Good game, but false advertisement of levels
This is a very solid game. The levels are good and somewhat challenging. The mini games are fun and enjoyable. However there is one nagging issue. The app description says that there are 125 levels. There are 5 main worlds, each having 20 levels. That’s a given. That still leaves 25 levels. But okay, the Far East world has ten, which brings our total to 110 levels. That’s still not how many levels the app says it has in the description. Even if the Far East had 20 levels, there would still be 5 levels missing. Where are the remaining 15 levels? This game would be better if it had all the levels the description said it did, but it’s still pretty good.
I bought this game for both my iPad and iPhone when it was paid . I installed it on both devices and restored purchase . Then i had to do a fresh restore of my iPhone because i was testing iOS betas and wanted to go back to a released iOS version . I installed all my apps from the Apps store including Monkey Ball. I did not restore from a Backup .
I then open Monkey ball and tried to restore purchase, i got the pop up to input my iTunes ID and password and just as i put them in i got a call which i answered . I then went back to Monkey Ball to to finish my restore purchase and it was back on the screen asking to : play for free or pay to get rid of Ads or restore. I tried to restore again but it won’t allow me to and when. I quit the game and tried again and still no go . I tried to play the game i get adds . I then click on pay to get rid of Ads just to see if it would then say that i’ve purchased already put it went ahead and charge me again.
I mean $1.99 is nothing but it’s very bad business practice to force someone to pay for something twice especially for a game i think i paid $10 buck for in the beginning, plus what i paid on my iPad .
First of all, I’m annoyed with the mechanics. I don’t like that I have to sit straight up and look down at my phone to play it, which is very uncomfortable. Tilt sensitivity needs to be adjustable in settings.
Most importantly, I wish there was an on screen analog option so I didn’t have to tilt my phone. I want to be able to play lying down which is impossible with the tilt mechanic.
Also, not sure if this is a bug or just an obstacle that wasn’t explained in the tutorial; sometimes I get turned around and can’t stop rolling in that direction. The ground seems like it’s level so I don’t understand why. I think every type of obstacle needs a short tutorial or else it’s just frustrating and confusing.
Crazy amount of ads. I understand that it’s so the game can be free, but goodness I can’t even pause and resume the game without 2-3 ads. Huge turnoff.
I just completed the first set of challenges and I’m stuck on the congratulations screen. Have to restart the app. Pretty early in the game to be experiencing a bug.
Tried to play the bowling mini game. The ball curves left every time no matter what. What the heck.
Overall, this game is disappointing in comparison to the real game I played as a kid. Lacks basic features that all mobile games of this type seem to have nowadays. Bugs within the first 10 minutes was what sealed the deal. Will be deleting unfortunately.
