Customer Reviews


This was quite a fun game to play. It is great for teaching kids the art of supply and demand as well as patience. There are several flaws though. Some of the time it takes to do things is just excessive, especially towards the end of the game. It really made me just want to delete the game entirely. I was very disappointed when I never got to see my favorite characters from the movie. Since updates are relatively nonexistent, it seems as though I will never see them. The gems are ridiculous. I considered buying a few, until I saw the price. Not a good way to generate sales. It really seems as though you have forgotten about this game, now that the newness and immediate popularity has faded. That's really not a good way to keep fans.

While this is a good game for the first part of it, it's very dull towards the end. No new updates seem to be on the way, and I wouldn't be optimistic about their content. If you aren't going to maintain the game, then you need to give it a definitive ending or just delete it. It was entertaining while it lasted, but if nothing changes, it will just be a frustrating waste of my time.

Tedious, repetitive, and slow

This app is extremely slow to load (far slower than any other app I have on my 4th gen iPod touch, including some that use much more memory). Also, the production rates are very slow. So you either have to stare at the screen while you do nothing for several minutes at a time, or you have to keep coming back to the game (waiting a long time each time for it to load).
The is fairly interesting to start out as you get things started. Near the end of the game, the play gets monotonously repetitive, and takes weeks to finish, if you keep after it several times per day. Perhaps they are trying to take advantage of people's general impatience to get them to spend a lot of money on the in app purchases to speed things up.
This game would be far better if it were speeded up by at least 100%, if not 200% to 400%.

The good of a game

This game is very fun you choose to be the creative one you put decorations,homes designs know you don't have to agree with me this is my opinion at first it was fun but a couple days later it got boring because I would have the house ready for them to go but they didn't so I deleted the game but the second time that I purchased I started to play again it was fun because I wad lots of designs It showed me creativity because I am not good at art so since that day I loved the game of the croods I am on the level 18
I wish there was more levels
