Very addicting.

Totally addictive and free!

Once I started this game, I was hooked. I’ve turned other people on to it, and they got hooked as well. You can do quite a lot without spending any real money, although that’s a tempting option. Five dollars in the App Store gets you a lot of those all-important rubies! But I went for a long time before I succumbed to that temptation.
The graphics and sounds are great. At the beginning I ran out of energy frequently, which was frustrating, but that happens less now that I’ve gone up in levels, so my advice is stick with it. The locations are a lot of fun to explore, and I’ve become fond of each one. If you have trouble seeing up close, like I do, I recommend playing on a larger screen or investing in a powerful pair of reading glasses.
