Hi! I’m a 👧who loves this game and I play it all the time! It’s so fun and I love sharing my projects ( and P. S. I wrote a review before! Anyways, I love this game and this is really great because it’s so fun and great at learning with coding. My parents say it’s not REAL coding, but I disagree and I love this game and I play it almost everyday so yeah. Anyways, let’s see about the complaints, well theirs a bug in splash clash and when I am playing in splash clash and finding someone to play with it says description of the message so I get confused 😐. But once something worse happened in it! I was about to play with the person online but instead something worse . So I was about to play with the person online and it made the AI play instead of the person online and I had to go back so I was really mad 😡 that that happened because no one showed up. But that only happened once. But the rest is great. 😊 Anyways I just posted the Transform the Floor contest. Tell Fooville Legends I said hi. So bye now! Have a nice day and don’t give up on this game because I LOVE it! So byyyye now! - Ella Ghost Glitch kid coder.

I like it but I think I need some updates

Hi I really like this game but one problem is that I think I need some few update for example, like what if you can comment on adventure, stories, and games and what if you can add like a back section in created a foo oh, so what if we have a random which means that they can get so many ideas and what if you can add some new pets foos or other stuff or maybe you can add a customize foos and pet section. That would be so much fun. I remember this. Third grade. Plus, I think we need some ideas of adventures stories and games one more thing I think we need some other puzzles of like what is that megahertz has a problem finding the bad guy and other stuff one last thing, what if you can add some more to the other stories, and the very last thing what if you can add like even more pets, and and so many other things in the other sections and maybe you can add like a lot of more badges and maybe you can add a splash crash badge it may be at the things in a crate a foo plus you maybe you can get some more profile and that’s a all have to say so goodbye, and I cannot wait

Wonderful App with Top Notch Customer Service

I cannot say enough great things about this app and company! My kids LOVE it so much! They play alone or together, sometimes on a video call with friends so they can share screens and work on designing levels together; which has been a great way to stay connected while physical distancing. I contacted customer service with a log in issue and it was quickly resolved. But then once logged back in, my kids’ profiles were gone. Sandra went through 1,000s of emails and found that I had unknowingly created two accounts, one of which I entered my email wrong. She took so much time just to recover the lost profiles with all of my kids’ levels they had made. I cannot tell you how wonderful she was!!! She was beyond kind and patient with me while resolving the mistake I had made. My daughter screamed in excitement when her profile was found! I honestly cannot say enough wonderful things about this app and company!

Developer Response ,

Thank you so much for your kind review! Everyone here at Team codeSpark is very excited that your daughter has her much-loved profile back and we can't wait to see what she creates with her friends and siblings next!
