DodgeGirl97 - Suggestions
Absolutely love this game. The only things I would suggest is making it to where instead of using the diamonds to chose the best option in the story we read, why not let us use our diamonds towards tickets? We are only granted 4 tickets in an allotted amount of time. Why not let us buy tickets with the diamonds and let us make our own decisions in the game without being charged for them? And instead of getting just 1 diamond at the end of every episode, why not make it 2 diamonds? Each ticket should cost one diamond that way we can continue reading. You can still offer your deals to buy diamonds and tickets, but for people that use this app to read the stories they love and escape reality to go into fiction, it would be nicer and more combiner for us.
As far as designing, please add more backgrounds and maybe add music that people listen too daily to kinda make the story revolve around their preference! There are a lot of stories that involve parties and dancing and the music you hear sounds like it came from the early 2000’s version of strawberry shortcake. We get to customize what our characters look like and their names. Why can’t we pick the music we like too? You can make safety features that make you verify how old you are so you know what music content is suitable for younger and older ages.
Again these are just suggestions and the app is amazing. But I feel as if the suggestions would better accommodate your users.
mynameisnotyourbu - Great app.. minor issue... but still amazing
First off. I love episode I have had this app since the sixth grade so that’s been what.. 5 years now. I’ve been obsessed with this app since their classic characters and I’ve never got enough. The people on here are amazing and truly have talent. I feel like episode is the perfect base for people to start and learn how to write. However recently I’ve been having this minor problem where it won’t let me get into the app. It just says error and exits me out. I’ve tried shutting of my phone and turning it back in and deleting/ re downloading the app and it still tells me this. I just wanted to put this out there for episode to see and if anyone else has this problem. But regardless this is an amazing app and I would recommend it to anyone. And if you are apart of LGBTQ+ they do have stories like that as well! And they also have stories that take place in Highschool/ college. And stories with mystical creatures and so much more. They have all sorts of genres to choose from so I’m sure whatever you like to read will be on there. It is more of a romance based app though but not all stories have that happy ending. If you’re deciding to get this app I would 100% recommend it and even if you feel like you’re not into that type of stuff. Just down load it and see how you feel. I’m sure it will change your mind on reading if you’re not a reader.
XxleonardoxX - Things that you guys need to change!
Where can I start off, episode started being a fun game where everyone can enjoy and the people that don’t spend money and the people that do spend enjoyed The experience throughout the years it has became a game where you have to spend to your life money to make small decision like changing your clothes or doing stuff that intrigue’s for example let’s take the old scenario where a mean girl insults you in front of the whole school thereWould likely be do a good come back that would be insulting them even better then what The mean girls did Of course the majority would want to pick the come back but you would find it very rareFor you to do it come back without spending your money into diamond Thai mean yes you can grind with other stories but isn’t this game all about making your own path and not having not do things choices that you want to doNo the biggest issue is the multiple players have been getting mad because mobile on iOS cannot make stories this is simply unfair because with stories you can gain diamonds and tickets I mean yes I recently set the hood most of the questions are made of diamonds But please notice that I never said for there not to be diamond questions since I know this is with the company gain there money from so I believe that if you can make iOS mobile players make stories again we can all have a fair experience because to the majority of us we see that the computer readers have a really big advantage.
ValUnHAPPYREADER!! - Episode
I really like Episode I’ve played it off and on for a couple of years now. I just recently downloaded it a couple weeks ago since a year ago. The first thing I noticed was the new stories that seem really good. I also know that there has been a lot of changes and I’m not so happy about it. First off you have too many choices that I have to spend diamonds on. I don’t remember having to spend money to make a good choice. I get it y’all have to make your money but not with ALL the choices. I shouldn’t have to use diamonds to make a decision on a change of clothes. I can’t change into nothing different with out having to use diamonds and that’s not fare at all for the reader. Make the game a little more useful for us than you and stop being so money hungry he’ll we all got to eat and I’m not about to keep spending my money on no games that I might not keep that long. So I feel like y’all could at least make it a little more interesting and fun because this is not it. You all are wrong for this and the tickets take too long to refresh. I use to be able to read for hours because my tickets would renew while I read now it don’t start until the chapter of the last ticket ends. THIS GAME HAS OFFICIALLY IRRITATED ME change it back the way it was. Like I said before my rant. I love the new stories I’m glad I don’t have to keep seeing the Pretty Littler Liars, and Mean Girls anymore. Just make it a little more fun to read instead of braking the bank for diamonds and tickets.
unicorn7475 - love it but it needs help
I love episode and I like the idea of being able to read and have fun at the same time. My two problems are the two problems i’ve seen the most according to the other ratings as well. The diamonds and tickets. The ticket is the most aggravating thing, and I understand that’s how they make their money but only 2 tickets every 3 hours? That is very unfair compared to the 10 minutes I have reading the actual episode. And only if I read one episode and use one ticket in one sitting, the clock doesn’t start till all the tickets are gone! So the next time i’m excited to read I only have one ticket then have to wait more than 3 hours for 2 tickets. And I don’t have money I can spend on a game to but more of the app that should already be there then I get so aggravated that I just delete after all and how is that good for your ratings? Also the diamonds. The diamonds change the whole story and of course that’s the path i want to go down but i cant because i don’t have enough diamonds then it just ruins the whole story (that’s why i like the story’s that don’t have diamonds). And the last thing is the outfits! cmon guys if i’m going to a ball room dance and only have my pajamas to wear? and the other option it 29 diamonds!! that would equal 29 story’s worth of diamonds for just one little part of the story and the next thing you know you didn’t inpress the queen cause you couldn’t wear the dress. Anyways if anyone reads this i appreciate the rant😌
jaydenjason - Amazing but there’s some suggestions.
AMAZING GAME. It has so many good stories, it’s like reading a book or watching a movie but it’s just so much better because we get to search through all these peoples creativity not only giving readers a good experience, but make authors express themselves in a good way to make them feel proud! But there a some suggestions I would like to make...So, number ONE. The Diamonds. Yes, the diamonds are very hard to get for a reason and I get they put that in the story for reasons too. It’s like an exclusive to make a story more...more...juicy. BUT. JUST BUT...Why only one diamond a chapter. I feel like I have been ripped off every time I finish a chapter and get only ONE diamond. I have to like watch at least 15 chapters just make one choice in a story! And I need to watch so many ads and get so many passes for that! I feel like there should be at least 2 diamonds given. Or maybe a limit to these prices of these choices to all of the diamond choices. If not, I pity you. And problem number two. The Creating Process. So, I’m the game, you can make some stories. But, why would you limit the process choices to add in your story while in mobile? That’s just way to much work to actually make a GOOD JUICY story on mobile. And the creating on computer is so complicated! You have to do all these codings and stuff. It’s just so confusing! Please, fix this. That’s all I got. But I will keep playing your game because it’s over all a cool app.
Mystee Dawn - Love!
I downloaded this for an offer in another app. I had seen advertisements before on social media, but didn’t seem like anything I’d get into. I expected to only get through the few chapters I had to, in order to receive my gems in the initial game. But after those fewchapters, I ended up reading more and more, finding myself constantly checking for passes. Sometimes, it can get frustrating to not have passes when you’re reallyinto reading the story, but you can watch ads to reduce time, or you can get so many after reading a certain amount. They also give so many passes after a couple of hours. I normally rate an app, based on how much they keep my interest, as well as their support/customer service. It’s definitely kept my interest, as I’m constantly coming back to the app each time I get the baby settled or he’s distracted. I’ve only dealt with customer service twice with once hoping for something I’d googled about subscriptions to passes (which are no longer available/offered), and the other with an issue with one of the ads. Both times were responded to within 24 hours (very good timing, as most take days, or never respond), and the issue I had with an ad freezing, they were aware of and looking for a fix, but compensated me with the loss of my items (very quickly). I definitely have to rate the app a 5, and the customer service. They’re great!
only two problems - Kinda getting annoying
This is a pretty cool app, I love the story’s and the design but there are really on two problems I have. Number one is the diamonds, it isn’t really fair for the people who can’t buy them to have to wait to get them. We have to choose options that effect our story but because we don’t have the amount we need we get stuck with the bad ones that almost ruin the entire story for us! The fact that there is only two ways of getting them and one of them is just playing is annoying. We either have to push through not having them and choose bad options or we have to waste tickets on a story just so we can get diamonds! Please fix this. My other problem is the story’s we can make ourselves. It’s a great idea and I absolutely love it, especially sense you can’t have diamond options but the design of the characters are different and it’s to hard to make. The episode story’s have an amazing design and I really applaud the people who make them but why don’t the users get the same design? It’s unfair and really a waste. I’m sure a lot more people would use episode if they had the same chances for characters. My other problem with the story’s is it’s way to hard to make. I’ve tried several times to make it and I’ve failed every time because of the difficulty. You should make more animations, backgrounds and clothes. Also give a better tutorial so we understand how to do it more. Other than that this app is perfect, change those things and it can be five stars.
AVE ANDLEN PLAYS! - Love it!!!

PlsDontBotherMe - Not just me
Episode is great, don’t get me wrong. I honestly love it so much and I play episode almost every day. But the passes and gem situation is very frustrating. You have so many downloads, and you guys probably want to keep it that way. So if I were you, I would try putting yourself in a different position and ask, “Would I be frustrated if I waited 4 hours to get 2 passes?” I definitely would be. 2 measly passes after waiting for 4 hours! That’s insane. Now I need to point out one thing though, they do give 4 passes every 4 hours of you continuously play episode. that seems a bit more reasonable. As I said I love episode, but maybe change it to 4 passes in 4 hours all the time, not just if u play episode a lot. Some people can be very inpatient and might just delete the app as soon as they see how long you need to wait. Also, maybe consider a thing where you can watch ads in order to get a pass?! please consider. One last thing. Some stories actually have tons of choices to choose! There’s the rlly bad choice you have to choose, or the really good choice. But you don’t really get to choose the one you want unless you have TONS of gems. And I mean TONS. Especially the pretty little liars. I honestly love it sm. But srsly? Almost 40 gems just to choose a good choice?! It makes me furious. Maybe have a limit for authors for about 10 gems per choice.
wolfy7252 - Good app! Just a few minor issues...
Okay, before I get into this I would like to say that I've been reading on this app for over 4 years. I have seen a lot of changes, good and bad, happen. I love this app and it's a great opportunity to put yourself out there by writing unique stories. There are a couple issues that I've noticed while playing. My first concern is the length of the episodes. I've found some awesome stories out there but they're only 12 episodes long. How on earth do you expect me to get into a story with 12 episodes in it?! I get that you guys don't want to spend forever on the episodes but why make them so short? Another thing I've noticed is the diamond issue. I know I'm not the only person to bring this up. I don't appreciate having to pay 30 diamonds for one choice. I also don't appreciate there being 5 diamond choices in one episode. How am I supposed to love this app when I have to pay in order to go down the path I want? It's not fair to the reader. I understand you guys want to profit off of your app but this is way too much. You should give us more opportunities to earn diamonds. Make mini games! Then we can play those to get diamonds. All I know is that I won't keep using this app if something doesn't change. You guys are losing a lot of readers because you're all money hungry.
Thank you for reading! Hold down and press "Helpful" if you want something to change in this app!!
Athena Nerd 16 - Pros and Cons
I like Episode, but there are a lot of faults. First off, a lot of the stories only have choices that cost gems. For example, Protect Me (Always) had not a SINGLE choice that didn’t cost gems. Also, I think the rewards for reading an entire story should be more than 1 gem. Finishing a story should be at least three or four gems. I appreciated how in the Demi Lovato story you could earn gems in the actual gameplay, which made it much more appealing to me. Also, many of the stories have inappropriate material, and a majority of users are children, but I do appreciate the addition of warnings about content. I have seen many reviews about passes, but that doesn’t bother me too much, but maybe as time goes on, you can earn more than 4 passes as added incentive to continue playing. That being said, there are definitely some perks to episode. I think that many of the stories are beautifully written and they compel me to keep reading. Most of them portray real life problems and issues but I still feel they are captivating. I definitely appreciate how most of the stories if not all are LGBTQ plus friendly. Also I think the aspect of designing your own character’s appearance and deciding a name is super fun and useful, end it lets the reader feel in control, as well as doesn’t give the opportunity to discriminate between races or anything. Overall, although there are so many things I would change about episode, this is definitely a game worth keeping!
just_melexy - It’s good but....
The game is really good but I’ve seen some issues that I have and some that other people may have the first is the passes issue I’m not getting mad I don’t really like that you have to wait hours just to get three passes sometimes I don’t even get three I get two I was thinking maybe watching adds to get more passe. 2 gems I know that you have to pay or watch episodes for gems but I was thinking maybe just giving more than just one an episode maybe like ten or five. 3 choices when I do an episode like Cameron dalles or pitch perfect I sometimes run into choices that require 20 gems I certenly do not like that I think that no choices should give gems and I understand that the choices are pretty big like you get a cool dress but I still don’t think choices should require gems it’s just unnecessary and I think you should take that out and lastly I don’t think this happens to evreyone but every time I try to make a a episode of my own it dosent let me it says story has eneded would you like to create and it doesn’t let me create that started about a week ago and last every time before that happened I finessed my episode series it wouldn’t let me post it to real and i got mad cause I worked really hard on it so those are some things I think you should fix but otherwise I really love the app and think it’s amazing
dancer girl101 - Way to expensive
I’m going to start off with all the things I like about Episode. For one thing, I love how it is interactive and the stories are super fun to read. But I don’t like how much the outfits cost that don’t even really effect the story for example, I bought an exclusive outfit and used up all of my gems and all the characters were super impressed, but then, it gave me the option to pay for an exclusive scene so really!?!? I wasted all my gens on an outfit that didn’t even get me a bonus scene which is ssuuppeerr annoying. And if I don’t get the exclusive outfit? Everyone overreacts and says I look awful which is also annoying. Then there’s the fact that I saved up to get this outfit I really wanted and I was reading the last story that I needed to get the last gem when all of a sudden it gave me a choice to pay for a scene but I didn’t want to but, my finger slipped and hit the exclusive option and I didn’t even get a chance to confirm which was super annoying because I didn’t even want that in the first place!! The gems are also basically impossible to save up because you only get one per chapter which I think is unfair. Last but not least, I would like it if you could make it so that I can change my characters height and body type because it is not realistic that all the girls are shorter than all of the guys and all is the guys are super fit and have six-packs whole all of the girls are super skinny and have big hips and a small waste.
Hcurrey - Passes and Time
I love the interactive stories this has to offer and their plots are intriguing as well. However it not only takes forever to get passes but the timer on it is glitchy. For example, just now I went back to the app around 6 o’clock 6:30pm and it is currently 9pm. I used the rest of my four passes before 7 and it showed 3 and a half hours left but when I just checked it was telling me I still had to wait for 2 and a half hours instead of one and a half. That’s an hours extra wait time. Players shouldn’t have to use all four passes in order to reset the timer to earn more. It should be an hour or even half an hour for each pass with the option to watch ads (limited number per day) in order to earn more. Additionally players should be able to watch ads and earn gems, even if it’s just two or three at a time because we want to be able to play the game fully. Also for whatever reason I feel super guilty when I don’t do the premium option but that could just be my anxiety and lack of friends in the real world.
Anyways the timer can be super glitchy and needs to be fixed as well as the opportunity to earn passes or just have a shorter waiting period. The pass timer being glitchy and awful has happened to me before on multiple occasions and I would like that to be fixed. The lack of ways to obtain extra passes and the unearned wait time really sets what otherwise is a really fun break, back two stars.
NoeyTheUnicorn - Like it/don’t like it
Don’t get me wrong, great game! The stories are all nicely hard worked on, and detailed. But then it comes to hatred! Seriously, I know this isn’t real life but...would you have to pay diamonds to wear something nice that you already have in your closet! No! At least have a source of some sort to earn them, instead of waiting a day to only earn like 1. I understand you want to make money off of your game, but this is to much! Those people who are insanely rich probably don’t have a problem, but I’m sure those people who don’t have iTunes money and stuff are sick of having to wait a whole day for diamonds and 3-4 hours for only 3-4 tickets! Really, in all honesty I would actually watch like 17 ads to get a few diamonds and tickets rather than waiting a day, and 3-4 hours. It’s true. I just want to watch my story without waiting a whole 3-4 hours. Also the diamonds is just outrageous. How would you feel, in real life, there’s a nice dress/suit in your closet. Would you straight out pay 20 diamonds when it’s already in your closet. Or would you just stick to a old, ugly outfit? I’m so tired of this, it honestly wants to make me delete the game from stress of diamonds! Who knew a diamond could make you stressed? Yes! I am STRESSED! So please fix this or this game goes in the trash for me! Not trying to be rude but it seems it’s the only way I can make my point! So for random review readers..if your about to download the app just know what’s coming your way!
swooten223 - Best Interactive Story App
I have had this app since the beginning. It’s the one app I’ll never delete. So many amazing stories with beautiful storylines and plots and incredible animation/directing/art work. Once you’re done with one story then there’s thousands more to choice from. Literally every storyline you can think of is on here and I love the diversity. The app itself is great and easy to navigate and I love how you can personalize your own profile on here and have a list of recommended stories. My favorite part of the app is the fact that anyone can create stories in here much like Wattpad but I’m strictly a reader as I don’t have the skill set to direct my own stories on here because it definitely takes skill to create the ‘episodes’ but I enjoy the other users story greatly. The only thing I don’t like about the app is the featured stories that the app’s team makes because they often cost a lot of money for gem choices and sometimes those gem choices are the only desirable option or the only way to dress nice and for people who cannot afford those choices can miss out on important scenes and also those storylines tend to have terrible plots so you waste your money on gem choices for a mediocre story. I do use the unlimited passes for $9.99 a month which is worth it if you read a lot on this app though!
_H4lo - Needs Some Work.
