CRAZY ABOUT CHOICES!
By Mandy Dope
I’m borderline obsessed with these books. I’ve played them all! Every story is different from the next and, being a writer myself, I really appreciate all of the character development. There’s no question that a lot of thought goes into the customizing, the art, the music, and the dialogues. My favorites include The Freshman (makes me feel young again LOL), Royal Romance, and the newer books like Desire & Decorum, as well as Perfect Match. Once you get into it, the characters really come alive and It’s hard to stop playing! I discovered Choices about a year ago, and very quickly went through all the stories. I gave them 5 stars because they’ve truly mastered the art of virtual reality and I would absolutely die to work for Pixelberry someday! My only complaints are that I’ve paid more than I can really afford on diamonds, and you have to wait anxiously for new chapters and books. Like someone mentioned in another review, I would much rather spend $10-$20 on the app at initial download, rather than pay as I go. Or even offering 2-5 diamonds after watching an ad instead of just 1. Heck, I’d even watch more ads if it meant earning more diamonds! Otherwise, Choices is brilliant and beautifully done. I’ve laughed, I’ve cried, and I’ve learned a lot about myself through these characters- as cheesy as that sounds. These stories are never dull, and contain a lot of twists and turns. I highly recommend Choices over any other competitor apps! Loveee!
Just the best
Choices, without a doubt, is the best game I have ever played. I have had it for almost a year and still look forward to new chapter being released, and reread my favorite stories. Choices’s books have taught me so much about family, relationships, love, and the importance of making a choice. Our choices truly do define us, which I think is the whole message of the game if you could boil it down. Have you ever wanted to attend a school of magic? Find love in Jane Austen’s England? Captain a star ship? Seek vengeance in Ancient Rome? Become a superhero? Marry a king? Fight for your crown? Or just try to survive high school? There is a book out there for everyone, I promise. However, If you only play one book series, please play Endless Summer. Inspired by the tv show Lost, this book is a tear jerking, heart string pulling, hair raising, mind bending beautiful adventure that I cherished every minute of and cannot wait to re read. Anyway, do yourself a favor and get this game. It sure changed my life. Thank you Pixelberry.
p.s. Many people complain about the diamonds and yeah, I sometimes wish there were less choices that require diamonds each chapter (Across the Void is notoriously bad at this) but there are plenty of games that only have one or two diamond choices per chapter, and you certainly don’t have to spend any diamonds to enjoy each book. I have never spent any real money on this game which has not hindered or lessened my game experience in any way.
Loyal reader for years!

I don’t even remember when I started playing Choices but I know forsure that I have been here when they only had less than ten books. Of all of the story games I’ve played, Choices has to be my favorite one. The stories are so well-written and compelling. I’m so invested in most of them. I’ve had my gasping/jaw dropper moments during a twist, my laughs, my cheers for a prevailing character, or occasionally even a curse towards the antagonist(s). Personal favorites: Perfect Match (genius concept!!!), The Junior (SPECIFICALLY this one for the ATM storyline), the Bloodbound series, the It Lives anthology, and Love Hacks (underrated series). Notable mention: Endless Summer’s artwork was BEAUTIFUL. I tell my friends about the stories sometimes, they’re all so good! I feel like I’m reading visual novels more than just playing a game. The artwork and soundtracks have definitely also progressed a lot. I love that they have so much diversity when it comes to sexuality and ethnicity! I hope future updates will allow for different body types as well. For a while I was using the option to buy diamonds and get 120 initially and earn 10 more a day for, I think 40 days? I didn’t realize that the option disappeared when you stopped renewing it. I’d love for that deal, or for other similar deals, to always be available! Anyways, mad respect for Pixelberry. I really hope they turn some of these stories (*cough* Perfect Match) into feature films one day!
BloodBound Part II
Choices It’s a wonderful addition to the older app episodes. I think that so far the riders for this app are extremely talented and it will go really far. One thing that I think that Choices can work on is making the choices that require gems more realistic. There are certain things that we shouldn’t have to pay for and I understand that you have to make a profit, but the people that use this app also have to pay bills. This app is extremely amazing and I absolutely love it.?There are so many things for so many people, and there’s always something that you can do. If you like to scream your head off there are stories for that. If you like to laugh there are stories for that. If you want to fall in love with the characters there are stories for that. If you want to go on an adventure there are stories for that. So again there’s something for everyone. One thing that I want to talk about is the story Blood Bound. Choices writers NEED to have a part two because that is my favorite one and there is yet to be an update while there are new stories being written and other stories getting updated I think that Blood Bound should get updated as well. Choices will have you hooked until the end. The stories are amazing, the characters are amazing and have very diverse personalities. I personally think that anyone who tries this app will fall in love immediately.
Choices has, by far, the best story telling and art for a Visual novel app out there, but it’s suffering severely in the lack of diamond earning. I put it down for months out of frustration for how much it cost to get through a single chapter. You have to spend weeks of time playing unrelated stories, that you also can’t really enjoy or don’t have interest in, just to earn enough diamonds mid chapter of your favorite story. You can’t even replay old stories to earn diamonds? So even if you blitz through a book to earn diamonds so you can go back and experience the diamond choices, you waste a ton of time and keys because you can’t earn diamonds replaying the book. An entire book doesn’t even cover the cost of the majority of a SINGLE diamond choice! At this rate, we will have to go through EVERY story released, using no diamonds, just to finish a favorite book and get the various scenes.
I’d suggest holiday diamond earning bonuses or sales. I’ve seen a daily “wheel spin” or “loot box” suggestion that could be great too. Something to incentivize coming back to the app every day, or splurging on a sale, and not just to scroll carelessly through a story that doesn’t interest you just to collect a couple diamonds per day.
