Lots of unremovable ads, quick 3:20 game
By Bob Hob
So, off the bat - buying “remove ads” doesn’t actually remove the ads. You have to watch a 30 second ad to “start bigger,” which is the only way to win. You also have to watch a 30 second ad to double your winnings, which is the only way to advance quickly. You only don’t _have_ to watch a 5 to 30 second ad after every game, if you don’t want to. So the 2:00 game takes about 3:20 after ads.
You play against (this goes without saying, but other reviews don’t seem to agree) an AI to grow your little crowd to the biggest mob by absorbing white neutral people and your AI enemies. The problem with the game, that costs it a star, is the AI doesn’t play to win, it plays to keep you from winning. It is very easy, you should win at least 8/10 games. But it is very very difficult to win by eliminating all the enemies. They do not go to the center or to each other, but run to the opposite corners and edges of the game board. They often just hover in the corners, not moving or growing, but making it impossible to catch them all. It is not possible to cover the whole board in two minutes, so you will often leave at least one, sometimes two or three enemies alive. Otherwise it is a satisfying, quick game. There’s just something about running your crowd through an enemies crowd, watch your people split and absorb the enemy people.
Great game but one problem
Hi if you are reading this you probably do not have the game so let me tell you something. This is a great game, good skins, it’s easy, and you get addictive to it. You start small but you get big fast. You’ll like all of it but one thing. If you look at the other reviews they probably say something about the adds. I thought it would be fine. But every game there is an add. I don’t really like that and I don’t think other people do to. They should just put an add every 2-5 games. But other than that the game is fine and cool. You when your playing, you feel like your going against bots, but you’ll lose sometimes. I’m not much of a person who rages at these types of games so I’m fine, but if you rage, you’ll probably not rage that much since it’s easy. You’ll like the game and it’s skins. So if you want the be careful cause of the adds but like I said other than that it’s fine. I just wanted to put this out there. Enjoy the game!
Lovely game, maybe needs something more
By Eleanor Is Tah Bomb
This game is amazing! I love it just as much as anyone should. It’s so fun to play in the car on a long drive. (of course not as the driver) it’s so good for people just beginning in the gaming community. I really should introduce this game to my friends, I bet they would love it! But if someone is reading this and wondering why I only put four stars, here's your answer. Of course I love the game but, it gets kinda boring I feel they could do so much more with it. Like, real time games, adding some more skins, etc. it does seem like they kinda gave up on the game. But I’ve had this game for at least two years, and never have I seen a bad review, well I don’t think I’ve seen one. But still in all my life, other then apps I kinda need. This is the one that I HAD to keep. Of course I might not play very often but I still think, this is one of the best apps I have! I don’t plan on deleting it. If the developers of the game do see this, I ask that you put a bit more effort In the game. Just adding some more so people don’t get bored of it! That’s all I ask but just know, this game is amazing! And please don’t change any of it other then what people complain about. Thank you!
Just let us actually compete with each other.
This game is by far, addictively amazing. But, I’m concerned with more then one thing. First of all, A.I’s as the so-called players in this game. Some games DO have A.I’s as the components for the player. But, this game actually said that it was an online game with ACTUAL people. How do I know that they are A.I’s? Well, the creative names that the players have is totally unrealistic. Especially since the most people that play this game is children, who couldn’t possibly spend time just coming up with names like “S’more Vixen” or “Jurassic Savior” Even if. People do come up with a name that you don’t hear of often, Why would I repeatedly see the same name like these but never manage to get in a game with my friends! Because if. A.I’s. Also, If there were real people, I would have actual competition, but I alway’s seem to win the games, why? Since I’m about to finish up, let me end with this. So many people like me have given similar reviews, the developers of this game haven’t even lifted a finger to reply to one of them, much less actually change these problems. I guess what I’m trying to prove, is for this game to ACTUALLY give us the real crowd experience.
Fun game but could use tweaking
This is a fun game! My kids even play it. Not sure why it’s rated 12+. It’s fun to have goals to earn new skins. For some reason though I don’t have the flamingo anymore and that one was my favorite. It would be fun to have different “worlds”. This one is just the same map but you start in a different section each time. Pretty soon you get to know the map well. After awhile too, you rank up but soon there’s no more ranking and you’ve reached the highest point you can go. I thought there should be a list of “high scores” to compete with other players. Recently there was an update that includes “halftime” which pauses the game midway through the time. Not sure what the point of this is?! It needs to be eliminated! Also there’s now an option of extending your time, maybe to finish collecting more guys? But also pointless. You need to watch an ad to “earn” this but then nothing happens after the ad. The game is still over. I think more skins should be added too. It is a fun game but could use some tweaks.