The concept of this game is amazing, having a bunch of different stories, choices and personalities to chose from but the fact that most of the choices are locked away if you don’t have gems is really disappointing. Even in the first 3 stories you are given nothing really happens if you don’t have any gems, all you get to do are the blander choices and the stories goes on and on with filler to get that ONE chapter that you read 12 other chapters for. Honestly it’s very disappointing, even though that may be the case it may still be fun seeing what happens without them. But also the way tickets are given is very strange, the 2 tickets that you get are given ever 3 hours, but the 3 hour timer doesn’t start till after you use all of them. Which means you get to read 2 chapters every 3 HOURS, even though it only takes maybe 5-15 minutes to read a chapter. You should instead just get them every 3 hours no matter if you’ve used the previous 2 or not. The gem choices should be lower especially in the starting 3 stories. Some of the choices will be from 20-50 gems even though you start with 0 gems at the beginning of the game. The fact that this games REQUIRES you to buy big amounts of tickets and gems is ridiculous. If the game developers would find a better way to profit the game would become much more enjoyable for its players/readers.
iltg=i love this game:)))) - AMAZING
Dear,whoever made this game:)
OK so in this review I will be telling you all of the good things about this game. None of the bad things about this game. So this game is really great and I really appreciate the developers and yeah, so this game has a lot of stuff and okay I will be telling you one of the bad things I just barely downloaded this game and I read a review just very that said if you play it for a long time you won’t have to wait three hours to get your tickets back so you can play the game and I had to wait three hours for one I don’t know well I haven’t stop having to wait three hours I really appreciate this game and that’s why I’m kinda disappointed about this. Sorry that was a really long sentence. Ok here we go OK here we go I said that’s what is sorry I know this is it really bad or you OK if we talk about the good things then one of the things is that the characters are honestly to me it look like real people like the way you rock the waiting room and like the way that they kind of like I don’t know like what kind of talk there like talking like a real person moving like a real person and it’s just kind of like honestly if I were to be like a Real person in one of those characters I am are you a joke I would not know how to do this I honestly do not act like that but yeah there’s a lot of things that are really good about this game OK will thanks for making the game I guess:)
my love of episode - Issue
Just want to say first that I really love episode and I have been reading these stories for a very long time but just a few days ago I was having some issues with the app. I went to read one of my favorite stories and it popped up telling me I had to agree to the terms and conditions and it has never done that before and also I noticed that all my stories were not listed on my favorites they were back in the genres. Also when I tried to read my story it took me back to the very beginning and I was already on chapter 20 or so in fact it did all my stories like that. It wouldn’t even let me save them to my favorites. I’m am really upset about this so I sent in a complaint to support and they sent me an email telling me they had to restore the app and that I had to uninstall the app which I did and that they would let me know when I could reinstall the app which I haven’t heard anything back from them yet and I have been trying to find out how long this process would take because I miss reading my stories but they won’t answer me back which is really aggravating. I’m just trying to find out about this issue so could you please find out something for me and let me know cause I would love to get back to reading my stories cause I love episode. Thank you
SakuraSprings - Pretty Good
I won’t deny it, the game’s entertaining. I find myself genuinely frustrated to have to wait 3 1/2 hours to keep playing again. I just wish the game would stop guilt tripping the player to constantly spend money so they can wear something or do an exciting action to change events in the story. It just bothers me how much manipulation is in the dialogue. The game should be happy to let you use the normal route, not trying to convince you to use your money about three times per chapter. (This applies to the story I’m playing through.) But other than that, the character design’s pretty nice, the story doesn’t seem half bad, and I do feel pretty happy playing when I’m not being asked to pay money. The storyline does seem to try to convince the player they’re supposed to be interested in one character, even if they don’t like them at all. I’ve seen multiple instances of this, but I don’t think I need to name any specifics. In summary, the game’s pretty great when it’s not trying to tell you what you should be doing. It’s truly great at the points where you have your choices to make. I think it’s pretty good, overall. I suggest it to people, but trust me, you don’t need to pay them money. The story will survive without it. If you want to spend your money, feel free, but don’t let them manipulate you too much. It’s called a “choose your story” game for a reason.
Go1972 - STRIKE
Hello I’ve had this app for a few years and as I played it I loved it more and more, but it has recently come to my attention how unfair episode is to the community. If you play episodes you know there is Ink and Limelight. Well in a attempt to get rid of ink authors and stories Episode has come with new guidelines. These guidelines apparently don’t apply to limelight authors but ink well we are really getting beat up with this. Some of these new rules include in fight scenes we can’t throw more than 5 punches during the duration of the whole episode, or no teacher and student relations. But it seems that one of there featured limelight stories have those relations so episode I’m afraid to tell you that your breaking your guidelines and now your going to have to change the whole plot of your story. Well at least that’s what you told one of your most popular ink authors to do! Last but not least Episode writers aren’t allowed crossovers due to copyright, even if you get the other authors permission. But episode has a Instagram post talking about a possible crossover but wait it’s only for limelight I guess. These are just a few of there new guidelines and it is killing me. The community wants Episode to listen. Listen to us I don’t even read featured stories or limelight I read ink by my favorite authors, and I’m deleting the app until episode listens to us. I hope you can finally hear us now that we aren’t playing or writing for you anymore.
beehive03 - Love This Game But......
About two years ago, I installed this app and FELL IN LOVE with it❤️I would ALWAYS play it, but an issue had begun and I had to delete it. Last week I re-installed the app because I missed the stories. When it finished downloading and I started reading, I noticed that after the 3 tickets it gave me, I had to wait 20 minutes to play AGAIN. Which kinda surprised me because the last time that I had played the game *2 yrs ago* I could watch an ad, gain a ticket, and easily start playing again. But since nothing ever stays the same, I accepted the fact and waited the 20 mins. Today I went to play again, wasted my 3 tickets and it told me that I had to wait 3 HOURS. Now I understand 20 minutes but to wait 3 HOURS FOR 3 TICKETS IS KINDA STUPID. People are more likely to stop using the app because nobody spends money on a game, and waiting 3 hours doesn't make sense. I would REALLY REALLY appreciate it if you could find another way for us readers to gain tickets. For example , if the reader were to finish reading ,“Watch This Ad For A Free Ticket” and instead of making the person wait, have them watch an ad and start playing again. That will benefit both you, the creator, and us, the readers. I would really love that. I really do like this game but I disagree with having to wait more than 20 minutes on end. I hope you take this into consideration. Have a good day❤️
greaser_central - Kinda good overall.
I wish that they would give readers more tickets or at least have to not wait as long for a refill. Also I have a huge issue with the whole gem situation. I’m currently doing a story that I would love to make some fun and flirty choices but I am unable due to not having enough gems. I wanted to make a choice to find out what someone was thinking about a situation but I would’ve had to use THIRTY-FIVE GEMS! That’s insane! I only have five because I just redownloaded the game and I can’t make any good decisions. My stories are going no where due to me not having enough gems. I personally think they should give readers/players like maybe 60 gems to start off with but even that will only give you about two choices. Another option is reducing the amount choices cost. I saw another review that said maybe limit the cost to 10 gems. I think that’s very reasonable, but it still has it’s cons. Players can save up gems and make more choices at a smaller price, but they also have to wait a LONG time to get this amount and by the time they get enough gems, the choice is long gone and they have to restart their story. My last solution is to give readers/players more gems per episode. Maybe they should earn 5-7 gems instead of one so that way they can make more choices and be more involved in their stories. Other than those issues I think this is a great game with great and very creative stories.
Smashy the Potato - Too much for me, but fun for being stupid.
Episode is a fun app for making stories. It allows you to create practically any kind of story you want. Each separated into two categories: serious and stupid. My stories are on the stupid side. Now, you may be wondering - what else is good about the app? Not much. First off most of the stories that are made by the community or the staff are... well... gross. They’re all about sex and love and dating “bad boys”. This isn’t my interest. Now if you’re into that genre, be my guest. Another problem is how you cannot share your original story on the iPad app. It is a pain in the booty to work on the episodes on the website. To me this app does not have much to it; once you find the beautiful, comedy stories though, the app becomes heaven. Oh! And the advertising - the ADVERTISING for this app is so horribly done. How does this app even have people using it? How about come up with a better marketing idea rather than really annoying, stupid ads about complete random stuff like ‘peeing on someone asleep on the toilet’, or being pregnant and some guy saying ‘yay it wasn’t a food baby!’. Honestly, what. The. Heck. If you wish to make everyone smile by writing and creating a hilarious story use this app (I extremely recommend it for this use). If you are searching for something steamy to read, pick this app. Personally, I use it for writing stupid and pointless stories and showing them off to the world.
svfc3 - Please Listen to Us!!
I first downloaded Episode years ago way back when it was first being released. And I loved it! For a little while. I found a lot of little flaws that eventually built up and made my experience awful. So I deleted it. Then a year or so after that, I redownloaded it because I wanted to create a story and I missed reading all the stories. But again little things got in the way and I deleted it. And downloaded it for a third time because I really wanted to play. This last time I downloaded it I saw that a lot of things had changed like the ticket and gem/diamond situations. It has already begun to frustrate me and I’ve had the app for 20 hours. So, I decided to check out the reviews to see if other people were feeling the same way. I went back four months, which isn’t a whole lot, and people back then were complaining about the ticket and gem issue. That means that Episode has not fixed this problem for months but the app has the holiday design and says it was updated more recently than that. This means that the people at Episode aren’t bothering to listen which is really disappointing Honestly, it is a really fun game but I would not recommend downloading it unless you’re okay with not having any choices or having the options and spending a bunch of real money. As someone who was there at the beginning, I am very disappointed. I wish the Episode team would read these reviews and understand that people don’t want to pay.
Pheonix😂❤️ - Everything expensive for no reason
I like the game and all of its types of genre, but I have this a one star because everything mostly about diamonds which makes sense, but some should at least be free to choose. For example when you are choosing an outfit from your closet and it’s a really good outfit, but then you have to use diamonds to wear it. Which makes no sense because it’s your own clothes and your not actually buying from the store, so it should be free since your at home and not at the star, Also some points in the story would cost diamonds but you really need that choice ,so that your story can progress better for an example in Kiss list there is a lot of choices which include using diamonds and some choices do make sense to have diamonds for, but some of them don’t need diamonds and needs to be free. Also another thing about the clothes is that when you don’t have the right amount of diamonds to pick that choice you have to go with the other outfit which is really horrible and effect the story in a bad way sometimes. I understand that you need money, but at least make some way to get diamonds easier and quicker so that we have more of an enjoyable time playing your game.
I hope you understand and have a good time

Meeee!!!!🍩🍩🍩 - Meh :/
This app was big part of my teenage years and have been using it ever since it had the bug eyed, weirdly proportioned characters and haven’t had many issues. But for a period of time, I deleted it and only recently have i reinstalled it. I was pleasantly surprised to come back to a 3D art style but now it feels like i can’t do anything in the stories. I feel like i have to pay diamonds for every single thing and it’s like my character is just going through the story, heading forwards the inevitable. it isn’t even fun to play anymore. For example, in Blood Lust there was multiple times where i had to choose between two love interests but always ended up going off on my own and being boring. I bring this up because i remember back in the day when this would happen you COULD pick either or without paying and something eventful would happen and impact your story. It was amazing. I feel like that’s not really available anymore and all the stories are lacking in plot and intensity :/ But other that that there’s only one more thing that’s bothering me and that’s that the game stole my gems! I was playing Love on Fire and got to the last episode where I received the voice to buy lingerie or not. I bought it (with 20 diamonds!!!), but i never got to use it! Which was super disappointing and a waste of gems. I love the new style and everything but it feels like the stories have lost well, the stories.
Applauce - Meh
The stories are generic and seem to always put you as a Mary Sue. The first story, The Kiss List, is so eye-rollingly generic. “Sigh, I’m just so rich and instantly popular, it’s so annoying” the main character is just so unlikeable. I doubt if a girl moved into town and appointed herself as the savior of the school, people would be fawning over her. And all the stories are like that. They sound like stories a middle school kid wrote about what they think high school is like.
I understand that games cost money and you need to get paid, but they REALLY strong arm you into spending gems. Even from the beginning they make the story changing decisions cost more gems than you have (a whopping 20 gems, and you start with only one). You can purchase gems or earn them by completing chapters, but you only get 1 at a time. So after playing through 20 chapters, being forced to make terrible decisions the whole time, you’ll finally have enough gems saved to make 1 good decision. It’s not worth it IMO. You’ll be using more than 100 gems per story (minimum $10), which sounds like a lot, but is only 5 choices.
This seems like a game for kids, because the stories are so generic and the choices are obvious. But the themes about sex and alcohol make this for adults, I doubt many adults would actually care for a game like this though. Just don’t give this to your kids with a credit card attached to your account, or they’ll rack up a fortune.
Mitch "HipDangle" C. - Fun Game, but $ Talks...Too Much
First and foremost, I want to say that this game is actually really fun. Woman or man, it’s very interesting. The storylines are interesting and the variety of stories keeps it interesting. However, there are a couple major issues. In order to complete the stories, you need passes. Once you run out of passes, it takes roughly four hours to get more which is a little excessive amount of time to wait. Not a huge deal however. Secondly, and the biggest inconvenience, you encounter several choices in these stories where you only have two choices and one will need gems in order to make that choice which would progress your character in a positive way. The other choice, which is free, will not and potentially do the opposite. The issue with this is that these choices cost upwards of 19 gems and you only get ONE gem per episode you complete unless you want to spend actual money on gems in the app. Now, since this app has minimal ads, I imagine the majority of their money comes from people buying gems and passes, but I don’t feel like it’s necessarily fair that people are almost forced to buy gems in order to make positive choices in the game even if they can’t/don’t want to spend actual money on them. I’m sure several people, including myself, would be willing to have more ads if it means we actually get more options.
CoolRayGirl2004 - great app, buuuuuut
So this is an amazing app, but I find the only flaw with this app is the amount of gems needed, and that we do not get enough tickets! If every three hours, I get four tickets, by then I would be probably be occupied with something else, which takes me away from the feeling of using the game. I honestly think you should stack up on the tickets, let’s say if you missed six hours of gameplay, you get 8 tickets, for nine hours you get 12, and so on and so forth. OR you could give us up to six tickets with three hours. You could even do five. With the gems, it’s another story. You would typically get 1 gem from watching any episode story (created BY episode or some authors who work with them) but from any other you get zero. I’m thinking, we should get two gems per ‘episode’ (episode’s organization with authors) and from authors around just on episode that aren’t working with the team of episode should give us one. And the amount of gems needed to wear a dress is kinda ridiculous. for a dress, it should be five, and for a big decision, 10-15 or if it’s a crazy game changer then 20 at the most. Ads are a pain in the back as well, we don’t need two at the beginning of it, but rather one at the start and one at the finish. I also believe everyone should gain five diamonds when they finish any book. Thank you for your time :)
personovertherainbow - Very Happy
Me and episode have had our tough times but I am happy to say that things have gotten better! I absolutely adore the stories I am finding, though some categories (horror/thriller) I wish I saw more of in the recommendations. I am very glad to see that we can have a refill of passes every four hours now(and thank goodness for that or else I wouldn’t be on it as much) Though some things have gotten to me... but it isn’t to any of the creator’s fault or a big problem, really, I just find it annoying. Most of the stories MC are girls, which is fine and everything but I would just love it if I could see more male MC’s (and also “fan mail”. ) Fan mail, love the idea but wish I could have a chat with the authors or just tell them have done an awesome job.. I don’t know if it’s just me but I think a chat room would be awesome! Plus diamonds. . . Yeah that’s been a thorn in my side but since we can gain them through reading a chapter of episode’s published books it wasn’t a big problem unless you actually want to spend gems. I know it’s a way for people to spend money but I think maybe five times a day we can watch an ad for a diamond(s). Anyhoo, overall am awesome app and I love the way the animation looks— it keeps getting better and better in my opinion.(oh and!) HAPPY NEW YEARS 🥳🎊🎉
mattwill2016 - I like this but.....
Let me just say that this app has many great stories with great plot lines. I like that you can choose how a story can go. With that being said, however, if you want something good to happen, you will have to pay gems that cost lots of money. I understand you want to make money off of this game which is a really important thing to do, but lots of us don’t really have that much money to burn away. I think it would be better if you had the option to either pay gems or watch an ad to make something good happen in a story. I understand that many gold choices vary greatly in gem values. So I am not sure how this would work out completely. Maybe have interactive ads play for the more expensive stuff? Then maybe a simple ad for the less expensive ones? I know this would kind of defeat the purpose of having gems, so I would think that gems could be used in other ways like buying more tickets/passes if a viewer decides he/she doesn’t want to wait so long for new free tickets/passes. I was also wondering if you would make it to where we can go back to episodes we have already seen and read them again. That way lots of us like me would enjoy reading a story over again that we really liked. I honestly would not mind if we had to pay gems in order to do that since I think it would be totally worth it! ;)
bristlent - eh
i love this app a-lot, but i have a couple problems with it which interferes with the experience! firstly, i feel like 2 tickets is not enough after having to wait THREE hours. some people don’t have the money to buy more tickets, so i think there should be an option to watch ads for tickets, which also gets me into my next gripe. second, i can’t do what i want to without gems, and that really annoys me! i love the feature which gives you gems after reading certain stories but with there only being 2 tickets, that’s only 2 gems per every 3 hours. if i’m persistent and read 2 chapters every 3 hours, after 9 hours i’ll (maybe) have acquired 20 gems which is only enough to make ONE “good” choice. i think there should also be an option to watch ads for gems. lastly, i’ve been trying to read the next chapter of a story but every-time i click “play”, it plays TONS of ads! i don’t mind having to watch 2-3 ads, but i swear i’ve watched 20 by now within the last 30 minutes! and i mean 20 ads in a row. ad after ad after AD! i keep thinking after watching the next ad it’ll allow me to get to the next chapter of my story ... NOPE! i even tried restarting the app, but it’s still having me watch more ADS! i’ve even left it overnight hoping i’d be able to get back to my story... STILL NO! i swear i’ve watched every ad from every one of Episode’s sponsors! pls fix this and improve the gameplay.
SamanthaAL - It’s fun but frustrating
I have downloaded and deleted this game a few times. All because of the tickets and diamonds. I was hoping that in time maybe they would come out with new updates on ways to earn more diamonds or up the tickets you earn. Literally two tickets and once your done it’s like 3 hours before you get another. The diamonds are outrageous. It costs so much for choosing clothing options and choices that if you really want the story to be “your” choice you would have to come out of pocket, and quite a lot. The community story’s are great. No cost but so far I am on my first book and my options of choosing the story is limited. That could be just the one I am currently reading so I’ll find out once I start another. That is why I went with those story’s though because I don’t have to pay for the diamonds. But only two tickets is really frustrating. Why not start people out with 5? It seems like the makers and story writers of the games too focus is making people spend their money. I know ads are annoying but if it cut back on the diamond and tickets down fall I would be willing to deal, or even pay to eliminate ads. This game is great and has awesome potential but can really make you livid when you see the amount of money you have to spend to even play, choose what you like, or have the story line go your way. It should be called Episode: PAY your way to your story.
HDgchxxsfhfxbjc - Great game that could be so much better!
This game is amazing but it could be much better!
The gem situation as many people say is ridiculous. I like that you can earn gems after the chapters but I would like more options that don’t include paying we’re I can get more gems like watching one ad for five gems everyday or something like that also the ticket situation is not good. I don’t think it should take three to four hours to get a one ticket or even two. If you are going to keep the timer at three or four hours we should get at least five tickets either that or you need to shorten the timer to 30 minutes or something. Also if you start playing the game for the first time the first gem choice should be free and you should get a complimentary 20 gems at the start of the game that would be a very nice touch. I understand games need money and in app purchases but it is unfair that the only way you can get gems is to read a chapter of a story and only have two tickets every three or four hours. Other than that this game is amazing! The stories are awesome as well as the plot and characters! Don’t change the stories and whoever is writing them props to you! Please think about what I have said because I’m telling you these small changes can turn your game from a four to a five star game! Keep writing and developing! : )
JS7284 - Amazing
I really like episode. It’s really good to get ur mind of things and all. Different genres and types of stories are really exciting to start and play/watch. One thing that is a bit bothering is that most stories created by the community have such a long story. But no matter what choice u pick, it’s the same ending. Like, what’s the point of my choices if it ends the same way.... it’s basically a story to watch. Not play and have a different ending for thing s. Of course, there are a lot other stories that have a lot of different endings and I like those. If episode could have a section that specified different endings that would be cool. And also the love interests in the story( if there is more than one), u always have to pick one on the end. Like it can’t be during the story when u pick the choice of who you spend more time with or who u support more. It’s always the end u pick the important things. Well if there was a rule(not a rule but like a message sent to authors to inform what makes readers happy) that would help a lot. Other than that I love episode and I don’t mind the cost of gems because if u make other choices right, it makes up for it. Like in the “Kiss List”. So that’s only one problem of episode that I want to point out. Thanks for your conideration.
R3allyUniqu325 - I adore this game but...