I love the stories, I just hate how incredibly pricy and irregular the diamond costs are. 30 diamonds for an early hangout scene (Dean in RoE) but 17 or so for an actual romance scene? I don’t want to talk about the cockroach situation.
baby bump 2
I have Been seriously waiting for this story to come out and today my app had an update and this story should be out book 2 should be there but it’s not so how much longer is it going to take I supposed to be able to Deliver twins and be able to see it it also saids premiering each week so we’re is the story for this update like it saids why is it taking so long and also another book that’s supposed to be out ride or die book two that’s supposed to be out when is it coming out because I looked and there is supposed to be a book 2 just like this one Baby bump two choices the same version everyone has 2.7.7 waiting for baby bump book 2 said that it be here in the app 3 weeks ago also book two of ride or die I have been waiting for because this book is a series and this website said this book will have a second book and platinum we want a book 2 please hurry up and give us book 2 of these books but let out baby bump book 2 cause we have been waiting for a while to read it I want to silver the twins it said it be returning this update so what’s the hold up when will we be able to read baby bump two and ride or die two or a platinum 2 cause it’s 2020 and it’s supposed to be out I been waiting for a while since last year cause we had to wait till this year 2029 for second book series of baby bump
I think that This is an amazing app. But there is one thing that I don’t like that much at all I really don’t like that you have to have at least one key to read the book or just a chapter. If you could read it as long as you want and you won’t have to put a key for to read the chapter or anything like that then this would be an amazing Reading game the only reason I really like this is pretty much the books there’s some really interesting books are used to hate to read I never like to reading but now with these books sometimes I just can’t stop reading. But sometimes I guess the game stops me from reading because I don’t have at least one care to read it so of course I have to wait like two or three hours I don’t remember what it is but I think it was three hours until you get a freaky and I really don’t like that. That’s why I only gave it four stars instead of five stars I had only give it five stars if it’ll let you read it whenever you want what lets you read whenever you want but you need a certain amount of keys and I wish it would let you read even if you didn’t have enough keys that’s what would make it a really good book no and amazing game that’s what I meant so I hope everyone that reads my message will get this book I mean game and try out for themselves and I don’t wanna read what you guys think if you do it four stars or five stars or maybe even agree with me.
Love this, but...
Hey guys! I love this game SO MUCH! Like, these are the things that make me throw my phone when I get a cliffhanger... ANYWAY! So, I keep playing (loving Hero, by the way) and I realize: if you want to really experience half the stuff, you have to pay diamonds. Now, premium currency is something I've always loved. It helps give the creators money. But the diamond system in this game... it just doesn't make sense. Like, I'm playing Hero ~(SPOILER ALERT)~ and I'm at the point where you can customize the clock tower base, and it costs 30 diamonds to make it awesome. Now, I wouldn't mind if the system was that you can get a max of like 15 diamonds a day. And that's IF you play a new story every time, and you play 24 hours straight. So, since I don't have that kind of time, I have to pause my adventures for a few weeks until I can make enough to buy it. Same happened with Endless Summer ~(ALSO SPOILER ALERT)~ where at the end you get the files to hack the password. So I had to play the first two books of The Freshman, which took me a month, and then, not ten minutes later, in Crown and Flame ~(YOU KNOW THE DRILL)~ "Spend 12 diamonds to save the Prince." So, either make diamonds easier to get (my idea is a HUGE diamond bonus at the end of a book, like ten diamonds or so) or make the premium choices cheaper. I'll fix my rating afterwards.
NOW, ONTO THE GOOD STUFF YOU'VE BEEN DOING~ Guys, keep up the good work! And please hurry up with Most Wanted 2! Love that one!
PLEASE READ THESE SUGGESTIONS TO HELP IMPROVE GAMING EXPERIENCE.
i love this game and i appreciate the new updates that your guys did and i always appreciate when you guys add new content. the only thing i recommend is giving us 5 keys instead of only 2 keys. that would make me want to play more. it takes forever waiting for the keys. also if you invite facebook friends you should get keys for that and you should be able to gift your facebook friends keys just like a-lot of the other games in the app store. my next suggestion is being able to go back and reread old chapters you've already done in case you haven't played in a long time and you have forgot whats going on. also you need to make the premium choices less expensive. i mean it does takes us forever to get enough diamonds to make one premium choice. you guys need to add a choice in settings that allows us to delete all progress and start over as if we've never played before. also you guys can add achievements and give us diamonds for completing each achievement. also please add offers that we can complete to receive free diamonds. also you need to make it so that if we purchase any amount of diamonds that we will remove ads forever. the final thing i suggest is offering a subscription service that will make us a VIP members and we will have content to VIP episode and also VIP members will receive daily diamonds. there is alot of things you can add to this game to make it better such as daily log in bonuses.
❤️Love the game but....❤️
The game itself is really amazing. The books are intriguing and the interface is super easy to use which is always nice. Some things that could be better is the diamonds/choices. I know that you get a diamond after playing each chapter which is nice and you even get the option to watch an ad for an additional diamond but you should be able to watch more ads for diamonds. Most people that own these types of apps are usually low on whatever method they use for the optional choices within the book. It would be nice if there was some other way to earn diamonds. It would really make the experience better in my opinion. One other thing I don’t particularly like is the key waiting time. The fact that I have to wait three hours for one key is kinda ridiculous. It takes six hours for the max amount of keys (which is two) to replenish. It really takes away from the experience. Sometimes I forget about the game entirely and don’t come back for days, even weeks because I just forget. Sure the notifications help but I just wish there were some other way to get keys. One idea is like the diamonds where you can watch an ad or two for another key. It would get me playing the game more and just enjoy the app more without forgetting the app or the story. Otherwise the game is fantastic. I would definitely recommend this to my friends that like these sorts of games.
