Penelope Gator - Addicting game, but obnoxious interruptions
I love the addictive quality of this game, but there are many changes I would make. We don’t need all these garish-looking skins and animations; there are only 2-3 that I prefer to use. Additionally, I would gladly pay $3-5 for an ad-free version. Being constantly interrupted by ads is beyond annoying. Besides, coin accumulation is essentially pointless. I have nearly half a million coins, and the only way I spend them is on dynamite (which annoyingly takes way too long to restore).
My newest gripe is that there seem to be bugs in the most recent update. I’ll finish a level, but the game will sit there as if there are still blocks to clear. On the timed games, the timer will continue to run down. Once it runs out, I have to click the “add 15 seconds” button, sit through an ad, and then the timer again runs down with no blocks to clear. So it’s stuck in a loop until I go back to the main menu. It’s prevented me from advancing levels. FIX THIS PLEASE!!!
I'm way too bored - bruh
it’s always been full of bugs, but I’ve put those aside and still played the game. However, with whatever change came within the last day or so, the game isn’t enjoyable to play. Normal blocks continuously change into these “special blocks” that don’t even offer 50 coins, and when you click on them, you get interrupted with a screen giving you an option to double, triple, etc, the amount by watching an ad. And again, they don’t stop coming. You get rid of one? Now you got yourself another. But I mean, you have to get rid of them since they’ll block the other blocks, so it’s just a pain. Also, why do we even need these coin blocks?? There’re literally challenge levels that’ll give you 10k+ coins, that are extremely easy.
Not to mention that once you’ve bought those three skins at the top, and the other ones that are purchasable with coins (12 of them, at max costing 500~ish coins), that’s all that you can buy with coins. Your coins from there on just continue to pile up without having anything to spend them on. As I am right now, I’m currently sitting on roughly 544k coins, so why would I have any desire to earn more, especially if it continuously interrupts the normal gameplay?
Also, having ranks on the normal mode makes no sense. It doesn’t show any leaderboard, so you’re not competing with others, you barely earn a few coins, and like in the endless mode, it just interrupts the game whenever you reach a new rank.
Jonnie roten - Please develop a “no interruptions” option!
I’m glad I finally figured out where to purchase the add free version, but that hasn’t stopped the annoying game interruptions. The “special blocks” pop up non-stop and you have no choice but to click on them to get rid of them or they’ll get in the way of the game play. Then they bring you to an option to watch an add for more coins and it takes several seconds before you can just select to collect the coins you earn and get back to the game. The rank increases are also frequent but slightly less annoying since they’re quicker to dismiss away.
I’d rather collect no coins than have the constant interruptions. All you can buy with coins are the skins anyway and I personally prefer the one the game starts you with, so the coins are useless to me. Alternatively, if you could just have a mode that was no interruptions you could still click on the special blocks and they could automatically deposit into your coin account. Those that like the option to watch an add for more could have no interruptions off and it would allow for the best of both worlds. Your rank could also just update discretely on top without creating a pop-up for every new level.
I really hope the app developer reads these because it seems that many others who otherwise love this game have the same qualm with it!
Mamaofjz - Unhappy with update
In the beginning, I enjoyed the game but not the ads so I paid to play the ad free version. Like other players have mentioned, quite a few skins are hard on the eyes and some puzzles are too small and don’t enlarge well. But, I was ok with those quirks as the fish variation is easy on the eyes and the small puzzles are few and far between. I really just wanted a mostly mindless game to enjoy so the features were fine.
However, with the update, if you are playing the standard levels there is an incredibly annoying feature that changes playable blocks to gold. When you click them it takes you away from the game for a few coins or the option to watch an ad to get more coins. There does not currently seem to be a way to turn off the special gold blocks and I hate it. Not only can you not ignore the gold blocks but more and more gold blocks appear during the game. This in turn takes you out of the gameplay each time. I paid for the ad free version so I could play the game uninterrupted but this new feature is almost more annoying. If the developers don’t offer an option to opt out of that feature, I will consider uninstalling the game. I’m currently only playing the endless feature but that is dull as the puzzle is only a cube.
Devil's Wife - Too easy
I saw an ad for this that looked challenging and fun. I figured it would start off easy; it did. I expected it to get harder; it hasn’t yet. Unfortunately that means repetitive and boring. I just got the game yesterday so maybe I’ll play a little more before deleting, but I’m on something like level 115 already and it’s all the same. Even the “challenges” are the same. Another irritating thing is some of the skins are very hard on my eyes, some make it difficult to determine depth, some are difficult to “read” (as in hard to tell the arrows are arrows let alone which way they are pointing). The eyestrain is not fun at all so I end up going back to the original skin. I wanted to like this, I really wanted to like it. The potential is there. Maybe if more of it was like the ad where some of the blocks are different sizes and the player has to move (instead of remove) some blocks in order to remove others. Maybe if there were ways for the player to get stuck. Maybe if I hadn’t mastered it in 10 seconds…
Another suggestion to the developers: please don’t ask for a review so soon after someone downloads the game. At least give the player time to get to more challenging levels first (this is a double hint).
Note: I played offline. Thank you to those reviewers that warned about the excessive advertisements.
Stephnelson1028 - SO MANY ADS
there are seriously sooooo many ads that pop up in this game that it is impossible to ignore. I know they want you to buy the ad free version but the game is not good enough for me to spend money on. It’s a great concept for a puzzle game and fun without being too challenging, but the ads are just too much. There also these “special blocks” that pop up everywhere and you are forced to click on them and those prompt more ads. I also hated that it would produce this screen randomly during play that says you increased your rank or something along those lines. It stops your playing the game and then again is more ads. I also did not like the mechanics for being able to move the puzzle around. You could not move the puzzle around or zoom in on a certain spot. All it does is rotate so it is very frustrating to try and complete larger puzzles when you want to be able to take a closer look at a particular spot. Overall I give it literally one star for the concept. Everything else is terrible. I’m disappointed because I really was looking forward to playing this game. I knew right away when I opened it that i was going to get too frustrated with it and have to delete because every game I have downloaded by this company has been the same. Great concept but the app itself is terrible and not worth the time or money.
Slicole - Really boring and gave me a headache
I love puzzle games and downloaded this from an ad I saw. The gameplay was pretty much exactly what was shown in the ad, which was nice. However, I got bored of this game almost immediately. There’s no real challenge in solving the puzzles, so it just feels tedious. Also, you get an ad after clearing every level AND after you’ve made a certain number of moves in the larger-scale “challenge” levels, which continually disrupts the gameplay. I didn’t feel that the puzzles were worth watching all these ads. Also, the large-scale levels are really annoying to play. The size of the entire block arrangement is so big that the individual blocks are tiny on the screen. You can zoom in, but you can’t control how much to zoom in—it’s either zoomed all the way out or all the way in. Zoomed out, the blocks are tiny, and I had to strain my eyes to try to see the path of each block. Also, when I tried to select a block, sometimes my finger would accidentally hit the block next to it (because the blocks are so tiny), and I would lose a move. Zoomed in, you can’t see enough of the overall arrangement to see the path of a block, so that view is pretty much useless. I got a headache from playing just one of the challenge levels, so I deleted the app. Not worth it at all.
Vickilovesheriphone - PAID NO-ADS, TOOK MY MONEY THEN SAID “DIDN’T GO THROUGH
I paid twice the $4.99 to remove the ads, and twice, my money was deducted, then TWICE, I got the “Could not finish purchase, check your internet.” BULL$**T! (The only reason why I happened to do it twice is because I had forgotten that I did this a month prior and at the time I was playing a bunch of new games so I’d actually forgotten that I already purchased no ads) My Internet was completely fine and it still deducted the money from my account, and the ads were still there. I tried hitting “restore purchases,“ and it still didn’t work. I emailed them through their website and sent a separate email and still have gotten NO response. Finally I asked Apple for a refund and the problem with that is I can only ask for one refund so I’m still out five bucks! It’s very annoying to have the money taken out and still have to watch through their 50 million ads. If they would fix that issue I’d actually be pretty happy with the game. And there was another user who said the developers don’t seem to be reading these comments and I would have to agree that that is true. I don’t understand these app developers, once they start making their millions of dollars, they abandon the players who are making them rich, it’s absolutely despicable!!!!!!
Thejayco - Fun game, no goals whatsoever
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed playing this game. It’s a great one to clear your mind and pass the time. There is one clear problem though. Even though it’s perfect to just play and put down, picking it right back up where you left off, there’s literally no reason to play. In fact I went as free, which I never do. Here’s the problem, there are no real goals. Progressing levels is okay, but no real rewards for it. The daily goals award coins, which are totally useless. The bar at the top that progresses it’s just a countdown timer to ads, because that bar awards..coins. The challenges can be really interesting but again…coins. I’m on level 75 with nearly 80,000 coins and nothing to spend them on. If coins are the reward but nothing to use them on, it makes the reward useless.
