Overall, this game is OK and I plan on keeping it. The only reason I gave “My Story” a three star was because of the situation with the gems. Unless you buy gems, or save up for A WHILE, you’re going to have a bit of a dull experience.
I get why the creators of this game made it so you have to pay (not in real money) for some of the better outfits, but WOAH. Two words. Rip. Off. Also, what’s with the “premium choices”?
The point of this game is to read an intriguing story, and to get the ending you want. Then you download the game and find that you have to spend at least 25 gems just to point you in the right direction!!! LOWER THE PRICE! Better yet, only drag in the premium choices every once and a while, so people who don’t want to spend there actual mula can save up a bit. Last thing that gets on my nerves is the “premium story”. 50 gems???
After spending all that you only get to read a story of about 3-5 chapters, no joke. There is the an option to watch a couple of ads every day for about five gems, but it’s still a bit ridiculous the prices of this game. In case you were wondering, besides this, ads pretty much don’t exist in “My Story”. Point is, My Story creators need to improve the prices on this game, wether we’re spending fake money or not.

As you can see, I added this part of my review a few months later. I was re-reading “Bad Judgement”, (Cool story! Definitely check it out!) and I wasn’t interested in the looks they offered me for my character. All that is displayed are different skin colors with different sets of makeup. Once you choose one of those, it’s on to the over-priced hairstyles and outfits. I know in my previous paragraph I said they should they should lower the prices on character customization, but really, I think it should be free! + more detailed.
It would be fun to have the ability to adjust things by a bar. Choose a free out fit and hairstyle, adjust your hair and skin color, and best of all make-up!- IF you wear any. And that brings me to my next idea... why can’t we choose the gender? I am a girl, but I’m arguing for the boys or men who like this game. In MOST stories you should be able to choose from male, or female. That’s really all I have to say.
Sorry this was, like, the longest review ever!
Why is majority of the characters white? You can’t choose if you want to be with a black man or women. I feel if you choose a black character then the family should atomically be black. It can’t be called choose your own path if I can’t choose what race I want to be with. It need more color and other ethnicity in this game. Also the diamond prices are to high for the clothing. I feel when you complete a story you should get at least 2 or 3 diamonds. Clothing shouldn’t be no more than 15 diamonds. Overall I really like this game just work on different ethnicities and the cost of clothing.
There are some great stories in the app but about half of them have remained unfinished. A few have been left this way for around 2 years. I’ll occasionally download to see if they’ve been finished but they never are.
I recommend the creators check out how other successful story telling apps work. Choices has a doable format. They schedule weekly updates for a set number of books and only one chapter at a time. Yes it’s nice to have bulk reading but I’d prefer a finished story.
The stories are great, but I think that it is horrible that tickets and gems cost money, and if you look at the shop they are even overpriced! I had to wait an hour to get one ticket, and I watched at least 7 ads to speed up the time, and nothing happened.I think that you would get more downloads if you took tickets and gems off of the game, and you would probably get better reviews, too.
I just downloaded this game and I can’t say anything bad just yet. I just started Love Mona and the audio surprised me! Also I love how you can choose from multiple skin tones I’m going to see how I like it as I continue to play more, and I will write another review. But so far I am enjoying this game. I do wish there were more upcoming stories!!❤️❤️❤️
Getting this game is a waste of time honestly. The stories are fun & whatever but you get more annoyed with having to keep spending diamonds on stupid things. It’s not like episode where things are reasonably priced. Like 5 diamonds for an outfit or a decision. they want MINIMUM 15 gems. MINIMUM. it’s trash.
save your energy & your peace.
You have to buy the best options with diamonds I hardly have any because I have to spend them on clothes and hair! Please change that then I will give you guys five stars ⭐️. I had to go to homecoming in a cropped sweatshirt and sweatpants because Mona didn’t have any diamonds and it wasn’t letting me get free ones either!! So annoying
I have stopped playing My Story for only 2 days and it says it has 220 notifications telling me to play! That’s too many notifications, and I am annoyed. Also, the diamond prices are too expensive! Either let us earn at least 3 diamonds for every chapter or lower prices to 5 and 10 diamonds, and 15 for the most.
The gems is very costly and why do you need tickets for chapters . Very interesting game but too costly. Everything about this games is too costly. Changes needed
The other issue is when choosing a nickname every name I used is taken and I can’t post my review. Smh need to fix ASAP
I honestly love this game but there should be a community mode where we can make our own story’s. There is barely and story options, and the choices are so expensive. It’s very rare you get more than 2 options. Please fix this app. That’s all I have to say! Bye!
