I love the game
I’ve read quit a lot of reviews and here’s what I have. First of all- I don’t try to earn gold by doing anything that takes me out of the app. I only watch the commercials. Secondly, I used to see that even after watching the commercials I wouldn’t get my gold. Here’s the thing- I’ve realized that after the commercial is over, you have to wait a second till the pop up says you’ve earned your gold.
I’m pretty far along in the game- I’m up to level 93. I really enjoy it. Yes, the price of upgrades has gone up but you also have the chance of earning 3 gold bars a day. That helps. I’ve also learned to use my upgrades wisely and not just spend so I can get to the next level. I have never spent a single dollar on this game. Ever. And I never will.
I have not downloaded the newest upgrade because last time this kind of thing came up it looked WILDLY complicated. The spinning, the dressing, who cares?? I just wanna run restaurants. I was so glad to see it go away last time.
I have almost 2 million coins. I want the offers to but surprise gifts with coins!!
I love this game. The game play is so fun, the characters are entertaining, there's A LOT you can unlock and do, it's mostly an awesome game!
However, it really is very difficult to get anywhere without spending real world money. At first, it seems easy to gain gold bars, complete levels, unlock necessary and helpful upgrades, etc. But the more you play, the less you see. For instance, I completed the first restaurant (Table Steaks - all three seasons) with ease and managed to get 5 stars on every level with little help. I have since purchased Taco Train and find it impossible to get 5 stars on the majority of levels without VIPs, which cost gold as do upgrades to the restaurant, plus coins and only gaining a couple stars per level, I'm not getting many coins either. So no matter what I do, even using gold to buy things to help, I'm getting nowhere. I purchased the vegan restaurant next, even WITH upgrade, VIPs, serving all customers quick and efficiently I'm only able to get 2-3 stars per episode. Why is that? I feel like the work I'm putting into each level is monumental compared to the rewards. I'd spend real money on this game if I felt like it would actually help but to be honest, I don't think it will.
And lastly, I've only been playing this game for about a week, maybe not even that long, at first I didn't notice many ads. Now all of a sudden there are video ads that pop up frequently and oftentimes crash the game.
Expensive and time consuming
This game is fun to play but they've designed it to make it VERY difficult to earn gold...... which you have to have to buy upgrades to win the levels. The upgrades are super expensive compared to the gold you can earn without using your real, hard earned money to buy more. The prep kitchen recipes you need to really win levels take hours and days to prep (no joke people.... 20 hours, 14 hours, 2 days, etc.). You can earn “free gold” by watching 30 second videos or completing other tasks tasks. BE WARNED....... this process can be glitchy and even though you did your part, you won’t get your gold. Don’t bother contacting customer service, “It’s beyond their control”. Free gold is handled by a third party and they “have no control over it”. They are super great about telling you how it’s all your fault though ( your device doesn’t have enough memory, your bandwidth isn’t good enough, etc), AND, they will NEVER offer to give you anything free in return for all your trouble. They are even good enough to tell you that you can uninstall your game and reinstall it to solve any glitching and everything will be great b/c they have a backup of your game saved..... BE WARNED!!!!! THEY DON’T!!!! Customer care is a joke!!! My 4 year old is more helpful. You will lose everything for good. Very hard lesson learned here. A LOT of time and energy wasted.
DON't WASTE YOUR TIME PEOPLE! I will be deleting this game as soon as I hit send!