Skins are kind of cool but the basic ones are easily the best to use, it may be useful to have different unlock able backgrounds? Some of the themes are interesting but take away from the game itself.
Like I said, fun game to okay by itself, the “reward” system has no meaning. That may be why other users are annoyed with the constant interruptions while playing ad free.
Buckerooski - Okay, but change these 2 things
1. On endless mode, every time you gain a global rank, the gameplay stops and you’re interrupted with a message that says that your global rank has increased. That stopping is so frustrating! Just when I get into a flow, it feels abrupt and jarring, frequently. I suggest you find a way to congratulate the player without stopping the gameplay, even briefly. I should be able to keep playing without having the screen hijacked to congratulate me for continuing to play. Make it a tiny message, icon or animation somewhere on the screen that doesn’t interfere with me continuing to play. I paid for ads so my gameplay would stop being interrupted; not sure why you’re so intent on continuing to interrupt it.
2. Zooming in and rotating is frustrating when the puzzle is large, because the pieces are very small at times. The problem is that you can’t strafe, or move sideways without rotating the entire puzzle. How about a two-finger swipe to move you around on the player’s X and Y axes without rotating the puzzle? (You already have pinch to zoom to manipulate the Z axis.) Think like you’re panning on a zoomed-in 2D photo.
Elusivelyalive - Enjoy but some bugs
I paid to remove ads and now I can’t reset any level and start over. I have to watch the video for an additional 10 moves. I don’t wanna watch videos that’s why I paid not no ads, I’d rather just solve the puzzles. I find it very cathartic and I really enjoy it but now it’s annoying when I get to the end because I can’t reset the level so I have to play on no matter what. It blows. Also I hate the little gold boxes that pop us. I get it they have money but it takes forever for the button to pop up so I can bypass the coin multiplier. Honestly theres not even a lot of uses for the coins so I feel like you guys should just take that out and have a simple tap the gold box for coins.
Overall it’s only a 3 because the actual puzzle part is fun and I like the different skins because some are easier to solve with while others make it harder (in my opinion). Without the content being there I’d rate it a 1 for structure because honestly it makes no sense. It’s wayyyy too similar to parking jam but In this game the layout doesn’t make complete sense. It almost feels like a lazy copy/paste.
Lowell S - Too many interruptions and bugs
Update: recent versions are so buggy, with so many interruptions to gameplay, I’m deleting the game, notwithstanding my recent purchase. It’s not worth it, how much this game leaves me annoyed. For example: the new “special” block feature. Don’t leave a special block to be the last one you clear, or you might get stuck/trapped in an empty level with no way to progress forward. Like I am.
Original: Bought this game a few weeks ago because gameplay was chill and there were WAY too many ads in the free version. It was great for a few weeks. Fantastic way to pass time if that’s what you’re looking for. But the last couple of updates have been really disappointing. First was an update that apparently broke some of the 3D textures on my phone (iPhone 12 Pro) … instead of gold reflective I get buggy, flat hot pink. Destroys what was my favorite skin to play. Multiple reboots and OS patches have not fixed it. Then there was the update so it now interrupts gameplay every minute or so to tell me that I’m advancing to a new “rank”. Talk about annoying! Please make it so I can opt out of these constant pop ups. Honestly, I like the game but I’m about to uninstall unless it stops going downhill.
KathrinWebb - If Ads Annoy You, Walk Away
I really enjoy playing this game, the mechanics of it at least. It’s relaxing and satisfying to complete a level, and the sculptures the blocks make are fun to try and figure out.
The skins are lackluster (except for like, 2 of them). There’s not enough variation in color and not much detail in the backgrounds; most of them are a solid color as though the sculpture is floating in an uncanny void.
And MY GOD THE ADS. Depending on how quickly you solve these puzzles, you could run into an ad as frequently as every minute. And they’re not even good or entertaining ads! Most of them are created in an ad engine and thus don’t even accurately represent the actual game they’re advertising. They’re dumb, shallow and downright irritating.
I have a feeling if they made the ads less frequent, they’d have more players, which would mean they could leverage for more expensive ad rates which means their advertisers would want to make their ads better quality to make the most of that slot - and then I might actually stick around for the ads rather than closing out the game almost every time one plays.
Yesacarch126 - Not happy. Developers please read. This has to be a bug
This game used to be great to play. This is why I chose to not watch ads and decided to pay for the ad-free option. The problem with this is that they also changed what happens when you press the reset button. It no longer gives you new cubes, it just explodes the view, and then re-lines them up giving you the same amount of cubes you had. You are now forced into playing the puzzle even though you know you are going to lose. So you explode as many as you can with the bombs, but they take forever to reset. Now once I’m out of moves I CAN’T just go onto the next puzzle. The game gives you the option of watching a video for 10 more moves. If you press retry, the puzzle forces you to just continue with ZERO moves, not to start over. You are then forced into watching the ads in order to get extra moves so that you can finally end the game. It’s just a way for the game to make money off of people who have already paid for an ad free service. I can find some other game to dull my find. A game like this doesn’t warrant spending so much money.
TarnishedMyth42 - Well that was anti-climactic
So they had a feature in the new endless mode but if you collected in boxes is generally one entire layer and then a half another layer you got a free boost and it would remove an entire layer for you which is great. Like many of their other games they also have challenges to finish. One of the major ones is to finish and acquire perhaps five boosts in InBliss. This wasn’t too hard if you worked really diligently clearing boxes. However they now want you to watch an ad for every boost that to fulfill the boost challenges. And now you have to have 8-13 boosts per that Boost Challenge. You now have to watch a crap ton of ads just to fulfill this challenge i’m getting all these boosts and endless mode. I’m not happy about this, because there’s already a crap ton of ads that come up every time you play a new level, and every time that it switches to a new layer on the boxes this is gosh dang ridiculous. Not cool. At all. IF YOU ARE READING THIS AND DISLIKE THE ADS, put your phone in airplane mode or disable WiFi for this specific app. It will help cut down the ads unless you want to intentionally watch an ad to skip something.
Mm games - Very fun, except for
Overall, very fun and great way to kill time. I agree with others’ comments about the game interruptions. I don’t care about earning coins, special blocks, level up, or even so many skins. I like the different color blocks with simple arrows. I paid to get rid of ads, so the interruptions are still bothersome.
I’d also like some more shapes, I’ve been through all the options several times. Now when a new puzzle starts, I usually think, “that one again?” And last, I think there must be a glitch or something with the challenges, they don’t always work. One was stuck on Reach level 69 when I had past 100. I had to watch a video to get it to go away. There are several that were like that.
I’d gladly give 5 stars for no interruptions, and more levels (different shapes, not repeats).
Thanks for a fun game!!!
ClassyBrass - Hate the changes
The new gold cubes that are supposed to be a reward all they do is interrupt play. You can’t go past certain cubes without stopping to acknowledge these stupid cold cubes that don’t give you much at all. All they do is encourage you to watch a video. I paid so I don’t have to watch the stupid ads. I don’t care about having more points, because the points really don’t give you any advantage. For me it’s just aMindless activity to help me destress. But, when you have to stop the game to deal with the stupid cold cubes, and every time you reach a new level you have to stop the game to acknowledge the new level. This game isn’t fun. The whole point for me with this game is to distress. I don’t need to stop the game to doThese tasks that have no purpose. If you don’t either given the option to not have these tasks or eliminate them all together I’m going to stop playing the game. Losing me may mean nothing, however in reading the recent reviews, it appears mine is not the only opinion like this. I haven’t seen anybody who seems to enjoy the changes that you have made. You might wanna roll those changes back, or I may not be the only customer you lose.
L2wannabe - Honest review
I like this type of puzzle game so I actually paid the money for the ads to be taken out. There were far too many to play for any long period of time to not do that but I waited and put up with the ads until I knew I’d spend a good bit of time playing.
I’m on level 300+ and after awhile I noticed that they just recycle the same puzzle shapes over and over which gets a bit boring. I wish they’d add some more content to the game. They do have plenty of different styles of puzzle blocks but I generally just stick with the same one anyway.
I play on my iPhone and the screen is pretty big but sometimes when the puzzle is large, the individual blocks get so small that it’s impossible to use your fingers and I have to find a stylus to use. If you have any kind of problem with your eyesight or dexterity don’t bother downloading this game because it will only frustrate you!
All of that being said, I still use this app to fill in time gaps during the day because I find it somewhat challenging and still entertaining.
