun, just a nice silly game to play and unwind. Now it's super stiff, the mechanics aren't smooth at all. And holy crap, ads much?! The ads are out of control and there is no option to buy the game to get rid of them or anything. And my absolute least favorite... the "update" reset everyone's progress and put us all back to zero, seemingly just so they could change the train platform character screen. It's awful. If there isn't a fix in the next week to smooth the game back out and get rid of the crap ton of ads, I'll be deleting. Very sad, cause I've been playing this game for quite awhile now.

Update not helpful

This game was tons of fun and the latest update should have been a great addition, but there are many more inconsistencies with how the game operates. Mini games where you have to swipe screens such as the vomit or mustard one do not work as smoothly anymore. Additionally the new sewing challenge seems to not register as well with touch response.
Overall what was working now seems like it has been revamped but instead of making things better, it made the game frustrating due to game not registering swipes and touches