UPDATE: Now they have subscriptions. 2.99 weekly which is almost $150 a year. 7.99 a month which is almost $100 a year and then annually is $40 which is the one I would suggest if you decide to spend money on subscribing. The gems are not the only issue, now I’m not getting tickets at all. They are not being replenished after a few hours like before. I don’t know what’s going on but I hope they fix it. I’d rather pay for the app a month with unlimited passes and pay for gems IF I choose to. Having to pay for both seems greedy to me. I’m hoping this gets better because I love the stories and have had the app for over 2 years but if this doesn’t change I might have to delete it.
The only problem I have is the GEMS. The amount of gems we have to use during the episode is insane. .99 for 10 gems, 1.99 for 22 gems, 4.99 for 60 gems but the kicker is usually you need 25 gems(sometimes 15)just to make romantic moves, wear something nice, or do or see something important & fun for the story. 25 gems per episode of 20 episodes is 500 gems which is worth around $50😒. That’s if you’re not playing something super popular like Pretty Little Liars which I remember them asking for well OVER a 100 gems in ONE EPISODE to make what seems like really important choses to where you feel like you have to buy them😩 I am fully aware you don’t need gems to read the story but I hate how they try to make you feel obligated to buy them.
SweetSerena - It’s ok
I like some of the stories I wish choices for episode stories didn’t cost so much in gems. You can’t continue with the good part of you don’t have enough gems then your sitting waiting forever to earn enough or you have to spend money. I don’t so the stories sit there unread. I do like some of the community stories like pregnant by a vampire and similar mystery but some stories are unfinished and it’s understandable because they have lives. It’s hard to find stories that are worth reading in the meantime waiting for updated content hoping the author created more or earning enough gems for episode stories. So I had lost interest, and I don’t come on as often anymore. I will come back from time to time to see if a story continued from a user. There is one I follow who I really like but she is busy so I basically have only cane to check for her updates. I’ll still browse to see if a new story is interesting but so far none have been as good as hers. I do follow her on Twitter. I can’t remember how to spell her name or if it’s ok to say it here but she does have good stories and customizations if you read her stories you’ll know who I’m talking about anyway. So if episode didn’t have their stories cost so much in gems I’d be on more and I’d give a better rating so that’s why it’s ok. And the only reason I haven’t deleted the app is because the user I follow. The app should thank her. She’s really good.
Diauntamed - This app would be awesome if?
The one thing I truly hate about this app is the amount of gems 💎 you have to use for choosing what you want to do in a story !! It’s totally ridiculous that you only get one 💎 at a time after each chapter verses the amount of gems 💎 you need to use if you wanted to do the challenges in the stories .. oh and the amount of money you have to pay to even buy some is a rip off !! I bought some and feel I got ripped of !! I’ve tried getting into it and did do a few stories but the outcome was always really disappointing because half the time you cannot do what you really would like to do .. it be ok if it be 2 or 3 gems 💎 needed to perform the challenges but it be ridiculous from 20 💎 to 35 💎 on most stories.. and the tickets 🎫 are somewhat fair to keep reading but also get disappointing .. it be a lot more fun if it was reasonable.. Also the earn gems 💎 button doesn’t work for me at all!! If this wasn’t the case I totally like this app!! But am definitely gonna delete it now! And believe me I totally get that people need their profits but come on be reasonable!! Oh & by the way I totally don’t get why people rate this app 4 stars rating when they know they cant accomplish a lot of stories challenges without paying so much !! Smh unbelievable 😮 I wish this would change because then I totally would recommend this app!! But as of now am gonna just delete it and go back to reading regular stories!!
a pkayer - Love it! But...
I love this game so much! Usually I don’t have a problem with it it’s a fun interactive game that has so many different things and stories to read. I love all of the different varieties of stories you can read ( my favorites are the ones that have a lot of drama, mystery, romance, and a lot of hot guys lol) it’s so much fun and I’ve had it for such a long time. The only real problem that I have with it is the gems...They are just so annoying. Now if your someone that has TONS of money are your parents don’t care if you waste it on random crap then your all set. ( not me ) unlike others I am one who must suffer through the pain of no gems 24/7. I just think that the “exclusive” options in the game to change your story is dumb and that it’s WAY to expensive. No one really has the money to buy so many gems and just spend it wisely. And I also think it’s unfair that the people with gems get the “better” ending in their story. Like if you don’t but the exclusive option the story is basically ruined. Your whole good Story just got trashed just because you didn’t but the exclusive option. Other than that I am a complete huge fan on the game! I love the game, keep doing all your hard work to make the game better and better!

hellokitty1451 - Love it but.....
It’s a good app to read and I really can’t complain about it but I hate that the app didn’t save my stories because I logged in with my Facebook but it didn’t save my place in the story. For example if I was on episode 43 in a story that was 50 episodes long I’m going to have to start over from the beginning and that happened to all of my stories so I deleted the app. Maybe 8 months later I decided to get the app again I login with my Facebook as always and I just started with different stories. But I have to wait 4 hours for 2 passes and I’m not going to pay for cause i don’t have money like that. But every 4 hours I get 2 passes and sometimes 1 of the passes get wasted because for some stories the author will write questions and answers for just one episode. So I really only have 1 pass every 4 hours. I’m not going to lie I love the app but it’s not my fault that something happened to my phone and the app couldn’t save my progress. Before something happened to my phone I had at least 14 episodes on there and every 4 hours they’ll add more. But now I have to wait just for 2 and that ridiculous. But I’m going to keep the app this time cause it don’t make sense to delete it and keep having this problem. But they use to give 4 passes for 4 hours. My question is why did they change it?
ashlebradle122299 - Why
I downloaded this game as a joke and mostly out of boredom, but why am I addicted!!! I find some things really annoying which are in order
#1) if you do the stories that are promoted on the front page of the app the gems are basically required to do good in the game and this game is promoted towards 12+ so that’s asking kids to use money on a game... how much sense does that make. Also, the outfit differences between the gem outfits and the regular is really annoying they give you the choice between a perfect outfit and an either destroyed, ugly, or just confusing outfit and your character always makes some type of petty response about. It’s so irritating
#2) the whole “ticket” set up is really irritating too. I don’t understand why you have to wait 4 hours to be able to start another season or whatever, OR again you can pay for it but 12 year olds don’t have money..??
I understand the need for companies to make money but it’s seriously irritating. You shouldn’t be putting into kids minds if you don’t have money you basically fail at life situations it’s just not okay. Why am I getting mad over the fact I need gems to wear the cute outfit to a fake party to impress a nonexistent ex. And why have I actually spent money on this app, which is how I know the money makes a difference. I took off 2 stars for those reason but the game is fun and a good stress reliever at times.
*Nickname Entered* - My favorite app, have some suggestions
Episode has always been fun but it keeps getting better. The stories are great quality and the characters are beautiful to customize (like they just look nice). I especially like the feature of watching ads for tickets - our prayers have been answered! I do wish that not accepting gem choices could have less of a negative effect on the story though. Maybe make gem choices cause an EXTRA fun experience and declining the choice is a neutral experience. It feels rn like declining the gem choices disappoints the other characters and you have a less fun experience which isn’t super fun if you don’t want to pay money.
Another suggestion: I’d love if you could make it so that we can write stories on a mobile device. I only have episode on my phone and I’d love to write stories, but I’m not able to.
Also also: It’d also be cool if we could customize the characters’ body types instead of just face shape. The bodies on all the current characters are fine, but it’s weird that they’re all the same (all the dudes have abs and all the girls are slim with curves. Not super realistic).
I know that sounds like a lot of complaints but I really do love this app and I am so grateful that it’s the amazing quality that it is.
lydiakim5791 - diamonds
ok so this app is really fun and interactive but obviously there’s a huge problem with the game. it is literally NEAR IMPOSSIBLE to get gems and when you do, you have to spend them all on a choice that barely makes a difference in the story.
most of the users on this app are children and teens and they don’t have the money to be spending 20 bucks on 100 gems that will get used on choices that should already be available to us. most choices are around 20-30 gems, but it is so hard to get gems. i think that it should either be easier to get gems (through ads, challenges, etc.) or that the choices should be a lot cheaper to make the gem/choice ratio more balanced.
i also think it’s unfair that if we don’t spend any gems it causes a huge difference on our characters but if we do spend gems, it barely does anything. for example, if we choose to use gems on a cute prom dress, we’ll get a few compliments from our crush but if we don’t spend gems, we have to wear an old victorian dress and ruin the prom.
i know that the reason behind making gems so unattainable is so you guys can make money, but please keep in mind the feelings of your readers because they are the reason you are even making money. i would also like to point out that this app seems to have a lot more hackers and cheats than other apps. i don’t think this is a coincidence.
emiru42 - Someone needs to fix the choices options.
This game is constantly being falsely advertised as an interactive story where you get to make choices. Considering we already are asked to watch ads from sponsors before each chapter, as well as have passes as a purchase option, the idea of having to spend gems to do literally anything is absurd. Premium choices that cost extra gems that you have to either wait to save up or buy to get ahead would make total sense. But it should not be the ONLY way to make ANY KIND of option for EACH chapter of a story. Many stories make it so that if you can’t or don’t want to dish out $100 in gems for that story, your choices amount to your character saying “no, I know we just made this whole plan, but I suddenly don’t want to do it anymore for absolutely no reason other than I want to convenience you.”
It’s especially annoying because in most cases, it could be so easily avoided. Ask a player to choose between three party dresses, two being perfectly acceptable and free and one being super fancy and cost a few gems that maybe unlocks a special scene, not asking if they would like to fit in at a party for $25 and be complimented by the love interest once, or wear raggedy pajamas instead of something your friend had already given to you that there is absolutely no reason not to wear.
Add actual choices or stop advertising that you can do so in the game.
Rivka :) - Two Big Problems
Episode is quite a fun and engaging app. However, a common theme that has been arising is gems and passes. Passes regenerate VERY SLOWLY, and you can’t acquire more without real money. Meaning if you want to binge a story, too bad. With gems, there is no way to acquire them naturally. You can either get one gem per chapter when playing specific stories that Episode selected as “gem stories” (most are Episode originals, and they only give gems on the first read), get a few gems throughout the first Demi story (multiple times), or there is, of course, buying them. Gem purchases are pretty ridiculous too. Some are reasonable (say 5 gems for a dress) then maybe you’ll find yourself staring at a 50 GEM PURCHASE for something ridiculous like a dinner with someone. Most of the time, when presented with a cool gem purchase, you’ll end up saying, “No thanks, sorry!” because you only have a few gems. It is beyond tedious to always be presented with a gem purchase you’d like to make, but only having so many to spare. And this same theme applies to passes. A story leaves off at s big cliffhanger, you want to continue but...sorry! Gotta wait a few hours. Daily or weekly gems/passes would be a miracle, as they’d allow people who don’t have the money to spend on gems and passes to be able to experience the bulk of Episode stories, which a lot of us are missing out on.

this whole “spend 25 gems to wear this dress” or “spend 25 gems to go do this daring thing to accelerate the plot” thing is really frustrating. seems to me everyone has been complaining about it in the reviews but NOTHING has been done to fix it. instead of giving only one gem after you complete a story, how about you give 3 or 5. that way, gems add up more frequently and you can make those better decisions more often. i get the whole “we need money to ensure we can operate the game!” thing but instead of charging money for passes AND gems, just do it for the passes. i don’t really mind waiting 4 hours to get 4 however it would be nice if there was an added “watch ads to get passes/gems” feature. because then, the creators will get money to operate Episode & the players will get more passes and gems. it’s really annoying to be in the middle of a great story to then make the worse choice because i don’t have enough gems. if you think about it, if you get 4 passes in 4 hours, that’s only 4 gems every time you play. that would take literally almost a week to collect 20 gems which isn’t even the regular base price for a better choice in the game. this game is focused around YOU (the player) making choices in the story to make the plot go how you please. how am I supposed to control the plot if i don’t have gems? just doesn't make sense.
Ayeeeeeee123 - Can I give negative stars at the moment ??
I used to have high hopes for this app. I mean, REALLY high hopes. I knew they could go places (if they did everything correctly). These past couple of years I’ve noticed them take a HUGGGGE step back. I don’t know what happened. They have gone from ignoring writers and readers when they are being harassed (especially POC of the community, they didn’t do anything about it), to having very bad communication skills with the writers and the community, to not sticking up for POC on the forums when people are saying hateful and disgusting things to them (yes, Jeremey i’m talking about YOU) and NOW they are STEALING writers stories and claiming them as their OWN and saying they are ORIGINAL.
i don’t know what happened to this app (and the people working for it) but i do know i can’t support an app who clearly don’t care for EVERYONE equally. I just can’t. I want to support the writers on the app that I love, but now I might have to find other ways to support them.
Please, please, please be mindful when downloading and using it. It’s more than a reading app, there are REAL people creating these wonderful stories and i don’t like them being taken advantage of and losing something that took hard work and means a lot to them.
I’ll probably stick with other interactive reading/games for now.
Maddiebratty - Would give full stars if it weren’t for these issues!!
Hi, my name is Maddie and I got episode a few weeks ago after having it for a year and deleting it. I noticed right away that 1, you only have 2 passes, and 2, you have to unlock Six or seven stories to get the full catalog. I wouldn’t mind having to unlock some stories if it weren’t for the fact that, to get a story, you have to read 3 episodes. For some people,it’s not that bad to wait for a pass refill, but for me personally, I don’t want to have to wait 2 days to unlock one story. This issue wasn’t the one I’m really upset about.
The issue I’m upset about is that (1) when I tried to log in to my old account, it wouldn’t let me. And (2) while trying to read an episode in the story “a little more me”, I couldn’t read the last episode I needed to unlock the full catalog. I tried reading my other stories because I thought that it was just something wrong with that specific story, but it was still not letting me read!! I restarted the game but it still didn’t work, I reset my WiFi and data plan but it didn’t work, AND I turned off my phone,restarted it, and opened episode, AND IT STILL DID NOT WORK!!!! I’m not saying that this is a bad game, but seriously, if the developer(s) is reading this, please fix this 🥺

mxchristineeee - Pros and cons of this app
I used to play this game all the time when I was younger. It was really fun and always entertaining. I’ve suddenly gotten into it again and I’ve got to say that the new update is quite disappointing. It is very limited, and not as fun. You either have to buy everything to get the full package or read six chapters of a story you don’t enjoy. This is very inconvenient, I understand that you need to make money but is it really necessary to take away pretty much everything that we were use to having? I’m extremely disappointed with how Episode is running their app. It used to be my all time favourite game and now it’s turned into a massive bummer, it really isn’t that fun anymore. I also don’t like that you have to pay to pick a choice in a game. Nobody who plays the app should have to pay gems to pick an option in the story. I feel that gems should be used for other things such as certain features for when you are designing your characters. That would be much more reasonable don’t you think? I hope that you take my suggestions into at least a little bit of consideration. Because overall your audience is what matters, they keep your app running.
Sienna jadecats - amazing but has a few issues
Episode is a great app, for those who like to read different genres of stories, to people who create them. I just think there should be a few changes. Including: Ages. It’s annoying that there isn’t ages. I know that they’ve added babies, but not like toddlers, kids, tweens, or teens. Another would have to be sizes. A main issue I don’t like creating stories is weight sizes or height. Although when you squish them down they just get smaller in general. Not in length. If you could choose how tall or wide they are, and their weight size. Having more customisation like this would mean a lot to us who create stories. Also, a little idea; try to bring in animals. Maybe start off with household pets.
And the last thing, gems. Now it’s a cool idea to get a gem/diamond after reading one of episode’s stories. Although in every chapter there is a deal to get that good ending, or path for gems. And these ‘better paths’ aren’t necessarily better. Maybe you end up doing something more fun, or get to wear something better, but the cost of it is like 15-20 gems. And these deals of paths occur every chapter. Please shorten the, down to 5 at max. Maybe even try to not use them at all. I know that it’s for profit, to get people to buy more gems. Doing this will probably not do that. It’ll probably be the opposite effect. Please listen to these ideas.
!!123Max123 - My favourite app now my least
I used to love this app but now that you have to use 20-30 gems to pick the most reasonable choice is a terrible mistake by the app. Me and my friends all used to play Episode and only recommend stories t each other that are worth playing - which means making use choose between paying real money or not having a choice isn’t looking so good for you. Users do not receive enough gems to regularly or even rarely make those choices which can ruin the stories for the audience. Many people are not willing to pay for those gems which are reflected in your other reviews. There are also not enough passes given out often enough. I have noticed that you have recently retired the mobile creation on Episode which for me used to be a great way to attempt making my own stories to match up with some of the other amazing ones out there. The mobile creation was limited to only the Episode INK character and had extremely limited outfit choices (the outfits also had to be chosen all together rather than mixing and matching different seperate pieces). It would be great if you could create some way for users inexperienced with coding to make their own stories in Episode LIMELIGHT. It’s disappointing how my once favourite app has turned out and reading through the recent comments makes it clear to me that you have no value in what your users want or want improvements on. Try listening to them and I hope your app gets better :(
🍡Anime Lover🍡 - Stories are great, a few suggestions
I absolutely love this app. The way the stories are told and the amazing content. The ONE and ONLY thing that was extremely annoying for me (and probably many other players) was that you now have to do some sort of CODING to make your story! A little while ago in an older version of the game you could create the character movements and speech bubbles as well as their position and clothes with ease. What’s more, you now have to do the coding on a computer! I really want to make a story but I have no idea about coding and we only have one computer that barely even works!! I really dislike this update thing and I am begging you to change it. I believe I also talk for many many other players too.
A positive thing about this review is the thing where you can watch a video to have -30 min on your timer for your pass refill. The ONE thing I’m just going to say is it kind of annoys me is that sometimes it says there are “no more videos left” and you have to wait another hour. Other than that the stories are VERY VERY GOOD. One more thing I’m going to say is the gem choices impact the story very much but I can never seem to afford them.
Tysm if you read until the end. One extra thing: PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE GAME CREATORS CHANGE THESE THINGS I WOULD BE SO HAPPY IF YOU DID AND IT WOULD GET YOU ONE EXTRA FIVE STAR RATING TYSM TYSM TYSM :D
Dghdtivi - Great app but needs some changes.
Episode is actually a great app but as I said, it does need a few changes. Some stories give you options to change clothing, what to do, or accept an invitation to the raddest party in the town. But some of these options cost gems. A lot of gems to be precise. If you are playing a mystery story and trying to escape from the cops, to hitch a ride you need to spend gems. This may not sound like a bad thing but there are tons of stories like this. I have been playing a story and it has asked me for one of the gem costing options and I spent 20 gems. Later on I have to escape from the cops and to hitch a ride I need to spend another 20 gems. You are only given around 15 gems and I had already been given a choice to spend 15 gems in another story. Whats more is that, it isn’t easy to get gems. Yes, some stories do offer a gem after finishing 1 episode but you can’t always read these stories because you probably have run out of tickets to read stories. Which take a whole 2-3 hours just to refresh 2 tickets unless you spend real money to buy tickets. Tickets take too long to refresh and too many stories need gems to advance the story. Episode really needs to create a more efficient app. It is a fun app but as I have said, it needs a few changes within the app.
Actually Disappointed - What happened?