Shells2022 - Enjoyable with frustration
I enjoyed the game so I purchased it to get away from adds. Frustrating and very annoying part: each level the games jumps a level up screen and you have to select to play on. Then there is the special box that you must remove some to clear boxes…I find that annoying since it jumps to a screen to show how many extra coins just earned. It would be nice to show all of that at the end of the level. Now the most frustrating part is I am stuck on level 73. I almost finished that level one night but I stopped the game and now I am stuck on level 73. I can clear all the blocks and nothing at all. That right there makes me regret paying for the game. I absolutely hate paying for games unless I really enjoy it. I almost came close asking a refund from apple on this game. I have also emailed the developer twice and no response yet. Just last week I emailed them about my level 73 issue and thank them for the new version that offered the feature to turn off the level up and special box feature but now that is gone. 😖😣🤬😡🤬
Qiwhsbxjxisjsne - Reset button
This game was so fun and I had a really so time playing it and enjoyed playing it on long car rides. There are many nice things about it like, not a lot of ads, and you don’t need internet to play the game. There are also some bad things about this game like, it is very time consuming, and the levels are hard, and the title of this review, THE RESET BUTTON. I was playing the game and I was about to finish the level with a good amount of blocks left, and I went to click a block to make it float away and the block was apparently too close to the reset button because when I clicked the button all of the blocks reappeared and all of my progress was destroyed and my hour trying to pass the level was gone. I was confused for a moment until I realized that a bit of my finger was on the reset button. Being fully honest I feel like it is a very good game but I think that the reset button is a bit to big and should be put on a different part of the screen so this won’t happen again to anyone.
Hevans84 - Stuck on level 73
You guys did another update yesterday but not to address the complaints everyone has. We are still all stuck on different levels and there are still entirely too many ads even after paying for ad free version.
Y’all did an update on Dec 5th but it did NOT fix the issue of getting stuck on levels with only a puzzle piece and special block left and not being able to move on to the next level. Ridiculous that I paid this app and can’t even continue to play. I even started over at level one and went all the way through to level 73 again and it still only has a puzzle piece and special block. No way to move forward. Expecting an update to fix it soon or I will be filing for a refund. After paying for the app I’m currently stuck on level 73. No blocks appear. It only gives me 1 puzzle piece and 1 special block that earns me coins. When I click these then the screen is clear but it doesn’t move me to the next level. There are no blocks to move to get to the next level so it just sits there on level 73.
Tiffanapolis - This used to be a 5 star app.
I’ve played this game for a couple years; since before it was “3D”. It was simple yet challenging and quite addictive. L O V E D it. And then the upgrades started. ‘Zoom’ is a new feature; except it’s either in or out without any in between. You can see the block you’re tapping but not its path. Very frustrating. ‘Moves’ are also new; which is a definite drawback for people like me who don’t have steady hands. There’s no option to choose this feature or not, unless you’re content with the boring (and unchallenging) infinity cube. Finally - and this is the most infuriating part of all - do not click out of the game for any incoming messages, notifications, phone calls, etc. When you switch back, your entire progress resets; regardless of how far you were in the puzzle. It’s heartbreaking to struggle with the disadvantages to 275 moves into a 300+ move piece and have to take a phone call knowing it was all in vain. I reached out via email to Popcore over an issue with the ads early on, received a generic response, replied to them, and never heard back. Unfortunately, do not recommend this game any longer.
Stellarays - No pop-ups please!!!
Coming on here to say what many others have. I honestly can’t believe I forked over $5 for ad-free, but I really like the concept and enjoy playing. Despite that I can’t even get a full minute of gameplay that isn’t interrupted by the stupid gold cubes or leveling up. I would rather have no coins than deal with the special cubes. Please get rid of all the pop-ups! They make me want to delete the app all together.
Also, please work on optimizing the game overall. The only skin I can use is the original one and even that one can hurt my eyes with how bright the colors are if I move the puzzle a certain way. Please make it so the puzzles fit better on phone screens, as they are usually too small and when I zoom in it becomes impossible to tap some of the cubes no matter how I move the puzzle without zooming out. You should be able to move to all parts of the puzzle. The rotation is fun, but makes it impossible to tap all the cubes at certain zoom levels and angles.
KayVeeZee - Relatively fun game with way too many bugs
First things first, I don’t know if the app has a problem with my phone, but the app completely freezes every time I tap on a special block (little golden blocks that pop up and give you coins). And I mean EVERY TIME. It makes the game almost unplayable. I have to close out the app and re open it every time I tap a special block. I don’t even want the coins, but if you don’t move the special blocks they block the other ones from being moved. Once, the game glitched out and zoomed in on a present block and wouldn’t show me the rest of the blocks I needed to complete the level. I had to restart the level.
The other problem I have is pretty similar to other people’s problem, it really just doesn’t get more difficult. Like at the beginning you start off with a few blocks at a time, and then suddenly you’re doing several hundred blocks and from there it just never gets harder, the levels seem randomized. And it takes forever to earn challenge levels that actually do increase in difficulty.
Repetitive Ad Despiser - I hate this game.
I bought this game so I could escape the ceaseless parade of 30+ second ads it showed for other games. It kept trying to entice me to watch more ads with endless simplistic”puzzles” whose only purpose was to make you watch more ads. I’m now up to Level 588 - obviously I used to like it a lot! - and on two turns in a row the only thing it would allow me to do was to attempt to click 4-6 cubes with only one click. The only way it would allow you to proceed was to “purchase” 10 more clicks by watching a 30-second ad. Quitting and restarting the game multiple times had no effect. It always brought you immediately back to the same choice. It was like a episode of The Twilight Zone! Exasperated, I finally gave in and let the hateful ad play - with my iPad face down on the floor. I got through that and figured that now I could once again play this relaxing game. The very next game it gives me six cubes to click with only 1 available click, unless of course I watch another of their damnable ads. This game (Tap Away) and the company that spawned it (Popcore GmbH) are now dead to me forever!!!!!!
Bowerspd - Glitchy
I love the game but there’s a few things that turn me off when playing. The tap counter does not work correctly it says you have so many taps but it takes away multiple taps with one tap it is upsetting to have only tapped twice and have 6 taps be counted and taken off. The other issue is the frequency of ads throughout each level every 45 seconds to every minute it’s extremely excessive and frustrating and a 30 seconds ad for 10 extra moves that you don’t get because of the counter glitching is very annoying when I have to watch 8 30 seconds adds to complete the level. The last thing is bad lagging when you play longer than 30 minutes it gets extremely lagging and glitches worse which drains my battery quickly. I love playing this game but the glitches and excessive ads make it one of the last I go to play. Would love to see these things fixed so I can play more without feeling annoyed on the first level I play when opening it.
Ughtsug - Used to like; now really annoying
I started out really liking this game a lot, but now it's *really* annoying. Another reviewer, Jonnie Roten, said it very well: "The 'special blocks' pop up non-stop and you have no choice but to click on them to get rid of them or they'll get in the way of the game play. Then they bring you an option to watch an ad for more coins and it takes several seconds before you can just select to collect the coins... to get back to the game." The level increases are frequent, but they also come with ads; however, these ads are slightly less annoying, because they are easier to dismiss.
Further from Jonnie Roten: "I'd rather collect no coins than have the constant interruptions. All you can buy with coins are the skins anyway and I personally prefer the one the game starts you with, so the coins are useless to me."
It seems this applies even if you buy the ad-free version. When it started out, there were very few popups; now, they are everywhere. I will no longer play this game.
WistfulWonder - Fun but buggy :/
I love this game, but with the feature that you level up and then gold coin blocks appear makes the game glitch like crazy. I HAVE to click those boxes so I can finish a level, and no matter whether I choose to watch an add to get the extra amount of coins or if I settle for the smaller amount, the game freezes once the coins are accepted and I cannot continue gameplay unless I completely close out and force quit the app. And the problem with this is it makes playing the game incredibly annoying and kills even more of my phone battery. Not to mention that every time I force quit and have to reopen the app to continue the level, sometimes it will start the entire level over again and the load screen takes a little bit of time as it is. It’s frustrating to get almost completely through a level, just to have to click a gold coin box to finish the level, and have the level completely restart after that.
Gordo6531 - Fun
Update- I still enjoy playing the game, but…
-1. I have to agree with another player in that during endless mode, I don’t want to be interrupted. I can see my level at the top. I should be able to click on an icon to view my global ranking and not have that interrupt my play.
-2. Please remove all of the icons surrounding the playing area. I have, on more than one occasion, tried to tap a box only to inadvertently reset my game or go to endless mode (and when I go back my game is reset). Also, I’d like to be able to confirm whether or not I want to use a bomb; there’s no way to retract it if it’s accidentally hit. All of these features can be made to be accessed through a menu icon and endless mode should be accessed from the welcome/Home Screen.
-3. Please remove the requirement to click the golden boxes. I don’t want, or have a need for, more coins. All these boxes do is interrupt game play for no beneficial reason. ***For the reasons listed above, I have lowered my rating to 3 stars.
I enjoy playing this game as it helps to shut my mind down when I get into bed. My only complaints are 1-having to constantly watch ads to open boxes. I paid to have no ads, not half of the ads. 2- the golden box that was recently added freezes the game after you click the box. The only way to get back to the game is to close out the app and then open it back up. Please fix. Otherwise this is a fun and relaxing game.
