Started out good, but...

This is just like so many of G5’s games. Survivors the Quest was the only exception and they seem to have stopped providing updates for that one, as well as several others. In Jewels of Rome once you progress to level 3 in a location it starts getting stupid hard and after that forget about it if you don’t want to spend big bucks for tools or waste your energy allotment and time trying to complete a quest. Plus many of the collections require so many combiners (up to 90+ for non-event collections and 113 for an event collection; those combiners are not giftable). You need a ton of friends who gift daily because it’s impossible to complete tasks in the locations that award the combiners. The graphics earned the 2 stars, which are generally great in G5 games but that is all the praise I can offer. The support staff are put in a truly terrible position because they really can’t do much, but it’s not their fault. They seem to be great people who work for a company that genuinely does not care about anything but money. I get it; it’s a business. I actually don’t mind spending for games I enjoy, but it should be reasonable...and enjoyable. It’s not. Peace out G5.

How disappointing!

I started playing this game and was finally enjoying a match game. It asked me to review it quickly but I waited because other games would do the same and then get impossible hard. I had hoped that this game wouldn’t, but I was wrong. Now the game makes it almost impossible to win..constantly “hinting “ that I need to use the special helpers..that cost $$. I understand that but some people can’t afford to buy their way through games. Also, (and THIS is what’s really troublesome) if “I” can see when a game is (do I say RIGGED?) set up to keep you from winning then you’ve ruined what could have been fantastic! I was ready to give this game 5 stars because I was loving it. I don’t want to play anymore. I would have thought that the game makers would have wanted glowing reviews..guess not.

Game is going down hill fast (edit 1/28)

I agree with other reviewers. I’m only on level 3-5 and it takes forever to win if you don’t have the tools. Needing 210 assemblers per collection but only being able to win 6ish assemblers per location is lousy. I’m also experiencing constant glitches when I try to use the friends button.

Need to include counts for energy restoration (217 current energy/ 250 max energy) and counts for 100% experience (64% but how many experience points do I need to level up)

Update 11/26...many gifts are not credited to inventory. Again, you need so many assemblers and this further frustrates my enjoyment of game. I estimate I only get credited with 1/3 of the gifts. Many glitches in game that don’t seem to get fixed.

Every time I need to add to this review the rating drops a star. I started with a 5 star review in October and now I’m down to a 2 star rating.

Update 1/28....I completed all the available quests over two weeks ago and no new quests have appeared since. Game is meaningless without quests to purse! I agree with other reviewers who talk about the game being heavily manipulated (I refer to them as f-you levels). Customer service is a waste of time, all they do is ask for more info and never fixed a single issue. I’ve gone from this being my fave game to wondering why bother.