Like many people Episode was a classic game from when I was younger. It was fun, and sure waiting around for tickets was a pain, but no where near as much of a pain as the whole app is now. It’s become so exclusive and the whole “read x amount of chapters before unlocking the full game” is stupid. If you’re gonna do that at least provide some variety, because I know for a fact there are more stories than just romance on this app. And having those stories be “use gems to pick this choice” kind of stories is also bad because no one who first opens the app is going to have the 19 gems to pick a good option in a story they don’t like. In fact the whole concept of having to pay to select a choice is terrible because it means that there’s a TON of people who don’t get the full experience of a story and it isn’t fair. If you’re advertising as a free to play game it should BE a free to play game. Not a “you can play for free but you don’t actually get to choose” game because that defeats the entire purpose of this app. You really have something going with app, and it was always cool to see the lesser popular stories and go through them because those were my favourite. But with this new set up you have I am required to wait 20 hours before I can even LOOK for those stories. Surely if this game is able to afford every second tumblr ad it can afford to make the changes to improved
Bindi boo boo - Amazing. But a few annoying things
Overall the reading experience is amazing! I play episode on the Dailey and have never been disappointed with the amount of stories there are for all kinds of people with different preferences, wether is romance, drama, crime, horror, adventure and so much more. Now, I understand there have been a few comments about gems. If you read stories that episode have published themselves there will be gem choices. However if you read user stories (stories made by the public/episode community) there are no gems required. Therefor you will not need to spend money on gems. The first chapter of any story is a free pass which is great.
Moving on to my things that could be improved. I enjoy making my own stories (creating on my phone) but on the app there are limited emotions and outfits. On the computer you can make and customize your own outfit and there are heaps more outfits. Please find a way to bring both of these the outfits and the different emotions into the app. That’s pretty much all I have to say. Amazing game haven’t been disappointed. Good work!
😝😝🍫🍫 - Very angry 😤 😡😠😤😡😠😤😡😠😤
I like this app a lot yea I really do but from my perspective every app has a flaw like I don’t care that before you play a story you have to wait and watch two adds or that you need passes but the one thing that really pisses me off is the gems right now I was just reading a story and I couldn’t do certain things because of the gems which is soooooo stupid like it’s more like this is what you have to choose unless you have enough gems even though there is some stories that you don’t have to use gems but most of them you do in my opinion this isn’t really a choose your own story app it’s more like bug enough gems so we can make money app choose your own story more like here’s your choose unless you can buy gems absolutely hopeless so many people complain about gems just remove them no one likes them and you still make revenue off people buying passes and people buying the game anyway 😡😡😡😡😡😡🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄😡😡😡😡 also the authors are saying this is not your story this is Chloe’s story or bree’s story it’s so annoying cause it is called choose YOUR OWN story the authors shouldn’t be doing that it’s so unfair I’ve complained so many times also I have not gotten a reply at all I’ve complained like 10 times please bother to reply and or fix something god
NotAnAdult367 - Just amazing!
I have been playing episode for a while now it is super fun and all the stories are great this is a super addictive game and totally recommend it. But like all reviews there is always a down side.. I don’t like the fact that gems are really rare to get. I know how you have to watch the stories that have a thing that lets you earn a gem every episode. Some people can’t get gems for reasons like parents won’t allow or it’s a waste of money. I watched a video and this YouTuber (Yammy)she spent so much of her money on gems on episode. I myself am not allowed to get gems because of my parents (thanks mum..)another hung about gems, I hate in stories that are like do such and such for 29 gems like these story writes already get like ten million gems a day and I don’t think it’s fair like why can’t we have this thing where if we do the right thing we get 2 gems? I know it won’t happen but really 20 GEMS TO DO ONE THING I aM LiTeRALlY RaGInG!! And passes are probably the easiest thing to get even though you have to wait 2 hours for 2 passes.. but the questions that give you passes I find amazing. Over all... this game is great but JUST DONT MAKE US WASTE 20 MILLION GEMS FOR ONE CHOICE ITS A WASTE OF TIME LIKE ITS JUST A CHOICE!!!!!!!!
JxmmyJxmes - My Honest Opinion.
Hi all. I just wanna state this is my personal opinion. I see ads for this application on a daily basis almost. So one day I gave in and downloaded thinking ah what’s the worst it could be. After all it looks like a fun narrative that has endless options and outcomes. Boyyyyy I was wrong. Straight away I’m being pestered to pay for the “cool” or “interesting” stories that have been shown in such ads, I ignore and proceed to find the stories. And instantly. There were only 3 or so stories to choose from. So I frustratingly picked one knowing that without paying this is all I’d be able to play. Not even 5 minutes later (keep in mind this game does NOT have skipping features in between dialogue) I cannot “proceed” with that story as I have to pay. And as I am not going to pay to play a game that I had no interest in playing in the first place I uninstalled this. I would not recommend unless you want to spend money on a rather boring game as it turned out to be (the little that I played of it anyway). I have to give 2 stars. They have the idea there but definately not the right go about it.
I hope this gets listed in the recommended reviews as I believe this shouldn’t be a biased list of only “pro” reviews and should be an even list of against and for reviews.
Thankyou for reading this far.
ShoeSprinkle - I highly recommend it
This app is certainly the best “choose your own adventure” app out there, with a variety of stories, genres, and opportunities to create or read. A lot of people are upset about the gems in the game, however there are stories that don’t include gem spending (that I find are actually more interesting than ones that cost gems) and ways to get around spending gems (such as watching an as instead of spending them). Since the gems don’t bother me that much, and there is always a downside to a review, I must say that when creating a story that you want to release, it requires intense coding without much guidance to how to use it. It would be helpful if there were guides to work it out, even for the simplest of codes programmed on the app. However, compared to the rest of the positive features this app provides, this issue is close to insignificant and can be avoided by searching guides online (though it would be helpful for episode to provide them). I truly recommend this app if you want a place to create, choose and read - it is brilliant!
Dhgljsbdgkjbsdjsboihd - Amazing App with a few problems.
I really, really like this app. It’s really addiction but there are somethings I don’t like about it. First of all, unless you buy a ton of the diamond thingies, you are stuck doing all the boring activities. Situations come up now and again when you have the choice to do some thing exciting, but you can only go through with it it you spend up to 30 diamonds on it. This usually means your stuck doing the boring actives instead of enjoying it properly. I understand that free apps like this need to find an income some how, but by in creasing the amount of diamonds you get when you finish a chapter and decreasing the amount you have to pay, the game would be more enjoyable. Another thing I find annoying is that to move to the next chapter, you have to pay tickets. This is really annoying because whenever you finish a chapter, it usually ends on a cliffhanger. I’m saying that this is a bad thing, but then, to go into the next chapter you have to pay tickets. You can either buy or wait for the tickets regenerate. This usually takes about three or 4 hours. This app is really good, but if these things were cleared up it would be a lot better.
Anonymous 987646826201373826 - OUTFITS, BACKGROUNDS, EMOTIONS, ACTIONS
I love this app so much! Personally its my escape from reality and a great way to be creative and share and create stories. But i have a few issues id like to bring up.
Emotions, backgrounds, clothing and so on why is it all available on episode interactive but not on the mobile app? I don't think it's fair. Not everyone has access or can afford computers and so on. While you can go onto episode interactive on a mobile phone, it doesn't exactly work and its disappointing for so many users that we don't have the opportunity to actually pick clothing and create outfits , we don't have many options for backgrounds and we don't have many options for our characters actions or emotions, its disappointing. Im sure I'm not the only user of the mobile app that feels this way. This is so many people's way of escaping reality of expressing themselves, being creative! Please, please, please take this into consideration! This would improve the mobile app so much as the majority of us use the mobile app! Please add more backgrounds, give us the opportunity to select out of the clothing options and create our own outfits and give us more options for our characters actions and emotions!!
PandaStarz - Best interactive story app
☁️ After episode, I’ve seen so many other apps just like it but changed in style, stories and etc. But episode was the first one ever (i think) and it still is for me, such good stories from the community, amazing clothing artwork, avatar customisation, fanmail, creating your own stories and sharing it with everyone, the layout... you can put recommendations on your profile for others to consider what you personally love.. these are what makes episode unique and the best. ☁️
Maybe i’m biased because it was the first interactive story app 🐨. Because I use to play episode when I didn’t really like how to males looked but the girls were fine. Those times where you can skip ads because there was an X at the start. Those other times when you leave episode and come back to it and have 400 passes because they did not limit the amount you get (rip :( ) when episode didn’t decide to have you read 3 chapters to get another story when you start abnew account or that you’re new (which I hate). i have seen the journey of episode growing and it’s just so special to me and I do support them so much. They’ve worked so hard and gained popularity in the industry. Thank you for creating this masterpiece 💖
❗️⚠️ ⚠️ ⚠️❗️
But please.. fix the favourites tab of the stories we favourited because i have to tap “see all” to read the stories and it’s getting annoying. It has been like this for a while now (not this bad before though).
santa mtfkn clause - My Review (kind off bad)
This app is good in many ways. But like all things it also has its downsides. Most stories written are absolutely amazing (I especially love he romance section). The customisation and overall storyline is entertaining. But there is a problem. The passes. A few months ago, I upgraded my phone. I managed to back everything up just as it was with much ease. It was done and back to normal in a day. It saved absolutely everything. School started and I didn’t have time to play episode. For about a month and a half I didn’t play. A couple weeks ago I opened the app to see that there were many new stories (YAY), and the stories I had saved and begun had been saved at the exact spot I had ended them. Everything was identical to what it was, except my passes. I had over 30 passes on my episode and when I started playing again I had only one. This made me quite upset as I had gained those passes. Loosing my passes isn’t quite the problem here (although very annoying), it is the fact that I (and other episode users) have to wait 3 hrs 25 mins for a pass. Either shorten the time you have to wait for a pass or make readers watch an add to receive a pass. I have never seen anything like this. I hope you take my comment into consideration.
lOL50456😋 - Great ideas behind it but....
I love episode but for 1 ticket you have to wait THREE HOURS?!?! I find this more than slightly off putting especially since I don't want/can't spend money on an app. I do understand that you have to make a profit but 3 hours to play one 5-10 minute chapter? I find that ridiculous. I suggest making it maybe 30 minutes instead of 3 hours.
Then the gems.... How many stories I have played that for the only reasonable choice or the choice that allows you to get close to a person or save someone costs a huge amount of gems. I don't think that KISSING someone should cost money. Like that is so freaking dumb. Maybe if the character is shopping for like a special outfit it can cost something but wearing an outfit that you ALREADY OWN? Again really stupid. Yeah at the end of most chapters you get 1 gem but every chapter you have like five choice that dost at least 15 gems.I have gotten no where and have had to make really cruel choices in some of my games because I don't have enough.
I strongly suggest you consider some of my ideas and others because from looking through these reviews everyone feels similarly to me.
tgilb39 - I love this game but...
I love this game and have been paying it for years. It is the best interactive reading and choices app I have ever had. It has great animations, heaps of stories and some authors put free choices which I love. When I first got this game it had a feature where you could easily just create your own story and not having to publish it. Now you have to create stories on a laptops or computers using coding which is much harder to do and not everyone has access to a computer. The old version of create story mode was easy to use you. Just simple make the characters you want, pick from the number of different backgrounds, type the want to say and use the many animations. Do this many times to create a story it was as simple as that anyone could do it, now it’s complex coding that people can’t all do. This game is so amazing and highly recommend but the only thing it needs to make it a five star is put that easy creation of stories back. BRING IT BACK PLEASE. I’m not the only one who things this way either listen to us please. Thanks for the amazing game though.
Spaghettoreo - A Shortfall
Despite it’s great story creation and character animations, I’ve felt dissatisfied with a handful of things in the app. Firstly, with a quite below average rewards system, people like me (without access to purchasing diamonds) cannot purchase premium choices in stories, no matter how little those premium choices make to the storyline. Secondly, a story offering premium choices without a diamond reward for every chapter read really turns me away from reading as, in mentioned above, I have no way of purchasing diamonds to purchase premium choices as I have been locked out of money purchases through my Apple devices (thanks Apple). Third and finally, many of the stories (including ones with premium choices) have predictable storylines, predictable upcoming premium choices, a plateau of emotional intensity through love interest scenes, action scenes etc. and doesn’t do the app justice in helping engage the customers, especially with overlapping plot points in similar genres. At this point, I’m not bothered if I read anything more from the app or not. I’ve nothing to gain or lose and nothing to enjoy in continuing to use it. Maybe I’ll come back to it if a better reward system is introduced.
ccalvani - Episode on my iPad
On my iPad I have episode, and I’ve had this iPad for about 2 years and episode has been on there for the 2 years and I had read about twenty stories and had fifteen more that I had to continue on and one day about a month ago ALL of my stories were gone ALL the ones I had to continue were gone. I was about to finish the watchers, I thought mabey it’s just a mistake?, so I turned off my iPad for about one hour and got back on the game, it was still the same so I left it one night and got back on it the next day and IT STILL was the same from the start, and I’ve had to do all my stories again ( I forgot to mention I still have all my diamonds) so I started with the watchers when I used up all of my tickets I turned it off and got back on it that night, BUT it had restarted all over again from the very beginning! and now I can’t finish off the stories because every time I try to read another story then turn it off for the night it just starts again. So please is there anything you can do so I can have all my stories back please. But other than that is is the best app in my phone.
Sheaallaann - Great gane, and i love it but things beed improvement
I’m seriously in-love with this game, the stories created are just so engaging and the fact you can choose what you like not just a list of things to do. But i would like to see inprovements, i’m not saying that this game is bad but i just think this would make it even better. I would suggest in having less of you need a ticket to continue, or you need this many diamonds for this.. oh wait im going to give you one after you finish this chapter so you cant do this until you finish... I just find it quite frustrating when these qualities come in to play. So prehaps remove the feature of tickets or at least give us more then 2... and maybe even add more ways to achieve diamonds or for it to be more common to get more then one, because at this point in the game im grinding for diamonds despite the fact that i cannot afford to buy them for money. Yet i understand you have to make something from this so these are only suggestions and what i think would make this game so much better.
cami999888765445434 - Diamond problem
This app is amazing i love the stories and all the romance but as alot of people have said about this app is the diamonds please shorten the diamonds to atleast 5 because we miss so many good oppurtunities no good dresses, no hooking up with nice people or going on a nice date i know its for profit but no one wants to spend money on diamonds there should be a way to get them for free like watch an ad or something because getting only one diamond after each chapter isnt enough when you need 20 for one opportunity its not fair like even if we got 20 diamonds for completing a bunch of chapters you'll spend it on one opportunity then your back to square one waiting till you get more we miss too many good opportunities the characters that we talk to buy us stuff or dress us up then when you get a choice its "wear this cool dress and impress whoever" for 20 diamonds or for free its sweatpants like are you serious atleast put something decent like a cheap dress like whos going to rock up at a nightclub in sweatpants and a singlet like come on shorten the diamonds or get rid of them otherwise watch your player numbers drop!!
MORE CLOTHES PERSON - All Background hair etc!
I love this game but it would be almost perfect if there were some changes. I would love to be able to use all of the hair,backgrounds,emotions etc!
I don’t think it’s fair you can only use it on episode interactive, also on more of the popular stories please make the prices to pick choices cheaper!!! It’s very annoying how expensive they are and I think with these changes that it would be super awesome for you to do so, please listen to this advice cause I have wrote multiple reviews about this topic and nothing has changed since 😕. It would be 👍✅ if you would please change the app by doing so, when I was changing my character on the profile there was all of the backgrounds and I got really excited for the create section cause I thought that changed as well...
Please change it and I’m sure there are more people who feel this way also,
heyitschez - Good and bad
This app can be really pay to win with the “diamond choices”. However there are free versions of stories which are well written and there a lot of talented writers on this app. The diamond stories are advertised a lot almost forcing you to play them and leads to stories where you are forced to make the “bad choices” if you don’t have diamonds, which you can earn for free by reading lots of chapters of the diamond stories or buying them for unreasonable prices. I don’t mean to sound like a freeloader but when it leads to bad choices that can make young girls or teenagers feel annoyed or insecure about the story they’re reading there’s a problem.
Another problem is the ads. I don’t mind the ads, but some of the ads you literally cannot click off and glitch the whole app. An example is one of the demo games, there is no cross button and you have to reset the app and watch another two ads to read your story. The only bypass for ads in this is to buy a bypass that isn’t even permanent. Another issue is there was once a very erotic ad displayed on an app young girls play.
JayBird2007 - Acquiring the Gems
Episode is an incredibly fun and interesting game. I love the way you can customise the characters, choose their names. So far, I have only come across is how difficult it is to get gems. I don’t particularly want to spend money to get gems in a game. To me, that’s kind of pointless. I do, however that paying for things in the game is the way that the company pays their engineers, but it would be nice if you make it a feature to watch a short add to get, 5 gems. Just a small amount of gems like that. I know that you could get old his in the premium version or something, but I’ve only had the app for a day and I’m not sure if I want to pay to get a couple adds.
All I’m asking is that we can watch an add to receive gems, and it’s a daily thing. It would make this game so much easier to play. I have had this game for a full day now and only have four gems. I need more than fifteen gems to do anything interesting in the stories. I haven’t spent my gems on anything at all because nothing I’ve come across is worth half a gem.
Please just upgrade the game.
mswhtrdccxwwqi - Episode Review
I really enjoy episode and I’ve had the app for about a year now. I find that it’s not only fun but a great way to pass time. I also love the way you let people get creative and make their own stories which is one of the things I love most about episode. Some ways I think this app could be improved is if you give out two diamonds for each episode you complete or if you don’t have to spend as many diamonds for special choices or outfits. This is because I find myself, and many people I know not enjoying the story because you have to start other stories to collect more diamonds from before you continue and you lose interest in the original story you were reading. I also think that you could bring out some more stories that are a little more original because the last few stories I’ve read have been quite similar. Overall I really love episode and if you took some of these ideas into consideration I really think that episode could be even better!
Paramore_rock101 - Great app but still not perfect
I've been using this apps for years now and have seen many improvements since then, such as getting 5 passes instead of 2 in the allotted time, which is now much better, but the app still has a way to go.
The gem situation has improved but not nearly enough, they're still expensive and you have to use to many on an option. For example when there's a clothing option they want 20 gems but want the same for a a larger part of the story. I would spend more gems if it was reasonable, I would happily send 5 on a clothing option and then 20 on an important part of the story, it feels more reasonable.
Plus without gems the main stories aren't fun, which I get is the point of gems but I'm already sitting through 1 and a half minutes of ads, so I know you're getting money anyway.!
I get the need to make money but I think there's better ways around it and then this app could be perfect. I seriously love this app but I find myself disappointed at times.
whycantiaddthisreview - Disappointed
I used to play this game so much, it was such a great app, just re-downloaded and you have to read stories to unlock more stories and then you need to complete 6 stories before unlocking all of them. It takes for ever to get the passes and I’m not gonna pay for them the amount of passes and time you would need to use to unlock all stories. Honestly not worth it. So disappointed in this game. If it was the way it used to be I might actually spend money on it if needed or for fun.
I have an idea that can help improve the game!
You guys should have mini games and achievements and the prizes should be gems! To the point where it’s still fair to the players. But still have to option to buy if you want more then what’s given. Or add some ads or something so you still make a profit and the gamers still have fun. And have the option to collect gems by watching ads! Also you should make the passes more then what there is. Like at least 6-10 and then wait for more!
Gemini745 - WHY THE GEMS!!??🤬🤬🤯
This is a GREAT gam but the gems RUIN it. I was playing the Cameron Dallas story and he guilted be into wearing a dress he bought me and he was like “I got u a
dress, rlly hope u can wear it u would be so disappointed if u didn’t” 😔😔 and the the dress ended up costing something like 25 gems!!! 💎 this really annoys me and your game could b incredible if they weren’t there. It’s not like u need to make something achievable in the game cuz that’s not the purpose. It really ruins the game if there r gems so plz just get rid of them. In real life there would not need to be money paid to make a choice of clothing u already own. Also the adds are quite annoying and they glitch a lot. I once had to watch 6 adds before an episode and didn’t even get to read it! Others than these two MASSIVE 🦕🐋🐘 issues that could be easily fixed, this game is awesome. The stories are great and I love how almost every story lets u customise urself. This - overall - is a good game but some changes need to be made. Sincerely a person.
røsaaaaaa - Needs Improvements
It’s a really good app where you have the option of fantasising about your deepest desires and experiencing stories in first person, however... their’s some elements in this app that it should work on to further satisfy gamers such as myself.