LuvWordsBest - Great Concept, Poorly Executed
I was enticed to get this game after viewing an ad for it in a different 3D game I enjoy. The ad showed a very challenging multi tiered block which would be definitely be so much fun to play. The actual game however starts with a single block, then 2, then 4 and so on which is okay to get you familiar with how to move the blocks. But after 20 levels it’s still at this ridiculously easy puzzle and boredom is setting in. It reminds me of the parking cars game where you have to mindlessly go through 25-50 stupidly simple lots that are no fun at all in order to get access to one that’s a little challenging and fun to play. And the frequency of ads is quite maddening, I think more so than any other game I’ve tried. So this game is getting deleted for me. Such a shame because the potential is definitely there. Note to developers: I’d gladly pay $$ for the challenging games you show in your ads you conveniently place in other games. And I’d even pay an additional fee for an ad free version. I’m sure others feel the same. Is that concept even considered these days?
AshB1717 - Ads Ruined It
I was willing to sit through an ad here or there to play this game but by the time I reached level 11 I knew I couldn’t continue. Not only are there ads between the levels, they have them in the middle of game play. Not just one or two either. There are at least TEN 60 second ads in level 11 alone. That’s after I have already watched over half a dozen repetitive ads to get there. Plus the game interrupts play to tell you that you “level up” and then they change the skin half way through a level. You can’t skip the ads, you can’t pass the level without removing the boxes, and you can’t pay off of WiFi bc the boxes won’t unlock without WiFi. The only reason this is being rated two stars and not less is because I feel like I could have actually liked this game. Dial down the ads and it could actually be enjoyable.
People jump on their phones to play games sometimes when they only have a brief moment to do so. I won’t keep a game that takes that time with ads.
Rarityrises - Way too many ads!!
So I got this game for a new challenge, it’s about the same as the traffic jam. Except levels 1 through 10, there is a ad in between each level… okay I can deal with that. However once you hit level 10, you get a 325 move puzzle which was great until every 10 moves Im being forced to watch ANOTHER ad!!!! Not just the quick ad that you can exit out of after 5 seconds… nope full 30 + seconds of ads! It took my “relaxing time” and turned it into a new level of frustration! $4.99 to remove the ads could be worth it, if it actually works! I paid for ad removal from this company before and it was fine for awhile. Then they found new ways to make you watch the darn ads anyway! To collect your coins … watch an ad, to get MORE coins watch a ad… because they give so few coins, to open challenge levels you have to watch ads to get the coins! I love the concept but I’ll be deleting this game because of the tons of ads you just can’t get away from even if you pay.
Srtsammi - Constant Interruptions
Let me first say I do really enjoy this game, however I can't enjoy it to its fullest potential due to the constant interruptions.
If you choose to play with wifi or data on, you can expect to have frequent ads. These will be after every level, after every phase in endless, in the middle of levels, and sometimes in the middle of an endless phase.
With the recently added "special block" feature, which you have to tap because it replaces another block in your game, causes a pop up which you either have to watch an ad or wait a few seconds in order to close. The only reward for this is coins.
Coins have very little purpose because you can only use them for a few skins in the shop and a power up on normal mode that is set on a cooldown timer. Endless mode also has a power up that you have to watch an ad in order to activate.
Endless mode and normal mode have frequent interruptions when you "rank up".
Challenge levels can be attempted once and if you fail, you have to watch an ad in order to try again.
Another feature I would like to have would be to rotate the structure with a button rather than an endless scroll because you can't always fit it in your screen and sometimes it appears that the little square will clear but then it can't. I would also like the big rectangle shapes as shown in the ads for this game.
Jp_allen - Why pay for ad free? There’s still ads!
Wife has this game on her iPad, i tried it out and liked it. Got it on my iPad but don’t like ads popping up, so I paid the $4.99 to remove ads. Within 15 minutes of playing the “Endless” mode I get to a gift box within the puzzle that I have no other option but to tap it, and what do you think happened? An ad pops up, and it’s not one of those wait 15-20 seconds and you can skip it, no no no, it’s pretty much a full minute or longer before you can even get out of it. I figured ok, maybe that was my fault. Play the game for a few minutes longer and win some new ability or feature to use in the endless mode, button pops up at the bottom of my screen to use it, I tap it, and guess what?!? I’m back in another ad that I can’t skip. Why did I even spend the $4.99 for ad free when within 18 minutes of playing the game I’m getting ads? I’d like a refund on my “Remove ads” payment, very misleading and the developer certainly is not upholding their end of the purchase. Reported to Apple as well.
Nt.Eq.sm - Stop interrupting the play
Really enjoyed this game to help me relax and just chill out. It’s not very difficult and you can just get a great groove going. When I first started playing the ads bothered me and so I paid for no ads. Totally worth it as the interruptions of the ads really take away from what I want from the game.
However, the game is determined to keep interrupting you!! In endless mode you get notified about levels. This is irritating but endless mode is not my favorite as it seems to be just a cube. In my preferred mode the latest frustration are these ‘special blocks’ that are gold and pull you out to give you coins and try to get you to watch an ad for more coins. I could really care less about the coins. I only like the basic skin and have no use for them. I can’t figure out a way to turn these blocks off and you can’t even ignore them as they keep coming even if you haven’t gotten the previous ones. And they obscure other blocks you need so eventually you have to click on them to finish the puzzle.
There are also difficulties zooming in for puzzles as you cannot slide the puzzle around, just rotate it and zoom. So often you cannot line the edges of the puzzles with your screen properly. I can deal with this but not if I keep getting pulled out of the game for useless stuff I don’t need or care about.
Just let me play the game I paid for! At least give us the option to turn these “special blocks” off.
Loralieshahan - Great concept, too many adds, poorly developed
The concept of this game is very interesting but it is so poorly designed and developed that it doesn’t keep your interest. I have played for a couple weeks now and I’m so bored with it. They need to work on better puzzles n making them much harder as they go on. It’s just the same puzzles over and over. The zoom needs to be improved. This game could be so much more but it’s lacking as is. The developers need to take time to update and make more options, harder puzzles, fix the zoom and overall better their concept to what it could be. That would keep us playing and waiting to come back to the game instead of getting bored. And oh my god the adds!!!! Way way way too many. The faster you clear a board the more adds you see and I came across several adds that would come up n you couldn’t close. Which in turn I would have to close the game and restart it each time. When you have that many ads you end up closing the game a lot to just continue the board so so so so annoying!!!!!
I heart liam - Fun game with couple ideas!
I’ve been enjoying the game! I flew through most in a couple of days and now and have to agree it is simple but in a fun and enjoyable way. 8^) However, now that I am at that apex of completion, I have nothing to spend my coins on. I use Bombs and spend where I can.
My first recommendation is for some further coin incentives. This change may take away the “boredom” comments I read throughout these game reviews and increase interest or goals?? Otherwise what’s the point of those little ads every 36 moves or the special coin find that you can skip past to earn a couple of useless coins??
My second recommendation is for some music! It would be a fun achievement along with each of the other items. (Spend some of the money we don’t know what to do with). I think it is a great gaming change from other types of games that have the same repetitive sound throughout. ** For reference: A wonderful example to listen/look at is in another Apple Arcade game called “Solitaire Stories” by Red Games, Co. In that game, there is music at different levels to enjoy and achieve. A most Surprising point in their music is the quality and variety. I know you can’t copy, but it would be a great idea generator.
Thanks for Listening!!!
Texassews - Ads galore
I paid for the ad free version and that was not worth it. Still got ads. Don’t buy the ad free version. Also, I was in the middle of a game, and because I was winning, they changed me to a totally different new game and different cubes. I didn’t even get to finish the game I was winning. The game idea is well thought out and fun to play, but the developers and owners have made the game just the opposite. I deleted the app, but they got my money. What a rip off! This is the deal….You buy the apps nowadays, and they have the very irritating ads. This happens all the time. So you pay to not have to be subjected to them. By some clause in the PAID FOR app free version, they still put them in. The coins you win in this particular game can be had ad free, but if you want them increased you will get ads regardless, even if you have paid not to have them. Apple, if you are reading this, I am getting very sick of getting ripped off. Please change this. I am not the only one who feels this way.
Unvbama - Too many pop-ups
There are a bunch of meaningless pop-ups that disrupt gameplay.
Every time you level up (which is a pointless metric) it covers your screen and you must close it before resuming play.
There are golden blocks that pop up in the middle of your puzzle and you must click on them in order to removed them, otherwise, they block you from completing the puzzle. These blocks give you coins used for skins which I don't want. The coin reward is a pop-up with an option to watch an add for bonus coins. It takes a couple seconds before being able to say “no thanks” and exit out. These things happen around a minute or sooner to each other and get tiring quickly. It feels like a chore to get to play the actual game. I also wish that there were levels shaped like cubes instead of planes and rings and other random things that didn't feel very fun to solve.
