Customer Reviews


This game takes you all over the place. You never finish a level. You have to purchase rubies daily in order to play for a decent time frame. Each room costs approximately 30 if not more to get in. Very disappointing. This is the first game I've done in app purchases and I'm done. You can spend $50 on rubies. They will double your purchase and still not be able to finish or feel like you're getting anywhere. Not enough rewards or items you can use your coins to purchase. Your daily rewards are always the same and are useless. I have over 70 flowers that can't be used for anything. Even if you use your boots you end up getting items you already have!!! Won't download another G5 game. Spend less time on your storyline then maybe you won't have to charge so much. When you open a new level you get one Rubie.. what am I supposed to do with that. You charge 20 to expel something.... sorry G5 I've read the reviews, given you plenty of chances to offer more back to the players.. I've purchased your super deals and still am unhappy!! You're a fun game but I'll pick something else to play that if I want to play for extended time that won't cost me $20 - $40 per day DONT RECOMMEND!!! Can't get anywhere in the game with out purchasing items!!!!

Pull out your life savings... they want it.

Be prepared to give over your life savings. The one thing that would make this game so much better is better rewards. When you advance an overall level, you get just one Ruby. JUST ONE! That is after you have completed multiple levels at multiple 'sites'. And one, get just one ruby. How the game knows when I forked out some money is beyond me because every time I do it seems like nothing can be accomplished without using your purchase.
My God designers!! At least give a kiss every so often!!!!
Why the designers of these games believe that screwing you out of your money is the way to build their games. Don't they understand that when the pocket gets empty, the game gets boring. BORING!
Some other games have gotten the clue & make the one thing that needs to be purchased given as a reward, and more than just one on some challenges, to keep you interested in the game knowing that the given item will be purchased sooner or later.
LOOK AT HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE PLAYING THE GAME! If they got $5/week from people, they are billionaires by now. GREED!! I don't want to put any more money in their pockets anymore than the pockets of the idiot in the Oval Office.

Having fun....

I love this game. The only reason I'm giving it a low star rating is due to a recent incident with customer service that really left a bad taste in my mouth. I've been playing G5 games for a few years & I've never had anything go unresolved until about a month ago. I was in my collections checking to see which things I needed to collect and apparently my hand or finger brushed against one of the collections & it needed well over 100 rubies. I never would have spent over 100 rubies to finish a collection. Rubies are too expensive & too hard to get. I contacted them immediately when I noticed the rubies missing & knew something like that must have happened. Though they told me that they couldn't do anything about it, nor could they replace the rubies. I told them there should be some sort of confirmation pop up with an OK button for the ones that you're spending rubies on to prevent something such as this from happening like this again. It's not good business practice. If it weren't for the fact that I love the game & I've put so much time into it, I would have deleted it & all the others that I play. Other than this I've never had an issue. I just hope that no one else has to go through this.
