Enjoying Myself So Far

This is the 1st game that I’ve played that’s only about gem matching. I admit it’s tough at times but I’m enjoying the challenge, with the options of having a variety of tools to help when I just feel stuck and don’t want to keep trying.

My biggest complaint is having the experience progress bar portray my status as a percentage. I’ve wasted several high-value energy items because I couldn’t tell how close I was to reaching the next level, where my energy would fully recharge. Some players may be fine with a percentage but I want at least the option of seeing the progress as a point value, like other G5 games.

My second biggest complaint is not being able to see what my max level value is. The only way I know is when I do a full recharge.

And I can’t figure out when the Barrel tool would be used. A tutorial or FAQ on a website or social media would be nice.

Love far

They ask for reviews too quickly! So far it’s great fun and glitch free! If you like Cradles of Rome, you’ll like this one! Colorful and easy to understand the point of the game. The only suggestion I have so far is to add the percentage needed to level up in a site. If you get a quest/task to increase your rank in a specific site, it would help to know how close you are. Otherwise don’t change anything!! Another great G5 game!
Update on this is review is the game get VERY hard very quick. Great game but not for those unwilling to pay real cash to move forward.

Energy doesn’t renew

This update doesn’t fix energy renewal problem. Basically, I can hardly ever play since my energy levels don’t renew. After waking up, I had 9 energy! Not enough to play anything. And now after being up for two hours, it’s at 11! Please fix or I will dump this game.

June 21 addendum to my review
I reset my iPad and that seemed to fix my game so that it started working as before. Lesson learned. Now I’m back to enjoying the game.