Phoneguy! - Challenging app. Enjoy playing
I like the challenge. You have to look for all the possible paths that each cube can travel. It is a fun game. Not only is the game challenging but also all the ads. After you have passed several levels you earn more ads! After even more levels it limits you to only 10 moves (you can do in 30 to 40 seconds) and then you get to watch about 2 minutes of ads. 10 more moves more ads. Most of your time you are waiting for the little X to appear so you can close that ad so you can see the next one. Sometimes they’ll even repeat an ad. 2 or 3 times.” And as the number of cubes increases, the speed slows down. The processor works harder and the battery goes down faster.
I like the challenge of the game but it’s not worth waiting on all the ads.
Dorsmiles - Dor
Ads, ads, ads and more ads! Love the concept of this game BUT the ads ens it for me. I tracked the ads interruptions and this is what I got from a single game. 11 ads and about 5 minutes.
Level 42, 383 moves available for this guitar shape puzzle.
23 moves, 12 second ad
37 moves, 23 second ad
36 moves, 25 second ad
35 moves, 17 second ad
38 moves, 21 second ad
32 moves, 35 second ad
42 moves, 23 second ad. The ads get you nothing, just interruption.
138 move available BUT no possible moves. For 100 gold coins, I used a bomb that cleared about 5 blocks. Still no possible moves. Another 100 gold coins for a bomb that only cleared 2 blocks. You can’t guide the bomb to any target area either.
31 moves, 44 second ad. 93 moves available and now increased difficulty. Not all moves strike.
44 moves, 34 second ad
46 moves, NO more available. You can get 10 more by watching an ad. Ad was 40 seconds. There are only 7 blocks remaining on the board, I now have the 10 available moves.
I made 3 moves and got an 18 second ad. Prize after clearing the board was 100 gold coins. I sent twice that for 2 useless bombs.
And as for the ad times; they show that an ad will take 5, 10, 20, 30, seconds, NOT. After the ad ends, good luck getting out of it. Worst one is that Royal Match, close the game app, the App Store or Safari, then open game app again, you might still be in the same place.
BueshMech - Too Many Add Popups
I hate how many times a pop up interrupts game play. It’s like every 10 seconds, you get an ad or you get a golden box of coins, which creates a pop up that allows you to play a game to double your money by watching an ad. Then the coins you get can buy three things and then that’s it, the many coins you receive are basically useless. There are only 60 levels plus some side games. If you want to replay a side game, you need to watch an ad, even after you purchase the game. I purchased the add free version and guess what, I still get those stupid golden boxes of coins which create the game by watching an ad. You should at least let us buy more moves in the game when we run out, or be able to replay a side level without watching an ad, then the coins would be something people would want. Overall I am very unhappy with my purchase. Please remove the requirement to watch an ad to play a side level and create more levels!
Big J Bonk - Eh, it's alright.
Not much to say here that hasn't already been said, so I'll just summarize the main points.
-big levels with fun shapes (after some small "tutorial" levels)
-difficult challenges (timed and memory)
-passes the time
-has a zoom function
-endless mode has exclusive rewards that are generally easy to obtain
-excessive ads (every minute or two, or 30-50 blocks cleared)
-challenges get redundant
-no variation in gameplay
-zoom is either too close or nothing at all, and doesn't aim well
-not hard at all, save for a mild difficulty spike early on where the levels just suddenly get bigger
-little incentive to keep earning coins after about 60 levels (anything you can use the coins on has probably already been obtained)
-unlockables are mostly lackluster
-endless mode has a fake ranking system (you'll start at about #1.5m worldwide, and progress a handful of spots with every rank based on the number of blocks cleared, but if you put the game down for a while you'll find you somehow jumped up like 10k spots)
-coins underutilized (cosmetics only, not for powerups almost at all)
-collectibles necessitate watching ads
So, there are a lot of cons. The pros are JUST good enough to play a level or two here and there, but the reward slope is so shallow and the gameplay so samey, it almost isn't worth the constant ads alone.
Dimarias - Bad Update- gold boxes and ranks
Very annoying update of gold boxes and ranks that you can’t turn off. I think maybe it’s to slow down player because levels are too easy. Just make levels harder to beat. These two updates are useless to the game and annoying when you are trying to play and you have to pause to be told a rank or to get coins that you can’t spend on anything. Invest time into more unique and challenging levels and make it so you can turn off rank and gold boxes. I enjoyed the game before this update.
Edit— stuck on a glitched level 500. It only has a present and nothing else. Says I have taps but it won’t clear the box. Stuck in the glitch and can’t play the game. Restarting the level doesn’t do anything. Stopped using the app a few months ago, thought they’d have an update by now that may clear the issue but it’s still stuck.
Zen Homer - Latest update ruined the fun with bugs
I enjoyed this simple, calm, addictive game.
But the latest update ruined it for me. First is the constant special blocks that keep popping up, blocking everything, they’re not so special. If you get 15 of them a game. Get rid of them you have to leave the screen and watch a video or wait so many seconds before you can go back to the game. if you don’t, then they block the play and you can’t do anything can’t finish the round.
The second problem is the constant leveling up, but you’re not really leveling up, I’ve got to figure out how it works but each round. I’m leveling up about three times. I mean I enjoy the game but it’s just become annoying. The calm simplicity of it is gone for me now I don’t play it nearly as much as I used to. Let me know if you guys decide to fix the bugs and maybe I’ll come back.
I am a pepsi drinker - The new update has gold tiles that constantly take you to ads
First, I paid to have an ad free game. I truly loved the game until all the GOLD SQUARES WERE ADDED THAT GIVE YOU NO CHOICE, BUT YOU ARE TAKEN OUT OF THE GAME WHERE YOU MUST WAIT WHILE YOU CAN TRY TO GET A HIGH MULTIPLIER, TO GET COIN. if you chose not to play, you are allowed to exit back to the game you were enjoying, not always in the same position you were playing, with now, even more gold squares, that you must remove, and when you do, back to the AD page after you paid for no ADS! Then after time you never get back in your life, you are transferred back to the game…over, and over, and over again. It’s boring and stressful. So I don’t recommend down loading this game until it’s restored to its original play. Without constant reward ads interrupting your play.
I have made it a game to try to remove as many regular tiles without touching the gold, and only remove the gold when absolutely necessary. I have completed puzzles with 5 gold tiles left and the game poofs them away!
MyrtleMae invite rvD7U4 - Fun game ruined by intrusive ads
Okay, so I’m not stupid and I do get it that ads pay for the games we enjoy for free, but the operative word here is “enjoy”. After you get through the first few levels (essentially a tutorial - how else do you explain a set of puzzles that require no real skill to solve?), you finally get to a puzzle that presents somewhat of a challenge. Only to have your gameplay constantly interrupted by ads that start playing randomly during the level. I’m used to games that have ads that play in between levels, but at least you can complete the level before you have to stop watch an ad in order to go any further. Not that I’m a fan of those either, but like I said I’m used to them. But when I can’t get through a level without several ad interruptions I have to question the value of the so-called “free” game. Seriously, I would rather purchase a game and know that I will actually get to play it.
Esiotrot19 - So Many Interruptions 😡
I would love to have given this game a 5-star review. It’s very addictive. However, it has two big flaws.
1) Largest, by FAR, is the number of interruptions to the game play. I paid to have the ad-free version and I literally cannot play for more than 30 seconds without the game “giving” me “special blocks.” Special blocks are just the game developers taking my money and forcing an “opportunity” to watch an ad on me. For extra coins. I don’t want the stupid coins. I don’t need skins or extra fireworks or things that poof when my finger hits the screen. I also don’t care what my “world rank” is. Stop interrupting the game to show me. It’s probably all fake anyway. I want a smooth gameplay experience that is truly the ad-free experience I paid for.
2) There are too few puzzle shapes to work through. As I said above, it’s an addicting game, and as such you find yourself redoing the same puzzle shape over and over.
SapphireSays - If you hate ads… this is even worse than u think
When I’m sad I like to binge puzzle games. When I saw an ad for thing game, I knew the drill. While the actual puzzles themselves surprised me with their complexity and variety (I was expecting MUCH less- it’s not difficult just enough to make you pause for a moment at most tbh) the thing that didn’t surprise me were the ads and cosmetics. No matter how well you are doing or if you’ve just gone out of your way to watch ads for a bonus, you will see a new ad about every 30-45 seconds. On the smaller puzzles it was tolerable bc it was usually max 3 ads, but on the more complex puzzles with say 300 blocks… every thirty taps I would get another ad. On a five minute puzzle I got 11 ads. While I honestly don’t mind the occasional ad (I work in an ad adjacent field so it’s almost research), this is some of the most aggressive ad placement I’ve ever seen. Find something similar as other reviews said the 5$ ad free charge often doesn’t even work!!
T-Nelse - Annoying interruptions detract from otherwise great game.
As the title says, and as other reviews have said, the interruptions from the special blocks and level-ups mar an otherwise great game. The appeal of this game is the meditative aspect of clearing the blocks—it’s great to play while listening to music. The interruptions distract from the zen-like nature of the game.
