All balls have to go into the pipe … can you remove the pins in the right order and make it happen?
It should be simple: gravity pulls the balls down towards the pipe. But then pins are in the way! Can you help out and flip away the pins and get the balls to where they are supposed to be?
But wait: there is another level of trickery! Sometimes some of the balls are colourless: before they go into the pipe, they need to touch a color ball, so the color spreads to them as well. So simple yet so tricky!
I think I've finished it
No more challenges past 120. I'm up to level 1350 so far, but I don't like how it changed to a stage format from about level 1100 onwards. Lots of glitches to deal with along the way, inconsistent game physics (balls bouncing and then not on level retry, balls refusing to roll downhill, bombs getting stuck mid-air, balls bouncing through walls, out of baskets at the end etc). I lost count of how many times I got the same girl with the pearl earring puzzle pieces. Unable to open reward boxes most of the time. Ads with unmutable loud volume. Generally as crappy as you'd expect for a game found via FB page spam but it passed the time.
Challenges 86 and 98
Both of these challenges I’ve tried countless times they both seem unplayable.
Anyone get these yet and if so how did you do it.
Level 2042 Fustration
I downloaded this game because of the cool Mona Lisa puzzle graphics in the advertisement that despite reaching level 2042, I NEVER saw. After challenge level 50 there were no more challenges. Now it is Super Boring. I’m Done.
It’s all fun and games until...🔫
So yes, I was playing my daily “match it 3D😎” and I lost. I screamed my head off the moment I lost, (Too much information..??? nahh) and I HAD to get more time. So yes, I pressed “get more time👁 👄 👁” once I pressed that, a frickin’ add popped up. (Why am I so mad, it happens for everyone 😩🦶) AND OFC, THE APP “pull the pin🔫👼🏼” POPPED UP. I thought it was pretty interesting so... I DOWNLOADED IT😎 Right as I got on it, I started playing. So about 4-5 rounds later, a add popped up. And after that add, another popped up, and another, and another, and another.. Exc. I got so frustrated I deleted the app. There, here have some food. 🍏🍎🍐🍋🍉🍌🍊🍇🍓🍒🍈🫐🥭🍑🍍🥝🥥🥨🧀🧈🍳🧇🥓🍖🍗🌭🍔🍟🍕🫓🥪🌮🧆🥙🫔🌯🥘🫕🍲🍜🍝🍛🍣🍱🍤🥟🍙🍘🥮🥠🥠🥠🥠🥠🥠🥠🥠🥠🥠🥠🥠🥠🥠🥠🥠🥠🥠🥠🥠🥠🍥🍢🍡🍧🥧🍦🍨🧁🍰🎂🍬🍭🍮🍫🍿🍩🥜🌰🍪🍫🍿🍩🥜🌰🍿🍬🍭🍰🎂🥧🍦🍨🧁🍮🍢🍧🍧🍡🥮🥠🥠🥠🥠🥠🥠🥠🥠🥠🍰🍦🍮🍿🍬🍼🍼🍼🍼🍼🍼🍼🍼🍼🍼🍼🍼🍼🍼🍼🍼🍼🍵🧋🧋🧋🧋🧋🧋🧋🧋🧋🧋🧋🧋🧋🧋🧋🧋🧋🧋🧋🧋🧋🧋🧋🧋
A fairly relaxing game to play
As others have pointed, this game is very easy and doesn’t really seem to get harder. I’m currently on level 214 and it’s been a breeze so far. Even so, it’s a nice game to fire up if you’re just relaxing and want something chill and easy to play. My main issue with it is that there are times where, as the balls are all tumbling into the container, a ball or 2 will not make it for some reason and will fall into the void, which causes the game to think you did something wrong and fails the level. This should not be the case, as I have no control over how the balls tumble. A word to the wise for the devs: you should not program your game to blame the player for something out of their control. This is the reason why I cannot give it 5 stars. Other than that, I have no issues.
Love this game, however.....
Ok, so first things first. This game is great. I love it. I do however have one major issue with this game and that is that the ads won’t load and you are left sitting thinking that maybe it will load and you will get your reward. Nope. It’s completely close the game down and restart it. Now, admittedly you have the option to watch the video again after completing the same level. Then, IF it loads you can get your rewards. I hope this is a “bug” that will soon be fixed. Also, add some new graphics or new skins or new wallpaper, something to add a splash like the ads for all these new games that “advertise” the pull pin style gameplay yet you know aren’t. Let’s fix the few bugs and add some cool features and this game will absolutely be unbeatable.
