A few issues

Alright. I won’t lie. This game is pretty fun! High recommend to a book reader, who wants to be more active in a certain book’s fandom! This is a great concept, and I love it. But, the game does have some down sides along with this. Such as the menu, the menu feels a little out of place. It’s in the very bottom corner of your screen, and makes it a bit difficult to type, along with playing the game. Along with that, are the controls. Personally, I don’t like them. They make the game harder to play, like when ever you’re in front of a tree, it blocks out your view. Or if you’re at the corner of the island, you can’t really see. Making a camera view would be great. Easy to control, too. But, I’m enjoying seeing the develop of this game further.

What is it with this game and lags????

Shout out to Icerocker 15, I am right there with you. This game looks AMAZING. It looks like a totally fun, awesome game, with good security levels and lots of entertainment. And it could be even more fun then I think because I CANT EVEN GET PAST THE ‘PICK YOUR AVATAR’ THING! Sometimes I press the play button and it just spits me out on my home screen. It seems like it’s working totally fine until BOOM, I am shot out of the game. I have probably tried fifty times and my results are all the same.

The reason I gave it two stars instead of ZERO (which I would very much like to do!!) is because I was reading the other reviews and apparently there is a NEWSFEED and you can make comic books and you can explore islands and stuff! Holding me back from this is going to be a real job, because I am a wings of fire nerd who loves comic books and I am at the point of just deleting the game and trying again.

But the most likely situation is that I’ll wait another two hours for it to load and then it’ll be the same GLITCH all over again!! I mean, please, can’t you just FIX THIS? Aaaa!

Hmmmmmm🤔🤔🤔 A few glitches🤷🏼‍♀️

It’s ok! Just a couple of glitches and suggestions. So I updated Home base and I really liked it. It’s just when I was going to go to my home island, it was gray on the travel button. I couldn’t go in!!! And also, it wouldn’t let me make a post or look at others post. And it wouldn’t let me friend anyone. I’m a big Whatever After fan but I wanted to read the new book Home base put out for display, but I couldn’t find it in the podium place thingy. And I would also like if when I’m listening to one of the books or reading one of the books, to maybe read the full book, not a little portion of chapter one. I would also like it if they maybe put more islands of books like maybe a island for Raina Telgemeier books. And maybe a diary of a wimpy kid island. But also, when I try to get in, it wouldn't let me. It would just kick me out of the game. But other than the glitches, it’s a good game😀 Oh and the game crashes almost every 5 seconds and lags a lot
