Whale Trail (aka best game ever)

To start off this WONDERFUL review, first I'd like to say, I once had this game before, and it was my absolute FAVORITE! Sadly, my iPod dropped and cracked and I didn't back it up. That was about 5 years ago. Now I am 10, and my cousin just told me about this game. We were downloaded all the old games we used to have. For example, shark world, color switch, mmmm fingers, and SO MUCH more. But, none of those games were as good as this one, for these reason.
One reason I think Whale Trail is the best game ever, is because you can unlock new sharks. I'm saving up all my money to buy a new shark. I'm planning on getting the yeti which I believe is 2,000. YOU can also get instant frenzys, more tokens, and fuel. I think there's more, but I forgot.
Another reason why this game is so awesome, is because the actual game itself is fun! It's very simple and easy. You are a shark who collects fuel, and you have to dodge the other clouds. While you play, you collect these rainbow stars, which lead you into getting a frenzy. You have to get the red star, orange star, yellow star, green star, blue star, purple star, and then frenzy- Frenzys blow up the clouds and gives you more fuel. You can also get bubbles which gives you more fuel, and then you can collect something special. Like frenzys, fuel, and you come back to life for further in the game.
I think you should get this game for all these reasons and I'd think you'd love it! PEACE

Absolute unit of a game

First I’d like to say this game has aged very well. I remember getting this game when I was younger and returning to it on yo multiple occasions over the span of about 5 years or so. The gameplay is simple and the idea is fun and original. In fact, the game’s charm is really what earns the 5 stars for me. Not to mention the soundtrack is pretty awesome. Adds also aren’t a problem which is a HUGE plus considering current iOS games.
Although it has aged well it’s age also shows, as there haven’t been an update in a very long time. Not that it needs one but, it only two game modes which gets repetitive at times. Also, the content available to buy with krill is pretty obtainable (and limited). With a little grind work you will unlock everything in the game.
Overall a solid game though.

I think 💭 whale trail is a cute game for kids and even adults I mean I'm age 12 getting close 13 and try to stay away from anything that childish!

But I mean the creators of the app made the picture on the front look so full of excitement and I just had to try it out ! So I started and I loved it so much I had to show it to my four brothers that extremely wild 😜! But I mean come on their brothers ! So anytime we play whale trail they all sing 🎶 the song with it and all of sudden Bam 💥 their calm 🙌🏽 and I was like okay this game is magical I mean it calms down crazy kids like them sooo....

Also everyone in the family likes the concept of it and it just kinda became a family thing so we all play that together and whale 🐳 trail 🌈 brought me and my family one step closer !