Pretty good game
As many have said, it doesn’t get harder as you move through the game. I’m in the 200s and still pretty easy. I paid for ads to be removed, which makes it much more enjoyable. One frustrating thing - the FAIL message comes so quickly, it’s impossible to figure out what I’ve done wrong! The message takes over as it’s failing, not after it’s failed. I’m adding this now that I’m in the high 300s - this is soooo boring. I’ve only had one (yes, one) real challenge in the entire game. PLEASE add some challenging levels. And where are the ones you showed in your ads? They looked pretty good. I don’t want to play a mindless, boring game. I’ve been going through the levels with the hope that a challenge would come along.
This game is very addictive!
Game play is very simple. Takes less than 10 seconds per level. I've noticed that some levels play differently depending on which theme you have selected. Some cups hold less than others so if not all objects fit into the cup, change the theme and you will hit 100% and win. Problem: Random balls fall out of cup: sometimes a ball will fly out of the cup even if you have played perfectly. Play again the same exact same way and win without a problem. Update request: 1. Please add more building options in the town. I have reached capacity and have almost $2,000,000 coins and nothing more to buy. 2. Inconsistent play: sometimes balls fall out of the cup and cause level to fail... This is expected, but then sometimes the balls fall out of the cup and the level completes successfully. 3. Sometimes balls fall out of structure from unexpected places. Seemingly closed corners leak balls to cause level to fail. 4. It would be kind of fun of the tilt of the device helps get balls to where they need to be. Thank you!
I’m throwing in the towel
I liked this game for the first 1000 levels - it was neat to see how creative they designed the different levels, but after awhile, they begin to repeat. None is too hard, and that is nice for mindless playing, and admittedly there is something satisfying about watching these pieces drop into the beaker glass. At first I liked building the city and seeing what comes next. But when the (costliest end) buildings begin to cost 232,000 then 500,000, then 1,000,000 tokens to build a house and the rent earned only increases 100 tokens, it will take a month of playing just to earn enough to build another lineup of buildings (I have 12 buildings, and it currently is 2mil tokens to upgrade all, next it will be close to 4mil). It is no longer fun, but a chore. I’ll go to the cheapest end, max out the 20 building types, and call it good and delete the app. I’ve become numb to the ads, but it just means I’ve been game-psychologically conditioned because when they don’t show (claims of No Internet - never true), I get upset because I can’t get bonus points or the rents. That is the sign that it’s time to dump this.
The game is fun, but the levels don’t get any harder and the rewards are superficial at best, only customizing the look of the pins. There’s an entire city building function you can spend coins on or whatever, but there are already so many city building games that it feels repetitive and unnecessary to have it in a game about pulling pins and funneling balls into cups. The city building section feels like it was randomly thrown in so there was some reason to keep the players playing (and to make us keep watching ads for more coins to spend on it) but I feel like that could have been achieved simply by having a level map and making the puzzles a little trickier with each level. And players could watch ads to get access to bonuses that make difficult levels easier, though difficult puzzles should still be conquerable without those bonuses. As it is, I was having fun in the beginning but now I’m getting bored of watching the same ads over and over again just to do the same puzzles over and over again.
Not challenging enough
The game is fun, but it’s not challenging enough. The bonus games are challenging, sometimes too much - where you have to figure out how to complete them in the number of moves given - but the other games are not. It becomes very repetitive. Maybe something where you earn more for the fewer moves you use (which doesn’t seem to happen now, but I’m not entirely sure)... I also just played a level (330) where it claimed I failed it, but there was no reason why the order I chose wouldn’t work. That’s very frustrating. The ads are heinous too, and they keep freezing the game. At first I was able to avoid them by clicking the top left, they’d open in the App Store, and I’d just go back and I’d be out of them. Then that stopped working. Also, sometimes they give you the option to earn more points if you watch an ad, but then even if you say no it will still send you a 30 second ad! That’s really bad, like a slap in the face.
Fun game but...