For instance, for every chapter you finish in a story you get rewarded 1 gem. However, in some stories, there’s times where there are golden options available but costs like 25+ gems, and you could have up to 5 golden options in the one chapter! So the ratio of that is unfair and we’d either have to go out of way to purchase gems or even play other episodes to be rewarded one gem after finishing that chapter. Also, after completing a story on episode, if we wish to replay that whole story, we should be given free passes to replay all of it, not that we have to wait to for more passes to play it again.
Nevertheless, it’s overall a good app that gives you realism and makes readers more engaged to reading in an unconventional sort of way, but there’s areas that needs improvement.
Timothy Lins - Episode Review
I love this little game, but I have a couple issues that you could change and the game would just be even better. Could you please make it so you don’t have to spend so much diamonds to make the choice that you really want to make. Sometimes the outcome can be disappointing. Im currently on the 2 boys game with Tessa and Cole and Jay, you know it... whatever, Cole was in jail and I spent like 20 DIAMONDS to break him out only to find out that he was gonna get bailed out like an hour later. Please read this and just BTW could you possibly make some of the animations more flush and make more sense, because 2 girls started to touch another girl and stuff only to realise that they were putting on a dress for her. If you are one of the creators of this game, could you please respond to this just so I know. And hey, keep up the good work 😃 and if you can’t fix all of these things, could you possibly give the character more options to talk it’s kind of boring to just read and never talk. Bye
notyahgahl ;( - Great but annoying!!
I love this app tbh.. but it’s really annoying how they only give you one gem for every time you finish an episode. Like at least give us two. Because most of the episodes have 3 exclusive choices where you have to use more than 20 gems for each. And that’s only for 1 episode/chapter which means it’s about 60 gems you have to spend for one episode (if you want to). They need to put less than two exclusive choices in one episode. Because it costs a lot. And for the exclusive choices there’s usually three choices where you either keep what you don’t want/sorta destroy your relationship with someone, have to pay for something and have to pay for something else. Which means we don’t really have a choice and it’s really annoying.
They need to at least give us some chances so we actually make our own choices on the app. I’m loving this app but i might delete it soon because it’s not really fair. I get that episode wants to make money so we buy gems and passes but yeah that’s just not gonna roll.
Keishhb28 - Cost too much
I really enjoy episode but some of these stories are ridiculous with the amount of gems you need to continue with the story. One for example is the character will suggest to the person she likes to hang out, but to actually do it is 20 gems. If you can’t afford to actually buy them with real money you don’t get enough to choose these options often enough, which results in choosing the “sorry, maybe next time” option over and over again.
I agree with another review that maybe gems could be used for personalisation options such as certain hairstyles, clothes, colours, etc. but at this point instead of there being a basic option and a premium option it’s either play premium or don’t play the way you want.
I don’t think it’s fair to be asking 20 gems for EVERY decision either. If you have to pay gems for that I think there should be different costs based on choice level. Hanging out to study or going on a date should not cost the exact same as some of the riskier choices like sneaking in somewhere with the crush character, etc.
My_My Mya - I love it but...
This is one of my favourite apps and I use it nearly every day. somehow this app seems to pull me towards the dramas and the romances, the only thing is...
I have been writing my story recently and I’ve realised that the Mobil creation part of the app only has very limited options. I am very grateful at the fact that the app has added choices to the list of things we can do but I feel as if we should be able to do things like have more backgrounds and limelight features on our characters. I have also noticed that our clothing choices are very limited. For the clothing choices I think that we should have a lot and I mean a lot more options. I think we should be able to choose what top we want, what bottoms we want and what shoes we want. I have visited the website and created characters on there and I think that the character creation part of the Mobil creation should be more like that. But other than that great job on your success and I hope you can make some changes to make your app even more wonderful.
Dessa1468 - Needs more on create your own.
I'm not gonna go on about how great the game is (you already know how amazing it is) and just cut to the chase:
1) In create your own, it is so fun. Although, there is no hugging action, filming on phone, TALKING into a microphone, bowing, running, etc
2) More backgrounds? There are limited background options, making it hard for times like: Eating, there is no table or dining room. Fancy bathroom, only that messy, 3rd class one. Dressing room? Shopping but you can't really try anything on. Closet? More classrooms? I'm publishing stories but all the schools only teach science... More options on a work place/school area. Back yard, pool, front yard?
3) It would be amazing if we could make elderly people, adults, teens, children AND babies/toddlers! Different outfits and all, of course!
4) Having more than 20 characters in a story would be heaven, almost. 5 characters on the set at a time is NOT ENOUGH!
5) While playing other episode stories, we get offered many things as a choice but the only good choice is ALWAYS (and I mean EVERY TIME) at least 15-20 gems. Now, it is very hard to make gems, collect gems. We have to BUY the gems to continue playing the stories! This caused me to delete the game but then I missed the only GOOD thing, creating a story. So please, either make the choices 2-5 gems each or make it easier to collect gems! PLEASE
Thankyou for taking my thoughts into consideration. I bid you all a good day, bye.
snak3lov3r - Love Episode but Please Improve
Episode was an app I used to play all the time when I was younger - and I still go through phases of using the app on and off. But it is just SO HARD to play now unless you want to spend money to buy your way through it. It’s so unfair that you’re at a disadvantage if you don’t buy passes and gems - which quite frankly, ruin the story. It’s not really ‘choose your own story’ if you CANT choose the options you like because you need gems every. time. It’s also super hard to play because you can only hold 2 tickets and it takes hours to get them back? It’s such a shame because I’m sure you’d have so many more people engaging and playing if they could read and access their stories more often. Could you try and implement video incentives? Eg. giving users the option to watch a video to gain a pass? Or could you have incentives/mini games/awards to earn passes or gems? Or could you make other alternatives to the gem options so the story doesn’t suffer? I hope you value ALL your users and not just the ones that buy gems.
u w0t mate - okay
i enjoy EVERYTHING about this app. i love the stories, how u can create ur own character, the qna option, almost everything. but the gems and ads are a HUGE problem.
1. gems - some stories ask for too much gems and u only earn a bit from ur streak or u can earn 1 gem from reading stories that use gems, so i always avoid stories that use gems because i cannot afford to buy some more.
2. ads - this is a HUGE problem!! why should i watch 2x ads PER cHAPTER!! ur ads last 30-15 seconds so im wasting 4 minutes max from reading 4 chapters!! #lessads. however the option where u can watch ads to remove 30 minutes of waiting time for the tickets are a really good idea!!
here are some improvements:
1. allow people to comment on the story and show their ratings
2. 1 ad per chapter!! (none preferably 😂😂)
3. gems should be 5-10 pre choice!! OR allow a way to earn lots of gems, like more gems being earned from reading a story that uses gems, watch ads, from rating a story, etc.
4. allow authors to make announcements and allow readers to comment in them so that the author and readers can connect more
also side note, i see episode ads that have really cool options and wonder what story they are from and can never find them... fake advertising? please just put the name of the story in the end of the ad so that the author gets credit pls. smh
peckeremu - There are a few issues to be addressed
Lately I have been playing episodes and trying to create my own story’s but there are so many bugs that come with it that drive me crazy! For one sometimes you will spend all that time putting a story together with all the characters, leave the story and then come back the next day to find that all your characters are gone from the scenes! And they are no where to be found, so i tried to make a new character but after spending a load more time doing that when I tried to save the character the game tells me I am unable to save it to this server!!! And then I tried to create a new story the exact same thing happened!! So I am at a loss and I’m giving it 2 stars for the amount of stuffing around this game makes us do and we still don’t get the outcome that we were trying to achieve!
Jessleigh13 - Exceptional! Nothing else like it.
The best feature of Episode is Limelight, being able to customise everything as an Author, being able to write your own story, to be able to make choices as a reader, being able to have the readers be able to customise characters & just looks great. I love the music & all the sounds made. No other app that is a game & a book made visual is anything like it & they just don’t compare to Episode. I do hope Episode continue to keep making it better in every way possible, that there’s more choices of clothes, hairstyles, music & backgrounds. There’s only one fault with Episode, & that is that only Episode made stories have gems as a reward for reading. I think it should be for all stories. As not everyone can spend there money on gems to have better choices in said Episode made stories. Also, they need to reconsider the new terms & conditions as they have become too restricted.
Lara Green - Two things that I’d personally like
1- I’d say this is more Important than two. Limelight: I’d give episode and automatic 5 star rating if you could make Limelight stories on mobile. I don’t get why you can’t. It’s almost the same as Computer, and plus I’m not the only one. I’m sure many more people want limelight on Mobile.
2- I understand that it’s only fair if you have to pay your diamonds for some things. But it’s become a little to much. It gives you two options for outfits normally, there’s the really amazing one, and the ok one. The amazing one is always 20-40 diamonds and the plain/ok one is free. And situations, having a ‘romantic’ night out, it’s always costing diamonds, or you can just say no. I’m just going to say this in a, more, clear way. We shouldn’t be charged diamonds for every outfit we wear and every move we make.
Apart from this I’d say episode is really fun, and interesting. There’s always a story for your specific taste too.
Emalee120691 - Great game minus the adverts & asking of money
All in all this game is entertaining, it’s similar to the early sims game but on a story. The downfall to this app is the constant need to have 20 gems to either wear a particular outfit (which you didn’t choose, the game did) or pay 20 gems to (go to a guys house). To buy the 20 gems isn’t cheap either. I think it was $8.99 for 50 of them & since the game asks you to spend 20 gems at a time it spends your $8.99 in less then 1 chapter. Each chapter goes for about 10 minutes then you have 5 minutes of adverts you can’t skip past unless you pay the game 2 or 4 gems. This is your own personal real money and let’s face it, most young people cannot afford this. You can go to the shops and buy a physical PlayStation 4 game for $30 and never pay a cent to it again, so how is it realistic a person spend over $30,$40 or $50 on this game? It would be very easy for one 2 which isn’t fair to anyone that plays the game.
Great game but no value for money.
#sk8life - PLEASE
Ugh it is soooo annoying when you get to a part if the story when you have to spend gems to get the premium choice…my only problem with this is that some people can’t afford to pay for gems all the time and when your spending 20 gems 💎 per premium choice they go pretty fast I mean I know you have to make money and stuff but maybe for some of them it could be you have to watch a vid or spend maybe 10 gems and you have a choice and also I think you should earn 2 or 3 gems after watching a single episode not one hem, it’s just not fun for the people (not me) that can’t afford gems…all I want is for the people who do not have much money to have a say (I’m 13 and I don’t get pocket money) please take this into account… it would make it a lot more fun for the people who don’t have much money 💵
-love from jade 🥺😔🥺😔🥺
Madz_Rayes - Amazing App! Just a few things...
Hi there! I’m in love with the app and I just wanted to say how great it is! I love how there are so many great episodes to share and read over. I would also just like to address something I thought would help me and many other people. I was wondering if the creator/s of Episode could maybe add the option on the app to do Limelight. I know this sorta frustrates me, because I would love to find other ways of creating episodes and stories. I have tried many times online to do a Limelight but it is just so confusing and pretty challenging. I know I and many many others would appreciate this if the creator/s could add Limelight editing onto the app. Other than that I am forever endlessly in love with Episode!! I think the creator/s has/have done an amazing job! Thank you for making an app I’m in love with.
Awesomene00 - DO NOT! Unless
Now I love this game!, but these gems are ridiculous. You get only 1! Only 1, not 5 or 8 just 1 gem every chapter, and don’t get me started on the tickets you need to read chapters... you got to wait almost 4hours for only 2 measly tickets, it’s ridiculous. But not only that, you get guilted and disappointed everywhere through out the storys, because you dont have the gems. This game is all about the money. I love this game but you are honestly losing people by the minute because they either can’t buy the gems or when they have the right amount you use it then like a few questions later you get asked again. It’s almost 30gems each time so really you don’t get to pick your own story unless you, yourself are rich and can blow money on gems continually through out every book, every chapter. So sorry no I fell in love with this game but because of this I have to throw it away ............ DO NOT get this game unless you are willing to be disappointed. Or you are rich. Unless update and fixed this game is nothing more than a scheme for your money.
Kasey unknown - Great....but needs improvements!!
The app its self is great, but the fact you have to wait hours for a limited amount of passes is kinda stupid!! At least increase the passes or decrease the time wait!! I’ve also notice that the feature which allowed you to read episodes own stories with unlimited passes is gone.... that was a really cool thing as when you didn’t have any passes you could read some “official” ones. Is it worth downloading? Yes it’s a great app and fun just annoying with the wait of passes.
Also the gems sometimes is ridiculous, how you have options to select something but can’t cause you don’t have enough gems and the only way to get them is to buy or play the spin wheel thing which also cost passes. If those were fixed this app would be a 5/5. The app has so much potential to be the best if only those things weren’t an issue!!!
hunter__827 - Cons of the new update
I used to play so much when I was younger, it was my childhood games. I spent so much time playing this and reading. I got to experience the fun of stories and bring my mind to another world. I have recently starting thinking “I should start using episode more” but I was very disappointed when I came on. Before the new update there was so many stories I read, for free. I understand that episode needs to make their money but isn’t the main idea for episode is for entertainment and for people to experience the fun of these stories? So why limit it? I do not agree having readers reading the first few chapters of a book they might not be interested in just to unlock others. Maybe instead of the gems being used for unlocking new chapters maybe they can be used for special styles to characters? I just hope episode takes this to consideration. This is no hate just giving my opinion to help episode improve.
JOHANNA💕❤️ - EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TOPIC!
Hi, I would just like to say I love your game and how addicting it is and I’m sure many others agree. I just have a few questions 1. Why do we have to use gems to wear outfits, 2. I’m sure on behalf of many others I would just love to know why on the iPad we can’t do options for the readers and move the camera I don’t have access to any other device and this is a way here I love expressing my creativity along with getting really excited about writing stories and I want people to find them interesting, PLEASE,PLEASE PLEASE try and fix that, maybe even for my and many others Christmas preset 😂💕 it would mean the world! Oh and Please try and get back to me ASAP ! No matter what the answer is ! kindest regards Johanna 💕💕😘 ps your games is an 20star rating but you would get a ton extra rating for adding that stuff!
Ella. N - Amazing
This game is so much fun and it’s so interesting however I really wish that not all of the pretty outfits or big decisions cost diamonds because I don’t have any and I also wish that it wasn’t like a 3 hour wait for more passes because I just want to keep playing it. Eventually I got sick of not wearing pretty dresses or making big decisions because I didn’t have diamonds so I bought a pack of 60 diamonds for $7.99 and there was a decision that I spent 15 diamonds on but then my internet stopped working so I had to reset it and when I went back on to the game it went back to the part I was up to before I spent my diamonds however the diamonds were taken from me and instead of paying 15 diamonds I ended up paying 30 so I would like my diamonds back please. Other than that this is so much fun and my new favorite game. (P.s does anybody know how to file a complaint)
carlwashere2018 - Annoying
I love reading the episode story’s but sometimes I just get annoyed of how we have to use gems like when I don’t have enough it doesn’t make me feel connected or my decision to the branches, I wanna do this I wanna do that but I can’t how is it a story about your character when your not able to do things you want? Not everyone has money to buy things online and I know that’s not your problem but at least give us 50 gems a day going on, another thing that annoys me is trying to make a story when I’m adding branches and characters doing my own thing, I keep going out of the app and when I’m able to do it my characters are gone apparently you can only do it on laptops it just lets me down that the app has so much control over your decisions I know it’s just an app but sometimes people feel connected to it could you at least make it available for people with iOS devices to make story’s and animations
Hermione granger in the flesh - Corporate!!!
There are SO many reviews with reoccurring issues and still it hasn’t been updated? The bugs from the recent update are so terrible! You can’t even open like 20% of the options. Definitely miss the good old days of being able to create my own story on my phone without all the technical aspects and coding. The stories YOU have like “verified” most of them are good like actually fun to read, but the gem thing !! Why does one outfit cost 26 gems? I get you want money but put this is extreme. You want money? Provide more tickets so people have to watch more ads. By making 3 hour renewal you are PUSHING people into the hands of your competitors. If you want to get more successful, LISTEN! The consumers are TELLING YOU what the issue is and what they need to get it fixed. Focus on finding other ways to get money instead of ripping everyone off ESPECIALLY if your target demographic is 12+ maybe you should change the age to 14+ but that’s on you. You have reviews, work on them.
Meh&Games - Eh..Could use A LOT of improvement
Well, I’m not one to talk but.. When I first played this, I thought we get to ACTUALLY choose what we wanted to do, not just tap an option. That’s just minor. Something else that bugged me is that this app NEVER mentioned anything about passes, like- SERIOUSLY? How is it fair that our game time is only limited?! And another thing is — Gems. I’m only new to this game and I DESPISE the idea of using gems for better options JUST FOR MONEY. You could do anything but gems! Maybe a VIP, Extra games, picking outfits in-game, mixing and matching your own outfits. All those options and you chose LIMITING THE TIME YOU CAN PLAY, and forced to pick THE BAD OPTION BECAUSE YOU DON’T HAVE GEMS!
Overall this game is pretty good. I like how you’ve included other topics other than romance. The storyline in your stories are somewhat creative! I’m envious of the fact you draw so good, and you can draw with that loop-animation thing. This game just needs to be fixed a bit ❤️

byrnsey5 - You should make another app for us to create a story
I love the app but I want you to allow to make episodes on the mobile app or make another app to create an episode. And allow us to make out own outfits
Tiena87 - not worth it
not even worth it. paying money just to make better choices in the story is a rip off. i just uninstalled the app cuz of this. i can find other apps that dont require money. goodbye
Mardie-Kate - Keep reading
This app is great if you are looking for something light to read and to take your mind off things for a sec. But yes some stories demand to spend gems or you are left with choices that are obviously wrong, but some are enjoyable whitout having to spend a dime.
rawtbird - Episode
I used to love episode but now when our I try to do a story the ads don't work. After some of the ads, it just turns write and you can do nothing. I ALWAYS have to keep do the ads and it never works 😡😭😡😭😭ALSO the update I got doesn't work because I'm making a story and when i go to my characters it glitches out
123456789Midget987654321 - This app literally records you
Try this yourself. Before opening the app, make sure it’s at full volume. Put the speaker up to your ear and you’ll notice there’s no sound coming out. When you open the app then put the speaker to your ear, you’ll hear static. Don’t trust this app and don’t use it.
Arakumaru - Not a fun or a good game
The game isn't great. It advertises itself as a choices game but it's not.
On some occasions, certain "choices" are locked unless you use diamonds to choose them. This usually happens when there are two choices, with one very favourable and the other not at all.
Unfortunately, diamonds need to bought with real money.
So unless you're willing to cash out on a dumb little choices game, you'll be making less favourable choices throughout the game.
This is a "pay to choose" game.
Not fun at all.
bkarmstr - Meh
Stories are great but there are too many ads, you have to spend way too much money way too often, and you either get the choice of something great for $$ or the worst possible answer - there's no other option.
episoderocks - Love episode
I love the app but when do you think you will update the demi lovato series I can't wait to see the next episode 😊😊🤔🤔
Daphlipside - Love it!!!
