Can’t give the 5th star - relays on you buying too much

I really like the game, but it is not worth buying energy, buying crytals, buying this and that to get to another step because as soon as you do there are more items you can’t find without buying them. I don’t mind spending a few bucks - $20 maybe $25, but lets face it, it’s a game and my money is hard earned. The random stuff you find program needs to be tweaked, there is no reason I still can’t find stuff listed when I was level 2 and now I’m level 17. in 15 levels you would think that I could find the items by now. very frustrating. It is programed well, looks good, decent music in the background so it’s relaxing. eventually though I see me moving on to something else because the randomizer isn't forking over what I need in a decent time and I’m bored with playing the same puzzles over and over for something I never use.

I like the game a lot!

I just wish there was a way to purchase energy with all the gold and resources you earn. Maybe they are needed at different levels, but so far the only benefit I see for having so much gold is an aware you get for reaching 100,000. The game only last about 40 minutes of play then you have to wait to gain more energy over time. This is very mean for a game that is so addictive. I’ve bought some energy, but I could spend alot of money playing as much as I wanted to play.

With that said, one of the best games I have found in the app store - definitely get and spend some money on it!!