As other users mention, the coins are pretty much useless, as the original skin is the best for gameplay. It clearly indicates which direction the blocks will go from all sides, unlike all the other skins you can purchase. Kind of a weird oversight—all the “special skins” you can purchase make the game harder by taking away useful information.
If the developers would come out with a version without interruptions and the gold mechanic, I would easily pay double what I payed to remove ads.

GreatSouthLand - Needs improvement
1. Too many ads. Ads at the end of a level are ok, but ads within a level are not. Also, show the same ad more than twice in a row and you can guarantee the advertiser has wasted their money as I won’t look at the product
2. The ads tend to slow my iPad down (8th generation running 15.4.1) to the point where I need to shut the game down and restart, or in extreme cases reboot the device
Lysuyee - Great game, until it glitched
Initially worked well, loved the game, bought the ad free version. Fun to play and worked smoothly. Only liked one of the skins for the blocks though. The rest of the skins seemed to just be confusing and made the game harder to play as I have to concentrate to figure out which way the direction is pointing. Have to say I hate the gold blocks though because they take too long load the button to collect your coins without watching an ad. Today the gold blocks decide to glitch on me and I am now stuck on the screen asking me to either watch an ad or collect 20 coins. I have to close the app and restart it before I can resume playing. Please fix this bug! Edit: they fixed the bug, working now Yet another bug with the gold block where it’s stuck on the last move. I click on the gold box, it disappears after the roulette to give me coins. Then I’m left with an empty level with no way to progress further. I used the bomb to try and see if it helps but nope. I restarted my app multiple times, waited a few days still stuck at that level. Deleted the app now. Too buggy
TheOneCat - Update = Downgrade
It seems the developers weren't getting enough ads in, so they've replaced the Endless Mode powerup with an ad player. Now instead of building up a layer-clearing powerup by making good moves, the player only has the option of watching an ad to remove the layer... and there are still "challenges" in the game to activate that powerup a certain number of times that now DON'T WORK, because playing the ad doesn't even advance the challenge counter!
Plus even after buying every coin-costing item in the game, it still wants to spam you with ads to earn more coins. I didn't expect buying Ad-Free Mode to actually put *more* ads in!
TeeKay.fun - Too many ads and the app freezes or shutsdown
The ads are ridiculous. Up to four taps over 15-20 seconds to escape from an ad.
Some ads load, play but are on a black screen. If ou keep tapping the upper right corner sometimes it will then go to a white screen with the developers logo on it and a banner ad at the bottom. Then you have to keep tapping the screen to get past it. Sometimes it goes to the apple store others it tries to load a browser page.
The gift boxes, when you click to collect EVERT TIME it says there is no internet connection and no ads to load. Even though the internet connection is fine. The only way past is to not “accept” the gift.
Then it will either freeze for no reason or it just boots you out and shuts down.
I’ve only played for ten minutes, minus ad time, I’m on an iPad with 100mbps internet. No other games is as glitchy as this. It’s time the developers overhaul this or take it down!
I won’t be back!!
TashyZoo - Please fix the gold blocks
I love this game and want to play it a lot! The only thing is that whenever i click the gold blocks they glitch and don’t let me go back to the game. I’m just infinity stuck with no way to click off or exit and i have to close the app and log back in to escape and go back to playing. That would be fine if it was 2 or 3 blocks per level but with the bigger levels I’m having to do this 20-30 times!! Please fix this bug i love this game and want to play more!!!!!
Parapata - Not a fan of the new special block
I love this game but with the new update came the gold block that appears out of nowhere to stop you from progressing and you have to eliminate the block to move the puzzle along. I get that it adds to the challenge but really the challenge is in the puzzle itself- I just feel it’s a bit unnecessary- would love for this new feature to be removed!
SquishyPanda - Nice, but too easy and way too much time in ads
I spent more time watching ads than I did playing. The game is way too easy - I got to level 125 without batting an eyelid before deciding this wasn’t worth it any more. The “Endless” game is way too easy, as all you’re doing is endlessly removing an outer layer of cubes from a smaller cube, and the rate at which ads come up in Endless is crazy. The Challenge games were a little more complex, but not much.
I appreciate that ads pay for the game, but this game definitely overstepped the mark.
Rel DC - Why is there a special effect?
When you tap a block it is frustrating to have to wait for the special effect to disappear before being able to see the next block to tap. This is not needed and spoils the fun when you want to tap blocks quickly.
El qwerty - Colour contradt problem
I’ve recently discovered this game and am generally enjoying it but really struggle with yellow and white blocks. There is not enough contrast for my ageing eyes. I can’t work out how to change the colour. Is it possible?
Also I am getting sick of thd ads and thought perhaps I will buy the game but $7.99 seems fairly pricey as there are only 60 levels and I am up to level 53 after 3 weeks. Does paying for the game offer more levels perhaps?
Tack9204 - Why did I pay?
The levels don’t seem to get too much harder as you go through the levels. The game is good for mind numbing during down time without having to think too much, but after paying for the game why am I still getting ads? You don’t get told there will still be ads until after you have paid. Not happy with the tactic guys especially with the cost for a basic challenge game.
Kylziemoo - The gold blocks!!!!!’
I love this game but the gold blocks are making me hate it. When you hit a gold block the game freezes and you have to close the app and reset it to then go back in and continue playing that level. There are so many gold blocks in each level that it’s so annoying you can’t just continue playing! Please fix or remove the gold blocks as it will turn a lot of people off this game.
Tiiinnnaaaa - Gold blocks disrupt gameplay - glitchy!
There is a bug where I’m stuck on the last 2 gold blocks and can’t progress any further. Tried a bomb didn’t work. Reset my phone, didn’t work. Closed the app, didn’t work. The gold blocks are incredibly annoying and disrupt smooth game play. Paid for no ads and still have to watch ads to get bonuses or new skins. Some of the skins too are impossible to play as you can’t focus or distinguish what you’re looking at :/
Jackilyn - Hate the Gold Blocks and Rank on Normal Play
The gold blocks and rank meter in normal play is doing my head in as it breaks the flow of play. I ended up buying the game so I could avoid the in game ads but now this has the same effect.
Great game and I’m up around level 2200 but these latest updates are making me not want to play anymore. Would have given 5 stars before the gold blocks and rank were added to normal play
BreonyD - Insane amount of ads
Seriously, every few moves you are bombarded with ads. The game is awesome, but completely ruined by the long, repetitive ads that destroy your battery life and freeze your device. My phone was so overwhelmed by them that it was overheating and had to be shut down. If there was a paid version to get rid of the ads I would totally buy it because I love the game.
Hkshh - Poor app execution
This game is fun to play but the app is so frustrating!
Way too many ads, shows an add on what feels like every few moves when really they should be at the end of each level.
So many glitches, can’t do a small zoom in to see better, it’s either all the way in and can’t tell where you are or all the way out and so much harder to select the cube you are aiming for. Doesn’t zoom where you want it to, cant move across the puzzle while zoomed in, only around which makes it very confusing. Having to reset the app every few ads due to freezing. Not a smooth rotation around the puzzle.
Went from ‘easy’ (10 blocks) mode to a lot more full on ‘medium’ (150 blocks) very quickly.
Lil_sam87 - Impossible to play. Too many ads
So I understand free apps play ads. But there is no “remove ads” button anywhere available in this app. I just want to play endless mode without being interrupted by ads all the time. Will now be deleting this game
Cazzamataz - Very addictive
I enjoy the game - but too many adds and at the moment there is a bug - every time I click on gold cube the game gets stuck and I have to restart. So it’s more frustrating than anything. But it could be good.
XCrysx - Ads
Too many ads. But while I can handle the ads every 35 moves (I’ve counted), & this sometimes makes the app force close, some of these ads are extremely inappropriate for children. I’m getting ads for games/apps rated MA. There should be a filter to prevent this.
However, the game is addictive & fun. Fix the ad issue & I would give 5 stars instead of only 3 stars
Segat122222 - Gets stuck at Level 63
For some reason at level 63 you finish the level but then doesn’t move to level 64. Plus those annoying gold blocks that stop play, and an alert telling you which level you’re on … stop that! Give us an option to turn off level alerts and get rid of the gold blocks.
Getstuffedwiththereviews - What are the special events?
To unlock certain skins and effects etc. it says you need to complete special events but there is no information available to say what these special events are - how to get to/find them etc.
So I ask what are these special events and how do we get to complete them to unlock these extra features?
Ailish's iPod - I too many ads
If there was an ad free option ai would pay ur. I enjoy this game however, no option appears to exist. The ads are frequent and some of them are lengthy and repetitive. I will NEVER down load that Royal whatever it is. It was the longest ad and most frequent and therefore most hated!!!! Not the result Im guessing they were after.
Jasooty - Bad controls and ads interrupt game
The controls for zoom are really close or really far so you have to keep zooming in and out to the squares you want to tap.
And as others have stated, ads are okay but not mid game.
Also annoying that when you have 30 moves left but there are 32 cubes to tap away and it doesn’t tell you “you don’t have enough moves left, restart now?”
