I downloaded this game for some reason that I still don’t know and I expected it to be a little ad infested, but I figured I’ll try it anyways and I soon fell in love with it. I love the storyline so far, but I have to admit that I get a little impatient when waiting for a letter, but that’s fine I just work on the shop a little and check back every few hours to refill stocks. I love the music and the little descriptions of items it gives you, I feel like it makes the game just a little bit more interesting. I want to get the $2.99 add on just for the music and I see people complain about how the prices say $0 and $2, but they’ll probably not buy it or if they bought it and didn’t check the little apple pop up asking for a password then they should be more aware. Overall I find the game calming and a great time killer with an amazing story so far.

This is a great game to play in the evening if your brain is refusing to shut down. You can turn off the sound effects and leave just the background music/soundtrack, which is just repetitive enough to be soothing but not annoying. You don’t need to spend money on this game, either; it’s a little slow if you only log in a couple times a day because you need to be in the game at various days of the week (in game time, not real time) to get all the items you need to complete the sets in your catalogue. But the customers don’t disappear if you don’t log in right away—they seem to wait around to “pay” even after you run out of merchandise, so there’s no mad rush to log in and collect. Nice, low-key game with a melancholy backstory.

This is the first time I’ve written an app review but I just had to give a shout out for this adorable and inventive game. I finished the game and am so sad it’s over. I love the inventiveness of it—like the names of the characters and the funny descriptions of the candy prizes! It’s also fun to learn something about Japanese sweets! Most of all this game is just so calming and pretty to look at! The cute shop, the street beyond, the little back room I wish I could have a cup of tea in, it’s really charming...! Plus it has a storyline with the letters you collect. Overall a really great game, simple, cute, fun, funny, creative and well thought out. Yay!

I started playing this game a couple of days ago. I paid $.99 for no ads. I played a little longer, then decided to pay the $2.00, which allegedly would give me twice as many customers. When I paid for the two dollar option, I was charged $2.99 rather than two dollars. Needless to say, I was seriously annoyed. Additionally, if one is tempted to stock one’s store with the Candy Palooza at 15,000 coins for fifteen minutes, DO NOT!!! Even with two ad bonuses within those fifteen minutes, it will not come close to recouping your money, and there is nothing else special for that amount of coins! I was interested to see how the story ended, which is why I continued to play, and paid what I thought was a couple of bucks for it.

This game will take a while to complete, and even then, you could continue selling candies if that's what you wish to do. The story is within the letters, and it might take a while to piece them together and understand, but as the final letters come you'll get it. As I mentioned before, this game is slow-paced and it takes selling candies and tapping and collecting to get to the end of the story. It's not a big finish, but it's definitely sweet. Id totally recommend it as a de-stresser game. There's no need to rush back to check your customers; they wait around until you tap them.
