Would be 5 stars but they do not support game anymore


Addictive and fun. But they haven’t supported the game as far as I can tell since March 2017. It’s a shame, too.

Avoid paying any money in this free to play game. If they begin updating and supporting the game again, I’ll revise my rating.

(They have not run any special events in a year, so newer feel like they are missing out on something they see in the game but cannot have because it requires admins to run. They only make sure the servers are rebooted when they crash.)

A big problem with everything


When are you going to support the game?!? It’s very annoying that this game is abandoned and Intenium doesn’t care !
The seller should be ashamed!

This game is very addicting and I like the game a lot. But we've got a problem. The game doesn't load. It says it's not able to connect with the server. My internet connection works great with everything except the 🐀 🐀🐀🐀🐀 it might be time for updates? If not then Please fix it. Thanks

Easter eggs !?


Just wondering if there is a update or u don’t update often? I feel it’s still stuck on Easter? Or it’s just what we collect is eggs? Anyways thought it would change with the seasons or holidays coming up?

But the game is fun

I just think putting little fun things to work toward would be fun I know there is that cup after 2 days but I feel it’s stuck on the same thing over and over