TonyJackiMeganBen - Glitchy
In the game when I was on level 11 it showed a big 3d circle and said I had 368 moves- level 11 is way less than that! And now on level 41 it says I have 242 moves on a random shape. This game is also very glitchy in general. There are way too many adds so I have to turn off my internet so I don’t get the adds!
Gr*gl* - Way too many ads
Game is fun but can’t play properly- every 10 seconds there are ads. Also cannot zoom in and out to a comfortable level- either zoomed right in where can’t see enough cubes or zoomed right out where can’t choose the right cube as they are too small- need to be able to gradually zoom.
Need to remove some ads. Could be a great game otherwise.
Crochet fan - Loved it until…
Tap away was my go-to app to chill- out and really enjoyed this game even with the extremely annoying ads that interrupted the game multiple times. The latest update however is beyond ridiculous. I persisted through 1 1/2 games (whilst having no wifi)and got so fed up with the constant interruptions and gold boxes I quit the game. Understand the need for ads but this update is ridiculous. Will delete.
Fourassedmonkey - Too many ads
Seems like a fair puzzler but a 30 second ad after each level - which takes 30 to 60 seconds to complete- is just ridiculous. There is a “no ads” button which does not work. I don’t mind spending a couple of bucks for an ad free game - I would rather not have to sit through ads.
I have deleted the game.
Erubadhriel_88 - Too many interruptions
Recently updated and have become frustrated with the new “special” blocks. I don’t want more coins, I don’t need more coins do these only serve to interrupt gameplay and annoy. Between them and the leveling up graphics, it’s become less enjoyable. Just let me tap the boxes in peace.
Eagle1978au - Too many ads
I understand that developers need to make money to support the free game but there is literally an ad every 1-2 minutes.
When playing one of the harder levels it makes you want to just give up on the game completely.
Kit would be preferable to have an ad after each level or when collecting bonuses.
Chez and Taz - Love this game
Very relaxing. If you do the right thing by the developers and pay for the game, there are no ads. This game doesn’t continue to ask you for more money. Yay
Army1901 - Golden blocks
Since the last update on my iPad with the addition of the golden blocks, each time one is touched the game freezes and the only way to get it going again is to completely switch off the iPad. Why is this so and when will there be a fix to it
Hidecki - Stupid special blocks!
I can handle ignoring the odd ‘offer’ to view an add… but repeated requests for the stupid golden blocks (that show up almost every minute) is just tiring.
The add’s are just out of control now, and yes I actually paid to have them removed! So I’ll just leave it alone and walk away, as the constant notification and crashing of the game for just ignoring the adds are just too much.
IsThis1TakenToo - Ridiculous
This game is getting beyond a joke. I was happy with the game until endless stopped working. I deleted & reinstalled it but endless still wont work. Ok I’ll play a bit longer I thought. Just now the ‘bomb’ has stopped working. I have enough coins to pay for them. Save you sanity & do not download/play this game. I’ve emailed the developers & I’ve heard nothing. This game is ridiculous at this point.
Maxamusau66 - Is there a glitch?
This would be an awesome game if it didn’t show sooooooo many videos. It has a restore purchases option but I can’t find anywhere to make a purchase.
If I could make a purchase to not watch videos then I would give this game 5 stars.
SWoo125 - Horrific amount of ads AND adult content in ads
The number of ads was rediculous enough! Then come level 30 something flipped and the ads became way more adult. One ad on repeat even within the same level is for ‘my fantasy’ or something similar and is completely inappropriate for kids. I often have littles around at home so I’ll be uninstalling this game as a result.
Wombat6474 - Too many ads
A reasonably fun game but too many ads. It interrupts the game play with an ad every minute or so. 10 moves and the an ad very frustrating. I accept ads before and after each puzzle but there are so many long ads it’s not worth playing
Overtakennicknames..... - Ok but way too many ads
This game is good as a way to just zone out and not really think about what’s going on around you, but, there are ads on my game every 8 clicks.
I appreciate free games need ads to fund them, but it would be much better if there were 1-2 ads between every level like most games, as opposed to 1 ad every 8 clicks 😒
Cap56 - Hated Gold Blocks
This was my favourite game. I got the add free version and was addicted until the gold blocks turned up. Have I finished the game? I can’t progress any further and even when I play previous levels the blocks are all over the place. Very disappointed!!
Rrrosssiii - Too many ads
I like the game and would rather pay a couple of dollars to remove all ads. I won’t keep playing however as there are way too many ads and through the game. Really sick of games where you can’t get rid of ads.
Spikeyrj - Needs fixing
I enjoyed playing this game very much until it was updated and now every time i go into the game it tells me i don’t have any moves left. That was 2 updates ago. The last update didn’t fix the issue so Please fix.
Tigergirl177 - I like but….
At the end of each level there are three options, I guess you would say. Anyway, I’ve unlocked all the skins and yet I keep getting “unlock a skin” for 75 coins. I CANT. To make it go away I have to watch an ad… there are enough f…. ads in this game already! Please fix!!
Seaview12 - Why change the game
This was the most perfect relaxing game until you changed it. The constant interruptions to tell me I’ve gone up a level is incredibly annoying and makes me angry every time. Please, please change it back to the way it was. And the gold block are also annoying. Please let me know why you changed the most perfect game!!!!
Milldog17 - 50/50
It’s a really fun game I’m not gonna lie but there are just way to many adds to make it enjoyable and to all the people that will say just use aeroplane mode I tried that and it doesn’t work. I would really love the game if there were maybe less adds or even a way to get rid of the adds by buying it
Cosmic_carrot - Ad store
Love the concept, love the look, enjoy the game if I actually get to see it!
Each ad is twice or three times as long as each game. Lost interest due to frustration.
I can’t even find a ‘pay to remove ads’ button. Such a shame. It could be a great game.
Trishwish - Too many ads
Ads after each level is ok, but during a level and constant is just annoying. It’s a shame as the game is fun but I won’t use it with so many ads coming up all the time
Jess23232323 - You have ruined this game for me
I’ve paid for the ad free version of this game and these special blocks are ruining my game flow. I don’t want to watch a video to get more coins I don’t want more coins at all I want to mindlessly tap at the pretty pattern. Please get rid of them also the reset button is non functioning just takes me back to the same amount left over.
Calojackatie - Please fix fault on this game
From level 585 onwards there are no arrows on the cubes visible I’m up to 588 but have a hide the levels by hitting cubes and seeing which way they move. I thought you may have made it this way for some reason but do not think so. I enjoy this game it is relaxing for me. Can you please look into it for me as I’m sure I am not the only person experiencing this fault.
LozaMurf - Too many ads during levels
I would rate higher if there wasn’t so many interruptions during the levels. I really dislike the “special blocks” as they interrupt the game
Gem Reviews - The ads will drive you nuts!
This may be a great game, but unfortunately you spend more time watching ads than playing the game. I gave up playing this because I just couldn’t stand the ads. It’s such a shame because I think it could otherwise be a fun and relaxing game.
Bearzy66 - Too ‘glitchy’
Game freezes repeatedly during play and particularly after ads (often refuses to return to game play and you’re forced to shut down and re-open) … and there are a LOT of ads relative to game time. Utilising the zoom function also tends to make it freeze.
JanetJacks11 - Too many ads
Too many ads and the ads are extremely repetitive. Also whenever there is an update, the game gets glitchy

Xävïër - Tap Away 26-Jun-2021
The game is fun and challenging but the thing that frustrates me and makes me not want to play is the bombardment of advertisements after every level regular or bonus levels. I spend more time watching advertisements then do the actual game which is boring. You could add backgrounds to your unblockable content along with the skins for the blocks.
Logic Nerd - Get rid of SPECIAL BLOCKS
I loved playing this game, but the new “special blocks” and constant rank updates are incredibly annoying! I paid for the full version so I wouldn’t be incessantly interrupted, and then here comes this unwanted feature, throwing coins in my face every 10 seconds 🤦🏻♀️
JHJS123 - Fun but too many ads
I can get behind advertising between levels, but this game bombards you with ads in the MIDDLE of a level. Takes your focus away and is extremely frustrating. Honestly not worth the time…. Unless you love watching ads, then it’s an a amazing experience.
Dwarvensilver - Calming
A little easy even 45 levels in but great for winding down
Slapcabbage Finchly - Tap Away adverts
The game is interesting but annoying adverts after just a few seconds play time is way too much.
Mayhem 69 - Way too many ads
Hard to stay engaged when every 20 moves you have to stop and watch an ad, very frustrating
👍🙈👽👅👺 - Too many glitches
Fix the glitch with “special blocks” or get rid of them!
Neesharoo - The ads insult me. never going to download
There are a lot of annoying ads for games out there, but this one insults their customers. The ad shows gameplay while a chorus of voices tell me, the viewer and potential customer, how dumb, slow and incompetent I am. Why would I want to subject myself to that?
I don’t understand the marketing strategy!
