I downloaded this for an offer in another app. I had seen advertisements before on social media, but didn’t seem like anything I’d get into. I expected to only get through the few chapters I had to, in order to receive my gems in the initial game. But after those fewchapters, I ended up reading more and more, finding myself constantly checking for passes. Sometimes, it can get frustrating to not have passes when you’re reallyinto reading the story, but you can watch ads to reduce time, or you can get so many after reading a certain amount. They also give so many passes after a couple of hours. I normally rate an app, based on how much they keep my interest, as well as their support/customer service. It’s definitely kept my interest, as I’m constantly coming back to the app each time I get the baby settled or he’s distracted. I’ve only dealt with customer service twice with once hoping for something I’d googled about subscriptions to passes (which are no longer available/offered), and the other with an issue with one of the ads. Both times were responded to within 24 hours (very good timing, as most take days, or never respond), and the issue I had with an ad freezing, they were aware of and looking for a fix, but compensated me with the loss of my items (very quickly). I definitely have to rate the app a 5, and the customer service. They’re great!
This is a pretty cool app, I love the story’s and the design but there are really on two problems I have. Number one is the diamonds, it isn’t really fair for the people who can’t buy them to have to wait to get them. We have to choose options that effect our story but because we don’t have the amount we need we get stuck with the bad ones that almost ruin the entire story for us! The fact that there is only two ways of getting them and one of them is just playing is annoying. We either have to push through not having them and choose bad options or we have to waste tickets on a story just so we can get diamonds! Please fix this. My other problem is the story’s we can make ourselves. It’s a great idea and I absolutely love it, especially sense you can’t have diamond options but the design of the characters are different and it’s to hard to make. The episode story’s have an amazing design and I really applaud the people who make them but why don’t the users get the same design? It’s unfair and really a waste. I’m sure a lot more people would use episode if they had the same chances for characters. My other problem with the story’s is it’s way to hard to make. I’ve tried several times to make it and I’ve failed every time because of the difficulty. You should make more animations, backgrounds and clothes. Also give a better tutorial so we understand how to do it more. Other than that this app is perfect, change those things and it can be five stars.
I love the interactive stories this has to offer and their plots are intriguing as well. However it not only takes forever to get passes but the timer on it is glitchy. For example, just now I went back to the app around 6 o’clock 6:30pm and it is currently 9pm. I used the rest of my four passes before 7 and it showed 3 and a half hours left but when I just checked it was telling me I still had to wait for 2 and a half hours instead of one and a half. That’s an hours extra wait time. Players shouldn’t have to use all four passes in order to reset the timer to earn more. It should be an hour or even half an hour for each pass with the option to watch ads (limited number per day) in order to earn more. Additionally players should be able to watch ads and earn gems, even if it’s just two or three at a time because we want to be able to play the game fully. Also for whatever reason I feel super guilty when I don’t do the premium option but that could just be my anxiety and lack of friends in the real world. Anyways the timer can be super glitchy and needs to be fixed as well as the opportunity to earn passes or just have a shorter waiting period. The pass timer being glitchy and awful has happened to me before on multiple occasions and I would like that to be fixed. The lack of ways to obtain extra passes and the unearned wait time really sets what otherwise is a really fun break, back two stars.
Don’t get me wrong, great game! The stories are all nicely hard worked on, and detailed. But then it comes to hatred! Seriously, I know this isn’t real life but...would you have to pay diamonds to wear something nice that you already have in your closet! No! At least have a source of some sort to earn them, instead of waiting a day to only earn like 1. I understand you want to make money off of your game, but this is to much! Those people who are insanely rich probably don’t have a problem, but I’m sure those people who don’t have iTunes money and stuff are sick of having to wait a whole day for diamonds and 3-4 hours for only 3-4 tickets! Really, in all honesty I would actually watch like 17 ads to get a few diamonds and tickets rather than waiting a day, and 3-4 hours. It’s true. I just want to watch my story without waiting a whole 3-4 hours. Also the diamonds is just outrageous. How would you feel, in real life, there’s a nice dress/suit in your closet. Would you straight out pay 20 diamonds when it’s already in your closet. Or would you just stick to a old, ugly outfit? I’m so tired of this, it honestly wants to make me delete the game from stress of diamonds! Who knew a diamond could make you stressed? Yes! I am STRESSED! So please fix this or this game goes in the trash for me! Not trying to be rude but it seems it’s the only way I can make my point! So for random review readers..if your about to download the app just know what’s coming your way!
I understand that you developers want to make some money from the app but can you not give 2 measly passes for a 3-4 hour or wait. As a solution however, could you consider adding a feature that allows players to watch ads in order to earn passes. Honestly I would rather watch five ads to get one pass than wait 3 hours for 2. Plus ads would be a source of income for y’all. Literally everyone who has played your game, unless they have plenty money to waste, is super frustrated about the passes/ gems situation. It’s been this way for years and it feels like the developers just don’t give a crap about the game’s users because they haven’t made any helpful attempts to fix this problem. Now, we can earn gems ONE at a time, but the features that gems are used to pay for are now requiring more gems. So we are back to square one..... And you can’t just say “ well if you don’t like it then don’t download the game ” because there are so many people that don’t like these issues and if we all just stopped downloading the app, then you could only boast of having TEN downloads. There is a day coming when someone else, someone a lot nicer, is going to create an app as good as Episode but better because they at least give you a CHANCE to earn some flipping passes. So please just give into our wishes and give us more passes. The only reason we care about passes is because we actually like the game, so pleaseeeee help us out.
