This game is fun, the stories are great, I like how the gems and tickets are available for free. However, the options you want to choose usually cost 25 gems and 10 gems at least. Gems are also ridiculously overpriced. You can earn gems for free by watching stupid mobile ads and completing offers that almost always don’t work. Also for tickets you have to wait 50 minutes for 1 ticket. Even after a week, you only get up to about 5 tickets. Also, the clothing costs 10 gems at least and around 50 gems at most. I dislike how premium clothes can only be worn up to 2 times. If you choose a free outfit, the other characters will overreact with shock and disgust, even if the free outfit is not ugly. This gets annoying after a while. I don’t blame the app for making the free outfits ugly, but when someone PAYS 50 gems for one stupid outfit can they at least make them reusable. After time, I stopped blowing my gems on outfits, because there is only so much gems you can spend on an outfit that does nothing to affect the outcome of the story. Also, some premium choices do little to affect the story’s outcome. I find that fact very disappointing. Other premium choices lead to conflict and drama. Overall, I enjoy this app, but I don’t think many people can really afford the unnecessary in app purchases.
I began playing this game with an open mind after being enticed by ads for it. First off, the female characters reminded me of giraffes— their shape, their stances, and their movement. It became quite distracting after a while. Next, it was not possible to play the game and be able to purchase premium options at the rate that one earned gems for free. I eventually purchased gems to get premium options only to see that it made ZERO difference to the story lines. However, if you didn’t choose premium outfits, scorn and ridicule was built into the story line, which is a pretty sad commentary about the shallow, self-absorbed state of today’s generation. Next, the sheer acceptability of having sex with whomever, whenever, and without any feeling or commitment whatsoever is off-putting at best, and appalling at worst. But my biggest complaint is that I have begun every story option available and many are not completed, i.e. it says “new chapters coming soon” and it’s been WEEKS and nary a new chapter has downloaded. I lost my daily reward progress because I am tired of re-reading chapters, even selecting different conditions and recognizing that it does not affect the outcome of the story. Not sure where the breakdown is, preventing new chapters from being created, but this is by far an example of how not to lifecycle manage a game. I am so sorry about all the money I have spent on this game. If you are considering getting it- DON’T!
this game is great and I genuinely enjoyed the stories as well as the gameplay, the different options that you have are fun and this game is really different than a lot of the other story telling apps out there. With that being said however, the amount of money this app is trying to charge is kind of ridiculous. You need “gems” for everything, instead of being able to say yes or no you’re able to say yes or pay 25 gems to say no; you’re not able to truly enjoy the gameplay without spending AT LEAST 100 gems every chapter. Gems aren’t easy to earn either and cost quite a bit of actual money if you decide to purchase them, not to mention the fact that they’re also used for clothing which costs anywhere from 10 gems to 50 gems! The other issue is tickets. You need tickets in order to read chapters, you can purchase tickets or earn one ticket after you’ve run out. It’s not practical, you also have the option of unlimited tickets for 2.99 a week or about $10 a month. I believe the developers need to take another look at who their target audience is, a lot of teens don’t really have that kind of money to be spending on an app. There should be other ways to earn tickets and gems especially since the app already requires you to watch a ridiculous amount of ads, we might as well be getting something for that.
To be fair this game is interesting to play and the stories are good. The sad part is that the choices you actually want cost gems. In order to get gems you have to pay and arm and leg. Even the cheapest gem amount is way over priced. With paying a lot for the min of gem it really only gives you enough for either the 1 choice you want or maybe the 1 outfit you want. This is ridiculous, what’s worse is that each choice you can pick is up to 25 gems that’s a lot, what’s the point in reading the stories if you don’t even get a chance of the outcome you want, very sad to me since some story lines are good. Another issue I had was once you buy an outfit you can only use it that once. Ummm like where’d you go? I paid a certain amount of money to be able to get the outfit I like just to have to pick the basic awful outfit that always get shamed. What kind of junk is that. Overall this game isn’t worth it if you don’t have a lot of extra money to spend because in the end you’ll be paying a ridiculous amount of money for nothing good. The only reason I’ve kept the game for a couple days now is because I liked the story I was one and already put some money into just to be disappointed when I just needed to be paying more. I ended up having to choose the things I didn’t want to. No recommended at all...
Honestly, I’m extremely fed up with this game. I think it’s exactly like another game I play. Except that The OTHER game is fairer! In this game, you have to spend a crap ton of gems on outfits and scenes. And you better have enough money, because if you don’t have gems, you have to buy the overpriced things in the shop. (KIDS DON’T HAVE MONEY, TAKE NOTE) If you don’t get the right outfit, something very unfair happens. The characters make fun of you! Yes, they literally say stuff like, “Oh Lucy, please tell me that your mom didn’t take all your good clothes!” No, I’m not kidding! Who designed that part, high schoolers?! It doesn’t seem right to me AT ALL because of experiences I’ve had in the past regarding looks. It hits close to home for me, which sounds stupid, I know. The subscriptions are also overpriced. The stories can be fun, I’ll admit that. They can be really cheesy but that does make them entertaining. I’d say that there are some good storylines in here. Cheesy, but entertaining. The overall idea if an interactive story app is a good one. But if you want to make it almost impossible to get the outfits that won’t get you made fun of, then don’t install this game. I didn’t mean to seem hateful in this review, but there are many flaws with this app. I’d appreciate it very much if they were fixed, but until then, you’ve lost me as your buyer.
