Good game

So far I'm enjoying this game. Just wish there was a way to earn stars without paying for them.

So far so good

Update: Better. I'm learning. Still would like for scenes to not cost so much.

Earlier review: I'm stuck on memory 3. Certainly not the games fault, but I wish there were ways to earn more hints (or if there are, I'd like to be able to figure that out 😊).

I like it so far, we shall see. Will update review.

Items take multiple taps to register, high scores aren't recorded, and special scenes don't work like they should so that your only option to get past them is to buy and use diamonds. It's too bad, because I like the concept, but the frustration factor over rules....