I have been reading episodes for almost a year I think and I've never been disappointed with it :) I of coarse only read the completed stories too so I don't have to wait ;) and sometimes it sucks to run out of passes so quickly but with the right stories that have longer chapters it works out fine :) I love this app!!!
Hailey_Camp - Over Priced
Dear Episode, The app itself is fantasic. Can’t get enough! My problem is that the gems and passes are overpriced and the target consumers are young girls. They can’t pay what your asking. They could go and steal a debit card from their parents to see what happens next. Thats not something we should be teaching. Pay to play. Maybe watch an add for gems or passes. You would still make money. Sorry for being an SJW.
bumblebleeep - The new update
It was good before the big update now... we can’t make our own stories we can’t pick what category we like. It was better before it didn’t need any fixing. Please put it back how it was :)
sab15ss - Episode
I miss the old episode where it was easier to create your own story can we have it back plz🙂
headphone budd - broken
i've been playing this app for 2 years or so so i have a lot of stories saved up. now no matter what i do there is an error with the episode servers. i don't want to delete the app because of my progress. i have run into this problem multiple times.
Roses - It's so so, don't buy gems though!
The ads are really annoying since they play twice. Sometimes, the stories have extremely short chapters so have to endure more ads! Also, sometimes the "better" choice requires you to pay which sucks, and sometimes if you have enough gems to chose the "better" option it's not even worth it at the end. So for the gems, don't waste your money of them (unless you want to). If not the stories are okay, some are quite cheesy, while others are funny and interesting.
Manda.xo.xo - Waste
You can’t even play the game properly without spending money. You either pay money for diamonds or you get dumb choices. Such a waste of a download.
Lluvia Salvatore - Help!! Fix please
Can we not make our own story on mobile no more?
Reester658666786 - Just a question..
My mom says if there is one for kids I can have she doesn’t approve of some of the things that are on this app.. so if you could think you could make a kids one? I think a lot more people would play, also here’s an idea.. I see a lot of people complaining about prices what if it goes off another choice so you don’t have to spend money! You could still have tickets, so you will still get profit but people can be happy and play the same! Thanks for listening!
theymademe3456 - 1 thing I don’t like
I don’t like how it takes so long to get tickets
loulouvez - Fix this
I can’t believe you took off the create stories on device I loved it now you ruined it take it back episode interactive is way to complicated!
Deirdra safo-oppong - DSO
We should be able to replay a whole episode in addition to being able to replay a whole story.
AmazingKittena - Guidelines
I have used Episode for 2 years, now that I’ve read the new guidelines makes me not want to use it anymore. No violence and showing alcohol/drug abuse etc. seems stupid as that is apart of making a story good and also there is just as much older readers as younger readers who want an enjoyable story. If you want an app with no violence alcohol/drug abuse etc. make a separate app or something like where you ask them their age and parents can control what they read and younger readers can only access story’s suitable for them!
Anonymous 15635 - Okay, but the new update isn’t great.
i hate how you need to unlock stories to have full access, and how all the best options in these stories are locked and you need 20 diamonds for most. huge rip off. please make episode go back to how it was before. i’m not impressed.
UPDATE: i’ve finally unlocked all the content and all of a sudden the mobile creator is gone? that was the reason i downloaded this app. another huge disappointment :(
L.k!!!!! - Try to fix this
I feel like u need to put a video in their or something to get more diamonds and tickets because young players are playing this game and most of us don’t have money then it will frustrate us and we’ll soon stop playing
Blackness and Sunlight - Broken!
I write on the mobile creation... and now all of my characters are gone! Even their dialogue! I’m quitting this app unless it can be fixed! Otherwise, this app is pretty cool!
lolsuphai - Create Your Own Outfits On Mobile!!!
Episode is really great on mobile but the only thing is that you should be able to customize your own clothes like how you can online. It is a little difficult to make a story online and way easier on mobile. But the outfits are already picked out for us and get boring after a while you can create your own outfits that are appealing to everyone. please put this idea into action!!
Aberdeen68 - Fun
It is fun but pull like to see a little less more gems needed to pick outfits...makes you choose what you really don’t want. Some endings are like lunchbag let down.
Kiera & Whisper💖!!!! - Awesome and Cool!!!!
This app is so awesome I love it a lot!!!!!😊😍😋

pee pee poo poo
dreamycastle - Disappointed
I used to love episode; it was my favourite game by far. But now since redownlaoding it, I’ve discovered that every single good choice that comes along costs diamonds. And I mean EVERY good choice. It never used to be like that. It’s impossible to actually enjoy the game without spending money. And that’s disappointing cause it never used to be this bad. Wish I could have the old episode back:(
IssaKepera - I got banned
I woke up one day and I was randomly banned. I promise I didn’t do anything and I still got banned. 👎🏾😠
rumple-foreskin - It keeps restarting
Hey so I know it isn’t supposed to do this.
Every time I close down the app, each story resets itself from the beginning, but otherwise the app is working fine.
How can I fix this?
little red lacy - Hi
As much as I love the game I think the creators should put in more than a few passes at a time and I also think it’s kinda silly to be waiting 3 hours 20 minuites and 12 seconds. But if you are going to have any passes they’re should be more or you should have infinity passes.
But over all I love the game!
oli.booi - so manipulative...
this game is so incredibly manipulative.. like i just want to make one good choice and it baits you in so far.. then its like lol nope to enjoy the game at all you gotta pay!! some of the options really make me feel like a bad person and i dont like it.. please change this or make the gems easier to obtain.. its so stupid..
cookiecookie1243Blockhead - Misunderstanding
The game has really good stories, very fun to read, everyone who is mad that you have to pay for choices- realize that the developers of Episode isn’t the one making the stories, people who installed the app is. It’s not there fault! Other from that, it would be great if you could add back making stories on mobile.
enjoybbcuzrighthonestreviews - Alright i recommend if ur into corny romance
It’s pretty good although the stories are quite tacky and it takes about 4 hours for 2-3 tickets
Bigway80 - Review
I just want to be able to do more episodes having only two tickets sucks:(
im super mad please work - YALL NEED TA LET MOBILE PEEPS MAKE STORYS TOO!!
The people on mobile should be able to create story’s! I had so many story’s back then on my phone and y’all just had to take em away! 🤦🏽♀️
Lila gratch - Passes & Gems
Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s a great app, I love it! But, I hate waiting 3 and a half hours for my passes to refill. I don’t mind watching the ads to reduce the time by 30 minutes, but eventually there will be no more ads to watch, and I’m back to waiting.
I’m not a big fan of the gem system either. All of the “Featured” stories have gem choices, and you can’t choose the obviously favourable choices unless you have gems.
Apart from those two things, though, this is overall a great app! Would definitely recommend.
Taniaye - Great......?
Episode is rlly fun and interesting but it takes sooooooo long. 3 hrs for only 2 tickets, could you guys maybe make it so like 30 mins for 1 ticket or something like that but make the limit like 5-10 tickets?
jdirmajosel - ❤️
i really like this app. but please stop making everything for diamonds
CuteGamer2008 - 😁
I really like this app but if you use all your tickets will you get some back the next day or..?
Bbg551 - It changed
Are used to have this app on my phone a while ago and I love the back then, you had multiple choices to choose from without having to use diamonds and you had multiple different outfits to choose from also without having to use diamonds. Now you have one choice that is free and all the other choices you have to use diamonds for, therefore you’re stuck with the crappy answer unless you want to use diamonds. Not enjoying this game as much as it’s not really a choice game.
ushejdidhnddkdjbrnddkdh - This game is too addictive
This game is way too addictive my daughter got on this game and bought 100’s of dollars for this game please consider that this game could stealer a life’s work of money. If you do read this creator please lower the gems things don't make this game so upsetting to me it’s like a casino and it takes and takes and takes and never gives
blackpuppyrosd - The gems
Like I don’t have gems and I don’t have the money for them and like I can’t do anything in stories because of it so I wish it was cheaper. Also where are the stories I see in the ads because I don’t see them
Original Jangsta - App is listening to you
This app is listening to you if u put the microphone up to your ear where the sound comes out you will hear typing this is so scary and i only JUST downloaded this I’m going to write another review when i look more into it
Ashmann Shergill - Trash at Fortnite
I hate this game,even though I didn’t download I hate it for the bad stuff that’s in the game. A 9 year old downloaded it for kissing. Ewwwwwww🤮🤢🤢🤢
tsey091 - Gems
i love this game but it’s so annoying when u want to do something interesting in an episode but it always costs so many gems
Sunshine#12345 - Episode
Episode is really fun!
The only thing I hate is that you have to pay for diamonds.
Then, in the story you need to pay for certain decisions and that really sucks. I do not really recommend Episode if you don’t want to pay for a game :(
idontwannapayonafreeapp - Good but
I love the concept of the app but, I hate that once I use my 3 tickets I have to wait three hours. I also don’t like that you barely collect diamonds so, you never have enough to do the fun stuff, which makes the game less fun.
Jessicasourwine - My wishes
Episode is a good game but, it frustrates me knowing I can only make my own story on the computer and when I try to use the computer to make a story it freezes my entire screen. It would be better if you could change it back to making a story on your model devise Instead of just computer

Pay up or Fail - All the bad options unless you pay
I really like the story ideas for this game, but honestly it’s so incredibly annoying when I want the character to make a good decision, but I CANT because if I want that, I would literally have to PAY FOR IT. That part of it honestly ruins the game so much. You should honestly just call this app, “Pay up or Fail” because you don’t even get the fun of making your own choices without CONSTANTLY having to pay for diamonds, which you NEVER have enough of in the first place. And if you ever do, it takes forever to get enough to make even one good decision. It’s ridiculous, repetitive, and super predictable. It’s like every single time something good happens or some good opportunity happens in the game it’s swiped away because your character suddenly doesn’t feel like it or something, because you declined the option of paying for some diamonds. This whole thing honestly makes me want to delete the app. If you actually want this to be a good app, stop milking people for their money on virtual diamonds that continuously ruin the path your character goes on. Until you fix that, you lost a user. And I’m sure people will get tired of this money milking app at some point unless you turn it around.
Kingofpr - Episode.
Episode is one of my favorite apps ever. You get to design your own character in most stories. Most people don’t like the gem stories because they want to do a choice they “have” to make but they don’t have 10 or 15 gems and they don’t wanna buy them. That’s ok just read a non gem story written by authors in the community. You get 4 passes every 2 hours or sometimes if your lucky every 30 minutes! After you use your 4 passes you might earn 1 or 2 passes or you can earn 1 or 2 gems and save them up if you really wanna read a gem story or if you wanna skip the ads. You can even make your own story on the computer. You can only publish the ones on the computer there are more options for clothing and other things on the computer. On mobile devices you can make a story but there are less choices and you can’t really do much on mobile when it comes to making story’s. Episode story’s are full of thrill and excitement, love and heartbreak. If you don’t like the mature themes on episode then read the stories that don’t have it. The authors warn you at the beginning of the story if there is mature content. Even if there is it’s not like bad bad. It’s just a few bad words. I would recommend episode to everyone!
Seait_10 - A few problems
I downloaded this app about two months ago. When I first got it, like any new app, I was very excited and started playing all the stories. However as I started really getting into the plots of the stories the whole gem situation got really annoying. Now I know other reviews have talked about this so I'm not going to go too in depth about it, but on top of what everyone has said, I think the purchasing of gems is insanely overpriced! You can only get 10 gems for $0.99, which may seem like a lot of gems, however most single options cost about 20 gems, which means you would have to pay TWO DOLLARS for just one option that only lasts a couple minutes. If you get this app I would recommend community stories so you don't have to deal with gems. Also I've found that community stories have fun customization of outfits, which you can't do in the regular stories and would cost gems. Another thing I wish this app incorporated was the effect of the decisions. Everyone knows that in Episode you can "choose your story", but I've noticed that even when you choose your option, it doesn't really effect your later game. I don't know, just an addition that I think would improve the game. Overall, though, I think Episode is the best storytelling game on the market and you should definitely consider downloading!
_Artisticat_ - A few flaws, but I love it!!
I don’t like the fact that I have to wait for what feels like an eternity to get passes, but that kind of sticks to the realism to the
fact that these are still “episodes”. In real life on tv, if there’s a cliffhanger, we still have to wait for what feels like an eternity before the next episode shows. I also am not too fond that there aren’t many diamonds received after an episode, and I really hate when there are two options: one that costs diamonds (aka the better choice in some cases) and the other that’s free but would let someone down, or make someone sad, or something like that, and I can’t afford the better choice. I do spend my diamonds every now and then, but I think we as the readers should obtain more after each episode that offers diamonds. To add on, it’s also really frustrating when the better choice is outrageously expensive. Overall, though, I think the pros outweigh the cons by a landslide, because the stories themselves are truly brilliant! I am frustrated about not having enough passes after each episode because of a cliffhanger, and I really want to know what happens next!! There are some amazing writers on episode. I haven’t found a story yet that I don’t like!!!
XxSisi_playzxX - This is an amazing game
This is honestly a great game being that I’m in quarantine it’s one of the main apps I use lol but I one I thing I’m suggesting is maybe we should be able to use our diamonds to buy tickets maybe just a suggest though but this is really a great game and the stories are so interesting and actually keep me entertained during this time of boredom 😂this is really not even a problem at all so don’t take this as a complaint but omg I have to wait 3 whole hours for another two tickets like omg but this is an amazing game I’ve had it for a whole 2 years now and I just have to say it’s honestly very addictive and entertaining another suggestion is maybe you should add bigger choices ! Like that affect how the story plays out like how the whole thing goes like changing the entire story type choices and also can you do a free way to earn diamonds because I was playing just today and I really wanted to confess to my loved but I didn’t have enough diamonds please have free ways to get diamonds like watching adds or have a wheel you can spin at least two or three times a day or even one is reasonable but please have different ways it would probably get you more ratings and people might emoji more !
Bribrini - Great App but..
I love episode and they even have themed months, for example “Pride Month”, they made episodes based on pride and i loved it! I just don’t like how when you try to make episodes on your phone, you can’t do much. I don’t have a computer so I would like to do it on my phone but it is hard and there isn’t much actions you can put. Also when stories created by Episode itself, you have to pay gems for the right choices but you have to end up picking the worst one because you don’t have enough of it is just too much. 20 gems for an outfit? Just for better dialogue? No thanks. And you only get one gem for playing those games. Its hard to save up a lot. In the end you are progressing with the story just not with better dialogue and choices but im sure it’s the same ending. I just wish we wouldn't have to pay so many gems for gold choices. But there are other amazing episodes that give a great experience so it’s best to check those out if you don’t want to spend gems. If there could be an update that helps with making stories on episode and the gems that would be great. Maybe make it like 5 gems for an outfit if you really don’t want to take that out. Overall it’s a good app. Thanks episode.
🥰😘😗😌☺️😝😜 - Great game but... (PLEASE READ)
Okay, I would be lying if I said I didn’t love this game! I love how in some stories that you can choose your love preference so it totally supports the lgbtq+ community, you get to customize your character, and there is so many genres to choose from! I just have two requests for this game and if you would take some time to read them I would really appreciate it. My first one is more emotions. So I know that there is the type of emotes that you would see in real life, but nothing really comes out of the mouth. Like when the character looks like he/she/they look like their gonna vomit, nothing ever comes out, and more foods!!! I would love to see more foods like ice cream and tacos and ramen with chopsticks!!! My last suggestion/request is diamonds. I love the diamonds and the premium choices, but in the stories I’ve read, all the options have been really pricey. Like 29 diamonds for only two advantages. If you aren’t gonna change the prices, then at least add a wheel that you can spin everyday to get diamonds for all the premium choices. I LOVE this game so so much and I’m a huge fan so if the developers responded I would be SO SO HAPPY!!!! I hope you take my suggestions into recommendation, I would really love a respond back from you. Thanks for reading! 😊
BattieSays - Read this review
So, about 2 years ago I got episode, I loved it! If it were two years ago, you would have gotten a 5 star review, but I stopped playing after about a year, which is when I got my new phone. Just a few months ago, I downloaded episode again, I expected it to be the same, well made stories to play through, creating stories via mobile, and just generally enjoying the app. Oh boy was I wrong, not only do you haft to do so many things to unlock every story when you first get it, the stories are still pretty good I guess, but what really upsets me, IS THAT YOU TOOK AWAY MY FAVORITE FEATURE, coming from someone who has never owned a computer in their life, I HATE WHEN THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN DO THINGS IS ON THE COMPUTER! And what about people that don’t own a computer either, and just want to create a good story? I liked that their wasn’t a specific device for story creating! You probably think it’s not a real problem that other people have, but seriously, my phone was gifted to me, and I can’t afford a computer, my friends have either broken computers or the same problem. If you read this, I thank you, because I really hope you take into consideration that this is not just a me problem, plus the mobile creations were cool, fun, quirky and simple. I might keep episode for some of the good stories, but I might delete it since those have went down hill too. Thank you for reading, signed, An episode user
@reviwer5678 - Some problems
This app is very fun and I love the look of the characters and all of the different stories, but the passes and the diamonds are a HUGE issue. You get 2 passes and after you use those you have to wait 3 hours for 2 more passes and the episodes go by quick. Also I feel that since you have to wait 3 hours for 2 that if you wait 6 hours you’ll get 2 more and so on not that you can’t get more then 2 without paying. Also the diamonds. The point in episode is that it’s YOUR choice of how the story goes and most of the time the choice I want to choose (which there’s only 2 options) I can’t pick because I have to pay actual money to get diamonds and choose it, and it’s not like that option changes the story all that much anyways (which it should) so you pay money for no big difference, but since the app advertises that we get to choose how the story goes and that’s not really all that true or at least it’s not that easy its very aggravating. This also goes for the outfits. They will offer you 2 different outfits, one is great and the obvious choice to choose, and the other is bland and not cute. Yet again to wear the cute one you have to pay money for diamonds and it’s not a little diamonds for one option, it’s a lot of diamonds. If you fixed that then I would give the game 5 stars.
Bugs be me - love it and would recommend but...
I really like this game but I do not like a few things. I do not like that you only have two tickets for waiting hours to read more chapters yes you can buy the tickets but I think if you have to wait hours for a couple chapters you should get more than two tickets. Also I don’t like that when it come to where you get to decide something the best choice is always so many diamonds and you only get one diamond every chapter and if you only are getting one per chapter and you are having to wait hours for only two chapters than you should be getting more diamonds. And if you have to buy diamonds to make the games stories more fun and interesting you should at least be able to watch ads for diamonds and tickets. But I do like that you can watch ads to make the ticket time go faster but yet again you are not getting enough tickets for the amount of time that you have to wait. But I really like the game and the stories but I like to be able to read more chapters than just two like every couple hours because the stories are very good. So I would recommend this game because it’s very fun and like reading a book but you get to decide what the characters do and I would like to be able to make more decisions for the characters and story. But over all this is a great game.
J.K rowling is genius - Amazing app but........
I absolutely love episode I’ve been playing it for 3 years and I’m never disappointed, but I’m really annoyed with diamonds you have to pay diamonds basically episode money to make choices in the game. I know this how episode makes a profit but I’ve bought a lot of diamonds played a story on my phone then played on my iPad with no diamonds and it really influenced the experience in story so I think that asking for diamonds for important stuff isn’t really that great but I’m ok with it I just don’t like it. My second opinion is I wish so much that you could reread a story I really wanna reread the story emerald ( I REALLY recommend it if you haven’t read already) I don’t think that would influence profits for the app just make more fun I’ve stopped reading stories then wanted to go back to them but I haven’t been able to because I can’t remember so much important stuff being able to reread would really help. Anyway that’s just what I think I still absolutely love this app and think it’s amazing I’ve recommended so many people to it and they’ve all loved it so no matter what this app is wonderful. Thx for reading all the way to the end this review is super long I know but thx for reading my opinions ♥️
"Cathy" Johnson - READ THIS: I’m going to cut straight to the point.
