Good but annoying

It's a really addictive game, if you don't have a lot of spare time then just don't bother. However if your like me and are trying to avoid all the important stuff you should be doing then go for it. There is a lot to do, maybe to much. There are like 50 quests open at one time once you've been playing for a few hours, and nowhere near enough energy to get them done. You don't win enough energy when you complete a part of the game so you end up using gems to get more energy, gems run out fast so then of course you have to either stop playing or buy more gems. This feature could get very expensive because the game is so addictive. All the mini games start off very easy and after a while get super hard, to the point I just can't win, so end up using energy without getting any back.
This game is deffo made well for the game developers, I'm sure they will make a lot of money 😂

Great game

I’ve been playing for just over a year now and at first I didn’t know all the rules and options there are no instructions, but with a bit of perseverance and just plain luck I am now getting on quite well, once I realised that friends could help I have come on in leaps and bounds. I still struggle with energy shortages but you have to put up with it. Also any problem you have can sometimes be solved by customer service at g5 they are always helpful, you have to resist the urge to buy gems too often , I agree it can get expensive so the answer is ( don’t do it) anyway it’s a really good game and if you play sensibly you will really enjoy it, yes the tasks get harder but the best thing to do is save tools that will help and don’t cost anything , I’m waiting now for the new Christmas quest to start really looking forward to it , my advice is keep going it is addictive but enjoyable but also rewarding because you can also get to know some really nice people from all over the world , stick at it .🤗👍

Constant Pressure To Puchase Is Offputting....

I have been playing for a year now and it's the onpy game I play on a daily basis. The graphics for the last Halloween event were really hard to see and the crystal thing is an utter joke. You get one each time you level up yet if you want to open a location early it can cost from 250 crystals or more. A blatant rip off. I only ever purchase the £1.99 crystal set and that is only when I find the highway robber crystal that doubles your purchases. They have some bundles of crystals for £100! For a mobile phone game. Outrageous. I really hope they go bankrupt for being so egregiously greedy. Why not offer a free and a paid for version that requires no rip off in game purchases. I hope everyone boycots purchases bigger than £2 and boycotts the game if this continues. Some people have no morals at all.
