The game is so barren now, used to love it


First of all, there are no updates that make you want to keep playing, and once you get high enough in your level, it takes so long to get to the next one with nothing to keep you interested between them. There’s nothing to keep higher-level players interested, like new updates.

Second, once you buy all the land, you realize how little space there is, you can literally almost see your whole town just by zooming all the way out, for comparison, in the Simpsons tapped out if you have all the land, you can barely see any of you’re town when you zoom out , there’s tons of room.

Third, it’s not just content updates that are lacking, they need to make updates to fix problems in the game, my game frequently crashes, and has horrible lag, even when Its not loading something, I’ll just be scrolling through my town and my game will freeze. It’s like the developers put a lot of work into it when it first came out, a lot of updates, like Christmas and Halloween, then gave up on it and let it crumble to pieces.

I loved the game when it first came out, now I barely use it and it just sits on my home screen, taking up space.

Great game but...


The idea of the game is good, The art is good, But you need to change the tapping , whenever I try to tap on the cloud to give somebody food or to collect the chest on them it most of the time i'll tap on the building behind it several times in a row. Please please please please please fix that. Next the editing mode when you want to move buildings you should allow it so that you can take all the buildings out and then place them one by one if you're trying to redo your base that would really help out a lot. Thanks for reading this , please take these ideas to consideration. Thank you. :-):-) :-) :-):-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)

Needs more to do


Been playing for a month or two. Had issues with crashing, support emailed me and seemed to have it fixed now. Once in a while there’s a glitch with making ketchup, just shows a bunch of numbers and doesn’t do anything. Just have to go to patchy’s world to fix it. Problem now is I’ve got 2 million coins and nothing to do with it. It’ll take years to get enough jelly for the rest of the characters without paying money. Guess I’ll just start playing another build-it game
