Fun extension of Neopets games


I love having a match 3 type of app that earns neopoints, I'm already addicted to these kinds of games! So far I haven't experienced any glitches that others have mentioned. It took me 2 weeks to beat the entire game (currently 120 levels.) Levels 99 and 109 were frustrating but I bought $5 worth of power ups total (1 for 99 and 4 for 109) and I just won't replay them again. If there was a way to beat them without spending money (109 in particular seems impossible if you used up all your freebies from earlier levels,) then I would have no issues with this app. I still enjoy replaying it for neopoints and trying for 3 stars on all levels. I'm mostly on Neopets for the games and this feels like a decent mobile extension of them, just something to play to unwind.

EDIT: After making 3 stars on all but one level (26, grr!) I can say safely warn you that 26 and 109 are the two worst! The rest have been fun to replay.

Pay to play?


The game is fun when it works. There are so many freezes and glitches that it "encourages" you to pay for power ups to make the game easier. My hubby and I both play on my iPad. We're both stuck on level 88 because the game does not give you enough purple ghosts to complete the level without buying another 5 turns. Very underhanded. Neither of us have spent any real money on this and we are not going to. The prizes from various levels eventually show up in your Neopets account, so if that's why you are playing, just be patient and play through the glitches. I wouldn't advise wasting money on this, though. If you use a special ability and the game freezes right when you do it, you've lost a dollar. The Neopets team are notoriously hard to get a hold of.

Edit: I spent the .99 to get past level 88. The game glitched and sent me back to level one (with 239 stars) a few minutes later. The Neopets team has yet to respond and/or fix this.

It's just kinda... ok.


It's really clear Neopets didn't playtest this and then forgot about it. The game is fun and the art is cute, but its really buggy. The notification saying you've won an item for completing a world shows up about halfway through the world instead of at the end, meaning that you may think you've won items but won't until later. Reaching the first star rating on some levels (and only some of the time) the round ends and the game spawns in power ups for every turn you had left. Like I said, it doesn't happen every time either so I'm not convinced its an intended feature... And then there's times like now where I can't even log in. So there's that.

It's just kinda ok. But it's a laggy, buggy mess that's a decent timewaster if you don't set your expectations too high.

Oh and also, be ready to get stuck on levels 23-25 until the end of time.
