Customer Reviews

Only Writing This Review to Remove a Mission

Which is also why I'm only giving it 3 stars. I don't like being required to connect to Facebook or writing reviews or following companies on Twitter. If we could delete those missions, I would add another star. I am not a fan of connecting my games to my social media, because I don't need my whole family seeing the games I like to play. And I will never follow a company on Twitter because I don't use it! Oh and it's really annoying that the game doesn't even recognize that I have already "liked" G5 on Facebook! 😠

Great and fast rate of play

This game is much better than other games like because of the much faster rate of play. Instead of waiting 3 or 4 days to upgrade a building you can do it in a few taps. Also the currency is continuously building allowing you to gather money much faster than any other game I have played. My only complaint is that to clear a region you need diamonds which take awhile to build up.


This is an addicting game! It allows you do be creative and build a city the way you want to. The special buildings you can build are really fun! Also the goals they have for you aren't unreasonable to complete and are rewarding.
