Customer Reviews

Great game, but a few suggestions:

First I wish you could change your own character's type. When you first start the game all you have are prep, nerd and jock. But once you get to the level I'm at and unlock slackers, there are like a zillion different types. I just wish I could change my avatar to something else for a change, like Wallflower, (which honestly describes me in real life.) Another thing: why are the prom/homecoming girls so rare?! I've tried partying with the same combos (dancer/DJ) like 10 times and still no prom/homecoming girls. It would be kinda cool if you could spend a SMALL amour of rings to change the gender of a certain person, with the cost going up the rarer the type and capping at 100 rings. Also I think the cost for buying people from the store are ridiculous. 18,000 rings for a prom girl? They really aren't that special. You can't get the super rare types unless you spend a ton of real money, which your average 14 year old who only gets iTunes gift cards like twice a year doesn't have the money for. Also another thing I just thought of: an A-list button. You can spend like 10 or 20 rings to use it, and it gives you a guaranteed rare type, or make your combo much more likely.


I've had this game for about a year and I love it. It has a legitimate plot that you kind of create as you go and is actually well made in comparison to most games I've tried. One of the few problems I do have is how long some of the quest is and how much some of the items cost. I realize you're trying to increase the chance of people putting a little money into the game 💸 but considering I'm under 18 and most players probably are I don't (and probably wouldn't even if I did) have access to a credit card or iTunes card to pay $99 (gets you about 19,000 rings) to get a "prom queen" (cost 18,000 rings). I don't mind investing money into a game I really enjoy but I wouldn't be willing to invest that much 🙅🏽. I realize partying is the alternative to just buying a classmate but it's a long tedious process that can take a few months for you to get what you want. Some prices are unrealistic for doing things (coin wise) like for example there was a quest involving getting food at a bowling alley which costed like 1000 coins (bish whet?). It wasn't really difficult to spare those 1000 coins but what bowling alley charges that much 💀 must have been some hella good food made by Jesus himself 😭

High School Story

High School Story is an amazing app that almost everyone from high school to third grade should have! It's absolutely amazing! You can collect characters, go on special missions, set yourself up with your crush, and admit rare students to your school! It's so cool and its newest upgrade now gives it a special feature: Extra Credit! Extra Credit is a learning program that helps you learn all sorts of things for high school. I'm only in middle school and I'm so proud to actually know SAT words! It's a great start for high school, college, and maybe even my future job. But I also have an idea for the next upgrade. Maybe when you reach, say, level 15 or maybe 20, if you can actually do that, you can add another category to your character. Like if you're a jock, but you secretly wish you could be a cheerleader, you should be able when you get to a high enough level, to choose another category to add yourself into. Just a thought, but if you could add that, I'd be so cool! Thanks, and I hope you enjoyed this review!