- Passes: Passes are required to read the story. You need 1 pass to read 1 chapter, except for the first 1. But, to get more passes, you can either buy some, or wait 3 hours for 3 passes. If your like me, you probably don’t want to pay for some requirements for a game. I think the creators should add a part to the game where you can get 1 or 2 passes by watching an ad.
- Gems: When you’re in the middle of reading a story, you get some options which will affect your future in the episode. Imagine this: A friend in the episode has invited you to a party. You have the “option” to wear the “sexy floral dress,” or the clothes you have on now, which are sweat pants and a tank top with a caffeine stain on it. The dress is 25 gems, and you only have 3, from where you earned them by reading 2 chapters of a story, which already used 2 passes. That means you are forced to wear the sweat pants and tank top with caffeine stains on it. (No offense to those who enjoy wearing sweat pants and tank tops)
You, or creators might be saying something along the lines of, “What is this idiot talking about!? If you’re complaining about the lack of input put into this game concerning the passes and gems, then just delete it it!” Well, creators will keep saying this, and eventually have no players to give them money in trade of gems or passes... Then who do you think will be complaining?
whatttttg i hate thiss - EPISODE IS USELESS
This might take a while to read but here we go. I just wanna start off with the gems. Ok so the gems....I think that at least we should start of with a decent amount. I know that when you read stories you earn gems but one gem!? I mean come on I read all of that just to get one gem?! *sigh* I’m disappointed in episode tbh. Ok the next one. Why do we have to read books to get the full version. Like...Why it’s just stupid. Like at least make it one or two books. Now the passes. Like the gems..at least let us start of with A DECENT AMOUNT. I unstalled episode hopefully to come back with better updates and other stuff but I come back to my least exceptions. The stories are great and all but why do we have to wait hours to get more passes. And when the hours are up you get 2 or 3. And the choices in the stories that are originally created from episode are a no for me. Why do I have to spend 29 gems on choices that I can easily say yes to without using gems. What you expect us to buy gems because we wanna spend 29 gems on one choice and you can’t even get the gems back. I had episode in the past and it was useless just like now. I’m angry that I expected, no HOPED that it would AT least just a small chance that it would get better. Honestly I’m starting to think about deleting this app. It’s pointless.
IronPython2908 - App is going DOWN HILL
I used to love playing Episode because it was a good time waster but now it’s really gone down hill! For example, you have to pay anywhere from 14-29 diamonds for a simple action like adding a tattoo to your character, and only get back 1 diamond per episode meaning you have to play 14-29 episodes to make one simple choice especially if you really want it. It’d be WAYYYY better if we could at least get more diamonds per episode like maybe 3-4 (WITHOUT CHANGING THE CURRENT CHOICE PRICES!!) that way we could at least be able to make choices without regretting it cause
“now you’ve started a new story and there’s a better option” or instead of upping the diamond rewards have a daily wheel that gives diamonds and stuff or let us watch videos to get more diamonds. There are still soo many people who have agreed with me on these points, plus many people have said that by adding choices that people can’t possibly afford has made most of the stories that these authors have worked HARD on terrible, not because of the story line but simply because there aren’t enough diamonds being passed out for the amount of diamonds being asked for per choice. Once this simple little thing is fixed you’ll get a higher rating on your app but until then, I and other people are uninstalling or deleting your app.
depends on the review - Get this game
I advise y’all u to get this game because I’ve had it for 3 years and I really like it. Reading isn’t the best to me, but language art is my favorite subject. My mom always tells me that I need to read more so I found this app and I can read and also enjoy the mysteries and the romance and all the other subjects. If you don’t like certain things then you can pick a different subject to read about. Also if you do not want to pay gems to get a different outfit or a certain option then after you’ve played the game for a certain amount of time then you’re able to play different ones that don’t require gems but also after you play you play the Episode you don’t get a gem back. My only problem with Episode is that sometimes the ads don’t have (x)’s on them so then you have to refresh the entire app and when you’ve already watched two ads and then you have to watch two more and two more you kind of gets upsetting because now you’ve watched all these ads multiple times and none of them have (x)’s. The problem with the ads, also have just started these past couple months. I’ve never had these problems before so I don’t really know why they’re happening but, I definitely think that someone should fix those ads.
Princess72398 - Give some credit!
I think the user stories within the app have really great and developed stories, so I think you should look for that kind of talent and make them an episode writer like Mette Peleikis. I noticed that you already did that for Sandra G. Which is really great btw. As for gems, I think we should be able to earn them after EVERY episode we play, whether it’s a story by a user, or an episode writer. And I think you should lower the amount of gems needed in the episode stories, at least for the first couple episodes to like 5 gems, especially since choosing the golden choices that cost like 30 gems completely alters the ending of your story. What I’m saying is if you’re forced to choose the choice that doesn’t cost any gems because you don’t HAVE that many gems, you aren’t “choosing your own story” like this app claims to do. I know this because while I was playing “Betting on the Boy” (spoiler alert) i had the “choice” of going to a concert with Drake and my favorite DJ, or going to the homecoming and getting humiliated. Can you guess which choice costs 25 gems? It was going to the concert... yeah, so I had no choice but to be humiliated and that’s how the story ended because I didn’t have 25 gems!
Ysabelle! - I’m addicted
I got this before, took a break, got I back again, took a break, got it back. It’s amazing how reading can actually be fun when it’s in a comic form! Now in motion it’s even more amazing! I’ve heard countless amazing reviews about Episode and it’s the best. You can basically read anywhere! And maybe an actual excuse to tell your parents to stay on your phone? That’s incredible. There are so much more I can compliment on this, the people, the stories, the hooks! But there are still things I would personally want to change. For example 20 diamonds for clothes you only where once? That’s absurd, especially when your only getting one diamond each episode it’s gonna take ages to actually get your 20 diamonds and then you waste it. It’s like there’s not even a decision, anyways. If you chose the free one, you’ll still get what you want, or in other words, there’s always a happy ending. I would like you to change that. Make there a twist. More twists than there actually is. Like if you choose one path, there might be some consequences, and you can work your way up to where your back on track. I know this will be a little hard to make, depending on how much episodes there are per story. Overall this is a great app to open up to appeal your boredom. Thanks!
Rise up game HATER - great, but..
I’ve always liked episode until the new update. I hate how now you have to unlock stories instead of just free for all looking and playing stories that sound interesting. Now, I can’t even make my own story and you don’t get gems after you play a chapter which forces you to buy them and not get any good choices you like. The stories are still addictive, but all the stories I’ve unlocked so far are ones I’ve already read, besides one that I only have 4 episodes left of (the baby project and I’m not a huge fan of it) I much enjoyed it better when I could find a story from the library and simply read it and make choices, it now I have to UNLOCK stories, which makes me angry. I really want to read the season of Pretty Little liars, but now I don’t have it since I haven’t unlocked it yet. I suggest bringing back the old episode, but adding a little more touches to make it less laggier, and maybe add a new design to make more stories POP out more. Maybe the authors could pick between a more realistic or a more cartoony design to their story to personified to their liking. It’s a suggestion and this is just my opinion, so please don’t come at me. I just wanted to tell you about the update and what I didn’t like about it. I can’t say much to my likings, the only thing I like is that the stories are fun and addictive, hopefully I’ll unlock Pretty Little Liars soon!
minorinori - We get it, you want money
I had the app a few years ago when the original Campus Crush was their main story, and am pretty disappointed with how it has become. The whole point of the app is to have “choices,” yet most of the important choices require you to use gems now, which you can’t come by easily unless you have actual money to dish out. You can’t even wear a good outfit without them asking for 20 gems, and it’s funny how the only other choice is to basically let down yourself or another character. I get that the developers want to make money, but you can do so without basically taking away the choice aspect. It used to be fun to pick outfits at your own leisure, and decide to go on an important date with the character you like without having to spend anything. Also a lot of the main stories just seem so rushed. They used to have a lot of growth and depth, but these are so straightforward and aren’t worth spending diamonds in lol. I used my diamonds once and it ended up being such a lousy scene. Also, there’s an ad that pops up pretty frequently but doesn’t play, so it won’t let me get to my story or exit to the main screen. It’s literally just a black screen and even if I force quit the app it’ll still play again, and I’ll still have to watch the other ad each time as well.
Okokk31 - Complete let down
This game started off fun until I got a little further into it. Once you get past some stages you are either having to pay for more gems, or basically not making the right decision. There is only a handful of things that you can actually choose from when it comes to making the choices as well. Also go add to having to pay for things, if you want to continue you have to pay for passes or wait a full four hours to continue to the next stage to only make the wrong choice again because you don’t want to pay for more gems. This game was a complete rip off and should either be something that is free the WHOLE time, or while playing you don’t have to use as many gems and passes to continue on. Deleted this game within a day because I’m not wasting money on something that you only get to choose what you’re doing and going to say 45% of the time. Complete waste of time and money, the graphics on this game were also terrible. I get it you can match the mouths up perfectly to words, but you could have tried a little bit harder than what you did. I was completely let down with this game and would not recommend it to anyone. Your adds need to state “Download this game, but be prepared to pay for crap out the butthole!” Come up with an excellent game then maybe, just maybe, charge people $1.99 for like a total of 5-10 gems that will get you NOTHING unless you continuously buy them.
storytellerrrrrrr - I love this app so much!
This app not only keeps me on my toes but it also thrills me with excitement. I’ve had episode for a while now and I’ve loved it so far. The stories are all unique , creative, and amazing. I’ve actually considered taking a career in script writing because of this app. The choices you have to determine where you end up in the story is a great idea ! It’s like you’re actually there . I even get emotions with some of the stories when it takes a big plot twist you never even saw coming. Episode is definitely apart of me and I hope other people would see how amazing it is. Honestly ,I don’t really like waiting so long for tickets, however this makes log into the app everyday and check my tickets to see if they’re ready or not. (Yes I do have a life lol.) but episode is a everyday thing for me with the hundreds of episodes that you can go through ! I really hope that there’s an update soon tho to fix some bugs Bc I’m having trouble whenever I watch the ads to subtract time it will give me 4 tickets then once I’ve used one it goes back to 0 and makes me wait again. All in all, I love this app and I hope other people will too that are just new to this app! It’s a perfect story app!
Emily_Claire54 - Love but needs some improvements I think
Episode is a really great fun app that truly does have amazing stories but I wish we didn’t have to buy gems for like every story to get the good scenes and dialogue. We have to pay like 30 gems for a good outfit and if we don’t we have to wear like sleep clothing. Also I wish there were more ways to get passes and that you could stack them up easier rather than just paying a bunch of money. Also I would like the idea of a “continue reading” shelf where stories you have started will be and where you can remove them if you don’t wish to continue reading. I want this because my “Favorites” section gets to filled up with stories because I have so many I want to get to that I feel so overwhelmed because there are like 70 stories in there and I don’t even know if i want to continue some of them. And right after I finish a story that’s been in my favorites I remove it to clear up some space for myself and just keep stories i’m in the middle of so I don’t even really use it for stories I would consider my “favorite” it’s just stories i’m in the middle of which is why I would really like if there was a continue reading shelf on the home page for episode. But this app is still really enjoyable and some of the community stories are so interactive and enjoyable.
Dghdhfff - Looks like this game hasn’t learned
I had this game years ago and got rid of it fast. I wanted to come back to it but it appears as if nothing has changed at all. The concept itself is fantastic. The stories are great as long as you can go through them the way you want to. The problem is next to no one can. Because this game is one of the most greedy and money hungry apps I’ve ever seen. For years people have asked for cheaper tickets cheaper diamonds more ways to earn both in less time and the creators refuse to listen. If this game were still trying to take off I’d understand the cost of it. It’s not free to run and continuously develop games. But this game has literally been out for YEARS and it’s advertised on everything. Games. Social media. Other apps. So it’s popular enough that they’ve made more than enough money to advertise the hell out of this to make even more money and they’ve yet to give back at all to the people who have helped make this game a success. Instead they continue to overcharge the hell out of anyone who’s willing to spend money to not have to wait 2-3 hours for a story or to get that one choice in the story you know is gonna make all the difference. I hope some other app ends up blowing this one out of the water.
breewee54321 - Great app people don’t understand tho......
This is a great app and there’s many people saying that the choices of all the episodes are sooo many diamonds and they are sort of true in a way, well there’s another section called community romance and there’s NO choices that cost gems, and I LOVE those stories there so much more fun to play because u can really get into the story, BUT there is one little thing that is bothering me PASSES you get 2 passes every 4 hours BUT only AFTER you use those passes! And if you have not downloaded this app the stories are about 40 to 70 episodes long and each one takes a pass so you can see why this angers people. A very easy solution would be to make a add on where you can watch ads to get passes that would be greatly appreciated I have read other comments and every one of them say exactly this, so EPISODE PLEASE take a hint we are just trying to make this game more interesting and better for other players. But in all I won’t say I don’t play this game all the time, this is an amazing app but they need to work on a few things p.s if you get this app you HAVE TO play meet me at sunrise it is killer fun. That’s all thanks for reading hopefully episode does something! Much love
Mad Episode Fan - ONLY 2 PASSES
This game is amazing, but I hate having to wait 3 to 4 hours just to get two passes. It’s OK now, but I love how it used to be. All the stories ever made by Episode we’re free to read and you get a free gem after, I loved that, I could easily earn gems and have fun doing it. But then you had to go and make it worse. Now all the stories made by episode cost a pass, And now we only get to gems. And the challenges, you need four chapters read but we only get to read two, and then wait for 3 to 4 hours. The game was awesome originally, but you guys ruined it. If we got four passes and that little game where you could spin and earn gems and passes and all the stories made by Episode were free and you get a free gym after then I would rate it a five star app, but now I’m going to rate a three star app because of how you guys changed it and made it a little unfair for all of us readers. I have to wait 3 to 4 hours to read any of the stories.😡 this is not meant to offend anyone but it is to inform the creators of episode of how it is getting unfair for us readers and I feel like that you creators of episode should be making it fair and not just having us wait 3 to 4 hours just watch one story thank you.
Katie 414 - Recommendations:
I love episode! It’s a great way to distract myself from the world around me. I buy ticketed and diamonds all the time but I thought “What If you could by tickets with your diamonds?” Think about it. We buy diamonds to use for skipping ads, or getting a special scene in the chapter. We should be able to use them for buying tickets.
I also think that the prices of “special scenes” should decrease. I just bought 150 diamonds and they are almost all gone because each special scene is 20-30 diamonds. It would be better if they costed single digits, or 10-15 diamonds. I like to read the non- episode stories to avoid spending my diamonds.
With those “episode stories,” they used to be long and have 10-15 chapters. All of the new ones are fully released with around 8 chapters. You finish the story so quick and it isn’t as enjoyable compared to a story with 20-40 chapters, especially if your putting money into getting diamonds for those “specIal scenes.”
Another thing is, when I try to write my own story, the characters are in the original episode character form. I’m not sure how to switch it and I think you might have to pay for it or something. That should be changed.
Derp potatoe - Gems
I really enjoy the game but right now there are things I’m saving for in real life but I get tempted to buy the gems and knowing I can’t buy them to pick the options I want to pick just gives me a really bad headache and so I wish there were different things you could to do to get unlimited diamonds for a certain amount of time (goes for tickets to but the diamonds are much worse) I am doing a story right now and there is an option that I really wanted to pick but I did buy diamonds 1 time and there gone now and I can’t do any of the fun options I want to so I wish diamonds just weren’t there anymore and depending on the choice you picked you could still unlock an outfit I feel like this would also get more people to play because they wouldn’t get headaches or have to spend there money please consider this because I really enjoy this game but I don’t want to spend my money because I have a lot of friends birthdays coming up and some other stuff and so sadly if it gets to the point we’re I’m so upset about not spending my money on the game to get the outfits and options I want I will just delete the game and not play again some of my friends with the game are having the same problem to and they have told me they may delete the game as well because of this problem thank you for reading!!!
LissaEV - Some changes need to be made
I love this games and have been playing since the original game came out. I recently downloaded it again because I remembered how much I loved it. Simulation games have always been my thing, especially with a storyline. I’ve been playing The Sims since I was 11 so this game is very suiting to my taste. One issue I noticed however, is that everything requires diamonds. And it’s not like it’s a reasonable amount of diamonds. They will ask you to pay 29 diamonds just to choose a different outfit, which 22 diamonds cost 1.99, so you’d be paying more than 2 dollars for ONE singular choice. I did make the purchase of diamonds a few times, and when I stopped, I noticed that the choices that are free continue the storyline in the same manner. It’s just a little more boring without purchasing the other choices. If the purchase of diamonds would actually be worth the price you pay, than I would continue buying them. Instead of 29 diamonds for a choice, it should be 5 diamonds for a choice. But 2 dollars per choice, and sometimes MORE, is not worth it in my opinion. I love the game, and I will keep playing it, but I won’t be making anymore in app purchases. Hope you guys take this into consideration, especially seeing that I’m not the only one with a review regarding the diamond policy.
Hailey Bergeron ☺️ - One obvious problem: Gems and Passes!
For the passes: I love binge reading stories, and I love episode, but I can’t do it on there. They need to do something to where they regenerate faster. Maybe gain a pass every 30 minutes but you can only store a total of 5 at a time? I don’t know but they should either give us more passes for the time it takes to regenerate, or to shorten the time. I do miss the update they once had where after reading a certain amount of chapters, you’d gain another free pass. They should possibly bring that back too.
For the gems: I hate reading episodes official stories. I always get super invested in a story, but I can never make a choice I want because the choices I want cost gems. I might be willing to actually choose the gem options if they DIDNT COST SO MUCH. Maybe if it were up to 5 gems an option, that’d be more realistic than 30 GEMS FOR A STUPID DRESS that doesn’t make a difference on the outcome of your story. I was reading some reviews and I also liked the idea of a daily reward type thing. It would get readers opening up the app more often obviously,, and it will make the readers happier to not have to waste real money to get a better outcome on a fake story.
Terria15 - Episode is OK
I love the stories don’t get me wrong, but I hate that you have to pay so much money out of pocket just to make choices. You also only receive 1 gem per chapter you complete. 1 GEM😳, how ridiculous is that. I love reading the stories, but I got tired of spending so much money in this app. Also, when I buy gems it only takes a couple of choices to use them up🤦🏽♀️. The gem requirements are way to high compared to the prices. They could be way more lenient then they are being. I have not updated this app for the last past updates because I will not continue to waste so much money. I see people saying that you don’t have to read the stories, or you don’t have to make the choices that cost gems. Come on now let’s be real about it that’s the most exciting part about the stories. Like I said great stories, but I will not be spending ANYMORE money within this app until something is done about it. I haven’t used the app in a while, and I may just delete it because really who wants to read the stories and make boring choices. That makes the story boring. They know that games like this are addictive, so they can get you out of your money. But I won’t spend another dime on this app!! At least other apps that have you to buy things gives you a time limit or gives you a good amount of whatever you need to continue to play the game.
Tiny sheep master - Was ok... NOW ITS AMAZING!
