I can't comment on the forced ads because I had the foresight to play this game in airplane mode. But I can comment on the game itself. It's an ugly, bland, broken mess. The gameplay is slow and clunky, the character and objects frequently get stuck on one another (fortunately, the game is at least able to fix this), there are many levels that don't feel unique in the slightest, and even if you have airplane mode on the game tries to get you to watch optional ads every single level. No, that is not an exaggeration.
That said, it's the only game I've found thus far that actually matches the "pin pull" puzzle game format used in those scummy bait and switch advertisements you see everywhere online. But just because it is as advertised doesn't mean it's worth playing.
I would have given this 5 stars but, there are more commercials than game play. You play one level for 10 or so seconds, then you have a 30 second commercial. Some commercials are shorter, but they play after each short scene or puzzle. I saw the option for “no “ ads for $2.99 and thought, I’ll bite the bullet after hoping to find this type of game. I’m still getting the ads after every scene. I’m so very disappointed! If this isn’t rectified after a couple of days, I’m deleting this. Don’t waste you money buying this. If this gets changed to no ads for me, I’ll return to give it more stars.
The game is fun but the number of ads is horrifying. First you force us to watch an ad as a reward for finishing the level, every level, then you have to watch an ad to get 200 coins, every level. Finally every third level you have to watch an ad to claim the new skin. It’s simply too much. Seven ads for every three levels. Sorry to see this game go, but I refuse to spend more time watching ads than playing the game. 65 seconds of ads for 10 seconds of gameplay every level. Way too much.
It offers me new skins etc.. But when I tap to claim it tells me no ads are available. Then proceeds to say if I miss it, it may be gine forever. Like would that be considered cheating ? Regardless I don’t like being teased like that.. Love the game .. But you literally have to watch an ad for almost EVERYTHING you do.. I don’t mind an ad or 2 but that’s just entirely too much. Then you got the nerve to make it worse.. And tell me there’s no more available
I loved the promo for it and to enjoy the game but you have to sit through a 20-30second ad after each level. In other words you spend the majority of your time watching ads.. a shame really
Edit to add, you can’t get the skins because you have just watched an end of the level ad and it says indefinitely there isn’t an ad available to watch to get the skins.
This would be a fun game, except for the fact that you get an ad practically every time you make one play. And I don’t mean complete a level—I mean press one button. In most games you can play for five minutes before you have to watch an ad. In this game you have to watch five ads for every minute of play! The developers should be ashamed of themselves!
So most of these reviews are not helpful. Games have adds. Get over it. And if you click on the “watch add for bonus coins/skins” guess what? You’ll see more adds. As far as I can tell it doesn’t affect the game play at all if you ignore that option. It’s a fine game for what it is. Really weird story line.
I’ve played this game for a couple days but when I try to claim the new skins, I get a pop up saying the “ad is not ready try again in a few seconds”. Guess what I have been waiting and still unable to claim new skin....once this is fixed I may update my rating because it is a fun game
I’m not exaggerating when I say you spend more time on ads than you do playing the game. And when you do play all you do is pull a bar out of the way, treasure falls and then an add for two minutes. Another 5 seconds of pulling a stick then two minute ads again. Waste of time
DO NOT download this. Complete waste of time. Right from the get go you’re bombarded with 30 second ads so half the time you’re on this you’re waiting for an annoying repetitive ad to close. Levels are way too easy and no challenge what so ever.
