Fun, but Needs Improvement
"The Game of Life" is one of my favorite board games and therefore, I love playing it on IOS. However, there are a few areas that could use improvement. For one, towards the end of the game, landing on a "LIFE Tile" will award you becoming a grandparent, even if you never had kids.
Also, if you have more than four children, the extras don't find a seat on the car! Obviously, these are errors, although minor. What I would be more interested to see is additional complexity to what now, after a few rounds, seems almost too simple. For example, as in an older version of the board game, I would like to have the option to buy insurance on my house or car in case of damage. Also, the board could use a slight extension and maybe another path to choose which direction would suit you better. Furthermore, children should have a bigger impact on your life, you shouldn't be forced to marry, and returning to school should definitely cost more than $50,000 for the unbelievable advantage it allows. So, in conclusion, more components to the story would be appreciated to enhance the experience. Other than this, great app!
NOTICE: SINCE WRITING ABOVE, I HAVE DISCOVERED THAT THE SPINNER CAN BE EASILY MANIPULATED TO LAND ON WHATEVER NUMBER YOU CHOOSE. I WON'T EXPLAIN HOW BECAUSE IT SPOILS THE GAME WITH EARNINGS MUCH GREATER THAN COULD BE ACHIEVED NORMALLY. PLEASE MAKE THE SPINNER MORE RANDOM.
Good game, but VERY stereotypical
I think this is game is a fun good game to play with your friends and family and I also think this game is a good representation of the actual game of life, but this game needs a lot of improvements. First off when I was playing I had 5 kids and there was no other vehicle to hold my other child. I think it would be super cute if there was a cart attached to your car to make another piece of transportation. Another thing about this game that needs to change is what color you want your person to be. I am a girl and I can't even have a blue character because it's "not a girl color." Another thing that infuriates me so much is that you can't be married to the same sex. In our modern day society, this is not okay to have the stereotypes be that you can only marry the same sex because now there is a law where you can marry the same sex and it should be in this game.
Crashing Problems (READ DEVS)
I have played this app for a long while but recently the app has been having major problems whenever I would open the app it would crash. I consider that you should fix this for the newer Apple devices so we don't have to redownload (which is what I had to do to finally stop it from crashing) the game and loose all our scores that we earned. Please please please! consider this review and to stop the crashing because I want this to be fixed and not left as a broken app like so many other could be amazing games. Thank you if you do read this I'm hoping that this will be fixed in the next couple of updates, but will understand if you do not even put this review into account ever.
