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.
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.
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😌
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.
Kinda getting annoying
By only two problems
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.

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!
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.
Pros and Cons
By Athena Nerd 16
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!
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
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.
