Choices has, by far, the best story telling and art for a Visual novel app out there, but it’s suffering severely in the lack of diamond earning. I put it down for months out of frustration for how much it cost to get through a single chapter. You have to spend weeks of time playing unrelated stories, that you also can’t really enjoy or don’t have interest in, just to earn enough diamonds mid chapter of your favorite story. You can’t even replay old stories to earn diamonds? So even if you blitz through a book to earn diamonds so you can go back and experience the diamond choices, you waste a ton of time and keys because you can’t earn diamonds replaying the book. An entire book doesn’t even cover the cost of the majority of a SINGLE diamond choice! At this rate, we will have to go through EVERY story released, using no diamonds, just to finish a favorite book and get the various scenes. I’d suggest holiday diamond earning bonuses or sales. I’ve seen a daily “wheel spin” or “loot box” suggestion that could be great too. Something to incentivize coming back to the app every day, or splurging on a sale, and not just to scroll carelessly through a story that doesn’t interest you just to collect a couple diamonds per day. I love the stories, I just hate how incredibly pricy and irregular the diamond costs are. 30 diamonds for an early hangout scene (Dean in RoE) but 17 or so for an actual romance scene? I don’t want to talk about the cockroach situation.
I’m borderline obsessed with these books. I’ve played them all! Every story is different from the next and, being a writer myself, I really appreciate all of the character development. There’s no question that a lot of thought goes into the customizing, the art, the music, and the dialogues. My favorites include The Freshman (makes me feel young again LOL), Royal Romance, and the newer books like Desire & Decorum, as well as Perfect Match. Once you get into it, the characters really come alive and It’s hard to stop playing! I discovered Choices about a year ago, and very quickly went through all the stories. I gave them 5 stars because they’ve truly mastered the art of virtual reality and I would absolutely die to work for Pixelberry someday! My only complaints are that I’ve paid more than I can really afford on diamonds, and you have to wait anxiously for new chapters and books. Like someone mentioned in another review, I would much rather spend $10-$20 on the app at initial download, rather than pay as I go. Or even offering 2-5 diamonds after watching an ad instead of just 1. Heck, I’d even watch more ads if it meant earning more diamonds! Otherwise, Choices is brilliant and beautifully done. I’ve laughed, I’ve cried, and I’ve learned a lot about myself through these characters- as cheesy as that sounds. These stories are never dull, and contain a lot of twists and turns. I highly recommend Choices over any other competitor apps! Loveee!
Choices, without a doubt, is the best game I have ever played. I have had it for almost a year and still look forward to new chapter being released, and reread my favorite stories. Choices’s books have taught me so much about family, relationships, love, and the importance of making a choice. Our choices truly do define us, which I think is the whole message of the game if you could boil it down. Have you ever wanted to attend a school of magic? Find love in Jane Austen’s England? Captain a star ship? Seek vengeance in Ancient Rome? Become a superhero? Marry a king? Fight for your crown? Or just try to survive high school? There is a book out there for everyone, I promise. However, If you only play one book series, please play Endless Summer. Inspired by the tv show Lost, this book is a tear jerking, heart string pulling, hair raising, mind bending beautiful adventure that I cherished every minute of and cannot wait to re read. Anyway, do yourself a favor and get this game. It sure changed my life. Thank you Pixelberry. p.s. Many people complain about the diamonds and yeah, I sometimes wish there were less choices that require diamonds each chapter (Across the Void is notoriously bad at this) but there are plenty of games that only have one or two diamond choices per chapter, and you certainly don’t have to spend any diamonds to enjoy each book. I have never spent any real money on this game which has not hindered or lessened my game experience in any way.
Hey guys! I love this game SO MUCH! Like, these are the things that make me throw my phone when I get a cliffhanger... ANYWAY! So, I keep playing (loving Hero, by the way) and I realize: if you want to really experience half the stuff, you have to pay diamonds. Now, premium currency is something I've always loved. It helps give the creators money. But the diamond system in this game... it just doesn't make sense. Like, I'm playing Hero ~(SPOILER ALERT)~ and I'm at the point where you can customize the clock tower base, and it costs 30 diamonds to make it awesome. Now, I wouldn't mind if the system was that you can get a max of like 15 diamonds a day. And that's IF you play a new story every time, and you play 24 hours straight. So, since I don't have that kind of time, I have to pause my adventures for a few weeks until I can make enough to buy it. Same happened with Endless Summer ~(ALSO SPOILER ALERT)~ where at the end you get the files to hack the password. So I had to play the first two books of The Freshman, which took me a month, and then, not ten minutes later, in Crown and Flame ~(YOU KNOW THE DRILL)~ "Spend 12 diamonds to save the Prince." So, either make diamonds easier to get (my idea is a HUGE diamond bonus at the end of a book, like ten diamonds or so) or make the premium choices cheaper. I'll fix my rating afterwards. NOW, ONTO THE GOOD STUFF YOU'VE BEEN DOING~ Guys, keep up the good work! And please hurry up with Most Wanted 2! Love that one!
Choices It’s a wonderful addition to the older app episodes. I think that so far the riders for this app are extremely talented and it will go really far. One thing that I think that Choices can work on is making the choices that require gems more realistic. There are certain things that we shouldn’t have to pay for and I understand that you have to make a profit, but the people that use this app also have to pay bills. This app is extremely amazing and I absolutely love it.?There are so many things for so many people, and there’s always something that you can do. If you like to scream your head off there are stories for that. If you like to laugh there are stories for that. If you want to fall in love with the characters there are stories for that. If you want to go on an adventure there are stories for that. So again there’s something for everyone. One thing that I want to talk about is the story Blood Bound. Choices writers NEED to have a part two because that is my favorite one and there is yet to be an update while there are new stories being written and other stories getting updated I think that Blood Bound should get updated as well. Choices will have you hooked until the end. The stories are amazing, the characters are amazing and have very diverse personalities. I personally think that anyone who tries this app will fall in love immediately.
