I have had this app for a long time now, It’s a amazing fun app! Each story I have ever read on episode wasn’t a waste of time at all! All the stories were very detailed, also the storyline wants you to keep reading! The characters and quality is amazing, it brings life to the story! They feel like actual humans to me, how they move and what they wear, and their features. Though at first this game made me wait 3-4 hours for the tickets to refill which sucked! With this new update you can just watch ads to refill passes! So I don’t have to wait for passes anymore! The gems are a problem that isn’t really bad, but the gems is exaggerated amounts. First off in some stories you have to pay 20 gems for a outfit that won’t last long at all, second I see you have to pay with gems after the next and the next, left and right, so I started reading what the community writers had to show. I think their stories are AMAZING! STORYLINE IS LITERALLY THE BEST! And I don’t see me using my gems in sight, I haven’t used my gems once from reading the community writers stories. So if you are planning to get this app for the first time, I recommend you read some stories with gems in them, then move over to The COMMUNITY WRITERS stories! This way you get a taste of both! After that I suggest you stick with THE COMMUNITY WRITERS STORIES! They are the best! But if you decide the ones with gems in the stories that’s you, you do you!
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.
Episode is great, don’t get me wrong. I honestly love it so much and I play episode almost every day. But the passes and gem situation is very frustrating. You have so many downloads, and you guys probably want to keep it that way. So if I were you, I would try putting yourself in a different position and ask, “Would I be frustrated if I waited 4 hours to get 2 passes?” I definitely would be. 2 measly passes after waiting for 4 hours! That’s insane. Now I need to point out one thing though, they do give 4 passes every 4 hours of you continuously play episode. that seems a bit more reasonable. As I said I love episode, but maybe change it to 4 passes in 4 hours all the time, not just if u play episode a lot. Some people can be very inpatient and might just delete the app as soon as they see how long you need to wait. Also, maybe consider a thing where you can watch ads in order to get a pass?! please consider. One last thing. Some stories actually have tons of choices to choose! There’s the rlly bad choice you have to choose, or the really good choice. But you don’t really get to choose the one you want unless you have TONS of gems. And I mean TONS. Especially the pretty little liars. I honestly love it sm. But srsly? Almost 40 gems just to choose a good choice?! It makes me furious. Maybe have a limit for authors for about 10 gems per choice.
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.
