Customer Reviews

I don't really write reviews but...

Okay first, hands down, this is a great game. Very simple to understand and a well amount of thought put into it. If you're the type of person to like interactive games, this isn't what you're looking for. This game is more like, "I'm bored and want to put my brain to work". It involves staring at your phone for a couple minutes before you can move forward, but only when you get deeper in the game. For $2 I'm satisfied, but, it's more of a dollar game.. I'm not bummed though. Maybe if they added another possible mode (not involving clips.. maybe some color) and expand from there. This game truely sparked for me and I've had fun completing it.


People Frank gave you a game that will stand the test of time. Ten years of gaming under my belt should tell you all you need to know about the validity of my opinion. Growing up in the hood if something was good we would say, winner, winner chicken dinner. People trust me you have one h- LL of a tasty chicken dinner here. In all my years of gaming this is on of the best games I have played. In closing all I can say is Frank is one h- LL of a developer who deserves your support. He earned it with this game. Two bucks for this gem. Come on people your stealing from Frank and he's looking the other way so he can keep the price as low as possible.

Mostly boring

The game was ok the first two times around. The first time you learn how the game works since their are no instructions. The second time you can optimize your game play now that you know how to play. But after beating the game by harvesting all matter in the known universe in a few hours, there really is no more fun left. Even the alternate universe options available after winning do not really add to the fun. Most of you game play is spent waiting. Also, there should be a way to check the top times to certain milestones. If you are going to play a clicker paper clip game, this is the way to go since you pay everything up front.