I actually really enjoy playing this game. It’s not like the ads that lie to you about pulling pin puzzles, those kind of games would actually seem fun to me and I finally found one. I only have a few complaints, and they’re things that I found as soon as I started playing. 1. What’s with all the ads?? Seriously, after about two-three levels, there’s a 30 second unskippable ad, or if you fail a level, you have to watch a 30 second unskippable ad. This is absolutely ridiculous and it’s not a good way to support the outlook of your game. 2. Watching 30 second unskippable ads just for a skin that I earned? It takes you about 6 levels to get the first skin in the game (which is the broom) which means about 2-3 30 second ads, then I have to watch another 30 second ad. This is so stupid, it makes me want to break my phone in half or just delete the game
Not bad but more of a ‘relaxing’ activity than a game
I was hoping the levels would get tougher as you go but they really don’t. I’m on level 100 something and haven’t had to redo a level or use a life or whatever. It’s not so much a challenging or brain teaser game as it should be, more of a relaxing thing to do for fun. Which isn’t a bad thing, but when you combine that with the fact there’s an ad every couple levels, it makes it seem like they made it easy on purpose so you beat more levels and ergo have to watch more ads. Sometimes I watch one cause I beat a level then I have to watch another when the I click to start the next level. If they made it more challenging and didn’t force me to watch 30 second ads every few mins, it would def be a 5/5 game.
Gets REALLY boring👎🏻
Well let’s see here………… It was about 3:45pm when I found this game in the App Store. I thought to myself, “wow, this looks really fun!!” I decided to get the game. I sat and played it until 4:00 and I absolutely LOVED it and thought it was super fun!💖💗💕 Then, I got off of my IPad and did some things until I got back onto my iPad at 7:45pm. Since I loved pull the pin SO much❤️, I got back onto it to play it. I stared at the game, not very interested in it anymore. It is just—— this game gets very boring. I think they need to create a game that gets more challenging and is not so BORING AND EASY. Doing the same thing over and over is so boring sometimes. Also, there IS WAY TOO MANY OF THESE GAMES WITH SO MANY ADDS. PLEASE QUIT THE ADDS!! I HATE IT, I HATE IT, I HATE IT!! Guys, this is just my opinion. You guys might love it!!💖💖💖 It is super fun in the beginning and this might be an awesome game for you!! Thanks for reading my opinion!💝
It’s okay, but....
Every 20 seconds there is an ad (it only takes 10-20 seconds to complete a level). I understand the need to generate revenue, but can you please stop spamming me with ads? Always “watch an ad to get more coins,” “watch an ad to get this cool new thing that you have no idea why it would be needed,” “watch an ad to progress to the next level,” “watch an ad to build this building.” Ads! Ads everywhere! And honestly, what’s the point of spamming with ads if the difficulty never changes? A 4 year old could make the same progress I’ve made, in the same amount of time! You want to appeal to the adults that were tired of being scammed by other apps, but you do that by giving us a game for preschoolers. That’s kinda scammy too, when you think about it. Make a game that’s dirt easy, just so you can fill it with spammy ads 🤔
Ultra repetitive and no real challenge.
I played through 300 levels of this game, and when they started super easy, I thought nothing of it, because all puzzle games start off that way, but after 300 levels, it was still just as easy. There is rarely any thought involved, and earning more money or not earning more money nets you the same thirty second ads whether you chose to watch the add or not. With no real challenge after that many levels, the game just isn’t worth playing, anymore. The ads are ultra excessive, and if the game got harder than it started, I might have considered paying to remove them, but sadly that doesn’t happen. It’s not worth going add free, and can only give you a small amount of interest for a short time before you will grow completely bored of it as well.
Ads make the game unplayable
If you have epilepsy or something that makes you sensitive to flashing lights, it’s better to stay completely on the safe side and not play this. There’s a few recurring ads at the bottom of the screen that flash “notifications” at you very quickly, which was enough to give me a severe headache, so I feel like that would be especially terrible for someone who actually is sensitive to lights like that. I had to keep the bottom of my screen covered the whole time I was playing, since there’s no way to change the ad for something that’s less grating on your eyes. If you tap on them, they don’t actually link you anywhere, so I really don’t get the point. There’s ads between about every level, and at most these levels take ten seconds, so it feels like a constant barrage of the same advertisements. The levels don’t challenge your brain even remotely, and the difficulty of them doesn’t change. I made it to about 70 before I finally gave up on this game. This game isn’t worth your time.
