Various Bug Fixes
Ratings and Reviews
I’m totally captivated by this game. It is easy but tough if you want to get 3 stars in each level... there is also rewards which keeps you going. Only problem I ve found is number 17 in the jade garden has a problem in that even if you have 3 stars the gate won’t open.
Quick to Learn
Some games are too complicated, but I was able do this one straight away. Cute graphics, and very reminiscent of the first video games I ever played. Enjoyed it immensely!
Weekly events, my foot!
So I downloaded this app a year ago because I loved playing this game 30 years ago. In the past year, there has been only one event and no updates. The new worlds are insanely difficult - I've only been able to get through the first one in each category after trying for weeks and weeks. And there is no help anywhere to be found. Consider Boulder dropped.