Deleting this fake multiplayer game!
By Dropkick Hero
Like other reviews, my experience started off easy where I was winning every game I played. Over time, it’s become clear to me that you’re playing against AI and not other users, as you can still play without cell signal or WiFi, and other players somehow wait for you to watch an ad before they move in what’s portrayed as “real time.” After a few days, I’m to the point where other crowds run from you and into the path of larger crowds. They are all placed near each other where they can quickly acquire each other and start off with an advantage over you, but you have to chase them for 15 seconds before you come in contact with any of them. Almost every crowd I chase to acquire suddenly decides to sacrifice themselves to another crowd so that I have a larger crowd to contend with. The only way to have a chance is to watch some 30 second ad to get 10 extra pieces, even after paying for no ads. This would be fun if you actually had multiplayer instead of passing off AI as multiplayer, and at least programming your AI to act more like other players instead of working together to make the game more difficult for actual users. Good concept, but very misleading.
Fun concept but it’s AI
I got the game and was having a ton of fun at first. Seemed like I caught on really easily or something but then I noticed things were too easy. I was winning 95% of games just off the bat, I’m good at games but not THAT good which made me suspicious. Started paying attention to names and noticed that I came across every single name at least twice over a long series of rounds, and none of them were the generic “player” name. You’d think that in a popular free mobile game like this you’d have a much larger player pool, and that there would be AT LEAST 1 person who didn’t bother to change their name and went as player, like me my first few rounds. Also in a few rounds I noticed that there was a bit of an enemy team visible on my start screen, but they were immobile until I pressed start, which for one point was about 45 seconds. Right when I pressed start they sprang to life tho. However I’ve never had to wait on an enemy team to join in over 100 games. This, coupled with my ridiculous win rate and the fact that the enemies play like AI (predictable movement, too focused on gathering over killing), I have to say that this game does not in fact deliver the pvp multiplayer experience it claims.
My game might be broken
They made an update like today or yesterday, but it doesn’t say they did, but my game is completely different. I know this because I play this game every day, and I had like 18 people for my crowd and it went down to 1. I wasn’t upset, I thought I’d just work my way back up again. And I got 3 other people in my crowd and I closed out of the app and it didn’t save my people, so you basically start at square one every time you close out of your tab. So it is impossible to have a big crowd or keep any of the updates without keeping a tab open for however long, and even if people did that, they would accidentally close out of it eventually. And the adds never really bothered me that much because all of these games have them, but they added a halftime that stops everyone in the middle of the game to watch an add. It was my favorite game that I was addicted to, and now you can’t get good at it, and the adds have multiplied. I really don’t wanna get rid of this app cause I use it so much, but I can’t waste my time if it’s like this. This has taken all of the fun out of it and I don’t wanna play it this way. Please remove the update so I can play my favorite game again!
Some things I dont like..
By James Maya
Some things I dont like about this game is that when I was little, I thought I was going against real players in different places. But now, its clear to me that every ‘player’ you go against is an AI. I figured this out by realizing how often I win the games I play. The names of every AI is very creative, considering how they are all AIs. The skins on every player is fake, too. The skins were probably randomly generated or, the creators wanted to give this game the aspect of real players going against you, but its very fake. To make it seem like there were noobs and pros in every game, the creators make most of the AIs the skin you get when you first start playing, and some skins you earn from playing more often. Its looks very realistic, yet, its actually very fake. I do recommend you play this game, its very addicting to the point where you play it all the time. But, dont believe the players you go against. Its all fake.
Fun time killer
Most people should know by now that the .io games b Voodoo are just time killers but they are enjoyable because they are just that. The only reason why I give this game 4 stars instead of 5 is because some of the skins aren’t unlocking like they should, namely the finish with 1 and the consecutive days login, at least it is during time of this review. The other thing is if you play more than about 8 or 10 games in a row the game starts to get really glitchy and freezes up a bit so you have to completely close out and restart.
I did read others say that the only way to win is by watching the ads, but this isn’t true. While I haven’t won a ton of games I’ve played without the ads I have won some. And the fact that the AI runs to opposite sides of the map is what makes the game fun. What fun would it be if everyone just ran to the center of the map and you knew where to get them? I like the gameplay and find it enjoyable, especially for a 2 minute time killer! Great job!
