Ratings and Reviews
I loved the computer game from the 90s so I thought I'd see if there was an app. Unfortunately it falls short in a couple of ways. It won't save my progress no matter what I do so if the app closes you have to start all over. Additionally the touch sensitivity seems off. I have no other problems in any of my other apps but this one constantly puts pipes near where I click, sometimes really messing up what I had planned. They did add some cool other modes but you have to unlock them meaning that you have to work up to that point to play them since it won't save. It shows promise but unless they fix the save issue the game is basically useless.
Doesn't save at all. Bad gimmicks and story compared to someone that just wants to play the original. Classic mode needs to be unlocked, which defeats the purpose with no saves.
Good but there's a couple issues
The game was one of my favorites on Nintendo DS when I was younger so I downloaded it, it hasn't crashed but it isn't centered to my iPhone 6 screen when I open the app. It also doesn't save any of my history so that's pretty frustrating.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
