One of the best

So I preordered this game a while back and then I got it! It was a great story for what I have seen so far. I love that the Goldberg’s get there own game! Because in old episodes you Always had Adam make a game and I wish you made it to be real for we could have something cool to do when the Goldbergs were not on. There’s only one problem and it’s not big because I can see why you do it but I just thought that the cassettes would be less to upgrade you characters because it took me about a long time just to get them. But I did see what you did with the every five or something minute thing. Other than that one thing I really enjoyed the game and I hope you keep on updating the game and maybe If you don’t make a back to the 90’s game maybe you could put schooled characters in there as a side quest or like you get them after you complete the Goldberg quest and just keep updating new story’s for the Goldberg's and schooled. But I wish you a good day.

P.s. I have watched every Goldberg episode and schooled.

It’s still crashing on the loading screen

I pre ordered the game and didn’t realize it was out until the day after but every time it try and start it up it crashes every time on the load screen I’ve seen reviews were people had this problem but they still got it to start and play I uninstalled and then reinstalled it and it still doing the same thing on the loading screen I even got the most recent update when you guys said you fix the problem where people were getting stuck on the loading screen and it’s still crashing on the loading screen I have a iPhone 5s and it says it’s compatible with it and I have the most recent firmware update I really want to play this game it looks fun but I can’t play it

TONS of ads

I love the show so as soon as the game came out I downloaded and played it. It is fun and has fun storylines but is overrun with ads. Basically you have to either be comfortable paying a ton of money to succeed or be okay with the fact that you will need to spend about 5 minutes minimum watching ads each time you want to play. With the most recent update now on events to double production you have to watch twice as many ads as before. I wondered why there wasn’t an option to buy the game and opt out of ads but they are clearly sold out to the ads and probably making a killing. I have made it a personal point to never download or watch anything they advertise and honestly after this last update I am close to deleting it because it is so frustrating to have to watch so many ads just to try and get the rewards from events. The game is fun and addictive but I am pretty close to deleting the whole thing.