PCK49 - Like it
But, what are the gold coins used for. I accumulate but they do not appear to have any use. Already up to over 200,000 with no obvious reason to seek more.
SpikeXD1 - No more ads
This game is actually challenging and fun to play. The worst is the non stop ads that come up constantly. I’ve even paid for NO ADS and I’m still getting all the adds. Waste of my money if I can’t play without ads. If the ads persist, I definitely want my money back. Disappointing management of this game.
Meagan_prince - Fun but too much ads
Very fun game, but the constant ads get very annoying.
Bradjvelsink - Ad overkill - no fun
The game is a lot of fun but the constant bombardment of ads kills any fun you have. I deleted the game because it feels like half your time is spent watching ads.
Josh11221221 - Too many adds
Too many adds
Whyyyyy39636785448 - HATE this updated version
I was enjoying this game, starting my day with it as I had coffee, and relaxing with it for awhile at the end of my day… EVERY DAY. I was more than willing to endure the inevitable ad between each level. THEN I made the mistake of updating this app (which simply promised things would be “smoother in the higher levels”… whatever that means), in the hope they also may have added new block configurations. INSTEAD, they are now inserting interruptive ‘bonus/coin blocks’ and ‘ranking blocks’ which you must open to work around… and then, as you probably can guess, you then must endure another ad! And there are A LOT of these annoying blocks within each level… they multiply like vermin as you’re playing 😡. So now what once was a contemplative/meditative puzzle, has become an infuriating barrage of constant interruptions. I’ll check back in awhile to see if they walk back these money-grabbing idiotic changes (after they see what I’m sure will be an overall drop in usage). *it’s been a few months now, and they still have not reversed those recent greedy changes, so I have to advise you all not to bother with this app.
Birder 1024 - Frustrating
I agree with Xavier. Loved the game hated the constant ads. Clear 10 or so blocks and an ad pops up. Had to close the ad by closing the app. Then reopen the app and repeat. Each game has 300+ blocks so 30 times per game. Sorry but that’s just too much. Worse it is a battery killer. Removed the app!
Gameplayerwhenihavetime - Great game play but too many ads!
1/2 the time playing is spent watching ads m. Every level up there’s an ad so you’ll be tapping along, getting a good rhythm and then there’s an ad. I find myself getting frustrated and switching to a different game for entertainment because I want to get in to this game but am interrupted every minute
Bethers2729 - Too easy!
I got this game, because of the ad, but it is starting off way to simple. I hope it becomes like the ad quickly. It’s my kind of game though.
Nunyabizbaby - Fun puzzle but too many ads
Free version is atrocious. Ads every 15 seconds. So, I paid for the app and still have to watch an ad to do basic things like retry a puzzle. I regret paying for it.
BlackCats34 - Tap away
The game would be fun if it I didn’t have to uninstall the game and reinstall and there is way too many ads every 5 seconds
Aerocorny - Ads are ridiculous
The amount of ads on this game is ridiculous. You play for 5 seconds then have an ad on a loop for a minute and can’t get it to stop. Aweful.
Thoughts from the shore - Yet Another Trojan Horse of Ads
This might have been an interesting game if not for the ridiculous amount of ads. I never really got a chance to enjoy the game and deleted it soon after downloading it.
Sannie49 - Paid too much to still get ads
At almost $7.00 for an app, I would have expected that ALL ad’s be removed, not just those between levels. Very disappointing.
Yhtfrgbi - Too many commercials
The game is good but there is an overwhelming amount of commercials. It sucks!!!
Makingroom - Instructions
There are no instructions on how to play this game. So I deleted it.
Desert-willow - Don’t pay you still get ads
Ok game. More ads than play - I paid and you still get ads because of the stupid coins. Top tip when you have option of bonus coins don’t do it, wait a few seconds and take the basic pay out. Will save you ad time. Sorely disappointed
TheIceman1975 - Fun but frustrating!!
It’s sad because the game is fun but the advertisements are insane… every level you need to watch an ad, and when you have a special level with a lot of block it’s even more annoying!!
Emmamde - Too many ads
Fun game but an add pops up literally every 30 seconds. You spend more time watching ads then actually playing the game.
Jocelyne Y. - Paid to eliminate ads - what a scam!
Hey Popcore People,
This is not fair and obviously, many players are complaining about this Special Block that forces us to watch your promos.
Also, your most difficult level is not challenging enough!
Goodbye, on to another game.
Berrylicious73 - Could have been enjoyable…
The frequency of ads makes the game impossible to enjoy. Also I feel like it’s an insult to developers. You’re making us look bad.
Thehood189766 - Littered with ads. Glitchy gameplay
Don’t waste your time.
K8 good day sunshine - So many glitches
Adding: I deleted and re-added game so now I can get higher levels but the game still think it’s December so n more daily challenges.
Old: clicked on app support and brings me to a website promoting your company. I just paid to remove ads and now I’m stuck in some game glitch at level 68 eternally removing 2 blocks and then nothing happens.
Jonathan Brunelle - Way too many ads
This game is fun. But…. I deleted the game after 30 minutes because of the annoying ads!!
Annoyedatbuzzupdate - False advertising
The ad for this game shows a stack of blocks that you take out according to its arrow. Game play is different, graphics are different. I even kept getting ads for the same game while trying to play this.
Lefties Beware - Left-handeds Disadvantaged
I like the spatial-awareness challenges. I like the 3D nature of the puzzle. I am left handed and what really frustrates me is that the replay/restart button is in play for my left ring finger. I have had multiple occasions when suddenly a nearly complete puzzle restarts because my finger accidentally brushed the top left of the screen. A simple “are you sure” feature would save me grief!
Dlafave181 - Good game but…
This is a fun game. The problem is the advertisements come at you at every level and during game play. The freeze ups during game play from the adds cause you to have to reboot the game and lose any progress. I get adds help pay for the developers but they are too much and the glitches make me want to delete the game
724983DLT - Murder granny and the farmers
Those two ads are shown continuously and for longer than on any other game. As much as I was enjoying playing this the ads have done me in and I will be deleting this game as soon as I post my review
Kfarn - Disappointed
The games is good but there are long ads every ten seconds or ten moves. Takes away from the play of the game. If you are trying it out, don’t bother. Very disappointing.
Jhaus87 - Excessive ads
I understand periodic ads for upgrades and special items/added time but watching an add every 3-5 levels ruined this for me.
Ladymaryeva - Stuck on the ads
It’s bad enough the game has so many ads but I find I can’t close them and get out of the ad. Too bad fun game.
Njckc - Disappointed
Should be relaxing but wayyy too many ads, hard to find enjoyment when every few minute an ad pops up. Wasted time, uninstalled 👎
This is not OK - Painful ADS
Fun puzzle. Nice 3D graphic. I enjoy it when I get to play. Way too many ads. And most frustrating is the Tim Hortons AD offering a chance to win a gift card. You MUST accept it and register with them to get past it. Otherwise it just locks permanently and you can’t get past it NO MATTER HOW LONG YOU WAIT- without turning your phone off.
It’s enough to make me delete the game.
A frustrating waste of time.
Cail0002 - Why pay
Why do you pay and still get ads. That is an absolute turn off. I want my money back 😡
Laurfoll - Glitchy AF
This game is fun, but glitchy AF! It freezes all the time?
Ctuckwel - Great but ….
I like to play games quickly, try to solve puzzles as fast as possible… with this game, I get to okay quickly, only to it come to a screaming halt to show me an ad 5-30 seconds long - the long ones are all for games that seem interminably slow that I wouldn’t okay on a bet. Please give us an ad-free option…
Canadadish - Ok game
Doesn’t work in airplane mode. Is completely blank.
Might need to be collecting your info all the time
Turk-ush - Too many advertisements
This game would be awesome if it didn’t have an ad every 15 seconds
You literally will play for seconds before another 30s ad. This game is not worth your time
CB-CA - Ads interrupt games even in No Ads version
I would rate this puzzle game higher except for the constant interruption by ads (long unwanted ads that won’t let you out for several minutes).
In the No Ads version, there are still Special Blocks in the puzzle which trigger ads as your “reward”. You have no choice but to click those blocks to clear the puzzle.
And during the game you can’t target the Bombs to clear away blocks, so what good are they for 100 coins?
This puzzle game should be reworked so the user can choose to watch an ad to add coins when the user decides they need them, not interrupt the game multiple times.
I won’t be playing this puzzle game as much as I might have .
Martin_Le_Blanc - Fun but too many ads
Fun games, but way too many ads, I removed the app after few levels. I looked for the « remove ads » option, it’s 7$, more than I accept to pay for a mobile game. Make it 3$, I would have used it.
Scruffyvarmint - Waaaaay too many ads - can’t even play the game
Ads are so overkill - ridiculous
Huuuuuuikjhhyy - Like the game BUT..
Ads are beyond dumb, extra long and worse than any TV commercial Ive ever seen. Ads interfere with game and sometimes after two moves..another ad. Some ads freeze and then I just give up and go play something else..