I love this game. I think it is incredibly fun to customize your character while going through stories. It’s also super fun to right your own stories, and not difficult at all. The app makes it very easy and very fun! I really think the only problem is the passes and diamonds. Yes, I do know everyone else says this. Maybe not even the diamonds, but if you are trying to enjoy the story, you have to stop and wait 4 hours for more passes! Maybe they could leave us with 10 passes, then wait 2 hours and get 10 more passes, but definitely not 4 hours FOR ONLY TWO PASSES. And if the app is worried about making money, you can still make money off of gems! Maybe there could be like a chest or something that gave you a diamond a day, or not. Just as long as the passes situation gets fixed. I would totally give the app a million star rating if the passes weren’t so difficult to get or you didn’t have to wait as long.
Ok I wrote this on the third day I had the app. Now it is the end of the week and I have completed 40 episodes. Now I get 4 passes instead of just two every four hours. MUCH BETTER!! I’m very happy that this happened and I totally recommend this app!
kittycutiegirl - Uh
Well, kinda inappropriate. Cool but costs diamonds. Still good. I wish you could not only have 2 tickets and then u have to wait to use them. Idk why but I’m gonna re download it, even tho my parents would be a little mad, since it’s inappropriate. You’re lucky, Episode! I’m giving you a 2nd chance! And even YouTubers like Azzyland and Gloom are trying it and saying it’s inappropriate!! The DIAMONDs are soooo annoying. I miss out on so many things cuz I don’t wanna pay money for gems! My request: plz plz plz make things not so many gems. The awesome stuff is like 19 gems instead of 19 or higher maybe 2. And also could you start us off with 50 or 100 gems? And give us 5 gems after every chapter we do instead of just getting 1? I think it should be 13+ or something but that means i could not play this awesome game. See?? I called it awesome! (Well, besides all my complaints this game is pretty awesome) thx for reading this long review byeeee yeah so my parents figured out I was using this game and my mom downloaded it and played it. It felt like she was teasing me. It’s really not for anyone under 12 maybe 11 or 10. Even if you can get 12+ apps and ur like 9, plz don’t get this app. A little too mature for anyone under 10. 11 or 12+ kids should get this.
angelacauldron - HELP !!
Okay, so let me start off my saying I love this app. But, this morning I was reading a story, then my iPod shut down and restarted (like a hard restart). When I reopened the Episode app, it was restarted (not my tickets, just my favorite stories & the chapter number I left off on). Each time I log back into my profile, it works like normal. Then, I start reading a chapter. Sometimes, it takes me to where I left off. But now, it restarts the whole story to chapter 1, despite me already logged in. I don’t know why it does this, but please help me. It’s especially annoying because I recently bought a month Infiniti passes and I wouldn’t want it to go to waste. Also, each time I double press my home button, and swipe the app up, when I later reopen it, the app restarts - as if I just downloaded it (my unlimited passes are still there, though). UPDATE; In less than an hour, things begin to worsen. Basically I tried restarting my iPod and opening the app. Then, it after clicking “Okay” for a message that said to accept the terms and whatnot, it showed a picture of Aria (from PLL) and some girl from Pitch Perfect. The picture doesn’t change, so I can’t even log in. It just stays on that screen, without loading... please help and respond soon.
gascjitredvhur - Cc
I would recommend this game because all the options that they give you that are actually good halftime and then get a bite and there’s no point I only only only download this game if you want to spend about $1000 or do you just taking some choices that have just a little bit of German like it what if you just kidding you don’t wanna spend any money but they basically force you to because those are the only good good choices that she could possibly pick so imagine it like this if you’re just a kid and you don’t wanna spend the money and then this good game so much drama in it but all the good decisions you have to pay for them and if you had the thing if you have a game for about a yearYou’re gonna have to spend about $1000 maybe more just to buy all these choices that you really want but if you don’t if you choose not to buy any of them which I did you would have to spend any money but all the things would be playing another choice you pick will be so bad in the window drama in the game would basically be pointless want is for you to do is buy all of them but I am not going to spend 2000 $3000 just on some choices so I was really not recommend this game this game is really only for like rich people so they can spend so much money just buy the diamond just taking all these chances but other than that is part of this but I really would not recommend this game at all.😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡
Jujujucie - Why I gave episode four stars...
Let me start off by saying that if it was possible to give them 4.5 stars I would have. Episode is an app that despite being aimed at children also appeals to adults. That’s what makes the app great. While I wish episode would add a mature reading shelf for 17+ readers I also know that it’s really just a high hope that comes with many issues in certain eyes. But I’m not complaining, I don’t mind the shelf’s as is. However my only issues begin to come in when episode contradicts themselves with their own guidelines. Episode is a place to explore your imagination and enjoy stories. However when episode is also charging you 39 gems for an outfit and then 49 more for a choice you find your pockets empty. I only wish they would write more diverse, less cliche and more hard working directing from their actual writing team.
All this aside wishing they also provided items for the impaired. I could on and on but my final stance is on the matter that if you’re planning to join episode: read authors stories and stories that cover all the factors of imagination not half way written ones. The app overall I’d give it’s an 8.8 considering how long I’ve been in the community and how I feel they treat their non paid workers.
ᑕᑌᒪEGᑌᖇᒪ - It’s okay
The game is is good but I hate how you have to pay gems to get the things you want. Especially at the intro/tutorial to your first time playing, you don’t want to see how you’re just there to spend money because that just makes me want to delete this app. Part of me wants to delete this app straight away since it’s not fair that I feel like every time I feel like I’m getting options I’m not. It’s the most frustrating thing ever. Also maybe when you are a beginner instead of giving 1 gem at a time give at least 20 gems for free. No reason to be that stingy. I feel like as a consumer that this app makes it really obvious they want our money. If we want to wear a pretty outfit we can’t, we have to spend gems and have to wear “normal” clothes. I’ve been playing episode on and off for a good five years and this new updated version kinda makes me frustrated because the old episode we didn’t have to pay for one of the options ( also it’s so expensive to use 25 gems for one options per chapter). Also instead of giving 2 tickets why don’t you give us 3 tickets like everyone else. If this makes sense at all I really hope you improve your app because this is a good app although I mainly talked about the bad stuff it’s a really good game. I always come back to playing the game it’s just it’s not cool to only give us one free option.
Lunar_Eclipse597 - Amazing!!
This app is completely addicting. The stories are created by people who maybe can’t publish anything more but have amazing minds. The stories you can read range from marrying millionaire to teenage mystery’s. It has everything you would ever want in a story and in the majority of the stories it gives you the opportunity to customize the main character, their love interest, and sometimes even their friends. The story lines can also be pretty basic but they can also be very deep. I totally recommend getting this. It does run on a ticket system, you get four tickets to start off on and use a ticket every time you play an episode. The very first episode of every story doesn’t have you use a ticket but all the other ones do. When you play an episode you have to watch two adds before actually playing, except for the very first episode, which isn’t bad because they only play the adds in the beginning. However there is also a diamond thing where you can use diamonds to click special offers, and skip the adds in the beginning of the episodes. Overall this app is amazing and addicting and I completely recommend getting it!!
knh_above - Love it! But there are some bugs...
I absolutely love this app, the developers give us a fair amount of tickets and also give us diamonds for ever episode story I read I think I've been playing episode for about three years, and there has been major improvements I couldn't be happier. But there's been a glitch recently and it's rather annoying, you see the majority of the time since the last four updates after I get done watching the ads to play a story the screen freezes up after the ads and I'll exit the game and replay the ads several time and it still chooses not to function. I honestly expected it to caught since there has been four updates since it's happened, and it's not only me a few of my friends have been experiencing the same issue. Also on the story "falling for the Dolan twins" it keeps acting as if the story is finished when it's not, and refers me to read other stories in the library. I know I haven't finished the story because I am currently on chapter 13 of 27. But yet the app doesn't know this. I hate that I have to write a complaint because I love this app but if me and my friends have to keep dealing with these issues and bugs we may just end up deleting this app for it's extremely frustrating.
JessikahJ6 - Great concept, poor execution
The concept of the game is fantastic - multiple storylines and opportunities, the illusion of reader agency in the plot line, the fun visuals; however, the amount of gems needed to make some different and fun choices in the game is almost offensive ($2 (20+ gems) per choice?? When you only make 1 gem when you finish 1-2 episodes?? In a 25+ episode story where all episodes require gem choices?? I could just go to the Kindle store and buy 25+ e-BOOKS for that!). I wouldn’t even mind the fact that you only get 2 tickets every 3 hours if the gem situation were more under control.
I’d highly suggest either: dramatically lowering how many gems are needed an episode (seriously, I shouldn’t be spending more than $5 on an alternate reality of the same story...especially when there are so many!), AND/OR give me way more fun options that don’t require gems (and save gems for the super duper great option...which honestly should still be less than 20+ gems but I digress), AND/OR come up with ways to make way more gems a reading session.
At this rate I’m interested enough to see through all of the free non-gem items for a bit, but I definitely see myself getting bored and dropping it altogether (like I did the first time I downloaded this about 1-2 years ago). A real shame.
Kevinv2513 - I love it
Honestly I have had episode for like 2 in a half years now I’m constantly on it when I have time you guys have some incredible authors who’s stories I can’t stop reading. Normally I just buy the unlimited passes with no add every month but lately I had to stop doing that and I had a lot of passes saved up but like I said I get hooked and I liked how you use to have to check to get some passes now it’s like you have to read 4 chapters to get 1 pass a day. I like how it use to be 3 chapters and I don’t like how you just get one pass and if you run out you have to pay for it it was easier for me when I bought the passes but I can’t right now. I also don’t like how I literally just read 4 chapters (I used up the last 4 of my passes) and it said I only ready 3 chapters idk if it’s your guys part or the authors part where it says you reached the end of the story the author may or may not continue the story that should count as a chapter. I will still keep the app because like I said I am hooked on so many of these great authors stories that I have read since the beginning but those are just the things I’m not happy without her then that I still love this app.
awesomeperson821 - fun but also annoying
let me just say, i love this game. i’ve played it over the years and i just recently redownloaded it after seeing it in an ad and remembered it. i like being able to customize my character and my “love interest.” the stories are really entertaining and interactive and i love being able to make choices that will affect my path. buttttt, i have to say i’m tired of all the exclusive choices that pop up. i swear, you can’t do anything good on the game unless you use your gems to pick the exclusive choice. how am i supposed to go to a school dance when all i have to wear is jeans and shirt? like come on. i wouldn’t mind picking exclusive choices more often if there’s a way we could gems more easily. only getting one gem per chapter is a little stingy, tbh. we have to read 19-29 chapters to even pick ONE exclusive choice. i’ve bought the 99 cent gem pack a couple of times but i’m not doing that anymore because it’s a waste. there should be a way to get gems without having to pay for them. there should be a “daily reward” like i’ve seen in other games where it gives you a few gems for everyday you get on the game without skipping a day. just a thought. overall, i love this game but it’s needs a few tweaks.
Sanaa🌙 - Not the best but not bad...
I’m glad you guys fixed the amount of time we have to wait for getting gems, I don’t tend to binge read a lot of the Episode Creator stories though because they seem quite cliché. I think you guys should make more realistic stories because you guys do have a more mature audience who doesn’t like the bad boy falls for the good/shy girl type stories. Give us something where we feel empowered, like to actually make our own stories instead of making us feel like we need to go with the most cliché options to get somewhere. I also have a complaint on the result of using gems, not too long ago I decided to spend gems on an option in Pitch Perfect, I didn’t even get what I spent gems on. Like it literally bypassed what I chose, which was to kiss some guy. Didn’t get to kiss the guy, and the second thing I was “promised” in that option didn’t even happen... Why are you guys ripping people off? This is just a plain example of how greedy companies are for money rather than actually giving the fans what they want. The game is addicting if you find something user created in my opinion, because Episode doesn’t usually tend to make more than 25+ chapters. Would I recommend the game? Sure, but would I recommend spending money/gems on options? Most definitely not.
Faith Resler - Go back to the old ways
So I have absolutely loved this game for long time. Like since when it first started. When I first started playing the diamond thing wasn’t a thing and now it is. I absolutely hate that. It’s not fair because we don’t have money to spend on games but it really impacts what happens in the story. We don’t get to choose that many things anymore and now half of the time when I can choose something I only have one choice because of the diamonds. Please change this back to how it was when I first started playing. Also we used to get to scroll through many stories now we have to unlock them? What is that? I have stories I want to play again and I can’t find them anymore. I can’t even get logged into my account after downloading it again after a while. I have downloaded and deleted this game so many times because I always get mad that I have to wait hours for tickets and then I can’t do a story life changing choice because of the diamonds. I love this game and it deserves 5 stars but you guys have gotten money greedy with making people want their choice so badly they spend money just to get 29 diamonds because that’s the only way you can get anywhere which is ridiculous. Go back to the old game when I played the Hollywood game story!
east.atlas - Fun isn’t free in this game
My only issue with this game are the gems and the tickets, I’ll start with the gems, YOU LITERALLY GET NO FUN CHOICES FOR FREE, this game is trying to get rich off people wanting to have a little pass time fun on their phones. Come on, I should be able to make a couple fun choices for free. Or a least don’t make my character wear “smelly pajamas” where I’m going to get told I stink if I don’t have 35 gems to wear something cute while watching a movie on my own couch, an outfit that I wouldn’t even be snake to keep to wear again at that... That’s just insane rude and greedy of the creators. Please come up with a way to earn gems in the game. If I made all the choices I’d want to make it would probably run me 400 gems per episode which I think they sell for about $80 So I always make the lame uninteresting free choices that result in me not going on dates and looking like a slob apparently. This game is super annoying in that sense. Although I enjoy creating characters, and the stories lines are alright. The tickets are also a tad annoying, your tickets renew after a few hours but why am I only allowed to earn 3 at a time? If I don’t play for a day or two I should be able to come back and have 6 or 9 tickets instead. I don’t see why they did that. This game doesn’t care about the consumers enjoyment clearly it’s just a way to make money.
syd1235667 - I'm truly in love with this game
I love this game it's fun I like how we can write our own stories! And look at other stories that aren't from episode, writing is like a hobby for me, so I enjoy it! I love how we have our own profile and followers. And we can follow others! I love everything about it! I just wish that episode would start making longer stories and bit rush ending them.. Like for ” Positive Princess” I was hoping I would see more into the whole pregnant thing. Or at least continue you it a bit more instead of ending it like that. I also recommend adding a button on any story where we can edit our character! So the writer dosen't have to keep letting others customize characters! Because I keep replaying my episodes just because I don't like the way my character looks like! And I'm waisting replays.. So like the demi lovato one, we could change are characters look whenever we wanted! Also, I recommend a button where we can erase our data from playing episodes, like if I finished that same story on so many replays is like to read it again! So maybe add a delete replay option, but I love the app! ( Plesse respond im truly a fan of episode)
JMJKRM - PASSES WON’T REFILL
Ok so I have been playing episode since this app had only 2 passes, so you can say that I’m a really old episode player/ lover idk. But there seems to be a problem now on this app that after a few hours no matter how much passes you’d have they would still refill and give you more passes but now nothing like this happens and it’s been a while since I actually read some of my fav stories on episode. Alot of people have complained about this problem bc many people like me had a lot of passes that kept on refilling and giving us more passes for free and then there is also the daily challenge from which you can get passes if you read 4 chapters daily. But the thing is that I don’t want to play the daily challenge and loose 4 of my free passes (that I have out of 14 now) and I don’t wanna PURCHASE passes with my own real money other than that before there was an option where you’d watch a video and get a free pass or a diamond but now all there is, is an option to purchase.
So in conclusion I think I don’t want to play this game anymore unless they fix this glitch and let us have more than 4 passes bc I’m sure a lot of people will appreciate that.
Also many people on this episode forum thing online have posted ss of email from episode saying that people can now only have 4 passes so that’s kind of a dumb move episode bc you just lost a very old player of yours.
a wants this app - Room for Improvement
I’m enjoying these immersive experience apps although the technology and programming needs help and work for growth and expansion at this stage. There are so many stories that can be used from Barnes & Nobles Bookstores and libraries where royalties and commissions can be paid similar to streaming music and give more episodes, stories options and choices within the app so users don’t have to wait so long to get keys and diamonds as the regular and then it gives reasons for us to purchase within the app because the basic level is above average. It could also expand the storylines out and make then more interesting. The formatting is incredible and the character options are as well but the settings don’t change a lot, the backgrounds do not change a lot, the character clothing changes have so much that can be expanded with more people hired and the company team expanded. Read some books at the bookstore and ask the authors if you can use portions and give credits to them, add some famous cartoons to the story, choices to attend concerts or go to the movies, more sex and romance and thrill in the stories with pranks and jokes. I have faith that This is going to be a huge app eventually. I stand by my review I’m looking forward to reviewing again in a few months.
AcuallyAsh - amazing app but..............
I have used episode from the beginning of its first animation. I truly love the app it’s very diverse in all things. When I came home the first thing, I would do was read episode, and I even referred my friends to this app. I really loved the wonderful ink animation it made the character look better than any other story platform. As I continued to go through the years limelight has been promoted so much, and ink has been phased-out by the Episode team. Other original episode users and writers have expressed there concerns and disappointment of limelight animation. This new animation is horrible individuals have expressed to me that its “deformed and robotic”, and“the men in limelight versions look like dreadful Ken dolls.” Others and I are extremely dissatisfied in the episodes teams endeavors to phaseout ink stories, because we were able to be more connected to a style that was lively. It saddens me to see Ink has become less common, as a result I rarely use episode. I went from being on episode 24/7 for YEARS to haven’t had used it in 1 year. Thank You, episode creators for your diversity, time, and innovative ideas. Although this is the end of others and I using “Episode- choose your story” without being able to truly see stories come to life in a loved ink animation.
Awesome resin hddnfjfj - Love it but...PLEASE READ
I love this app, don’t get me wrong. The story animation and the outlines/ plots are beautifully constructed. YET, the passes and the gems. I’m sure I’m not the only one that has reported this. I like the addition where the more often you read, the more passes you get WITHIN the span of four hours. That’s the problem. If the time could be shortened to at least two hours, it would be so much better. I completely understand that you, as creators, need the money but not everyone can just spend money on passes. We could watch advertisements as a source of income for you. Moving onto the gems, I love the addition of gems being added to the game, it gives you an opportunity to choose special occasions and choices. But considering our set back with four passes in four hours and one gem per episode? We simply are not given the luxury of spending 20 gems on choices that appear at LEAST three times in one episode. Now, I realize that this review might not be read by all, but to whom it may concern; it would be greatly appreciated by all of your downloaders if you were able to make a bigger opportunity for us to gain gems and passes through advertisements or at a shorter time period. Thanks!
Maddyu - Don’t download unless you want to pay for everything you do.
Where do I start? First of all, the “stories” are nothing like the dramatic clickbait ads in my experience. The choices you make don’t make much of a difference in the stories, what little choice you do have. You don’t have much freedom in this. What you say or do or feel is basically already picked out for you, and you just kinda keep clicking next to see whatever your character says and does with little to no input of your own. And the few choices you do get to make require gems. Gems cost money. So in order to actually do anything or pick an outfit you like, you have to pay for it every time. You do get a free gem after completing each episode, but since they each cost one pass you’re not going to get many without spending cash. Second of all, you have to pay for every little thing you do. In order to progress in these stories you need passes. The first episode of each story doesn’t require a pass, but as you go on you’ll need to either pay for them or wait several hours in order to get two passes and play for ten minutes. This game isn’t really my thing in the first place, but after seeing all the ads for it constantly I decided to give it a try. And it wasn’t worth it. Perhaps I would be more interested if I had a little freedom and didn’t have to spend actual money to even play.
