Customer Reviews

Great game! (5 stars)
I really like this game! It was a bit too fast for me at the beginning, but now that I've had some time to get used to the controls and upgrade my stuff I'm finding it to be quite manageable. It's fun and addicting, but you can play it in short bursts too if you want. I really like how no matter how short a run is, it always says "You Win!" It's just a little thing that makes me feel good about the progress I've made, even if I did

Way too fast paced (2 stars)
So, I can definitely see the appeal of this game. But, certain aspects of it make it very unenjoyable for me. Mainly, it's because the gameplay is way too fast. The fact that you can't take as much time as you'd like matching the tiles really bugs me, and knowing that taking a long time actually causes me to die sort of stresses me out while playing, causing me to not even be able to think clearly about matching. So yeah. It's a personal pro

Can't Stop Playing (5 stars)
Between addictive and fast paced puzzle solving, upgrading my boat, prestiging, and the fun new daily dungeon in the most recent update, I've easily sunk hours into this game. Well worth the price, I find myself playing it nearly once a day even after months of owning it.
