Love/hate relationship

Loving the gameplay. Hating the overheating of my iPad and iPhone, and how quickly this game drains my battery. The latest update doesn’t solve these two problems.

Developer Response ,

We're constantly working on improving battery life. Some factors or in our control and others are due to the engine we're using. Progress is being made slowly on both fronts. Hang in there!

Battery destroying phone melting mess . . .

Earlier today, after downloading it and playing while still plugged in, I was about to give this game a 5 star rating, as I was really enjoying the vibe of the hive and the relaxed-yet-challenging gameplay. I read the reviews before shucking out my 5 dollars, and quickly — stupidly — wrote off the negative ones as being typical haters and drama queens.

I played this for about 15 minutes tonight unplugged, and was staggered to see my battery drop from 80% to 20% in 15 minutes flat, with my 6s Plus heating up to the point where it felt like I was holding a hot cup of coffee.

This is RIDICULOUS. Users have been complaining about this issue forever, but apparently the developers don’t care enough to release an update for a fix, while having the audacity to charge 5 bucks for this battery buster of an app.
Yet I can still play a graphics-n-sound blasting games like Asphalt 9 with almost no hit to my battery? Doesn’t make sense. I am absolutely perplexed as to how this game is rated as high as it is. Refunds should be given to all users.

Really like this!

Great design and graphics like an active bee hive with the waggle effect. The ability to move backwards and forwards 2 turns, change and move letters to empty spaces is good especially late in the game. But you have to choose the opportunities wisely, well done!
