Definitely 5 Stars

This game is a blast a a great game to play in your past time. I’ve always loved building and architecture games so much and this games definitely satisfies me. They give you some pretty simple buildings and some that are just random. What’s also nice is that if you’re stuck it don’t know what to do you have a guide to help you along the way! The only thing that is bad about this game is that some of the buildings, islands, and land are just way to expensive. But other than that it’s good. There is so many more great stuff about this game so go check it out. If you do, YOU WON’T REGRET IT!

Hate new icons!!!

Until yesterday, I would have rated this game 5 stars, but you went & ruined it with the last update. The reason why I like playing City Island 3, was because the art was realistic. The last update made the icons cartoon-ish. If I liked the cartoon look, then I would play City Island 5! Not to mention that when you click on collecting cash, it shows cash raining down, which slows me down, especially in places that are packed close together, because I miss clicking on the other cash icons. Seriously irritating, and makes me feel dizzy. I really thought I would play this game to the end, but I don’t know if I can stand it now. Please, please change the icons back to how they were. I downloaded other newer games of your’s, but deleted them within 24 hours, because of how much I hated the icons and cartoon look of the buildings, etc.
If you ruin City Island 3 by making it look so childish, I will never download or even bother looking at another Sparkling Society game ever again! Then again maybe it would be worth it just to leave bad reviews for them too.

Fun To Pass Time

I had this game on my tablet a few years ago and really enjoyed it while my mother was in the hospital. So when I got a new phone I downloaded the IOS version and still enjoy playing from time to time. The music for each island is unique and enjoyable to listen to. The only complaint I have, and why I’m giving it a 4 Star, is because the Freaky Floors island is always asking me to “download the HD music”, or whatever it is, for it. I have and apparently it either isn’t working or it’s bugged. I had the same problem on my tablet so I just tell it to not ask me for 3 days. If that could be fixed I would most certainly appreciate it. It’s not too bothersome but then I don’t get to hear that islands unique music. :(
